From wellsbranch250's review of Ol' Colony in Tuscaloosa, Ala.:

Agree wholeheartedly. I started playing disc golf in college in the late '80s with Wham-O Frisbees on an object course. A dozen years later, I saw a note in the local newspaper (remember those) about...

I throw a .50 Cal (by Arsenal), a 9-speed fairway drive a buddy gave me. He said it didn't work for him (he's a LONG thrower) but thought it would work for me. Once in a while I touch 300 feet on a...

This course MIGHT be one of the best ever (5.0). But color me skeptical when the only review of a two-year-old course is from the course designer. And when the reviewer does not disclose that he is...

"Unbiased" review from course designer

Opinion, by definition, can't be wrong. You or I might strongly disagree with them, but they are not facts.

I tend to agree, but a review is an opinion, so I am willing to give some latitude. I am more concerned about the lack of math skills. 3-4 loops jogging in an hour OR 15-20 minutes playing without...

Or perhaps does know what average means and is purposely trying to mislead people. Either way, I choose to believe the facts rather than uninformed opinion.
