Not 100% positional wise Pye, some of the holes are out a little bit in some areas in relation to each other, but the yardages are bang on.

Well David, by itself, the discipline required to resist the odd detour from a fixed plan here and there, is cause for much admiration.

Even after months of such meticulous elevation and routing work all the time swearing to remain conscious of not touching even one inch further when beginning the planting and such, there seems to be always a better final option ... y'know, if I just tweak this, then that ... then oops. Been following Robert's old of method of completing one hole at a time before moving along, today as I reached the fifth tee, I looked back and found that I've actually 'adjusted' every greenside along the way. Considerably :/

Kudos Sir.

Plot & textures finished.
Thinking of revisiting my bunkering and reworking them to get the Birkdale look.
Then it's time to plant the grass and add the crowds.

David! It's looking REALLY GOOD. The original and your version don't even look like they're the same course.

Should be able to upload Birkdale this weekend.
Been away for a few days, but just a few final tweeks and we are good to go.
