My reviews:
I attempt to write my reviews with the goal of helping other players determine the opportunity cost of playing that course versus other ones in the area. "If I have one afternoon to play a course in this city or town, which one should I play that's right for my skill level and preferences in a course?" That's the question I seek an answer to when reading others' reviews and that's what I attempt to answer in the reviews I write.

~~~

Course ratings:
I believe that the average course rating across the thousands of courses in DGCR should be 2.50. I also believe that there should be more 2.5-rated courses than any other rating, followed by 2.0's and 3.0's, followed by 1.5's and 3.5's, then 1.0's and 4.0's, and then 0.5's and 4.5's. 5.0's and 0.0's should be exceedingly rare. The average course rating for the courses I've played is 2.88, while *my* average rating for those courses is 2.44. In other words, I think there is some rating inflation in DGCR, but not much. There is, in fact, wisdom in crowds.

~~~

The factors I weigh when rating a course:
- Fun factor
- Challenge
- Variety (in distance, types of shots, hole design)
- Use of elevation
- Aesthetics of the course
- Upkeep
- Safety (for other players, pedestrians, nearby cars, property, etc.)
- Course navigation and signage
- Tees
- Baskets
- Bathrooms and other amenities
- Wow factor and memorable signature holes

~~~
