Default top 10 courses

Who else thinks there should be 50 reviews or more to make it to the top ten or 100! some of these courses with 20 reviews have no right to be there. I have not played all of these but the ones in the top 100 I have played! some are great and deserve it but others, no way!!

More regular reviews not needed but perhaps at least 10 reviews from trusted reviewers would be enough. But agree there are courses more deserving than some currently in the top 10.

Only very heavily played courses are Top 10?

Is that the limitation I want when I'm planning to a trip to play great courses?

How much does a course's rating change between 20 and 100, anyway?

Agreed that a trusted reviewers rating should be weighted more. But there has to be some standard that would prevent a course that may have a high rating based on minimal reviews than a course that is rated a bit lower but has lots of reviews.

Seems we have a similar problem to baseball's All Star Voting. LOLOLOLOLOL. Maybe not as blatant.

Also, players are going to have their preference on their favorite type of course to play, so keep that in mind.

There are only 103 courses with 50+ reviews. Looks like a Top-10 by that criteria isn't much different.

But, O.P., if you like that standard, you can search and sort courses based on it and get the results you want.

I don't know. I have seen some very (crazily) suspect reviews from trusted reviewers.

I've seen comparisons between Trusted-Reviewer-only ratings, and overall ratings, and the differences aren't enough to matter.

This seems more like yet another case of "My opinion is different from the rest of the world. The rest of the world must be wrong."

That may or may not be the case but I believe in the Law of Averages. For those minute amount of reviews that might be off base, there are considerably more that are right on point rendering the scores of the off base reviews useless.
