Today began at Creekside "Crawdad" in Camp Hill PA around 9:30 am. It is pretty decent, mostly short but demanding shots leaving you afraid of the river on most holes. Lots of poison ivy, but very easy to avoid it except for 3 holes on monster alley, where it is freshly carved out woods and very nasty. The other part of the course is a park setting with mowed grass and no rough stuff. Easy to follow, great signage and flow. Hanging arrows point you on your way. I ran into a tag league and joined them for the back 9 holes.
Then on to Pinchot State Park in Lewisberry PA. It has two 18 holes courses, separated by a lake and it is hard to find one from the other, the directions don't tell you how.
The first one is Boulder Woods- In my opinion it is either poorly designed or too overgrown to throw properly, it was hard to tell as I was paying more attention to the mud up to my boot tops on most FAIRWAYS. Lucky I had gore tex boots and socks. Not really much fun this time of year, maybe in the winter.
The next is Quaker's Challenge, apparently the challenge is to actually enjoy playing it! There was so much mud, you'd be better off playing in waders. Poison ivy is unavoidable on most holes here. Literally have to walk through it to get to the first tee. Stumps and rocks on the steep hills are dangerous. The forest floor is overgrown with leafy saplings, making it hard to see the holes/find your discs. I lost one that almost aced because I could not find it in the overgrown forest, musta been within 50 ft of the basket though, searched for 20 minutes. Some holes are just stupid, but about 12 of them are really great (eventually) and will make a true championship par 4/5 type course when it is actually more playable.
I am calling it a day at 4:00 to get some other stuff done.
