Drowning my discs in the Condoguniet
Pros: 18 holes with DIS cathcer baskets, easy to see. Some longer holes mixed in with shorter deuce runs. Lots of challenge with the Condoguinet lurking in 11 of the 18 holes. Lots of OB between the creek and the backyards, making for tighter play. Short jr. tees makes it easier for kids to pick up the game as well as making it harder for them to get wet. Well marked, with arrows below the baskets. Easy to find, not far from 11/15 and the closest course to the state capital, Harrisburg. Glad they got rid of the mando on seven. The elevated 16th tee is a killer, an "empty your bag" downhill. Ropes are provided, and steps are well crafted. Course mostly plays away from pedestrians and playground, but still take care when throwing.
Cons: Did I fail to mention the Condoguinet? Being a riverside course, the course is often marshy in lots of places. I'd bet if they would have no rain for a week, then you'd go, it would look like it just downpoured yesterday. If the parking lot is crowded, it might be tight squeezing out of there, but it probably would only be tight for tournaments.
Other Thoughts: They made several changes since my May '08 visit. Several new challenges have been added, they eliminated that "roller shot" on 7 (thankfully, in my opinion), and the new 16th tee is the bomb. Great work on the course, and may the Condoguinet be spared any more plastic.

Don't fear the creek
Pros: Although not a "big arm" course it is enough to frustrate and challenge any golfer. The Conodoguinet Creek has a never ending hunger for plastic but the local club (Creekside Crawdads) perform frequent creek walks for those who don't like to get wet or if the creek is high, as long as your name and number are on your discs they make every effort to get them back to their rightful owners. It's an easy course to navigate with tee signs and basket arrows pointing where to go. Six holes have alternate pin locations and two holes have alternate tee positions offering different looks and challenges.
Cons: There are concrete tee pads on every hole but they could be a bit bigger. For those who love elevation changes, you won't see it here.
Other Thoughts: It's a great course for beginners and experts alike from hole 1's ace run shot to the hanging basket on the long and difficult hole 14. With it being more open it makes for excellent GLOW golf, with the baskets being equipped to hold tiki torches to light up the night. The reader board at the parking lot has contact information for the "lead" Crawdads who live right off the course, give em a call when you're there as they love to throw with new comers to the park.
