I've handed the course over to Glenn for his magical touch. :clapping:
When Glenn is finished I will pass it on to Pete for pin placement then we should be ready to go.

Was a pleasure to work on such a marvelous course, I hope I got things right. :dunno:

Question...............Do I somehow figure out a way to include them or not?
Let me know....................
Personally not a fan of houses, but don't mind them if they're there. I don't see the value-add.
No matter where you go, there you are.

Not a fan of tournament objects either.

Given this picture it looks as if houses are already on course. If actually were to decide to put houses in between holes or surrounding holes---is there a lot of houses in a library to use?

To be consistent and realistic the houses would have to be 3D. There are no modern 3d houses in any APCD library that I know of. 2D houses would not work very well. They rotate with the viewer.
It's easy to make 2D objects, not so with 3D objects. It would be VERY time consuming................
Some designers have made their own 3D houses on their courses but nothing for 3D libraries for import that I know of.

Take a look at "The National Golf Club of Kansas City". It has every 3D house available in the planting sets. I believe I may have been the first designer to lay out a course thru the middle of a subdivision and place a 3D house on each of the Google Earth aerial views. From the TOP view in Links, it looks like the actual aerial GE scenery, and from playing the course, each of the homes have a modern-day looking house planted on it.
With a little patience and determination, you could add 3D houses on some courses from the planting set. Wakonda Club is another one I added a lot of houses to on top of the GE aerial scenery.

Best wishes,

Dan
