Unique in that it's a beach course. Also because its a beach course the winds are steady 10-20mph and your disc will not skip, roll, etc. Nice tees, lots of blind holes, good signage. Expect sand in your shoes.

LOVE this course! A lot of people hate on it, but I absolutely love it! Very challenging, yet fair, easy at times, but it's like a disc golf paradise! All this course really needs is a basket upgrade, if it was possible to put in some DGA Mach III's, or V's, this would by far be my favorite course I've played!

There's a lot of baskets that you can't see from the tee box. The whole course is sand, different because the discs don't skip.

lots of work is being done-new blue tee boxes, new direction signs.
met Mark who is doing all the work and thanked him.
this course is great. lots of varied shots are required. love it or hate it, there is not a course quite like Henlopen.

This is a must play course. There are Red(short) White(original) and Blue(long) tees on most holes. There are now 19 holes with more going in. New tee pads, new chains and other improvements currently going on. Come play and have fun!

Nice course, pro and am t's. Great signage and nice variety of approaches and drives. Heard about the wind but not today. No underbrush or bugs, elevated t boxes prevented some run ups but no holes required it, beautiful day and course.

The course is maintained well, and I appreciate the multiple tee locations for each hole. Also, the course is well marked as far as the direction of the next tee pad. The space is utilized well without a doubt. Make sure to play with someone who knows the course, or alternate spotting the hole for the several holes with blind shots over dunes. Bring a beverage on a hot day as well....

This course was AWESOME!! I dropped in during a vacation at OC... and it was a nice and easy short drive with a Dogfish brewpub pitstop. The course was unbelievable, but i can see how some people could hate this place. Not me, it is what it is..... I loved tromping through the dunes and pines, the blind shots, teeing from the boardwalk tees and the ocean air. Afterwards we went to the beach and cooled off... good times.

Great time! Great course, the holes and tees are awesome. Great walking on the sand and through the pines!

Really fun course. This is a very unique course for this area since basically all of it is in the sand. Don't expect to have your best throws here since the sand makes it difficult, but its a good challenge. The area is very scenic, with large sand dunes and a location right next to the Atlantic ocean. Most holes are somewhat short in distance (except 18) but the sand makes them seem longer. Only drawbacks are that the equipment is in pretty bad shape, with bad signs, tee pads and baskets, ...

Good course but not the -A course I expected which means almost perfect which this one is not . All the baskets are in rough shape and some of the boardwalk tees are broken are completely torn apart . The navigation was rough in spots and the some of the tees were unreadable The course gets really hot so playing before noon is a must Most holes the basket is blind and quite a few holes do not have a real line to hit it's throw and pray i Played the long tees the tees from the red looked ...

Cool beach course. Holes are hidden behind duned and in pine forests. Some of the tees and baskets could use some maintenance, but it is a beach course so it kind of fits. You can't see about half the holes from the tees, so if it's your first time, it can be challenging. This was the first course I ever played on years ago. Really cool. You can hear the ocean from the course.

Under water. Poor signs and bad tee pads, but fun holes

As others have said, it's a little tough getting around. I had a hard time finding 11 and 14. Hole 4 has a lot of water around it. Besides that, apply the correct combination of bug spray and suntan lotion and you'll have a good time!
