If a public course is closed by permit, I think that part should be emphasized. The first thing the interloper will say is, "You can't close the course! It's a public park!"

If you can respond,...

Pace of play is one thing. I wish the 30-second rule were enforced. But more generally it's the total time commitment. Do we need to have an hour between rounds? Bring a sandwich and let's get going...

December 2013. I don't meant at restaurants, I mean at liquor stores, grocery stores, etc. I really just wanted a bomber of something good for the evenings when I was in my hotel writing my reviews...

I was going to mention Worcester, MA, and I'm glad there is some data to back it up. Within 30 minutes you have Maple Hill, Pyramids, both Devens courses, Barre Falls, Buffumville, Hyland, and...

Seymour Smith in Omaha is the busiest course I've ever played. I will play it in the winter because it chases away all the people who think you can only play a round shirtless, but any other time of...

I paid whatever Selah charges for play and for carts. I don't remember the price because the value was so much higher than what they charged. For an excellent course, I'd pay $40 per round. For a...

I love this site for turning me onto courses I'd never heard of. This one looks intriguing. Beautiful, western rugged topography and some cool pin positions. I was 90 miles from here in ND last...

I've driven by Franklin Park and wondered if there is space somewhere in there for a course.

That said, check out the NEFA forums. I don't think you're the first to consider a course in Boston,...

I was at 34 courses when this thread was posted and am up to 114 now. Somehow I've played way more courses in the last 3 years than in the first 3 years of playing.

For what it's worth, the more robust a public transportation system, the higher the population density (generally speaking), which tends to mean less available space for disc golf. Again, generally...

-I'm pretty impressed with the ass whupping this guy laid down in the tournament. He beat the 3rd place guy by 35 strokes. Can you imagine finishing that high in a tournament and...

Playing in winter has its advantages. It's never crowded. I love the solitude. And the snow absorbs all the sound, making it silent except for your footsteps, your breath, and the chains with their...

I agree. It's a different layout of the same course. Maple Hill's golds bear no resemblance to the red configuration and in some places use completely different parts of the property. They aren't...

On this note, I'm not sure why it is labeled as temporary. The tee pads and baskets for the gold course are there year round. I was confused by this when I did my review as well.

I understand that...

I'm the one with 106 reviews who gave it a 4.5. It is the most fun course I have played (not the best overall, but highest for pure fun factor).

I agree that it's annoying to see a rash of reviews...

I think asking someone to play all the tees is a tough ask. I've played Maple Hill more than a dozen times and I've never played the golds. If I'm traveling I don't necessarily try to play all the...

Bucksnort, Phantom Falls, and Magic Meadows are all somewhere around $20, and all are worth it. If you're traveling over 1000 miles to get there, don't try to save money on the courses. :) They're...

Intros. I don't want an intro that is any longer than three seconds. I really hate long segments trying to set the scene or provide unnecessary text. Just get me into the action.

The 100' range for me. I don't have anything consistent from that range, and it's a problem. I've started working on my forehand more because I like being able to stand and face the target. But I...

Sounds like a good time. I look forward to reading your reviews.

One piece of advice: you may want to skip Newton Hill and hit Devens on the way to Maine. It's pretty close to 495 and has two...
