Premiere Disc Golf Destination
Pros: Woodland Valley has two courses: The Black Bear and The Grizzly Bear. The Black Bear is designed for casual golfers as well as tournament players. It could not be considered a pitch and putt, but a majority of holes are under 300 feet long. For experienced players, you will find yourself throwing a lot of mid-range discs and putters. The fairways are reasonable but also require skill to navigate. Only one hole of the 18 could really use an adjustment. The Grizzly is just as it sounds, a little bit more intimidating, a little longer, and full of shots that require a decent level of skill to execute with success. The shots vary in degree of difficulty and will test the vast majority of shots in your bag.
The tee pads are well done. They are stone pads with a solid wooden frame. They lie flat and smooth and are long enough for a moderate run up for release. The course is always well groomed and the owners take pride in providing a top notch disc golf experience.
The clubhouse is always fully stocked with all imaginable discs and in all weights. Anything not in store can always be special ordered. They offer a fair selection of disc golf apparel as well as bags and snacks. The clubhouse is always manned by the friendly owners.
Cons: As far as cons for Woodland Valley go, I'd say the list is rather short if not completely nonexistent. The only real complaint I have is the slightly repetitive nature of a few holes on the Black Bear.
Other Thoughts: If Woodland Valley is not the best course in the state of Maine, it certainly would not be far behind the one that is. For anyone looking to come golf in Maine, this is a must hit location. The only downside is there's nothing worth golfing within 40 minutes of the course. But with a third course in the works, and a few holes cut in already, why would you even need to find another course to play?

Pros: This is what Maine disc golf is all about. Beautiful course layout on a steller plot of land. Great rewards for good shots and penalties for arrant ones. Nice rolling terrain to give you the challenge of throwing up and down hill, with a BOOMER of a shot to finish it all off. Pro shop that is fully stocked. TWO THUMBS UP!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cons: It's kind of hard to find anything to complain about....less snow please...... Howard and Linda Burnham and family are setting the bar.
Other Thoughts: Don't pass this one up. They also have another sweet couse on site. You can make it a day here.

Pros: I am blessed to live near to a course of this caliber. Howard, Linda, and their sons have done a great job creating a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. The game play is challeging but not overbearing for newbies to the game. In my opinion this is the nicest course in Maine and a great place to bring beginners as well as a course that is great practice for your next tournament.
Cons: If you don't like a wooded course then this is not the place for you.
Other Thoughts: Don't forget the Grizzly.
