I hear you about "the children". Right now we "drive hard, putt harder". IMO S&D and baskets that wouldn't accept a 30mph putt would both be improvements to the game. But most people think that...

John,
You know as well as I that "ratings" are not necessarily "...for one's playing experience..." but ARE "for the course" in total. Right or wrong, damming or not. And I believe unless you know...

You said the magic word..."picture"! GOOD pictures (and updated ones...as courses get changed, as they're apt to do) are IMO worth more than ALL the reviews put together! By a lot! Then I can "see...

This whole thing about water being OB...if it's marked as such, fine; if the TD mentions it, fine; if neither those two, it's NOT OB. Just because it's water doesn't mean it's OB!

Now that I know your "purpose" be careful of getting too "mathy" (as you, Kennedy, and some others are apt to do). The best holes are not 'made of numbers on paper' but are 'already...

Tough to answer as I'm struggling with the definition of a "9 hole course". I'm assuming there is no ambiguity with a course that has 9 tee boxes each going to a separate basket, but what about the...

Coupe,
To answer your last sentence's question, try 'lack of ambiguity'. If there weren't some, this thread would never have been made!

I don't think it is a perfect analogy (ball on the rim). In bball a goal is not made until the entire ball has passed in a downward path past the top of the rim. Ours could be stated (and ruled) as...

The main reason that top bh'ers are only throwing high 70s is the lack of "lever(s) length". Top oh'ers (akin to javelin throwers a/o baseballers) have a 'lever length' (extending from the ground to...

This is one way of thinking of it (like you said, maybe hard to do), but since we have gravity working for us (always do!) another way to look at it is that "the bottom of the basket" is the goal. ...

Yes sir, sure am!
I think you're smart putting in such a way so as not to miss TOO long (if you do miss). But a LOT of players DO putt too hard, miss (or cut through), and then grip.
