Ghost Tree DGC Part 2: A Synopsis

Ghost Tree DGC is inspired by a big break off the rugged Northern California coast. This wave is not for the faint of heart. When northern Pacific storms push in a swell, the massive waves at Ghost Tree demand good decision-making and the rider’s most acute senses.

While not as perilous as its namesake, Ghost Tree DGC promises to offer a stern test of skill and course management. This project is the result of many years of play and study and we couldn’t be happier with it. As the newest addition to the Augusta Disc Golf Park in Augusta, Maine, Ghost Tree contrasts well with the more beginner friendly course (Quarry Run) on the property. At roughly 9500’ from the gold tees and 7800’ from the white tees, Ghost Tree will present a unique and thrilling challenge for both advanced and novice players alike.

Well,

Porcupine Ridge, northside of Augusta, perhaps the best in the state
Sabattus, 20 mins south. Three entire courses there. 2 are great and one is a smaller course that is fully lighted for night play
Dragan Field in Auburn.

Theres another 2 18s in Randolph, 2 18s at Enman Field and 2 18s at Bowdoinham.

A bunch of other courses that I haven't played in the area but are rated at least a 3.0. But those first four are must plays.

Do you know how far Porcupine Ridge, northside of Augusta, perhaps the best in the state from Ghost Tree?

Ghost Tree is on the same property as Quarry Run and there are many other courses within 30 minutes. Augusta what?!?

i'm curious about how you see these courses ranked against each other since it looks a little different from their actually ratings. do you think some of the courses that are on properties with multiple courses get disproportionately higher ratings because of that? porcupine ridge is a solo course while 3 of 4 of the courses with higher ratings than it have multiple courses on site (sabbatus x2, wicked acres).


my sister just moved to Maine so i'm looking forward to exploring all of these courses whenever i get a chance to visit.

Well I think sabattus is fantastic as well.

The rankings aren't always so accurate when they're based on a small number of reviews. If you just look at the trusted reviewers PR and eagle are getting 4.5s while hawk is around 4.0.

But really. Play all of them eventually
