When reviewing courses, I tend to hit the things that matter to me most: quality of baskets, quality of tee pads, quality of golf, and quality of manicuring. I'll add in personal sentiment where appropriate. Amenities are nice, but unless they're over the top (Rollin' Ridge, Bryant Lake pop to mind), I really don't care. Benches at each hole, for instance, don't influence my ratings.
I tend to prefer wooded courses, or technical courses. I'm a low 900's rated player (but climbing!) that throws around 400', as a skill guideline. Wide open bomber courses are just not my favorite, even though I do like to throw the occasional bomber hole.
If you have any questions regarding my reviews, or would like to play a round or ten while within 50 miles of Plymouth, WI, feel free to hit me up! I've played em all, and am always willing to show people around.
