At least this way, we can see the "truth" and judge for ourselves.


Just make sure you mention how bad the cow pattie situation is in the course conditions

Does anyone have any insight as to why Järva, apparently a wet dream of a course (pardon my french), has only 6 out of 22 reviews receiving more up-votes than down-votes? It seems like there's a dedicated group of people intent on down-voting most reviews, especially recent ones. Is this some sort of local-troll effort to dissuade people from going there so they can install their cemetery? Or to put it another way, why are there so many short uninformative reviews? Another local grass-roots effort from the other side?

Just curious, I doubt I'll ever make it over there to play it.

Just curious, I doubt I'll ever make it over there to play it.

when the city announced they were closing the course there was a large, grassroots movement by the locals to bring attention to the course. a petition was going around for awhile and many people (mostly Swedes?) began posting reviews, presumably to raise the rating and get it in the top 10 so they could show the city how popular the course is.

i think a lot of people on here didn't appreciate the brevity of the reviews and gave a lot of thumbs down. it was definitely a marketing campaign and they are drive-by reviews but in this case i don't have a problem with it. it's for a good cause.


i have been seriously considering planning a quick trip just to play Jarva since i heard the news but it's just not in the budget. getting to soon-to-be-RIP'ed courses has become a hobby for me but it's a whole lot easier when it's just a state or two away.

See King Park, Pendleton for the reason local, biased reviews get a bevy of thumb down votes.

That's because it was too clean and friendly for it's own good. thought it went extinct? at least someone mentioned that it was going to be.
