I think that should come from the opinions of the target group of players. If you're targeting 1000 rated players, it comes from their feels on it. If your target group is yourself, on your own property - that's where that comes from.

That can also be useful, it can help you understand, for example, what sort of hole metrics or combinations of metrics result in positive feedback from players. You can do propensity score matching when holes are changed to see if they're likely to result in positive or negative feedback from the target group of players.
