Yeah it's 4.50$ and people still drive around in SUV's gunning the engine. The line outside the station with 4.15$ gas was blocking traffic down the street. I aced #2 at Fairfield U, it was blind and there was construction going on, I didn't know until I walked up the hill and was shocked to see it in the basket.
Southington, CT- Panthorn:Very nice and relatively long thickly wooded holes. Great smoothed out rubber pads and good signage. 7 holes of 9 are basically straight, basket either left or right of center but not a curve.It's good for a 9 hole course, well designed and tough. Not too rough but needs some wheed whacking, hard to find a disc. The other 2 are 2-stage shots anyways and you throw straight off the tee. No big turns here. The course is all the way back, left at ballfields, bulletin board by power line poles.
Fairfield, CT- Fairfield University:This is one of the nicest (in terms of being well manicured) courses I've ever played. Lush mowed grass, no rough, rolling hills and a pond with a fountain. The signs have no length and no next tee, so it's very hard to navigate. Hole #1-2 are behind the Biz school, #3 begins at the far end of the lot to the left of #2's basket, and #10 is across the road from #9. The basket you see off the tee is not necessarily the one you are playing to. Most holes are long, it's fairly open but with plenty of trees. One over water shot. Fun to play.
Norwalk, CT- Cranbury:Some of the best rubber tees out there, all smooth and built up, brooms provided sometimes. Good signs, but some not 100% accurate with placement and distance. Confusing at first, because there are 2 baskets in the ground per hole. Very well maintained. Mostly in deep woods, with lots of trees in fairways and tunnel holes, of all variety. Just a few holes are overgrown or don't have much of a realistic fairway. The rest is well designed and demanding. One hole almost forces a roller off the tee. A must-play in the region.
Mt. Kisco, NY- Leonard:I can't comment much on the design, as it was so confusing to figure out I could not find all of it, and am not sure I played some holes properly. Also being 31 years old, many trees there didn't exist when it was designed. The signs are homemade and don't help much for someone playing it the first time. It's technically a private course for people who live in that city, but they let me in, I'm not sure if it's ok (legally) to park at TJ Max and sneak in like it says to in the directory. Once in, it's hard to figure out where to park, the gatekeeper didn't know. I saw a basket and after wandering around it for 5 minutes, figured it to be hole #12, so began walking backwards. There's no distinct fairways on most holes, or walkways between them, so without a local guide it is pretty much impossible to figure out in a reasonable time. I spent 2 hours there and didn't find some holes. Baskets aren't #'ed and are old and rusty. Other than all that, it's not that bad. Some nice tight woods shots, and it's forgiving.
