Yea the term itself isn't great, its just what popped in my head. I like the even mixture term more. Maybe make moderately wooded mostly wooded.

When I think of terrain, I think of topography and elevation changes (e.g. rugged terrain... doesn't have me picturing trees).

I don't actually believe anyone's getting confused by this - just pointing out that it seems odd to me. Just thinking that if Tim's going to tweak anything, he might be able to fix that if doing so makes sense to most folks.

As has been pointed out (by many), I tend to think too much.
I never even noticed but I agree, Terrain should be the hilliness description, the terrain dictates water flow. Landscape is the descriptive features including vegetation.

I like that.

I think "Even Mixture" would also better describe the elevation/terrain for many courses.

I like "even mixture" and I like "densely wooded"

Renny pops in my head as "even mixture" (I just like how that phrase rolls off my tongue)

So what would Nevin be? Heavily or moderately wooded?

I was thinking about this when playing Chavez Ridge in LA. None of the holes have much elevation change at all, but if you miss your line you can roll 80 vertical feet down hills that the holes only play across. I would consider it mostly flat, but if you defined it based on the (potential) walk it would be in the moderately to very hilly categories.

I'll be the first DGCR employee payed by the community.

Sorry gentlemen, but I'm only interested in subsidizing one person's discing adventures, and he don't take no B.S.

I player Sertoma Field today. The description on this site was spot on for what I would consider the course. Moderately wooded.

[QUOTE=Dave242;1821542]Conclusions to my observations:
All areas have spotty issues (except IA) – mainly with Over-estimating
eIA is perfect and eMA & SC & Augusta do pretty well too – Devens is a big exception
wFL tends to over-estimate how Hilly they are
nIL & seWI have an issue with thinking things are more Wooded & Hilly than they are
Charlotte has an issue with over-estimating how Hilly they are
NC has an issue under-estimating how Wooded they are

Conclusion of the conclusion – most areas have issues…..I do not think it is accurate to pick on one area (except Charlotte and seWI are pretty bad in their consistency). I would love for Martin or Mashnut to do this same sort of analysis.

whew.....

I think thats both funny and awesome that NC has ana issue under estimating how wooded holes are.. Guess thats why the more I play, and the more people I have come play Simple Pleasures, the more trees I cut.. NC tough to judge tho, what some in NC call hills in Charlotte I call mounds
