It's at the beach. That always seems to bump up the reviews ratings.

Hey, we aren't all blessed with steady hands and good cameras, much less the presence of mind to actually think to photograph AND throw.

Frontrangehikers review of Bailey DGC in Colorado.

Also there are apparently no leash laws at this course as I watched a dog pick up my disc and bolt, by the time I caught up to the dog and owner my disc had been lost somewhere
wow that sucks.

especially on a course like Bailey!

he must really hate loosing discs. cuz natural tees and signs that apparently weren't big and obvious enough for him are a weak argument for a 2.0 rating

Swampy Hollow...0 rating given by a diamond reviewer...

Pros: There appear to be 9 baskets here. That's all I got on the pros for this course.

I never gave my local course the good one a 5, it got a 4.5 from me. The Lack of Elevation and openess on some of the original 9 holes can make the course play boring.

The other local course got 3.5. This is due to having to walk under a bridge to get to the seldom played 6-10, the fact some holes are so easy they are a 2 for better players. I may do a review when in the future, holes 6-9 get taken out of the course due to a Water Treatment plant that gets put in as well as a much needed new bridge taking out the easy hole 6. I hope the city finds a new place to put the Water Treatment plant, a lot of people do not want the plant in the area the city Has decided to put the Water Treatment plant.

Comment wasn't about you. It was in response to this comment from one person's review of his new hometown 9-holer, "A great 9-holer can rival a good 18-holer in my book. End of discussion." A non-local TR just reviewed said course last week and gave it a 2.0.

No but the general observation joke about locals giving a course 5 stars when only 1%-3% give a 5 star. It is odd that Local do that, even if they have played really nice courses else wear in the country, You can go back in and change your review if the local course was your first review. However some are lucky to have a 5 star or nearly 5 star course near them.

Sisyphus is a treasure:

"But wait, give it a second, because hole 2 is beautiful: it crosses the stream (ignore Egon's important safety tip) to a green cut nicely into the wall of woods."
