I took an alpine layout and pretty much flattened it out and then started creating my elevations. I had a pretty good idea of what I wanted for a finishing hole so I built 18 first as a 2 tiered fairway. Since I had a few courses under my belt I decided to take this one up a notch so I took my time sculpting and play testing the heck out of it from all 3 tee positions and all 4 pin positions; and while it says the greens are fast, they are closer to medium fast than really fast. Generous fairways (most of the time) & a generous amount of light rough (most of the time). Some nice fades & draws will be necessary from time to time to get in the best shape for your approach shots. Lots of elevation changes. A fair & medium difficult course. FYI the eagles are guarding their nests and eagle pass on no 1 tee. I hope you enjoy it! And TY to all you designers that contribute your time and hard work to make it easier for up and coming designers to get thru the learning curve.
