Hi there sandwedge, and yes thanks for staying interested .... lol
While everyone's been getting on with it and uploading some great stuff, I changed only one thing and that forced me all the way back to erm, 'adjust' the pano.
There's now barely anything left from the original pano except perhaps the distant back ground. But I can finally get to routing and design to the objects already built into the pano. Anyway, see what you guys think ...

... then there's one final pic.
The major problem was starting from the original photographs placing the taker high up on a meadow and causing nightmares trying to keep the correct perspectives. The screenies are from a flat empty track, but already when just swinging a stick out there it feels like every hole is sloping downhill. Though the course work won't likely need much elevation work and should be a lot quicker build for that. Here's hoping, lol ...

Pye - love it. So much lovely detail in there too, especially the train(!) You might have to be careful on routing so that it (the train) remains the right size in relation to the hole (having some troubles with that on kruger) but otherwise it looks fantastic mate.

Thanks there Dunc, you're right about the train ... nice to have a fresh set of eyes look it over. A sweep of sudden mist breezing through the mountain will have to sort it, I've no more finnicky pano patience left :) Like the look of your Kruger too, its just great to see the recent design flourish.

Long, long way to go yet but I think that 'rain forestry' look I was after, with the birches and ferns will make the rest of designing a lot more fun than the photoshopping, which becomes a tad tedious after a few months, lol.

Pye! Very Very nice Pano. Most of the planting looks real good too. Keep up the good work.

So, wanted to drop these off here, in case any of you boys took a a look and spotted any major flaws. Its tough play-testing against only the girls tour, a guy can justify any mistakes. ;)
Pretty much at the end of this design now, if not sanity, and ready to upload soon. More likely it'll disappear off out into the universe somewhere, given my filing skillset, but I'll read the procedure before trying and think lucky. Some of the buildings need a trim, a little re-planting here and there and a disciplined inspection around bunkers and greens, and that'll do it.
Anyways, here's the full 18 tee shots, 3 per post:
