Pros: good shor course with remarkabble changes in elevation for such a small course,course is design is nice
Cons: very swampy conditions, baskets rusted and in bad shape, a few holes poorly marked, way too much growth,not very well marked and not great tee pads
Other Thoughts: not bad if your close but a ride to sugarbush is worth it

Pros: *Beautiful setting in a city park with mix of open & wooded, slightly hilly landscape; features an awesome stream on a few of the holes in the middle
*Great views of the green mtns
*2 sets of tees - white & blue
*A lot of potential if it was trimmed up -- notably the hole before you get down to the stream (#8?) that is a short hole throwing down a steep hill...blind now & very easy to lose a disc, but would be awesome if you could see where you were throwing
*Easy to find
*Near Ben & Jerry's icecream factory!
Cons: *No signage - while there were a few signs remaining from a May '08 tourney, most had just the tee markers & numbers -- no distances or visuals of what the hole looked like
*Many blind teeshots - on 4 or 5 holes I had to walk down the length of the fairway to figure out where I was throwing, which sucks when the hole loses 50+ feet in elevation and you have to walk back up to throw - several are blind to the point of errant shots resulting in lost discs
*Very overgrown. Knee high grass on many holes; i was losing discs in the fairway. On several of the holes trees must have been small when the fairway was designed & have grown tall blocking any realistic shot -- needs some serious trimming
*Baskets in bad shape for being installed only 6 years ago -- already completely rusted out; maybe this is a northern thing due to the weather?
*Mostly dirt teepads -- some were on natural rock & a few pads. I played in the rain and footing was not great.
Other Thoughts: I played blue tees & shot a 54 with plenty of birdies & bogeys. It's a short par-3 course with only a few holes 350'+. Some very good short holes with tight lines & nice tee/basket spots.

This course has potential to be a lot better, mainly with some heavy trimming -- a lot of the holes had no lines or ran a high probability of losing a disc because they were overgrown & blind. There were also many holes requiring a walk down a fairway to see the basket, then having to walk back to throw.

I'd play again, but more to walk around in the beautiful park than for the course
