My wish for a Hot Shots-littleBigPlanet Hybrid

With The Masters going on this week and my itch for golf coming around for the spring and summer, I decided to pop Hot Shots Golf into my ps3.  After playing the same courses for the 1000th time though, I came to the conclusions that 1)we need a new Hot Shots game for the PS3 (Sure, TW will be out soon, but I assume it'll have mostly the same courses as it has had in the past) and 2)that a game with the creative possibilities of LBP for courses and characters would be the greatest thing ever.  Yeah, I know that the more 3D aspect is harder than LBP's 2D structure, but I have a solution for this, and it involves going back to look at the NES game GOLF. 
 

Look at this screen.  Now imagine it with today's graphics.  This is a really simple way to make a totally user-created golf game.  For the course itself, it's easy to see how a person can shape the layout and insert custom created obstacles.  You'd also be able to alter the terrain to create humps bumps, hills, and valleys.  Obviously there would need to be something done to make the game itself look more appealing (I don't know, but the abundance of black probably isn't the way to go today), but  I think it would work and not be too hard.  Of course, I don't know about possible lawsuits when every moderately famous course is created for free in this game rather than as DLC in Tiger Woods though.
 
So that's it, let Clap Hanz (they make Hot Shots, right?) team up with Media Molecule (or just give the whole thing to MM) and lets see what they can come up with.
