Was it me by any chance? It's a difficult one, I ummed and ahhed over posting reviews on my own, but thought I would do it making it clear I was the designer so likely to have a big ol' bias.

Issue is no-one else over here posts reviews on courses and some of the ones that are posted are just ridiculous, 4+ stars for crappy little nine holers with no tees, overgrown, poorly signposted, poor flow, boring layout rubbish. I'm trying to encourage others to use this site more actively to give more objective views but not getting very far at the moment!

I'm kind of with you here. if the designer is up front about it being his own course, it's better than no reviews at all IMHO. INFO is what people want, and at least I'll know the nature of the course.
