Pros: -Good, solid tee pads
-Nice baskets
-Disc Golf Mart is just down the road
Cons: -Signage, if not stolen/missing, is horrible on each hole
-No course map
-No "next tee" signs
-No hole #s on the baskets, difficult to tell which hole is which
Other Thoughts: I was not a fan of Griggs Reservior. I live about an hour away and it was the first course I have played at in Columbus so there isn't much to compare it to with the surrounding area (having a disc golf store down the road is a nice plus, highly recommend going there). The course has many similar holes. and nothing that is a real challenge except distance. If you are looking to play a round in Columbus, I wouldn't recommend this course because I am sure there is something better near by (Hoover).

Pros: There were port a johns or bathrooms.
Cons: Missing numbers on baskets or not visible from far away.

There are three baskets that are easily confused for others.

Can get crowded at times.
Other Thoughts: As long as you dont try any thing stupid on holes that are near the main road or river, then you dont have to worry about the main road or the river.

Pros: Very good tee pads!
Like the rough lines on the ends of the tee pads.
Good use of surrounding trees.
Cons: Difficult to determine course flow that first time.
No course maps or individual hole maps.
Parking lot is a mess! (Pot holes, etc,)
Grass needed mowed!
Very level course needs some elevation changes!
Other Thoughts: Could be a good course just needs some maintenance and clean up. Construction in the area also messes things up. Out and back design is pretty boring!

Pros: -Adequate teepads and baskets.

-OB road makes your round more exciting if you choose to use it.

-Although the tee signs were primitive, they were all there.

-A block away from Disc Golf Mart, where you can grab scorecards.

-Challenging holes, but not frustrating. There were newbies and experienced players in my group today and no one thought the course was too easy/hard.

-Great use of the woods for protected baskets.
Cons:
-I've experienced a "fishy" smell when playing near the creek.

-It is very difficult to find the course the first time, as you don't see much of the course from the road.

-The course gets muddy and eventually floods while it's raining (See http://www.dgcoursereview.com....php?t=30456)

-Parking lot has lots of pot holes
Other Thoughts:
If this course was fixed up a little, It could easily be rated a 4. It is a refreshing change from the rest of the Columbus scene, although I would not put it on the same level as the Brent Hambrick course.

Pros: Back 9 are somewhat challenging
Good concrete pads
Signs provide distance and par
Provides good shade on really hot days
Cons: No real elevation changes
Waiting, waiting... and more waiting.
Some shots are on the edge of rough so some disc hunting may occur.
RECENT: Hole 18 has a massive uprooted tree laying across the entire fairway, it makes for a real difficult shot but also a cool obstacle for those optimistic people.
Other Thoughts: Not a course to play everyday, the foot traffic gets pretty bad on most days. There is a disc store about a mile down the road which makes it a good course for you to play after you get a new disc.

Pros: The course has been updated to make it a little tougher and conceal some of the pin placements further into the trees. It's a nice park with big mature trees and it's right off of a main road in the city. It's real easy to get to.
Cons: It's always busy. There isn't enough shot diversity, nearly every hole forces a certain shot. The first (roughly nine holes) go in one direction and the next (roughly 9) come back the other way so the shots all go left to right and then vice versa. The course is heavily travelled and it shows. There seems to always be a problem with people breaking limbs to improve a shot or manipulating the course. A lot of the holes are straightforward and forgettable.
Other Thoughts: This is a course we tried to play every once in a while because it's so close but other course play faster and better in the area. It's just alright.

Pros: A wide variety of shots
the tee pads are nice
The course layout is very cool
Some good distance shots
It has a very cool location with the river on one side
Cons: When it rains a lot it definetly floods up.
Police roll through the course a lot.
It could use a course map.
Other Thoughts: it wasnt really busy when i went but with a course that is as cool as this one im guessing it will get pretty busy come summertime.

Pros: Good mix of right to left, left to right, straight shots
Pretty decent tee pads and baskets
Multiple Tee positions
Maintained very well
Cons: No real long bombers except 18 which is pretty tight with the river off the right side
Can get crowded in the summer months
Other Thoughts: I play Griggs quite a bit and I enjoy the mix of shots it has. Utilizes the woods in a few spots but not overly woodsy. Twice a week there are random doubles that make it a fun challenge. Better course than OSU to work on your game because there are more than just hyzer shots. Only bad thing would be the crowd that can get there but it's never been that big of an issue for me.

Pros: A good use of 18 holes right next to disc mart. Right next to OSU if you need a easier round. Griggs still remains to be a popular course.
Cons: If it rains just once in the week you play it can be very muddy. This can be so popular that this course can be crowded. Bad water problems!
