Top Real Courses – April 2016

This edition of the Top Real Courses sees 7 new additions to the list, with Bethpage Black making the highest debut. I had hoped to debut a handful more new courses, but my own work on Oakmont has gotten in the way. You can still get a sneak peek at some of these upcoming courses by checking out the March and April editions of the Real Course Tour. Also don’t forget, along with the impending release of Oakmont, we will be seeing a very dedicated rendition of Oakland Hills South released as well.

    Hi there, Great work on these courses. The only reason I buy TGC is to play on these wonderful creations. I have a couple questions if possible. Is there an easy way to search for all the above courses in TGC2?

    Anybody know if you can play the conklin course on tgc2? I’m new to the game, and I’m playing conklin this weekend… thought it would be fun to try it out.
