With a steep, open, slopes, a section of mid-sized hardwoods criss-crossed by narrow-to-broad paths, two small ponds, and a streamlet, there's a nice blend of natural resources with which to work.
Motivated co-designers Matt and Andrew often tweak the course in order to maximize its potential.
On-site brewery - Milk Stout was my favourite.
Natural tees can be sloped, uneven, rocky, etcetera.
Single-chain, portable baskets, a couple set quite low, a couple quite high.
Limited availability - always check ahead.
This course plays up/down/across the open space, and into/out-from/thru a small patch of woods, of a small up-n-coming brewery. With no hole over 400' and 2/3rds 300' or less, your control game is what will be challenged here. The wooded holes are not particularly tight, but require a specific window, usually late, to be hit in order to have the birdy opp. Many of the more-open holes have steep down-slopes, requiring a very delicate touch.
Favourite holes: Number-6, from an elevated position, has a pond ~200' away, behind which is a small clearing, with the basket not far from the pond shore. From the tee, branches from the trees "frame" the pond, so you'll need to either go underneath them, or try up-n-over. Number-12, ~400', goes ever so gently upslope through a mixture of hardwoods, with the basket in a slightly elevated position on a small mound of rocks.
Least Favourite: Number-13. The natural tee was short, rocky, and tree-rooted, and bounded on the front and back by the streamlet. Tree branches require the drive to stay low early, but upon exiting the woods, the hill slopes steeply upward.
Navigation: The map is a must, as the tees are only marked by small, in-ground flags, with no other signage, and the course is continuing to evolve. There are a few places where you backtrack or cross other tees.
A fun course worth a visit, especially for beer connoisseurs.
Update 11/18/12: Course is in winter (longer) setup. Roughly 1/3rd of the holes remain unchanged, 1/3rd add considerable length, and 1/3rd are either new or so different from their summer counterpart that they should be considered new. Maps for both winter and summer layouts available under Links.
