?? i counted 10, 11 if you count Jah Plastifari (who is now a TR)

3 reviews are from TRs and 11 have at least 10 years of playing


one of those reviews is also a 3.0. if that review had been a 4.5 (the next lowest review) the rating would be 4.90

Can’t wait to get out there and play Caliber as it’s been on my radar since I started hearing the rumblings of what was going in the ground. When somebody tells me that “if you loved Bohart, you will absolutely love Caliber” I can’t think of a much better sales pitch.

Also, it’s just nice to see another Western US course on the Top 10 list. Based on the reviews from the TRs and the non-TRs that I know and trust, I’m going to love this one.

You're right. I must have had another filter on when I was sorting.

Only six of the 20 reviews are from people who've reviewed five or more courses. That's still a high drive-by percentage.

true

but of those 6, half are TRs and the other three have 25, 17, 16 years exp with 17 120, 48 courses played. hardly chumps and those ratings average 4.5, or 4.8 without the outlier 3.0

just playing the devil's advocate but obviously this rating will end up going down a bit as more discerning reviewers dole out more 4.5 ratings. now that it's in the top 10, i'm sure we can expect more reviews soon.

the preserve specifically the timberwolf only has 4 reviews

and they had that big tourney there (yes i understand it combined into a "black bear" layout)

and have weekly leagues and other tourneys there too

no appearing to be drive by reviews and only 4 reviews for timberwolf

based on the hype from the tc/stc im surprised there isnt 100 reviews as this summer it was all the rage

funny how that works eh

I reviewed it and I live 3 hours away. I probably got as many thumbs from a little 7 hole I played a couple weeks ago than I did for Timber wolf or Lynx.

preserve hasnt hit 10 total reviews from both courses

chains edge isnt in double digits either for a single course

Considering all of the activity and events at Highbridge this year, I'm surprised there aren't more reviews, even on UDisc. However, while the overall playability experience at the complex may have bounced back close to a 5, no individual course may deserve more than a 4 at this point, even if some players might want to score a course higher.

All five courses need some basic amenities to potentially get back in the 4.5 to 5 range. Gold is currently down to 9 holes in redesign mode. Blueberry still has new holes to be completed, short tees and alternate baskets installed. Granite is close to being ready but several tees still need repair and several pin placements added/moved. Woodland Greens is about as close to complete as any but could use some work around several tees to deal with cracking and erosion. The Bear is in decent shape but there are plans in the works to create more holes with elevation in unutilized areas, combine some holes, eliminate some holes, and trade off some holes for the Gold course revamp. At least this expansion work can be done while the current Bear layout remains playable through next year.

The most amazing fact about Caliber reviews to me is 35 played and 20 reviews. Compare this with 134 played and 23 reviews for Jarva, and 271 played and 22 reviews for Hawk Hollow.

I believe this speaks volumes about how much we appreciate the course and the Stiller family.
