Pros: It is big enough that you shouldn't have problems on a busy day. It's nice to just practice here.
Cons: It's not very challenging, mostly open holes with just two in a wooded area. Very busy park everwhere, they just extended the walking trail so you have to watch for runners and bikers on a few holes.
Other Thoughts: This course alright, but I woukd prefer to drive firther for a more rewarding experience.

Pros: Scenic course with a few holes near a lake. Mostly open and with some longer holes if you want a chance to rip some drives. Most holes are flat, but you do play up and down this one big hill. The tee signs are smaller but still give good info.

Two holes were especially nice. #2 plays over the water to a peninsula. #17 is a great hole that requires a low, straight tee shot as the fairway is lined with a row of large trees on both sides.
Cons: Natural tees. The stretch of holes that circled the park were a little tricky to navigate, and played close to other aspects of the park. Hole #11 is tight and a little ridiculous, and uncharacteristic of the rest of the park (just look at the picture!)

I vaguely remember something shady about #12 as well- either couldn't find it, or no basket, or out of the way, and there is no picture of it on this site, so someone else must have the same problem!!!
Other Thoughts: Water is nearby for #3 and #4, but shouldn't be a factor for most people.

There was an entrance gate, but we parked in the gravel lot just before the gate and walked to hole #1 avoiding having to pay (by direction of the gate worker). But according to this site you no longer have to pay.

Overall not a bad course, but not a great one either. The lake is nice, and about half of the holes are pretty good. But it might get a little boring for some people as there are a few holes that are just a tee and a basket in an open field.

So many awesome alternatives nearby, but there are also some worse courses in this area, too.

Pros: This course plays along the edge of a lake, and is picturesque. AJ Jolly offers the opportunity to really crush a drive on several holes, but most of the tee shots play around 300 feet.

There are a few holes where the water comes into play, and even though it is manageable, it makes for an interesting shot.

There are a few really neat holes at this course, which make it stand out from others in the area.
Cons: The layout is somewhat confusing to someone playing it for the first time.

A few of the holes went near park roads, or pavillions where people have picnic lunches.
Other Thoughts: This course is physically very beautiful and well maintained. This course may not be as challenging or versatile as the others in the area, but it is worth playing if you are spending time in the area.

Banklick and Idlewild are just up the road.
