    amateur4sure:

    Guys this has probably been covered more than once in the Forums but I can`t find anything on it.........

    Anybody out there know the actually Monetary cost that WGT have to pay to create a new golf course?  

    I know there is a hell of a lot that goes into it from Day 1 in setting up the cameras and drones but is there a specific Price to create a brand new course from A - Z ?

    Just wondering,

    Cheers in advance

    Chris

    It is very difficult to get the permissions , the rights , the photographs , the preparations , and the money to offer full courses .

      That's what I'm saying as well .

      I couldn't find it either . Probably over 6 digits in the end from what I remember . A lot of money . But look at the results . Pretty amazing . 

      Think what a new program with course generators would do . There really are plenty of famous professional courses here .

      But add 10 courses generated by our suggestions . Would keep us busy for another 2 decades .

    Very interesting video!

    Now that the drones are available, it's going to be even more cost-effective and hopefully they're going to take a whole lot more photos of golf course in various angles next time they go out for shooting.

    Agreed Simon.

    Btw .... Is WGT based in California. If so, there is nothing I’d rather see more in terms of a new golf course the. superb Harding Park course that hosted the PGA over the last few days. What a treat that would be.

    When I joined in 2009 I think it was one of the 2 mods that said it was something like $250000 and I'm sure that that price raised dramatically in the 11 years that I have been on here so it could be as high as a million dollars a course. That is of course taking into account any licensing agreement fees.
