The NC/TN mountains have some excellent courses and are much cooler than the rest of the Southeast. Plus, the drives from course to course are scenic.

On the other hand, not as easy to fly into...

It was an amazing story, that he rescued it and gave it a few more years of life.

Just one more reminder that private courses are ephemeral. Play them while you have them.

It's a good point.

I was thinking a bit more simplistically -- mainly, that if for a given hole, different scores come from players with the same average rating, it may have too much reliance on...

Thanks. Very interesting. I was thinking in terms of hole-by-hole, seeing of some holes had a greater spread in the ratings, than others. After which, I'd ponder what it meant.

If you really want to see what's mathematically possible, look at the younger kids in a juniors tournament. I think I've seen one in the high 200s.

Well, most of the country/world isn't very hilly, to begin with. DGCR only lists 754 "very hilly" courses, regardless of foliage.

Stoney Hill is listed as only "moderately wooded", because it...

We have a flat, open, treeless green at Stoney Hill.

It's there to throw you off your game, after facing some sort of danger at virtually every other basket.

My experience too, with an exception when AmWorlds was to be held close by and a lot more locals were interested in playing. Otherwise, I never hear about points.

I don't use it at all, but frequently play with someone who uses it to keep score for the group. That's on the traditional, at-the-end-of-each-hole style.
