A lovely option for locals and beginners
Pros: This park is gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous. Perfectly maintained and mowed. 2 tee positions for variety... sometimes the alt tee is shorter for beginners (like #1), sometimes it radically changes a hole (like #2, coming in from a 60 degree different angle). Disccatchers are new, paths are easy to follow. Some serious elevation changes on holes 4 and 5! I called them "mini-beauty" and "mini-beast" after Brandywine.
Cons: Not well marked... didn't find alt tees for 1 and 2 until i realized at the end that every tee should have them. Hard to find regular tees sometime. Only 9 holes. Rough is very thorny and difficult.
Other Thoughts: I would love to have this course in my backyard now that I know the layout. Take a beginner there and they'll have a great first impression. Hole 9 has been changed to be less dangerous; pin is now in woods to right.

Pros: Very nice brand new Discatchers, every hole has a birdie possiblity, decently marked with orange flags to show you where the next tee is, really close to Tinicum
Cons: Distances of the holes are really short, Hole One plays through high grass, Tees are muddy
Other Thoughts: This course is perfect to take along someone with you that has never played or is just getting started, as it will not be at all initimidating to a beginer. Also it looks like this course is only going to get better as time goes by. It's very new and you get the feeling that the locals are just getting started there. There are some possibilities for alternate tees in the future so that you could play the course twice to make it a full 18. It's hard to find the first tee, when you pull into the park continue straight onto the dirt road. Park in front of the stable then back track up the road about 100 feet, the first tee is on the left about 50 feet from the dirt road.

A nice complement to Tinicum

Pros: 18 holes with DIScatcher baskets in great shape. An excellent mix of open and wooded holes as well as lefty/righty shots and also great elevation differences. A few fast greens add a challenge. Blue tees add more distance and give you different looks at the basket, while the reds are shorter, good for those less experienced or mostly recreational players, and will yield birdie and potential ace opportunities. Well maintained.
Cons: Off the fairways there are thorns and brambles. The tees are natural so after rain they can get muddy.
Other Thoughts: Again, this is a great complement to nearby Tinicum Park, and the two combine for an excellent and challenging day of disc golf. Matt LaCourte, among others, deserve a lot of credit for cotinuing to improve this course. Well done!
