Albany G.C.; Nassau, The Bahamas

Designer: Justin Smedley

Course Description:

Albany is an Ernie Els designed course built in Nassau, home of Tiger Woods' "Hero World Challenge" PGA Tournament. The course as it's presented in game is a semi-RCR/"based on", but not completely true to real life in a number of ways. Most notably, without any information on green sculpting aside from a few holes I saw while watching the past couple of years Hero event, I'd estimate 85-90% of sculpting is entirely fictional (i.e., created by me). I tried as best as I could manage to keep some of the hallmark traits that I took note of during the past couple of years broadcasts - obvious sandy surroundings, many raised greens, etc. - but I certainly wouldn't try to pass it off as a clear, 100% representation of the actual course. What is accurate to the real course are hole yardages (from tips, which worked out quite well on a number of holes), layouts, routing, etc. - basically everything you can see from Google Earth.
