Pros: Major improvement over the first few times I played there. Signs were updated to let you know where the next holes were and tee pads were looking great. Baskets were replaced I believe since the very first time I played. The improvements will definitely entice me to go there more often. First time I played a few years ago was bad if you weren't familiar with the course. Now it's much better to navigate and very clean.
Cons: Some holes are a little back and forth and over lapping, but good use of the space available. Just keep your head up on some holes. People sometimes do not care that you are there to play and stand in the middle of fairways just doing nothing. Mostly children, but it's a free course in a town park.
Other Thoughts: Looking so much better than the first time I played it. I don't throw over water a lot, but these water holes are confidence boosters while offering some challenge. Especially 17 where too much hyzer or a bad roll will send you into the water (RHBH).
Thanks to the guys improving Amesbury!

Pros: -Beautiful Area to play
-Brand new patio brick tees and chainstar baskets
-Brand new signs for every tee
-The course offers a good variety in both distance and the types of throws you need to make.
-Course is very well maintained.
-Fairways are defined and there are markers the middle of the fairways that show the direction to the basket.
Cons: -Can be a little confusing to someone who has never played the course.
-Fairways criss-cross each other.
-Some poison ivy but not enough to be a major concern.
Other Thoughts: This course is a fairly short course to play through it only takes about an hour. I think that one of the best things you can say about a course is that it is fun and this course is just that, fun. Overall, I like this course and I still go back and play there all the time.

Pros: I play this course just about everyday. All the holes have a decent distance anywhere from 250-390 feet. The tee-boxes have been recently fixed up, and are now cement. If you knew the course before these new boxes, you would know how much the new ones improved the course. 13/18 holes on this course are played through woods. Lots of trees, makes it a real challenge. The layout is decent, but unique. Great use of space with the amount given. Hole 17 was recently changed, the basket has moved much closer to the water which makes a real challenge. Hole 16, 17, and 18 all involve water and add a great challenge to the game.
Cons: Tons of trees, a few tee boxes still aren't great, fairways overlap others.
Other Thoughts: You will meet a ton of nice people here, everyones friendly and for begginers, there are many experienced players who are more than willing to give you a few tips.

Pros: Enjoyable course layout. Compact play allows quicker rounds. Clear undergrowth, no chance of loosing discs, unless u drop one in the small ponds.
Cons: Erosion issues on some tees (safety issue, almost rolled an ankle). Wear boots. While course is 95% clear, there is some poison ivy. Hole layouts are confusing first time thru.
Other Thoughts: I'll play this course often, met some friendly regulars who let me jump in with them.

Pros: Nice mix of woods and open field shots. Two great water-crossing shots get the pucker factor up. Nice use of space and good elevation changes. Plenty of parking. Holes that stand out: Holes 4 and 15, if you overshoot your putt or approach shots on these holes you may find yourself down the very steep hill in the road, or the neighbor's yard to retrieve your disc. Some choose to lay up here instead of going for it. Holes 16 and 18 are great water-crossing shots. 16 is a bit easier to clear. On 18, do you lay-up or go for it? Holes 3 and 4 have a cool little valley you need to clear. Hole 4 tee-box, look for the bottle opener. Nice touch!
Cons: In summer the park can get quite crowded. The proximity to the high school can often be an issue with vandalism and trash. Could be a 4 star course if tee boxes and baskets were updated.
Other Thoughts: No facilities here, no bathrooms and not many trash cans. There are some great pubs in town though to visit after your round. Also, Amesbury Skate and Sport on Route 110 carry a small selection of Innova discs for sale.

I recently created and added laminated tee-box information cards to each hole, they are the same images that I uploaded to this site. Hopefully they last the summer. Enjoy and I hope they help.
