Pros: - Concrete pads
- Mostly wide fairways
- Long course
- Never crowded, most cars I've seen is 10
- Well mowed and manicured
- Very challenging
Cons: - Distance can be hard to overcome some holes
- Windy days = lost discs
- Flooding possible
- Easy to get lost
Other Thoughts: This is the best park in Rochester. Period. It is extremely well maintained and just had concrete pads put in. It is an extremely challenging course for beginners like I was at the beginning of the season. My first time out there from the pro tees I finished +24 or something.

The famous Par 4 911ft. hole is not only famous for being long but if you throw a fade you can easily lose you disc in the untamed wilderness. Though, you get a great feeling of accomplishment getting a 5 or better on it.

Hole #18 is also very long at 728' from the pro's. So bring a big arm!

This summer has been very rainy, and the streams that run through several of the holes have overrun the path between holes several times, which means backtracking or foraging for wood to build a bridge.

I try to play here at least 1 time every weekend as it's my favorite course, and is night and day compared to others.

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: brand spanking new concrete tee pads, i was the 1st person to ever use them, there was a do not use tees sign up, but they were done, and i tore the course up
Cons: after heavy rain it can flood, like today 7/26, and theres lots of snakes, i've seen like 6 this year, and the bugs are a little bad
Other Thoughts: thanks for the tee pads, sorry you couldn't have been the first to use them :)

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.

Pros: Beautiful sights, very neatly kept fairways help keep you from getting lost going from hole to hole. Some long tee's will give you the opportunity to work on your long drives. Very interesting obstacles that you wont see at other courses.
Cons: Some holes seem a little to long for their low pars. Heavy vegetation will eat your disc's if you don't keep a close on on where your not so perfect shots land.
Other Thoughts: Course is beautifully designed with Variety of shots required. Pars are relatively low for some of the distances, but i guess they may be doable on a professional level. A big arm is required on a few holes, example being hole 11. A 911foot par 4, with a thick field hugging the right side. Most hole's have heavy vegetation that will leave you wishing you had thrown your stray shot a little better, but i think this not necessarily a bad thing. I've notice a few holes have moved their pin location to even more difficult locations this year.

Pros: This is by far the best course in the Greater Rochester area. The land is solely there for disc golf. The course is huge, well groomed, and never too busy.

Some people complain that it's a course for big arms but anyone who can throw over 300 ft should love it.
Cons: The hole that is 911ft long is only a par 4 when it should be a par 5 according to PDGA standards.
Other Thoughts: (revised) My old other thoughts section was created when I was a noob and when Ellison had no teepads and I sort of bashed it so I am updating it finally. Now that I've got a few years under my belt and Ellison has teepads I can honestly say that these courese are both 4-5 stars. Althought Ellison isn't as pretty, secluded, or vacant as Chili it has MANY different shots layed out which keeps it fun to play no matter how many times you've played it.

 Just like a golf course

Pros: - Amazingly manacured fairways with roughs and everything.
- Moderate amount of trees, making for the necesity of a good drive, otherwise you're going to get stuck behind I pine (as I did many times).
- A lot of long holes which most courses tend to skip out on so they can fit more holes into a smaller area.
Cons: - No concrete tee pads which make it hard for me to get a good release.
- The unmanacured parts of the course are very overgrown and could use some trimming.
- Very hard to navigate alone.
Other Thoughts: Upon arrival I was a little sceptical because the parking lot was under construction, but after walking around the course a little bit I could tell that it was going to be a nice course. It is set up like a links style golf course and is one of the best courses I have played and I would recommend it to anyone in the Rochester, or even New York, area.

Pros: Clever lay out, varied enough to keep you driving an hour to play it, accessible enough for beginners to do reasonably well. No real danger of losing your precious plastic. This course has more elevation than most ppl think. 25-30ft?
Cons: tees, drainage, an hour drive from me...
