Quarry Run Disc Golf Course- Augusta, Maine

Quarry Run Disc Golf Course- Augusta, Maine

            This course is straight up awesome!  Any type of hole you can imagine is here.  There are short ace runs, long downhill bombers, tight wooed shots, shots from fields into gaps, open field holes, and plenty more.  The course plays through an old rock quarry with a few of the holes going over or though the quarry, which is a cool touch for me.  Quarry Run also has a decent sized pro shop with reasonable prices and the staff are very friendly and willing to help.  Talking to the owner, he is planning on expanding his course and making 2 different course, a pro level course and a beginner friendly course.  This is very exciting and disappointing at the same time because I love the current lay out, but I can’t wait to see what else this property has to offer.

Pros-

-          Great Hole Creativity

-          Great mix of shots i.e. backhand/flick, hyzer/anhyzer, short/long, open/tight

-          Great use of elevation

-          Super clean course

-          Very friendly and helpful staff

-          Course is maintained as well as any other top notch course

-          Tee signs give the perfect amount of details

-          Tables and/or benches at every hole

Cons-

-          Pars are too easy ( I shot 10 under par with 2 or 3 eagles, I’m not THAT good!)

-          The course is going to be changing in a year, so get this lay out in as soon as you can!

-          Tees are rough at times, multiple kinds of concrete used and in sections so they can be bumpy and uneven

 

This is just a fun course to play.  If you are a player looking to get your first under par round or looking to hit par, this is the course to do it on.  Get it out of the way so when you find yourself shooting under par during a tournament, you don’t choke cause you’ve never gone under par before.  With a readjustment to the pars, this course would be a 5 out of 5, but with the easy pars, it is a 4.5 out of 5.  I am excited to see the changes and the new course put in here, but I will miss the current lay out.  Another great thing about the location of the course is that it is a hot bed of courses.  New courses are developing and popping up often to add to the many existing course up there.
