The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

Well I began in PA at Prompton Dam DGC in Prompton. It is very scenic, on a slope leading down toward the lake at the edge of a dam. Mowed grassy fairways, no 'woods' holes just some pins tucked into the woods. It is very long, and there are 2 sets of pins per hole both in the ground. The yellow pins are more realistic, the original layout I suppose it is (tee signs all gone temporaily for the re-do). The red baskets make it a ton of 350-500' holes. I am a big-arm sorta, but to me the red baskets made for less of a course than the shorter yellow ones. They took away all shots for 2's but didn't make any true par 4's, meaning your scorecard will look like this: 3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3-3 if you can throw far.
Not much technicality to the shots either, very rhbh friendly course. Fun and challenging though. I hope they are keeping both pin positions because longer is not always better. The yellow makes for a great course.
Drove 150 miles into NY for the next round at Corning. This course is very nice. It is basically a typical city park around some other park facilities, with a small pond in play several times. Tee signs on front 9 only, and GREAT smooth cement tees like back at home. It's actually longer than your typical city park, the 2nd hole is 480'ish and the next few are 350'ish. VERY RHBH oriented, sorry lefty's you got nothing here. Mowed grass, well maintained and clean to play. The holes are pretty well designed, have to be good to get the dueces.

nope I hit 3-4 trees the whole course, definitely didn't play any woods holes

yeah all the baskets and collars are staying. the woods holes are perminent, but with no signs i am sure it was easy for you to miss them, unless maybe you played them and our opinion of a woods hole is different.

no didn't find those, are they bonus holes
\i know i was there during a re-design, so there were no signs
not all 2's. just makes it more of a bomber course, making it more about distance than accuracy, would be great for me in a tournament and still a nice course i enjoyed it, so i hope both pins stay or can be alternated, are they leaving the collars in the ground?

So you are claiming the red pins take away all options for 2's, well i am not quite the big arm you claim to be, but i have had 2's on serveal occasions on the red pins. (Holes 1, 3, 9, 14, 18). and i am sure with an actual big arm, 2 and 4 would be possible because i have been close. and yes unlike you not all people that play prompton can throw far, so there are some par 4's for those people, such as 8, 10, 13, 15 red pins. And apparently you didn't find the two brand new woods holes, that have flymats layed down. One plays back into the woods and the other one plays out of the woods.

Are you sure you were at Prampton Dam, and not at Prompton dam?
