Default Bad/Homer Course Reviews

Well, since the OP of that thread got mad about us using his thread for bashing bad reviews, I thought I'd start a new thread for such things...

https://www.dgcoursereview.com/revie...mode=rev#82968

Only person to give this course less than a 3.0. Its not a great course but its definitely not a 1.0 either. Sounds like someone had a bad day... I like this part...

I can't even tell you how many holes I'd throw a beautiful tee shot and WHAM, right into some tree that shouldn't be there. Absolutely horrendous how many random trees are just sticking out or in the way of good tee shots.
FYI, if it hits a tree, it probably wasn't a "beautiful" tee shot...

This is the only review he's done and the only course he's marked as played in the 8+ months he's had an account. Sounds to me like somebody felt butthurt after a bad day and decided it was the course's fault...

Dude. It is ALWAYS the course's fault. Sheesh.

The one defense, if there is one, is that this is the first review written since 10/17. A course could easily go downhill in that time if it's there no upkeep. But, most likely, this is just a bad disc golfer who got pissed he lost a disc and it was the course's fault, not his.

They've added 7 holes, I doubt the course is in ANY sort of disrepair. Dude just has trouble keeping it in the fairway

Just realized I never marked this course as played. Was trying to figure out how long it had been since I was there for a tourney. I think it was either late '15 or very early '16 and the course was a muddy mess because of heavy snow iirc, and the lake had been over its banks for awhile prior to the event after the melt off. Even in that shape, I would have given it at least a 3.0

Also, for the most part, the Columbus DG club is very good at keeping their courses in shape. So, unless they don't actually look after this course, I would expect its in fairly good shape most of the time.

Some of those 7 alphabet holes were never a treat to play recreationally and maybe they never got legit tee pads. You could definitely have a less enjoyable experience as a beginner playing those alpha holes versus the main 18 which are pretty clear of rogue trees in regular lines of play.

I've played maybe twice since 2010 Am World's. I should stop in next time I drive by to look at the letters

Not a Flyers course, but the upkeep is still pretty good normally with the locals. The letter holes do need some work, but that review is trash.

I've occasionally called our trees rude, but never nasty.

That's reserved for the briars.
