Sounds like they took it personally. I'll admit though on courses that are near and dear to me I'm a little biased, but that usually results in a down-vote or two on my review that I can't get mad at. That said, I can't say I've ever been compelled to write a rebuttal haha. We should make a sister-site called DGCourseDebate.com

Yeah quite personally by the sounds of it. Unless they're the course designer I really have no idea why anyone would make it so personal.

What I find amusing is how having discs being thrown at people is no big deal according to that review. Just look at the map and anyone can see all the rediculous safety hazards there are. Maybe I was a little sensitive to the when I played there because I had my 9 year old niece with me. On the other hand, this course was touted as being family friendly so there's that.

Lmao, your review was the only one I read yesterday, and thought wow this place must stink. Funny that this happened now.

Just checked the map, and WOW this course probably shouldn't exist, for the good of discers and non discers alike. Because both groups of people could end up with a 14 speed driver to the head, and a then a big hit to the reputation and livelyhood of the sport...

Wow I'm already up to 3 helpful and 4 not lol. - that has to be a record for me. I'm sure everyone who thumbed down actually found the review to be truly not helpful as opposed to thumbing it down because they disagreed with it. And out of those four indicating The review was "not helpful" how many have pm'ed me to tell me how my review could have been more helpful? You guessed it...ZERO! :/

Maybe 20-30 for the entire park including the baseball fields. But the section used by disc golf
Is probably only 6 or so acres. But that's a bit of a wild guess.

Did they remove the review you are talking about? The most recent one doesnt seem to really refute anything in your review.

1. That review is a 3.0. Mine is a 1.0.

2. It was 4 years since a review had been done until mine showed up. And then one day later this one shows up. Coincidence? I doubt it.

3. The last line to me says it best, "If you pay attention to other golfers, you shouldn't have any issues with "overlapping" baskets." Which is contrary to my rather biggest and clearly most significant con.

4. Some of the pros in that review are: "More ace runs than any other course I've played
-Good variety of tight and open holes"

Which also is clearly contrary to my cons.

It's a rebuttal review plain and simple.

The very last sentence is what makes it a rebuttal, plus it being written pretty much immediately after Dave's review. Foul for goaltending?
