Very similar to the ones that I've read where they have no pros, the cons section is a 1000 word diatribe, yet the course gets a 4.5.

No. I think I would have to call it the Passive Aggressive reviewer. They have a whole bunch of chit to say but if you ask them what's wrong they'll tell you that everything's ok.

I guess both extremes are people who have made up their mind about a course before they play it and nothing, not even their own experience on the course is going to change their mind.

While it doesn't directly tell you much about the course, Marty's Review of Harry Myers is a funny read:

Here's how you read that review.

1. Drink a bottle of Jack Daniels
2. Steal a car
3. Drive the car into the desert until it runs out of gas
4. Set the car on fire
5. Hitchhike to the west
6. Drink another bottle of Jack Daniels
7. Suckerpunch a bull in the face
8. Get a full body tattoo of Mr. T
9. Rub salt into the new tattoo
10. Kill every ninja in the world

Maybe then, only maybe, will you be able to handle Marty's review.

Can't I just get my CDL and maybe strangle a couple prostitutes? My schedule is really full right now.
