Pros: *Great course for Kids, New players or if you want to work on your putting and upshot game.

*Easy navigation.

*Some technical shots

*basket within sight of tee box
Cons: *Natural tee boxes can get a little bit sloppy.

*It's not a challenging course for anyone who's played more than a couple months.

*tee boxes are close to previous holes basket. If you go past the basket you can end up in another fairway.

Other Thoughts: This is an ideal place to bring a new player/kids to learn how to play disc golf. Low chance of losing a disc, everything is reachable for me (low AM1 level) from a stand still putter shot.

Took my daughter her and we had a blast. Ideal place to take newbies or kids to play.
For anyone with experence, this is a good course for working on your upshots. shortest hole I think is 130' and longest is 204' down hill.

The park is beuatiful. I played early on a Sunday morning and was able to play four rounds in about an hour throwing 3 disc's on each hole.

Looking forward to taking my 9 year old with me next time to play some rounds.

Pros: Can play entire course in under 15 minutes.

No chance to lose a disc.

The perfect course to introduce kids to the game.
Cons: Fairways do cross a bit.

One tee has the sign in your back swing.

Other Thoughts: This is the shortest course I have ever player. The entire course would be the size of a typical par 4 on pro level courses.

I got to try many mid range upshot off the tee.

 Fun easy course that has flexibility!

Pros: - Easy to navigate and play.
- Course takes roughly 15 minutes to play by yourself.
- Due to the proximity of tee areas to baskets, you can mix around and shoot from different tees to different baskets to add longer, more challenging shots.
- Nice 2 disc course. A putter and a mid-range are all that you need!
- All holes are ace runs!
- Good course to build player confidence and to introduce people to the sport without overwhelming them.
Cons: - Course pars are a little off. A par 4 for a 140ft shot is crazy, but at least you can walk away under par from the course.
Other Thoughts: This course is tucked away in a park in PA. It was a little tough to get to the park due to detour signs, but if you follow your GPS despite the detour signs, you will find the park easily.

This is a fun course where your chances of losing a disc are impossible. Every hole is wide opened with some loosely scattered trees to help you learn and shape lines. I had a pleasant experience playing this course.

 Great beginner course!

Pros: This course is flat and very beginner friendly! The tee boxes are marked and most are very straight (not dog-legged). Basketball courts, tennis courts, picnic areas, playground, and a fishing stream is nearby for increased family fun. My family and I have had some great times out here! You could probably navigate this course with a putter and a mid-range disc. However, a few holes are guarded heavily with trees so bring some accuracy when you come! Easy to score well! Have fun!
Cons: The tee boxes are muddy, so stand off to one side or the other or you may fall on your backside and give everyone else a laugh. No dog-legs and not much of a challenge for all of you who have monsterous arms!
Other Thoughts: The course is in good shape considering it is only February 2012. Hope to see you out there!

Pros: Nice easy course for the beginner, builds your confidence, quick course, nice and open and all holes are straight
Cons: No hole is extremely challenging, sometimes it is confusing which basket you should shoot at
Other Thoughts: Great little park, close to where my brother lives, can get in and out under 30 minutes
