If I was on a roadtrip and I saw this KOA had a basket and another didn't I would easily pick this one.

I mean, I would probably have my own portable but I would choose the DG friendly campground first.

Not all practice areas are created equal. I didn't review it, but Liberty Christian Fellowship in Cumberland, MD, has a lot more space to practice on than the course in the op. It really is a practice area and not a putting area. We actually had a small league there for a couple years using a 9 hole layout I created since there were no actual courses in Cumberland.

This thread actually makes me want to review it.

I will probably regret this post. But I don't really understand the controversy.

Yes we are on Disc Golf COURSE Review. However! We all know this site also has other DG-related features - including disc shops, profile pages, and most significantly this forum.

I don't mind practice baskets being listed on this site *and categorized separately as practice areas*, which they already are.

I agree with what I think the OP may be getting at...I don't know that standalone practice areas need reviews. It seems to me that a description on the course info page and a couple of photos might be enough. On the other hand, if practice area reviews are allowed as they currently are, that doesn't bother me either. Just like a course review, I would read a practice area review and look at the rating, but mainly look at the description in the review to make a determination on whether to go play. And sure if there are courses with practice areas on site nearby, I'm probably picking that 10 times out of 10.

If I played a practice area and bothered to review it, personally I would review it in the context of it being a practice area and not a course. Of course a practice area is a terrible "course". Everyone agrees on that, I think? But there are still a couple things to like or dislike about it, in my view. Is the basket(s) in good shape? Is it on a hillside? Is the entire circle 1 and circle 2 clear, as the review in question answers? Are there trees or obstacles in the practice area? I personally like it when there are trees in a practice area, which I have seen a couple times at courses (Flip City comes to mind). It gives me an opportunity to practice putting around them like I will have to on a good course.

Was "one basket" not clear enough for you?

not all practice areas are created equal

i would rather choose some practice areas than other ones

and of course i would rather choose a "real" course over a "practice" one

i would be interested if anyone had an example of a "practice area" that is better than a "real" course
