Pros: Solid baskets, tee boxes, good lines to throw threw, friendly players and developers. This course was my home course for a few months so I played often. It was nice to play without paying too!
Cons: There aren't really any cons accept I would have enjoyed more par 4's but it's definitely a solid course!
Other Thoughts: Looking forward to get back out there to play this summer. I have yet to see it without snow and with leaves!

This course will test your limits in EVERY way
Pros: A FREE course located right next to the soccer field at the Dover High School in NH. Lots of places to park, right when you pull in bear right for closer parking. This is a course with a few ace ops and will reward a skilled player.
The fairways are tighter than tight, most of the locals who have had success at the course stick to side arm and over hand shots not just for tee shots, but, putts and approaches as well; using 150 weight discs. If this is a style that you are familiar with you should have no problem navigating the fairways.
I have seen this course looking both good and bad. With the replacement of the ancient beat up practice basket at the start of the course things have seemed to improve. Although, during the course of the season and as it gets closer to fall, believe me when I say that the upkeep goes down; the signs wear fast and with the movement of the baskets its hard to tell how truthful the signs are if you don't play here religiously. However, volunteers run the course and for how much has been put into the course the fairways are kept up as well as can be expected and there are littered trash cans and benches to rest on as well.
Overall, this course will change the way you look at the game and faithfully show you what you need to be working on in your game.
Cons: Baskets change location on a relatively weekly basis which makes for an even more challenging course; they know how to keep a player on their toes.
Because of the tight fair ways and having relatively no open holes, this is a hard course for RHBH players. To add to this the par is a low even 60 not giving you much room for error. If you mess up a shot keep your composure and get to the basket in as few strokes as possible, or suffer the consequences.
The course is free as I have stated so certain amenities are not provided as they would be for a paid private course; simply put there is no club house, and nowhere locally to buy discs outside the Portsmouth mall area at the Dicks Sporting Goods. For bathrooms, there are a few port-a-potties located at the top of the parking lot closer to the soccer field.
Other Thoughts: Holes one and two are water holes. The average player should have no problem making it over the river from the tee on the first hole, but the long fairway on hole 2 sports an embankment on the right hand side that is steep and the trees are thin, discs tend to slip through.

Pros: The pro tee boxes are well marked. The fair ways are clear, the baskets are easy to find, good mix of shots. Alot of trees makes it a good challanging course.
Cons: A lot of little sticks and branches on the ground to fall on.
Other Thoughts: Was on vaction in Maine and drove down to play this course and will go again.

Bellamy Park DG
Pros: 1. Will make you use all kinds of shots
2. Good basket placements
3. Good hole variety even for it being mostly heavily wooded holes
4. More and more concrete tee pads replacing natural ones
Cons: 1. Poorly marked between baskets and next tee pads
2. Can be difficult to find some baskets, they SHOULD use some PINK flashing rather than ORANGE!
3. When the HS is in session, try to avoid course between say, 2:45 and 3:15. Kids just pour in to dick around and smoke weed and they'll get in your way. Dover XC teams also will swing through on fall afternoons sometimes, but they get out of your way quick and therefore aren't a nuisance.
Other Thoughts: This is an unfailingly interesting course as long as your okay with lots of trees. The windows are a good challenge and will force you to think out your drives. Convenient location and always nice to play for free. And even though it's a town park there are never many people who aren't there for disc golf.
