Tough course with rewarding views- Lyndon State College
0 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Nice boxes and tees. Lots of shot variety. Well-maintained course that is very difficult to master.
Cons: Lots of luck is involved in getting a great score. Some holes do not really have much of a path to follow. Some channels need to be widened to encourage precise shots. Multiple tees would make this course much more fair for novice players!
Other Thoughts: Add some multiple tees, clear out a couple of trees, add a walkway or two, and this course could really flourish. Too much trash on site as well. Bring a bag and you can make a $1 in cans and bottles at the Redemption Center on your way home...

Pros: It is a disc golf coarse with new pins and platforms
Cons: -It is not disigned well
-Some holes are hard to find (no maps)
-There is extreamly thick grass around all feild holes except #1 and if you are un lucky enough to get the disc in there, you will never find it
-The mosquitos are terrible
-Alot of the holes are disigned so that your throw will either be lucky or unlucky and can leave you thinking WTF
-The trail to the next hole for some is unexplained and confusing
Other Thoughts: If you are feeling lucky you may as well buy a lottery ticket in stead of loosing 15$ in plastic
I played in a group of 3. We all lost a disc

If It Were A 5 Hole Course It Would Be One Of My Favorites
Pros: The great holes on this course are wonderful, memorable, challenging, beautiful, and make you want to play 'em more.
A great use of the land provided in terms of stringing together 18.
Miss Lyndonville Diner is probably the most exciting thing about playing this course.
Cons: - I feel like i've been playing disc golf enough to know the difference between a challenging shot and blind stupid luck. If you want to try your luck, i suggest buying loto tickets down the street somewhere.
- The majority of the holes play like 2/3 things are always obnoxious about it. If you look at a hole like a drive, an up shot, and a putt then you should expect saying "WTF?" on 2 of those 3 factors on the majority of the holes. Either the tee shot is beautiful, you land perfect and have no idea what to do next, or you don't have a tee shot, or the tee placement is the worst possible location to take advantage of a great hole.
- a lot of travel without guidance between holes.
Other Thoughts: Keep 5 or 6 holes and rethink the rest of the course.

This course has a lot of variety
Pros: I really like this course. It really needs you to have a variety of shots but focuses on control. Only a couple holes have any real distance to them. The new Tee Pads are great.
Cons: This course has a lot of shots that require a good bit of luck to really pay off. You can feel pretty wonderful or pretty terrible after your tee shot. I love this for the good days but hate it for the bad days. Depends on how your day went.
Long walk back to the car at the end of your round.
Baskets could use some color to make them a little easier to see from the tee.
Other Thoughts: Hole 7 can be a lot of fun once you master the line.
Hole 14 is a narrow tunnel that makes a perfect throw real rewarding. On the flip side if your disc goes off course the bounces could take it anywhere.
Hole 18 seems to always have some wind that does strange things to your drive.

Fun and challenging
1 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: -Excellent variety of holes. wooded and open, left and right dog legs, BIG up and down elevation changes.
-The course is pretty challenging, but still fun for beginners
-good tee pads and baskets
-Beautiful views of surrounding mountains
Cons: -There are a couple holes where tree positions leave you with little options for a good line to the basket
-Needs more signs indicating next hole and hole layout
-Having the last hole so far away from the first is a little awkward but not a big deal.
Other Thoughts: This course is like going on a short mountain hike. It's challenging and fun. More courses should be an adventure like this. Playing this course every day would keep me in shape!
I played this course again recently and they have added tee pads and it was much better maintained compared to last time (mowed grass and cleared brush). I really enjoy this adventuresome course!

Pros: the course is very divers in the difficulty of holes, the front nine are very technical, if playing with two people have one down course as a spotter, or a Lab that can find your Disc for you. Second Nine is fields or in an old tree farm that you can practice your long shot.
Cons: It would be nice if the baskets were colored, hard to see, 12th-14th hard to follow if you don't know the course, baskets are hidden.

not so much
Pros: This was a great place to install a course.
The terrain and the scenery is simply amazing. There are newer baskets.
A nice safe setting.
Plenty of room to expand in the future.
Cons: Whoever designed this course has probably played very little to absolutely no disc golf in their life. On the front nine there are several holes that are extremely poorly thought out. There are many better basket placements available on the front nine that would offer much better challenge, and play ability. There were three or four holes that were unrealistic, and just plain stupid. On the back nine there were four holes that were just grip and rip boring holes. Hole fourteen was one of those awesome tree tunnel shots that you dream about.
Other Thoughts: Do not drive a long way to play here. You will not be totally disappointed, but you will not think it was worth it. Someone who is familiar with the game of disc golf should help re-design this course and make it into a top notch course. Also the weeds and undergrowth needs to be chopped down especially by the baskets. It is just plain irritating to not be able to find your disc when it is three feet from the pin.
Also you have to walk about twenty to twenty five minutes to get back to your car after finishing 18. What a drag! :(

A nice addition
Pros: This course has good hole diversity as far as wooded, open, and elevation.
College campus with ample parking and free to play.
Beautiful views of the mountains
Overall a fun course to play
Easy navigation from hole to hole
Chances to test your wind distance and putting on this course because of its high elevation exposure.
Cons: This course is new and needs some tweaking. Some holes have unrealistic fairways and are not fun to play. Most of the holes are exceptional otherwise.
The tees need some kind of permanent fix before they become mud pitts. To me tee pads are extremely important as far as safety goes.
Other Thoughts: Lyndon is a great addtion to the growing number of Vermont courses. With age and continued work and play from local enthousiasts this course will only get better.

Pros: Each hole after you have played it once or twice becomes something you want to master. I enjoy each hole because none of them are the same. There are some great down hill throws that if thrown just right your disc will sail out of sight and you will be shocked to find it close to the basket.
Cons: In the early spring and summer the bugs are heavy
Other Thoughts: I helped build this course, I enjoy hole two the best. You can use either all the discs in your bag to go for a great score or you can just use an ultimate disc and have some fun!

Best use of small space
Pros: Hard work evident in well thought out and clean fairways. If you pure your shot, you are typically rewarded with a short putt. Not a bunch of random trees=no penalty for good shots
Cons: hole 5 can get pretty wet on the left side of the fairway and last year at least, the gap to the green was pretty vaguely defined and frustrating
Other Thoughts: From the pictures on this site, the course looks like it's just getting better and broken in. When I played it last, the grass was super long and disc locating could be difficult. Love hole 2 and believe I own the first ace on the course, I hit it before the tee signs were up
