How are Rankings Determined

*Cost Effectiveness - Not so much the green fee, but we take into account what you get for your money.  Is the course worth what it charges?  Do range balls come with the green fee?, are two questions that we ask.

*Condition of Greens - Simple rating here.  How are the greens?  Fast, slow, what condition are they usually in.  Are they beat up?  Do balls roll true on them?

*Layout - Do you have to yell fore if your ball is just off the fairway.  Is there sand, water, car paths, is it a picturesque course.  What surrounds the course, and how isolated is the course are some of the questions asked for this topic.

*Amenities - So what do you get at this course.  How many holes at the course, do carts have gps, do you get tees and ball marks is there a cart girl, ranger, is the course easy to get to, and is water available are some of the questions asked here.

*Course Condition - Are fairways cut, how's the rough, is there sand in the trap, has the course been properly maintained is what we look for here.

*Practice Facility - Is there a driving range, if so, are there enough slots to accommodate everyone, how large is the putting green, how many putting greens are there, is there room for chipping, sand practice, etc.

*Clubhouse - how big is the clubhouse, do they serve alcohol, how is parking, how "dressed" up is the clubhouse

*Courses that I haven't played, or haven't played in a few years.  These courses are yet to be ranked/rated.
