Pros: New(er) baskets. Nice Park. Great signage on the tee pads. Tee pads are in good condition.

I played with my 11yr old daughter and had a great time. Holes are laid out well using trees and bushes as obstacles. Uphill shots and some holes setup with harder angles add variety. Highly recommend this course for a beginner, relaxing round or a family. I actually pulled some discs out of my bag (ex. Skeeter) that I rarely use since the holes are shorter distance than others in the area.
Cons: Par 3's. If you are out looking to test our your arm or aiming for long drives this is not the course for you. I really didn't find this as much of a problem though. No water and not a ton of variety from hole to hole. $6 out of state.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course to play after a long winter of not playing. It was perfect for my younger daughter who doesn't have a good distance throw. Park was very nice also.

Pros: well maintained fairways. Super friendly locals. Great flow to this course working in longer and shorter holes and also going from hole to hole all the tee boxes were easy to find. between holes 2 and 3 there's an AWESOME place to sit and chill for a few min over looking a few later holes.
Cons: roughs are ROUGH, if you really shank a drive on certain holes, chances are slim you will find it.
Other Thoughts: I drove about an hour to get there was was NOT disappointed. Put this one on your list.

Pros: -very creative hole layouts
-multiple pin placements (alternate pins are not in very good shape though as they are old/rusted)
-decent signage, but its almost not even needed because once you have played the course once, you'll know it well enough that the signs aren't needed.
-creative layout.
-a little bit of everything, not too much of any one style of hole...a couple long holes requiring great distance, a couple pins are hidden behind huge bushes or obstacles, etc. great variety here.
-very few non disc golfers on the course.
-fairways are very well maintained
-baskets in great shape.
-challenging, but still beginner/am friendly.
Cons: -pay-to-play, but if your in-state and play disc golf regularly you NEED to have an annual pass. its a no brainer.
-my main gripe with this course is...THE BRUSH. It has eaten soooooo many of my discs. a spotter is a must or you will lose at least 1 disc while your playing, maybe more. they should really do something about this insane brush.
-i would personally enjoy some more wide open shots, but thats not what this course is...if you want to watch your disc sail 400+ feet, go to brandywine. if your into slightlyyy more technical shots, this is the course for you.
Other Thoughts: i love this course, i can't say enough about it. it would be flawless in my opinion if they cut down some of that nasty brush and poison ivy. But other than that, i have no complaints at all.

beginners should shoot in the 70's, intermediate ams should shoot around 60-55. pros should get anywhere below 50.
