Default Pittsburgh Disc Golf

I wasn't able to find a Pittsburgh thread so I made this one. I play regularly in the area. If anyone lives or has played in the Pittsburgh area then post your input on the courses here!

moraine and deer lakes are our bread and butter for sure, knob, slippery rock, and linbrook are all decent courses and probably play at knob more than any other course because its the most convenient. I avoid schenley like the plague, course is just bad.

What about Monroeville and North Strabane?

Sadly, I've only goten to play those two courses in the Pittsburgh area, myself. They were both fun, simple 9 holers for me.

I really do need to make a long weekend trip up there to hit up the signature courses!

Pittsburgh has fantastic terrain for courses. You won't be disappointed. I made my second discing trip up there this year, and I'm already dreaming about returning. Great people up there too!

I got to see MPO round five of Worlds at Moraine which was awesome. Can't wait go play it, and the others.

And Cincy is pretty sweet, too, huh?

I'm thrilled to live in the area. Cincy is indeed blessed with some wonderful courses (and respectable terrain for more), but it's lacking the elevation Pittsburgh has.

Moraine is in my top 5 of all time. You are going to love throwing it! Pair it with Deer Lakes, and you'll leave Pittsburgh yearning to return.

I play Knob almost every day because it's so convenient for me. I need to get out to deer lakes and moraine because they are both top 20 on DGCR rankings. I don't want to play at Schenley period haha. What's your favorite hole on each of the courses? I like No. 13 at Knob Hill.

I'm driving to Pittsburgh on Friday but can't play because of a shoulder injury
Moraine is great but I like Deer Lakes a tad better. Knob is very good too, my hotel this time is 5 minutes away.
I've never decided which area is better, Cincy or Pitt? Both are GREAT!!!
