If you don't consider anything a 5 star, why bother making a list ?

Or, by UDisc logic, if every course is a 5 star course, why bother having ratings?

There's actually only 1.5% of the courses within a 5,000 mile radius that round up to a 5 on Udisc...

I've never given out a 5 before. I'm stingy I guess

So OP is more generous than Udisc?

I've been pretty stingy with my 5's as well.

Back in the day, I used to review everything, even if it wasn't quite finished. Boy did I get (expletive) on for calling Iron Hill "Iron Hell" a month after it was in the ground (although in fairness I drove over two hours to go play it). I did go back a few years later and re-reviewed it, upping it to a 4.

After that I decided to wait until I played every course at least twice before reviewing it. I have a few courses that I need to do reviews for here in south Florida, but my 5's are Maple Hill, Tyler State (the old 27 hole layout; I am hoping to play the new 36 this year); Brakewell (Warwick town Park) (I shouldn't have reviewed that one; it was a one time appearance), and Nockamixon (more than likely RIP). No course I have yet to review is 5 worthy.

Understandable, if you follow TimG's instruction (nothing could be improved), but by lumping 5's and 4.5's together, you are not using the full 0-5 scale.

True, but for me it's more that a 5 is "The best of the best". I've got a long way to go to be able to make that claim. I've got a lot of the "best" courses played, but mostly in my region. I feel like I'm pretty good at stating why I didn't give out a perfect 5 rating. At least in my recent reviews. I'd say the closest ones to getting a 5 from me would be Harmony Bends, Idlewild and Wilderness.

Other than no 5, I've used the whole scale though. I think I've only given out one 0 rating. I think.

1-23 on my list are really the courses that I thought were the best of the best from the first time I laid eyes on them until now, no questions asked. 24-31 are a very easy "next group" for me but I could easily call them 4.5 if I wanted to reduce my 5 star percentage from 2% to 1.5%. The #32 spot was the only one that I really deliberated on a lot. Lemon Lake Gold is nice but it is definitely in a 3rd tier, in my opinion. These were the other courses that I gave real consideration to placing in that 32nd spot, which round out my top 40:

Keeley Park (McLeansville, North Carolina)
Warwick Park (Warwick, New York)
IDGC - Jim Warner Memorial (Appling, Georgia)
Trey Texas Ranch - Texas Twist (Mount Vernon, Texas)
Hobbs Farm Park (Carrollton, Georgia)
New London Technology Park (Forest, Virginia)
Blue Ribbon Pines (East Bethel, Minnesota)
The Canyons DGC @ Dellwood Park (Lockport, Illinois)

I would also add that the original Highbridge Gold would easily not just be a 5 star but would be in the top 10. And I imagine that once it's back to a well redesigned and organized 18 hole layout it will easily reclaim that positioning. The original front 9 is in the discussion for best 9 anywhere. When I played it, most of the original back 9 had become not great which is also why it was removed shortly thereafter.

If one were to rank courses by where they fit in to all others they played (assuming a reasonable sample size) what should the distribution be?

Sounds like
90 percentile is a 5
80 percntile is 4.5.............isn't what people want. Also no one gives courses a 0.

Would top 5% get a 5?
Next 10% get a 4.5
Next 12.5% get a 4
Next 12.5% get a 3.5
Next 12.5% get a 3
Next 12.5% get a 2.5
Next 10% get a 2
Next 10% get a 1.5
Next 10% get a 1.0
Last 5% get a 0.5?????
