any of the trees seem finished at a fine granularity
the rest is flatter making the whole seem composited
of parts cut from different paintings, some accurate, others quickly done.

since the trees form a band, the treatments are isolated.
you can get away with some dense and some rough but it requires more dance, more movement, more interplay. One thing to find is a pattern that bridges the gap, or a color that is both densely and loosely variated.

anyway it is quite a nice depiction of a favourite spot.

The trees are my favorite part. I bet a close up would show more detail and talent with the brush. the grass is a little too neon, but could be photo/monitor. are you happy with it?
YOu seem to have been able to imitate dense woods where golf balls always go. nice work

your trees are quite nice...
can you try and bring those colors & textures into the grasses which would unify the painting & it would have more truth...:)

In my opinion, you need more layers of paint to produce more depth. At the moment it's lacking connectedness and solidity.
