Decent concrete single teepads, multi-position pin postions, signs showing current location of basket.
High grass and some thick underbrush make disc-loss a possibility. A few non-players on the walking paths. $6 to enter park, but you could also play relatively-nearby Lums, Brandywine, and Bellevue on the same day for that one fee.
The holes on this course are what I would describe as "tech lite". No holes could be described as wide open, but none are super tight. Many holes will have a defined and often-narrowing fairway, with a tree or two guarding the approach to the basket. Obstacles come into play at various points - narrow-windows to throw through early, grouping of trees in the midst of the fairways, and/or somewhat-protected basket locations. Most holes are flat, only a few with minor elevation changes. 2/3rds of the holes fall into the 230'-310' range, average distance ~280'. Nice variety of shots needed - was left/right turning neutral. A few holes have extra, unmarked baskets.
Navigation: The course is fairly easy to follow, despite the lack of a map. A couple of tips: To find tee #1, start at the top of the nearest parking lot to the entrance. Walk down the path, keeping the picninc tables to your right. In a clearing to your right is the practice basket - walk towards then past it, tee #1 will be on the left. Also, the tee just to the left of basket #3 is #17; To find #4, go right to the main path, then left up to the tee about 150' away.
Favourite hole #9: About 300', fairway lined with trees on both sides, need to go straight the first 200' or so, then a gentle right-then-left turn to reach the basket set in the edge of the woods.
Played on Labor Day, and there was a Beatles tribute band playing a free show. It ended with Helter Skelter just as we were approaching #18, so it was a mad dash to the car to beat the worst of the traffic!
This course is good for players looking for something beyond open grip-n-rip, but not wanting the other extreme of tree pinball.
