New Course Review Site

Postby timg » Thu May 24, 2007 6:19 am

Hey guys,

I just launched my new site last night and am trying to spread the word. It's a course review site where you can also track courses you've played, favorite courses, etc.

The url is www.dgcoursereview.com .

If you get some time, check it out and even add some courses or reviews while you're there :)

(Hopefully I'm not out of line posting this here and if I am, I apologize. I thought my site was a nice complement to DGR rather than competition since you don't have course reviews here).

Thanks guys!

- Tim

I don't think you're stepping on any toes by posting about your site here, I know there had been talk of making a sister site to DGR about courses, but nobody got motivated enough to do it.

Anyway though, the site looks good so far! I like the fact that its casual reviews rather than the structured ratings like the PDGA does. Those definitely have their place, but it's nice to just see how people feel about a course without having to rate every specific detail. Definitely need to get some more coursed entered into there, but you've got some good potential going!

Oh, one thing I noticed that would make the site slightly more user friendly is that for searching for a course, it'd be nice if the "Country" setting just defaulted to U.S. It's kind of annoying to have to click that each time you want to search a state. Just my 2 cents.

Tim,

Thanks for the tip.. I'll make the change. Also, if you sign up you can add any course you'd like. Members can also update the course information, etc. hopefully keeping everything current :)

I think you need to register first. I just did, and when I logged in there was an extra option at the top, between "Forums" and "Edit Profile".

What Tim just said.

You won't see the additional options on the forum page since I have no way of telling from the forum page if someone is logged into the main site... yet :)

Jones,

Make sure you're logged in to the regular site (forums and site have separate logins). After that you should see the Add Course option in the main menu.

Sorry to bring this topic back from the dead but I thought I'd just update everyone on the site. The course directory on the site has been completed so DGCR has pictures, maps, scorecards, etc. for a ton of courses and more importantly, pretty accurate lat/lon for over 2400 courses. I spent a ton of time looking up course information, browsing maps, etc. to put it all together. Needless to say, I had a lot of time on my hands!

There are also a ton of new features since I made the first post in this thread like browsing course maps via a google maps interface, a listing of recent course updates, near by courses, a way to rate reviews (ie. "Did you find this review helpful?"), and a more advanced course browser to name a few. I also have a ton of plans for future improvements that I can finally get to.

If you haven't had a chance to stop by the site, please feel free to check it out. Feel free to tell your friends about it too ;)

DGCR

Postby Lowe » Mon Dec 03, 2007 10:33 am

DGCR is a fantastic site and Tim has done a mind boggling amount of work on it. I've been so glad to have the site to contribute some course reviews. I think this sit is poised to become the Go-to site when people want to know about courses.

Disc Golf Course Review new features

Postby Lowe » Wed Mar 26, 2008 5:14 am

There are tons of new features on DGCR. The map with every DG course is a fantastic resource. Now you can also track your scores, events, and even discs to trade. You should check it out.

P.S.- My reviews are under the name "Olorin"
