This is really good course, played 1 round and had no problems also on Nvidia. Everything looks spot on.

Just played a few holes and tournament objects along with spectators give life to what are barren links style courses that some Open sites can wind up being otherwise. Carnoustie shows better than most others with creeks at end and has history that people well remember of past Opens played there. Through hole #3 in play and pulled drive to left winding up in creek. Lie was shown as being not in creek, even though red lines and red stakes quite obviously designated that I was in a lateral water hazard. I believe was said to be on gravel that could play from, but also checking the rough between the red lines is not a penalty either if not roll down to gravel area at bottom. I was playing normal round and not in practice mode.

It is more memorable than that of Paul Lawrie being 10 shots back at start of final round and winning or of Van de Velde along with Justin Leonard losing eventually 4 hole playoff. I believe Van de Velde said, "Je suis très bête." having had triple bogey on his last hole of tournament creating playoff.

Not to worry-I'll be nitpicking tomorrow and will send you a PM when I'm done. Give me a few days. :whistle:
BTW-tournament objects, clubhouse, crowds and surrounding houses are magnificent-among the greatest I have ever seen!

Thanks v much Pete.
I had a crash too after I said I thought I'd sorted it !
You can play on usually but it would be nicer not to have the enforced break.

When I have a crash I reinstall links2003 and it plays ok for a while.
Seems like some memory is filling up until it snaps.

Thanks gene_golf
I'll have to look at the burn/creek on 3 and 4 and 5. In the summer that part of the burn is always dry and it is gravel at the bottom. Maybe I should make it a hazard so that you have to drop. The rough under the red lines will need a little more thought and fiddling but I'll have a go at making it a hazard too.

First of all, fantastic course rendition. Love it. A couple of observations:
No cameo screen but I'm sure that's to come.
No hole handicaps yet.
While playing in practice mode, some holes still have spectators. I thought they shouldn't be visible in practice mode. What"s more, if you hit into them in practice mode, they don't disperse like they usually do and you can be hitting into them.
Anyway, great course so far.
