Really nice rendition of St. Andrews. Looks good and plays good. Very good planting and greens were great. Love those monster greens. Plays a bit too easy in normal conditions - shot 63. St Andrews (I think)needs to be played in gusty and windy conditions with heavy rough - make it tough to get a idea of what it really must plays like. Thank you for a wonderful creation.

in answer to brucman, there is no wall beside the 14th Championship Tee, it begins to the left side the 14th Medal Tee which is 45yards further forward than the "Tiger" tee

I have to admit I have never given AI players a thought when designing courses. The green texture was used in the hotel grounds purely for cosmetic purposes. If anyone would like I can easily fix it and send them a copy. If enough people want one, I can release another version.

Tried it again and the ai doesn't have a clue on the 17th. I feel your pain (having playtested my own courses). It kills it for those who play with ai players (like me). Otherwise I find it to be a truly great rendition of this, the mother of all courses.

Great course! Play had that real Open feel. One thing... The 17th hole has an area in the hotel grounds behind the wall that is set as a green. Its a trap if your playing ai players. They can't figure it out. But other than that its great!

Neil, this rendition is a much truer reflection of this great course. you actually feel a art of it as you work your way around.
would be great to see you team up with the new golf course game group to produce more of your masterpieces m8.GREAT JOB MY FRIEND WORTH 5 STARS in a blink of an eye.

I enjoyed playing this course. I like it better then the orginal. This course seems to have more depth to it. It gives it more of a real course feel. Nice job Neil !!

Dave, why would you not download a stock course remake? I have yet to see a remake that didn't blow a stock course out of the water and put them to shame :) Many of the stock courses are just downright innaccurate...I know Neil killed TPC Boston and Firestone as well...cgx did excellent renditions of East Lake, Doral, and Cog Hill that are far superior to the stock, and if I may humbly say so, My Ocean course is way more accurate than ea's, especially since the course had an overhaul since ea made it and my course reflects the changes.
I'd love to see someone redo the national and k club...maybe I will tackle the national soon, who knows ;) I just need someone to get me a good dem (hint hint)
The custom designers have put ea to shame, you should try the custom versions of stock courses, they are way way better imho

I usually don't download remakes of stock courses, but considering this designer, I had to give it a try. I agree with previous comments, it rivals the original. Totally enjoyed my round here, great job Neil - 5 stars

Thanks all for comments. The original version I made of this course did include the tournament stands and crowds etc. I thought long and hard about whether to remove them, and I decided to go with just the course as it is for normal play. The wall to the right of the 14th is only one section of the walls which run down the right on the back 9. When you use so many sections of wall, they eventually stop showing up, as I found to my cost when making Muirfield. Regard your OOB shot at the hotel as a bonus as I certainly didn't mean to miss that. :)

Neil,
Wonderful rendition of the Old Course. Captures the visual atmosphere of the place without attempting to be comprehensive. I think minimalism works best with a game like this. I miss, however, the ambient sounds and the general auditory atmosphere. Game play is even more authentic with the excellent rendering of Hell Bunker on 14, the Principle's Nose on 16, and the Valley of Sin on 18. The presence of the sheds on 17 is a welcome improvement over the original 08 version from EA Sports, and thank you much for ending the out of bounds nonsense over the Road Hole. I hit a drive onto the Hotel grounds on 17 and was surprised to discover I wasn't out of bounds;That was the only unrealistic quirk I encountered. I wonder why you didn't include the wall beside the 14 th tee?

Overall, I would rate this version 4 and a half stars. Great job!!
