Pros: 18 hole course with new baskets and nice, flat crushed gravel tee pads. There are maps and scorecards available in the store on site.

Store has a good selection of discs, bags and outdoor accessories. Especially bug sprays and things for dealing with the deer flies and mosquitos.

This course is set up as the White level course for beginners, intermediate players, or just people that want a more relaxing round than what awaits across the street. Hole lengths range from 153' to 354'. The design of the holes vary also. There are some wide open ace runs, and some tight challenging holes as well.

Course is very well maintained. Open areas and fairways are mostly mowed grass. No weeds, rocks or saplings to work around. Most fairways were designed from the cross country ski trails used in the winter. Next tee signs are placed throughout the course to help with navigation.

The first 4 holes are pretty much wide open and reachable for most players. Don't let these fool you. The rest of the course plays in the woods, and offers more challenging layouts.

Remote, pristine wilderness. Private course with a great feeling of being out in nature. Hills, woods, creeks and small pond all add to the scenery. Very nice landscape.
Cons: Lack of length or big drive holes for throwing drivers.

Using the ski trails for fairways occassionally creates some strange lines and limits the shot selection somewhat.

#7 tee way too close to basket #6. #9 tee is close to #8 basket also. Safety hazard if multiple groups on course.

Not a lot of big sweeping turns or curves. Ski trails limit the shape of fairways.

Some branches neeed trimming snd ceilings need cleaning up.

Hole 15. Right now luck is important as skill. Not really any path to the basket. Good luck.
Other Thoughts: This is a pretty good, basic course. Plus it is very new so I would expect it to improve as the owner learns, and tweaks the design. Course will be open June 1 - Oct 31, then ski season begins.

I really enjoyed several holes on this course. #9 is a short 153' uphill shot with a creek in the middle. It could be an ace run, or you could suffer due to roll away risk by the basket. Either way it is in a beautiful spot.

#12 is a tight 354' uphill shot that might be the most challenging hole here. It is one of the holes that makes this course fun for experienced players, not just beginners.

#14 is probably my favorite hole here. It is 276' slightly uphill and over a small pond. Not really any lost disc possibility without a flukey throw or bounce, and it also has two lines you can hit from the tee. Just a pretty technical shot finishing with the basket wedged into some trees. Well done.

This course is definitely worth a stop. It has some limitations due to length and the shape of the ski trails, but for a beginner friendly private course it is nice. Plus there is camping nearby, as well as fishing on the salmon river if you are interested. All in all, this is a nice addition to the NY dsic golf scene. I look forward to coming back, and seeing the growth and improvements as this course ages.
