Pros: - carpeting or fly18 pads used for tees
- creative use of the land to get 9 quality holes
- there is a bucket of discs near tee 1 to use as loaner discs if you've never played before. Or if you have any extras, leave some for new players that may stop by.
- you'll learn to play in the wind
- one of two courses in Nova Scotia
Cons: - not actually 18, or dual teed
- difficult to follow because there are no markings on the tees, but some paths are slightly worn to give a guesstimate as to the direction to head (hole 4 is in the woods behind the shed you throw by on hole 5; tee 6 is back along the treeline after you finish hole 5, tee 9 is back up in the long grass from where you finish 8. I found 9 to be the most difficult tee to find)
- very long grass can make discs difficult to find, even in the open field, so watch where you throw
- no bathrooms or trash cans
- don't play after it rains because this course gets really waterlogged and you'll end up with soaking wet feet
Other Thoughts: In the directions, exit 2 should actually be 'exit 3,' but it is the second exit (traveling eastbound) on the TCH, hence the confusion. Other than that typo the directions to get you there are good

Gogan's Green is a creative nine hole course, but it doesn't provide much challenge because it is mostly short and open. The wind provides the biggest challenge. Gogan's Green is worth a stop if you're driving through on the TCH or looking to pick up a course in Nova Scotia.

Pros: Despite being mostly in a large open field, most of the holes feel like they have their own identity. Some holes have hills, tree-lines along one side of the fairway or the other, and many of the baskets are protected by trees or other obstacles.
Cons: Not actually 18 holes, just 9 holes with to sets of tees. I only managed to find the second tee for 3 or 4 of the holes.

The course is mostly in a wide open field with very tall grass so you spend a lot of time looking for your discs on regular shots.
Other Thoughts: I'm very impressed that the owner was kind enough to open up his private course to the public. Be warned, I showed up to play a second time and the owner was packing up the baskets to take them somewhere else (temporarily I assume). So it is not guaranteed that the course will be there when you show up.
