Yea you start splitting hairs at some point, but I'd figure a 4.0 is a course that definitely hits the navigation and challenge marks - we're talking awesome signage, a nice flow (doesn't necessarily have to play a loop), and has great variety in distance and shots needed. I don't throw many tomahawks and never throw rollers really, but I do like giving my FH a good workout. Even w/o all the bells and whistles, the total DG experience there. anything over that would be if it's also aesthetically pleasing and has just, all the amenities you could want. Restrooms help too sometimes. A reasonable fee isn't a problem either, but the key word is reasonable. Don't charge me $10+ for a place that isn't Blow-My-Socks-Off awesome or doesn't have basic amenities like a restroom or water fountain. I'm also just thinking out loud here.

anyone else feel like that or... I mean, a course getting a 4.0 is a really great score... the last two pegs up (4.5 and 5.0) stop making as much sense to me... I also feel like some 5.0 scores are homerisms (home boy over-rated)... not all, but enough

I just feel like a 5.0 course is extremely rare and that 4.0 and 4.5 really cover it well enough... just thinking out loud here
The way I see it, anything I'd rate 4.0 or better should be "destination worthy" and capable of anchoring a DG road trip.
Working some decent to good courses in among the excellent courses is fine... but good courses aren't the reason I'm driving for hours. They just provide additional variety and fun way to break up the drive. When I'm travelling to play DG, I'm seeking excellence, not merely good.

Anyone who'd do that ought to have a spike driven through their _ head.

With the exception of courses missing altogether or being just impossible or too life threatening to play for whatever reason - which pretty much only rules out MAYBE 1% of courses...I agree with this statement. If you can't be bothered to play it at least once don't bother reviewing it.

I followed my son Alec around all week at AM Worlds. I did not actually throw a disc at west lake but I can tell you about every hole from long and short tees. I've considered marking it as played. Would you mark it as played?

No, because I didn't physically play it.

Not sure why people feel they need to pad their stats on something like this.

Did you play the course, or did you walk it? If you played it, mark it as played. If not, you wouldn't be the first to lie about playing a course.
