It's kinda close it's just that to get there from J requires a bit of back tracking. Thruway goes right over top of it but the next exit is 10 mins up the road then requires 10-15 mins of back roads to get back there.

Here's a link to our clubs page on J park. http://discap.net/courses/j-park/
Thanks so much for the info - that's awesome. I was planning on leaving Toronto at 7:00 am, getting to the Rochester course (probably Parma now) at around 9:00-9:930 and playing until lunch or shortly thereafter. Then I'd make the 4 hr drive to Joralemon and play until I couldn't see my hands in front of me I figure I'd get to J by 4:30-5:00 if all goes well, leaving me - I'm assuming - enough time to play a full 27. However, I can see myself changing plans as I go, depending on the feel of the day. I mean, I might just leave at 5:00 am too

You'll like Parma. It's the course I look forward to playing every time I go visit my mother in Rochester.

Maybe I'm biased because I play both maple and pyramids multiple times a week. I think you'll be taking away from your maple hill experience if you don't make a day of it. I would suggest stopping into Marshall St to see the pro shop and then heading to maple ( literally a 30 second drive) and playing at least two of the layouts. Pyramids is a solid course but if I only had one shot at playing disc golf on Marshall St I would spend as much time as I could at Maple Hill. Especially if you're skilled enough to play the golds with confidence. For me even the blue and white layouts are better than Pyramids. If you're really set on playing two MA courses then I would suggest adding one of the dam courses over pyramids. Both Barre falls and Buffumville are reasonable options. Tully and Thompson ( in Connecticut) are probably a little too far out of the way. Also be aware that Maple Hill has increased their rates to $20 per person on weekends in the summer. Be sure to get here on a week day to pay half price. Just my 2 cents.

My plans have changed slightly as I now realize I will be within putting range (okay, maybe a simple upshot) of the Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown. One of the NY courses may have to be sacrificed, but I'm determined, dammit! I'll keep y'all posted on how it plays out. Thanks again for all the advice, I really appreciate it!

Already is. It looks super sweet and I'm gonna try my best to get there after Cooperstown. If all goes to plan, I'll be playing Parma, then Cooperstown, then Mine Kill. It will be a long day, but if my buddy and I can pull it off, it'll be epic (I've google mapped the sh*it out of it - it's a possibility!).

I might have to sacrifice J-Park, but I might also try to squeeze it in the next morning before heading out to Maple Hill. I have a problem, I guess :P

I just returned from a trip in that area and would highly recommend getting J-Park in there. IMO it is the best course in that area and fits into a course heavy DG trip better - very interesting land features and offers a more enjoyable round than Mine Kill (walking/undergrowth)

So, I didn't properly plan for family and hangover interference. But I have made it to Cooperstown at the expense of Parma. Cooperstown is the absolute sh*t and if you even kind of like baseball, you have to visit the place.

That being said, at one of the local watering holes in Cooperstown, I manged to run into some disc golfers and we're now playing Mine kill in the morning, hitting Maple Hill after that. Life is good, baseball and disc golf for everyone. And now I'm watching Field of Dreams in my hotel room.
