Drew, Chris, and the staff of the New England Disc Golf Center stayed busy during the state mandated COVID-19 closure.   An addition hole has been completed on the Calico Creek front nine, between the third hole and the old fourth hole.  For now, we'll just call the ho...

Calico Creek should be considered a "rec level" course (PDGA Red & Green layouts), but in no way is it anything less than professional in quality.  The layout provides a rich and varied experience and the course meets or exceeds the high standards that you would expect...

The Spoonwood Ridge finishing hole can be a nightmare... Calico Creek's is a dream.   It's a wide-open downhill ace run, maybe even in front of a gallery spectating from the pro shop, or maybe a carload of arriving players come up the driveway.   From the reds, take ai...

Hole 17 requires that you hit a tight gap from down in the woods to approach the basket that sits in the meadow.  From the reds, you have 194' subtly uphill drive on a daunting tight line.   You'll have to throw a putter or mid very straight to avoid the maples, oak, a...

Hole sixteen is a short finesse par three that you'll want to birdie.   It plays just 138' from the combined red / green tee box.  You'll need to avoid trees the entire way, though you'll have a pretty generous left-to-right line to get close.  You may even have a tigh...

An interesting hole where you will be teeing from the edge of the woods, throwing a drive across the meadow and hopefully have your drive dip into a protected little glade for a birdie look.  

From the red tees, you'll have 279' shot, with a distinct left to right line....

After spending lots of times in the woods since the first hole, hole thirteen (hole eight at the moment) is a transition hole that starts with a tunnel shot through the woods and takes huge right turn into the meadow.  

From the red tee, you'll need about 175' of carry...

At the time I'm writing this blog, holes 7 through 12 are cut out and are in various levels of completion.  This hole is currently playing as hole seven in the 12-hole layout.  Soon it will become hole 13 in the final Calico Creek 18 hole layout.

This an interestin...

Hole seven is the final in a sequence of 4 short holes that climb up along then away from Calico Creek.  It is the shortest, at least from the red tee, and has the least elevation change, a rise of five feet or so.   What makes this one tricky is two leaning beech tree...
