Fun Little Course
Pros: Had the opportunity to play this course over the summer. Just a couple miles off the Merritt Parkway and or Route 34. This course has a variety of holes allowing for some low scoring opportunities on short holes, challenging accuracy on others and a couple with some distance. It is quite wooded, has some elevation and a little stream that runs through the first few holes. Nice baskets and a quick round for 9 making 18 quite doable.
Cons: No tee boxes on any of the holes. Decent signage for each hole layout, but no direction between holes. The later holes of the nine were especially challenging forcing us to wander around on our first time there. I am sure no problem for locals, but a little tricky for first timers. Also a couple of the holes lacked a true fairway that I could find forcing some head scratching.
Other Thoughts: Overall a fun course. We did it as part of a little DG/Brewery run. New England Brewing Company, arguably CT finest, is one exit north on the Merritt, about 10 minutes away. Made for an nice Saturday afternoon. Enjoy some DG and some fresh Ghandi Bot!
Pros: Fun, Quick, and fairly easy to play. Wont even need drivers on most holes. Hole nine ends right at hole one and you will find yourself done so fast that another 9 holes is easy to endure.
Cons: Tee markers are small concrete blocks on the ground, hard to find first time through but once you play through you wont forget so hard to even call it a con. Heavily wooded but not impossible.
Other Thoughts: Great for beginners and as others said its good for short hame practice.. Minor elevation and all holes are short except for maybe hole 4 where basket is on a hill surrounded by trees after a long dogleg lright

Nice Hilly Terrain For Course!
Pros: The High Plains course plays down below the picnic area in lovely wooded, hilly area. It's a grand area for a disc course golf course. The course from the shorts is definitely a recreational or beginner with only # 4 playing over 230 feet. It plays longer from the Longs but I wasn't always able to determine which tee Iwas playing from. But in spite of these relatively short distances, the courses offers some challenge with it's tight windows and hilly nature. It's too bad that the parks dept. won't allow any more permanent signage or teepads because they both lacking here. The teesigns are just patio bricks lying on the grounds with the info written on them. I'm sure they regularly get thrown into the brush. The teepads are natural and hard to determine where they start and finish. A board at the start would help. How about pavers? Would the parks dept. go for them?
# 8 was my favorite hole from the longs. It's 315', throwing across a tree ridden valley. I liked it a lot.
Cons: I's really like to see some kind of simple improvement made to the teepads here. At least, bury a 2" x 4" at the front of the pad. Man, you should be able to work with the parks department ton the pads and some kind of simple signage that is non-permanent in nature. Almost every other course in the country is managing to make it work.
Other Thoughts: There's a sign at the beginning notifying golfers that this course will be removed if they don't start picking up after themselves. Then I get to about three baskets in a row where the baskets are being using as trash cans with cans, glass bottles and plastic bottles stacked on top of the baskets. It was disgusting! I packed as many out as I could squeeze into my bag. Pick up after yourself guys, freaking slobs! Don't screw up and lose this course. Sounds like the parks guys already have their panties in a knot.
