Doesn't look like he read any reviews before he played it either.

TR reviews of really bad courses are great.

I'm just shocked Steve West totally missed the boat with his rating and review.

Dude says it's very scenic and challenging ... what more do you want??!!

What makes Steve's opinion worth the paper it's "printed" on? He's is a self-described Par Delusionary and has issues with how par is defined/established.

Kidding aside - I bet Steve looks at courses in ways even some of the more experienced reviewers don't consider (or at least not as quantifiably).

Reviews don't have to be novels, but...

A course that's a 5.0 makes you want to talk about it.
If you have trouble finding great things to say about it... then it ain't a 5.0.

I just figured out something actually useful about crap reviews.

When you read a useless review (at least when I do), I feel compelled to scroll down to find good reviews. I invariaby end up giving out a few 's to other reviewers... which I wouldn't necessarily have done if not for the review.


I bet Steve gets way more 's than you might expect for a review of a "meh" niner, specifically because that 5.0 routed a bunch of traffic his way. Just remember to use the sort by "Most Helpful" option, and the cream rises to the top!
