Notable reviews include, Rollin Ridge, Fairfield, Blue Ribbon Pines, Idlewild, The Canyons, Flip, Wilderness and Lincoln Ridge.

Pizza God (1046) and c_a_miller (1268) and both still waiting for their 250th unique voter.
I read a few of Wolfhaley's reviews yesterday when deciding where to drive to play a "new to me" course. Definitely a useful reviewer to calibrate your tastes against as he's played and reviewed a ton of courses. I didn't agree with all of his ratings (not to say that this is a reasonable expectation), but he seems to be consistent in his approach (which matters more in my book). Wolf provides just the right amount of detail in his reviews. You can get a good feel for the course without having to read a novel.

We ended up playing Silver Fox and enjoyed it. I can confirm that concrete tees were indeed added since the review was written. The course has a good balance of challenge and fun. There are lines to hit if you want to score and ways to play relatively safe, but bad shots are punished haard. The multishot holes are all about placement; if you don't land in the fairway, good luck. Despite all that, it wasn't a total beatdown. I'm not sure I'd give it a 4.5, but I definitely wouldn't go below 4.

Thanks wolf, for helping me make the decision on where to play yesterday. You didn't steer me wrong.
