Pros: Rarely do you see anyone. It's not really a multi-use area, but a dedicated disc golf course area, with two adjoining 18 holers that can also be played 9 from one course and 9 from the other. Plenty of variety.
Cons: It's in the middle of nowhere, but the drive is worth it. Stay long enough to play both courses and the 9 hole pitch and putt.
Other Thoughts: There are rumors of another new 18 hole course being added to the park.

Pros: Excellent mix of holes including doglegs that go straight for 100 feet and then take a 90 degree angle turn to the right for another 150 feet or so. Most of the holes are under 300 feet but are still challenging because of narrow fairways and the previously metioned doglegs and there are a couple of holes to air it out on. This course is much more maintained than it's brother the Wreckreator and it was fairly easy to follow with plenty of places to sit down, be it a bench or a log. The teepads are nice and long so those of us with huge run ups are taken care of nicely.
Cons: Some of the baskets you can't see at the teepad so you have to walk down and find them which slows the game down a bit. Also there are random holes on the course made by the local animals which pose a hazard if stepped in.
Other Thoughts: Overall a very good disc golfing experience and there is little to improve on here. I went to the local market in Athol and bought a shirt that makes fun of the name of the town(use your imagination!) I prefer this course over the one next too it, also there is a small family friendly 9 hole warm up course that not many people know about that's behind where you park so if you are stopping by check that little course out too.

Pros: North Star, along with it's sister course, The Wreckreator, are both located in Farragut State Park. The course plays mostly through some deep pine forrests. The teepads are excellent, extra long. The course is well marked. It uses the same little plastic "next tee signs" as they use in the campgrounds here. They're great for a disc golf course as they are flexible and just pop back into place if slammed with a rock or something. There are scattered benches for rest spots along the course. I think a lot of work has gone into this course constructing the paths leading from baskets to the next tee. There is a well stocked pro shop at the ranger station on the drive in, although the discs are pricey ($17). The course is basically level with no water coming into play. And the course is a definite challenge, there's nothing easy about North Star.
Cons: Watch out for the ground squirrel holes (like a praire dog, only smaller). At least that what I think the little critters were that kept popping up all over the course, I know they weren't elk. Might be a easy way to twist an ankle. I grew pretty weary of the mostly tunnel shots through the pines. It costs $4 to get in and that's only good for that day, not for 24 hours. I played late one evening and then very early the next morning and had to pay again.
Other Thoughts: Hole # 12 is fairly different. It's 215' to the basket but the fairway is probably 80' straight then a 90 degree dogleg right for the final 135'. So off the tee you have to throw a perfectly placed anhyser. It's usually the kind of throw you find yourself making after an errant tee off. Interesting?? Different, for sure!

Pros: This course is in the middle of a large state park, surrounded by tons of pines and other large trees, bushes, flowers, etc. Being that it is in the wilderness, it is quiet and very peaceful. The fresh air and surroundings make for a wonderful experience. The nature and wildlife was abundant, and for the course itself, well worth the drive. This course has a warmup area with a net to practice drives (which I thought was clever) and a practice basket. There are few elevation changes, primarily flat with several obstacles between the tee and pin. The DISCatchers are in good shape and the cement tee pads are great for long drives. The course requires some tight accurate shots throughout, as well as several chances for power drives.
Cons: Although the course was well maintained, at times it was difficult to find the next tee, and the pin placements were often blind. I found myself having to walk the holes first to make sure the signs were accurate and updated.
Other Thoughts: My overall experience in Athol was very enjoyable. I was able to take in the scenery and play a solid round of discgolf. The hike throughout this 18 hole course was relaxing and quite rewarding. Discgolf fanatics will truely appreciate the experience that North Star DGC has to offer.

Pros: Great layout, variety of shots and greens. Great tourneys out here with a lot of land to work with. Fun terrain and views. Good, challenging Disc Golf. And if your throwing well, you get rewarded.
Cons: Blind holes and difficult tees.
Other Thoughts: What a place to play. The mountains, the fresh air and disc golf. Plenty of camping and water, so make it a weekend. Play the wrekreator while your here. The courses are getting better every year.
