-Clean, cheery Park with amenities
-Good length concrete tees
-Hole 5 if you can make the throw
-Holes 1-4 will be problematic for beginners with poor or sporadic aim
-Holes 3-5 have good disc loss potential
-Fundamental problem is that holes have beginner feeling here but I'm not sure I'd introduce a beginner to the sport here because of above.
Other Thoughts:
Missed the park due to it's small sign. It's the same driveway as Musser's Excavation. From Route 322, the first tee will be on the right hand side driving in before the road branches off into the various parking areas, at 40.223955, -76.298215.

The course is that typical tacked-on outer-perimeter layout, around-the-clock (counter-clockwise) closely following the park trail. This makes the holes pretty limited in variety. Lengths are typically 200-250, with a few lower 300s.

Hole 1 has a column of 7 trees deep blocking the basket. On the right will be someone's backyard and house. Leftside has a decent amount of space to throw at but a parking lot alongside it.

Tee 2 will be at the very corner of the park, throwing at same parking lot, a basket downhill. Extremely wild shots to the right can be lost over the row of small/medium evergreens with wire fence fence, but I can see that happening as I used to chuck enough of those. It will be a bigger factor the next two holes.

Holes 3 and 4 are similiar, straight, third slightly downhill and fourth slightly uphill. Tees and Baskets very close to tree/fence edge, room for error is pretty small, disc loss is very possible. A single locked gate has No Trespassing sign. This park neighbor undoubtedly has received at least several free discs to start playing. I practiced my underused forehand here.

Hole 5 is around 320' iirc, much of it taken up by a 175' long water detention pond, with a basket slightly uphill. Judging by the numerous bent stalks on the pond plants, plenty of people had to wade in searching for their lost discs. Beginners should throw safety, left or right. Doubly so if it's wet.

6, 7, 8 are near the back of the park, much more forgiving and pretty straightforward as well.

Hole 9 is far from basket 8 with the tee being by the second entrance to the park at 40.222909, -76.296274. 230' iirc. Basket blocked by a row of trees on the right.

All in all, a decent spot for nearby locals that know a little what they're doing. Complete newbies should be cautious.

Pros: Very nice park layout. Walking track around most of course. Pretty wide open for beginners and good for testing accuracy and distance on discs. Also very good for younger players with no holes over 350' and most in range from 210 - 250'. Park and course was very clean and well mowed / maintained.
Cons: I'm not a good disc golfer by any means, playing less than 6 months now, but there wasn't a lot of challenge. A few holes are tucked nicely in young trees but there aren't any shots you have to start out in a tunnel or worry about low ceilings etc. Sometimes track and people walking come into play on shots, but can't complain with that too much.
Other Thoughts: Definitely come back and play again. Only 9 holes, but I'd play it a few times in a row if I have the time. Anyone who's been playing a while and more experienced may not enjoy this one too much.

Pros: Nice park environment, playground & athletic fields surrounded by the disc golf course. Easy to navigate once you find the 1st tee pad. New baskets and concrete tee pads. Well maintained park with the exception of around a couple of the tee pads where they have not gotten the hang of mowing around them yet. A quick round, we went around twice, 18 holes in less than an hour.
Cons: Long walk from 8 to 9 and then back up to 1. Not terrible, but, would think a little more planning may have alleviated some of that. Then again I am not a course designer. Has 3 holes back to back at almost exact length of 230 to 210 feet. A little variation there would have been nice.
Other Thoughts: Not bad for a quick round or to take a beginner because it's fairly open and not too much trouble. Not sure if I will go back or not...
