Come for the Beer, not the Disc Golf

Other Thoughts:

I love having disc golf at breweries and wineries, but like many of the ones I’ve played this effort is half-hearted at best. The “course” is just Axiom Lite portable baskets in the open fields behind the brewery.

The day I played, two baskets were missing. There’s no signage and the tee areas are marked with small flags (several of those were missing too, but you could use the GPS map on uDisc to approximate). In fairness, the course is “seasonal” on uDisc, and I was playing in the first half of March.

But even if all the baskets and tee flags were in place, the layout covers open fields and spreads into bordering farmland. It’s rough underfoot and with the exception of some slight elevation change on the early holes, you’re just throwing across flat acreage. At 2000’, the nine is a decent length. It’s more than a brewery pitch-and-putt, but there’s nothing to give the holes any character - not a single tree, obstacle or hazard.

Several of the baskets are located in areas that often host picnickers and on busy days, you’ll be that guy throwing frisbees around groups of people in bag chairs.

Hopkins Farm Brewery has been making very good beer in a variety of styles for several years now. I’ve visited a half dozen times, and have never been disappointed. They’ve added live music, food trucks, fire pits and a private party enclosure. Good beer, good merch - but not good disc golf. If you want to introduce a beginner to the game or play a short course, head to the nearby Churchville Six. While you’re there, play the very good wooded and technical Mill Brook DGC next door. Then come back to Hopkins Farm for well-earned and very good beer.
