Update to my backyard green/bunker/teebox


Recommended Posts

Glad this got bumped, more people need to see this. In fact it needs a forum front paging like the 11 year old's ace the other day.

 

Haha. Ya hear that mods?... can I getta sticky? :)

 

I've actually been thinking for awhile now that it would be cool if we had a section here for putting greens and sim-room builds. Perhaps it's time to make a formal petition?

 

Anyway, what are the yellow dots for? Are they putting 'stations/tees' or are they landing spots for chips for individual holes/tee locations?

 

The former. I made a course for the Whitmore Tourney this past summer, and needed some tees that wouldn't get knocked around from the foot traffic.

 

Ended up just using a 2" hole saw and cutting out 18 discs from some 1/4" maple plywood I had left over from another project. The center hole in each disc from the guide bit made a good anchor point for a small nail with a large head. Wrote #'s 1-9 on each set with a sharpie and played around with positioning for a few days til I liked the routing, and then nailed them into place. Works really good and it's super easy to pull them up to make a new course. :)

Just went back to the beginning of this and read every reply again. I hit my daily max of likes to dish out, so I'll get to the others next time I check back in here.

 

Seeing Ben's post on page 5 where he said he'd be stopping by in the mornings to putt and was "looking forward to being a helping hand the rest of the way" almost made me lose it. Finding him the way I did and the aftermath of that was one of the hardest things I've ever gone through, and I still miss him terribly. Really wish I could've shared the finished product and the last 3 years of golf with him.

Oh and I just started up a thread in the feedback section suggesting a section for green/sim build threads, so if you have any thoughts either way you should drop by there and post up what you think.

Wow!! I remember when this thread started. I was absent from the board the last several years and just caught up.

 

Rich, you are an amazing human being. That is one epic story of perseverance, heartbreak, friendship, family, this story has it all.

 

I needed a change in perspective today, and this provided it and then some. I admire all of your work and skills. But admire you most as a great person.

 

Hope you are blessed beyond blessed going forward. The world needs more stories like this and people like you.

 

Thank you for sharing. And yes mods, please, please, please pin this thread!!

Welcome back!

I was thinking it needed some CGI and explosions... but maybe that's just me.

Sigh. What a huge bummer it is to see this thread after the photobucket TOS change. Page after page of black boxes. Welp, there's no way in hell I am paying them 400 bucks a year for 3rd party hosting, so it looks like it will be a monumental challenge to get this thread back to how it was. I am currently researching tips and tricks for going about this smoothly, but so far coming up pretty empty. If anybody has any suggestions I would be most grateful for any help.

 

So far the process looks like it will have to be:

 

1. Download all PB albums to my PC (already working on this).

2. Re-upload all pics to a new host (eyeing Amazon S3 at the moment).

3. Change all of the embed links in this thread to hyperlinks so I can figure out which picture goes where.

4. Replace each existing PB hyperlink with a new corresponding AS3 embed link.

5. ???????

6. Profit?

 

 

I dunno. Between this thread, all of the pond building forums posts, and all of my old Mazda forums posts, we're talking literally hundreds and hundreds of different posts spread all over the place and upwards of a thousand pictures. Fixing all of it just seems impossible. I'd like to start from the beginning here since so many people enjoyed this thread, and then if it ends up being not as bad as it seems then I'll move on to restoring stuff elsewhere.

 

Ugh. What a mess. Again, if anyone has any other suggestions I am all ears at this point. Thanks, photobucket. :/

Ok first page is now restored. Of course PB is being finicky about downloading entire albums, and with the way the editor works on here by displaying embedded images instead of showing the bare text it's actually a little easier to just do each image one at a time. Ouch. AS3 also has a kind of wonky interface so it's not super quick for that part either. Some of the more pic heavy pages are definitely going to take awhile. I'll chip away at it here over the next few days though and hopefully won't screw anything up too badly.

Moving along a lot faster now that I found the toggle switch in the editor on here for switching between the display modes.

 

Still have to download the pics from PB individually, but I can now upload an entire post's worth of pics at a time, and then manually edit in the new addy's by just changing the beginning part of the urls.

 

Makes it about 4x faster. Just finished up with page 8.

Pretty sure the thread is now fixed. Ended up being 556 pictures. I'm about to go through it in incognito mode to double check and make sure there aren't any broken links that aren't showing up for me, but if anybody sees any broken ones just let me know.

Man, that is one awful thing to have to deal with.
