Pros: offers a lot of shot diversity, well maintained, fun to play

Cons:
summer time the picnic tables/area gets more traffic but is not really an issue unless you try playing on labor day or fourth of July.
Other Thoughts: after hole 2, walk left and back through the path to unveil hole 3a; it's a dog left over a creek. There are a few pin locations to challenge the very best. follow the creek down stream to the tee of 3b out of the shoot to the #3 basket. two of the best holes on the course.

Pros: Simple, short course. A few dog legs to keep things interesting. Best holes occur once you get to #8/9 by lake for a bit of elevation and continue out of the picnic area. I love that stone wall on 14(?)
Cons: Near lake so there were lots and lots of bugs. The first few holes don't cross over eachother but logical landing areas from one hole will interfere with play on another. I was also expecting this course to be much better based on reviews on this site. Even with map it was hard to match up tees to pins. Still fun though.
Other Thoughts: First 6 holes are very open and dangerously close to picnic tables.

Pros: Course is in good shape, has a nice variety of holes.
Cons: Relatively short. Sometimes the picnic tables are in use so errant throws can bonk bystanders in the head.
Other Thoughts: Front nine is pretty open while the back nine is wooded and requires real accuracy. There's an extra hole over a creek and an alternate hole after the 2nd.

Pros: Good challenge with a variety of hole types.
Cons: Some holes require too much luck, this is disc golf not craps, there should be a line to the pin.
Other Thoughts: If you don't like throwing in the trees, play Walter Dam, it is nearby and a little more open.

Pros: 18 holes, but you can play the extra holes "3a" and "3b" instead of the original 3 on the main course area. 3a is a diffulcult, tight hole ( I believe it's a 4, it should be anyaway) and 3b is a little more open. Both play over a creek and are tighter than the rest of the course. There are a few mandos in play, on holes 2, 16, and 18. None of them require too much finesse on your shot. Baskets are in great shape. Tees are mostly gravel, course is fairly well marked. They have done away with the walk in between 9 and 10, it seems to be a lot nicer and less crowded. Might have made the course a little longer as well. Water is available during the summer. Good picnic places. Becareful of pedestrians. Many of the holes are shorter holes. Nice mix of lefty and righty holes as well as good pin locations. The course is well kept and maintained.
Cons: Some of the tees are kind of close to the baskets. The pedestrian factor can be larger in the summer but most of the time, it shouldn't be a problem.
Other Thoughts: With the long walk now out of the equation, the course is better improved. The local club deserves credit for it. The Poconos sister course is Walter Dam, a mere 15-20 minutes away. A short drive from the turnpike as well as Interstate 80.
