Will do. I always appreciate completely honest feedback, it's almost impossible to get better without other peoples critical eyes being applied. I suggest all designers take this approach :)

I normally play the tour the night I publish it but I didn't get a chance this week and haven't since. Will get out there tomorrow hopefully... Has anyone played? Id like to start running a leaderboard (see original post)

Finally got around to playing this one after a busy few days.  Loved it, some stunning courses, in fact an excellent mix of brilliant visuals and some excellent strategic holes.

Been a bit quiet on here... let's kick things off shall we?  I intend on going back over these in more detail later, but my first impressions:

Blu Violet: -3
This one was a gorgeous looking course, has a really unique style to it.  Thought it was excellent.

Kintana of the Madagascar: -2
Really nice looking tropical course, different look to any I can remember.  A lot of the auto gen seems to be gone which is a good thing, some nice use of rocks and water.

Valley of grace GC: +1
Classic Ursus :-D... great looking countryside course with tricky greens.  A frustrating +1 but enjoyed it.

Windsong Shores (Oceanside Nine): -3
Absolutely stunning looking course.  The plot looks excellent, setup for excellent visuals.  It looks to me like the full course could be a classic

Carolina Low GC: E
Already played the full 18 and loved it.  Looks great but above that is a thinking man's dream course, a joy to play.

Tye Dunes II: -2
One of my own.  I picked 3 tricky greens out there :).  Prob not as good as the Original Tye Dunes, but I'm quite fond of it and was great fun to build.

Total: -9

Happy with my scoring on here, there are better scores already on PS4... get posting em :-D

Glad u didn't mention some of my tee boxes, shocking. This was a good example of me paying too much attention to aesthetics and neglecting fundemental presentation! I'll try and finish the tour by weekend and do a 9 hole vid for my fav course if I get a minute

Real nice set of courses on this tour.  All the holes were excellent. 

I had a lot of lag on Kintana that cost me 3 strokes.  Putted off the green on #1 (was a 31 ft, 9-inch uphill putt that I sent 56 feet across the green) and an 87% shot put my drive on #2 into the water.  Looked really nice though.

I finished -4 for the tour.

Kintana of the Madagascar: +1
Valley of grace GC: -1
Windsong Shores (Oceanside Nine): -3
Carolina Low GC: E
Tye Dunes II: -1

Don't take too much stock in it.  My PC is way underpowered and I can only really run the game on low settings.  I tried to run on high settings so to get a better feel for the course.
