VERSATILITY: Does the course create a good mix for high and low handicappers? Are better players challenged, while higher handicap players can enjoy the game through the use of shorter teeing areas, alternate routes, obstacle locations and accessible pins?

SHOOTING : Does it test accuracy, finesse, length, and putting without overemphasizing any of these skills?

PATTERN: Is there a good balance? Different lengths? Doglegs right and left? Placement of hazards? Contours and shapes of the greens?

AFTER-SALES: What memories do you have of the course? Do one or two holes stand out as good or bad?

BEAUTY: Do scenic values ​​add to the fun of a game? Trees, shrubs, hills, mounds, flowers, etc.?

MAINTENANCE: How would you rate the course conditions, considering all aspects – tees, greens, fairways, bunkers? Spring, summer, autumn or winter in sight?

ENJOYMENT: What do you think of being over? What about amenities? From arrival to departure, was it a good, bad or indifferent golf experience?
