Pros: Beautiful looking course. Very unique in Disc Golf standards. Groomed to look like a ball golf course with a lot of landscaping. Three tee placements per hole which change often. Plus most holes have additional pin placements. (can be windy) Has a couple of raised greens that are nice to look at and challenging to putt on. If you play from the RED (middle position tee) you have a lot of potential birdie holes and if you play from YELLOW (long position tee) you have a lot of practice with letting it rip. Great course for beginners.
Cons: The last few years the town hasn't been the best supported for Disc Golf. Hopefully that will improve.
Other Thoughts: On a side, note, It is said when Ed Hendrich (Father of Disc Golf) first visited this course, he got out of his car, stared out into the course and said something like... This is exactly how I dreamt Disc Golf courses would look like. (Quote isn't an exact quote because I wasn't there, but you get the idea)

TOP 3 in Rocester Area
Pros: Course gives an opportunity to let loose with a variety of shots and constent changes are made to the course to prevent monotony.
The course starts out with an elevated tee pad to get you excited at the begining of the game.
It's very nice that the course is exclusively a disc golf course, no worries about stepping poo or having a dog run off with your disc like at Ellison.
Course features some finess holes and room to practice you long drives. including a 900 foot bomb for those of you wanting to air out your favorite putter.
Tounament quality course that is well manicured.
Cons: There is a small chance for disc loss. The course is relatively open which seems beginner friendly, but a 900 foot hole is never a beginner hole. This course favors the big arms, if you can't throw 300 feet consistently then the course won't play the same.
Other Thoughts: remember to sign the notebook.
Clearly a memorable course with several other great courses in the area, worth a weekend trip.

Wide open spaces
Pros: This is a true disc golf course, not just disc golf wedged into park space. Tees are well marked with detailed carved wooden signs. The length of the holes make driving a workout. The unique terrain of the greens, with mounds, trees, and even a silo can make putting interesting as well.
Cons: The color scheme of the tees is unconventional, thinking that reds were the shortest I played from the yellows, not noticing the order of Yellow>Red>Blue...confusing for the first time through.
Also I echo the sentiments about some of the holes on the back nine, particularly the long 11th and 18th. They reminded me of what I don't like about ball golf: throw it as far as you can; chase it; repeat.
Other Thoughts: Everyone who complains that DG has no driving ranges will love this course. For the rest of us, it is still a very interesting, unique and relaxing place that is worth the visit.

Pros: The front 9 has a wide variety of short-medium length holes. A creek brings course management into play for 3-4 holes on the front. Hole signage is very nice. It's not part of a public park, so there isn't any non-DGers to get in your way.
Cons: The back 9 is terrible. Basically it's "see how far you can throw your disc across an open field" with little originality.

Pros: Creative course design have made this a fun course to play.
Cons: Some holes were too wide open. Hucking in a field is not golf to me.
Other Thoughts: Loads of work have turned a farmer's field into an interesting experiment in dg.

Another great course
Pros: Normally well maintained, great layout.
Other Thoughts: This is one of my favorite courses in the area. It's very unique and almost reminds me more of a ball golf course than a disc golf course. Most of the holes play in the open so you'll have plenty of chances to "grip it and rip it" here.
I play here almost every week and it's definitely worth the stop if you're in the Rochester area.
