Cool. Can't wait to come check it out. Moraine is still my #1 from what I've played.

What are you all doing for baskets, do you know yet? Make/Model?

Any updates on the course development?

I drove through the park a few weeks ago but it looked like most of the course is set in the woods so I didn't see much.

I have not updated this thread in a while, but thought I'd give a quick update...

All 18 baskets are in, almost every hole has three concrete tee pads poured, tee signs will be in within the next two months, and the club continues to clear brush, trim trees, and make improvements every week.

While the course is still rough around the edges, it is shaping up to be a absolute monster. The elevation change and overall distance make it a 3 hour round. If you are in the area, I would consider it playable, but it won't be tournament ready for another few months. Hopefully by Spring of next year it will be ready for events.

I'll be headed to Pittsburgh this weekend and plan on hitting North Boundary (along with Moraine and Deer Lakes). I'll probably get a round in at North Boundary on Friday afternoon and Sunday morning. Is it obvious where the first tee is? Are there tee signs yet? Is it easy enough to navigate for a solo first-timer? Any other pieces of advice?

Default Four Miles?

Here is a public radio report on the course that claims players will have to walk four miles to play 18 holes.

Very close to true. I’ve probably played the course 5 times now, and it’s a workout for sure. Probably the most of any course I’ve played. Loads of fun though. Tee signs and more will be added this spring, official opening is in June.

My home courses are both at about 6,400 feet in total tee-to-basket distance. I have always figured that playing each course is a little less than a two mile walk. Even at ~10,000 feet, it's hard to imagine four miles unless there is an awful lot of walking between baskets and tees or severe elevation with switchback trails or something like that. It still sounds like an awesome course, but four miles of walking for one round - .

Here you go (only copypasta the URL after the equals sign, not the yutobe.com/watch? part)

EDIT: The URL you linked was weird, I had to go to the DGE youtube page and re-click on the video to get a normal one.
