Another great course in the Lehigh Valley area that will test both your accuracy and upshot skills. There's at least 7 baskets where the creek comes into play, including one across the pond throw where I've scored a birdie both times. #7 seems intimidating when I first came across that basket on Friday, so I skipped playing this hole altogether. It's a par 58 course. When playing on #10, it'll be smarter to lay up in the right spot so that you'll have a good chance of scoring a tough par. Th ...

Great course that doesn't require a lot of power & demands accuracy off the tee where most of the fairways are pretty tight.

First time playing this course on 12/28/09 with Jen. The ground was covered with frozen snow & about 15-20 degrees. Since then, I've played at this course a bit more often. I don't mind the natural tees, but it would be nice to have concrete teepads since it can get slippery when it's wet. Most of the baskets are strategically placed, so it's a big plus. Not as wide open as 2 other Frederick, MD area courses (Heritage Farm & Middletown Park.) Most of the time I'll play twice around this co ...

Love this 27 basket course with 2 set of tees & at least 2 basket positions on every hole. It will test your accuracy in the woods. Some of them have tight and narrow fairways. Others aren't as tight, but plays along the creek on one side which is OB. Also there's always a risk of getting your discs caught up in the cedar trees, so if it's above 2 meters, then that disc is considered OB. Always very well-maintained...to my liking since I get to throw my forehand rollers pretty often here.

Beautiful park with 3 courses! One Red course that has 18 baskets + 9 Cross Country baskets & the other would be a Blue course that has 18 baskets + 9 X baskets. Also there's a full mini-disc golf course with 18 baskets. Both courses have 2 set of tees. The lake comes into play on several baskets at the red course. Both courses have several mandos to make it even more challenging.

Sweet little course that's still a work in progress. Not too hard to navigate from baskets to the next tee, but it's easy to take the wrong turn if you're not paying attention. Gotta look for the signs that directs you to the next tee, but I'm sure they're working on to improve that. All fairways are pretty well-defined, but not exactly wide-open. Any errant throws off the tee that ends up in the woods on either side are usually par-killers. There's a beautiful sight of the WV mountains left of #11's tee & fairway. Also there's an apple orchard along the fairway.

Nice & very well maintained course. Rolling hills gives you some uphill & downhill throws. We've played a mix of mostly B pins and some A's with several temporary baskets to make this course a bit challenging. The variety's nice & nothing's redundant here. There's several short baskets, but they're not always a gimmie birdie in my opinion. In regards to the single-chain baskets that everyone's been complaining about...it's not a problem for me. I'd blame it on the players NOT adjusting to ...

Another decent course in the area of Frederick, MD. Mostly wide-open baskets just like Middletown Park's course. The wind's always a factor here as well. Advanced players can avoid getting bogeys on a good day. Basket 19's a tunnel shot & the blue tee's really a par 5 which plays back to basket #8 & 20's back to the practice basket.

Not a world-class course, but it's the place to work on your driving accuracy off the tees. Most of the baskets in the front 9 are wide-open, but it doesn't necessarily mean that it's an easy course by any means. The wind will always be a factor here, especially when you're throwing your upshots & putting.
