A Surprisingly Interesting Layout
Pros: For what I think was a Boy Scout project from ten years ago, it's actually an interesting and fun layout with nine unique holes. Good variety and use of elevation and trees, and it's cool how most of the course is on the inside of the horseshoe-shaped path of the Little Conestoga Creek.
Having played the course in the early 2000's and not having been back until now, I was surprised by how much fun some of the holes
were. #4 is a cool little ace run 150' down the side of the hill through tight woods. #5 plays down a long alley along the creek under a canopy of trees.
Cons: There are a couple playability and safety issues. Hole #1 was designed as a short throw over the creek, but riparian vegetation and trees planted since the course has basically eliminated all options except a thumber. Hole #9 is also a throw over the creek that turns right blind and puts pedestrians in danger.
You can't really play the course using the tee post as a tee. You sort of have to look at the 30' radius around the post and determine what would make sense.
Other Thoughts: Navigation is not very tough. Look for #3 post up toward the volleyball courts slightly hidden in pine trees. Look for #6 down the path and hook to the right. #9 is across the creek and in the back right corner of the picnic area near the creek.
This course has a lot of potential to be turned into a good 9-hole course because of its layout and land. Baskets could be installed and tees re-placed and the layout tweaked (modify #1 and #9), and I'd love to have this park nearby.

Pros: Course makes good use of the land available. Holes range from 101 to 380 ft. 2 holes require a short throw over the creek, but can still be tough with the brush and trees on the bank. For the most part holes are designed to stay away from other park users. Rest rooms available. Plenty of parking.
Cons: Tees are marked with posts in the ground. Course is an object course with 4x4 posts about 4 ft high. Most holes are straight with not much to have to avoid. One holes requires a throw across a walking path.
Other Thoughts: Only 2 holes actually require a throw over water but there are 4 more holes that go near the creek and with an errant throw, you could end up in the creek. Creek is clear and not too deep. Disc retrieval should not be a problem. Some holes have small trees planted in the fairways which will make the course better in 5+ years. Would get another 1 star if course would have baskets instead of being an object course.
