 Great Potential

Pros: Fun, challenging, tight and technical. Completely wooded. Flows nicely from hole to hole, good use of terrain with a mix of elevation and turns. Navigation simple even before signs added on all holes except the majestic 8, which speaks for itself, I guess.
Cons: Tee pads are natural and mostly in great shape, but some awkward spots. Could lose a disc here if you go off line, lots of under brush. All par 3's except for one which I think could be a 4, and wish it was. The hike between 7 and 8 is funny to me but could be absurd to some. If you plan on playing through twice, don't take the long path back. Double back through hole 7 tee pad down through 6 back to the 1st hole. Don't think I'm the only one who noticed this.
Other Thoughts: Signs are new to me as of 8/20/12 and bag hooks on the posts are a plus. Anxious for the planned back 9 expansion, and would even volunteer to assist. With a great back 9 and some TLC this could be one of my favorites in the state.

Pros: good mix of hyzer and anhyzer shots. The 2 par 4s are a great contrast to the numerous ace runs. Not too tight at all. The lanes are there for good shots.
Cons: More teepads ate in the works. Ace pot at 200 come to league Sundays 5pm handicap
Other Thoughts: Now that the course has 18 holes is phenomenal. If you like courses in the woods is 5 stars in it's sleep.

18 Holes in New Haven County

Pros: Fun, challenging shots. Good landscape and great use of elevation changes. Balanced shots between straight, right, and left. Course is basically clean and fairways are free of debris. Tee signs include distance, par, map and distance to certain landmarks on the fairway (turn, stream, road, etc.). Navigation is intuitive. Small orange-painted concrete squares mark a fault line on the natural tees. It's short, technical, and challenging on the front 9 and the designers really upped the ante for the back 9 getting some big distance. All holes are in the woods. Signature holes are 12-14 but every hole is distinct and memorable. There's a big sign/map at the front of the course. The locals have a weekly league going and schedule regular workdays to keep the course in good condition. Tournaments raise money to keep up and add to the course. The designer really keeps the course in excellent condition. The course is hardly ever crowded. Easy to drive to, right off exit 64 on the Wilbur Cross Turnpike (CT-15).
Cons: Natural tees have roots, rocks or other issues for your footing. The designers have started puting in some tee boxes, and they are not to my liking. I find them to be a touch too narrow and the gravel doesn't afford good footing. Also, they tend to get less level after a while due to regular use (or maybe abuse). Bathrooms in the parking area seem to always be locked. The mosquitoes here are really annoying; bug spray is a really good idea in the summer. Quite a bit of rough foliage and precariously positioned fallen trees too. Leaves on the ground in the fall make finding discs tough and it can be tough to find your lie on an errant shot too. A few fairways are really hard to find a line on. The longer holes could stand to be thinned out (especially 14) and a practice basket at the head of the course would be a great touch. It would also be nice to have a few holes that are a little more open too, but the park's property is entirely wooded so that won't happen.
Other Thoughts: This is the first and only 18 hole course in New Haven County. There's a lot to love here, though finding your lies can get frustrating. The new tee boxes are a bit of a disappointment, but I am happy to have this as a home course.

 great quick 9 for CT

Pros: challenging 9 holes with elevation and woods to conjure up all types of shots. short tight holes lead to many outcomes for a quick (dry) 9 holes of d.golf. kind of a hidden practice gem for us ct disc golfers :)
Cons: finishing hole 7 leads to a nice hike up to 8 but we all know thats part of the game!... and after 9 there is a bit of a walk back to 1, but it's just begging for 9 more. plenty of room for it too!
Other Thoughts: if you find the walk up to 8 and the walk back from 9 to be a bit of a pain, you can always play back to 5 after 7 and then return to 1 (located right next to the basket on 5) if you're looking for a longer circuit this helps too.
