This is a blog designed to review and rate the various golf courses I’ve played. It is my hope that this site will allow me to savor my golfing memories, while being able to help others looking for courses! If you have any feedback, constructive criticism, or want to tee it up with me, I’d love to hear from you in the comments or via e-mail!

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 price for rankings, I do review value.

Conditioning Categories:

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

Other Factors

-Facilities – Driving range, practice green, clubhouse

-Pace of Play

-Food and Drink

-Vibe – Friendliness of employees, overall feel
