Other Info/Notes:
I appreciated DGCR's ratings and reviews long before I started taking the time to give back to DGCR. I'm thankful to so many trusted reviewers (and the admins) who have made this website such a useful and fun disc golf resource. Folks can quibble over ratings and "top courses," but the rating system is robust and informative.

Overall, I try to keep my "intra-reviewer integrity" intact. In other words, if I rank two courses the same, you should be able to assume that I enjoy them about the same and consider them similar quality, even if they're in different places, or one is 9 holes, or they're quite different for other reasons. The quality of the golf is generally more important in my ratings than the quality of amenities or even navigation. I also love nature, so I tend to enjoy courses more in a beautiful and natural setting. Things like multiple tees or hole configurations are not inherently superior to a single set of tees or pin locations, as long as that single set of tees/pins is of adequate quality.

I believe every course is worth playing once, but I haven't made it a goal to review every course I play. I generally review courses not to give them a number but because I have something to say. I prefer to have played the course multiple times, in different conditions or seasons, but I have become more comfortable reviewing after just one play. My ratings might seem a little "top heavy" since I find good courses more interesting and easier to talk about.

I don't give courses 4.5 or 5 easily, so it's safe to say I consider those special. Branson Trails Blue is my personal favorite.

My favorites in the Oklahoma City area: 1) Dolese Youth Park - East; 2) Noble DGC; 3) Griffin Park; 4) N.E. Lions Park

Some noteworthy Florida courses: T2 at Bill Frederick Park (Orlando), Picnic Island (Tampa), and Cliff Stephens and N.E. Coachman (Clearwater) were all fun and challenging. Palmetto Bay Village Center, south of Miami, was an underrated course that I played often, and which I hope more DGCRers will enjoy

Feel free to message me to let me know what I'm doing right and how I can get better!
