Near to me is one at Pomfret recreation park right off of route 97. It a fun and good for a beginner. Only 9 holes and not too challenging. There is one in Thomson but I have not been there yet.
Hyland Orchard in Sturbridge MA. Has a pretty challenging full on 18 holes. Starts in woods and ends in the orchard behind petting zoo. They held Disc jam there this year. I hope they continue to do so.
Friend wants me to play Tolland. I will tell you about it after I do.

It's a fun way to get outdoors and get a little exercise. Still a beginner myself as I don't have much time to play. Turned my buddy and his girl on to it 4 months ago. He goes almost every nice day and has surpassed my skill level. He wants to go pro.:smile:

I went to Hyland for discjam, been getting into disc golf since. Never played there but I checked out the course and it looks great. I fried quite a few folks on hole 9 (going into the woods) as it's right next to a convenient hidy spot. Hippie hazard on hole 9!

I played half a game at West Thompson Lake in North Grosvenordale CT. It was getting dark and my fail skillz were slowing down the vets I was playing with. Beautiful course though, absolutely gorgeous scenery. I definitely want to go back after honing my skills some more.

I mostly throw my putter in my backyard into a trashcan or practice driving at my local city park. I imagine people wonder " Why does that fat guy keep throwing that little frisbee into the woods and swear about it?"

There is a 9 hole in Ninigret Park in Charlsetown RI, but I heard it's pretty lame and not worth checking out unless you are very close.

I want to do West Thompson soon. Buying myself 3 baskets for x-mas. for the next three years. Think I have the room to set-up a nice little course. I am looking at portable ones. Practice at Vibes!

Me Bizzle and DeadnGrateful were looking at baskets this summer. We were talking about trying to play at vibes. We decided head injuries were likely.

If you bring baskets though, I can guarantee you've got 3 heads willing to play. They are both pretty decent. I embarrass myself.:monkey:

Oh wow, just checking out the PDGA for some pictures of the game. I thought that rather than a basket there would be a hoop stood on end.

Played the Tolland CT. course. Parked at the grade school my friends parked in park lot(they got locked in). A full 18 hole course. Was nicely laid out. Almost as challenging as Hyland. Lot of water around from streams, small swamp and vernal pools so in season prepare for skeeters. It is a more well known course than Pomfret so expect more seasoned players and maybe a wait or request to play through. :smile:
