The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Beatz bet me a disc this course(s) would make it into my top 5, he lost that bet. They are great, top 25 maybe, not bad out of 460+.
Round one was on the "Hawk" course. When you pull in, you are blown back by the sight of a huge basket fountain sign, a full size clubhouse/pro shop, tees and baskets everywhere, etc..
Thanks guys at Sabattus for the hat and disc. You can't miss this place if you come to Maine.
Not to forget I played the second round with Keiran ____ who was on my card last year at Worlds too. He beat me this time.

Sabattus, ME- Hawk:This is course starts with an under 200' straight wide tunnel shot, then goes right into a 530' true par-4 across a field through a line of birch trees with the basket in the woods down by a creek. Then the next hole is harder. It is about 1/3 open and 2/3 deeply wooded. Many par-4's, with two-stage layouts, throw a putter or midrange halfway there and land in a certain spot to get a shot for 3/4. It's relatively fair, bad shots are not devastating, but it takes insanely good shots to score here. Water in play, shallow though. Great tee pads and the best signs I've ever seen. Shot a 58 I think.

Sabattus, ME- Eagle: I like the Eagle a bit more, but if I could I'd take the best holes from both and combine for one course, which could make my top ten. The Eagle is a bit tougher, it has a few almost impossible to miss 2's, but mostly par 4's and some par 5's. There are signature holes here, such as the hole that requires a 300'+ floating left to right drive then a 250' straight shot up over a sand wall to the basket 3' from the edge, on a plateau. Like being in a gravel pit. Water in play a few times, big rocks and big pines. I shot 59 with half the pins in short..it's tough.

Sabattus, ME- Owl: This is designed to be short beginner course/warm up course. It is 9 holes, longest being maybe 250'. It is set up for possible glow play. Fun and surprisingly challenging to deuce most holes, but I did hit a cage.

I stopped at Sabattus in Oct 2007 and thought it was the best DG facility I have ever played, seemed like DG heaven and I have played over 200 courses in the past 20+ years.

This place sounds like an "all day visit".
