Bc it is the top 10 courses.

Not seasonal or whatever. There is no clogging up anything. Anyone traveling to play a course should do some DD.

The DGCR top ten, is nowhere close to being the top disc golf courses in the US. Neither is the top 25...

I agree with David on this. The courses should be listed in order of the disc rating regardless of whether it is currently open.

As Aim points out, I never travel to a destination course without research. Obviously if a course page indicates "unplayable", i move on down the list.

Most experienced travelers plan months in advance, and will change routings/order played, or even when we take that trip... around the availability of the courses we want to play. As Aim said, IT'S ON PLAYERS to do a bit of due diligence.

We're a little further down the rating scale, but haven't had too much problem with this. Of those we've had, most weren't DGCR users.

To deal with those, we've added a sign, stating that if you don't have reservations, you can't play (but more tactfully). If someone still doesn't do due diligence and arrives when it's closed---that's their problem.

That's what is so amazing about Harmon Hills. It's so accessible to the public. I think I stuffed a $20 in the donate box when I was there and I still felt like I was getting away with theft. Such a rare privilege to just be able to show up and play a private like that, so easy to take for granted.

This flurry of driveby's is on the precipice of pushing Järva into the Top 10. Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't that make it the first non-US course to do so?

Public Service Announcement: Get ready for John Houck's new course, Parc des Familles, located just south of New Orleans, in Marrero, Louisiana. It is the premier Cypress swamp, wooded course ever created. I played it for the first time yesterday. Out of the 569 listed courses that I have played, it jumps straight into the top 10, of which none are really ahead of the others. The only cons that I could see anyone writing are that it lacks any elevation (it's south Louisiana) and that the finishing holes are a little underwhelming (mainly because the level of phenomenal-ness starts out very quickly and peaks somewhere in the middle rather than at the end). It's regal beauty is breathtaking, however, especially if you have an appreciation for the South Louisiana landscape. I am so lucky that this course is an hour and a half drive from my house!

It would need 7 more drive-bys to make the magic threshold number of 21 reviews. Currently however, it would slot in at 8th for courses with 14 or more reviews. This is one of the reasons I would like to see a seperate critics (TR) top 10/25, as ballot stuffing like this would get filtered out on that list. I'm sure this is a really nice course. I had actually wish listed some time ago as I have preliminary plans to travel to Sweden in 2 or 3 years.
