Pros: A very nice course. The signs are very descriptive and the tees well marked (at least on the front nine). The woods are well broken in: the good shots get through and the bad ones hit trees or fall over hills, but no discs get lost. Great use of the ups and downs of the terrain on the back nine. The front nine and back nine are laid out as two distinct circuits, which makes it easy to just play one or the other, or to take a break in between.
Cons: The red tees and yellows (which I'm assuming are am and pro) are IDENTICAL for all of the front nine and most of the back, I felt like the 3 tee concept was a running joke. The back nine shows evidence of late night partying /drinking and destruction of tees and signs. Vandalism is an unfortunate issue with woods courses, and it is evident here.
Other Thoughts: Even though it is over an hour away, this is one I'll play again.

 Great Wooded Course

Pros: Challenging pars without being "unfair", there is almost always a path available to make it to the basket. Rough isn't too thick so losing discs isn't a major issue. Home-made benches at a lot of tees.
Cons: Some missing signs. The walk from #9 to #10 may confuse first-timers. Print a map if you haven't played here before.
Other Thoughts: Basil is one of the more popular wooded courses in the Rochester area and also one of the most challenging. Making par here is tough but it can definitely be done with some accurate shots and a little luck!

If you're into wooded courses or you're just looking for a challenge then by all means, stop by Basil for a round or two.
