Other Info/Notes:
My primary focus when rating a course is the challenges and variety that a course presents. But another really important consideration when playing a course (that doesn't offer maps online or at the course kiosk) is how easy it is to navigate. A truly enjoyable round can be ruined when having to search for tee pads.

I lack a long distance arm. I do not fret when it comes to a long hole. But courses that require an inordinate amount of power to score well on an inordinate amount of holes are favoring the Power and gold level players. I think it's only fair to say "I'm not a gold level player, and this course may or may not suit most people's game". Therefore my power level tends to favor shorter technical courses.

I like amenities like anybody else, but I'm usually not going to mention those "nice baskets" or tee pads unless they are unique or truly exceptional. If they are hampering the game, I will certainly mention it. All the rest is gravy- if there's a pro shop, camping, or other unusual facilities, they often will bring up the rating.

Finally, the amount that I enjoy the course is a factor. But I still try to step outside myself and ask "if I were a big arm or a RHBH, or a beginner- would I get excited about this course too?"
