Great Course in the Works!
Pros: • Great use of topology; elevation changes, wooden vs. non wooded holes, water hazards and good mix of right and left shots.
• Mostly short walks from basket to next tee with one exception.
Cons: • Since this course is a work in progress any cons should be taken with a grain of salt and considered suggestions.
• It was tough finding the first tee. I originally played from the alternate #1 tee box, since that was the first one I saw walking from my car. Better directional signs, maybe a bulletin board and some score cards.
Other Thoughts: If you ever wanted to see how a course is built, stop by Kennedy Park. I met up with Alan and Adam, two of the many people, who are building this course. They show us a great time, and we had a lot of fun playing and discussing ideas on new basket locations. As we played each hole, they talked about the thought process of the layout. Although, there are only 10 holes today, there is an ongoing fundraiser to buy and build 8 more holes. Once the course is completed, more permanent signage and directionals will be put in place. What a great addition to N.E. PA disc golf!

Pros: This course has a good variety of open and wooded holes. The first 6 are tight in the woods and the last four are great to air it out. All of the holes flow very nice and the course could be played very quickly. The fairways are also in very good condition.
Cons: The only disappointment is that there are only 10 holes. I don't think this will ever be a 18 hole course because of space issues but it would be nice if they could get 18. There also could be more alternate tee boxes for some of the holes.

Nice short course with good mix of holes
Pros: Even the shortest holes have a good challenge element. There's almost always two ways to tackle a hole, and each one has a different risk-reward aspect to it. Hole 6 is a real bomber.
Cons: Some short holes in the woods. Brush outside the fairways can be very dense in some places. Some holes can get soggy when it rains. Hole 6 is dangerously close to the baseball field, which means you can't really let loose when there's a game going on.
Other Thoughts: This course has been steadily getting better as they improve the tees, clear wooded fairways and trails, signage, etc. Some courses stagnate, but they're intent on making this into the best course possible given its limited space.
