This course is kind of a nod to the "historical" side of the game. The layout is almost all par 3s that are reachable from the tee, but each hole has a variety of obstacles that make the course tough but fair. In all honesty, this was our first real attempt at taking a completely blank canvas, and creating a course from scratch. Although we did have to work around some baseball fields, for the most part, all of the woods were ours to shape as we saw fit. We pitched this idea to the city, and when they started to receive some local interest, they gave us the green light to move forward. We stayed very true to our original budget with the hopes that a strong club would form and we could extend the course at a later date. It did not take long for our hopes to be realized and today the "Dieppe Disc Demons" are one of the strongest clubs out there. They are responsible for getting all of the concrete tee pads in the ground, and for running very successful league nights. We have plans in the works to extend many of the holes, and even add some new ones. A couple of the shots on this course are still among our favourites for par 3 holes that we have ever designed.
There is a direct link between the success of courses like this, and the creation of the more "championship" style of course in Hillsborough, NB. Public "feeder" courses are a great way to get new players into the game, and many of the holes can be parred, or even birdied, by players who are just starting out. If you have the chance to stop in and play here, you won't be disappointed.
