If you have an opinion, someone will disagree with you. That’s the nature of things. To date, I’ve not had one person contact me and say they disagree with a review/ranking.
I know how it happened, but that will be of scant consolation to Courtown. When I sent my initial proposal to the publisher it contained reviews for 22 golf courses. Courtown was one of these, and these courses formed the template on which I would review/score all courses. But I never corrected Courtown’s scores before handing in the final manuscript.

Now, in some cases, if I was given the chance again, I might change the score one point up or down, but Courtown deserves a big shift.
My book score was 71. It should be 78, of which Golf Experience accounts for 16. That’s a big shift and I apologise to Courtown. I will do my best to make it up to you.
