Ego building and crushing
1 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: This is a tight little course and they have added a back 9 which makes this course worth the trip. The front 9 is a mix of short holes and funky tight "fairways". Hole 3 has no fairway at all to speak of. I threw over the top of the trees and that played pretty well actually. The Back 9 are longer holes and much more open. Nice use of the woods edges as obstacles. Hole 15 basket is up on 15 foot mound which makes it a fun challenge.
Cons: The back 9 cross over each other and a few front 9 holes in a few places. This could be confusing for some but the signage is pretty clear (and the map they give you). When I played, the course was pretty empty ( only 2 or 3 others out there) but if it got busier many of the tee boxes were VERY close to the previous basket. Could make for some dangerous stuff out there. Home built baskets on front 9 are cool but the chains could be lighter weight or maybe angled in more as they some times "protect the basket" instead of catch discs.
Other Thoughts: I am an intermediate beginner and I was even after playing 24( I played 18 then repeated 1-5 and finished with hole 18 again). So it would seem this is a beginner course. If you have a disc you can throw 175 straight on a line... You will do pretty well on the front 9. There seems to be a lot of property to work with so it would have been nice to spread stuff out a bit. Worth playing.

Build a Back 9!
Pros: Pretty easy nine hole course over a beautiful scene at the foot of Mt. Okemo. The homemade baskets are cool, and they work! The up and down effect is also neat, but there could definitely be more obstacles. The fairways are pretty empty and there are plenty of chances for aces.
Cons: The only real con is that the course is short and easy. Only nine holes, and many of them are straightforward, and short.
Other Thoughts: The people in the fitness center are nice and helpful, and apparently my -2 through 9, was only a stroke off the course record.

Pros: The homemade holes give you a local feel. Hole signage is sweet and quite informative. The course is groomed often, so it's hard to loose discs in the fairway. There are a nice variety of holes, all using the natural terrain.
Cons: Most of the course is out on an open slope - Wind can tear down the mountain and effect play.
Other Thoughts: The dense forest/marsh along hole 5 and creek on 8 requires proper footwear. Late summer is a great time to play if you like Blackberries. Blackberry bushes are along holes 1,2 & 8.
