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