@snellgolf    Have you considered offering personalization options? 
It's been tried and there is at least one golf course in existence in Australia, but I believe that only the tee boxes and greens are synthetic turf.   http://www.abc.net.au/local/stories/2014/07/28/4055071.htm   There are some factors to consider with a completely synthetic course.  It will wear unevenly (where the majority of shots are taken) and replacing worn areas will not be easy.  The synthetic turf would be considered to be hazardous waste when it is...
1. overswing 2. using big muscles to control the club instead of swinging freely
I would think EA Sports is well enough established that they no longer need a front man for their golf game.  I'm pretty sure they could have saved their money and just called it "PGA Tour 2015"
Over the years, as I make improvements to my swing, I need less and less warm-up before teeing off.  Years ago I used to spend 30 minutes stretching and swinging clubs like a madman in order to get loose enough to even make contact with the ball on my first swing.  As my swing has improved, it also has become simplified and requires far less athleticism.  These days I spend about 10 minutes on the putting green to get a feel for the speed for the day, take maybe six swings...
Have you checked to see if they have your home course in their database?  It's hard to believe there are many they don't have.  You can just ask them to add it and they will add it very quickly.
My 4-iron is far too useful for escaping from jail (trees) and slicing/hooking a punch under the branches.  I just don't find that I can pull it off as well with a hybrid.
74 (par 71/course rating 69.8/slope 120) I just blew away my lifetime best of 79 by 5 strokes. While my putting was lights out (28 putts), it really came down to course management and a better understanding of my own abilities. 
I just had the round of my life and blew my previous best away by 5 strokes--I have to give credit where it is due.  Thank you @iacas and @mvmac for this book!  It took reading it a couple of times (and maybe a month of weather-induced hiatus) for me to come to grips with the message, but I now have a completely different understanding of how to manage the course with my own abilities/limitations.
I'd bet that my very first round (at the age of 11) was probably around 140-150 and I've shot 79 a couple of times recently. But my best and worst round were when I played St Andrews Old Course a couple of years ago.  I've never enjoyed playing golf as much as I did that day but I couldn't have played worse (shot 100).
