Pilgrim Hills Golf Club by Masterbroomer. Full video review at http://www.twitch.tv/crazycanuck1985/b/597435442 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-VFKnpXPD8

A Bit Rough Around the Edges

Pros
- A nice group of par 3's
-Some scenic holes, boreal theme looks good here.
A couple par 4's make you really think about your approach off the tee.

Cons
- Bunkering needs a major overhaul. Much too flat, too many middle of the fairway bunkers, bland shapes. Some work here will make your course much better!
- A bit flat in some areas

Verdict- A course with alot of potential but needs some contouring and bunker work to stand out and play again. 6/10- Average

I would appreciate it if you could take a look at my Chatterton Golf Club course as it has only had 13 plays on PC, 3 of which was my own online group! With so many courses available it is very difficult to generate plays unless you are in that elite group whose courses make the suggested list and get 100's of plays. I think far too many courses are being overlooked as a consequence.
My last 7 courses (newest first):
Binyon Peak
McGonagall Golf Club
Lovelace Bay
Swinburne Forest GC
Brackenridge Nine by Acrilix
Drayton Lakes
Chudleigh Golf Club

Swindler's Bluff by PHJ314. Full review at http://www.twitch.tv/crazycanuck1985/b/597447154 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cG-demQBx7s

In Love With the Links

Pros
- Excellent attention to detail
-Great planting and design. A classic links "feel"
- Very tough (if that's your sort of thing) but not "tricked up"
-Not a weak hole in the bunch

Cons
- The rough ribboning around the fairways is a bit thin in my opinion

Verdict- Go play this now. The most fun you will have shooting over par. Highly recommended 9/10

Next up: The Tributaries...broadcasting momentarily http://www.twitch.tv/crazycanuck1985

Hey again Craze,

TYVM for taking time to play & critique my 1st TGC course for others to see here in the forum

I appreciated your commentary as I viewed your Twitch feed while you played and was pleased that you looked favorably on some aspects of the design concepts on certain holes that I put emphasis on making for a solid, realistic course

I was hoping you would cut the corner on #10 by going over the trees there though ---- you could have made it   ;)

I also agree that my bunkering technique was lacking as I was much more focused on learning to use the design tools on all other aspects of the build to effect a fun, rewarding-to-play experience for users

I also trust I didn't make you come away from your round any sicker than when you began ;D

keep up the good work on your reviews ---- I know the community here welcomes and applauds your efforts

The Tributaries by Introvert1976. Full Review at http://www.twitch.tv/crazycanuck1985/b/597458477 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0OUBtk1EyO4

A Solid Course With an Identity Crisis

Pros
-"Tributary" theme done very well, lots of creek carries, kept things interesting.
-" Great use of lighting. Shadow effects were very nice.
- Good bunkering and depth to bunkers
- Some classic "risk-reward" holes

Cons
- #8 needs to be fixed. Pretty hole, but a slightly errant drive gets stuck in the rocks and is an instant round ruiner.
-#18 seems too far away from the club house..looks a bit odd to me.
- This course isn't sure what it wants to be. A challenging course with a "major" feel, or a relaxing resort course?

Verdict Another solid boreal course. Definitely worth a play..be careful about those rocks on #8 though! Recommended 8/10

Hope your Irons are Dialed in!

Pros
- An open, Autumn theme design. Look worked for me.
- Some nice looking holes, holes were relatively close together. Makes you feel like you could play this course in real life.
-Strong opening hole

Cons
- Greens were inconsistent. Many were much too small and had severe elevation changes.
-Rough ribboning around the fairway was inconsistent and looked a bit jagged.
- Bunkering was "just ok"

Verdict- A nice autumn themed course that suffers a bit from small greens. If you like an accuracy challenge, you will love this course! Recommended- 7/10

Up next Royal Acres Club (Front 9)- Really looking forward to this one. Broadcast about to start http://www.twitch.tv/crazycanuck1985

Thanks for the play and your comments. It's always interesting to see your course from another perspective. I am still learning the ins and outs of the course designer but hope to get better as I go along. All of your critiques were valid. Sorry for the 8th hole. Didn't realize it sloped towards the rocks that much. Again, thanks for playing.

Royal Acres Club by RTomboli. Full review at http://www.twitch.tv/crazycanuck1985/b/597522694 or https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M9vqYCPH74w

WOW.

Pros
-Drop dead gorgeous course.
-Exceptional tree and bush planting.
- Not one "OK" hole. All were memorable in some respects.
- Many holes made you really think about club selection
-Great bunkering and contouring all over the course

Cons
-One hole seemed like it needed a way to cross the creek..no bridge (#4?)
- #9 hole a bit in the shadows, tricky to see

Verdict- Simple. Play it. Then play it again. Then try to figure out how you can make a course that looks as impressive as this one. Can't wait until the back nine Highly Recommended 9.5/10
