Isn't this what is all about. People can squabble, pontificate and wax poetic, about who belongs in the top ten or not. But, when traveling, I only want a couple reviewers I have read, and know have a similar take and interests in courses. This gives me a nice guide book for my travels. That is the power of this site!

It's likely a cached query for performance reasons. Should show up when it's re-cached.

It wasn't me this time. 😁

Maybe it had something to do with the "fair"ways.

I would just like to echo that 20 reviews isn't a high enough N statistically for a fair representation of top 10 courses (especially when you include the 1 course review only members). I would like to see both this number raised, or for the top 10 to only be based solely off of the Trusted Reviewers.

If I was king of DGCR, I would add 1/10th of a point options from 4.5 to 5.0. Rating courses in the 99th percentile with the current scale doesn't make much sense to me. No course is perfect, but many deserve a rating above 4.5.

With the new scale I would only allow TR's to rate above a set number. Only diamonds can give a 5.0, limit gold to 4.9, silver - 4.8, bronze - 4.7, and 4.6 for the rest of the world.

I still say reviews that are something like 75% or 80 % unhelpful should get tossed.


... I also want to win the lotto.

Something that would temporarily allow some additional courses in the top 10 and top 25 would be temporarily excluding courses that would normally be in the top 25 that are currently unplayable in their rated version (good weather, full foliage) for some reason, typically winter, even if still open for winter play when not snowed in. Other reasons for temporary exclusion might be during redesign like Blueberry currently or like Harmony which was partly flooded for several weeks.
