Dover Park DG
0 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Short, fun little course to go play. Short holes allow for ace runs on almost every hole. One tee location and one pin location on each hole with natural teepads (except for a concrete pad on 2). There is a soccer field that runs adjacent to the course to allow practicing your drives after or before you play. There is also a practice hole just next to the hole 1 teepad. Very good place to introduce someone to the game of disc golf (this is where I am teaching my girlfriend to play). A perfect place for a quick game of disc golf for Dover locals.
Cons: Due to the lack of signs saying where the next tee is I found myself walking around amlisley looking for the next tee on a couple of the holes. The longest hole is a just over 300ft. The course does have some dangers where you will find yourself shooting close to the park office, a pavillion, and the road (just make sure to look before you throw).
Other Thoughts: Overall, a nice, quaint little course. Great for introducing someone to the great sport of disc golf and also fine tuning your approach and putting game. The park also offers not just disc golf. Some other activities include; tennis courts, basketball courts, soccer field, baseball field, playground, picnic areas with pavilions, and more! A great place to get out and enjoy the great outdoors.

nice local 9 holer
Pros: Nice baskets without a lot of traffic. Several ace runs made me want to play over and over, it doesn't have to be hard to have some good qualities. Course tries to add variety with in 9 holes and lots of trees force you to work on accuracy.
Cons: Several shots come close to parking areas, pavilions, cars, as well as other tees and fairways.
Pretty short course, I only pulled out the driver once.
9 alternate tees were difficult to find, I just played the traditional 9 over and over.
Hole 3 tee was difficult to find and had no fairway at all to the basket, just a tommy through the trees, but it is short.
Other Thoughts: For an Eagle Scout project this course's only flaw is the multiple safety issues, but when you compare it against the other DE courses it falls way short. I played this course when I had to drive some football players to the University. It was a lot of fun, but I would not have made the drive just for this course. If you are in the area check it out, but it is not worth a road trip like Iron Hill, Carousel, Brandywine and the other high caliber DE courses.

Good if you're local
Pros: A nice little 9 hole, good for practicing your approach and putting. 6 of the 9 holes go through the trees, a couple demanding real good accuracy to make par on the short holes. Baskets are new. 2 holes, 7 and 8 are more open and have a little distance to them. Park is lit at night and works very well for a bit a glow golf.
Cons: A couple tees where hard to find, and pin placement could use some work. On 2 the fairway goes straight ahead then hard left, and there's a pavilion directly in front of you. A couple other pins are right next to where people park their cars. Speaking of cars, a number of people in the park just sit in their parked cars and watch, it was a bit creepy.
Other Thoughts: Its a nice little course and was put in as an Eagle Scout project (cool) with most of the holes being sponsored by a local business. I always like seeing community and Disc Golf working together.
