Review By: Chris Main
Played: 9  Reviewed: 5  Exp: 1.2 Years
Pros: Initial field holes (1-4), while wide open, were not slam dunks due to winds. From 5 on were in woods. Tree obstacles were fair, and the distances on the short side...so birdy opportunities aplenty.
Cons: Pads as mentioned are smallish. No signage at tees.
Other Thoughts: Full on Winter round, so lines and ground play were seasonal. Seemed like doglegs were even # for left and right, as a flicker had to brake out the rollers. Good time.

Pros:
Easy to navigate.
Cons:
Concrete teepads quite short, some supplemented with rubber mats that don't quite abut the back edge.
Other Thoughts:
Other than the first four holes, which play back-n-forth across gently-sloping open space, number-9, and basket-18, the bulk of the course is located in a dense patch of small/mid-sized trees growing on a fairly flat piece of land. While the average hole length is just under 250', most of the wooded holes, ignoring quite long 17 & 18, average 220' in length, so the emphasis is on control, vice distance, when playing these holes.

For the wooded holes, an even blend of left/right/no-turning shots are needed from the tee. Only a few fairways could be described as somewhat tight - most are quite wide. In fact, a few of the "wooded" holes are merely framed by the trees running along the sides and back of the generous fairways.

Other than playing number-9, with the basket only 230' and to the left - the basket way in the distance is number-18 - the course has a natural flow and is simple to navigate.

Solid course which avoids any extremes - not long, not tight, not strenuous.

Pros: This course is a cool little disc golf complex. It has nice tee pads and baskets. Cool little pro shop with some rental discs for newbies. Good mix of holes with some tight fairways which require lots of touch and placement. I took a first timer here and he was able to get a few pars, while still providing a fun challenge to a more experienced player.
Cons: After the first 4 holes I almost quit. They are unimaginative open field holes and I thought if the whole course is like this it would not be worth playing. The course enters the woods after that and becomes more fun and charming so I am glad I stuck it out. There are nothing wrong with the field holes in themselves, but back to back like that at the beginning, while being a nice opportunity to warm up, were not a good introduction to an otherwise very nice course. It would be nice if they were in the middle of the round to break up some of the time spent in the woods.

A little lacking in tee signs. They do have the distance and doglegs of the hole written on the tee pads but on the blind holes this was not enough to feel confident throwing.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a fun course to play. It is a little short but very challenging. It seems there is a nice disc golf community in the area and I can imagine the leagues and doubles nights are fun.
If you are on your game you can post a very low score here, but if you are not hitting your lines the course will punish you.
This was a fun place to stop on my way through Maine and would definitely play it again.

Pros: Good hole variety. There are 5 field holes and 13 wooded holes. Most holes are under 250 feet and can be deuced if you have enough control. The fairways have a very nice flow to them, with trees in all the right places to make each shot different from the last.

The woods holes require a complete arsenal of shots. You'll need hyzers, annies, straights, and a solid tomahawk comes in handy on a hole or two. Many holes present mulitple lines, some for beginners and some for seasoned pros. Exciting to play with multiple ace runs, although blowing past the basket makes for a tough birdie save.

The cement tee pads on every hole are in great shape and are appropriately sized for the hole. There is a trash bin and bottle bin on every hole. Most people make use of the trash/bottle bins so the course is very clean. Stocked club house with friendly owner.
Cons: No tee signs, but it doesn't hinder the experience. There are only a few holes where you can't see the basket from the tee. A 50' walk up the fairway will reveal the hidden baskets. The general fairway shape and distances are marked on the front edge of every cement tee.
Other Thoughts: Having some open field rips is very nice. If you feel frustrated after holes 17 and 18 (the longest holes, both in the woods), throw some bombs in the field when you emerge from the woods.

Definitely check out this course, only 10min from I-95.
