On the small side, but has a lot of potential
Pros: This course has a variety of open and wooded holes, this course has a variety of short and long holes. This course is rather young and doesn't have a large following...but that can make it feel like your own private course.
I also like some of the character of many of the holes on this course, there are a few small wooden bridges to throw across, without water below when I've been there, and the trails have a lot of rock in them so they're never too muddy.
Cons: I've only been there on two days, but I think this course probably needs a few more volunteers to help maintain the grounds, a few holes were a bit over grown, and a few signs were hard to find because of growth.
A few of the holes on open fields are a bit too open, not a lot going on, but this is only about 3 holes, two of which are on opposite sides of each other.
Other Thoughts: I like this course a lot, I think it has a TON of potential.
I think that with a little bit of promotion to the community, leading to a bit more popularity...the course could be improved because the extra attention would help out volunteerism and keep the place active.
I've played this course 5 or 6 times now over the past month. I'm really starting to love this course. People are pushing to make it an 18 hole course by (at latest) the end of next season. The course is getting walked in a little bit and the crazy foliage is starting to fade. This course is aging well into the late season and I can't wait to play in the fall. Bring some friends, bring a lunch, play twice if you need 18 holes. And myself and firefinger and a few others are always open to a friendly game!

Pros: A fun short course that has good signs and is easy to navigate. Even though most holes are on the short side the designers made good use of existing trees that you must work around. Great place to introduce the sport to newbies and a good spot to practice with your mid rangers and approach discs if you've got a great arm and think this course is too short for you.
Cons: It's only 9 baskets. No long hole where you can really rip it. Mosquitos were troubling but given this summer weather there's been a number of mosquitos whenever I've been in woods.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't go out of your way from Rochester to only play this course, but make a good day of it to visit the wine country and play some disc golf.

a great finesse course
Pros: Naples community park course is a great short course to work on your short game with one 420 yard hole to stretch out on. A great place to play in the fingerlakes!!
Cons: mosquito's bring your clove oil or off as its layed back in the trees and it's a new course so grass is filling in ect...
Other Thoughts: I think a back 9 with longer holes for advanced players is in the plans for next season...

nice to play a new course
Pros: its sweet that those people who they mentioned took the time and money to open this one. we loved it, every hole is fun, theres only one long one and yes its 420 feet...always cool
Cons: the bugs were there, they wanted my girlfriend more than me, it plays real quick, kind of a con not really
Other Thoughts: thanks so much for the cool course, my dad had a cabin in south bristol, near naples, and if this course would have been there when i got dragged to the cabin every weekend that would've been great

Short & Sweet
Pros: Good signage and easy to navigate. A few holes have nice wooden signs to point you to the next tee when it's not immediately apparent which direction you have to go. You'll probably never have to fight a crowd here either as the course is pretty remote.
Cons: No tee pads and many fairways consist of mostly dirt and rocks. The ground was also fairly soft and muddy in a few places so I'd imagine after a good rain it would be pretty messy here. Also, any sort of formal parking was a good walk from the course. I noticed people parking in the grass near the first tee so I followed suit.
The course's length is something many may consider a con. Most holes clock in at under 200ft.
Other Thoughts: This course was designed as a rec. course for the most part and if you go in expecting that you won't be disappointed. Despite its short length, many holes at least had some element of challenge so even if you're throwing 150ft. you may have some trees or doglegs to contend with. The course was just put in when I played here (grand opening was 6/27/09) so the dirt/rock fairways may fill in a bit with grass in the coming months.
Overall, I had an enjoyable round here and hopefully it will get some locals into the sport. The course is far from pretty much everything so unless you're going to Naples or passing very, very close by I wouldn't recommend the lengthy detour that would be required to play here. On the other hand, if you're in the immediate area then I'd say it's worth 30-45 minutes of your time to play a round or two.

Hidden in Wine Country
Pros: well designed with a nice amount of trees. Enough trees to create a challenge, but not too frustrating.
Easy to navigate with decent signage.
Small white markers made tees easy to find.
Cons: SHORT. No tee pads, just mud. Only 9 holes, and only one set of tees. All Par 3.
Course is far from everything. Well over an hour from Basil and 45 minutes from Letchworth State Park.
Other Thoughts: Hole one starts to the right of the wooden building. There are some signs on the trees to guide you, but it is not difficult to find.
I added the hole info, but I forgot hole 6
Several of the holes are tightly wooded, the longest hole is just over 400, but the sides are out of bounds so its still more of a finess course.
To get to the course turn right at bob and Ruths Vinyard Lounge and ice cream parlor. and the course is in the park about a half mile down the road.
The coordinates I got were
N 42 37.519
W 77 23.175
