Pros: multiple tees for different levels of play
baskets have arrows to get you to the next tees
baskets are either orange or have an orange number plate
you're at the beach!!! You can play 18 holes, go for a dip in the ocean, then come back for some more.
Cons: some of the tees are in poor shape
chains are very rusted on the baskets
there was a lot of standing water in areas that there were trees from heavy rains and flash flooding from several days before.
You can't see the basket from most of the higher level tees. The signage could use an update. You'll spend a lot of time marching up the sand to see if you can find the basket before you tee off.
Other Thoughts: I played Henlopen three years ago, the last time we vacationed in Lewes. It seems that several of the tees have been fixed, but there's a lot of work that the course needs. There were several holes that were completely unplayable because of water. Between holes 17 to 18, there were trees down blocking any walking paths.
If you're visiting, and it hasn't rained hard recently, then it's a nice vacation play in the sand if you need a break from the water.

Pros: Near Rehoboth Beach. Tee signs and tee pads on every hole. Some elevation changes. Nice use of vegetation.
Cons: Windy, not easy to navigate for first timers. Terrain is mostly sand, so difficult to walk on. Maybe wear sandals, my regular disc golf shoes filled with sand. $8 for non Delaware residents entrance fee.
Other Thoughts: Too little course for the high price admission. If you really need your disc golf fix while on vacation, play it, otherwise save your money for a better course.
