Pros: Small technical course and it's close to where I live.
Cons: Outdated old and pretty much abandoned
Other Thoughts: Played a round of DG with my wife and sister On a Saturday morning this was the first time any of us were at the course. Overall I would say it was decent it is a small course only nine holes and unfortunately the course has some signs of neglect they still have the same homemade baskets from1996 and some of the paths are starting to overgrow but with The situation of Moon Lake Park as it is now it's pretty understandable. As some of the other of reviewers have commented there should be updates and hopefully new baskets etc. coming to the course and a bigger course as well. I really do hope they put a nice one in here because it is because it is really close to the Back Mountain.

Pros: short and technical. Not crowded. Targets different and require a more direct hit. You make the shot or you do not. The chains are not forgiving. Spoke with a course creator/updater and good things to come for those who like the standard courses.
Cons: Not commercial baskets if that is a must for you. Only nine holes but sounds like more to come. A little tough to follow from hole 4 to 5 but small enough to figure out.
Other Thoughts: We enjoyed our visit and will return and play when in the area. We just enjoy playing and do not need the frills. Thanks for the efforts of those who are working on the course.

its a mini course

Pros: The first disc golf course in luzerne county. Fun, challenging, sweet little 9 hole putter/mini course. Very short and technical. Course routs through mature hardwood forest, waist high ferns in the summer months can make looking for errant shots a memorable experience.
Most holes range from 100ft.~280ft.
Homemade baskets. Plenty of parking.
Pota-Johns located at the marina during the summer.
Cons: All of the negative reviews of this course are based entirely on the homemade baskets. The positives- scenery, serenity and fun factor far outweigh the negatives.
Other Thoughts: Work has begun on more difficult and challenging layout. Stay tuned.

Pros: very nice course with great flow...
wooded chip and put. Perfect Ace Race course.
Cons: only one or two real par 3 hole. I think both were parred at a 4. A really good player may be able to pull off a few aces, once played a few rounds.
Other Thoughts: I shot a 20. I plan on playing again if and when I drive near there

Pros: Not too many. This is the first couse I played (10 min. from my house.) I am glad I went to a real course after this and did not stop discgolfing. Some innovation shown with the homemade "disc catchers"
Cons: Very short, no defined fairways. Not maintained at all. Good chance of losing a disc b/c of the thigh high ferns that dominate the groundcover.
Other Thoughts: If you are fishing or camping in the park go check it out,otherwise it is not worth the drive. The park has run into financial problems (Luzerne County gov't is in a mess) and I don't think we will ever see the 18 hole course completed. That's a shame, there aren't any courses in the immiediate area.

Crescent Moon for Now
Pros: It is a short technical course that if you happen to be at Moon Lake Park and want to escape from your family, friends etc.....you can go play a tight technical course...It's a good place to show people how far the game has evolved...this would be akin to showing young schoolchildren a Chevette automobile..that being it's old, small, not very good, does not age well, unsafe, and a crappy blue color Ha Ha! But it is cheap and did not cost much to make! The drive to the park and the park itself are absolutely gorgeous! I am hearing an amazing 18 is going to be finished soon.
Cons: Where to begin. It is short, just 9 holes, maybe 100-200 foot fairways. The tees are simply those concrete parking slabs you see in a parking lot placed in the woods, If you foot fault the penalty is not only a stroke but possibly a broken ankle! The fairways are all the same..tight and short. The baskets are homemade rusted chains connected to what appears to be brigh blue plastic trash cans cut in pieces. Remote course in middle of nowhere...I would not drive more than 5 minutes to play it...so it's really only good if you happen to be in the park for some odd reason.
Other Thoughts: In a way I hope they keep the crappy niner there even when the Elite Course is completed in Spring 2009. It would be neat to have a beginner and an expert course on the same grounds...would also be fun to drive my friends the 2 hours to this course and have them swear at me as we play the crap 9 and then spring the monster new 18 on them!The elite 18 holer is going in by the marina in the rear of the park. I walked down there and it looks like an amazing wooded course with elevation, streams, long interesting fairways and pin placements is being put in. Was kind of hard to tell exactly but the future looks like a Full Moon Here!

Moon Lake, PA

Cons: This course (9 hole rec) is an absolute terrible "course". Super easy with home baskets that provide shelter for bees and rodents. The place hasn't been maintained and the disc catchers are an embarrassment to disc golfing overall. The current mess (course) should be removed from this site because of it's poor condition and easy, easy play and over lack of care.
Other Thoughts: The rec course is a waste of time due to the overall conditions of the baskets in play. The chains are so rusted and tight, that a disc cannot penetrate them. Again, I'm commenting on the 9 hole rec course and I think it's terrible.
