Pros: Good length, and croncrete tee pads.

Update: I really enjoy the mixed of anny and hyzer holes on the course. Also, more porta potties than the last time I was here, and the locals (mostly the players with bags, not the single disc-ers, go figure) have been very nice and are willing to help if you get lost.
Cons: Poor repair. Bad signage. Overcrowded on any weekday. Made more difficult with strange basket placement which adds to navigation problems.

Updated: many of the baskets appear to be in their "easy" positions, possibly. The problem is, the signs that are present show distances and par numbers that simply don't make any since. Hole 3, for example, says 327 par 4, which makes sense when the pin is in the original position and is a hard anny. Now, it is a soft anny at about 250ft. And should be a par 3.
Other Thoughts: Seems like the course makes more sense as a juggalo convention camping ground than a disc golf course.

Updated: signs that show both pin positions and their correct lengths and pars, as well as numbers on the baskets could really push this course up to a high three/low 4.

 Good Course

Pros: -Concrete tee pads
-Distance for each hole
-Lots of trees
-Good variation of throws
Cons: -Trees are slowly being cut down because of the emerald ash borer.
-You can easily lose discs in the bushes
-No maps on holes
Other Thoughts: I probably play this course the most because it is the closest to my house. Good variation of throws. You can throw a 2 on most all holes or ace. Holes 4 and 5 are much harder now that they are more tucked back in the woods making it almost impossible to ace. Trees are being cut down because of the ash borer but they are planting new ones. Course may be bad for awhile once all the trees are cut down because there is a lot of them. The bushes make it easy to lose discs because they have a canopy which they land on and you can't see your disc. There are a few holes in which water is in play. When the water is down you can find discs. Don't come on Wednesday nights unless you wanna play in a tournament with the columbus flyers, they take up the whole course.

 Open and Short

Pros: Nice concrete tee pads and decent signage although some distances are inaccurate. 2 was 50 feet longer than it said on the sign. Holes 3 and 18 stand out to me as being pretty cool. 3 is a long right turning shot slightly uphill and 18 is a bomb of a par three with water right.
Cons: This course is very short and open. There is not much line forcing except for a few stray trees. The greens present challenge at times because rough is so close to the basket which is not my favorite way to add difficulty. 17 is a completely blind hole
Other Thoughts: The land does not lend itself to a great course but I think it could be redesigned and become a better course. It feels like an older style lid course.

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.
-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

-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.
