Stoney Hill should be on that TR list (near the bottom)

Does Flyboy even still exist? I know he originally removed it from here to reduce traffic, but it could still be potentially played. Is that still the case?

Yes.

On a very limited basis.

agreed. plus i also think it would be easy to add a tr number rating below the full rating.
for example - harmony bends - see thumbnail

rating:
ooooo
4.90
tr - 5.00

^ I like the idea, but I think the obstacle is that the list of TR's is continuously changing... always adding more TR's (and potentially dropping some, of helpfuls drop below 40% threshold).

Perhaps Tim will chime in.

Plus you can filter to see TR ratings for any given course, which doesn't require a massive recalc on an ongoing basis.

Though to me when you put it all together it's one the funnest and diverse courses you can play. It may not not hold up to newer designs but saying it isn't a fantastic course is just hating.
That's a great way to put it. I haven't played Hawk Hollow (one day, one day) but I can see this. The first 18 of Harmon is great golf but mostly lacks wow factor (unless you're wowed by rolling farmland) and the final 9 is like adventure golf, like its own separate 9 hole course.

Count me as one who thinks Langley is slightly Overrated. Though when I played it it was miserably overgrown.

Don't get me a wrong, Very good course just not top 10

that should be no different than the fact that new reviews are always changing the rating.


you can filter for TR ratings but having them attached to the course page as a permanent, searchable field would make it easier to do course searches.
