Pros: Lots of great shots and beautiful holes. All of the tee boxes were very usable, even the dirt ones
I enjoyed playing this course. Reminded me of Pike Lake in Ohio
Cons: Huge bees nest just to the right of the basket on hole 5. It is located at the end of a log. By the time I realized it was there, I had been stung 4-5 times. Be careful!

 Challenging, technical but fun

Pros: Good hole variety in terms of shape and length. I liked the up and down nature of the course. Nice tee boxes and signage. The woods make for a fun challenge as basically all of my drives went straight into trees. Fun hiking around. Very navigable.
Cons: Not much room for cranking drives, none of the holes are very wide open. Some of the fairways are ridiculously tight with the trees. basically luck in some cases.
Other Thoughts: I wouldn't want to play this course all the time as it's somewhat frustrating not being able to throw any open, far shots. But the trees and changing altitude make for fun, challenging holes and the scenery is pretty as well. Would definitely recommend checking it out.

Also the sign at the front says that the back 9 is coming soon, but all 18 holes are completed at this point.

Pros: -All tee signs are VERY nice and new
-Most holes have concrete tee pads, the rest are being installed in the future (we could see outline)
-Paths are well marked/cleared, obvious to see where you are going
-Easy to find course, since it's a small park. Nice sign with map
-Holes 13 and 14 are GREAT, as you throw over a big ravine.
-Nice variety of short and long holes, as well as straight aways and curves
-Not TOO much brush, discs pretty easy to find
-All holes are seeable from the tee, for the most part
-Park right off Merritt Parkway
-Course is 3 minutes away from a nice DG store in Wallingford
-Lots of elevation changes, as well as some flat ground holes
Cons: -You can't get back to the parking lot from Hole 9 easily, as it's right in the middle of the woods. (Tip: You can play 11, then cut down a path to 18)
-As you get towards the final few holes, the paths aren't as clear, but I'm assuming that will be fixed.
-LOTS of walking up and down hills (can be good and bad)
-No Rec Tees
-Not much to do in park, just one baseball field
Other Thoughts: This course is a great alternative sister course to Panthorn, as it provides different challenges, like elevation and a peaceful atmosphere. It's also cool having a store 3 minutes away, in case you lose any discs. The front nine goes pretty quick, as the holes are very technical. Once you get the back nine, the real challenge (and fun) starts. I highly recommend this course to anyone in CT, and I believe in a few years it could be one of the best courses in CT, maybe New England.

Pros: Great terrain makes for many varied holes. Elevation changes on almost every hole really define this course and add to the challenge. Some of the holes shooting over the ravine on the back 9 are very cool. Tee signs on every hole and navigation between holes is very easy.
For a wooded course, the fairways were just the right size. Not so large that anything will get through, but not so small that even a good straight shot needs a little luck. And the brush off the fairways isn't bad at all. You won't be chasing after a bad throw/carom worried about whether you'll ever see your plastic again.
Cons: Not many real cons, unless you don't like the woods (you won't find any open field shots here).
I had a little trouble finding the first hole, there's no obvious course sign by the parking area (it's to the left of the baseball field).
Other Thoughts: I haven't been, but there's a disc golf store right in town, OTC disc golf, which could be helpful if you break/lose any of your favorite discs!
Overall, another great new addition to CT disc golf!

Pros: Awesome terrain
Great Views
good layout
woodsy but not dense
Challenging play
Cons: Very challenging play
Serious steep uphills be in good shape
Gully of holes 12-14 if not mistaken can be a bit ridiculus but if you have an arm good fun
Direction from some holes a little confusing 8 and i think seventeen or eighteen
Not to many pads but not a big deal to me.
Other Thoughts: WOuld love to be the guy with house on top of hill by hole 8 epic views i am sure.
WIth some better signage and some more step building or trail maintenance on holes 12-14 the place would be among the best in ct. It would also be nice to get a little more views by cutitng some trees by a big field.

Great job to the volunteers who are bulding the back nine.
Again if you have bad knees or am out of shape back 9 can be taxing

Toilet not open late season.....so ah my bad

Pros: So much potential here. It's still in progress. Some tees are poured and other have yet to be done. I'm going to assume that they all get poured in the near future and raise this course to a 3.5. Plenty of fantastic holes with the highlight being a few that cross back and forth over a valley. On these the tee and basket sit at a much higher elevation then the ground inbetween. You can attempt to make it all the way across for a chance at birdie but if a tree knocks the disc down, you are suddenly looking at a long climb to the pin. (Like a mini-Richmond Hill) I love this type of hole. So much exhilaration as the disc bends around the last tree en route to the opposite high ground.
There's quite a bit of elevation here beyond the valley holes and it is all good stuff. Real disc golf elevation holes, that well-thought out flight paths can take advantage of. There aren't lot of sudden drops or overly steep climbs. (unless you go off course) I love those dramatic drop-offs from an aesthetic point of view but throwing wise, I prefer the more gradual descents that are present here. They allow the shot to be not just a drop but a coolly curving drop that bends to the right or left around a line of trees.
For a new course, the navigation is surprisingly intuitive. Often, that is one of the last things to be added to a course, but visitors should find their way around without a problem. The course is in remarkable shape for such a new project with the fairways pretty well established and the rough manageable.
Cons: Sometimes, it's hard to find cons for an unfinished course, because you don't know what's about to be fixed. Typically, I can always find something to put in cons, even for my favorite courses. But on a new place this, with so much potential, I will have to leave cons to those who play the finished version. I'll only say that, yeah, it's not finished yet and while it is already a solid play, the true value is still in the potential.
Other Thoughts:
If Lufberry continues to improve it should challenge Cranbury for the number two course in the state. The elevation available on site is just that good.

 Potential to be one of the best in CT

Pros: -Excellent use of elevation change. A lot of the holes are up, down, around, and you're often not just shooting up or down, but also left or right, further adding to the awesomeness of seeing your disc hit a tight gap.

-Chainstar baskets are in great shape.

-Paths between holes are very well marked. Never a doubt where you're going.

-Located in a beautiful park in Wallingford, CT. Sleeping Giant State Park is right down the street, so the course + the park makes for an excellent day trip

- Has a very 'clean' feel. Fairways are very clear and obvious, and you can see the gaps that the course designer had in mind when making the course for almost all the holes. Brush and thorns are mostly cleared away if you happen to stray off the fairways.
-Some holes just feel epic because of the elevation change and the challenge. The course does a great job of making almost every hole feel important.
-A lot of really fun shots:
#8 is a cool short risk reward hole, with the pin perched on the edge of a cliff. Forehand line goes away from the cliff, but there are trees in the way. Backhand line hyzers toward the cliff, but is a little more open.
#12 is my personal favorite hole on the course. A HUGE downhill swooping right to left shot with a beautifully laid out green.
#13 is a great set up hole for #14. Very short, over an ENORMOUS canyon through a narrow gap. Super technical.
#14 is easily the signature hole on the course. You have to pure about a 10-15 foot gaps across a canyon, then you play through a clearing to a pin drilled straight into an enormous rock, to create a naturally elevated pin.

Cons: -Tee pads on a bunch of holes. The locals have done a great job installing concrete pads out here.

-TIGHT. A lot of holes are honestly just one tree away from being perfect, although taking down trees is easier said than done.

-Some odd fairway shapes. You'll need to use your imagination a little bit to get from A to B.

-Bathrooms are locked up.

-No open holes. There are definitely holes where you can unleash a big drive, but if you miss your gap you're gonna have a bad time.
Other Thoughts: -Feels a lot like Page Park, in Bristol. A lot of really fun shots and a lot of birdie shots, but any hole can ruin your round if you're not careful.

 Good work in progress

Pros: Course is shaping up very nicely. A very technical course - a lot of narrow fairways and woods that can be tough to get out of. The front 9 is the closest to finished - some holes without tee boxes, but all have signs that are clear and very helpful. The back nine has its fairways set, but no tee boxes or signs in place yet. However, they have placed ribbons to lead you from one hole to the next. There are some great holes in the back nine that would be a shame to miss - 13/14 are especially fun, especially if an errant tree jumps in the way of your disc!

Course is always quiet, even on weekends. Also makes for a great hike with plenty of hills and walking between holes.
Cons: Still a work in progress - will be even better when all the signs are in place. Some of the tee boxes are uneven, have rocks, roots, etc - hopefully this will change, but there is room to throw safely even with the obstacles.
Other Thoughts: Another good CT course - offers a real challenge to newer players.

 Fun Tough Course

5+    9/25/2013   1/27/2014
Review By: DPGRAY1962
Played: 13  Reviewed: 8  Exp: 5.4 Years
Pros: Ample free parking. Some fun, challenging holes with lots of trees. Played often during the week and seldom saw others on the course.
Cons: Long walks between some of the holes. Enough brush and fallen trees to make a lost disc possible.
Other Thoughts: Have not played since the other 9 holes were added. With a full 18 this course definitely should be checked out.
