Good Home Course

Pros: -clean, clear fairways, but the trees provide some flavor
-excellent use of natural features such as elevation and brooks
-signature first hole which requires you to throw from a stone outcropping across the river
-tees and baskets are in excellent condition
-well-stocked pro-shop with rental discs which are often utilized when I bring my friends to try disc golfing
-lots of parking
Cons: -a few discs have been lost in the river by my friends trying for the first time
Other Thoughts: -this is a public park, so be aware of other people in the area
-the local schools run their cross country events here so be wary of runners during the fall sports season

Easy to play hard to master

Pros: - Easy to get to
- Free to play
- Good hole variety with subtle elevation change, distance, left or right, water, etc.
- Concrete tee pads are nice 90% of the time. There are a few times a year the ice is bad otherwise they play great.
- Other people on the course have always been friendly and most people seem to return disc to the lost and found
- The club and most players do a great job keeping this place clean and not full of litter
- The addition of a pro shop is huge, plus they have a bathroom which was missing before.
- Although the trees do make it challenging the hole distances usually mean a new player can grab a couple pars first time out.
- Lots of mulch for trails and around baskets
Cons: - Lots of dog walkers and other people using the trails for recreation. They are nice people but you need to be even more careful when throwing because they typically aren't aware of the players.
- Not that many open holes so it's hard to really rip anything big down a fairway.
- The signage isn't great from hole to hole, so the first few times out it can be a bit confusing.
Other Thoughts: I've played this course almost once a week for the last few years and still find that it's challenging enough to be fun, but easy enough that I've brought quite a few people who are newer to the sport and they've had fun too.

Really nice course!

Pros: The course is layed out so that you really don't have to do much walking to get to the next hole. Signs are posted at every tee box to make it easy to determine your best approach. The first hole requires a throw across a small river, which is very nice. The pro-shop at the park is located at hole 18, which is very convenient if you need anything after finishing your round.
Cons: Being that the holes are so close together, a couple of spots may interfere with players who are playing other holes. This would really only be an issue though if the course was crowded. The baskets aren't numbered, which could cause a little confusion if you're not familiar with the course.
Other Thoughts: I'm very much a beginner and thought that some of the tree locations made the course a bit challenging. But I'm learning that this is only part of the way the game is played. I played another course that was somewhat close to this one and enjoyed this course a lot more. I would love to play it again when I'm back in town.

Great Local Course

Pros: - Disc Shop on site!
- Concrete Tees
- Well groomed
- Very active local Club backing/supporting the course
- Clear Signage
- 2 Possible Basket locations on each hole
Cons: - Some holes have very set and tight lines you need to hit, and if you miss or hit a tree early you are probably looking at a 4-5 on a par 3
- A few of the tees are very crowded with other holes so its Heads Up.
- Can get VERY crowded at times with large Cards
Other Thoughts: Overall great local course to play with most of the regulars being very nice and helpful.

One thing to add is the Club is VERY good and consistent with Disc Fishing. So if you loose your disc in the drink and it has your name on it, you can expect to get it back.

 Technical - but fair

Pros: Really well maintained. Good signage. Right off the highway. Mix of right and left tee shots. Fair par ratings.
Cons: So tight as to be limiting of shot varieties. Seems to be a decent amount of regular hiker traffic through the course -- need to keep an eye out for folks walking through your shot.
Other Thoughts: only played it twice in one day, But got the feeling that regulars could master this place with some basic trial an error. Seemed like there was probably only one good way to play many of the holes. Lots of wood out there, but mostly fair throughout. A lot of fun to play!

 Organized chaos

Pros: +Variation of pin position
+Challenging
+Well maintained
+Enough par 4s so your self esteem won't be totally killed
Cons: -Some fairways are very close to one another
-Sometimes TOO many trees
Other Thoughts: This is a very wooded course but it plays very crisp. It was rare to hit a dangling limb or land in an unplayable spot. Fairways are defined and have many options but are very TIGHT. This was a great course to play and I would definitely recommend it to any player who wants a challenge.

 Seacoast public course

Pros: Well designed, wooded course. Layout flows well. Great tee pads. Mostly, nice controlled tee shots. Great baskets, benches, and water features. Nice spot to practice putting with two baskets.
Cons: If you lose a disc dont expect to get a call or find it in the lost and found. Lock your car doors. REALLY busy at peak times. Easily the busiest course in NH.
Other Thoughts: Philbricks bike shop is right down the street. They have a good selection of discs from several manufactures.

Pros: A smaller course with an excellent feel.
Happy to be left handed on specific holes.
Trash bins at every tee.
Concrete tee boxes.
Rewards technical shots.
Two turns off of the highway.
Free!
Cons: As other reviewers have noted - this course has a large amount of trees waiting to grab your drive and throw it far from the fairway.
Signage is not current, and can be hard to navigate if it is your first time playing.
Other Thoughts: In playing this course you will often have looks that you have never seen on certain holes before, which I prefer to look at as a form of added variety. Multiple pin locations can change the character of each hole. Overall a fun course to play.

Pros: Easy to navigate - It is very easy to find your way around this course. The next tee is usually very easy to find from each basket.

Nice baskets - The baskets are in very good shape.

Beautiful setting - Nice woodsy feel with a river running through makes for a very nice setting.

Relatively few bugs - I didn't even need bug spray and never got bit.

Trash cans and benches - Every tee had a seat of some sort and there were plenty of trash cans to keep the litter to a minimum.
Cons: Too condensed - A lot of holes on this course are very close to others. It's very easy to end up in the fairway or even in the putting area for a different hole. Definitely need to keep your head on a swivel on crowded days.

Limited signage - The fact that there are signs is a plus, but some are missing and the ones that are there aren't a particularly good illustration of the hole.

Too many trees - There are some fairways that have a few too many trees in the middle. Rather than being an interesting challenge to the hole, they end up being a guard that only lets the lucky shots through. A little bit of tree removal would be nice.
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed my first time on this course. It's not a hugely daunting course which made for a nice relaxed afternoon round. It did get really crowded and we were stuck in a backup with groups in front and behind us, but from what I hear, that's very unusual.

There also seemed to be a lot of beginners on the course. I don't list this as a positive or negative. I don't mind playing behind a slower beginner group, especially on the nice day we had. But be aware that there a number of players out there still learning the basics.
