1. Almost every hole is a one-way track. It'll get kinda boring. Add more things like 3,4 on the 8th hole (Cairns Coral Cart)

But, if you make the map more interesting by taking away the linear nature, this'll add more places that can't be bombarded. The whole bombarded thing doesn't make much sense to me. Try to figure out something else that the tees can do. Maybe they can hit the fairway anywhere up to 300 yards or whatever a realistic yardage should be for a tee shot.

1. The holes are boring for the most part. The bend on the fourth hole should be sharper so that it matters. Right now players can just shoot straight for the flag. Make them have to lay up straight so that curve is utilized.
edbeard wrote:2. similar to the first point, make bunkers and water hazards etc.. part of the course. put them in places players will be hitting their balls. Where the tee shot will hit. Right around the green.
edbeard wrote:3. Overall, you just have to make the whole course more interesting. Make it something a golfer will find challenging and interesting. I'm no golfer but I'm sure there's plenty on here. Find someone to help design your holes.
edbeard wrote:4. shouldn't there be a path from the 9th hole to the clubhouse? make the connections from greens to the next hole's tees more visible. A few are hardly noticeable.
edbeard wrote:5. maybe put some houses on the course. It'll be a nice change from the green which dominate the map.
6. try putting some thick brush on the map. it'll add some yellow/brown to the map.

Some cart paths would be nice as well.
Just a thought.
edbeard wrote:paths are a good idea.
make the course itself look like a real course and one that golfers would say, "hey I want to play on that course". once that happens, everything else will follow.
possibly add some more depth and height to some of the holes. I'm not a golfer, but I don't think a totally flat course would be as challenging or fun as one with uphill and downhill. It'd only show slightly from this view but it'd still show in some spots.
I thought of a way to do the special attack from the tees graphically. Have a marker on each hole that lists 300 yards or something. Anything territory up to and including this point can be attacked from the tee.
Maybe make your legend into a scorecard?

PM me if you want me to remove the poll so you can start over.
