Can't thank Kent enough or or for that matter give enough stars.
The detail is amazing and Kent made sure every part of the course looked and played as it does in real life.
The process was very simple (for us not so sure for Kent) where Kent produced the first draft and allowed us to play then asked for comments and change requests where were them implemented in the second draft. This process was repeated with no detail too small being overlooked.
Thanks again and I am sure we will get another course requested soon.
Gareth, enjoyed working with you to ensure the course is exactly the way you expected it to be!
I am absolutely thrilled with my home course that the Lidar King built.i would recommend to anyone wanting their course to play TCG2019. Very easy and fun to work with,Very responsive, All the slopes and greens are perfect. Lidar is a great technology when it comes to geological contour of land . Thank you Lidar King.
My pleasure Augustino. Enjoy it year round now!
The king is great and willing to work with you as long as it takes. I moved and was never able to get him notes on the beta for almost 8 months but he had no problem picking up where we left off and finishing. Will be doing more.
The course looks and plays great Luke! Enjoy it man.
Kent was great to work with. After creating my local course in CT myself, I asked Kent to create my favorite course where we vacation knowing just how much work goes into doing it right. Kent delivered a wonderful course and worked with me throughout the whole process.
Really enjoyed working with you Phil! Glad you are enjoying the course.
When I read about Kent, The Lidar King, on the web, I doubted how he could replicate a course in a remote area in the mountains between Spain and France, in the beautiful valley of La Cerdanya. He asked for the location and told me the lidar data was available for the course. Et voila, in the scheduled time he sent me the first beta, that was already impressive.
From then on everything went nice and easy, due to the level of responsiveness and professionalism of Kent. Needed changes were mostly cosmetics and the end product exceeded my expectations.
Thanks Kent for a great work !!
Juan, it was a pleasure working with you to get this beautiful Spain course built and designed to your satisfaction! Enjoy it year round.
All I can say is WOW! Playing courses available TGC 2019 is great but I really wanted to play my home courses as well. I reached out to The Lidar King (Kent Shaffer) to build my courses. All I can say is, if you're not looking to him to build your courses, you need to be. His process is to build your course and then do live reviews to make any revisions. His first pass was fantastic and I didn't need many changes. He is extremely responsive and customer-focused. I promise you that you will be thrilled with the work he does.
Enjoyed working with you Denis! Working on that second course now 🙂
He did a fantastic job on it, I was able to personalize it just the way it is in real life!!
Ben, it is a beautiful course man. Enjoy it year round! 🙂
We were so thankful for Kent's ability to faithfully recreate our local golf course. The course closed a few years ago and is slowly fading away back to nature, however, Kent was able to bring it back to life! He was great to work with! Five Stars!!!
Thanks, Ben! I am glad I could revive your course and provide you the opportunity to play it again and for the rest of your life.
Kent does a phenomenal job from start to finish to insure you are getting the course you want. I can't imagine an easier more personalized experience for the value. Thanks Kent! We look forward to playing our home course all winter.
Robin, it was a pleasure man. I will be thinking about you and your brother playing the course year-round now!
Kent is the best in the game. He worked with me every step of the way to nail down every detail of my home course for a beautiful finished product that I will enjoy playing for years to come. I could not be more pleased with the whole experience!
It was great working with you, Cooper. Good luck with you and the college golf career!
There is no amount of praise to adequately compensate Kent for the magnificent work he does. He turned around a beta of the course and from there, a few Zoom meetings and we had a finished course. Kent is courteous, fast and enjoyable to work with. Considering the product you receive at the end - his value is a steal. I can't wait to work again with him!
Enjoyed working with you, Mark! Now that we published that final version, I will be thinking about you with the snow on the ground and you are playing your course year round now!
Kent was amazing to work with. We met on Zoom multiple times to nail down every detail of the course. He was patient and flexible and went above and beyond to make sure I was satisfied with the finished product. HIghly recommend!
Grant, enjoyed working with you to get the course spot on! Enjoy it in the upcoming winter months 🙂
Working with Kent on my course was an excellent experience. He took the time to ensure that every slope, green, hazard and even trees are exactly the way they should be. My course plays exactly as it does in real life. I highly recommend working with him for any PGA 2k21 course design!
Enjoyed working with you Jeremy. Beautiful course you have there!
Kent has just completed my local course Loudoun Gowf Club in Scotland. What an amazing job. His attention to detail is second to none. Nothing was a problem from start to finish. Our members cant believe how close to the real thing the course is. I would highly recommend The Lidar King to create your course for TGC 2019.
Thanks for all your hard work Kent top job!
Enjoyed the building of your course Ali. Enjoy it as the winter rolls in and you can still play in the warmth of your garage 🙂
First class! - Kent did an awesome job taking a northern Wisconsin wooded course and turning it into a SIM course which reflects the natural feel of the course. The look and play of the SIM version is spot on. Kent's attention to detail and his top notch professionalism and responsiveness is second to none. If you are looking to have your course created, there is no second option, The Lidar King is a must.
Jon, thanks for the kudos! Enjoyed working your awesome course and look forward to designing the next one!
Sultan's Run in Jasper, IN, is a wild course with tons of elevation changes, thousands of trees, creeks everywhere and several iconic holes. I was skeptical that Kent could replicate it, but I'm stunned and delighted with how it turned out. Watching it evolve from the first beta to what's now posted was astonishing and exciting. Kent was absolutely great to work with! So patient and accommodating. It literally couldn't have been a better experience! Thanks, Kent!
It was great working with you Michael. It is a gorgeous course and enjoyed replicating it to your satisfaction! 🙂
Customer service is excellent and the course turned out great!
Enjoyed working on your gorgeous course Paris! May you and your father enjoy the course as much as you do playing it live.
My course was delivered ahead of schedule and exceeded all my expectations. The play and details are all top notch. Plus Kent is the most responsive consultant I've ever worked with. Five stars for sure.
It was a pleasure Steve. Hopefully I will build another in the coming months!
The Lidar King recreated my home course. It wasn't easy due to all of the marsh and wetlands in my course but through 3 iterations he made it happen. Kent was ultra responsive and the course is so fun to play now for my son and I.
Thank you so much!
It is a shame that HB filters out "Melbourne" for you your course Lenny! Enjoyed building the course and working with you. Looking forward to the next design!
If you want to build your home course I highly recommend The Lidar King. Its amazing how real it is. All the slopes and undulations are spot on. The process was easy. You get beta version 1, then 2 and you keep going and make changes such as getting the tee box exactly where you want it or changing the size of a tree and you are done.
Thanks Kent, money well spent.
Matt, it was a pleasure working with you on this gorgeous course! Let me know when you want that second one done!
I was always confused why, of the thousands of courses available to play on TGC 2019 and now 2K21, no one had ever designed one of the most beautiful courses I've ever played in real life. Enter Kent Shaffer the Lidar King to design Edgewood at Lake Tahoe for me. The process was seamless and Kent was very accommodating in getting the course exactly the way I wanted it. The end result was a beautiful course I can now play whenever I want, instead of just once a year for real!!! I highly recommend anyone willing to pay for the privilege to play their favorite course in the game, to invest in Kent to get it done for you. It's worth every penny!!!!!
David, it was pleasure working with you on such a gorgeous course man. Let me know when you have another in mind! :)And yes I did port it over to 2K21. Go play it all of you on the PC or Consoles.
Wow! Kent created my home course and it plays exactly the same on my simulator as in real life . Kent is smart and very good at what he does he’s a great guy fun to work with so much so I will be doing another course ! If you are thinking about doing this then yes Kent is your man for sure
Anthony, enjoyed working with you man. Looking forward to the next course design zoom session! 🙂
Kent did a fabulous job with this course. It was the home course for my college golf team, and I have a lot of great memories on the course. I asked Kent to do a re-creation, and it turned out perfectly. The course is a Ted Robinson design, and there are several trees that are critical to the strategy of the course, and Kent did a great job of positioning them just right to re-create the experience. The overall experience of working with Kent was also great - he is very responsive, and we went through a few (minor) revisions before publishing the course. Thank you Kent!
Really enjoyed building and designing the course Dave!
Kent designed our second course at Treasure Lake Resort and again did a wonderful job. Can’t thank him enough for the work he puts into them. I did get to show screen shots of the Silver course that Kent designed to the guy who help build both courses back in the late 60’s early 70’s (Bill Adams). He was truly amazed by it. He was the original greens keeper and was Cousin of Arnold Palmer and worked under Arnold back in the day at Latrobe Country Club. He retired and his son has taken over. Unfortunately Bill passed away on Wednesday Aug. 5th 2020 I never got to show him the Gold course. I’m sure he would have loved it as well.
Mark, it was a pleasure working with you and building the two courses for all to enjoy. Maybe I will get up to your area sometime and play a round with you!
Thanks Kent!!! for bringing back a closed course.. Empire Lakes was my home course and a Arnold Palmer design and the Nationwide tour (korn ferry) played there and it closed a few years ago but lucky for me there was still Lidar and Kent to bring it back from the dead. Thanks!!
My pleasure Mike! Love bringing back these courses from the grave yard.
100% would recommend The Lidar King - Kent for building your favorite course!! He built our home course and very happy how it turned out. Kent was very good about providing updates with feedback we provided. Well worth the money.
Kent created an excellent course using LIDAR. The attention to detail and communication was top notch. He made tweaks to the course to make sure every detail was spot on. Well worth the investment!!
Kent was beyond amazing to work with. The course I had him design was in the middle of significant improvements and changes so Kent had to make revision after revision based on pics and feedback to get it To reflect reality. He was super patient and responsive and the quality of the final product is top notch. He did all this for a more than fair price. I am going to have years of enjoyment playing my home course thanks to Kent. Thank you Kent!!!
Kent did a fantastic job creating my home course Redcliffe GC. He was very respnsive to all of my requests and believe me there was a lot, I would definitely recommend him. I am completely satisfied, and will be recommending him to everyone.
Long live the King
Very happy with Kent's work. Very responsive and easy to work with. Highly recommended and would definitely work with him on more courses in the future.
Kent did a great job creating my home course. He was very respnsive to all of my requests. I would definitely recommend him. I am completely satisfied.
KENT DID A FANTASTIC JOB ON MY HOME COURSE. I COULD NOT BE MORE PLEASED. EVERY LITTLE TWEEK I REQUESTED HE TOOK CARE OF QUICKLY & SENT ME A BETA VERSION TO CHECK OUT. ALMOST LOOKING FORWARD TO WINTER!
Kent was brilliant to work with and carried out all the tweaks I needed till I was happy with the product couldn’t recommend him enough ,my fellow members of the club can’t believe how realistic it is it looks amazing well happy with it worth every penny thanks again 👍
Kent IS the King of Lidar! I’m extremely thrilled with how my course turned out and especially grateful for how patient Kent was with all my edits and re-edits and re-edits. I was very meticulous with how accurate my course needed to be and Kent went above and beyond to make sure I was happy with the final product. Couldn’t be more pleased and well worth the his fee. A+++
Had a great time working with Kent designing my home course! Kent provides Betas along the way for you to play and note changes. Continue the process until your course is complete. Kent was responsive and accommodating to all requests. Would hire him again no question!
Kent did a Awesome job on my course!! He should have charged me more cause I made a lot of additions to his build. My course took up a lot acreage and he had to make adjustments to get things in I wanted but did an amazing job. Had him make a ton of bunker changes cause they redid our bunkers on the course recently. He even added some wildlife I ask for at the end. I am having him build our other course at the resort as well. I'm sure it will be just as great as the first!
Worth twice the price. Kent replicated this 2020 #6 Missouri course. Everything I asked for and he made it real. Built the course and allowed us to play a beta version, request changes or tweaks, repeat until it was perfect. I am already planning my next course
Kent aka The Lidar King. is undoubtedly a King of his profession. Kent has had to endure my need for near perfection and has created me a top copy of my own course for TGC19. I can’t thank him or recommend him enough. Use him with confidence.
Excellent and very nice work done by the king to create a near perfect rendition of my hometown course on TGC2019. The details that he puts into his course designs is near perfection, exact placement of hills, traps, trees, houses , bushes etc... and responds promptly to requests to modify even the most minor detail. he also made a quicker 3 hole version of the course so my son can play on it. I will definitely be hiring him again to design more of our local courses.Thanks again for the superb work.
Course Name: Palmer Hills Bettendorf
This is 4th course Kent created for me. He does a fantastic job and highly recommend him. He is easy to work with and very responsive throughout the process. Each course he’s created for me turned out amazing. The courses use lidar data and look identical to real course I play. He adds a lot of detail and even added tall grasses where I requested. I’m getting one more local course designed by him. Definitely contact Kent if you want one of your local courses designed in TGC.
Blown away by Kent’s attention to detail when building my home course. I will 100000% hire him again for future courses. He was able to turnaround a Beta in under a week, and was prompt and detailed with all requests and changes. Cheers !
Beyond impressed with the work that Kent did for my home course. The accuracy to detail and craftsmanship that he puts into his course designs blew me away. Turnaround time was excellent as well. Would recommend this to anyone. You can't beat the value here.
After realising it was not that easy to re-create my home course I was glad I learned about Kent’s services. The result is just spectacular. He’s very fast in delivering the updates during the course creation. Save yourself loads of time & hassle and have Kent take care of your course creation.
Kent did a great job! He sent me the original review, listened to my points where the course had to be improved, was courteous and constantly kept contact with me during the design process. I will definitely be hiring him again to design more courses. His pricing was more than fair and his attention to detail was superb!
Kent is fantastic. Had him make my tree and house lined local course. It is FANTASTIC! Kent is easy to work with and had the Beta ready in a week. With the amount of work he put in the price is well worth it. HIGHLY recommend.
Kent is fantastic to work with. Has a fast turnaround, does great work, and is a wealth of knowledge on course creation. He is absolutely my go to for this and future course work!
5 Stars! Kent is creating awesome lidar courses for TGC. It’s the 2nd course I had him create. Called Fyre Lake Golf National. The detail he creates is truly unbelievable! If you want a home course created and play it on your simulator then definitely have him create one for you. He does lidar so the course is exactly mapped out to your real course! Definitely recommend him! - Mike
Second course I have had done by the King. Even better than the first. There are 8 guys from our club playing it tonight! If you have a course that you play and love, I highly recommend you getting the LidarKing to reproduce it. You won't regret it. A small price to pay for all the rounds you will play on it. Your friends and fellow club members will be amazed at how it feels like you are on the real course.
Highly recommended! The course came out just as I remembered it and I have had a joy playing it. Extremely pleased with my purchase.
I am glad that I could bring back this closed course back to life!
New to TGC 2019, I was thrilled to find courses local to my area, along with a few I've had the chance to play. The course replications were excellent. After some research, I found Kent was the designer. I submitted a request for my home course and Kent could not have been more customer-centric. His attention to detail is outstanding. The course design is pure replication and just an incredible experience to play. Kent's attention to nuance, contour, placement are amazing. Highly recommend Kent's talent and services to create your favorite home course.
