Pros: updated review because of recent play there. First off,,Tully has the only brick tee pads in MA. They are nice brick also,,,not too grippy but not too slick either. They put a ton of hrs of work into the course this summer and it really shows.
The Scenary is amazing with a big lake right on hole one.Generally a wooded course but with a few "let er rip" holes. The variety of holes is great,,,some short//some long//good balance of flick/bh holes.
Im updated my rating simply b/c of the work thats been done. The tee pads are the best in MA (especially if you have knee issues from all the fly pads). Changing the tee pad location on 2 and 8 really makes a big positive change to the course. Add the scenary and variety of holes and its a phenomenal course.
Cons: Someday i think this course could get a 5. Tee signs are the obvious con. several of them are innacurate (footage on scorecards are correct though). Also i thought taking down a couple more trees up near the basket would make it a better hole.

The baskets are in excellent condition
Last fall they started making stone tees

Pros: This course has it all. It is a great course to learn and great place if you know what you are doing. Well marked off and well kept up. They have a league ever sunday that is a blast. It is a great place to meet people and a great place to go if you want to just play. You will be impressed
Cons: To busy sometimes.
Other Thoughts: You need to play this course it is great. Don't pass it up if you are near it. Sundays at 1:00 are league and they are lost of fun. Any question call the disc barn in Orange

Pros: Free!, Very pretty course (foliage was peak), Super easy to get around (even for a first timer), Good mix of holes (elevation, dog legs, hazards/OBs), Good tee signs
Cons: Tight fairways overall, Hole one can swallow discs, Going off course or out of bounds is not easy to recover from-as most of the clearing was on the fairways, not around them
Other Thoughts: the natural beauty rivals conway, great free course, the only hole that can eat a disc did- farewell T-L, Looking forward to going back

Pros: All of the holes, except for one, have paver tee pads and are the best in MA. Tees have colored signs depicting where the basket is located(although some aren't accurate right now). Very easy to navigate; paths between holes are open and precise. Great array of different holes and shots. The land is used to maximum efficiency. Holes vary from having a large water hazard on your left (lake on hole 1) to having a mando through a very tight alley of trees (several different holes). There are next tee signs on holes that don't have a clearly defined path. You might have to look for them as they are on cardboard on some holes while they make wooden ones. There are trash cans on holes 1, 7, 9, 14 and 18 as well as coffee cans for butts right next to the tee signs on each most of the holes. There is a porta potty at the beginning of the course near basket 18 on the way to hole 1(it is kept there throughout winter and quite clean). Hand-made benches are on a good majority of the holes as well. There is also a playground for the kids across the lake from hole one with a boat ramp, payphone and full indoor bathrooms(unsure if they are kept unlocked). There are also walking trails and a small swimming hole.
Cons: Some fairways are overly woody and tight. (this is only bad due to the amount of foliage in the summer) The course is played through a lake/dam that they are draining so it is very soggy on some of the first few holes. On hole 15 off to the right hand side there is a large marshy area so be prepared to get wet if you have an errant throw. For the not very athletic type there are quite a few elevation changes which can tire you out quickly. The recent redesign in process has left multiple tee signs inaccurate. Some tee pads are slightly not aimed at the hole due to the re-alignment.
Other Thoughts: Overall a good course and not one you have to look for the tees. Not a good course for beginners but intermediate players would love it. There is pretty decent parking by the 1st tee and the 18th tee has overflow. They are only about 1/10 mile away so no long hikes! Basket 8 has been moved about 200' further up the course and changed to a par 4. Tee box 9 has been moved up about 100' up to the top of the hill and been changed to a par 3.

Pros: -Diversity(water,woods,uphill,downhill,short and long shots) - First hole eats discs especially newbies like me - Free - Easy to navigate - Easy to find - Fun
Cons: - Only flat tee is #1 the rest are rocky dirt - #10,11,12,13 are in dark woods kind of dismal feel - lots of logs and brush around could be cleaned up for a more proper feel
Other Thoughts: If tee areas were flat and not rocky dirt course would be worthy

Pros: The course has a decent mix of elevation change and open/wooded holes. Real potential to be a great course but needs further development.
Cons: Tees are not developed, flat or large enough. Some wooded holes lack true fairways making the luck/skill ratio lean too much towards luck.
Other Thoughts: Although the course is new this Dam course has a great deal of potential. Great tournament and I would certainly look forward to playing there again. All the cons are fixable.
