Gold level trusted reviewer
- Mar 11, 2008
That's another well worded answer and I agree. I'm a Pink level player so I'm at the top of the Red scale but may be a low level White level. Gold level courses like Jackson at the IDGC are no fun for me because they are so far above my skill level. I also get bored at Green level courses for being not challenging enough for me, but they are also not designed for my skill level. Is the Gold level course inherently better than the lower skill level course?
Of course, there's a limit to how much over your head a course can be before it becomes too much, and that will vary for everyone. But I suspect the fun range extends higher above our skill level, than below it. So those tougher courses are going to appeal to more players -- at least, more of the type of players who do most of the reviews.
