Let it go. This has happened so many times in the past and Tim would have deleted it if he thought it deserved it. I thought nobody cared about the top 10.

I don't care about the top ten; I just enjoy be amused by foolishness. "This is one of the worst courses in the world because I couldn't easily get back the disc I threw in the water" is too good to simply let go, at least, not quite yet.

And if I'm foolish for feeling this way, well, just take some amusement from it.

wow sorry for upsetting you all, let me just say that while i was speaking in generalities, the reviews on this site are important to me. see i have a condition where my skin is really thin, and if i end up in a thicket or some adverse terrain i can end up with many cuts and abrasions. usually these obstacles are well stated in the reviews, and id go as far as to say that this website is the number one resource for disc golfers with thin skin! thank you all!!

I have it wishlisted, and have been looking forward to playing it whenever we get over that way and have some time to spare. Now, I will be watching this thread, and be cautious. I would want to visit Marshall St. and play Pyramids, and Newton Hill sounds like a good course for me ("This is an intermediate player's dream."). Ya know what, those two courses are enough, forget Maple Hill.



I used snipping tool on it, and saved it.
You would be making a big mistake if you are that close to Maple Hill and don't play it, trust me.

Maybe so, maybe not. I doubt I have the skill, and especially the arm for it right now. What was the line from one of the Dirty Harry movies, "A man's gotta know his limitations"?Speaking of hypothetical future, where I have regained the strength I had several years ago (before some physical challenges), maybe it would be worth $20. Until then...?

seems a legit review... at least it isn't some local boy love or hate... the guy had a terrible experience and felt he over-paid for that experience. I get it...

that review won't come down as a result...

that being said, I don't see a problem with a $20 pay-to-play... we disc golfers don't subsidize the courses we play very well... I always wonder how private courses stay in with a $5 donation system...

Maple hill is absolutely magnificent. If you love Disc golf and are looking for a wonderful experience play there. Yes they raised their price but you get what you pay for. At Maple hill that means playing one of the best courses in the country that has 4 layouts and is perfectly manicured. Standing up on 1 for golds looking down and wondering if you can clear the pond is akin to Skiing Corbets Couloir at Jackson Hole or Surfing the Bonzai Pipeline(comparatively speaking for different sports). It seems expensive but that is because people are comparing it to other places. Prices are going up, Smugglers notch is now 10 dollars a round as well and they have 36 holes so it essentially costs the same thing.

I'd rather have that than a low traffic course unjustly be highly rated without being able to verify.
Show me a 1/2 star course with a 5 star review, I'm curious to see at least one of these MANY.

So if I get an ace at a course, that automatically makes it a 5 disc review because I had a great experience? And if I lose a disc that makes it a half disc because of my bad experience? What is this disc golf course experience review .com?
