Poor Adam_Valk gave Flip City a less than 5 review

Just because Adam only gave a 4.5 out of 5 total for Flip City; he's getting the severe thumbs down treatment. Only thing he said was that there is no water there. I personally, have only given one 5 rating so far; and part of the reason is because water IS IN PLAY on nearly half the holes of a 24 hole layout. Now, I have yet to play Flip City; though, I am hoping to remedy this in 2010...hopefully by meeting a bunch of my fellow DGCR members at a big get together. But, if one is considering a 5 to be perfect....wouldn't water shots have to be included? Thoughts???

I gave him a thumbs down because the review was not helpfull, not because I disagreed with the content of the review.

Hmmm, at first I felt inclined to agree with you but I don't think a course should be knocked for lacking a certain environmental feature. I don't think water should be a requirement of the 5 disc ideal, but what water represents, a hazard where you are sure to lose discs, should be. It just seems preposterous to think that courses in the deserts and other regions couldn't be 5s b/c they lack water hazards.

If ball golfers were rating the best of their best; the ones that would be chosen; would certainly have serious water features. True???

I have to disagree about water being required for giving a 5 rating.
Water is one item that if it is not there already, it's not going to be put in for a disc golf course. The same thing could be said for hills and valleys.

Course design and upkeep makes a 5 rating. Water is not required, but it makes course designs so much better.

I don't think water HAS to be present for a 5 on a course, it depends on the person. I know people who HATE water and will skip those holes, and i know some people who love water holes. If a course has some awesome elevation, shot selection, good tees/sighns/baskets, its fun...etc it can still get a 5. Im sure some peopleow uld rate down for water, because they are afraid to loose some discs.

I like the fact that he mentioned the lack of water, but that one point doesn't make it a good review.

Now if it had been a detailed review that covered multiple points of the course and then gave it a 4.5 and got marked down - then I would have an issue.

I'm just saying these threads seem like thinly veiled cries for validation.
