Explanation of Review Criteria (subject to change)
I will score my reviews based on 5 categories: Tee pads, Baskets, Layout/Design, Scenery/Surroundings, and Likeliness to Return.
I will score each category out of a possible 5, then average the scores for a final score.
Teepads; good tee pads would be concrete, level, and sufficient space. The larger, the better. Bad tee pads would be none at all.

Baskets; good baskets will catch well. Ideally, triple chains - at least double chains. They will be easily identifiable, and they will be in a good shape. Bad baskets will be single chained, missing chains, hard to spot, or damaged.

Layout/Design; A good layout will contain a large variety of shots (i.e. long, short, tight, open, water etc.). The design will be well-thought out, and the course will make adequate use of the land provided. The course would have good flow, with baskets leading to the next tee pad. A course that loops from hole #1 to the end is a plus. Nice tee signs, "next tee" signs, and maps help as well. Fair/clear lines and fairways for holes help the layout score as well.
A bad layout/design would be boring to play (lack of obstacles or variety). Flat, barren courses fit this description. A course that intersects on holes too often is poorly laid out. A course that is difficult to navigate is poorly designed. A course that fails to utilize the good qualities of the land would be poorly laid out.

Scenery/Surroundings; Good scenery would be beautiful, in my opinion. Friendly neighborhoods are a plus. Pro shops, driving ranges, and vending machines are good qualities. Safe wildlife (and even a little danger, like gators) is good for a course. Trash cans and benches are nice as well.
Bad surroundings would involve high-crime neighborhoods. An abundance of high grass, spiderwebs, bugs, thick brush, thorny bushes, or mud would hurt a score. Lots of trash is verrry bad for a score.

Fun Factor (Formerly Likeliness to Return); This score is based purely on how much I enjoyed the course - how much fun I had. I rate the course based on the likelihood that I would return to play again, assuming I was in the area. To me, a fun course has variety, ace runs, downhill bombs, and an overall fun design.
