I know, right? I gotta get back over there! If it wasn't for that one lame review, this course would beat out Rollin Ridge for the highest rated course in Wisconsin.

Seriously, though, if this site was "How Nice a Job of Getting a Course in the Ground Review" I might give it a 5. But, they had to settle for a less-desirable location, it's only 9 holes, and it's still crunchy-new.

Default Valkyrie

From the Valkyrie Kid's recent review of Indian Hills:
"I'd probably be forever gazing at other, more attractive courses. Gees, this sounds much like many of my longtime married friends. Not me, of course! I've never once had the inclination to even glance at another woman."

Pros: Champion level course requires every throw in the bag.
great mix of par 3s, 4s, and 5s
multiple pads, baskets, lines, opportunities. and nices.
beautiful land, features, and variety!

Challenging, well thought out, disc golfers course.

When you read a useless review (at least when I do), I feel compelled to scroll down to find good reviews. I invariaby end up giving out a few 's to other reviewers... which I wouldn't necessarily have done if not for the review.


I bet Steve gets way more 's than you might expect for a review of a "meh" niner, specifically because that 5.0 routed a bunch of traffic his way. Just remember to use the sort by "Most Helpful" option, and the cream rises to the top!

I learned something new today! I never realized "Most Helpful" was choice when sorting reviews! I never realized I could sort by all those other options in the drop down box either. Mostly because I always check the "Only Trusted Reviewer" box which quickly gets rid of all the home boys and drive-bys. The default sort by most recent worked fine since reviews in 2018 usually offer more to me than 2011 reviews, especially issues like signs and navigation. However, it is nice to realize I have some more sorting tools!

How does the search option "Current Mix" sort the review data?

I appears that sorts reviews by a chronological mix of first review and last update to a review. That must be new to the drop down, I don't recall seeing it until just now. Considering I update reviews locally quite often, I noticed that my review jumps to the top of the list when using this selection.

Review of Lake Hiawatha https://www.dgcoursereview.com/revie...mode=rev#79480

"and nices" what in the world is that? Does that mean Joe will nice my shot off the tee and then the disc will alter its trajectory and instantly hit a tree? How is that a Pro? perhaps this is a pro for Joe... momentarily. Whom will be chuckling until I nice him on his upcoming tee shot.

wellsbranch review of terrible Mundy Park

TEES - Pouring 3 foot by 6 foot concrete pads is a waste of concrete. Perhaps this was a way to add difficulty.

LACK OF CHALLENGE - This place will be a scoring blood bath for any Advanced player mistakenly venturing here.

SPACING - Really really bad. On tee (5) you can see two baskets, but I had two discs in my hand, One for each of them.

Yup... that's the entire review. A course that in 11 previous reviews, has 8 at 4.5 or higher... Schmucko gives it a 1.5 lol.

I think we need someone to look into that IP address and user profile... Three reviews worth of jibberish, all for courses with Panther in the name.

Could this be a bot?
