ABOUT MY REVIEWS ...

Before I reach the first tee, I take note of the "little" things. Is there enough parking? Are there bathrooms? Practice basket? Practice area for drives? Close to amenities (food, petrol)? Map/scorecard available, either online or at the course?

Once on the course, what do I find?
Teepads: Single, or multiple? Dirt/sand/gravel, or a hard surface? Signs - any? How descriptive?

Baskets: single, or multiple? How many locations? Directions to next teepad? How easy to see from a distance (e.g. yellow band, or flag, something)?

Flow: Fairly natural, or was there a lot of backtracking? How far between baskets to next teepads? How many fairways crossed, or were bunched together?

Out-of-bounds: Roads? Woods? Water? Poison ivy? Bramble? That is, what is the chance of losing a disc, and/or being a bit wounded? :-O

The holes themselves - how much variety was there? Short, medium, and/or long? Up, down, and around hill? Left, right, S-flights? Low ceilings? Tunnels? When (early, middle, end) of the flight path did obstacles occur? Where (initial drive, approach, putt) did the obstacles occur?

I am a bit biased against very woody holes. I don't mind having to dodge a few obstacles, but am no fan of tree pinball! :-)

Courses I rate:

0.0-0.5 are courses I wouldn't bother playing again nor would recommend.

1.0 are courses I probably won't bother playing again, but may be of interest to others.

1.5-2.5 are courses I would play again but have either peaked at a decent level, or are challenging but have some/lots of room for improvement.

3.0-4.0 are courses I would certainly recommend and would play again given any reasonable chance. The higher the score, the more eager I would be to play them/the more I would go out of my way to do so!

4.5-5.0 Make every effort to play this course! :-)
