Tedious and very poor - doesn't do what it says on the tin

Summary: I bought this + the expansion pack with the intention of creating the course I used to play when I lived abroad and is part of the European PGA Tour. I had all the maps of the holes + yardages so I thought it would be easy. In fact it's not only hard, but the final result is very disappointing.
Summary: I've never reviewed a product before but I felt I needed to share my dissapointment with this game. The idea of designing your own course sounds fun, but after adding a few bunkers and planting some trees, the moment I took a look round the course to see how it was coming along I was extremely...
Summary: The search for a decent "create your own course and then play it" golf game continues. This is very disappointing. The play is jerky and cumbersome, and very difficult to get to grips with due to the delay from clicking the mouse to the resulting action happening on the screen.
Summary: When I first bought the game, I had a few problems with it. After one-to-one emails from the guys developing CPG, I was impressed at how quick it was sorted after I updated the drivers; and got "CustomUpdate". They have a great fan base.
Summary: It is a little unfair to compare this game with Tiger Woods. We should remember that the Tiger Woods game is built on an old golf game and is already on its 5th? 6th? outing as Tiger Woods. The impressive thing about CPGolf - is the support and continual improvement of the game.
Summary: This game looks good on paper but it just doesn't have the polish or any of the play refinements that other recent golf games do. The course designer is very nice, but once you actually start playing a round you get the feeling that the game is unfinished.
Summary: As a fan of other PC golf titles (not that there are many) I bought this one with little prior knowledge. I am glad I did. This is so different from any of its competitors since the focus here is on creating your own golf course. The tools that allow you to do this are very easy to pick up.
