Pros: Nice variety of shots required to score low for an experienced player. For a RHBH player you need a big hyzer, big anyhyzer (or forehand), a long arm, and accuracy on approaches. (And there were only five playable holes when I was there.) You shouldn't have to worry much about losing discs. The holes are fairly open, with a couple lined by the woods. Other than the length on a couple of the holes, this would also play well for beginners. They could find the length daunting.

And if you're into basketball, there's a really nice set of courts adjacent to the course.
Cons: On public school property so no bathrooms or additional amenities available.

When I played, holes #1-3 and #9 had been pulled due to extensive expansion and construction at the school.

I didn't really see any drawbacks to the course itself other than, possibly, the proximity of the course to other school and athletic facilities.
Other Thoughts: I'd love to play this course when the other four holes are re-opened. I gave this course an average score even though there were only five playable holes. If the other holes open up, it could be a nice little RI gem.

I drove about 30 minutes to get there after a training seminar for work in MA and it was well worth the drive.
