winter and spring=golden
Pros: Wonderful lay out
Lots of variety
The stream at hole 9 is perfect for a dip or a drink half way through.
Cons: In the summer it is VERY overgrown. Not much upkeep. I have lost a half dozen discs over the years in the summer, but in the winter and spring it is perfect.

First Course I Ever Played
Pros: Just A Great Course. It has improved every year since I have played and it has been over 6 years now. Tons of variety on hole locations and tees. From open fairways, wooded areas and different elevations.
Now, there is 3 tee locations on very hole, from beginners, intermediate and pros.
Beautiful scenery, you have a stream which comes into play which is very refreshing on those HOT MUGGY VT summer days.
Just all around a great course to play...
Cons: At times during the year the Grass can get very high, this can lead to long searches for discs and lost ones. (They do cut it periodically but not enough)
Parts of course can be very muddy and wet after rain fall days before played. (They try to add log bridges and everything to help, but some areas can't be helped)
The Tees are marked very nicely, but in some areas they need better tee pads instead of gravel or dirt. A couple of them have concrete and nice turf pads but others need to be worked on.
Other Thoughts: If you are from the Burlington area, this is the fastest course to get to which is sad because it does take over 30mins. But it is a great course to just play some great rounds of DG with friends.

Pros: Nice mix of shots open, technical
Good for all abilitiy levels pro and novice tees
Amazing old sugar maples!
Good tournament course, no crossing fairways no real danger zones good overall flow.
The designers did everything they could with the land available. Very well layed out incorporating lots of prominent features into the holes.
Cons: Tees are terrible. The town does not allow the locals to take care of the course the way it should be. There is so much potential here it is hard to describe.
Would be nice to have some signs and concrete tee pads. Even having someone mow once a month would be an improvement.

Pros: I really enjoyed the course layout. Very nice hole designs with a good mix of long and short holes, with left and right turns, and some good elevated tees. Free to play, and a great area with great views. Very challenging as well, overall a greta course that will make you use all your shots.
Cons: Course could use better grooming. The course gets overgrown in the summer,and it becomes really easy to lose discs, even in some fairways. Very sloppy in some areas after it rains. Course was installed years ago, result of that is some holes don't have a line to the basket anymore due to trees growing larger. Baskets are well aged and rusty, could use new baskets for sure.
Other Thoughts: Overall a very nice course that would be even better with more consistant upkeep. I really like the course layout, one of my favorite courses to play. I would be willing to pay to play if that helped get the course groomed on a regular basis.

Too often overlooked
Pros: 18 holes of excellent variety. Alternate tees. Very well designed. This course has it all. Long and open, short and wooded, water hazards and elevation - something for everyone's taste. Natural setting in woods and fields. Great views of the Green Mountains. Several elevated tees. Character of the course changes with the seasons. Friendly locals. General store nearby that sells discs.
Cons: Not very well marked. Somewhat overgrown in summer (but also very green). There are some walking trails nearby, so people walking across fairways are common on a few holes. Closed for mud season.
Other Thoughts: Great course that needs a little help.

Pros: This course deserves more respect. It has a huge diversity in holes and is set in a beautiful spot. Great views of Hunger Mountain and Stowe. Lots of elevation changes, some holes are long and some are technical.
Cons: Baskets are rusty. Pretty poorly marked. Grass gets super long in the summer and much of the course is swampy at many times of the year. Easy to lose discs in the summer.
Other Thoughts: This course definitely deserves more credit, just for its diversity alone. Very fun to play.

needs a weedeater!
Pros: *Beautiful setting in a city park with mix of open & wooded, slightly hilly landscape; features an awesome stream on a few of the holes in the middle
*Great views of the green mtns
*2 sets of tees - white & blue
*A lot of potential if it was trimmed up -- notably the hole before you get down to the stream (#8?) that is a short hole throwing down a steep hill...blind now & very easy to lose a disc, but would be awesome if you could see where you were throwing
*Easy to find
*Near Ben & Jerry's icecream factory!
Cons: *No signage - while there were a few signs remaining from a May '08 tourney, most had just the tee markers & numbers -- no distances or visuals of what the hole looked like
*Many blind teeshots - on 4 or 5 holes I had to walk down the length of the fairway to figure out where I was throwing, which sucks when the hole loses 50+ feet in elevation and you have to walk back up to throw - several are blind to the point of errant shots resulting in lost discs
*Very overgrown. Knee high grass on many holes; i was losing discs in the fairway. On several of the holes trees must have been small when the fairway was designed & have grown tall blocking any realistic shot -- needs some serious trimming
*Baskets in bad shape for being installed only 6 years ago -- already completely rusted out; maybe this is a northern thing due to the weather?
*Mostly dirt teepads -- some were on natural rock & a few pads. I played in the rain and footing was not great.
Other Thoughts: I played blue tees & shot a 54 with plenty of birdies & bogeys. It's a short par-3 course with only a few holes 350'+. Some very good short holes with tight lines & nice tee/basket spots.
This course has potential to be a lot better, mainly with some heavy trimming -- a lot of the holes had no lines or ran a high probability of losing a disc because they were overgrown & blind. There were also many holes requiring a walk down a fairway to see the basket, then having to walk back to throw.
I'd play again, but more to walk around in the beautiful park than for the course
