    It is always nice to play a new course. Even though we can only select holes from the standard courses available to us, mixing them up can create fun, and sometimes challenging courses.

    I am starting this thread so we can share customs course created in our respective clubs.

    I will start with 2 I created:

    1) EZ PZ OR NOT SO EASY: This is 18 holes, Par 72, created before PGA National came out. It consist primarily of holes with reachable greens, depending on wind and tee conditions. It can be set to be easy or challenging:

    2) A MIXED BAG. This course is 18 holes, par 72, consisting of alternating 3 and 5 pars with a few 4's thrown in to make both the front and back par 36. As low scoring as playing 3 and 5s may seem, trust me, this is not one of those courses if you use medium to heavy wind. A few holes may be prone to take your balls (a real WGT pleaser).

    I hope you enjoy these courses and look forward to trying some of yours.

    To bad you cant set the green speeds to be diff at every hole. Would be some interesting scores because people would forget to check green speeds, after all isnt it a custom course.

    I suggested something along these lines years ago. I was crucified for suggesting it.

    LOL

     

    Hopefully times have changed

    Maybe Nico can work his magic.­čĺ¬

    I often use mixtures by having e.g., 1sts and 10ths (Good Starts), Lucky 7’s, Crazy 8’s, or May the 4’s be with you.

    We also have a doglegs course, nasty when short tees are used, esp with high wind…..but exciting to drive some greens, too.

    I created 8 Custom Courses that I use in our Tournament rotation.

    1. Shortest Par 3's
    2. Shortest Par 4's
    3. Shortest Par 5's
    4. Shortest Par 72 Course
    5. Longest Par 3's
    6. Longest Par 4's
    7. Longest Par 5's
    8. Longest Par 72 Course

    For example, the Shortest Par 3 Custom Course plays the shortest 18 holes on WGT measured from the back tees. Bandon Dunes was excluded in this project.o

    Effort was made to make the yardage on the Front & Back 9's as equal as possible. Multiple holes from the same course were also split.

    Courses were updated when Torrey Pines and then PGA were added.

    Shortest Par 3's (3,013 Yards; 1507/1506)
