Default Up and Coming Good Reviewers

This purpose of this thread is to recognize reviewers who write thorough, thoughtful, and useful reviews that deserve some recognition for their time and effort. I would like to spotlight only 2 groups-- those who have not yet earned a medal and Bronze because the Silvers and Golds are already getting at least some recognition. I would particularly like to highlight the people who don't have a medal yet but are on a noteworthy path.

I will start with aredoubles because he is writing some very thorough reviews from all over my beloved North Carolina! Check him out.

bikinjack has always written good reviews. He's been around for quite a while, but I'd like to see him write more reviews!

I need to get back in the game. Been a couple years since I've reviewed anything.

Upshawt1979 has been writing great, often overlooked, reviews for years with little to no fanfare. Look how many of his reviews have 3 or fewer positive votes. He finished playing all 50 states last year without bringing any attention to it.

Thanks for the shout-out, Olorin! I started writing reviews last year, after playing my 100th course. I realized how much value I was getting from reading everyone's thoughtful reviews on DGCR over the years, and figured I should probably give back and start chipping in with some myself. Glad they've been useful for folks. I need to find more time for writing.

Another solid reviewer who writes concise, easily digestible reviews is DumfriesLizzie. She's been churning out well-written reviews for the past year or so. I actually think her reviews are the ideal length, touching on the top handful of pros & cons while providing a solid overview of a course.

Shadrach3 in the Atlanta area has apparently caught the itch. He's been on a tear bagging and reviewing the Atlanta area. Excellent discussion topic Lowe.

I've been enjoying DumfriesLizzie reviews as well. Now that I live in central VA I'm not too far from Dumfries, so many of the courses she reviews are of interest to me.

Kegelexcercise is another one to read and follow. I see a diamond in their future (and no, that's not a proposal). If they keep on the current course the only variable on the path to diamond is time.

P.S.- Going on the screen name alone I can't tell if Kegel is a guy or a gal. I'd be interested to hear the story on the genesis of that name...
