A nifty set of nine
Pros: Even after playing several other more impressive courses in the Allentown area, I still had a good time playing here. Some of the pros include:
- water hazards (the little stream is in play for several holes)
- Nice technical shots (#3 and 4 in particular) are balanced by some open-air bombs.
- signage is good and holes are easy to find.
All in all, this little course is more difficult than meets the eye, but is still very do-able for a beginner. In fact, I think it's a great place to introduce someone to the game (see below).
Cons: - a lot of clutter with the pavilions, pool equipment, and other miscellaneous garbage, although they don't really interfere with any holes. It's more of an eyesore than anything.
- posted signs make the place a little unfriendly. I had this feeling that the cops were going to come the whole time and I wasn't even doing anything wrong. It also makes you think twice about throwing any errant discs.
- The par fours are a little generous -- especially with number 7. I think this shot can easily be achieved in 3 tries.
- some holes are very short (< 200 feet)
Other Thoughts: All things considered, this is a very nice nine hole course. I would kill for a course like this near my hometown for a quick round.
I recommend playing here after a day of rounds at Little Lehigh Parkway and Jordan Creek as a way of relaxing and restoring your ego. This is also a great place to introduce someone to disc golf since it contains, in my opinion, many of the elements needed for a true disc golf experience: water hazards, open air bombs, tight wooded technical shots, and doglegs -- all without being too terribly challenging!
