Excellent Wooded Course
2 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Excellent signage. Course plays through some great terrain and will force you to play a technical game. Many of the holes are short and make for easy birdies. A few hole when thrown correctly are designed for an ace.
Cons: The cell tower fenced in area is a burden as it is on one of the most open holes.

Great course, easy access from turnpike
Pros: Great disc golf course close to the turnpike. Definitely worth the trip.
The course is very pretty and winds through a very picturesque park with evergreen and deciduous woods and a creek. Average recreational players like myself can get many birdies here. The drives are somewhat technical with the trees and turns (majority of drives are right and left doglegs), but mostly short.
Great signage and directions to the next tee. It is difficult to lose your way with arrows on every basket pointing to the next tee.
The tees are concrete and of varied size. Some tees are very short, but so are the distances to the pin. Originally going to put it as a con but the small tees were fine for those baskets. One hole (10? something around there) has a choice of a hyzer or anhyzer line and the tee is widened and pointed in both directions. Neat idea although not necessary (does anyone actually take that anhyzer route here? seems a little out-of-the-way).
Tall poles with flags on the out-of-view baskets. It is a nice touch.
Care was obviously taken in putting this course together.
Cons: A few shots in the back 9 that were not very memorable.
Lots of thorns in the rough.
A few short holes, but I thought they worked well and were all tight lines -- hit it right and you had a birdie, but these were hard to bogie. Not really a con, just worth mentioning.
Other Thoughts: Worth the trip -- stop here off the turnpike at the Carlisle exit. The route my GPS took me was blocked by a closed bridge -- don't take Wolfs Creek road (or something like that) from the turnpike like your GPS tells you.
Now I know the easy way to get here from the turnpike, I will make this a stop when driving through PA. You can do 18 pretty quickly and be back on your way, 5 minutes to and from 76.
[EDIT 11/5/13: I am updating to 4 stars in view of my thoughts on this since playing. The course was just so nice and well kept that I thought it was merited...definitely the 4 stars if a few very short holes don't turn you off, and if you can get past 2 or so weak ones]

Pros: Concrete Tees completed in all holes. Arrows on the bottom of each basket tells you which way to head next, and there's usually a nice "pathway" to the next tee area. Challenging course.
Cons: Woods, woods, woods. The woods is not the problem, but some holes have a very narrow driving area, unless you can throw straight, you'll hit some trees. Bridges to go over the creek not completed as of today.
Other Thoughts: Nice hike! It is challenging with the woods, and hiking up and down hills, very good lay out. Can't wait for the bridges to be completed so there will be a little less mud on my shoes next time. There are some branches and logs laid across for now, but you'll still get mud.
