Pros: Good baskets and excellent cement tee pads make the course nice. It seemed very well maintaned.
Cons: Its WIDE open with the exception of two woods holes that are the shortest holes I've ever seen. I played this during a tourny and the OB's added some difficulty but on a regular round I can't imagine being challenged by this course.
Other Thoughts: Its worth stopping by if your in the area but I wouldn't make it my sole reason for coming to the area. Stop by and eat at Robbie T's and tell him your a DGer, they support the sport in the area.

 Great park, Great club

Pros: A great park with multiple amenities. Beautiful concrete tees and quality baskets. Fairways are always immaculately manicured. An active club hosts a great league and annual tournaments. It would be tough to lose a disc here. Clean permanent bathroom facilities down by the beach. Fantastic course for working on your long game. Maps and scorecards at hole 1 in season.
Cons: Lack of obstacles. Repetitive holes. No tee signs. Overlaps a dog park. Fairways 12 and 18 can collide.
Other Thoughts: This course is the perfect compliment to nearby Oxbow Falls which is a course that tacticians will love and boomers with limited accuracy will struggle with. These two courses cater to locals with different tastes and offer variety to area golf enthusiasts.
The local designers did a nice job working with the terrain available to them. Stop at nearby Robbie T's Pizza for lunch. They do a lot to support the sport.

Pros: nice concrete pads and shiny new chainstars..set in a very nice county park..
Cons: sharing the course with a dog park...pay to park from spring to fall...not many trees(weird con?)..to me there's not much variety or trouble here..
Other Thoughts: pretty simple to follow even with no tee signs, longer arms will have an advantage here as 5 of the holes are "wide" open and 400'-600'...scorecards are usually in a the box near 1's tee...course record is a 43 by 2 guys..

Golf Course or Disc Golf Course?

Pros: Good place to practice throwing it all out on huge, bare fairways. Reminds me of a par 3 golf course in the layout and the amount to which it is manicured. Concrete tees. Good use of the landscape available on most holes. Holes 10 and 11 are a nice change of pace with ace opportunities. Easy to navigate. There's usually score cards and maps at the first tee. Beach available if you'd like to go swimming. Picnic areas. Perfect place to practice new shots and not worry about losing a disc. Good course for rollers.
Cons: A little bit too wide open. It is also a dog park so there may be some unleashed dogs running around. Usually not a problem though. Whoever can throw the farthest usually scores best here in my experience. This is due to the lack of obstacles on too many holes. There is almost no shade so remember to factor that in on a bright summer day. You have to pay to enter the park, I think its 4.50.
Other Thoughts: Planting some trees or shrubs on holes 2, 8, 9 and 18 would serve this course well. These holes are completely open with the only obstacle being long distance.Tiring course on your arm, or atleast on MY arm. I think the front 9 scores easier than the back 9 for most players. That being said, I like the back 9 better. The best designed holes are all on the back 9 in my opinion. Hole 17 being my favorite. Runner up is hole 15. Solid course. Not a spectacular course, but I do enjoy playing here. Stop by Robbie T's if you're in the area and in search of a slice, he's a good guy who does a lot for the sport. Robbie loves us.

 Too Much Field

Pros: Nicely maintained course with ample scorecards at first tee including a map. Nice concrete tee pads and baskets are in good shape. Holes 1 - 6 are interesting with a good mix of hole types (open field, woods to left or right, hidden pin placement on 4) 10 and 11 offer a nice change up also. If you like to throw long on a majority of holes then this course is for you.
Cons: Too much flat out winging your drive and sometimes 2nd shot. There are at least 7 holes on this course that affer nothing but distance and maybe a chance to improve your wind play.
Other Thoughts: I think I only had 2 birdie looks the entire round. Course flow is fairly intiuitive except 1 -->2 10 --> 11 and 15 -->16 but the map helps out in each case. Very quiet here on a Sunday morning and even though it was early (9:30 AM), it was hot out there with much open field walking and throwing. Combine all this with a $4.50 entrance fee and I'm not sure I would try this on my own again - maybe with a carful of players........

Pros: Wide open course except for the last 2 holes. First 9 kept my attention and were fun to play. After that, the back 9 (designed mostly by the park and not the local Disc Golf club I believe) featured to many holes that looked similar. The last 2 holes you could tell were just thrown into the little patch of woods with no real thought. As the course ages, it may take on a better shape. I have heard/read that some changes may have been made since I last played the course.

 Well maintained, for the long arm!

Pros: Very well maintained course. I play here all the time and its one of my favorites. We added concrete tees this summer. has all the variety so you can test all your skills
Cons: Is in a multiuse park so certain times through out the season its not playable. (balloonfest, trackmeets and such).
Other Thoughts: Check the CNYDGA web forum before heading out. The park Staff usually posts on there if it will be closed or otherwise hindered for disc golf. www.cnydga.org

Pros: The people take care of this one, it is mowed, groomed, scorecards are availabe onsite. Some very creative holes which is nessisary due to the open-ness of the park. Offers a good challenge for players OF ALL SKILL LEVELS.
Cons: if you like tight wooded courses, you will only like a few of these holes.
Other Thoughts: Bring your Wraith, or inferno, or whatever goes the farthest.

Pros: Concrete tee-pads, printed scorecards available at first hole, park is well maintained.
Cons: A lot of short holes, no signs, no hole variety. Not really worth the $4.50 entry fee for just one round.
Other Thoughts: Jamesville is a great park but not such a great disc golf course. Most holes play in an open field with no trees or obstacles which makes for a rather boring game. There were a couple of holes that took you out of the field but they were VERY short (one was 100ft., yes, 100ft.!).

Jamesville doesn't offer much challenge for experienced players but it would be great for beginners due to the length of the holes and the chances of losing a disc due to a bad shot are slim to none on 90% of the holes.
