          Can a course created from a PC running the steam version of tgc be played on the sim version of tgc?

            Yes. 2 ways. Transfer the course file to the TGC sim PC or publish it to the steam version and wait for the next course sync.

              Thanks! So I assume that there is a "courses" folder in TGC directory that is easily identified?

            Does anybody know of good videos about recreating an existing course ? With the help of google earth ? I started to try it on my own a long time ago but i just can't get it right. Was hoping i find a video with some good advice .

              You should google HB Studios Forums and look up the Greg Norman designer forum. There is a ton of info on how people do it.

                Protee - I want to build a course for my 5 and 7 year olds. I've reviewed several of the videos in this thread. Would you say this is the definitive guide to course building or is there more formal instruction material?

                  Google on TGC course design and you will find hundreds of videos and loads of instructions.

                FYI, the above videos are all you need. Watch them all.

                  The videos are awesome but using a keyboard and mouse, I can't figure out how and what yo use when you are creating and editing a course. Maybe explain a little how and what keys do what? Any info would help me out.. thanks

                    Goggle HB forums and look up Greg Norman Course Designer. Keyboard shortcuts are there.

                      I have had TGC on my PS4 for ages. Recently with purchasing SkyTrak I've also bought for my PC to create courses for sim play.

                      I want to replicate my home course for use in sim.

                      My question is, if I start it now on TGC, then TGC2 comes out will I be able to transfer it to TGC2 unpublished to finish it?

                      Was playing a course yesterday and a wolf showed up behind the green. How is that done?
