Pros: Clean and quiet. A mainly wooded course layed out with variing degrees of difficulty, elevation changes and distances. Marty is doing a great job. Jarod and I were the first to play Hole 13 tee. Nice rubber on alot of stone dust. He has definatly put alot of time, hard work and money into this coure. It shows! Well done.
Cons: Usual blood sucking vermin.

Long walk to Hole 1
Other Thoughts: Great course. If a few more small trees were removed and maybe additional lanes on a couple holes it would be awsome.

Pros: Challenging course, great environment, loaner discs, wood chips around baskets and on walking path to next tee box and nice tee boxes being completed.
Cons: There isn't too much to complain about besides if you're having an "off" day the course can become frustrating and some holes could have less trees.
Other Thoughts: I've been playing here for about 4 months now since I live less than 10min away and this course gets better every time I play. From what I've been told about last year, which was the first year being open, the course has made significant improvements!

Pros: Many varied shots
Good use of terrain
Well Cared for
Friendly Owner
Cons: The tee pads are rough. But new ones were going in the day we played.
Other Thoughts: Marty has done a fantastic job with this course! Most of the older reviews are no longer valid. There has been allot of clearing trimming and chipping around this entire course. There are challenges for all skill levels. And Marty was installing the first rubber Tee Pads while we were there. The pads will certainly bump this courses rating.

Pros: Very good flow to the course, I like courses that are easy to navigate,The course forces you to play hard and challenge yourself at every hole
Cons: The course is brand new, so not everything is well manicured. I see big improvement every time I play here, so probably want be a con much longer.The tee box's are natural and could stand a little better maintenance
Other Thoughts: I am glad that there is a course in the middle of NH and that the owners are totally dedicated to the sport

 Fun but rough

Pros: The course plays through dense woods with some nice elevation changes. A few holes have steeper hills that add some nice challenges, and many have minor elevation that keeps it interesting. The course is challenging from the longer tees, but offers shorter tees on many holes to offer more reasonable shots for newer players.

There is a good mix of hole lengths, from ace runs to multi-shot par 4s that call for a couple accurate shots through the woods to get near the pin. The fairways have good variety of left and right turning shots. The signs are basic but informative enough with hole layout and distance. The flow is easy to follow other than a little confusion after 12. The baskets are in great shape, and still looked basically new.
Cons: The course is still pretty rough, though there were lots of signs of recent clearing. The woods are dense with lots of thick underbrush, so I can imagine it's a huge job to keep up with. That said, some of the fairways were a bit overgrown and many still have small stumps waiting to trip you up. The tees are a bit rough as well, many showed some signs of erosion and rutting.
Other Thoughts: With a little cleaning and clearing, this course has the potential to be a really fun challenge with harsh but fair punishment for missing your line. Despite the shorter set of tees, beginners will still find this course pretty tight and punitive which could be frustrating to some. More experienced players will find some nice tests here, though it can get a bit repetitive in certain parts of the course.

Pros: Wanted to take a moment to thank Marty of Top 'o' Hill disc golf. Being a recovering stroke victim, and your passion for disc golf has gotten me out alot more.Thank you. Your course is pleasure to play. I like seeing how you are keeping things as natural. Seeing the birds in the trees,chip-monks on the stumps and the great tasting berries under the roughs.Your getting me hooked on the game. keep up the good work!! I play all the time now!!!
I take my time, but,a good time it is!! 13-15 are hard, as a disabled person.
Cons: Bugs spray and water needed!! Make sure you have water!!
Other Thoughts: Good people also!!

  Not worth $5 yet

Pros: Course is challenging, and many tight fairways test your accuracy and punish mistakes, even small ones. Signs are not bad, and also baskets are brand new which is always nice.
Course is easy to find, only a few minutes off the highway. Requires a decent variety of shots.
Cons: Though the course layout overall is not bad, the fairways are all very overgrown with weeds and brush and many tree stumps which makes walking the course a struggle, and also leaves good shots with difficult footing for the next.
Most of the holes you cannot see the basket from the tee, forcing you to walk down the length of the overgrown fairway, find a landmark, go back to the tee and throw.
Pay to play, not worth the $5. It is a new course and has potential to be worth it in a few years, but not yet
Other Thoughts: Overall ok, but not worth $5. I live in Manchester NH and this is the closest course to me. I will probably choose Muldoon over Top o' The Hill next time.
Also "pro shop" is just a trailer.
Biggest negative was the overgrown fairways.

Pros: This a great course for when you're really looking for a challenge. There is a nice mix of long holes that test your arm and shorter technical holes that force you to consider shot selection very carefully.

There are a number of nice par 4 holes that require two shots to reach the green. These holes really require a sharp mental game to play your tee shot to the right place to set up a second shot to reach the green.

Most fairways are well defined and clear, with good signage with shape and distance.

Navigation is generally very easy aside from one trick spot (see below).
Cons: Anything off the fairway is punished severely. The rough on most holes is very thick. Not only is it easy to lose discs, but a tee shot even a few feet off the fairway leaves a par save very unlikely. Although this isn't necessarily a bad thing, narrow fairways with very few defined landing areas on par fours make it worse. Even a good straight shot can end up in the rough if it fades a little too much at the end. Tall trees prevent wide shots designed to fade back to the fairway, so dead straight is the only safe option.

A few holes need some tree removal. 1 and 13 particularly. There's too much luck involved on these holes.

After hole 12, the most prominent tee is actually 16. The 13th tee hides behind it. It's very easy to miss 13 and play 16 instead as I did. I only realized I'd missed three holes after holing out 600 feet down the trail.

The short tees don't offer much relief to the less experienced player. Nor do they provide a distinctly different look for the experience player. It would be nice to see a more beginner friendly layout.
Other Thoughts: This course will definitely challenge all aspects of your game. You have to be strong mentally and physically through all 18 holes.

Bring water and bug spray for sure.

The on-site pro shop is nothing more than a camper with a few racks. When I was there the stock was completely depleted. It looked like they mostly carry basic DX discs.

Pros: spread out, scenic
Cons: fairways need trimmed to play...
Other Thoughts: this is a decent course, but still way to many trees in the fairways. should be a free course until they finish working on it ... not worth 5 dollars to play ...
