Pros: When the course is in the C position…Watch out because it will be a tough round. (but fun)! Course is mostly in woods and when in C position is a great challenge. Great use of land and although some holes looked alike, they each had there own challenge. 5-6 of the holes in the c-position have raised baskets, and almost every pin location has its own challenge to get to. I was really surprised how much I enjoyed the course. The course can teach you to become a great golfer as accuracy, and distance is essential and there is enough elevation change to keep it interesting

Pros: As mentioned previously 27 holes with various tee and pin positions. Plays thru the woods then opens up to finish. A must play! Host of the Tyler Jr. Jam which is how I got introduced to it. Caddying for my son just didn't satisfy the urge and ended up staying afterwards and throwing the entire course after walking it thru 18 holes. Well groomed paths between baskets.
Cons: Definitely want to bring the hikers and a little tricky trying to follow the scorecard map.
Other Thoughts: Great work improving the course. Adding the extra 9 holes complements the the already varied course layouts. See ya at the Great Eastern Am championship and the Yetter.

Pros: Lots of variety with the different pin placements. Holes are nicely spread out through the woods. A few open holes mix it up. Some tough uphill holes as well. Nice concrete tees. Well marked. New hole 27 is a fantastic island hole.
Cons: Bathrooms are locked during winter. No water comes into play for you OB fans, though there is some asphalt to worry about. Beginners will have trouble because if a pin is in position C, there's not much they can do to make the hole shorter.
Other Thoughts: Well worth the drive. Great challenge and variety, plus a ton of picnic tables. New hole 20 is just too demanding... a long, narrow uphill chute that absolutely punishes bad shots. Oh, and lately 23 has been in the terrifying B position. Seems like they're trying to turn this into even more of a championship caliber course! After playing over 20 courses and playing here for a year, including 2 amazing tournaments, I have upgraded my rating and it is now my first 5-disc course!

Pros: 3 pin positions. Concrete tees. Great facilities. Adequate parking. Lots of varied terrain. Lots of support from local players and DCNR staff.
Cons: Bring your hiking shoes. Good footing is needed while hiking throughout the park.
Other Thoughts: 27 great holes....9 more temp holes when the Yetter is played. Primo course....must play if your in SE PA!

Pros: Lots of variety; challenging both for distance and accuracy; generally in good shape
Cons: Difference in distances for pin placement on some holes - 5 can be 307 or 797 feet, 14 can be 230 or 711, 23 can be 203 or 587 - hard to know what your round may be like until you get to each hole.
Other Thoughts: Mostly wooded, a couple of open holes. It's nice to have the extra 9 holes to play, and 19-27 are easier than 1-18.

Pros: 27 of the best holes I have ever played! The course rolls up and down some good elevation changes and and there are three pin locations, and they are frequently rotated. In the long pins, the course can easliy play out to about three miles. Some elevated baskets allow for a challenging putting experience. Wooded holes are not all tight with excellent concrete tees. Except for grass in summer, the course is well kept and maintained. I like some of the changes on the course. 21 is an excellent "empty your bag" ace challenge, especially in the 210 ft. "A" position. The 27th hole in the "C" is one of the toughest holes I've played in a long time. It's an island green, and with the long grass OB as well as the parking lot, and lots of trees to your right, this one screams "new signature hole"!
Cons: Not sure what the long grass warning is for. Signs were helpfully posted, but didn't offer up an explanation.
Other Thoughts: Many tournaments occur here. This is easily one of the best courses in eastern PA and a must include in an area DG tour. Kudos to all who put this wonderful stop together! Ten minutes from I-95.
