Pros: The course is close to Pittsburgh and attracts a lot of players. It has some good holes, with various challenges. Baskets near steep declines present a particular challenge.... The tees are nice (concrete / rubber). The course is well marked (yet last time I played the screws on the signs were not updated). Also despite being in a community park there aren't many people walking through the course.
Cons: As mentioned in the pros the pins next to steep declines....yeah we get it, 1 or 2 would be cool. The drainage on the course is awful. After even a light rain half of the holes contain a spongy swampy muddy mess.
Other Thoughts: This course always leaves me wanting more and wishing I had gone somewhere else. It's decent, but needs some work. That being said, it's ok and close.

Pros: Having three sets of tees was good to see and a big pro in my book. The course had some good elevation and seemingly gets a lot of play. The course signs were very beautiful. The park is very beautiful and in a nice part of town. The course featured two awesome downhill holes in the middle of the course that stood out from the rest.
Cons: The course had serious design flaws - I rated this course comparatively to other courses I have played in the nation and not compared to PA courses. I imagine the ratings for this course are inflated because of the lack of good courses in the area and state, besides Moraine State Park. Some of the holes were just absolute disasters, with decent fairway routes but poke and hope routes near the holes. 15 in particular had literally no route to the basket, and my shot hit the top of the basket by pure luck. Hole 2 was another example of just a "throw it and hope to get lucky." Holes 16 through 18 were just confusing, with fairways criss-crossing. Some of the walks between the holes were pretty long - also, each hole had three pin locations but you could never tell which location the pin was in. The course is situated in a beautiful park, and had serious potential.....but unfortunately that potential was not seen.
Other Thoughts: I was very disappointed with this course. I expected a lot after reading the ratings and really found nothing special about the course.
