Not sure if I was meant to play pin 3, but if so, hole one has a very illegal pin you will want to fix.
Played a few holes from the front and back nine on different occasions - I like the sculpting, lighting and textures a lot. I think you could plant more between tee and fairway as it’s a bit empty (1 and 2) and generally needs more ground cover below the trees. Holes are well-designed (maybe the 13th tee shot is a bit pinched) and the bunkers look solid - which will be better than most. Personally, I’m not a fan of the tee box and straight line rough between tee and fairway (really stood out on 14). Finally, being honest, 14-15 didn’t do much for me - I’m assuming they are unfinished? Both felt a bit simple and particularly with 14, I’d look to challenge the tee shot and approach more.
Like I say, lots I liked here and I thought most of the holes were interesting. Figured you were after feedback so there you go - best of luck 🙂

Played the Club at Hill Valley in my quest to play all my Rookie design competitors efforts. Interestingly, when searching "hill valley" the course does not come up, I had to put the whole name in the search.
Anyhoo, I enjoyed playing this course. I thought it all fit together well as a venue, with an interesting mix of holes. I especially liked the high-risk #9 par four; since I wasn't playing for anything I went for it and wound up wet! I don't give particular feedback, except maybe for a "bad pin" (there weren't any) since I am just a rookie like you and I will leave that to the judges.
I don't see any reason why this course shouldn't be in contention.
