Congrats to MrFrosty whom eclipsed the 350 thumb threshold today. 108 reviews already in just over a year! Having played several courses he's reviewed, I can attest to the helpful nature of his reviews and his consistent review rating method. When i play a course he's rated highly, i know its going to be an awesome course. A big thanks to him for his contributions.

Unfortunately, he's apparently short of the 75 uniques to make gold level TR. If you have not seen one of his reviews I encourage you to visit his page and have a look for yourself. he's reviewed 3 of the DGCR top 25. Flip, Rollin ridge and Moraine.
his dgcr page link is below

Congrats to Wolfhaley whom just crossed the 1000 thumb-up plateau. Just a absolute wealth of knowledge he's contributed to upper mid-west region. He's every bit as worthy of diamond along with the other three wisco reviewers Harr0140, Stardoggy and tallpaul. Not sure if he's going to have the 250 uniques yet, but i would assume he's close. Notable reviews include, Rollin Ridge, Fairfield, Blue Ribbon Pines, Idlewild, The Canyons, Flip, Wilderness and Lincoln Ridge.

Pizza God (1046) and c_a_miller (1268) and both still waiting for their 250th unique voter.

I read a few of Wolfhaley's reviews yesterday when deciding where to drive to play a "new to me" course. Definitely a useful reviewer to calibrate your tastes against as he's played and reviewed a ton of courses. I didn't agree with all of his ratings (not to say that this is a reasonable expectation), but he seems to be consistent in his approach (which matters more in my book). Wolf provides just the right amount of detail in his reviews. You can get a good feel for the course without having to read a novel.

We ended up playing Silver Fox and enjoyed it. I can confirm that concrete tees were indeed added since the review was written. The course has a good balance of challenge and fun. There are lines to hit if you want to score and ways to play relatively safe, but bad shots are punished haard. The multishot holes are all about placement; if you don't land in the fairway, good luck. Despite all that, it wasn't a total beatdown. I'm not sure I'd give it a 4.5, but I definitely wouldn't go below 4.

Thanks wolf, for helping me make the decision on where to play yesterday. You didn't steer me wrong.

I appreciate that count. I prefer to keep my reviews short for a couple reasons. 1) I also don't like reading a novel or books for that matter. 2) I generally like to add to well reviewed courses, things like where hole 1 is located. My preference again, not knocking anyones style of review, that's what make this site what it is. I also played Silver fox this past weekend. I then did Grey, red and grey. Love these courses. I'm glad my review could help. Aced hole 5 on red fox sort of on accident!

Just want to let folks know how I spent a rainy Sunday... updating the Trusted Reviewer Statistics pages (in my signature, below)

Shout outs for 2019:

craigd and Three Putt joined the ranks of the Diamond Trusted Reviewers, and should have been clued in to the secret handshake, and of course the profit sharing (of which neither actually exists)

c_a_miller, Pizza God and wolfhaley are essentially cubic zirconia (Gold with 1000+ thumbs up, but needing more uniques (...hint, hint folks)

DiscinOhio, bobmcnelly, The Katana Kid, mrclc, b-mart, armiller, Doofenshmirtz and Magiken all rolled from Silver up to Gold, while MrFrosty leapfrogged from Bronze to Gold this year

pmay5, Ryal, Schreuds2.0, aclay, GmcAtee, ohtobediscing, MiketheGoalie and mrbro855 all moved up from Bronze to Silver, with Breh and HyooMac achieving both Bronze and Silver this year

Say Hello and Welcome to Bronze Trusted Reviewer status: IsaacIRL, njgrosser, mshelton, lathama, whitefedora, jeremyhilss, Rob Martin, rhatton1, mx23ang, Badger45, DumfriesLizzie, G Bud, LeddZepp8687, puaahunter, DG_Wizard, DutchViking and raynger27.

Hopefully I saw all the changes on this year's rapid review, but mostly want to say to everybody (over 400 Trusted Reviewers now!): keep up the excellent work! I talk up the site every time I chat with a newer player looking for guidance, thanks to all of YOU!

I wonder who goes diamond next?

C A has got to be within a dozen uniques to go. He would be my guess. I think he's been waiting over 15 months now. Wolf and Pizza are probably in the 200 to 225 unique range if i had to guess.

I think Benny, Kenan, Element and Blake all have a good shot to hit 1000 by the end of 2020.

watch out for Mr Frosty too, whom posted the most reviews in 2019 with 117.
