A must play!
Pros: Private course - not being able to play this course freely makes playing it that much better. Beautiful scenery.
Layout - Tight technical play. Put your drivers away folks, you may only throw three drives in an entire round here. Plenty of birdie opportunities with a well placed mid range shot. Plenty of Double bogie opportunities when an otherwise well placed shot misses its line. A few water hazards to beware of making for some excellent hole layouts (18, over the river!)
Multiple Baskets - It was clear from the extra PVC pipes sticking out of the ground that many of the holes move from time to time. I only played the 1 layout but nice to see that next year it will probably be different.
Cons: Layout - Bring your hiking boots. This may not be a con for a lot of people, but don't expect an easy walk through this one. Very hilly, very wooded.
Baskets - Old baskets, some rusty, shallow baskets, a few chains don't sit right here or there. Not a huge deal, just something to be aware of when throwing at them.
Benches - None? I don't remember any, and certainly sat on the ground a few times. With the tiring terrain this would be an excellent addition.
Tee boxes - No mats, not that it was a huge problem. Most tees packed smooth dirt, but a fair number had roots/rocks to deal with.
Other Thoughts: A must play if you ever get the opportunity. Respect the course and don't go without permission.
Watch out for that nasty hill on 1. Rolling down that spells disaster.
Having an overstable mid range will save your life.

Pros: Fun course, tight fairways. Stepping back in time, old baskets and signage all working great. Bonus: 9 pin putting game
Cons: Private course only open for tournaments. Hard to find gps or not it's not on the map

Hunt's Mild 18
Pros: First and foremost there is ample parking. This is crucial because you are on private property and the NEFA NH States tourney is held there. There are nine practice baskets: which are set up like a game. You get various points for depending on which basket you make it in. The game is called around 9 putting. Each hole offers multiple pin positions (although there is only one basket per hole). They are all in the same area, but do offer the ability to change your approach each time. The paths between the holes and fairways are very clearly marked and easy to navigate through the woods. The hills (most holes alternate up and down) offer a great array of shots from the tee that you normally don't get. The fairways are nice and open, with clearly designed rough. There is a third set of chains added to the Mach II baskets. Short holes (longest is 320`) make a quick round very plausible.
Cons: The largest and most glaring detraction of the course is the tee boxes. Fortunately there is a lack of big arm holes as they are all wooded, finesse shots so a run-up isn't really necessary. The tee boxes need to be flattened and worked on as more than half of them have tree roots sticking out and are dangerous. The red stakes that mark the front line also need to be repainted and pulled up out of the ground. Lots of the tee signs are chipping and peeling (this might have something to do with the date on the signs - 1980). The course is only open to the public one week a year; the week before NH States. Unless you want to pee in the woods there are no public bathrooms. there is no signage in between holes. some holes will require some hunting. some of the tee pads are almost on top of the last basket. While this could be dangerous the course is very lonely so I doubt you will have any issues.
Other Thoughts: The course is closed during winter time to make room for the cross country course that is on the same property. When you finish hole 5 turn around for tee 6. Hole 9 is across the road and to the right. Hole 10 is near where you park. There is a very nice little creek that runs through several holes and adds a certain beauty to the course that I am not used to.
