Great post Chuck, absolutely nothing regarding the amazing design and courses themselves. You know you did a freaking great job.

If you separate the courses from the rest of the complex then it's worth the ratings. The rest not so much. I think he is in over his head on upkeep. Not sure what kind of revenue the place brings in but if he wants to last long the non course maintenance needs to get better. I would pay a little more to stay in a cleaner place.

I think it is a pretty good course. One of the better ones in KC at least. Elevation and woods are always fun to play in.

Waterworks is a nice example of old school par 3 design with only one sort of par 4 (#6). Otherwise, it's on the weaker side as an example of a tournament worthy course for the highest levels where more par 4s and 5s are now expected.

I would be curious to see how this list changes at different "minimum review" qualifications. 15 seems like it's just not quite enough.
I'm sorry that the middle of my sentence interrupted the beginning of yours.

Hey Scott, the main page linked in the first post is for min 15 reviews ever.

On that page there is a tab for "2012 only" for which the list is 10 reviews in 2012.

Finally, on the main DGCR home page, the "top courses" requires a minimum of 20 reviews ever. So if you think 15 ever is too few, that may suit your liking a bit more.

Beyond finally, you can use the Browse Courses to set the min reviews anywhere up to 50.

Even at 20 reviews, only a small-ish (12-15%) percentage of courses qualify.

I personally loved the courses at High Bridge. I was impressed with the quality of the par 4s and 5s on the Gold Course and enjoyed the visual challenges on Granite's open holes. All of the courses have variety - definitely worth the trip up.

You can use carts on Gold and Granite only. It's $10.00 a day to play and I think the carts were $15.00 for the day. (although we paid once and used them for a couple days, 2 rounds on Gold and one round on Granite) The carts were pretty beat up and one didn't have reverse, but it sure did help on our legs as we played 5 straight days there.
