Playing in winter has its advantages. It's never crowded. I love the solitude. And the snow absorbs all the sound, making it silent except for your footsteps, your breath, and the chains with their...

I agree. It's a different layout of the same course. Maple Hill's golds bear no resemblance to the red configuration and in some places use completely different parts of the property. They aren't...

On this note, I'm not sure why it is labeled as temporary. The tee pads and baskets for the gold course are there year round. I was confused by this when I did my review as well.

I understand that...

I'm the one with 106 reviews who gave it a 4.5. It is the most fun course I have played (not the best overall, but highest for pure fun factor).

I agree that it's annoying to see a rash of reviews...

I think asking someone to play all the tees is a tough ask. I've played Maple Hill more than a dozen times and I've never played the golds. If I'm traveling I don't necessarily try to play all the...

Bucksnort, Phantom Falls, and Magic Meadows are all somewhere around $20, and all are worth it. If you're traveling over 1000 miles to get there, don't try to save money on the courses. :) They're...

Intros. I don't want an intro that is any longer than three seconds. I really hate long segments trying to set the scene or provide unnecessary text. Just get me into the action.

The 100' range for me. I don't have anything consistent from that range, and it's a problem. I've started working on my forehand more because I like being able to stand and face the target. But I...

Brad, at least you got to the final round! :) I'm envious.

Sounds like a good time. I look forward to reading your reviews.

One piece of advice: you may want to skip Newton Hill and hit Devens on the way to Maine. It's pretty close to 495 and has two...

I played Bucksnort last summer, and it is absolutely in my top 10 (#8 currently, to be exact). It is the most fun course I've played. There are a lot of holes that are unlike anything else I've...

I didn't thumb his review down because he did justify his feeling, even if I don't agree with it much at all. But 3.5 does seem harsh.

I played Blueberry last summer and got around fine with a...

I will usually comment on the other positions or what not if they look interesting, but I rate the course that I played.

If you sort Maple Hill's reviews by year, their lowest year was 2009. This was right after a horrible ice storm came through and decimated some of the trees, and the reviews reflected it. Near hole...

I'll throw Pyramids #13 out there. Long drive down a narrow fairway, and I don't think I've ever executed a clean drive. A kick to the left puts you down the hill where you need to decide if you try...

For Maple Hill, I'd play the whites and blues. Truthfully the golds are really tough with some shots that are difficult to execute (the drive on 14, for example), but I can't argue with it being a...

Not sure what you are planning to play this year, but unless you're hitting Highbridge, Flyboy, or Selah Ranch, your top 3 might very well stay your top 3. I love those courses in the...

Yes, and Milo McIver and Whistler's Bend were in the top 10 as well. I think even Pier Park was very early in this site's infancy.

I started putting with it mainly out of frustration with leaving so many of my putters short when I putted, even for...
