Pros: This is a very different course than you typically see in the New England area. Almost every hole is all about wind and distance management with very little threading through trees. That being said it's nice to be able to really air out your arm and finally justify having that Boss sitting in the back of your bag! Hole 4 has pretty much become the signature hole for this course with its 750 feet of glory, however a few of the back 9 holes are steep enough to warrant some power driving with more placement involved.
Cons: The par is incredibly generous and sometimes misleading. For example, there is a hole on the early back 9 (13?) that is posted as a par 4 with the hole "on the edge of the woods". Without scoping out the pin you would assume it was down the fairway a good ways, but should you power drive, you'll find that you overshot by a long ways and that this par 4 hole is realistically a short 3. You also need to be very careful should you find yourself out of bounds as the OB is choked with poison ivy.
Other Thoughts: So overall a fun time with a few caveats. If you're a local player who doesn't feel like you can really drive like you want to, this place will be your new favorite. For those who crave technical shots and wooded madness, you may want to skip it.

Pros: great new england views
nice elavation changes
a couple technical shots
great bomb (if you can really bomb one) shots
nice place to learn how to thow a long straight disc
signage is good easy to follow
kiosk is very well set up
York Beach is only 20 mins away thats were i started
Cons: missed sign from the road by about 50 ft
maybe something bigger (or brighter)
not enough tech shots got a little bored (maybe sore) with just launching shots
Other Thoughts: again Great New England views If you are at Wells York or Old Orchard beach take some time to go and throw in a nice relaxing cource
