I think this is a great thought. Sometimes to appreciate what a really good, solid, middle of the road community course is (say, 3.0 or 3.5), you have to know what a bad course looks like. You may feel like rating an 18 hole course at 2.5 because it was nothing special, but eventually realize that that fact that it had good baskets, permanent tees, and actually gets mowed, separates it from a course that actually deserves a 2.0 or 2.5.

I originally reviewed only a few courses, and just recently gave a 2.0 to a course I enjoy playing regularly. 2.0 is "reasonable," right? I think partly I'm starting to hold courses to a higher standard for a couple reasons. 1) I think courses are getting better overall, and 2) just cuz a course is between 2.0 and 2.5 doesn't mean it's not worth playing. Nevertheless, if someone's visiting my area, I definitely wouldn't want them to play that one if it means missing some of the better courses in the area!

Maybe I just haven't played enough truly bad courses yet! My area's fairly solid.

Do you trusted folks have any advice?

Feel free to prerube... No threads jumped out after several minutes of searching.
Holy crap. I am still a verb. lol

I'm kind of a DGCR newbie. You were just a verb until recently, when I found out you were a man/myth/legend noun. But seriously, any good threads on this subject?

for the most part I only look at my past reviews to see where one might fit in when they're lower rated courses. It's harder for me to pick between 1.5 and 2 than it is between 4 and 4.5.

I think it's really helpful to go play courses on both ends of the spectrum especially seeking out courses considered the best so you have a better understanding of where courses might stack up.

At the end of the day just go with your gut feeling and don't second guess it.

Not to mention, some of my best disc golf memories have come on totally craptastic courses.

I mean, who doesn't love a course that you can make a set of goalposts be a mando?
