Thirteen here

wolfhaley 01-01-2020 09:10 PM

6 so far. Hopefully 2 next year

Seven here (Iron Hill, Picnic Island, Harmony Bends, the Lodge, Harmon Hills, Selah Lakeside, and Whippin' Post). I hit up 3 of those in the past 4 months and had at least 2 narrow misses.

I also feel like I should get half credit for PA. Is Muddy Run's 4.67 really superior to Moraine's 4.66 (or Deer Lakes' 4.64)? I just one more review. Any takers? Just one 4.0 oughta do it!

Out of curiosity, what was your cutoff on number of reviews? 20?

Why does Warwick Park an almost nothing course get so high? Simply due to all people from NYC playing that course as the ONLY course they have ever played. The other one yeah it deserves to be that high for a course having see it online the Steel course scares me having looked up that course. Just looking online at Warwick is just a City park without even tee markers meaning you have to play from the previous basket to the next basket except the first hole having a small tee marker. Reading online here in the reviews of players getting hit trying to make an 18 holes into 35 holes. That is if I am thinking of the right course, closest to NYC.

Muddy Run at 4.67 is criminal; doubly so to be labeled better than Moraine or Deer Lakes.

There are three courses at Warwick with Brakewell Steel being the first and probably still best of the three, pioneering the dual tee/dual basket layout with animal motif ironworks tee markers. Wolfe Woods came next as a Memorial to Scott Wolfe, who provided significant help to develop the Brakewell course. Wolfe Woods is a volunteer effort and hasn't yet gotten the financing and support needed to complete the course to the level of Brakewell. The Oasis is Brakewell designer, Dan Doyle's private facility still being built but well on the way to match the flexibility and eventually provide nicer amenities than the Brakewell course.

I’ve played six: Harmon Hills (TN), Hobbs Farm (GA), Iron Hill (DE), Seneca Creek (MD), Harmony Bends (MO) and Idlewild (KY).

I’m surprised that the overrated Seneca Creek is the “best” in Maryland; the second-highest course, Ditto Farms, is better, IMO. I’d like to play the other 4.0+ courses in Maryland to be convinced. :)

Hoping to add Ashe County Park (NC) to the list in 2020.

I'll withhold judgement until I get to play it, but Pennsylvania's 2 and 3 have certainly cemented their place, justifiably, in the US top 20.

I'm curious, what is your top course in MD and in VA?
