Pros: The course plays through hilly woods with a few smaller open areas. Most of the holes play in and around a small wooded valley with a stream in the bottom. The ob water comes into play on drives and around several of the greens adding some fun risk/reward decisions. Many of these holes also play up and down the side of the valley with some fun downhill shots and tricky uphills along with some tough roll away greens. A few holes play through some more open areas with longer distances and a different feel.

There is a nice mix of hole shapes, you'll need a wide variety of shots to score well. With two pins on each hole that offer some different looks there's even more variety. A few longer holes and some ace run chances mix up the lengths, and some of the silver and gold pins make some good sized distance changes. The signage here is excellent, with silver and gold signs on every hole showing hole layout and length. The tees are in nice shape, and the numerous bridges over the stream are a nice touch. It's always a bonus to have an onsite pro shop, and this is one of the best.
Cons: There are several holes in the middle of the course that play up and down the same hill, and have a bit of a repetitive feel. The last two holes play along and over the driveway and parking lot, and aren't very challenging or interesting, a very disappointing end to a fun round. There are a handful of holes where the silver and gold pins are pretty close, and don't offer much change.
Other Thoughts: The silver layout is relatively beginner friendly, though the technical lines and occasional rough might frustrate true beginners. More experienced players will find some nice challenges and enough variety to keep it interesting. This is a really fun round, and with Maple Hill just down the road it's worth going out of your way to play in this area.

Pros: Beautiful course, interesting holes, elevation, water hazards, choices...
Cons: Signage, Signage, and more Signage. There are wonderful signs at the Tee but by the time you get to the basket you will have no idea where the next tee is.
Other Thoughts: Home of Marshall St. Disc Golf shop which is fantastic.

Pros: Nice people with generous pro shop. Bought what I needed to play. Great layout on varying terrain from woods, water and open meadow.
Seemed to have thought of everything with brooms on tee pads. Well marked layout.
Cons: Little sloppy this day as snow in the shades was melting.
Other Thoughts: First time paying to play. Was worth it.

Pros: The first 16 holes were great. amazing use of elevation, creek, and woods.
Good variety of shots, distances, and fairway widths.
Some of the best signage I have ever seen.
2 baskets on every hole. Discatchers at one layout and chainstars on the other to make it clear.
Great course maintenance The hanging basket on 4 fell down and was fixed by the next morning.
Of course Marshall Street is by far the biggest pro for this course, it is amazing.

Less than a mile from Maple Hill make this a perfect travel destination.

Cons: I can not believe Marshall St. would approve a hole like 18. It is a total danger and 50% of my group refused to finish the round because of the danger of hitting cars, and one of the guys who decided to play it did hit a car in the parking lot.
Hole 17 was a safety hazard also with the basket just a few feet from the road leaving you putting right next to moving vehicles risking damage to vehicles and the chance your disc could get run over. These 2 holes ruined an otherwise spectacular course.
On many holes the 2 baskets locations were not different enough to notice.
Other Thoughts: The cost is well worth the play, but it would be better to play both baskets on 2 other holes than to play 17 and 18. If they were to change 17 and 18 I would rate this course at 4.5, but I can not overlook such a disappointing ending.

Pros: Incredible layout! The course has everything you could want! Short holes, long holes, tightly wooded, open, uphill, downhill, right, left and even unique amenities such as the hanging basket on hole #4 of the gold course!

Two baskets on every hole with very detailed signage for each. signs include hole number, distance, par, diagram of the optimal path, and pictures from the tee, approach, and basket.

Extremely clean, even for early spring. You can tell that they're in the process of spring cleaning, however brush and most of the leaves are in piles out of the way. this makes in much easier to walk through the course and also find your shots.

Virtually no litter! Every tee includes a broom for the teepad, a garbage can, and an ashtray.

Practice basket and small field for upshots next to the pro shop.
Cons: A couple holes (hole #10 and hole #14) have the silver course's basket directly in front of the gold courses. This isn't really a huge problem, but if you're playing the golds is another obstacle to throw around.

Hole # 18 plays right alongside the road coming into the course, has a few small pines directly in front of the teepad. Both baskets are on the other side of the road. Its a short hole, but still kinda dangerous in terms of hitting cars in the parking lot, coming down the road, or hitting other players walking to hole #1.
Other Thoughts: This course met and exceeded all expectations I had. It was such a pleasure playing such a well maintained, and well designed course. I would highly recommend playing this course, and checking out Marshall Street in person. Everyone there is extremely friendly and very knowledgeable. Great course! Can't wait to come back!

Pros: -superb hole maps on each tee box
-really solid pro shop
-well-marked entrance
-lot of hole variety
-good course map on scorecard
-easy to get to off of the highway - great way to break up a drive to NYC or Boston
Cons: -could have used a little more marking between holes
-baskets could use some pink day-glo flags or blazes to make them easier to find (some had orange, but that's a tough color in the fall)

Other Thoughts: -ran into the course designer/owner walking through with his dogs, the guy spent about 5 mins. with me on #10 helping me find an errant drive. we ended up finding it -- what a great guy!
-i'll have to get back here for sure, well worth $$ for the quality of a pay course

Pros: 18 tees with two baskets to each hole. Baskets are in great shape. Mostly wooded course, yet it is fair in the fact that there are no pinball type holes. Unlike Maple Hill, Pyramids doesn't have as much water and no intimidating 200 plus foot water throws. Most of the water at Pyramids is casual and forgiving. A bit of elevation in the back and forth holes but nothing like Maple Hill. Plenty of parking. Marshall Street is the nicest disc golf shop I have ever seen. Locals are very friendly. Not far from eating establishments. The signage is top notch.
Cons: The biggest gripe I have with Pyramids is the entrance road, which borders holes 16, 17, and 18. Any throw on 17 and 18 can hit an unsuspecting car. The parking lot is not safe from a bad throw on 18 either. The entrance road is only wide enough for one car, so take care entering and exiting Pyramids.
Other Thoughts: This course nicely complements Maple Hill and again has the two layouts for players of different skill levels, but here the Silver layout is pretty tough. Play the Pinks for free when you pay for your round at Pyramids.

Pros: great challenging course. beautiful background..plays pretty fast.

it was fun to play
Cons: a few holes were similar.. went up the hill, down the hill, up the hill, down the hill..so it was kind of lose the surprise of what the next hole looked like. but it was only a few holes.

afraid to shoot on the 18th hole cause a car was parked right next to the tee.
Other Thoughts: cost to play but is worth it.

awesome store too!

down the street from maple hill
newton hill 10 minutes away.

Pros: Just a wonderful layout on the course hole 5 is one of the most beautiful that i have ever seen. casual streams run through the course so there is a little bit of water lots of elevation changes makes for a challenging course and multiple baskets is a very nice touch. The signs were well done to make each hole easy to find.
Cons: Pay to pay $6 but very much worth it to play I would like to say the only reason this is a con all of the courses around me are free and I understand that more money means for a lot nicer courses.
Other Thoughts: The pro shop for this course is the Marshall street disc golf store and it is so cool to finally go into it the owner is extremely nice and has a great selection of stuff and if you have never been to an actual pro shop you should go and see this one!

Pros: Very clean (not a ton of brush so you can spend more time playing --- water is not really a factor), well laid out with two baskets per tee... no poison ivy.
Cons: Not free... and hilly -- not always a con, just something to point out.
Other Thoughts: It's great fun to poke around the pro shop.
