Default New Championship Course-Pittsburgh, PA Est. 2018

Coming next year in Cranberry Township, PA, a city 30 minutes outside of downtown Pittsburgh, 40 minutes from two top 25 courses (Moraine State Park and Deer Lakes Park) and 15 minutes from the highly rated Knob Hill Park, (All Worlds Courses from 2015) is a new course at North Boundary Park.

This course will be designed to be one of the best, set through the woods on the unchartered territory next to this park. Hilly terrain, mature trees will set this course up to be one of the most challenging in the area.

Every year, the Cranberry Township community has a project of the year, (POTY) and this year it is the new Disc Golf Course, as well as nature trails at the North Boundary Park. For this project, there will be an overall budget of 265,000 dollars, which will obviously be enough for a world-class course.

The course will have three sets of concrete tee pads, and from the long tees will be a 10,000+ foot layout, challenging the toughest of pros, while the shorts will be tough, but accessible for the more recreational player. It will be designed by the same people that brought the World's courses, headlined by Hall of Famer and Innova Ambassador Team member J. Gary Dropcho.

Along with the 18 hole course, a permanent six hole ADA accessible/Learn to play/Warm-up course will be placed on site to introduce new players to the game. On top of that, a temporary putter course will be set up at the Cranberry Community day July 12-14, 2017 to help grow the sport in the area.

I look forward to updating this thread as time goes on, and I hope that people are excited for this course. As good as the club and courses are in this area, this course will for sure provide a world class course to an already established disc golf mecca.

Please feel free to ask questions as this is all put in to place!

Sounds like a great addition to what was already a wonderful DG city. I hope the enlist the right people to design it.

I've seen examples of cities saying they were putting in championship caliber courses that ended up fair to middlin'... or worse.

It's the same designer as Moraine and Deer Lakes. (J Gary Dropcho) HOFer and Innova Ambassador.

The land is nice for it too. A temporary map is made, definitely not final, but it looks great.

Been there, done that, enjoyed it! Want to make sure new course is ready to go before repeating, but thanks for the heads up!

Definitely excited for this. Having some substantial funding and J Gary as a designer, I can't see how this will be anything but awesome. Do you know how soon construction is starting? Like is this a spring install for the 2018 season, or a summer/fall one to be fully playable 2019? Is the local PFDS club assisting and/or looking for volunteers?

Do you have access to the draft layout?

I live nearby and would be more than happy to help out/volunteer to keep costs down, any info on that?

If anybody was interested in the layout of the course, the elevation, and some more details, check out this link here!

Some highlights, over 10,000 feet from the longs, 3 concrete teepads, future additions. Yeah, it's gonna be good.
