Redstone Tournament Course 2017 by Colin Jones Par 72 7450 yds. Very nice course. Mostly tall pine forest - cut back far enough not to be a concern. Good amount of water - not a concern as well unless one gets sloppy. It`s set up for tournament play - Shell Houston Open. Can play breeze and wind on this course. Looks good and plays good. Excellent. :smile:

TPC Sawgrass Stadium 2001 by Anders Bessermann Par 72 7087 Yds. Beautiful clean pine tree setting - good deep green colours and lots of water. Greens will test your putting. White sand in bunkers. Looks as good as or better than newer ones - the 2007 or 2008 edition in my eyes anyway. Plays excellent and looks great. Play with breeze and wind as well. Very Nice! :smile:

Smokey Hills By Leigh Seaman Par 72 6854 yds. Beautiful course and plays great. Mountain backdrop with a pine tree forest. Not much water to worry about. A well laid out design - looks beautiful - very good par 5 finishing hole. Also nice to see small village on the 11th in background. Play this in mid summer with breeze and wind. Very nice. :smile:

Excelsior by Adriaan Maarschalk Par 71 7420 yds. This is an excellent golf course - loved look of the mountain and hills in the background with the look of the sun shining on them. Very nice look of fairways and greens from tees - nice contrast to backdrop. Pot bunkers on this course - apparently this course set somewhere in Africa. Good test of placement of tee shot - loved the 18th par 5 option to go for it or not on 2nd shot. I chose not and eagled it from 112 yds out - which was nice way to finish. Play this with breeze and wind to really have some fun. Awesome! :smile:

Hunters Wood 2012 by Ken Boltz updated by Lez Marwick Par 72 7267 yds. Beautiful course - plays great too. Water will come into play at times. Loved the 13th par 5 3rd shot into green and the old building behind green - looked really nice. Par 5 18th and nice finishing hole and very nice look coming into green with the clubhouse overlooking green - gives an authentic look to course. Can see a lot of work has been done on this course and it makes it shine. Its a gem. :smile:

TPC at the Woodlands 2005 by Alan Price 2001, upgrade by David Russell 2003 & upgrade by Ross Mackenzie 2005. Par 72 7240 yds. Pine woodland course cleared under trees. Nice blue water and does come into play on some holes. Housing along perimeter of the course looks good. Nice little xtras
on some tees by way of signs. Par 5 13th island green and 17th par 4 are good tests. Greens are no pushover. All in all great course to play. Can play breeze and wind as well. Good course to play. :smile:

Falcon Ridge 2001 by John Borycheski Par 72 7364 yds. An early APCD design - done very well. Mountain course with pine forest. Good dark green colours that blend well together. Greens will be the challenge. Nice little creek meanders along and across some fairways. Beautiful look on 14th and 15th holes from tees. Plays and looks excellent. Try windy for a real challenge. :smile:

The Mountain Course at Seneca 2001 by by Ed Balaun Par 71 7062 yds. An oldie but goldie - I have always liked this course. Looks beautiful - Mountain course in fall colours - very nice colourful planting of flowers. When you first step on course at first tee - Pow the fall colours come at you very loud but then it feels like it quiets down some and becomes a really very nice course to play. Fairways are open and a nice mountain backdrop. Greens are mostly easy. Need to use analyzer to read greens. Can enjoy a nice peaceful walk with a round of golf or add some wind. Plays excellent. A keeper! :smile:

Six Mile Lake Golf Course 2014 by McCoist par 72 7267 yds. Very nice golf course - Mountain panorama with a pine forest cut back enough to play even in windy conditions. Lots of water on this one and it looks good. Fairways and greens very good. Good colour combinations. Can see lots of planning and work went into this design. Top notch! :smile:
