Long par 4. Not sure about which trees I like, but I think the grass will stay.

Really like what I've seen so far. Keep up the good work. I haven't used the architect since Horseshoe Hills was released. I think I've finely decided what type of course I'm going to create. It will be different then anything else I've ever attempted before. It will still probably be a few weeks before I get started though.

Hi Doron, it looks like you're making good progress. I agree about the grass and trees.

Well, 6 days of work each week has really hindered my progress on this course. Hopefully it will slow down a little so I can get back into this one.

Here is likely the hardest hole on the front 9 -- #5

A look from the fairway. A drive of about 285 yards will be even with the middle of the bunker, leaving a mid to long iron into a peninsula green.

Looks fantastic and love the strategy of the course so far.

Got the house to myself tonight, so maybe I can get a hole or 2 finished while watching the PGA. Several drivable par 4s on this course and I think I'll try working on those first.

There are 5 possible driveable par 4's on this course, and all have water and/or swampy areas to contend with. Here is the 6th hole, which is only about 250 yards to the middle of the green. That is, if you're gutsy enough to try it!

Since I'm not long off the tee, most of the time I'd be a chicken and hit an iron off the tee. Your yardage to the green is very fair.
