Pennsylvania DG Tour 2012

I'm planning a trip to Pennsylvania for 9/8 - 9/15. Current itinerary is as follows:
9/8 - Fly into Pittsburgh
9/9 - Knob Hill and Moraine
9/10 - Woodshed and Whipping Post
9/11 - Deer Lakes and IUP College Lodge or Moundsville Black
9/12 - Quakers Challenge and Little Lehigh Pkwy
9/13 - Jordan Creek and Tinicum or Camp Sankanac
9/14 - Nockamixon and Tyler
9/15 - Fly out of Philly

I'm trying to keep it to two courses a day in case I want to repeat anything. Is there anything awesome that I'm missing? Would you drop anything on here to play it? IUP or Moundsville? Tinicum or Sankanac? Any guides would be welcome.

I've heard Sankanac is a touch better than Tinicum. That said, you may want to play JC then Nocky ONE DAY, followed by Tyler then Sankanac the next (better flow). I could try to be available on the 12th, 13th, or 14th to show you around the Lehigh Valley Courses. Regardless, HAVE FUN!

Sounds like fun! A couple suggestions for the Pittsburgh end of your tour,
--Near the Pittsburgh airport is a 9-hole course called Two Mile Run Extension which has nine holes of similar quality to Deer Lakes and Moraine.

--Knob Hill is expendable although some people really like it and it's convenient travelwise.
--Switch 9/11 and 9/12.
--Just off the turnpike is Seven Springs Resort's disc golf course, which you should definitely play if you like ski slope courses.

FWIW, this requires a lot of backtracking.
