Pros: A nice course tucked in the middle of Pensylvania. Plays up, down and across an old ski hill used by the college in the Winter time. Plenty of variety where you have a few holes playing through woods, a few holes playing up the hill, and a few holes playing down the hill and a few holes playing across the hill. Long tees are a bit tougher but fair overall. Very fun course!

Pros: Great course for elevation, distance, shot selection, you can't help but want to empty your bag on 18. Good mix of terrain use. Very hilly and some holes play down a path(14) or an alley of pines(15). Fairways are well groomed and just beggin you to try a roller a two around the stands of pines. Indiana County is the Christmas tree capital of the world after all.
Cons: Be prepared to hike! Long course from the blue tees throws add up quickly if you go off the fairway. Tee areas in wet weather are dangerous, as well as non discers utilizing the the courses other amenities. finding all your discs after you emptied your bag on 18!!!
Other Thoughts: I will be returning to College Lodge for the PA state championships again and looking forward to it. The 4 hour drive from Harrisburg sucks though, but 18 is calling!!!

Pros: This is a very fun course that you will be telling your buddies about for a while. Obviously, being on a ski hill, be prepared to hike. A lot. The signs are very nice, and the variety and challenge is never ending. Very picturesque as well.
Other Thoughts: I have made it to The Lodge for two tournies, and am planning on going back. It is such a fun course to play, demanding quite a few shots that most golfers don't have the privilege of throwing everyday. Not many places offer an 800ft closing hole! There can be some conflict with other IUP students depending on what's going on at the time, but it is usually avoidable. I know sledding prevents permanent pads, but if you play here in the rain you'll wish for them. I tell everybody that asks about this course, it's well worth the trip, but you better pack a lunch!

 Great Variety

Pros: You might need to use every shot in your bag on this course. Short little technical shots and long bomber shots will be used at the Lodge. One of the best finishing holes in DG. Excellent signage. If you play in the evening hours you'll have a good chance of seeing widelife. Please don't throw at the deer.
Cons: Would be nice to have concrete tee pads. Be prepared to hike. Hole #4 is straight up the former ski hill. Baskets get pulled between Dec and April every year for sled riding.
Other Thoughts: This is my home course and where I learned to play. Since the land is owned by IUP, the local college, there are strict rules about alcohol and whatnot. Please don't mess around!!! The baskets have been pulled in the past because of people not following these rules.

 One big adrenaline rush

Pros: The tees are well marked, the baskets are numbered, and signs are everywhere they need to be to make navigating this course a breeze. This is great since I finished each hole completely psyched to find out what kind of hole would be next. The course has big uphills and big downhills, both in the open and in the woods. This place is a disc golf roller coaster.
Cons: There is some overlap of the disc golf course with an exercise trail, but it wasn't too crowded so not much of an issue.
Other Thoughts: While it doesn't quite have the technical pedigree of nearby championship courses, the fun factor more than makes up for it. If you can handle some big time up and down hill hiking, play this one, and have a blast.

 Nice Recreational Course

Pros: Decent signage. Nice recreational 18 hole course. Hole 18 makes a nice end to the day with a downhill 800 ft shot. good mix of woods and wide open. Nice use of elevation and landscaping.
I had the whole course to myself the entire time.
Cons: Many blue tees were hard to find or missing. I had to switch from blue to white frequently to keep up the pace of the game.
Other Thoughts: when packing your bag be ready for some narrow areas. Hole 15 is really narrow, bring a straight shooter.
There is a 9 hole course very close by if you want to turn this into a 27 (but don't expect the same quality)

 Quiet and Challenging

Pros: Lots of fun and long downhill shots as well as some challenging holes in the woods. Very well maintained.
Cons: Lots of hill climbing (but it is a lot of fun coming back down).
Other Thoughts: IUP has to be one of the hilliest and quietest courses I've had the opportunity to play. Holes #9 and #18 are the types of holes where you'll just empty your bag throwing down the huge hills. The only thing that could have made those two holes more fun is if the old ski lift was working so I could play them again without walking up the hill!

Hole #15 also stood out in my mind. It was as if someone built a hallway out of trees, definitely a pretty cool hole. Overall I really enjoyed this course. The quiet and peaceful atmosphere there made for a fun and relaxing round. If you have a chance to stop by IUP then by all means do it, I will definitely try to get back there at some point to throw a few more down the slopes.
