Huge Quake will Crumble You!
Pros: This place will challenge if not break you. A completely wooded course boasts elevation, looooong fairways with plenty of trouble all around, multiple pin placements, big wide gravel tees that are in good condition for a woods course, and enough overall difficulty that your game will be honed as your ego is crushed. If your a beginner go play across the lake at Boulder Woods. If your cocky, foolish, or have a disc named after you then play here! Hole Breakdown as follows,(all heavily wooded):
#1 is a rocket spike shot straight up 290 ft but feels like 400 due to the vertical climb needed.
#2 a long slightly uphill drive 550 ft to a clearing
#3 the uber super challenging flat winding tight but not impossible par 6 953 foot hole....ranges from par 4-6 depending on pin position. Could be 2 par 3s but is instead a unique chance to play for the albatross!
#4,5,6 all play flat shorter but tight and difficult
#7,8 are longer and difficult still flat
#9 is fun controlled downward drive to a fast green with the basket teasing you to go for it! But don't overshoot.
The back 9 is just as difficult but has more fun factor:
#10 an uphill long hyzer very fun hole
#11 another big uphill drive to a protected basket
#12,13 hyzer, anhyzer combo
#14 tight drive off of elevated tee
#15 catch your breath-low ceiling precise 150ft drive
#16 another long challenging drive
#17 funnest hole on course IMO-drive downhill to a basket below- aceable but also plenty of trouble if you mess up the drive
#18 finish on a unique downward hyzer that goes into the clear and back into woods, but if you throw too far or flip it over your toast, too short your in deep trees, hit it just right you can have a 2...a great tournament finishing hole...I could see 2 players playing for a title here and one getting a deuce here and the other flipping it over ,due to sudden wind from lake?, back over road or ending up in jail and taking a 4-5 and swearing at themselves, their disc, or the designers. Great hole!
The theme is length and trees here...fairways are reasonable for fairway length. Stop bitching and start focusing. Well Marked.
Cons: Could be too grueling for some players...this course is exceptionally demanding
Other Thoughts: This course along with French Creek, Nockamixon, and Whispering Falls to me is pushing Pennsylvania to the forefront of Wooded Disc Course excellence. I would expect some very good players coming from this area if they are able to play this course regularly. Nice job LLamas I will return!
