Augusta CC, in its umpteenth renovation in the last 40 years, rated 70 spots ahead of Palmetto?I happen to have grown up at both and am a member at both so no dog in the fight but....Credibility of Golfweek just left the building. Perhaps they are fans of zoysia?I do hope the current renovation at ACC is successful enough to improve the course enough to justify its current rating.
jeffwarne,Who is doing the latest updating of Augusta Country Club? I haven't played there but a good friend moved to Aiken recently so it's likely I will before too long. Agree that Palmetto is undervalued.
Thanks, Jeff.Yep, agreed undervalued on the GW list.If all goes well playing Ocala next Saturday. I know you're a fan. Is Palatka as good? I may try to squeeze that in, as well.
Ordinal ranking doesn't make sense. Get a data guy to determine the natural breaks in the list and group courses. Ordinal ranking implies the math determines the number 1 course and it ain't so.
Allow raters to fiddle the criteria. One of the biggest problems with set point criteria is sometimes some elements of a design are more important than 10 or whatever points. Allow the rater to assign point value to the criteria. This is one of my main frustrations as a rater. For instance, I may think the terrain or the greens are more than important than X and would rather focus attention on what is important about a design rather than what is less important.
