Peaceful with potential
0 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Wooded but not oppressive. Peaceful but not too isolated. In a state park offering other activities. Not far from route 50. Can pair with Peake. Holes 2 and 18 are open on one side. Tunnel hole14 will be fun when I have an aim.
Cons: Turning fairways require skill and strategy. Too many short, tight holes.
Other Thoughts: Eighteen holes in a dedicated setting is pretty nice. Pair it with Peake, both as secondary activity on your trip to/from the beaches.

Pros: Well displayed map of the course (found in parking lot)
Scorecards w/ map on the back and distances on the inside (located at sign @ parking lot prior to hole 1)
beginner friendly (had my oldest son join me for only the 3rd time)
camping (I likely won't return just to dg, but camping, fishing and dg hmmmm.)
Not a hard course but challenging enough to keep mot of us entertained.
Cons: Poison Ivy (son is very allergic and it is plentiful)
Bugs (I know we are outdoors, but it was bad)
No tee pads (and not level ground due to erosion and use)

fun short course
Pros: Score card with map available at first tee. First tee right at parking lot and 18 basket right next to the lot. Short course that offers a variety of shot choices. Beautiful park and course is nicely separated from it to avoid other park goers. Baskets are strategically blocked with trees.
Cons: Very tight fairways and if aim is not true you will end up in poison ivy. Tee boxes were worn down really bad and made for tough traction. No maps on the tee markers to show distance and how the hole plays.
Other Thoughts: What a fun little course. Do not let the distances of the holes fool you. You need to play a very strategic round to make par. Most holes have several trees in the fairways and guarding the baskets. The map on scorecard does not show all the trees that are in the flight path. I took my 12 year old with me and she enjoyed the course a lot. As a recreational player, I found the course was challenging and very fun to play. I will definitely play again.

Pros: The course was very fun! The hole distances were great for beginner disc golfers, like myself:)
Cons: The tunnel holes were somewhat narrow in some ways and it was deeply wooded, and there was also areas of the forest holes with poison ivy.
Other Thoughts: Don't forget your bug spray! There are bees, spiders, mosquitos, etc.

Great course for winter
Pros: Great variety in holes. Many doglegs both left and right, and tunnel holes with obstacles. Holes are mostly short, but require good accuracy. Inside a good park and never crowded and likely that you'll be the only one playing sometimes. Moderate difficulty with many risk/reward opportunities. There are nice scorecards and pens available at the large sign at the start of the course. Discs are also available at the park office. Fairways are usually maintained and cut low. Wind is rarely a problem since this course is somewhat forested.
Cons: VERY hard to find discs in summer. There is an extreme amount of plant,grass,and tree growth on every hole just outside the fairway. Par and distance info is sometimes hard to find on the wooden sticks indicating the tee for each hole, and sometimes non existent. Poison Ivy is present in almost every location outside of the fairways. Ticks and bugs can also be a problem. Sometimes the entrance to the parking lot is closed in the winter months, however most people park just outside the gate at hole 10 and start there. For people who like tee pads, unfortunately there are none here, and some tee areas are in need of some work because the dirt has eroded away and created a small hole.
Other Thoughts: This course is a bit underrated if you consider that it provides a better variety and more interesting round than most courses in the region if you can get past the dangerous "rough". A good shot is usually a potential ace or an easy birdie, but a bad shot can be big trouble since the wooded areas are so thick with plants. Many people complain about the ticks, bugs and poison ivy, but that's part of disc golf so I don't hold it against the course. This course drastically changes from summer to winter, In the summer, it can be a very difficult course due to the excess plant life, and the other seasonal cons mentioned above, however this course has very few if any cons for winter when the leaves have fallen off of the trees and the insects/poison ivy are gone. If it were possible to give this course a seasonal rating, I would give it a (4) in summer and a (5) in winter.

Tuckahoe State Park DGC
Pros: When first getting into the park there is a sign that will point you in the right direction to the disc golf course. Once on the disc golf course navigation is very simple with hole 12 being the only hard hole to find due to a sign that seemed to have fallen from the tree. Rounds here are very fast, only took me an hour, which is great if you don't have a lot of time to spend. The course itself has plenty of short "ace run" holes which at times made the course a bit exciting. No practice tee but there is a field to practice your drives on for when you get done or before you start playing. Discs are for sale at the office if you want to purchase any and there is a bulletin board with rules/map/news/events just in front of the parking area.
Cons: When pulling up to the course I couldn't help but notice right away that hole 15 and 18 were extremelly close to the parking area. The course is short. I only got the chance to really grip and rip on a drive on maybe one hole here. The course lacks any type of elevation at all. Baskets are Discatcher baskets but they cheaped out on them as there is only the outer layer of chains present which made for a few annoying bounce outs that would have never happened if there was the two layer chains there. Hole 2's basket is a bit mangeled but still playable. There is no real set teepad with the only thing that marks where your supposed to tee off is a pole in the ground with the holes number on it. Distances and par information is sharpied on pole. On most holes I was able to see what side of the pole to tee off from the lack of grass but on some holes I really just had to guess left or right. The course's layout is a bit dangerous with holes 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, and 18 being near roads. To add to the course's dangers, holes 3 and 14 play using the same fairway in opposite directions. The rest of the course does play fairly close to each other so if there is mulitple people playing the course it is a good idea to keep a 2-3 hole buffer between groups.
Other Thoughts: This course is a good course to go to if you want to practice your approach game and putting game or even bring a beginner. There is no practice basket but as long as the course isn't being used by anybody else you can easily use baskets 15 and 18 to warm up. Just beyond hole 1 there is also a field that you can practice driving in. The course is generally a boring course and the reason I say that is because there is a lack of being able to be creative here. The layup shots are sometimes the absolute only shot that you have available. There is no real chance to let your disc "fly". The only excitement I found myself having while playing was the ability to go for an ace on a few of the holes.When playing this course you really need to be on your toes as the dangers in this course are ever prevelent. I was the only one playing when I went but had there been other people on the course I really would have had to watch where and when I was throwing as to not hit anybody. There is also the dangers of hitting vehicles as many holes play close to the roads and a couple holes play close to the parking area. The rest of the park also has more to offer thana just disc golf and can be nice to check out. Some f the activities include; canoeing, kayaking, boating, fishing, hiking, hunting, cycling, camping, swimming, and much more. The park itself is a great place to really enjoy the outdoors.

Pros: 18 holes with tee posts with sharpied distances, and discatcher baskets. Mostly wooded with a variety of turning fairways. Good variety of hole distances. Course drains well and well maintained. Navigation was stupid simple. Portapottie.
Cons: Basket 2 is a little mangled, guessing from a mower. Rough is very rough with lots of poison ivy and fairways are rather narrow and winding with blind landings galore. High potential for disc loss...I lost my putter off the tee of hole 16. Some of the holes play too close to each other with baskets near tees. Biting flies were nasty the whole course even while it was raining.
Other Thoughts: The course is totally devoid of any elevation and ground is quite sandy and unstable due to the natural topography of the area. Natural tees were ok here, the sandy soil probably keeps from rutting and I doubt the course see much foot traffic anyways.
There is good variety of hole distances however I felt like a lot of the holes were not really golf shots despite looking like good holes due to the narrow winding fairways and tough rough combined with blind landings force you to throw short and insight. There are a few holes I though were ok, but overall the course lacks much fun factor and replay-ablitly for me. You aren't really missing anything if you don't make it here, but if you are nearby it's ok, just stay in the fairway.
Getting to the course...follow signs to the camping grounds of the Tuckahoe state park and then follow signs to the course. You will see baskets on the right when you first enter the park campground and then turn right. Tee for hole 1 is right by the course map by the tiny parking lot. I missed it and went to hole 2 first, thinking basket 1 was a practice basket.

i enjoyed this course
Pros: very technical course, trees dog legs and roads. it plays nice and short but some of the holes feel long because of the difficulty.
Cons: i can't really think of any cons for this course other than the fact that theres not really any teeboxes. all they are is two blocks sunk in the ground to sygnify where you are to throw between
Other Thoughts: although it is a lil over an hour drive to this course i will return to this course many times
