That is great to hear! Good luck with the project. It looks like the area has fairly high detail on Google Earth (I have no idea if you'd be able to find anything more accurate than that or not for this particular course), so unless someone comes up with anything better - take a look at this topic viewtopic.php?f=7&t=103

Some additional advice about Google Earth:

-If you set Google Earth to show feet instead of meters, you're able to see elevation readings more accurate.

-While grabbing screenshots of GE to put into APCD, consider whether the latest historical images are easier to work with or not, compared to the default 3D one.

-While grabbing screenshots of GE to put into APCD, turn off the "Terrain" filter temporarily, to avoid stretching based on viewpoint, for more horizontal accuracy.

Oh and also, Colin Jones figured out a way to speed up the GE elevation process, see viewtopic.php?f=7&t=966
Finished APCD Projects: Amedal GK (own design), Whirlpool GC (update), Royal Lytham & St Annes (update) Royal St George's (update),
Working on: Nine Bridges @Jeju Island (Real course) + a couple things...
