About

This is a page designed to review and rate the various golf courses I’ve played. It is my hope that this site will allow me to savor and recollect on my golfing memories, while being able to help others looking for courses!

What makes a golf course “good“?

I review courses and take into account conditioning, design, history, and various other factors like amenities, facilities, and vibe. While I don’t take into account pricing for rankings, I do review value and might subconsciously hold biases while reviewing some courses.

Conditioning 

1-3 – very poor upkeep. Characterized by shaggy greens, burned out fairway, torn up teeboxes, and poor bunkers.

4-7 – course is playable, but not every hole will be in pristine shape. Course may be a bit rugged around the edges.

8-10 – course is in immaculate shape. Green, well-kept fairways, fast greens, and beautiful tee boxes and bunkers are featured on these courses.

Design & History

As a golf history buff, I might put a little more value in history than others. If a course has hosted prestigious tournament or been designed by a famous architect, it will undoubtedly be ranked higher on my list.

Other Factors

Facilities – Driving range, putting green, clubhouse

Pace of Play

Availability of Drinks

Vibe – Friendliness of employees, overall feel
