Best way to contour the green is to buy a green book from Strackaline, they are not cheap for us Canadians but they offer the most detailed info on the greens and which way they slope. There is a very detailed post in here about using the green contour books to set the greens elevations. I did a practice green of Angus Glen and its tedious but the effort is very well worth the result. :cheers1:

Merci Hopeless!
Actually I may have found something that will give me something workable as far as my course is concerned...I just stumbles across a video.

It's a Youtube that unfortunately is only for my course. How does this look?

Unless there's a free (or almost free) download of Strakaline-is that what all of you designers use?
