A (relatively) open, flat, and short (141'-226', average ~190') 6=hole course useful for introducing people to disc golf. Nice baskets and good teesigns.
As this course is geared towards beginners, there are some "danger" areas:
- Horshoe pit (don't know how often it is used) to left of fairway-1 / behind basket-6.
- Shule, and much farther away, a road, along the right side of fairway-3.
- Thick shule quite close along the entire left side of fairway-5 - a very natural place for a beginning RHBH player to throw. This will probably cause the most problems, i.e. disc searches.
- Fenced-off area along right side of fairway-6.
Bit of a chokepoint as players move from 3 to 4, then 5 to 6, as they all share same path. Players at tee-5 will need to be aware of people exiting the wooded path on their way to tee
This new course, designed by the Scarboro Hills (great course!) gang, should prove quite useful to introducing people to the game of disc golf. While baskets 1, 2, and 6 are completely unguarded, number-3 has a few well-placed small hardwoods and a few pines to force some shot-shaping, number-4 is a tunnel (short distance and generous window) shot, and number-5 has shule to the left, some trees straight/right, to avoid on the way slightly downslope to the basket.. Experienced players should have multiple ace runs and enjoy a birdy-fest.
The on-line map is useful to avoid any confusion as to which basket to throw, and shows how holes 4&5 are on the other side of the narrow strip of woods. Combined with the tall, blue teeposts, the course was easy enough to navigate.
This is a tough course to rate. As a place/way to introduce kids and newbies to the game, it is fine, but it has little replay value, except for maybe glo or safari, for a player beyond complete novice level.
