Short and Rough

Pros: -Baskets were all there. Most were Mach IIIs except 7 & 8 were brand new DISCatchers.
-Navigation was pretty straight forward. Most tees were visible from the previous basket and there were 2 tees for almost every hole.
The course played in a circle with hole 10 ending back at the parking lot.
Cons: -No room to air it out at all. Every hole was short and tight.
-Most holes had lines that were nearly impossible to hit or really had no line at all.
-VERY easy to lose a disc. The rough was rough.
-These were literally the shortest tee pads I have ever seen. They were all standstill room only unless you started behind.
-There was no tee for the basket labeled "10" we just played from the picnic table.
Other Thoughts: This course is definitely not worth going out of your way to play. If you're in the area and in the mood for looking for discs then this is the course for you. Otherwise, there are lots of other great courses in the vicinity.

Pros: The baskets are in excellent condition except for #8 which is currently missing. It is a good course for improving your short game. There are 2 tees for each hole. Just about every basket is visible from the tee. Next tees are not far away from basket, almost impossible to get lost.
Cons: Very small concrete tee pads. Some lettering on the tee signs is falling off. Some tee pads are starting to fall apart.
Other Thoughts: There is a hole with a 6 ft. high basket. Adds something different to the course. Disc loss in fall and winter should not be a problem but i'm sure in summer the brush is very thick.

Pros: Hole #4 makes this course worth playing...I call this hole Cinderella. Tight wooded lane between 2 streambeds that then opens to a sloping green that falls sharply into a huge deep creek...the basket is set in a hyzer angle but that hyzer may induce you to miss and roll into the creek. Really fun hole with plenty of challenge on the drive, approach, and putt. I would play that hole a few times if I came back. Hole #5 plays tight as well to a basket which is on a six foot pole...so you have to shoot at eye level...different. Hole #8 is a short shot, 100 ft?, that forces a delicate short approach perfect anhyzer and you got an ace. The other holes mostly play tight and require very controlled drives to score par. The tees are concrete and tiny...but you don't need a run up so relax already. Course definetely rewards controlled and conservative golf. A good place to work on your 100-200 foot accuracy game. 2 tees for each hole. Marked adequately and easy to find way around for most part.
Cons: The course is just 9 holes, It is mostly short, There are no big holes to really unload a drive on. If you find yourself in the rough be prepared to get scratched up a bit and not get a good look. It's even hard to tomahawk out of trouble here..basically impossible if your off the fairways. No elevation really.
Other Thoughts: Funny thing I did. After hole 5 I threw over some bushes a sweet little anhyzer to a basket perched in an opening....I later found out I just safaried to the wrong basket. Was a deuce too..damn! I suppose if you are a local you could play this tight little flat course and then play the nearby little hilly but open 9 holer Earl Township course and call it a well balanced day.

Pros: Well, honestly there arent many pros. Well one pro would be, if your back is hurting and dont wanna lug around your bag, then your in luck. Bring a putter and a midrange and you should be alright.
Cons: Redundant holes, picker bushes everywhere, and some holes are so short you question why you are even throwing. Hole 1, you need to be careful not to sail a disc to the left or you will hit a car if one is park in the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: Maybe change the pin positions and make real tee pads, and this 9 hole has some potential. It is beginner friendly i suppose.
