Pros:
Excellent concrete teepads with ridges to assist with gripping. Very nice signs showing the distance and location of the basket relative to other objects. Next tee arrows on bottom of baskets. Minimal chance to lose a disc. Would be a good course for glow. Easy to follow even w/o a map.
Cons:
The day we played two people parked their car and set up their lounge chairs practically on basket #1. Another non-player was parked and sitting fairly close to #2.
Other Thoughts:
Course plays in a counter-clockwise direction in a small multi-purpose park. Holes range in distance from 168' to 345', averaging about 240'. For a nine-holer, it had a nice blend of left/right/either/neither turning shots required off the tee, and uphill/downhill/flat. Holes 5-7 were fairly open, but the other had a couple trees, or a building, forcing some shot-shaping. Note: the closest tee to basket #5 is #7 - tee #6 is down the hill, and has you throwing back up it.

Excellent course for beginners ready to work on some shot-shaping. Multiple birdie-runs for more experienced players.

Pros: Perfect grippy concrete tees, signage, and nice baskets in a nice park. First 2 holes incorporate low ceilings nearby a river...watch your plinko trees here! Hole 3 is a different blind shot either left,right or over a windowless utility building! Hole 4 is a fun anhyzer up and through a tree gap. Hole 8 is a fun slightly downhill sharp anhyzer around some hardwoods to an island green surrounded by roads, and you finish your day with an ace chance around a big old tree. Great for beginners or as a relaxing round. I played it after getting tree whupped at White Tail and was glad I did. Bathrooms and plenty of parking. Also it is not far off of I-81 so worth a stop on your way to Paw Paw or Whispering Falls.
Cons: Short and will not provide any challenge to most disc golfers. Holes 5,6,and 7 are just open field hucks. A little confusion of which basket to throw to on hole 5. (read the sign!) OOB Access roads and river may bother beginners a bit. A shame as it is best suited for beginners.
Other Thoughts: I like simple niners as a way to practice and to restore confidence. This was a nice park and given it's proximity to I-81 I will probably stop by again sometime. Still seeking my first ace....this course has a slew of ace chances! I was very curious about the mini car dirt track and asphalt race track near the entrance of the park.

Pros: Easy to navigate, excellent signage, nice views, and porto-potties
I would rate this course a 5 for teaching beginners or taking a date on the weekend. Great confidence booster.
Cons: 9 holes and 9 tees. Course is not for advanced players. Holes are less than 300 feet and very few obsticles. Intermediate players will hit the basket in 2 throws most of the time.
This course will probably never see a tournament...maybe an ace race.
Other Thoughts: If you are experienced and looking for a course to play, look 6.3 miles away. But, if you are anywhere near this park, bring the discs it is a quick, easy, and short course.

Pros: This course is very clean, well marked with large concrete tee pads and visible holes. This course has potential for longer alternative pin placement, especially on holes 2, 5, 6, 7 and 9. The layout is fairly smooth and there are bathrooms and water on site.
Cons: This course suffers from short-hole syndrome. The longest hole is 345 feet, the second is 255, and the shortest is 168 (though it's a overhand left). This is a great course if you want to practice your short game and putting, because there aren't any holes long enough to use a driver on.
Other Thoughts: I shot a -3 (after two rounds of 9 holes) and only used a Coyote, Cro and Aviar Putter.

I can see this as a perfect place to take a date that might not play DG much or ever. It sits along a beautiful, albeit small, lake and has lots of wide open areas. Bring the kids.

Pros: Course and park very well maintained - grass cut. Tee signs on every hole, with distance and flight path. Nice concrete tee pads. Nice Discatcher baskets.
Cons: Only 9 holes. Short, open and not challenging for non beginner or rec players.
Other Thoughts: This would make a perfect course to introduce new players too. Also would be good for children under age 12.

Pros: 9 Discatcher baskets. Course plays 2 holes along the Conodoguinet Creek, the other 7 play on the fringes of a SMALL park. Concrete tees
Cons: Nothing more than a Roc or Buzz and/ or a putter. Course gets pulled in winter. longest hole 270'.
Other Thoughts: I would love to use the creek as a transport between Willow Mill and Creekside. Play the 9 at Willow Mill (as a warm up), then jump in a kayak or canoe and float down to the Creek and play a full 18. Oh, what a wonderful day ;o)
