Some isolated areas are very muddy but can mostly be avoided. Otherwise in very good shape.

Opened in 2006, the course takes its name from three fishing lakes and a healthy deer herd in this 1,180 acre regional Allegheny County park. The par-66 disc golf course features a front and back nine layout that loop from the Blue Gill parking lot. Two practice baskets, bathrooms and a pavilion are among the park facilities available to disc golfers.
