Chester DGC is a classic, well maintained and well-laid out New England-style course. The challenging, mostly wooded holes are not super-long, but they do require a balanced combination of both finesse and power. Some fairway lines are pretty tight, others are more open. Undulating terrain adds an element of strategy to shot placements as side hill lies and baskets can often lead to roll-aways and birdie-to-bogie scores in a flash.
The course has an information kiosk, practice basket and excellent signage and walking paths between holes. Two framed, gravel tee boxes per hole dot the Front 9 (Pro-Black and Novice-Green) with a few Alternate boxes as well. There are a handful of unique, hand carved wooden benches and dimensional benches scattered throughout the course – a nice feature.
The Back 9, opened in June 2019, features a variety of challenging holes as the course climbs to the relatively flat summit area of the pinnacle. Most of the B9 fairways wind through tall pine tree stands, before culminating on hole #18 and a sharp downhill approach to a basket located just uphill of the recently restored picnic pavilion.
Any disc golfer will enjoy and appreciate the beauty, flow, challenge and shot shaping required to score on this course. Definitely worth checking out.
