Pros: Nice wide open playing field.
Cement pads.
Not much worry of losing a disc.
Fairly easy to find the next Tee pad.
Just enough obstacles to make it interesting.
Nice and quiet.
Beautiful area.
Nice parking lot.
Cons: Probably my only complaint is that it's super hard to see where the baskets are because they basically are all galvanized grey, no color to stand out. You can look right at it and not see it. They really need some color or something, especially since many of the holes are fairly long or well hidden behind obstacles.
Oh, and I only saw 2 red and 1 blue marker the entire course and I was really looking for them. If you're going to show them on each sign then they should be clearly visible so people could use them if they wish.
Other Thoughts: I LOVED this park! It was quiet and peaceful and just a pleasure to play through. The length of most (minus a few) holes was just perfect for really airing it out. I like the woods courses a lot but this was refreshing to only contend with a few trees or obstacles and just let it fly. It gave me a chance to try out some of my newer drivers and see what they do. I probably enjoyed the front 9 a bit more than the back 9 and could see myself playing the front 9 twice through sometimes. Though I didn't like 900' hole 11 I can see where a big arm would. That's where I would have liked to see the red and blue clearly marked. If no other hole, at least mark that one. This course is now one of my top 5 courses and I can't wait to play it again.

Pros: I just love this course. Beautiful property. Unique vanity style obsticles. Gorgeous little sculpded fenced natural obsticles. Very beautiful water shots with great design around it. Nicely manacured fairways. Smoke shack silo is super cool. Course design works with wind stream.
Cons: Possible mesquito action. The super long basket is a little boring. Privacy may be an issue.
Other Thoughts: Just wonderful!

Pros: Concrete pads are real nice Wide open light trees plays more like an actual golf course, great for all levels of skill and very forgiving if u have a bad day, multiple tees make great for kids or beginers, very pretty course during full foliage
Cons: liter is a problem on a few holes
Other Thoughts: nicely cut fairways, well kept overall, just a fun time, give u many shot options to test out and play with, good for learning and praticing new shots or disc, overall one of the better corses in rochester in my mind

Pros: Being a dedicated course is great. The fairways are beautifully manicured, with sawgrass for the rough, making it worthwhile to stay on the short stuff. BIG course with many long distance holes. 11 is over 900 ft..... And slightly uphill. The facilities are great, there's concrete at every tee, and the upkeep is amazing. Obstacles are well placed, making for some challenging long throws. LOVE the inverted "bunkers"! Really one of the nicer Rochester courses, and host of the 1999 Worlds. This is the course than ended Climo's streak!
Cons: The tall grass does make it tricky to find your disc if it ends up in the rough, so watch your disc all the way to the ground. If you're looking for any tight/wooded holes, you will be disappointed.
Other Thoughts: The majority of the holes are pretty long, but there are a few birdie/ace holes mixed in, giving the course great variety. Really a gorgeous course all around. It's just as nice as any ball course, but luckily has baskets instead of holes. If you're in the area, you owe it to yourself to play this one!

Pros: Each hole is clearly labeled; so no guessing where to go next. Grounds are kept up nice. I actually felt like i was on a golf course. There's a few very long holes and some good natural obstacles; tons of trees and high brush along with defined fairways and rough. This is the nicest course i have been to so far!
Cons: Honestly none. I have been enjoying heavily wooded courses lately which this is not at all but was still a great course to play on.
Other Thoughts: If you haven't been here yet you should definately check it out, you will not be dissappointed.

Pros: This was the course that I started playing on, and it still stands up to any other local course. This place really simulates the "real" golf course environment, complete with some raised tees and greens, lots of un-mowed "rough" and the best variety around. The concrete teepads makes my 4 into a 4.5.

UPDATE: Played a few Rochester rounds this weekend and this course is REALLY nice now. The signs are great and I really like the illustrated full course signs.
Cons: The bugs can get REALLY nasty in mid-summer. Also, there's a few places where you can easily lose a disc in high grass/nasty brush.

UPDATE: Seems that this course can get rather crowded these days.
Other Thoughts: I took the game for granted when I was playing rounds weekly here. I'd kill to be 10 minutes away from this place like I used to be.

Pros: Perfectly mowed course. No Dogs. No strollers. JUST DISC!!! Haven't been out to the Farm in few years. The old building was gone. New parking lot. Concrete pads( no ruts-AWESOME)
Cons: It does get swampy. But I ususually waited until 4th Julyish to start playing. Dry Spring you can play earlier.
Other Thoughts: Papier-māche tree gone. STill have the tin shed and old windmill. Absolutley love this course. Ellison was my 1st but this is my fave after that silly redesign at Elllison.

Pros: "Immaculate" is the first word that comes to mind. Beautiful golf-course setting with manicured fairways and great scenery. Wood chip bunkers, a couple murky ponds, a stream, and some good old-fashioned woodsy rough can come into play if you're not careful. A variety of pine and deciduous trees also dot the landscape in strategic spots.

Course flow and the play of each hole are well thought out, rewarding good throws and punishing bad (although usually not too severely.)

A big arm will definitely help here, but smart upshots and good putting are probably more important. Most baskets are either elevated or guarded by trees and/or other hazards.

Freshly installed concrete pads are a nice bonus.

The locals must take a lot of pride in this course, as I saw no garbage cans yet hardly any litter. It was also nice to be in a setting almost entirely geared towards disc golf. No close traffic, no loud parties at park shelters nearby, no dog walkers or oblivious park zombies wandering around fairways.
Cons: Ladies' tees are tough to find; my wife guessed where to throw from on a few holes.
Other Thoughts: Definitely worth the trip. I would gladly pay to play at a course like Chili.

Pros: Well laid out course, cement tee's, and ladies tee's as well. Clean no trash and cut grass, trees, ect... emaculate!!
Cons: only one I can think of if you don't like long courses this one has some long holes... and I hear bugs can be a pain but really wasn't bad when I was there...

Pros: A very unique links style course that highly resembles a real golf course with mowed fairways and tee boxes. Practice basket near parking lot. Three sets of tees on each hole. Great mix of distance from really short deuceable holes to a monster 911' hole. Along with some really unique obstacles/basket locations.
Cons: Be prepared to play in the wind, even on a relatively calm day the wind will mess with your shots. Unmowed grass off the fairway gets pretty tall and will eat your disc if you don't keep a really good eye on it. A few swampy areas make disc retrieval not so fun.
Other Thoughts: I call this the best course in the Rochester area due to its one of a kind feel. Bring your distance drivers and big arm, but don't forget your accuracy either.
