Re: Wahat Al Sahraa

I really like the looks of the layout! Some great golf shots are going to be needed! Pete I did some reading up on the use of lakes, the main point that came out of it was that most of the time your lakes should be to the left of the hole as more golfers slice than hook. There will be more bunkers ...

Re: Wahat Al Sahraa

Steve, do you lay out your course first, and at what point do you do your elevations? It really depends. With this I did some work with the terrain builder after shaping the lakes. I then laid out the holes guided by the terrain and then put in tees and greens, followed by fairways and bunkers. The...

Re: Wahat Al Sahraa

Keep going. APCD is difficult to learn (or relearn in my case). I'm doing the easier stuff at the moment. I will have to watch the tutorials on seam blending again.

Wahat Al Sahraa

or Desert Oasis is something I'm going to work on while we are locked down. Tried looking at some real courses, but find the whole Google Earth elevation thing very tiresome. It's over 7200 yards and will have 3 or 4 sets of tees. The "desert" will be playable dirt, as I hate setting it as a hazard....

Re: Returning to APCD

Was hoping to use Google Earth and input elevations manually for this course, but a lot of the course is showing as being at the same height as the sea!

Will have to think about how to approach this as the sea and dunes are an important part of the course :wallbash:

Re: Returning to APCD

There are quite a few worth looking at, but I'm trying to avoid the ones running through estates of houses.

Returning to APCD

Library I work at is now closed for the foreseeable future.

Thought I might give course building another go to pass some time. Thought I would do a basic course using this course as a template https://www.almoujgolf.com/18-hole-course/, especially as there as so few courses from the Middle East.
