the fun begins in:
Welcome to The Workshop - A forward-thinking, collaborative community focusing on visual communication of golf course design and artistry.
Collaborate with members on a single drawing. Each session has specific rules to follow, but beyond that, your imagination is free to dream.
Think tank environment to explore 'What If? Explain your outside-the-box ideas with plans and sketches. Put those brainstorming helmets on!
Day at the beach? Show us your shaping skills using nature's sandbox as your canvas. Grab a beer, shovel and have some fun in the sun!
Learn tips and tricks about The Workshop, golf course design and creating concept art using various tools.
Challenge yourself with real world design scenarios. Plan, sketch and share your solutions with The Workshop.
Re-imagine the great courses we all know, as if they were in an alternate universe. Be bold, be brave and show us your other worldly ideas.
Aspiring course designers finally have a home to spread their wings. Use crayon, chalk or any other medium to express your fresh ideas.
- CONTEMPLATION STATIONI take my young kids golfing whenever I can. When we go, we play more beginner friendly courses, and I play from the front tees with them (or where ever they tee off to keep it more social.) Rather than handicaps, I had an idea to make the game a fair match and more fun. I have to use a ball that is smooth on one half and normal dimples on the other. It will not fly nearly as far as a Pro V1 and will have a lower ball flight (much like my kids shots.) If I stay in the fairway, I can lift and place the ball however I want (dimples facing straight back) but if I am not in the fairway, I have to play the ball as it lies. Depending on how the ball comes to rest, I may be hitting a ball that will severely hook (dimples on left) or slice (dimples on right). It will force me to be creative and turn that boring muni into a completely different course. I envision other addendums to the rules. If I get up by two holes or more, I have to play the ball as it lies everywhere. And if I get up by 3 holes, my opponents get to lift & place my ball however they want, and I have to hit it. Basically, they get to try and sabotage me until the match gets closer. So who would be willing to give Mudball a try? And how would you make it better? Bart PairLike
