Default What state has the HIGHEST Average rating for courses?

This has become a trend recently so I thought I would try this one.

Anyone want to do the math and figure out what a states average rating is? and what state is the highest and which is the lowest?

I am not a fan of math so I will throw out a few guesses. . .

Highest: TX, NC, OR, IA, and/or MN (maybe VT - I played 5 courses two summers ago and all were sweet)
Lowest: IL, AZ (except for Flag), RI (only 1 course I think), NJ, and WY

I bet someone is doing the math right now. . .

I could probably do wisconsin, anyone in another state that wants something else to trashtalk about do your hom state. Do not include practice courses, temp courses or extinct courses, but I saw lets keep the private courses in, so it would just be the default course search, just do the pulldown to your state and go.

Sorry Illinois, this one is gonna hurt you too!

This won't really rate course greatness, just measure homeboy bias

One of the regulars here had a spreadsheet that listed the highest/lowest for each state, etc. Probably had the average, too. Who was that regular, and where is the spreadsheet?

It might do a little of both prerube . . . it might come down to how many locals rated the courses and how many outsiders, but it is some more unending math and comparison for people to latch on to. I think we would be surprised how many states will be very close in average rating in my mind, and the higher ones and lower ones may also happen to be the states with the smaller sample sizes . . .

WI - 2.53 for 201 courses

Who is next? I will monitor this thread over the coming days and any smaller states with few courses I will also do the averages, but if you are in a state with more than a handful of course please do a course search and then run down the entire list by hovering the mouse over the rating and it will give you the exact rating for each course, and move down to the next. It took me 5 minutes for 201 courses.

Are you averaging the stars, or averaging the actual ratings? Better specify.

I am averaging the overall ratings when they show with 20 courses per page. Hover over the disc rating and it will tell you the exact average
