Pros: Very good mix of open and wooded holes. Clean place, well maintained. The open holes really give you a chance to test your arm and the wooded holes gauge your accuracy. Looks like the owners are always trying to improve the course.
Cons: The first few holes feel a little redundant, you're kind of teeing off and driving through the same row of trees from the opposite side. Still a newer course, a couple of the wooded holes need to be broken in more before there is a good flow.
Other Thoughts: Bring waterproof footwear!

Pros: Breaks from the Maine norm of fairways cut out of the woods. This course is a long open course created off the hillside of old farm land. Breathtaking views of the mountains. This is not just a field course, it is very well designed with large tee pads and great use of trees and rock wall outcrops. Being a very new course this is shaping up to be one of Maine's finest.
Cons: Drainage was always the issue in its first two years, these problems have been mostly resolved and continue to get better everytime out. Signage and finishing touches are all this course needs!

Favorite course in the state
Pros: This is my favorite course in the state. Although Sabattus and others are great, SMV does it for me. I love the layout, open opportunities to rip some drives and the balance of the variety of holes, towards the middle of the course.
Tim, the owner, is a great guy. Talk to him about his course and he'll share lots of details about his plans for upgrades over the next few years to make it even better than what it is.
For any travelers visiting our state, I highly recommend this course. The country hillside and views you get while playing really represent our beautiful state well.
Over the past year, concrete teepads have been put in for 17 out of 18 holes.
Although it's a great course, it's not extremely popular as of this writing. I've never had to wait for groups in front or had them come up behind me.
Cons: The biggest con with the course is the wetness of it. There are several areas that are awful during the winter and the few months of thawing out afterwards. You WILL need rain boots or your sneakers will get soaked on several spots.
The signs for each hole are not up and some of them are inaccurate (slightly) for where the previous tee pads were. It's not a bother as you can see many of the baskets from the tee bad, but it would be nice for newbies to the course if the signs were better.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I love this course The Pros far outweigh the Cons. If you have an opportunity to play here, grab your distance drivers, hit the course, and thank me later!

A Nice Addition to the Maine Disc Golf Scene
Pros: The course is nicely designed to ballence playability with challenge. Although most holes are fairly open and use the undulating landscape or sparse trees to define the hole, there is a nice wooded section of about 6 holes which adds some variety and challenge.
The baskets are beautiful new Innova Discatchers, the frequent choice of courses in this part of the world. There are signs directing you to each teebox.
The layout is well done with, very few walkouts to speak of, and good buffers between different fairways and greens. The course is well ballenced in terms of shot shape and hole distances. Also there are three legitimate two drive holes, one early and in the woods, with two more in the final stretch of holes. I had a great time playing even with the temperatures well below freezing and the back of my hands numb. My girlfriend just walked but also said she'd come back to play which is always a plus as far as I'm concerned. Overall I was impressed with this course and will play it more.
Cons: Many of thhis fairways in the field were solid Ice beneath the grass so I imagine the course floods and can't be played in wet conditions.
No improved tee pads are in yet and simply flagged. The addition of improved tee pads will make my rating go up at least a half disc.
