Tyler State Park
Pros: Absolutely beautiful 27 hole course that is a pleasure to play. It is extremely well maintained and a great place to be out in nature. As far as disc golf goes it has almost everything you can ask for. Great variety (hyzer, anhyzer, uphill/downhill elevation changes, some open holes to air out the driver and tight wooded fairways to test the technical game).
Hand painted, accurate signs are at every tee-box. Baskets/tee pads are in great condition; its clear that a lot of work goes into maintaining this course.
Multiple basket locations at every hole that are rotated regularly make the course a little different every time you play it.
Also the fact that it has 27 holes is a major pro..more DG is always a good thing.
Cons: Its tough to think of any real cons but there are a few minor ones..
There is usually a good deal of non-disc golf traffic especially on a nice day. There is a running/biking path that runs though part of the course so obviously it is important to be aware of you surroundings before you throw.
There have been some recent changes to the layout of the course that are a little confusing but that is being ironed out.
Other Thoughts: I am extremely impressed but how the designers were able to come up with so much variety...all 27 holes have their own unique feel and challenges. One of my favorite courses to play and its definitely worth a long drive for if you aren't lucky enough to live in the area.

Great Course in a Nice Park
Pros: Challenging Course through the woods
Multiple pins to mix things up
Good mix of long and short holes
Great signage directing you to the next hole as well as the layout of the hole
Cons: All but a few holes are in the woods which for some might get a bit old
Other Thoughts: This park has quickly become my favorite course. The signs at each hole were great to allow you to know where the pin was and where you needed to go.

Pros: All the hand painted signs were great. Each fairway was lined out with trees. The baskets can be seen from the tees. Nice, not to tight thought the woods. This course was line out great. On one of the hole I could hear a waterfall, even could look out over the lake. I had some deer come up to me on one of the back holes. This course is in my top five of courses I have ever been too.

Pros: *Good use of the land, up until you get to the last 9
*3 diff pin placements for each basket
*Good variety of shots and discs needed
Cons: *Randomly scattered easy staright aways that only ask you to throw your driver as far as you can tiwce to get across a boring field
*Many holes run back and forth over a paved walking/running trail
*alcohol prohibbited in the park, pfff! haha
*Not very unique
Other Thoughts: It seems as if someone designed a really good course and the just decided to add another 9 that was sub-par at best. It weaves in and out and back on and off trails, a lil confusing, but mostly just annoying. Not a very secluded enjoyable disc golf enviroment like its rival course Sedgley. I guess i would play it if in the area again, but its deff not on my To Do list. I'd rather be playing Campgaw/Mighty Gaw

Tyler is sweet!
Pros: I've only played at Tyler, but what a great course to learn the game and grow on! It has a majority of holes tree covered and in the woods. During the summer months the greenery is thick but I have yet to lose a disc! Many different varieties of holes, dog legs left and right, up hill, down hill, obstacles, as well as 3 diff basket positions, there is something different each hole. And then a few holes that are wide open fields to let one fly! I enjoy every time I get to go out and can't wait till the next! Also extremely well maintained by the BCDGA awesome job!!
Cons: Par for the day sign? I know the baskets change at least once a month but I'm always confused if the par for the course changed? any clarification on this?
Other Thoughts: Wish there was a permanent 9 more holes! hoping one day to have 36 to run through. not that 27 isnt great, but who wouldnt want more.

Pros: A fair wooded course with well defined fairways that reward well thrown shots with very few trees in the middle of the line. Several well thought out holes with some good variety as well requiring a variety of shots.
Cons: Layout is kind of strange and can be hard to follow. Apparently some changes have been made recently so this will probably get better soon. Almost every hole was set up short. I don't know if this is just for the casual play or if the baskets are moved reguarly. It would have been nice to see a mixture.
Other Thoughts: I liked this course and I can see that a better player like Joe Mela has influenced it. It overall was fair with some memorable shots. Playing this course was fun and it certainly will make you a better player. I wish I would have had time for another round or two.

Best Course in Eastern PA
Pros: This course is VERY well maintained. Pins are changed about once a month providing a different challenge each visit. I have played every hole on almost every pin position and, regardless of A, B, or C pin placement, this course provides some unique challenges. There is a good balance of Dog legs left and right, wide and narrow fairways as well as raised pins. There is MAJOR elevation changes on some holes which provides the necessity for some non-conventional throws. For those who enjoy more finesse rather than pure power, this course in mostly wood (save 15 (Old 17), 16 (Old 18), 25-27). The course was just re-worked for the ECY Tournament next weekend (hence the reference to OLD hole locations. Signage from pin to pin is the best i've seen. Each hole has a well detailed map of the hole with suggested paths drawn. With the re-worked layout, you can now play 18 holes and end at the top of the hill where you parked.
Cons: This course can get crowded on weekends and holidays. Suggestion is to go early in the day, or during the week when foot traffic is at a minimum. Since this is a public park, many times stray hikers will cut across the course. Be sure to call "Fore" or check the path to make sure you won't hit anyone.
Other Thoughts: As the title says, this is the Best Course that Eastern PA has to offer. Be sure to bring your Hiking Boots or comfortable hiking shoes. Also, bring some bug spray during the summer months to keep pesky bugs away. All in all, this is my home course and I couldn't be happier to play this course on a weekly basis.

Perfect C Sharp
Pros: This is my home course, where I first started over 17 yrs ago. I remeber back when it was only 21 holes and hole one started down in the woods where hole 22 is. This is the best groomed and most well maintained woods course, I really like the 27 holes that exist today. There is a lot of love that goes into this course. All positions are a challenge but I especially like when all holes are in C. That is my fav because get to utilize the entire course to the max. No matter how many times I have played, always a challenge and always fun.
Cons: 27 holes is just not enough. There is so much more land over by hole 24 why can't this part be expanded to include another 9? Then there would be two pro18 courses!!
Other Thoughts: Go here and play, you will love it. Bring your girlfriend, wife, kids, dogs..whomever. Fun for everyone.
