Pros: Challenging holes on the back 9! Great signage and layout. Very easy to navigate!
Cons: Very hilly on the back 9. If you’re not up for a hike may want to pass.

Pros: *update 5/20 Back 9 is complete including several longer holes and par 4's a nice contrast to front nine which is classic New England par 3s. Fun, technical, mostly wooded course but with a mix; some very tight lines on 3, 8 , 9 and 12, more open lanes on 4 and 5, throwing from open into woods on 2, 7 and 11, a low tunnel shot into the open on 6, and a couple open shots to let her rip on 1 and 10. 6 new holes being added spring /summer 2019. This course was newly established in 2016 and has already worn in nicely with plenty of "course maintenance". Free. Open year round. Practice basket to the right of kiosk/first tee.
Nice gravel/surpak tee pads (2 on almost all holes), good signage, nice baskets and good course flow. Mostly ok for carts, but with a couple of tricky spots. Well maintained with ongoing improvements. Sweet chainsaw carved benches throughout! Carry in/carry out, very clean course, please help keep it that way, thanks! Nearby toilets/porta potties at pool and ball field (in season).
Cons: May not test the biggest arms (*see update above) but you'll need most of your bag and a variety of shots to score well.
Not necessarily a con but with a few blind baskets you may want a spotter if you're new to the course.
Potential for lost discs with narrow lines, blind shots and leaf litter/undergrowth at times.
Other Thoughts: Check it out if you're in the area or playing nearby Magic or even Otter Brook. This is an undiscovered gem of a course, it's free and very little traffic!

Great For A Quick Game
Pros: The Course features Green and Black Tees on each hole, with Gravel Tees. The course is both fun and challenging with a few open holes, and other narrow holes which take you through the woods.
Cons: There's really no Cons except hopefully they get new permanent signage soon, as a few of the signs are suffering from water damage.
Other Thoughts: Scenic location with a few holes running along old Ski Slope.

A lot of intention went into this course
Pros: A lot of intention went into this course. The design is great and its really amazing how much variety and interesting play they got on a course that does not have 800 ft holes. It left me wanting more after 9, so I'm stoked to hear a back 9 are in the works. Hope there are a couple bombers to compliment the well crafted woods play.
Cons: A few trees could come down on a couple holes. The tee signs showed a few lanes that were really luck dependent. The specific holes i'm thinking of would still be cool, but the gaps need to be widened to be actual lanes.

Pros: Surprisingly Challenging, Tunnels & Turns, Well Maintained, multiple tee boxes both work to separate hard core throwers from lesser experienced but also awesome for doubling threw to play 18.
Cons: Can't think of any cons there. It's a newer course that they keep improving.
Other Thoughts: I enjoy the way the B (green) tee pads parallel the A (blacks) tees so I have the option of playing agressive to beat my scores & remain along side my kids if they want a calmer approach. Nice year round hike without too much climbing. All around great experience

Challenging, well maintained, 18 hole course New England style course
Pros: The Chester course is a classic, well maintained and well-laid out New England-style course. At 5,900'+, the challenging, mostly wooded holes are not super-long, but they do require a balanced combination of both finesse and power. Some fairway lines are pretty tight, others are more open. Undulating terrain adds an element of strategy to shot placements, as side hill lies and baskets can often lead to roll-aways and birdie-to-bogie scores in a flash.
The course has a nicely designed information kiosk, practice basket and excellent signage and walking paths between holes. Two framed, gravel tee boxes per hole dot the Front 9 (Pro-Black and Novice-Green) with a few ALT tee boxes as well. The Back 9 features a variety of challenging holes as the course climbs to the relatively flat summit of the pinnacle. Most of the B9 fairways wind through tall pine tree stands, before culminating on hole #18 and a sharp downhill approach to a basket located just uphill of the recently restored picnic pavilion. There are a handful of unique, hand carved wooden benches scattered throughout the course - a nice feature.
Any disc golfer will enjoy and appreciate the beauty, flow, challenge and shot shaping required to score on this course. Definitely worth checking out.
Cons: Minor selective thinning and pruning needed (on-going) to establish multiple throwing lanes to the basket.
Other Thoughts: This is a really enjoyable course to play in the heart of Chester, VT.

Nice country 9 hole.
Pros: Another beautiful 9 hole. It is classic New England with elevation and tight lanes that reward finesse and planning over power. Nice tees.
Cons: Its a new course and could use another cut in places and more pole sawing. But I am sure that will come.
Other Thoughts: Fun destination course as part of a day trip. Make part of VT disc golf trip. Make sure to hit up the Pizza Stone while in town!!
