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.

Lyndon State College DGC
Pros: Free! Tee spots and trails are not hard to find. Nice brand new baskets. Nice view of the green mountains. Very challenging course, bring all of your shots! Nice tee off signs. Nice map that is helpful.
Cons: The baskets are very hard to see, so you have to walk out and find the basket before each tee shot which is annoying. Only problem is you don't end where you start, but this might be for expanding at a later date.
Other Thoughts: When you enter the parking lot for the Rita Bole Complex, take a right and drive straight and park in one of the spaces. The First tee should be right in front of you. With a rules sign. This is a very challenging course and makes you use all of your shots. This course has neat tee's and nice baskets. All holes are par 3. Nice mix of holes, and a lot of fun.
Hole 1 - This hole starts off shooting over what looks like an old pond or something. A huge fairway and no trees. Basket is across the field by a pine tree. Might be hard to find if you don't know what you are looking for.
Hole 2 - This hole shoots down hill into the second opening. Basket is tucked away about 20 or so feet in, you can't see it from the tee. There are quite a few trees and a hill behind the basket area.
Hole 3 - This hole shoots down hill off the tee you can see the whole fairway, basket is at the end to the left. A tee shot going left or right could really mess you up.
Hole 4 - To get to hole 4, walk back up the 3 fairway 15 feet and there is a trail leading to the 4th. This hole is located not up the main fairway you can see from the tee, but up the steep hill to the left ¾ of the way to the top of the main fairway. First shot will land on the main part of the fairway, next shot has to go up the really steep bank to the left and the hole is located at the top. Large hill to the left of the basket your disc will most likely get lost if it goes down there.
Hole 5 - A few trees right in front of the tee. Basket is straight away under some big trees. There is a big drop off to the right of the basket that will eat your disc right up.
Hole 6 - Hole 6 is very shot, but there are a few trees that make it very hard to get around. Basket in the middle of tall grass and trees that go around it.
Hole 7 - This is a hard dogleg to the left, with tons of trees around. You will see the line that people use (very small and hard to hit) Hitting trees on this hole will most likely happen. Basket is tucked away in a small opening.
Hole 8 - Just like hole 7, a lot of trees. If you find the right line and hit this you are doing good. Hitting a tree is a given. Hole is a dogleg right that sits on the top of a huge hill with nothing around it. Once you get out of the wooded part over shooting this pin will cost you big time.
Hole 9 - To get there, from the 8th hole, with your back to the opening where you came out of from the 8th woods, look to your left and cross the road. This Tee is located by an entrance sign to the college, you cant miss it. The hole is located past the big tree in the middle of the fairway at the top of the hill. This hole is uphill the whole way.
To get back to your car, walk the 3rd base side of the soft ball field and when you reach the end of the fence you should be able to see the parking lot down the hills to your left. Walk in a direct line to the lot you will pass over a small bridge and through the ropes course then you will end up on the 1st holes fairway back to your car.
After a nice round of disc golf go into town and find the Miss Lyndonville dinner located on main street. Best food you will ever eat in your life!!! Be sure not to speed in town. (the cops are mean here)
