Pros: - multiple tee pads though it's a tweener situation for me: shorts are really short and longs are pretty challenging
- tee pads were fine, there were signs at each hole
- baskets intact, some interesting stumps and green features to add difficulty to approaches
- good amount of parts 4''s
- the park is huge and really nice. Lots of parking. No one else on the course.
Cons: - entire course was covered in standing water and mud. Thorns everywhere and thick brush on each hole.
- course layout wasn't very imaginative, the whole thing is completely flat and the holes are reptitive
- difficult to spot baskets off tees
- poor flow, had lots of trouble finding the next tees
- not super broken in, wasn't always apparent which lines are supposed to be the fairways
- the course us tucked way back into the park, took me a bit of driving to find
- lines were a weird mix of really narrow or wide open, mid sized gaps would play better
Other Thoughts: I guess the big disclaimer is that I played this course during the winter which is probably most of the reason the course was in such poor shape. But even if there was no mud and the brush had been cleared I still wouldn't give this more than a 2. Page Park in Bristol isn't too far away and blows this course out of the water in every category. If you have time to get to Cranbury I would head there as well. But I can't see this course being a good option for any other reason than you're a Southington local and you don't want to drive too far. Finding a less flat part of the park and working in some park style holes in the open grass would have greatly improved this course as well as adding some markers after each basket pointing to the next tee.

Pros: My sons and I played it for the first time Sunday - found it a bit muddy - and pretty challenging...
Cons: Highway noise was a bit loud, We lost 4 discs at two holes - 3 on the third, as it crosses the power line right of way, very pricker-y. And on the 18th in a giant pile of prickers on the right.

Pros: Tricky course with plenty of brush and small fairways to keep you from getting that close birdie. Water hazards <3. Very easy to find as long as you follow the signs.
Cons: The brush along side the course was horrendous. The course NEEDS to be cleared of all the deadwood at the least, and the mosquitos could have been a little less atrocious. That and the course billboard could have a map to show people who didn't design where the fuck the holes are. Getting lost in that section isn't exactly what I had planned for my first time out on a course in Connecticut.
Other Thoughts: If the designers or town or Parks and Rec could at least put up a map for people to use, that would greatly improve the course. I would have rated it higher had it not been for the lack of organization.
