Pros: I checked in at the camp center and found the staff very helpful by providing a camp map, course score card, and pencil. The staff also provided directions for parking and direction to the first tee box. Once oriented on the course the map was very helpful for navigating the first 6 holes which are played around the camp grounds. Holes 7 thru 17 are played in the adjacent wooded area which is very pleasant. These holes are short but require skillful shots. The wooded holes are well marked and easy to navigate without a map.
Cons: Holes 1 thru 6 are not easy to navigate without the course map. The tee boxes lack a sign post and diagram of the hole. The baskets are not numbered on this set do holes. I can see that during camp season these holes might be difficult to play due to camp activities in the area.
Other Thoughts: The camp in the recent past expanded the course to a full 18 holes. All the new holes are in the wooded area away from seasonal campers. The staff should consider running the more of the holes in the woods keeping only a few holes in the recreational area farthest from camp activities. I had a lot of fun playing the course and will visit it again.

Throwing on Historic Braddock's Road
Pros: Overall the course has made the most of the available terrain allowing for elevation changes, tight and open fairways, and protected shots.
Played several times both with campers onsite and no campers around at all and never had to worry about people in the way of any shots.
Asked for permission to play at office and was welcomed and given a scorecard/map.
Holes 6, 7, & 8 are the best on the course. 6 & 7 are tree holes that provide ace opportunities but are narrow enough to bounce your discs deep into trouble. Hole 8 is an open hole with an elevation rise to a partially protected basket.
Cons: The pars are way too generous.
The tee boxes could've used existing paths more to provide consistent footing.
Other Thoughts: The tree holes 6 & 7 are on the Historic Braddock's Road and the camp itself is close to the battlefield location of the opening battle of the French & Indian (7 Years War).
Course plays much differently in the wind by either adding distance to shots or length to holes.
Jumonville is definitely "Stroller-friendly" for playing with little ones in tow.
