Pros: very easy to get to the course
would assume its never busy
grass was well mowed
great beginner course
Cons: poorly marked holes
only 9 baskets but says there are 18 holes. the baskets are marked 1-9.
on back 9 you have no idea where to shoot
very close holes
one basket was damaged.
no course map

Nothing but an ace race
Pros: Nothing but Aces.
No challenging shots.
First nine are well marked.
Catchers are great.
Cons: Not Challenging.
Gets very boring.
Second set of tee's to make 18 holes is very confusing.
Other Thoughts: Unless your a beginner or want to waste your time trying an ace race, don't even bother, the drive out to Ottawa metro park is worth it.

ace race ahoy
Pros: if youve never used a putter as a driver get ready. this course is short with most holes being right around 150ft. it isnt much but can be fun, i suggest getting a few friends together and have yourself an ace race
Cons: very short and not really any obsticals aside from a few 5ft high bushes which arnt really obsticals

I didn't care for this course
Pros: Plenty of ace opportunities
Cons: Repetitive / Zero variety
Other Thoughts: I would say this is the worst I have ever played. If your a 4 year old girl and you live right next door to the course and have never played disc golf before then this is the place for you. Otherwise don't waist you time

Pros: 1.Very good for accurate throws. 2. Great course for beginners. 3.The obstacles make you either throw back or forehand.
Cons: 1.Not a very good course for pros unless you want to try and ace these short holes. 2.Very easy.
Other Thoughts: Its a good course for beginners but okay for ameuters, but bad for pros.

--Every hole has tee signs with numbers and distance, there is no way to get lost here. Also there are 9 new DISCatcher baskets all in place (10 including the practice basket).
--This is a great course for a beginner to learn the game at! Big ace chance on every hole.
--This course is very easy. The only hole that really has any challenge is #4, besides that every hole is wide open and under 300 feet with zero elevation change.
--No tee pads, just packed ground.
--The course is located at the Fort Shawnee Municipal Building and you park in the same lot as the local police station ;). The baskets are placed in an almost wide open field and run along a fence line with houses on one side, and backs up to a farm.
--It's listed as 9 holes because it has 9 baskets, but there are 18 tee signs so you can play the course as 18 if you want. (This can either be a pro or con I guess.)
--We stopped here on the way back from our Cinci trip, mainly because it had no pics and hadn't been reviewed yet. This is a beginner course all the way, I would not recommend anyone from out of the area to stop at this course if they even have moderate experiance.
