I agree with nearly all of the previously posts. We are so fortunate that these designers have kept this great game alive for so long. Thank you to all the designers and those who keep Links Corner up and running so this game can continue to thrive.

I’ll threw in a couple of courses from Guenter Kujat, one of the most prolific early designers; Golf Club Gut Larchenhof and Munchen Nord – Eichenried, both around the 7200 yard range. Shame he disappeared early in 2003. Glenn Braden updated Golf Club Gut Larchenhof in 2016. Glenn is also a very prolific designer in his own right and has designed or helped with many quality courses, with a few mentioned in this thread. Thank you Glenn! :clapping:

Pretty much any of the Stewart Parker courses are terrific (28 releases!).
Just played Turnberry the Ailsa Course HD the other day. Primo!
Makes me want to go over there and play it in person.

Duine Mara by Paul Seaman Par 70 6983 yds. Links style - A real beauty without pot bunkers - beautiful panorama - played along ocean and can hear the sound of waves throughout round. Good size fairways and easy greens. Play with wind, rain, overcast to give it an authentic feel of being there. Want to keep it on the fairways - if you miss you no doubt will lose a shot or more on that hole. That`s what keeps us coming back for another go at it. A definite Major can be played here. This is one awesome course. :smile:

Boat of Garten Tournament by by Stewart Parker Par 70 6694 yds. Beautiful course - shorter than normal but each hole has it`s own challenge - uphill, downhill and approach shots keep it interesting. Panorama one of the best. Excellent planting of the grasses and heather. 5th,6th,12th and 13th look great and are quite the challenge. Middle Tees actually longest 6694 Yds - Back Tees 6017 Yds. Playability very good and looks so beautiful. Wow! :smile:

Innisbrook-Copperhead by Glenn Braden Par 71 7290 yds. Very nice design - mixed trees relatively clean underneath - good size fairways - lots of water. I like the textures on fairway and greens. Fairway and greens are good size and play very well - looks lush. Great work on cart paths and planting ect. Plays best in breeze and windy if you like a good challenge. Renders slower than usual. Good test of shot making and choice of club. Nice looking course. :smile:

The Meadows by Paul Woodbury Par72 7671 yds. Beautiful mixed forest course in an early fall setting. Another favourite of mine. Lots of water. Fairway - greens all in good condition. A long course but plays fairly easy. Plays and looks excellent. Can play all conditions. Nice! :smile:

The Links at Ballylecum Castle by Jon Weinrieb Par 72 7055 yds. Beautiful course stretching out along ocean - plays great and need to stay out of deep grass. Awesome sound file with this one. Slap of ocean and sound of bagpipes at start of round at 8th and again on 18th green sounds perfect. Excellent background - so fitting. Pot Bunkers! Need to play this with wind for an authentic round. Can try different conditions wet, dry ect. and even change of sky. All kinds of fun with this course This is gem! :smile:

Olympia Fields CC North Course by Ken Boltz Par 70 7198 yds. Another good parkland course with mostly leaf trees skirting the fairways and clean underneath. Nice colour contrast between fairways, greens and rough. Not much in the way of water to contend with. Greens are where the action is on this course. Add wind a round or two for a good test. Plays and looks very good. :smile:

PGA National Golf Club - Champion Course by Douglas Hurst and Glenn Braden Par 70 7142 yds. Very nice tropical course - clean under trees - wide fairways and easy greens. Lots of water, does not really affect play until last 4 or 5 holes and great planting around water areas. Nice homes around the perimeter. Would not mind living in one. Play this one in all conditions. Renders a bit slow. Excellent! :smile:
