Pros: Lots of History in this park for Disc Golf. Trees and semi-open holes. (bad part of town, so be careful) Hard to find your way around the first time through. All around good course. (oldest permanent polehole course that still exists) Good use of the land available. Always people around. Holes can be kind of close to each other so watch out for errant throws. Everyone should play this course once, just for the history.

My local course
Pros: Short lengths perfect for beginners. Many elevation changes, obstacles, left & right doglegs. Hardy locals are always a good time.
Cons: Poor teebox conditions. Crowded. Signage is rarely accurate, and there is no signage for the 3rd 9 (play with a guide).

27 Mach 3 baskets
Pros: 27 holels...lots of league play on Thurs, Sat & Sunday...discs for sale usually during these times...friendly local golfers...historic old course..plenty of league competition can be found here...mostly shaded in the hot summer times...being the 1st course on the east course it is historic like the rest of Philadelphia...scorecards with a map generally available at the kiosk
Cons: crowded course since it is the only one in the Philly proper...short course...lots of trees...outback 19-27 has no tee signs yet, but directional arrows pointing you along the right way.
just minutes from the Philly Art Museum...if just visiting, drop the family off and come play disc golf.

Pros: 27 holes with baskets in fair shape. Mostly shorter holes with a few longer holes (most of the back 9, 2, 12. Some open fairways and some tighter ones. 3 tees to a basket. No water, and the holes steer clear of the road. Easy to find and just minutes from 76.
Cons: The only real bad marshy spot I found was the pin location at hole 20. The back 9 could use signs, but i found my way through with no problem. The holes are tight together, so watch out for groups in front of you when teeing.
Other Thoughts: The camaraderie here is almost second to none. Even an outsider would certainly feel welcome at the Woods. It seems peaceful despite the fact you are mere minutes from 76, and downtown Philly. If you're in Philly or close-by, take the time to check out one of the oldest courses in the world.
