Course Architect Comments
In the beginning of my computer golf life, there weren't any Tiger Woods games yet.
My first PC golf game was called PGA Championship Golf 2000 and I fell in love with it.
Thanks to the designing pioneers like Steven Opfer, Ken McHale, Brian Slivernail and Jim Dickson, I enjoyed playing the courses they made.
One of them was this course, Mecklenburg Greens.
After Mr. McHale offered the original architect file for this course to the general public, I tucked it away on a disc until just recently. It was then that I decided to try and convert the course to Tiger Woods 08.

For you that have done a conversion, you know it is no easy task. There was a lot of smoothing and optimizing to do to get the finished product to its current state.
I did not mess with the water hazards too much. Just tried to smooth around some of the edges.
I tried to keep the original course textures as close as possible by creating new ones for TW08.
As far as PIN positions, I eliminated quite a few of the original PIN positions and reduced the number of them on quite a few holes.

All the holes are the original Ken McHale design. Because of a mistake on my part, I had to re-route some of the back nine holes.
For an old course, this is long. There is one PAR 5 that is over 700 yards!
That should be a challenge for even the longest hitter to get an eagle on.
I have enjoyed re-working this course and find myself playing it quite often.
I think everyone will enjoy this old McHale classic as much as I have and do.
