I woke up at nearly 8:00, was planning to tee-off at 7:00 so I did not get in 6 rounds, not to mention insane traffic (45 minutes wasted) due to a NASCAR event or whatever. I didn't know they did that up north.
Pennsville, NJ- Riverview:A very nice recreational level 9 hole course along a lake, but never getting too close to risk losing a disc without a pretty bad shot. Grassy, open but with enough trees to craft shots on half the holes. Has some decent length, most holes well over 250'. Could be hard to navigate as tees are marked with bricks, but look around and use common sense it's not hard.
Kirkwood, DE- Lums Pond:In a large state park, has cement tees, tee-signs (though most inaccurate due to new basket placements, walk every hole first because there's no way to tell where the pin is). Mix of all shots. Nothing very long and open, but several long woods holes. Can be rough on the edges on the back 9, easy to lose a disc here. Other than a few odd holes, like a "U" shape and the roughness on the back, it is a great course overall.
Felton, DE- Killens Pond:Has nice informative signs showing pin placement, 3 sets of decent rock/dirt tees. Consists mostly of very blind very sharp turns down tight fairways, with insane rough on the edges sometimes. The ivy is unavoidable, surrounding some baskets. Good design except for 2-3 crazy holes, tournament level course. One hole almost forces and overhand shot over some tall trees and bushes in the middle of the 'fairway' with no room to go around, landing in a tight fairway out of sight from the tee then an upshot from there. Have to see the pic to believe it. The next hole is similar, the view straight off the tee is a tree 5' in front of you, leaves and all, have to throw outward and around it, it blocks the shot completely, per design, weird. If you don't mind rough conditions, play this course for sure!
Lewes, DE- Camp Henlopen:
One of the most unusual courses I've ever seen, it's all on sand dunes and scrubby pine trees. Nearly every hole is blind, to the point you can't see the pin until you are putting. It is 30 years old, with original mach's and some cool new wooden tee pads. Easy to follow and play. I highly recommend it because it's like a walk on the beach, chance to lose a disc is slim even with all the blind shots. It is a lot of fun. Also in the first city of the first state.
Dover, DE- Dover:One of the best, in terms of design and maintenance, 9 hole courses around. It tests all skills, and has some extremely short holes. Mix of open-grassy and tight pine tree alleys. Has signs and is easy to follow. Worth playing as a warm-up between ends of the state. Hole #1 starts behind the office and pavilion to right after entrance.
