Pros: Not many Water Hazards (unless you throw wayyyyy off line). Short technical holes mixed with long distance holes. Great scenery, not very crowded.
Cons: Summer months the grass grows huge and doesnt get mowed alot which makes for easy disc losses when throw in the roughs. No swimming allowed.

Pros: Well kept, clean course.

Beautiful setting around lake

Good variety of shots and hole lengths
and nice use of elevation

No danger zones, good separation between fairways

Easy to find your way, good course flow
Overall good design makes for a good tounament course.

Nice concrete tee pads over 10' in length and signage describing hole characteristics

Good use of ob on some of the longer open holes keeping them interesting and challenging

Cons: No real long technical wooded holes
Other Thoughts: This is a great property for disc golf. There is plenty of room for more permanent tee pads and baskets.

there were some great scenic holes..#16 was right at the lake.
Cons: popular. seemed pretty busy..but the course goes fast..so it's not that bad.
Other Thoughts: pomfret is about 15-20 minutes away ..so if your taking the trip hit them both up.

 Best in CT

Pros: Beautiful surroundings, with well manicured grounds. Great remember able holes with the risk versus reward factor. Use of landscape for hole variety. Take with maps and scorecards available.
Cons: No tee sign, And with out the map you might get confused at a couple spots.
Other Thoughts: I really wanted to mark this one higher because the park is just beautiful, with multiple views of the lake, and extremely well kept grounds, but with single tees and no tee signs I couldn't. The park it's self has your basic amenities as camping is likely one of the big draws for the park. Pick up the map/scorecard, so you have all the info you might want. The course is easy to follow but the cross from 8-9 and 12,13,14 go me to check the map a couple times. The gravel tees have held up pretty well with a couple having a bad spot or two. The course has such a great mix of holes from the woods to the fields, and multiple water hazards. The fairways are well defined and manicured, even the field holes which were mostly mowed fairways in tall grass(which normally I hate), were wide enough so it was a true fairway. The use of minor elevation changes made for some fun shots, like #14 a downhill and to the left to a hidden basket on a slight elevation with an open back to the lake behind.

Overall I think this is the best course in CT. What it lacks in some areas it makes up for in beauty, and design. If They put a little more money into adding a second set of tees and some tee signs this would be hands down the best and likely jump a disc.

Pros: 18 hole course, only one set of tees and no signs. But it is pretty easy to get along. A few holes on this course stand out as being very well designed and unique. Hole 11 is about 650 feet with OB Rocks (Rip Rap) along the right hand side, and trees covering the left hand side for the first 270 feet. The "green" area is close to Rip Rap, and close to trees requiring a nice risk/reward shot. A 3 is a birdie on this hole. The other unique hole is number 16 which is a down hill shot shooting onto a Pennisula. But it gets even harder when you add large tree/bushed at the face of the peninsula. Some great holes that I will always remember.
