Pros: Makes excellent use of many natural alleys for the fairways.

Decent tee pads. A small but dedicated group of locals maintain and improve the course.

The unique landscape is used nicely.

Some holes have permanent alternate baskets, while others are movable.

New holes are in the works. F.E.W. keeps getting bigger.

Easy access, right off I-80, 476 (pa turnpike) and PA940, and close enough to PA115 and I-81.
Cons: Holes 3, 5, and 11 in particular are very poorly drained. Not the designers fault, just the nature of the land here.

Trouble finding the way. If you are a first timer, you will not find your away around easily. Lack of tee signs and arrows. Navigation is a nightmare.

Though it is great that new holes are always being added, it would make more sense to expend some of this time, expense and effort maintaining and improving existing holes.

Very few tee signs and the ones that exist are in bad shape.

Number 18 takes you away from the parking area, but this no big deal. You can just replay 16 and 17 to take you back.

Lost discs has been an issue on a number of holes. Some areas just seem to gobble plastic.

Most of the course demands similar shots. Play can get a bit repetitive and for me, at least, a bit boring. The new holes recently added remedy this a bit.
Other Thoughts: This course has a look all its own. Mostly an open course, but the vegetation comes into play more than you would first think.

Some holes have elevated baskets. Kinda cool once you get used to them. When the wind is blowing, things get tough.

This course grows on you.

Holes 6,7,and 8 are a tough stretch and the rest of the course has a nice variety of length.
