I never realised just how hilly and contoured it is.

Up to you, it's no problem for me though. My part is no more difficult whether the course has a lot of contour or not. It would be a nice addition to PGA 2000 to have this course.

David! Good Luck on this project! As you already said Shinnecock Hills is more hilly,undulated and has tricky contours then most people realize

Here's the plot: http://www.zagerdesign.com/temp/southam ... outing.zip

I've routed Shinnecock on it with the course routing tool because I figured it would be pretty hard for you to tell where the holes are on this big piece of land. I used what looked like the back tees although you may want to double check them. Seemed like they were building new back tees in, maybe for the next US Open in there 2018, so I don't know if that's what you want to use. I also roughed in green shapes. Images I used for reference were form Google Earth.

There are actually 4 different courses on the land of this plot! Shinnecock, National Golf Links of America, Sebonack Golf Club, and Southampton Golf Club. If anyone else wants to take this plot and do any of those courses I could route them with the course routing tool as well.

Hi Brian, just finished looking at website and photos. Sebonack looks awesome! I would like to give that a go. Thanks for doing that.

OK sure, if you want I can send you everything so you can open it in Terrain Assist and trace everything. It's really not that hard and I can help if you have any questions about it. Otherwise I'll just do the routing for you. Let me know.

Thanks Brian. I appreciate that. I'm still trying to learn how to do it so I don't have to bother you everytime.
