    I like Wolf Creek, I'd love to see the full Cabo course or Sawgrass.  Who wouldn't want to take a crack at the island green?  Maybe Kaapalua?  The only course I'm not fond of is Royal St George but I agree with the above comment.  Don't remove courses, add them.

    WGT did not make Cabo or Whistler. Those 2 courses were made and owned by TruGolf and were only made for flash, When flash ended WGT  for what ever reason removed them, Maybe Nico or Champion can tell us why.

    I believe Nico mentioned one time that the reason Cabo & Whistler were not carried forward into the PCEA from flash was because the quality of the scans/images were not good enough.

    Not sure how much of that is truly why but I would suspect (and this is only my opinion) that $$ costs may have played a part too.WGT and TruGolf had an agreement to use Cabo & Whistler in the Flash version of the game. MY guess is that WGT would have needed to come to a new agreement to use it in the PCEA version. Similarly those two courses were never included in the Mobile versions as I suspect for the same reasons.

    I'd personally love to see the great Aussie course Royal Melbourne here,  what a thrill was playing it in an amateur event,  looking at the photos in the clubhouse, one of the best sandbelt courses in the world and walking the same fairways as the greats of the game,  truly inspirational

    There is one hole from each course in the Best of Par 5's course that I have seen.  So they clearly still have access to those courses and they do work on the new platform.

    For us old timers, I recall PGA 486 had Avenal, Harbor Town, and Sawgrass.  I would really like to see if WGT could acquire those rights from EA Sports and put the full 18 on the game.

    WGT stands out from other golf games because it uses HD photos for it's courses, not computer graphics (except for things like avatar, clubs, balls, flags... i.e. non-course items).  If you want courses made using computer graphics... go find a different golf game.

    I don't think anyone is clamoring for computer graphics courses, just NEW courses.  Most folks don't care about the details on how it's done, they just want it done. 

    It's been over a year since PGA National.  It's time.

    I believe that sometime in the past 6 or 8 months or so, WGT stated (probably Nico) that there would be no new courses in the 2023 calendar year.

    Still can't believe that we are playing VERY OLD Best of Famous & Hardest courses when so many new courses have come out since these were created. Could update them nicely in probably 20 minutes time with a simple course builder but then they can only be played in club tournaments.

    Seems like very little to no effort is being put into this game lately.
