  • TGC 2019 Practice Facilities

    Did you know that TGC 2019 has tons of practice facilities?

    Not just the practice facilities available from the main menu...

    When you right mouse click a course from the course list you will find a practice button at the top right. This feature will give you the option to practice on the course specific driving, chipping and putting ranges. On the same screen you can also Favorite the course.

    course details

    practice options

    range

    You can also turn any hole or ball position into a practice range just by hitting the "R" key on your keyboard.
    This will switch on "AUTO-REWIND" and you will be able to hit from the same position until you hit the "R" key again.

    Keep working on that swing!

    Say what? This always existed? Does the designer have to create it? How do I not know this?

        I learn something new every day. I would have loved to learn this about a year ago though. 😳

          What Tha faaaa? No one in the Forum knew. Thought I noticed that practice button before, but who'd want to have what I thought was a "practice round" lol

            So can you actually drop a ball on any hole on the course and practice? If so this would get me to upgrade from original TGC to TGc 2019 instead of buying refine for my Uneekor. Can somebody post some videos of what this looks like?

              No, you cannot drop anywhere or jump to holes (except by conceding holes leading up to it). These are practice facilities built into some courses.

              So how do you build practice facilities into a course? I just checked it. It seems if there isn't a practice facility it takes you to the generic one. I'd love to add them to my builds

              Dunno, I've never built a course. Someday. <sigh>

            Oh. Bummer. Thanks gung-ho. Still a cool feature though.

              Has anyone found a practice facility that is unique? Every one I tried was the generic one in the theme of the course.

                Chamber's Bay driving range appears to be a rendition of the actual range. I've played there and the range on the sim map resembles the range in real life.

                It is 100% the standard TGC range.

              Good to know, I had no idea and was hoping for a variety of ranges to play on.

              Let’s use this thread to post any cool/unique ranges found...

                What does the chipping facility look like? This is interesting... I always saw that "Practice" option before but didn't know it went to a course-customized driving range.

                  It would be interesting to know how to make the ranges, and if you could just create a range without a course. You could come up with some really cool looking ranges and targets. Would be fun to have island green targets at different yardages, etc.

                    You could do that by building one hole with those features and putting the software on auto-repeat shot. Check out mthunt range as an example

                    Subsequent “holes“ can also be used to build different scenarios, and again play each one on repeat. I believe there are some chip/putt ranges like this.

                    To move forward to a specific pre-built scenario, just concede the holes prior and arrive at the one you want.

                      mthunt range is the best one. (-: Auto rewind off tee. Chipping to right. Turn off auto rewind and holes 2-9 are a putting course.
