Question:

What happens if the original course designer(s) are no longer active or are not listed for a specific course. Can a local club representative take the place of the course designer? Maybe label him/her a "course caretaker"?

That's a good idea, I'll see if it's something I can set up tomorrow.

It's really meant for the person that designed the course to respond to the reviews, if they're not active, aren't listed or aren't members then "no response for you!". I don't want to start including others in this as the responses will begin to lose whatever value they may have if you start including too many people.

Tim, this is an awesome idea! I've now spent a season doing only a tiny bit of help as a new course is going in, and getting to know the designer and his hundreds of hours he's put into the course (no it's not listed yet). I think it should definitely be a privilege the designers deserve. I'm sure most will be cordial with the consequences you mentioned in mind.
...but were you just looking for one more thing to have to moderate?

If you're a designer and would like response access, you can PM or email me with your DGCR name or DGCR ID # and a link to the course you designed and I can set it up. Once you've been entered as a designer you will see a "Respond to this review" link under each review.

A quick rule: responses should be cordial in nature. This is not for blasting a reviewer or review you don't like, it's meant to explain your position on an issue that might have been brought up, clear up misconceptions, etc. Members can report responses should they be out of line. If I see a pattern of attacking reviews/reviewers or general negativity from a designer I will remove your ability to respond to reviews. Your member name will be attached to each response.
Excellent addition. Question: does it have to be the actual course designer, or (like in my case) he has another person helping the course designer with regular upkeep? I also have some insight for responding to reviews that might have questions or concerns.

Mt Airy in Cincinnati was installed by a group of club members back in the early 90s. Most of those people are not active anymore. The course has had some holes removed and replaced by others over the years. This was done by people other than the original installers/designers.
I was part of the original group but have not been involved in the changes.

How would that be taken care of, Tim?

Hope this feature doesn't get outta hand but I think it will help others understand how the designing of dg courses is no easy task.

I'm in if it will help the site.

When the history of a course is that convoluted, it's easier to leave it as is (ie. nobody can respond to the reviews).
