What part of that doesn't make it seem like Best of the Best?

and if you can't walk on water, you're almost certainly losing plastic on hole 2

that might be one of the worst overall course experiences on a course with a number of really good, interesting holes. i wish i could redesign that place.

In the early days of this site (and possibly still today for some remote courses), there were some courses where you could essentially reverse the directions to get to the poster's home.
We now have a leader for the worst local directions for a course. This newly listed course in Iceland.

Local Directions: Course is located just before you get into town.

I'll retract my statement if there is only a single road leading into and out of town. In that situation alone, the directions would be useful.

I clicked on the map location and . . . it looks like there is just one road that loops around Iceland, and this course is on it - just before you get into town.

And almost everyone would be coming from Reykjavνk. If anyone ever did come from the other direction, they would know they are in such a small minority that the directions don't apply to them.

So, yeah, this one gets a pass.

The entire review of Old Airport DGC:

"Pros: Lost a red/orange 2007 ace race Discraft Impact. Please DM this account if found. Sentimental value, cash reward."

i bet it gets pulled faster than a 1/2 disc maple hill review.

kind of funny that the same person gave it a longer review (and with actual content) on udisc and a 4.0 rating there.
