Pros: Great for beginners
A fun, quick 9 holes
In beautiful Findley State Park
Back nine being added and should be completed by the end of summer
Cons: Somewhat uninspired design
First two holes are just moderate length in an open field
From hole two - three is a short hike that could be marked out better
lots of poison ivy
Natural tees with minimal signage. Lot's of slipping potential when muddy
Hole nine is smack dab in a picnic area. BOO!
Other Thoughts: Despite having more negatives listed here than positives, I really do like this course. A heavily wooded course which is very forgiving to a beginning player. Moderate chance of lost discs. Not much in terms of elevation changes. The course is more technical than long, your main challenge will be trying not to hit the numerous trees as most of the holes are heavily wooded with tight fairways, while being extremely short. I was amazed how short each hole appeared after a year being away and playing the courses in the Cleveland area. The back nine is being installed and is expected to be complete by the end of summer 2011. While most of the holes make good use of the limited space that the course utilizes, I really think that the mix of use of hole nine leaves something to be desired. The play of the hole itself is fine; short, but with plenty of trees to make it a challenge, but a picnic area is right smack dab to the left. One grip lock and some poor picnicker is going to be getting hurt.

Pros: Short technical course, Play 10 holes in about 20 minutes, (add 5 minutes per player). Great at night for glow golf. Very dark and easy to navigate.
Cons: Only 9 holes.
Other Thoughts: Holes 1 and 2 now have Long Tees! Look for more additions to the existing 9 holes and then we'll be adding 9 more holes for a total of 18! Locals play from the corner next to 7's basket across the parking lot to 5's basket for a bonus hole. This connects you to hole 8 which players have to walk to anyhow. Local Friends of Findley State Park and local players put a lot of work into this disc golf project. Look for this course to get better and better each month.

 Quick Technical Game

Pros: Good for a real quick round, or play a few to work on your technical game; tightly wooded for the most part making the shorter holes retain some difficulty.
Cons: Teepads are mostly gravel and then some are just rubber mats in the grass. Hole 9 has a sign but not sure where you are "supposed" to tee of from

Hole 9 has a picnic spot right at the tee; which can make you have to skip the whole. Too bad to, because hole 9 is a fun hole to play.
Other Thoughts: Despite currently only being 9 holes and its other raw shortcomings; Findley brings some technical shot difficulty into play to still bring a challenge and at the same time; ace runs. With the news of the new holes and the way they were described to me, it sounds like it will be adding length and elevation changes making this a much higher rated course.

Beautiful scenery and other activities available at the park could make for a nice family outing for an entire day.

Pros: Mostly for beginners . Short and technical hole here . Lots of things going on this park
Cons: No signage or map
no tee pads
Can be a little confusing for 9 holes
Other Thoughts: After holes 1 & 2 you can put your driver away. Work on your approach game here. most of these holes are less than 200ft.

Pros: Family Friendly. Short holes for beginners, but enough trees to make it interesting for others. Two open holes to start out.
Cons: A couple holes are way too close to picnic areas.
Other Thoughts: Scenic area, especially hole 9. For casual play. Lots of other activities in the park.

Pros: Great course to work on your short, technical game. Plenty of trees to make this course a challenge. We like to find parks to camp and play disc golf and this course fits the bill. Very well maintained. I hope they plan to add some more holes, There is enough real estate to make it 18 holes.
Cons: Cement tees and more holes would make it even better!
Other Thoughts: Great place to camp and enjoy nature. Not busy, at least in Oct./Nov.

Pros: Great scenery in the park, wooded and quiet. It's just a short bike ride in the park from camping and swimming.
Course starts out with two nice open holes and then the rest of the course is mixed between wooded areas and small openings. At hole #1 there are free scorecards to take, which I thought was very helpful.
Cons: Not a lot of distance on this course. All holes are par 3's which make it less challenging. The Tee's are a little rough but it appears that the park is dong some construction to lengthen the course.
Other Thoughts: Overall a pleasant nine hole course and the only one around southern Lorain County. I would recommend it to anyone camping at Findley, it would be a fun time for the family to spend an hour on .
