      *Warning* Stupidly fast greens that react like nothing like the normal.

      I gave up after 6 holes - not fun.

        I wonder if there is something wrong with the tournament entry. The course itself should be fine. I also thought when playing on the sim the firmness and speed are always overwritten? I know this was a last min course change to be on the actual course the tournament use to be played on. It's a very tough course but nothing has been done on purpose to trick up anything whatsoever...

        I will play my rounds soon and see if they play like they did when I was designing it. It actually should play very much like Sawgrass, tight fairways and small greens.

        Hey - I should add - not complaining or having a go at anyone - just wasn't enjoying it.do love every thing that folks do here.

        I wasn't using driver to keep the noise down (late night play with young ones) but even using 3 wood and getting it out their at 240/250 it felt looonnnggg

        couple of chips I played seemed to release out like crazy, then I would face a DOWNHILL put coming back ! Lol

          none taken. I just want to make sure it's playing as it should. Yes it's a hard track, played in real life a few times myself in tournament conditions! Prob one reason it wasn't well attended by the top pros, right after The Players, as it's two realy tough tracks back to back...tight fairways and small greens.

          If you can keep it in the fairways and on the right sections of the small greens you can score...but that is asking alot! lol.

          I might mention the tour plays this as 7,200+ and #3 is a 500+ yard par 4! Geez....lol.

        For the green speed make sure you have TGC 3.5 installed. This version overrides the green speeds during the tournaments.

          Thanks! Remind me on how to check my version and where the latest downloads are? I'm sure I have latest version.

          Does anyone else have issues when loading TGC and getting "offline connection" error? I need to restart the game a couple times to get it online. Very odd and driving me nuts. The network connection on the PC is good and firewall off - very odd that it happens every time and a game restart fixes it......

          is this for everyone? like skytrak users should have 3.5 TGC installed as well? or is this specific to protee?

        Played a regular round yesterday and didn't find anything weird about the greens being too fast. I do have the latest TGC version installed. Hit a few GIR and didn't have any problems with the ball rolling off the back of the green like older versions of TGC.

          Just played a tournament round and the greens seemed normal to me. My putts missed the hole at the same speed they do every week.

            Lucky ones like this drops the score real quick. (209yds slightly uphill) Man is this course long at par 70. Chip/pitch shots saved at least 6 strokes easily.

              Nice shot wbond! -3 with 5 GIR is incredible...short game must have been on fire as well

              Yep, pretty much all short game, easily could have been a lot worse. Not to adept at hitting greens, short game always gets a workout.

            3 chip-ins for par in the second round and hit my wedges well. I only had 20 putts total in the second round.

                I turned the water setting to 0. Doesn't look as good, but I figured Im not playing for the waterfront view. It's increased mine from 55 FPS to around 70. I was able to bump up the tree setting. Constantly at 59-62 now.

              Wow. Long Track for me. Driver-3 wood every hole is no fun.

                  Yeah I'm confused here...is there a difference between TGC 3.5 and the SDK version that you can see under the Skytrak settings/config file?

                  For instance TGC itself says I have 3.0.0
                  Under the Skytrak settings file I have SDK Version 3.0.2 (which was the one that allowed you to edit the green stimp, firmness, etc)

                  Which one is supposed to be updated? Or both? And where/how do we do those updates?

                This is what I got from Support.

                3.0.2 is a server patch. The TGC dashboard will not update. This is still 3.0.0.
                TGC dashboard is for non-skytrak systems, which works like your TGC for SkyTrak interface which also has it's own version.

                The version that matters to SkyTrak users is shown in the SkyTrak settings file.

                3.5 is something different, this will update the game, the server and the TGC dashboard.

                These updates and patches are not required updates.
