While you're in the area, there are two other must play courses: Lincoln Ridge and Mt. Airy. Both of those are destination courses by themselves, and are absolutely worth playing if you're in Cincinnati. Disc n Dat and the pro shop at Mt. Airy both have pretty good disc selections.

^^^ what he said will basically be the unanimous suggestion.

I personally would prioritize playing them in this order:
1. Idlewild
2. Lincoln Ridge
3. Mt. Airy

Mt Airy...be sure to play when the disc golf shoppe "the Nati" is open http://thenatidiscgolf.com/ It is the best disc golf shoppe I have ever been to....huge selection I'd fly to Cinncinatti for this shoppe alone.....throw in a course onsite and its a pure perfect location!

Idlewild....go for the challenge and be prepared to learn just how good of a player you are

Lincoln Ridge.....go for the fun...simply a treat to play this course..one of the funnest I've played

Have Fun! All three are great plays with Idlewild being tighter and Mt Airy despite its name (forrrest?) being very open with Lincoln being a mix of the 2 but not as extreme.

We are making that trip in the fall of next year. Can't wait to play all three. What are the best places to eat at within proximity to those courses?

I thought Idlewild closed every winter?

Hope I'm wrong for your sake though.

What they all said ^^^^^

...but you better make sure this (see below) isn't happening, they do close it for the winter but they also had doubles there last week.

Contact Fred at the number listed for the Nati golf, he's the lead person for both the Nati and Idlewild.

As far as I know Idlewild is open. Its in a public park that's open year round. Hoping to make it up there to play it sometime soon.

If you're driving all the way down though, be sure to double check with Fred. Safe travels!

The park doesn't close, the course does. They remove the baskets when they close it down.
