Loved it! Those Gleneagle libs are already getting alot of usage, and fittingly so. The textures looked wonderful together. Polslad has mastered the crowds, they look just like they do on television. Another definite keeper and I think with this one, we may have all of the Open Championship courses in the rotation.

Thank you David!!! :up:

I can't add much. Poppy and I played 18 on easy conditions but will have to go back with some serious wind and fast greens.
I love the color... colours... of this course, a beautiful blending of greens and browns. The rough is just that, sticky and tough to get out of. The bunkers with the weed lips are very tough also. Keep it on the fairway and greens or you'll pay a price for mishitting.
Excellent job, beautiful rendition, Polslad.

So, what's next? (You think we're going to let you rest... I don't think so!) :bg:

Looks great David.

I don't have a lot more to add than what everyone else has said. I really like the way the bunkers look and turned out on the course. The crowd also looks great. It really looks like it does on a TV coverage.

Thanks for the work on the course.

Six of us played a spirited front 9 last night. The game setter chickened out and set Normal greens, which tended to help scores.

I would call this course "Lush Links". You know it is links, but there are lots trees (not in play) and eye candy to affect the view. The large number of deep bunkers make you think about ball placement on every hole. Get a little sloppy, and you get a wake up call.

I made the mistake of getting into one of the bomb craters... er... bunkers next to the green on one of the holes. I tried to hit out and buried it in the wall. Ended up having to drop and carded a nifty double bogey :mad:

All in all, a very nice course. Everyone enjoyed the round. The tri-clicking assassins picked it apart and scored low medal at -8. The other scores ranged from -7 to -4. So you can score on it, but you need to stay in the shortgrass all the time.

I really want to see what happens when we play the course of dry or VD and gusty or strong. That should slow those guys down a bit.

Very nice course Pols. Keep em coming :up:

Hi David,

An excellent rendition which looked and played well.

Thanks for sharing this contribution and it helped that I found the course player friendly, as long as you stayed out of the bunkers. hehehe

Cheers

David! VERY NICE WORK. Do you know if Winston Churchill had a secret deal with Hermann Goering to have the German Luftwaffe bomb that area once instead of London during the Blitz? ;)
