Pros: I live close to it. It doesn't take long to play. It's a convenient place to get a round in when you are pressed for time.
Low scores are possible. There are one or two very good holes. The long one down the powerline is very nice, as is hole #2. #16 is a fun downhiller with OB long, and #17 is a short, hard turning uphiller where a good righty two finger with something overstable works well.
Cons: Too tight for my liking. Birdies are there, but the element of luck is too predominant. Horribly rocky and very tough on plastic. That's no body's fault- It's on the top of a rocky mountain.
On the whole, either of the other two major Lehigh Valley courses, Parkway and Jordan, are a lot better.
Footing is treacherous- footwear offering ankle support is recommended.
The course was designed by newbie players, and it shows.
Other Thoughts: Not likely to make any experienced player's favorite list. But I still play here, and it's better than nothing. On further reflection, I've downgraded my rating. It's really not a very "good" course at all.

 Bring your old plastic and a spare set of ankles

Pros: Beautiful views and lots of elevation. Tight and very wooded. The friendly people who play here.
Cons: Rock outcroppings on first 5 or 6 holes. Awful tee pads. Poor signage makes it hard to find the next hole.
Other Thoughts: Make sure to bring old plastic to this course. No matter what plastic you bring, it will not be the same after the front 9. Each time your disc hits the rocks, I mean the ground, you've got a new scuff or gouge in your disc. If you've got new plastic you're trying to make unstable, this is the definitely the course to bring it to.

It's not a bad idea to bring a spare set of ankles either as your ankles will be tested the whole round.
