Other Info/Notes:
When rating courses, I consider tiers to begin at each whole number. 4/4.5 courses are must-plays, 3/3.5 are solid courses and well worth a visit, 2/2.5 have some drawbacks that diminish the experience but aren't time wasters, 1/1.5 have some serious problems, and 0/.5 courses are hardly courses at all. Generally, there's a bigger difference for me between a 3.5 and a 4.0 than there is a 3.0 and a 3.5. A 5 is reserved for the truly transcendent.

Variety is hugely important to how I rate a course. I think a mix of hole lengths, levels of woodedness, pars, and shots is essential to make a top tier course. Consistency is also a key factor: I tend to rate courses higher that have evenly-distributed quality than ones that have some amazing holes and some duds.

I use my wish list to mark courses I may have the opportunity to visit in the near future as well as ideals. Hence the eclectic mix.
