This is the day of petty, vindictive reviews. Here’s this zero-star for Morley courtesy of Skoddie:
Pros: Pretty
Nice location
Large course.

Cons: Extremely overcrowded, hard to play solo
Rude and intrusive locals

Other Thoughts: I only made it through 4 holes before the locals started screaming at me to ask my gender. Other locals continuously gave unwanted advice on my technique, and one actually reached into my bad without permission and grabbed one of my discs to demonstrate how to hold it. Skip this course, there are more peaceful ones elsewhere.

Just read that Morley review. Dude, sorry you had a bad experience with the locals. I wasn't there, dunno what you experienced, but...

I've played literally thousands of rounds on hundreds of courses. The number of truly rude people I've come across playing DG is relatively low. I typically find more rudeness at Walmart. and I've NEVER had anyone that didn't know me personally reach inside my bag...ever.

I bet the Morley locals are just one, in a long list of things this cat gets buttsore about.

I rate the probability of this reviewer posting on tumblr about the patriarchy and mansplaining as “very high”.

this person's politics and identity aside, they must have been very uncomfortable and possibly feeling threatened. it sucks they had to go through that. but that could have happened on any busy course. as much as i don't care for Morley, i don't see why it's Morley's fault.

also, now that i think about it, it's probably best that it was on a super busy course like Morley. what if you were out in the woods and some creepy dudes did that to you? i'd be even more intimidated.

"Järva deserves its place among the greatest tracks in our game. In many ways it echoes the formidable strengths of its top-10 peers. The creative fairways of Rollin Ridge. Elegant, natural tranquility reminiscent of Harmon Hills. Greens so technical they'd make Flip City blush. And yet, Järva summons an aura uniquely its own. Each hole feels simultaneously familiar yet exotic, like an old romance rekindled after years apart. The design embraces the land rather rather than fighting it; tracing its contours with a steady, delicate hand. This intoxicating blend of trees and grass and rock tickles the heart as much as the mind."

So many good lines from mrclc's new Jarva review! "...like an old romance rekindled after years apart" is not something I ever expected to hear about disc golf

This is from a zero-rating review for Boom Park in Muskegon, MI. I suspect the review will be pulled before long because the review didn't even play the course. This is the epitome of why everyone should not review courses.

Cons: The course was unplayable due to flooding. Almost all baskets were half underwater.
Other Thoughts: Not sure if the course is always unplayable now, but there was no way anyone was playing on it when I went. The parking lot was also flooded do no parking.

5st review of a 3.0 average course...

Quote:
Pros: Advanced course was amazing lines, really pretty views and nice baskets.
Umm...

Quote:
Description: Beginner-friendly course on and around abandoned soccer fields. Because the heart of the course is made up of those soccer fields the course is mostly wide open,
Either this course has had some major work done to it, or this guy is throwing 100ft noobhyzers...



Btw, do you go along the wrong side of the fairway when you do a driveby review of a Euro course?...

The 5st review is always the best.

"In publishing and graphic design, lorem ipsum is a placeholder text commonly used to demonstrate the visual form of a document or a typeface without relying on meaningful content."

Lorem ipsum (Wikipedia)

Perhaps he inserted the placeholder and forgot to cut and paste in his course review?
