Pros: Easy to follow layout. New metal signs with great graphics and info. generous tee pads that are flush to the ground. warm up basket. picnic tables spread every few holes through out the course. benches and garbage cans on many others. great mix of open, tunnel and wooded holes. it does not seem to be left or right hand bias, as i played with a lefty today. well behaved dogs can run freely. free to play, camping onsite during summer.
Cons: the rough can be very rough at times of the year in between mowing, however, the fairway seems to stay short and matted down. there are several holes that can be sloppy muddy in the spring or times when there is three day rain storms ect. ive seen 16 not be playable at times due to water blocking the path to the peninsula. dogs, can be a distraction to some people. walkers also use the park and can sometimes slow progress down in the summer.
Other Thoughts: there is a good cummunity of players here. even when i go alone i end up playing with some locals. the place seems to stay free trash. it is great piece of property for disc, terrain and scenery wise. the designers used the lay of the land quite well. i feels all levels and throwing styles can enjoy this course. There is 5 wooded holes, 8 open holes and 5 that are somewhat tunnel shots but without being overly tight. the course is not overly technical but there is some water and OB which gets you thinking about shot placement. overall im very pleased to have this course somewhat close to home and feel it is worth a lengthy drive to play.

Favorite course in CT
Pros: My favorite course in the state, with some of the most unique and memorable holes that I've played so far. Very fun and challenging, a mixture of wooded and open holes, creative pin placements on a few, and some great use of water OB. Incredibly scenic and free to play.
Cons: Can be a little busy at times but that's a minor detraction. Some of the rough is rough, and can make disc retrieval of errant shots a process. Hexagonal shaped tee pads were an odd touch. I feel like there's room here for alternate tee pads and loops, too. Some more maintenance (especially lawn) would be nice. Would've liked a scorecard/map but navigation wasn't difficult.
Other Thoughts: Warmed up for 9 at Pomfret Center before coming over and felt like that was the right way to do it, as another reviewer had suggested. Lost a disc to the lake here but had a great time anyway, and would definitely make the trip again. Playing this course is a pleasure, it's truly an obscure gem.
