Pros: Really fun course winding through the woods and mountains. This course really feels like what disc golf is all about. Challenging, but not over the top. Plenty of hazards, but most of the time discs are findable.
Cons: Be ready for a hike.
Other Thoughts: Great day trip for a Umass student

Pros: Great lay out, All of this course is in the woods or with narrow lanes. Nothing is imposable on this course but nothing is easy either. The holes are clearly marked with a good show of where the basket is. The makers thought ahead and if you misplace a throw down a steep incline, there is a little rope to help you back on to the course.
Cons: The area is a little buggy, black fly's and mosquito's, so bring some off or bug spray. (the "badgers" bug blam is great!)
Other Thoughts: If you have time go to the pro shop down the street, make sure to call first! Phone number is there at the board at the course! The people are great and prices are average, but the Hot stamps on the discs are great looking! Add one to your bag and show the world! Another cool note, at each Tee station there are logs to sit on and some one had been pounding beer bottle caps into them, They look great and add awesome character to the course!

Pros: The terrain is awsome. The holes tend to be on the short side with more finess needed to scoot in for par. The holes are almost all doglegged and require a couple throws in your arsenal to finish well. Challenging and very enjoyable.
Cons: It felt much like playing the back nine on Tully. The trees tend to be a bit dense at times. Some very trying, needle threading drives. No holes to open up the distance drives. Even the longer wholes require finess.
Other Thoughts: Obviously work is continuing to be done but I think the wholes could be brushed out a little more. Played three times with 63, 62, and 62 for scores. I'll go back.

Pros: -Location is perfect for a dgc
-Not too many bugs (bring bug spray though)
-Signs pointing to next tee helpful (its not confusing though)
-Less trees than most courses in new england
-Holes weren't "hair-pulling"
-Forced you to use different shots while still being excellently enjoyable!! :)
Cons: ..............................................I did run out of gas on the way home..........
Other Thoughts: I will be back many times to play this course! It's the best of the best and people of western Mass should be lucky that they have Highlands of Conway!

Pros: very large course- exclusive to disc golfers, few holes have any chance of "crossing" onto another hole, varied terrain and elevations, some great views in summer and fall, bring the camera, also there is no water- casual or otherwise
Cons: signs could be better, a few holes could use a little trim, big drivers won't be able to really uncork here-for the most part and could we move the parking lot to avoid the hike up the first hill?!
Other Thoughts: $5 per round or $8 per day fee is easy to justify, interesting course, forehands, backhands, tomahawks for out of the woods shots, there's even a hole (or two) that just begs for a roller drive, stop at the pro shop just down the street
