Fun but flat

Pros: Great use of available space. Very nice tee pads and a well maintained park. There is also a nice play area for children so it's a nice place to take the whole family. I also like the interesting use if dirt mounts to add some obstacles and "terrain" on this otherwise flat park.
Cons: There is essentially no elevation changes. The front 9 does not loop back to the parking lot so once you start you are mostly committed to playing 18 which is only a problem for me when I bring my young son and he can only handle 9 at a time.
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed playing here. There are many opportunities to send a full drive down range and young trees provide more obstacles than they would seem to given their size. The people who maintain the course do an excellent job. The whole park is very clean and nicely landscaped.

If it's on your way, then play

Pros: Interesting structures used to shape shots: mounded hills, stone walls, wood structures, wishing wells on top of hills.
Two tee positions per hole.
Cons: Flat, flat, flat.
High grass makes discs hard to find.
Navigation can be a bit confusing with how tight the layout is.
Other Thoughts: They did a great job with a flat piece of land; the mounds and hand-made obstacles give it a folk-art disc golf feel. Not a destination course, but for North Central PA residents it is...

Pros: This is a decent course on a flat plot of land. There are some man-made mounds which make a nice addition to the flat park.
The course was well maintained and had nice sized trapezoid tee pads. The tee signs give all the info you need. Navigation was easy with no map.

Other Pros:
- bag hooks
- kiosk with scorecards and a place to write your ace
- pond in play on 2 holes
- some holes with multiple tees
- some holes with multiple baskets
- rock wall guarding 17's basket
- practice basket
Cons: This is a very hilly area but the park is completely flat except for those man-made mounds. The throws all seemed straight with very few obstacles.

Other Cons:
- tall grass in the rough
- after #16 you cross #4 fairway
Other Thoughts: The buildings near the parking were under construction while I was there. It didn't effect the disc golf and there were porta-potties to use.

I thought the designer did a nice job with the land provided.
The course was a nice stop to break up a long trip but it's not a destination course.

Fun but unforgiving

Review By: vicious
Played: 5  Reviewed: 3  Exp: 6.5 Years
Pros: Long holes
Very open
Good for every throw
Great signs with diagrams and bag hooks
Concrete tees are excellent
Elevated tee pad for holes 13 and 15 is great
Cons: The pond is a great target for a bomb from either tee that faces it
The brush is hard to navigate through and finding a disc can be rough or impossible
Holes could have more variety instead of just throwing as far as you can
Other Thoughts: This course is a ton of fun especially on a great day. The first half of the course is a lot of fun, but by the time you get around to holes 11-16 you may be beat after looking for your discs in the shrubbery.

Pros:
Tee areas: All holes, except #13, have tall tee posts, containing a map of the hole, and bag hooks. 10' long, rough concrete, trapezoidal tee pads near the tee posts. Many holes also had alternate (shorter) tee locations, 3'x6' rubber mats. Benches every few holes.

While I'm generally wary of playing a course sans map, this course was a cinch to navigate. All baskets but 15-17 had a "next tee" arrow atop them.

Practice basket.

Number-18 is nicely appointed - a mound of red mulch at the midpoint, with '18' "written" on its side using small white stones, with another mound guarding the basket, and an American flag far in the background.
Cons:
FLAT.

Mostly need to just throw straight, although a few right-turns are needed.
Other Thoughts:
The course plays in the flat, open space, located at the back of a public park, and is bounded by hedgerows and farm fields. Obstacles are few and far between on this course, so the length (average ~350'), and the seemingly omnipresent wind, will provide the greatest challenges. Other challenges include:
- About the holes border fields/hedgerows, so too much turn/fade could cause problems
- About 1/3rd of the baskets are located behind man-made mounds of grass/mulch (or a stone wall, as in the case of #17)
- Holes 13 and 15 have alternate hanging baskets. Holes 5 and 11 also had alternate baskets
- A lot of small trees and bushes have been planted where 8-16 reside, but they are many years away from affecting flight paths

Course has lots of nice touches, but there's only so much one can do with a flat, open field.

Pros: Good length
Very open course with a few challenging holes that play along the woods/brush.
Most of the holes have posts with signs and hooks to hang your bag. These are new and all the holes should have these posts soon.
Because of how open the course is, it is very easy to get around for first time players.
Cons: When it's a windy day, Lime Bluff becomes extremely difficult. Don't expect to do well when windy. Also, if it's rained, the course becomes a swamp. Water doesn't drain well at all.
Hole 9 doesn't meet back with the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: Overall, there aren't too many courses in the area, so Lime Bluff is an excellent course. Good distance course for big arms. Because it's open, it makes it also a good course for beginners too. They won't get the best scores and will probably be frustrated.
There are a lot of flaws in the course that can't be fixed. The course becomes a complete swamp when it rains (to the point of not worth playing unless you're playing with a group). I drive 30-45 mins to play this when I visit my in-laws because it's the closest to their home. It is worth playing if you're in the area and you want some practice playing in the wind.

 Nice Place!

Pros: Open Flat field
Easy to Navigate
Long Shots
Skill Shots
This course is a new favorite of mine for the fact that it IS wide open. There is a lot of room for error here for the beginner. As long as the Soy Beans on the left side of 3 don't get you and the water at the back of 5 and 6, players can make the whole course without losing a single disc.
Cons: Windy - this course is in an open field on top of a mountain, it seems to me that the breeze that blows there constantly will have some affect on your game. other than that I was VERY happy with this one.
Other Thoughts: Bring a lot of water and possibly an umbrella for portable shade. There are trees but the shade is VERY scarce on this course.

not much traffic

plain flat open field

Pros: The distance veneration is good the course is well maintained and the traffic is low.
Cons: Its 100% flat and the only water is the very small pond. All woods is to the right of the Tee which could put some players at a disadvantage

 Great use of a mediocre park

Pros: The course plays through a large area in a multi-use park, but doesn't conflict with any other park uses. There is no natural elevation, but many holes have man made obstacles like rock walls or earth mounds to add some interest. There is a small pond that adds a nice risk/reward element to one hole. There is a good variety of lengths here, from ace runs to holes that leave room to really rip a drive. The wind rips across the flat open space, and adds a nice challenge.

There are nice concrete tees for every hole that were in good shape and provided good footing even in the early morning dew. The signs were easy to read and made it very easy to navigate the course, with no places where it was difficult to find the basket or the next tee.

It's clear a ton of work has gone into this course to build/make the obstacles and keep it in great shape. The small trees will eventually help make this course more challenging and interesting, kudos to the locals who are working hard to improve the course.
Cons: The course is flat and wide open. There aren't really places where a specific line is called for, you can pretty much get to all the holes with any throw you prefer, with only wind as an obstacle. The design does a great job maximizing the potential of the space, but there's only so much you can do with a former corn field. When the trees grow up, this will be a much better course.

There had been a recent rain when I played, and a large portion of the course was quite swampy. Make sure you're prepared for lots of standing water and mud if you play when there has been precipitation in the last week or so.
Other Thoughts: This course is a great place for beginners to learn the game, and to learn how to play in the wind. There aren't many obstacles, but there is a mix of reachable holes and ones that newer players will have to throw multiple drives on. More experienced players will likely find the course a bit repetitive and boring.

The course is an ok place for a fairly quick and easy round. Don't drive way out of your way just to play here, but it's a fun stop if you're passing by.
