With some clean-up, it could be great

Pros: - Elevation adds to the mix of interesting shots at this course.
- Fun course to play on the way to Nockamixon.
- Course is pretty easy to navigate.
Cons: There were plenty here for me.
- The grass on holes 1&2 was too much for me. I ended up losing two discs while playing and spent more time looking for the discs than throwing them on those two holes. Ultimately it's my fault for the shots, but just do whatever you can to stay clear of them. If you want to add more strokes the first two holes, you can easily make them up along the rest of the course.
- As some others have mentioned the destruction from the hurricane is absolutely insane here. Hole 3's basket is damaged from a fallen tree and there were even a few uprooted trees on some of the other holes that were massive. If this was cleaned up I'm sure it would be better.
Other Thoughts: I saw this course featured on disc golf monthly and figured I'd take the drive and give it a shot. I got frustrated quickly from losing two discs, but I could imagine that this course is a lot of fun in the winter when most of the grass and plants die down for the season.
If cleanup efforts are made, I think this course could be fantastic.

High potential is squandered
Pros: Great scenery. The walk down to (from? see below) hole 1 surely is picturesque in spring/summer/fall. A creek runs alongside a few holes, and there are large rock formations that come into play.
Cons: Short. Every hole was under 400 feet after the first, which made the reasonable fairways a little easy.
Sandy's destruction. The hurricane absolutely smashed the woods here, leaving huge trees downed directly in fairways or on top of baskets. It is passable, but you will literally have to throw over or around tons of trees and branches. Mainly affects holes 3 through 8.
Navigation. The hole maps were great, but the course map was off big time early on.
Hole 1 I think starts at the top of the hill, and ends up in the back woods slightly to the right. However that basket said hole #2, which threw us off.
Hole 2 then goes back across the field and ends towards the bottom of the incline, and that basket says #3.
This goes on for the first three or 4 holes, before the tee numbers catch up to the basket numbers. Made for a very confusing first play through, especially when coupled with trees blocking our view/path at every turn.
Other Thoughts: I had a difficult time rating this course, because the opportunity for a 3 star course is there. However, the massive amount of damage from Hurricane Sandy has left much of the course almost unplayable.
If you're the adventurous type, put on some high-ankle boots and hit the woods. Otherwise steer clear until it's cleaned up.
If you do go for a round, pay close attention to the course map in the woods. The tees are pretty accurately placed and you'll need to snoop around a bit through the uprooted trees. Hole 4 or 5 was particularly difficult, as a tree laid parallel to the path, in front of the tee.
