Gem in the making
6 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Excellent signage, very easy to navigate. A great mix of both long par 5's and shorter (but not too short) par 3's. The fairways are wide and generally open, there are several wooded holes with a good amount of trees to navigate through and even the open field holes make good use of tree placements. The tee boxes are top notch - large, level, firm base of crushed stone topped with rubber tee mats. The mixture of right and left doglegs forces you to use a variety of shots.
Cons: Going off the fairway is often unforgiving and unfriendly - thick underbrush which makes disc finding/recovery tough. A good amount of poison Ivy in the rough as well. No elevation change - hard to call this a con given that you're playing on a beach island with no elevation change anywhere. A little tough to find the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: This is a course still under construction - as soon as I stepped onto the course it was very apparent that an incredible amount of hard work has been done to make this course a reality. There were only 8 holes playable when I was there but the entire course should be open by late Fall. The short tee boxes are not in place yet - they are marked and have a sign at them but no tee box - yet. If you go to Nantucket and are a Disc Golfer don't miss the opportunity to play here. Before you play, email Todd the course president he's the engine behind this project and a really nice guy - he met me for 2 rounds on the 2nd day I played. If I ever get back to Nantucket I can't wait to play this course again to see it in its final finished state. Definitely a gem in the making - thank you Todd and all the other Nantucket golfers helping to make this place come to be.
