Someone has to write reviews so other DGers don't waste their time playing mediocre layouts.

My issue with your review is that it was not a disc golf course. The site is called "DG COURSE Review".

Writing a review for a practice basket will make it more likely that people go there thinking its a course.


As far as me calling "B.S." on your review of the putting basket, I will let you have the last word.

This feels like a weird hill to pick. It says "practice area", and the review says it's a single basket in a practice area. If someone goes to KOA expecting a course, that's on them.

Also, you have to actually select "practice" when using either the course search tool or the course map, so if a practice area comes up as an option, that's because the person wanted it to pop up.

I second the "list EVERY basket" notion. It's nice to know it's there. Give a full paragraph on the description of that basket. Give the practice area a 3/5 for its bathhouse. Rate the beer and food at the brewery if the practice area is a part of one, like on Dreadlock's recent review. Go nuts.

If they build it, we will come. It's a disease for every course bagger.

Sorry, but this is in the wrong thread. This thread is expressly dedicated to bad/homer COURSE reviews. You should start a different topic if you want to discuss bad/homer practice area reviews.
