Have another option for location:

Link to Google Map of Mt Hutt location

 

Much more open space, less crowded, land more affordable. Views of the Rakaia river to one side (world class trout fishing), and Mt Hutt on the other side (epic skiing in winter).

 

Thoughts? By the ocean, or in the foothills?

I would be so down if there was some way to make this come alive! We even scouted out a couple of likely pieces of vacant coastal land in New Zealand!

Just doodling at work while waiting for automation to do it's thing. I think 9 at 630 yards should finish a beast hard uphill cut over the lake and a big false front.  

This idea seriously started with me being an ass to Brad, he texted me whining how none of his New Zealand courses had maps on the cards and wondered how hard it would be to map from Google.   I lit

Hey Brad, I like it! I like courses with a lot of elevation change. Makes for some great tee shots. We can see what everyone else likes best though. Still need the terrain to start with. I'll get it somehow.

And I would like a 47" flat screen please. It does not have to be large though maybe a matching couch would be nice for the guys to drop down after a round. I expect to be back playin by then so we can have a nice party

Surprised you didn't run any holes along the water given the prime coastline opportunities

 

5, 6, 7, & 11 get pretty darned close to the water. But I will reroute 7 for you.

Until you actually get into this you do not realize how difficult and fun at the same time this can be. You want to use the terrain and you want to make it fun to play but at the same time you have to make it easy to flow. You do not want to double back to tee boxes.

 

Since I am unable to golf this weekend I have something to play with while watching the Open.

I thought about that, and making islands for greens but this version simply uses available lines through or over the trees.

Well, see, what we don't want is to end up with a whale getting a golf ball stuck in its blowhole. Don't think George Costanza would be readily available in NZ to rescue it! Ha!

I'm hoping to get a good start on this this weekend. Once I get the terrain to start with, I can turn out some stuff to look at for everyone's approval.

 

So are we sticking to the coast side cliff location? Be darned with the extra cost?

With winter coming I think it may be time to revive our little project.

Sounds like a plan!
