I think I'm done with Royal Liverpool. With the Walker Cup there this week and me sick of the sight of it I thought I'd get it out there. Some basic Photoshop skills and a crash course in 3DG has held me back so apologies if there are some sketchy areas. The course seems to play ok and its a bit different to most of the PG courses.
Obviously as a links course it would normally be played with stiff winds and firm ground. The bunkers are pretty harsh but it is pretty much the only defence for the course so be careful.
As always a huge thanks to NoPutt for endless hours of help and encouragement (and bollockings). Also Justin for his help along the way.

Hi Dave. Replace the beta course with this final version. Nobody reported any problems so hopefully the 3D grass version will be the final final.
When I thinned out the planting and replaced with 3DG the FPS improved significantly so hopefully this version will show better performance than the beta.

just shot a round on the new 3dg version and i must say

it is a beauty, really puts you in the mind of being there and the gameplay is top notch

thanks much for this great links course, and the work you put in on it.

 

also forgot to mention, thanks for the challenge tees for the challenge points MOP

as it is now on the list to use for the weekly PGLS skills tourney

 

thanks again

Hang fire as I’m almost done converting West Lancs to overlay and 3DG. The original looks a bit dated when I look back.

Played an 18 hole alt shot with hard, hard 14 stimp breezy and it was a great test.

 

This is an absolutely fantastic golf course (from both a designer and player standpoint).  Thank you!

I had the pleasure of playing this course tonight.  We set it at hard greens, hard fairways, 12 stimp and strong breeze.  Quite the test but enjoyed every minute of it.  The FPS with dynamic sky on was rock solid.  Love the contrast between the dried out fairways and the greens and trees.  All in, you did an amazing job recreating this one and it is now one of my favourites.  Looking forward to your update of West Lancashire which I was also impressed me.  Thanks for providing this course to the community.
