This comment was made, and it got me thinking "how do we DGCR reviewers like our courses?"

I did a little analysis of 3.5+ rated 18+ hole courses with 10 or more reviews:

How Wooded	How Hilly	Count	Total	Percent	Top 3 courses
Lightly……	Mostly Flat	36	163	22%	Selah Ranch - Creekside (TX), Bill Frederick Park - T2: The Turkeynator (FL), Trophy Lakes (SC)
Lightly……	Moderately	44	114	39%	Milo McIver State Park (OR), Old Post DGC (AR), Bryant Lake Park (MN)
Lightly……	Very Hilly	14	26	54%	BAP Disc Golf (ME), Base Camp Adventure Lodge DGC (UT), Blue Valley Park (MO)
Moderately	Mostly Flat	97	242	40%	Blue Ribbon Pines DGC (MN), Zobel Park (WI), Madisonville City Park DGC (KY)
