Default North Strabane Twp. Disc Golf Course (southwestern Pa)

A new course is being installed at 1929 Route 519 Canonsburg, Pa 15317

Myself and tistoude did the layout pictured below. We are in need of volunteers to help with fairway clearing and eventually tee and basket install. We hope to have the course playable by spring 2013. If you are interested in helping or offering an opinion on the proposed layout send me or tistoude a pm.

Dang I wish this was around when I used to work in Eighty-Four... I live in the North hills but work in Green Tree. I probably can't make it often but I might be able to lend a hand after work every now and then. Best of luck to you guys and please keep us updated!

Thanks to Tim and Aaron for coming out for the first work day. We cleared the fairway for hole 3. We started on the thickest part of jungle that the property has to offer. With the amount of time and people we had I feel like we got a ton accomplished. The next work days are sat the 6th and Sun the 7th. Tools needed are chainsaws and rakes. If you can make it let me know so we can coordinate our time and efforts.

I will be there again. I will be bringing grass whips, 3 sets of loppers, a couple of rakes and a pole saw. Hopefully I will be able to bring a couple of people with me.

Nice. If I can make it out to help I will. Still working out at Linbrook. Hope you guys can move quicker than we have been able to.

Is that a road that is beside hole 1 6 and 18? 18 looks awfully close to a parking lot?

The map is not exactly dead on accurate. 18 is not particularly close to the parking lot. 1 and 6 are parallel to a walking path (not quite as close as shown) but it is considerably elevated in repect to the course. Only a big spike hyzer would bring it into play and you have pretty clear site lines on both holes. 6 is almost a tunnel with trees on the left and a hill on the right. The course sits on a lower elevation than most of the rest of the park. Think of Orange Crush circling around the hill at a lower elevation.

ok. Just be careful around paths and roads. Seen a few courses get pulled because of someone or something getting hit. Think of the worst shot you could ever throw. Then think of other people who are no good at the game who might throw the disc 300 feet to the right or left of where your worst shot might end up. Once I get my car back, I'd be glad to put in some work hours.

We definitely are considering safety and making sure to keep pedestrians and disc golfers from joining (notice the pun). When you can make it down and see it in person it should all make sense. Once we get a bit further along we want to get as many people down to play with temp tees and baskets. At this time we can make small changes based on feedback and playability. In the meantime feel free to come down and help any time your free.

How big is this park?? Looks quite large, kinda like Whispering Falls? Anyway, I'm sure it will be fine, the road just looks real close in the pictures.
