Pros: This course is not hard to find; a mere turn off PA-286.

A good course for those in a hurry; I played this in about 20 minutes and I'm one who takes his time.

For beginners, this is a nice course. I've only been playing for about three months and I managed to birdie several of the holes using only my Roc and Aviar.

I can imagine this would be a good place to bring your kids because of the playground and other amenities nearby.

Cons: The signs are either damaged, vandalized, or missing. Despite this, it's not as hard to navigate the course as you'd imagine because of its small size (see below).

Because the park is so small, the holes are short and the baskets are pretty close together. There were a lot of people at this park -- both disc golfers and people seeking other recreation in the park.

Tees other than grass would be nice, and the decaying tee markers were hard to locate at times.

By the ninth hole, I was getting tired of throwing the same shot over and over again. The layout of the course minimizes the use for hyzers, anhyzers, or any other techniques.

Other Thoughts: I stopped at this course after playing at College Lodge. Interestingly, there were no people playing there, but a whole gaggle of people were at Getty Heights. I thought the converse would be true. Whether this course is usually busy would be better answered by a local player.

Despite the low rating, this course is moderately fun and relaxing. Played by itself, this course is not worth more than a 20 minute trek. It is, however, a great complement to the nearby College Lodge!

Pros: It is a course....
Cons: This course needs some major clean up. Most of the holes were missing their signs and it is a little hard to find hole five.The course seems to not be maintained at all. I didn't see a bathroom or any real ammenities.
Other Thoughts: This course is ok to play right after or before IUP Lodge since it is so close, but is not worth it on its own....
