There were 70 people last year and we expect more this year but you should be fine signing up there. Just get there early and practice.

I'd agree. Technical/good shots and lots of hills. Weird town though.

Did they try to sell you a matching outfit and have you drink some Kool-Aid?


Just wanted to echo AO and Clue's statements. Fun little course with some challenging putting opportunities.

Always love playing this course. First time on the newer holes..(How long have they been around?) That wind made the course play several strokes harder. Had a blast and will be back.

The original 9 holes went in the ground in 1988. I designed the course along with Fred Ward (RIP) and Doug Brown from Fairfield. They were about the only disc golfers in Fairfield at that time. Holes 1 & 2 are still the same and Holes 12 through 18, used to be holes 3 through 9. The original baskets were made by Tri-State and featured white plastic chains which were weighted down by a "donut" similar to what a hitter in the on deck circle puts on his bat for practice swings. They did not work very well at all because putts would blast through the plastic chains about all of the time. I ran PDGA Events there from 1989 through 1993 and we usually had a 12 or 15 hole layout.
They finally got good Innova targets on the original 9 in about 2000. Billy Haynes from Fairfield designed the new holes and they went in about 2010.

Player's were real troopers, the wind and cold were brutal. Still a good turn out. And a good time.
