From Franklindisc's review of a new course in Nashville, TN- Fontanel Mansion: Pro- "Only took me 10 minutes to get there."

Not only is that ridiculous and completely unhelpful and irrelevant to just about everyone else, but I personally disliked the course and could not resist adding a Pro to my review: "Takes me more than 10 minutes to get there."

From a couple different reviews at Carver Rec Center:

I mentioned that there is not much difficulty. Actually there is an element of difficulty that is not found on many courses, namely fear. Because this course is situated in such an economically challenged community there are a couple of things you will be afraid of. First, you'll be afraid of not being able to see you vehicle from all of the holes. It's hard to concentrate on putting when, "I wonder if someone is breaking into my car" is going through your mind. Additionally, some of the park users are a little shady. You'll probably assume they have mischief on their mind. This includes but is not limited to being afraid that they will steal your wallet or just simply "pop a cap" in your ass. I guess in some way this makes up for the lack of difficulty but it's quite distracting.

and

these baskets need to get pulled and placed in a location where you can enjoy a round without the fear of being shanked.

this may have been posted already but it's worth reading again

Partly because I got mentioned in a review and noticed it on my own . . . I rarely read other reviews unless I am going to play a course and want to see what other think . . . and partly because this quote about the coeds and men of the cloth and other things is just awesome!

The Valkyrie Kid's review of Bethel University

"There are no signs although I was able to follow it easily with the help of the on-line map and by asking a future man of the cloth."

"Cons: Besides the fact that it's private and we're all sneaking on and playing it. I observed a beer bottle on # 2. Either harr0140 left it or a seminary student wasn't following the rules. There were a couple of longer walkouts." harr014 don't drink beer . . . its a safe assumption with me being born and raised and back in Milwaukee, WI . . . but I am a Rum and Gin kindof guy. Beer just doesnt taste good!

"Other Thoughts: I saw some coeds of the female variety and they were smoking hot so I've decided if I were younger, this would be the school for me. A great little course to play and lovely coeds. I'd enroll, play golf by day and chase the christian cuties by night until they caught onto my scam. Then they would send my heathen behind out the back gate. Maybe tarred and feathered. Who knows? It might be worth it!" I surely wish I saw some coeds when I was there . . . I must have gotten there too early (6:45 AM)

Talk about a challenge!

And, as The Valkyrie Kid has so kindly pointed out,

Quote:
"The map was written by either:

A: University California Santa Cruz Graduate Students writing their Doctorate Thesis on: The Earth's Relative Position To Monterey Bay Regarding The San Andreas Fault"

or

B: Drunken Japanese Frat Boys

Either way. It made absolutely no sense to us."

a review for Valpo's course includes:

Hole 8 is jail from start to finish and has a neigh impossible line around a zillion skinny lil' trees. Throw right, you are OK. get left and just jump in front of a bus. You'll feel better.

Hole 10 is long, long, and long. Also, the fairway is narrower than a 10 year old's ass.

Hole 13 can die in a house fire. Uphill, long, jail the entire way down, and the pin sits on a cliff in the long position. I'd rather get taken to jail and made a large man's girlfriend than to play this hole again.

Hole 14 is 4598409584095 feet downhill with woods all the way down and a HUGE right hand turn. Hang glide to the bottom. It'll be MUCH faster.

there more, check out numbernine entire review:

I've played that course a couple of dozen times now and while there are sometimes a shady character or two, I have had no incidences or problems there. I am not a "tough guy" by any means as I tend to avoid confrontation, but generally found that the people that use the park are extremely friendly.

Either way through, for a first time park user, it can be daunting but overall a funny review. Even though I disagree with the review, I did laugh the whole time reading it and it was very entertaining.
