Here is a quick grading lesson for those interested...I'm sure they'll be questions...
Practice area concept... I could also use a lesson on grading.
Some more tweaking with routing and moving some elevation lines, though not much. Added some bunkers and need to learn how to incorporate elevation lines to make it more understandable. Enjoying seeing what works and doesn't. Please feel free to critic, modify what I have done, anything. Never offended if someone wants to take what I have done and improve it.
Here are my two routings. I will admit they are still in rough draft form. I think with Paint.net I am able to recontour lines, but I will need some pratice to accomplish that task. Not sure I have a preference and I have about 5 other potential routings, but not sure 9 holes worth. I would have to convert to a practice area versus 9 holes, which I still may do. Let me know how successful/unsuccessful you interpret my routings. Interested in criticism and feedback, and no offense will be taken. I realize with posting these I need to make the lines a little darker and more vivid to be able to more easily see the routings.
As an artist versus designer/architect I have not had to prepare a "grading study." I have looked online and at this point it appears I need to alter the elevation lines to show my design, but before I submit anything, just wanted to be sure. I have two routings I am trying to choose between for 9 holes, but before I attempted to move elevation lines, just wanted to make sure I was doing it right. Any guidance is appreciated. I am using Paint.net and Inspire Pro on my Ipad to accomplish my work at this point. Thank you.
