Nice change of scenery
Pros: Sand Dunes make this course challenging. Many holes have up to three tees to throw from. Some tees are elevated on sides of hills providing a unique look and starting point. Good variety of shots from open to wooded alleys.
Cons: Course signage can be improved especially marking the direction of the next tee. Some tees have loose boards and holes. Also, some are literally buried in the sand. Chains on gates have been heavily affected by the salt.
Other Thoughts: Played this course on an overcast day which was perfect for beating the heat. Enjoye the change in scenery because I am used to playing wooded courses. Hole 14b is memorable where the pin is located on the tip of a steep hillside. Will definitely be visiting the course again.

Work on that tomahawk/thumber
Pros: Differently interesting. Playing in the sand was more difficult than I thought it would be, as (perhaps obviously) it's tough to get much on those long fairway shots.
Nice little store near the course that sells discs (but no water :( ) with a kindly park official who couldn't get the change drawer open when I bought an Xpress...easiest donation he ever received.
Cons: Ooooooollllllddddd signage and par designations. These circa 1980 metal signs with bad hole maps on them were as often misleading as they were correct. The fact that the course is in transition makes this doubly frustrating.
Very little in the way of course amenities. I did not find out until later in the day that Delaware has this "carry in-carry out" policy about their parks...which is no big deal really, but the occasional bench and/or trash can is nice IMO.
$8 out of state to park there, as you most likely know by now. I didn't care because I was on vacation, but this would be a negative if I were planning to drive from Maryland or something.
HOT HOT HOT midday. I'm so glad I played in the morning, because I might have dehydrated if I played it in the afternoon during the summer. All that sunshine bouncing off the sand...eeep.
If you can keep the disc high and level with little fade, you will do well here. If you have a killer tomahawk, you will own this place. There were sufficient obstacles for a player like me that depends on a low drive, but I know a couple players that lean on the overhand shots that would have an unfair advantage here. There are a couple holes that simply DO NOT HAVE A LINE if you don't have a good overhand.
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed myself here despite the negatives, mostly because it was so different from anything I've ever done before. I can definitely see that this is a "love it or leave it" course.
The locals are obviously putting some love into this course, and I bet when they are done (hopefully the signage will be part of your renovation) it will be a 3.5 or so. It's cool enough to deserve the attention imo, kudos to you guys.
If I found myself near it again, I'd play it...but I wouldn't go out of my way for this course. (Sorry, guys)

Good times on the BEACH
Pros: Multiple tee pad locations per hole (Red/White/Blue)
Sign on all 18 holes at White tee location showing distance, basket location, & pars
Permanent 18 baskets with what looks to be another 9-18 being built
Cons: $8.00 per car to play at this park
Be prepared to walk in the sand throughout the entire course!
At times it can be difficult to find alternate tee pad locations as there's only one sign per hole on White tees
Can't see the baskets location from tee pad on a majority of the holes
Basket 1 & 18 on opposite sides of the course
Difficult at times to navigate from one hole to the next
Other Thoughts: Overall I enjoyed the experience & may go back to play. I'd recommend others to play here as well

Pros: Interesting course! Boardwalk teepads and constant sand give it a beach feel, but I hop that you don't hope for rolls/skips in the sand!
Beach is very closeby: Within the park!
Cons: Sand gets in shoes, boardwalk tees can be rickety, hard to see basket from tee.
Other Thoughts: Cool course. I would come back for sure. It's certainly different from other Delmarva courses I've played!

Pros: Unique course over the sand dunes. loved the Wooden decks used for T pad.
Park is clean and easy to navigate.
Cons: I cheat I have a spotter point the direction I need to throw, Also helps find errant discs. Bugs and heat are the devil from the end of July to the first of August
Other Thoughts: If you like to play unique courses. This is a must. Yeah you have to pay but you will not be bored playing this course

sand in your shoes
Pros: Lots of elevation changes. Blinds shots that I felt you couldn't loose your disc on. The sand if you fancy that, the park it is located is fantastic spend the day on the beach.
Cons: Little hard to navigate for the first time. Walking in the sand is though.
Other Thoughts: I played this course after a long day of other DE courses and it was the highlight, i think because of the great difference the sand and mix of blind and elevation.
