We have a site in Australia to review courses too and it allows only whole numbers out of 5. So creating differentiation is so hard.

Any top notch 18 I have to give a 5,and no 9s deserve a 4 even, so left giving them a 3, despite some being way better then others.

As for courses without multi-play holes, I'd agree, its just not the same to me. Currently my highest rated par 54 is at 3.838 - Cliff Stevens. Every course in my current top 10 has several par 4s and most have a par 5. That stated, I'm fairly certain that if I ever had the opportunity to play an all par 3 course like Bucksnort, I'd rate it at least a 4.5. That one just looks so awesome, in so many other ways.

Seems you are pretty much dependent on the reviewers to specify the their opinion. On this site, their have been a number of reviews with the title "Really a 4.25 or 4.75". It's cool that the site exists for you guys.

There is no Trey Twist!!! hahahaha! There's Trey Deuce and Texas Twist.

My group had a bad experience at the Trey Ranch. The Deuce course was swamped, so we walked off after 3 holes. Twist was navigable, but not overly enjoyable. Relevant to the recent discussions here, 55 degrees and windy and swampy made me not like those courses much. If it was dry and 70 and sunny, I bet I'd rate them a lot higher. But I don't see us ever passing up Lakeside and Creekside to give the Trey courses another shot.

What's the world coming to... letting Hawk Hollow into the top 10 with cow paddies instead of concrete pads ?
This is an outrage. Someone call the amenity police, quick.

I almost had heat stroke on one of them. I was not in a good frame of mind to rate it. lol
