One of a kind
Pros: A very unique links style course that highly resembles a real golf course with mowed fairways and tee boxes. Practice basket near parking lot. Three sets of tees on each hole. Great mix of distance from really short deuceable holes to a monster 911' hole. Along with some really unique obstacles/basket locations.
Cons: Be prepared to play in the wind, even on a relatively calm day the wind will mess with your shots. Unmowed grass off the fairway gets pretty tall and will eat your disc if you don't keep a really good eye on it. A few swampy areas make disc retrieval not so fun.
Other Thoughts: I call this the best course in the Rochester area due to its one of a kind feel. Bring your distance drivers and big arm, but don't forget your accuracy either.

beautiful and tough
Pros: Beautiful sights, very neatly kept fairways help keep you from getting lost going from hole to hole. Some long tee's will give you the opportunity to work on your long drives. Very interesting obstacles that you wont see at other courses.
Cons: Some holes seem a little to long for their low pars. Heavy vegetation will eat your disc's if you don't keep a close on on where your not so perfect shots land.
Other Thoughts: Course is beautifully designed with Variety of shots required. Pars are relatively low for some of the distances, but i guess they may be doable on a professional level. A big arm is required on a few holes, example being hole 11. A 911foot par 4, with a thick field hugging the right side. Most hole's have heavy vegetation that will leave you wishing you had thrown your stray shot a little better, but i think this not necessarily a bad thing. I've notice a few holes have moved their pin location to even more difficult locations this year.

Mecca of Rochester Disc Golf
6 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: This is by far the best course in the Greater Rochester area. The land is solely there for disc golf. The course is huge, well groomed, and never too busy.
Some people complain that it's a course for big arms but anyone who can throw over 300 ft should love it.
Cons: The hole that is 911ft long is only a par 4 when it should be a par 5 according to PDGA standards.
Other Thoughts: (revised) My old other thoughts section was created when I was a noob and when Ellison had no teepads and I sort of bashed it so I am updating it finally. Now that I've got a few years under my belt and Ellison has teepads I can honestly say that these courese are both 4-5 stars. Althought Ellison isn't as pretty, secluded, or vacant as Chili it has MANY different shots layed out which keeps it fun to play no matter how many times you've played it.

Just like a golf course
Pros: - Amazingly manacured fairways with roughs and everything.
- Moderate amount of trees, making for the necesity of a good drive, otherwise you're going to get stuck behind I pine (as I did many times).
- A lot of long holes which most courses tend to skip out on so they can fit more holes into a smaller area.
Cons: - No concrete tee pads which make it hard for me to get a good release.
- The unmanacured parts of the course are very overgrown and could use some trimming.
- Very hard to navigate alone.
Other Thoughts: Upon arrival I was a little sceptical because the parking lot was under construction, but after walking around the course a little bit I could tell that it was going to be a nice course. It is set up like a links style golf course and is one of the best courses I have played and I would recommend it to anyone in the Rochester, or even New York, area.

Pros: Clever lay out, varied enough to keep you driving an hour to play it, accessible enough for beginners to do reasonably well. No real danger of losing your precious plastic. This course has more elevation than most ppl think. 25-30ft?
Cons: tees, drainage, an hour drive from me...

Baker my Baby!!
Pros: If you've got an arm then you'll love this course. I was blessed to live nearby for 5 years. The ideal time to play this course is in the spring or summer. When the tall grass is as tall as yourself, and the fairways are perfectly mowed. Very demanding fairways. This course may be wide open treewise but you definately dont want to find yourself off the fairways. This is a big arm course. accuracy will help but you need to be able to throw at least 300< to truly appreciate this course. It has 2 holes over 800 feet and a couple more over 600'. It is beautiful however, old farm fencings, an antique windmill, a small silo, and creeks on a few holes. Also it is usually fairly empty even in the busy seasons as there is no local club that exclusively takes care of it (but the township does).
Cons: If your specialty is short and accurate not you cup-o-tea but an amazing course still. There is no local club that maintains it, but the township does an amazing job!!
Other Thoughts: Many people think that Ellsion park is sooo much better. I lived here for seven years and i'll say. Bakers farm is every bit as good (better in my opinion, if you've got an arm), but the club for Ellison is much more active & greater!

A real course!
Pros: Unique. Lots of interesting obstacles created out of a basically flat and treeless terrain. Trees are growing in many places and so it keeps getting better. This place is just a disc golf course and not a park also. Although it can be long and challenging enough for pros it's a fun place to bring beginners to see what this sport can be like.
Cons: A little too open and long on the back 9. Some of the old signs are broken or missing. Although there are alternate tees, they can be hard to find since they're flush with the ground.
Other Thoughts: The Town of Chili and committed to fixing this place up so hopefully it will return to it's greater glory.

Big Shot Required
Pros: Huge layout with different tees. The fairways are large enough to allow you to air it out with everything you have on many holes without fearing your disc will never be seen again. Well manicured. Elevated tees and greens and some signature holes you won't see duplicated elsewhere. (11 and 18) A small creek comes into play on a couple holes which serves as a water hazard.
Cons: Many if not most holes favor the biggest throwers. Too open on too many fairways.
Other Thoughts: Very fun course that provides a unique challenge in terms of the vast length of some holes. A must play if you find yourself in the Rochester area. Beautiful course all the way around. I'd bring a golf cart if I owned one.
