Other Info/Notes:
An average course for me is a 3.0, a touch higher than some others. This is due to the fact that I rarely give out 0's and .5's. If a course that bad exists, it usually doesn't warrant a review and/or it is torn out of the ground shortly after inception.

I also look for well rounded layouts when I rate a course. Sure some of those premier courses are excellent to play, but if 18 out of 18 holes are tight wooded shots, you won't get a perfect score from me. I think the perfect course will have a good variety of wooded/open holes to challenge all aspects of a players game.

When I rate a course, after contemplating the layout, I take a hard look at the details. How are the amenities, the tee pads, the signage, the benches? A course can have a good layout and poor amenities and suffer from it, and vice-versa. You'll need all the trimmings to get a perfect score from me.

I also tend to value the overall atmosphere and experience of a course more than others it seems. I'll tack on an extra .5 if I felt the atmosphere cultivated good vibes. Conversely, if there were environmental detractors, I could let that negatively affect the rating as well. A lot of disc golf is not only the challenge and competition, but simply the fact that you had fun, and that aspect is sometimes reflected in my reviews.

I hope you'll gather some useful information from the reviews I provide and if you would like additional insight feel free to inquire.
