Hackers Central 2011 Top Courses List: Well Done!

I came across a top courses list by Hackers Central today that I thought was very well done, and am compelled to share it with you all:

Hackers Central 2011 Wisconsin Winners

This list is contrived by the efforts of 100 volunteers scoring each course on 60 separate facets, which relate to the following categories: Hospitality (weighted 18%), playability (23%), facilities (18%), conditions (23%), and value (18%).

Of the top 20 courses in the state of Wisconsin [for hackers or players with an 18-plus handicap], I thought it was interesting to extrapolate their top courses with relation to each major category:

Conditions:
1. Castle Course at Northern Bay – 9.15 (out of 10 possible points)
2. Lawsonia, Links Course – 9.09
3. Washington County – 9.04
4. Grand Geneva, Highlands Course – 9.01
5. Lawsonia, Woodlands Course – 8.98

Hospitality:
1. Castle Course at Northern Bay – 9.35
2. Washington County – 9.30
3. Lawsonia, Links Course – 9.02
4. Trappers Turn – 8.81
5. Trempealeau Mountain – 8.72

Playability:
1. The Bull at Pinehurst Farms – 8.94
2. Grand Geneva, Highlands Course – 8.92
3. Grand Geneva, Brute Course – 8.82
4. Geneva National, Player Course – 8.81
4. Trappers Turn – 8.80

Facilities:
1. Grand Geneva, Brute Course – 9.41
2. Washington County – 9.27
3. Geneva National, Player Course – 9.21
4. Lawsonia, Links Course – 9.2
5. Grand Geneva, Highlands Course – 9.18

Value:
1. Whispering Springs – 9.59
2. Trempealeau Mountain – 9.52
3. Kettle Hills, Ponds/Woods Course – 9.41
4. Rock River Hills – 9.22
5. Wild Ridge, Championship Course – 9.16

Total Score:
1. Washington County – 971 (out of 1000 possible points)
2. Castle Course at Northern Bay – 961
3. Lawsonia, Links Course – 945
4. Whispering Springs – 941
5. Trappers Turn – 924

Keep in mind, of course, that there may be courses that rate higher on these individual scales that did not make the final top 20 list.

Bravo, Hackers Central. Well done!
