Pros: Plays around the perimeter of the park, and as such you're always pretty close to where you parked. Many holes incorporate both the old-growth forest surrounding the pond and the grass field. Well-worn and defined throwing lanes. Many alternate pin placements (1 basket per hole). Modest length good for beginners. Dated signage, but signage nonetheless. Good variety of left-and-right shots.
Cons: Pond doesn't come into play, a wasted opportunity. Concrete tees are made of uneven tiles. Holes 2-4 flood often. No elevation. Wish the field was used for a few wide-open holes. Seems like the whole course could use a sprucing-up. Bathrooms closed for the season in winter.
Other Thoughts: Not only does Delaware charge for using its state parks, it's obviously biased against disc golfers. No less than 4 signs while driving in state that no alcohol is allowed in "area 1" aka the disc golf area, though it's allowed everywhere else.

Pros: Mostly wooded. A mix of short and longer holes. A fun course that wasn't to challenging but not to easy as well. A good course to take a beginner to introduce them to the game. You will use a lot of different shots as I thought hole variation was really well done
Cons: out of state entry fee (I believe 5$ or more)

Pros: Fairly flat with relatively new baskets. Concrete tees add stability.
Cons: Between 5 of us, we must have hit 100 trees. Very hard to not hit a tree on a drive. The tee signs need a little work.
They should utilize some of that open land for extra holes.
Other Thoughts: Nice place with a great pond. However, the pay to play factor is just too great during the summer when I make the 2 hr. trip there.

Pros: The surrounding park is very nice. Course is labeled well and is flat, which makes it easy to walk. Some holes require good course management skills. A good variety of holes.
Cons: Many trees. Some holes are very difficult to get a good tee shot off (#6 & 12 come to mind).

Can get very muddy & it takes some time to dry out (especially holes #3).
Other Thoughts: Nice course to bring a beginner to, as the holes are mostly short & there's little rough to lose your disc in.

Pros: Challenging and fun with many different shots required. Unusual in the fact that every hole can be birdied but only 3 of them can be considered easy (2,7,14) with another 3 being down right hard. (4,9,16).
Restrooms and nice lake.
Cons: Would be great if it could be expanded. Pay to play. Often wet and muddy around the lake. A few tees are sub standard. Hole two is nothing without the mando and really just gets in the way of holes 1,3,4,5.
Other Thoughts: This course isn't great by today's standard but the in and out of the woods shots and the technical nature of it somehow still make it a lot of fun to play. Hole two needs to be removed, hole 3 can be lengthened and a new hole added on the back. This simple change would make the course more fun more safe and have much better flow for tourneys and crowded days.
