 College Course

Pros: Concrete tee pads and very good baskets.
Nice campus setting with plenty of parking.
Nice varying hole lengths.
Water comes into play on several holes.
Cons: Some tee pads are too short.
Difficult to find certain tees.
After heavy rain some tees under water, ground very wet and holds water.
Course flow not good, A lot of people traffic.
Very flat (no elevation change) and can be very windy!
Other Thoughts: This is a very nice and scenic college campus course. Can be very busy with traffic from other athletic fields and campus walk ways. The wind can be a challenge. A lot of walking between holes, a little difficult to find the tees the first time there. Overall a nice college course.

Pros: -Well maintained since it is on a college campus.
-Nice area
-Variety of difficulty (long open, long wooded, short open, short woods)
-Water hazards that are avoidable or you can take them to save strokes
- Multiple Tees
Cons: -A lot of straight out there shots, no a lot of annies, or unique hyzers (spike, skip, ect)
-Being on a college campus it can be crowded with some holes having you driving across multiple crosswalks at weird spots.
-Somewhat confusing tee signs (only a couple)
Other Thoughts: I can be super windy in this part of Ohio so you better know how to play it or expect extra strokes even from the short tees. The am and pro tees are noticeably different with the pros sometimes being odd to locate or throw from. The town is cute and the holes are nice but I didn't see sign of a strong DG community...

Pros: -well maintained
-very scenic college campus
-lots of nice long open holes for big bombs

-has little elevation changes (common to the area), but makes great use of what they have
Cons: -can be very hard to navigate first time threw
-heavy pedestrian foot traffic during school year
-mostly open so wind can be a big factor
-has some drainage issues with some holes collecting lots of standing water
Other Thoughts: this is a very fun course, but bring your A game...it can be tricky. will be playing this course for years to come

Pros: - Variety of shots required
- Never busy
- Very challenging Pro tees
- Physical Plant guys will make fun of you if your disc goes OB
Cons: - Windy, like up to 40 mph windy
- Ada becomes a swamp and adds a fourth lake in the spring. The lake is on top of hole 3.
- The combo of wind and lakes can lead to a lot of lost discs
- Non disc golfers can be seen on the paths. Keep a close eye out for them.
- Long walk from hole 11 to 12. Turn left after the 11th basket, then keep going straight towards the lake. The 12th tee is in a clump of trees to your left.
Other Thoughts: Only 10 minutes from I-75, a good place to stop on a trip through the state

Pros: Easy to find at ONU. Holes flow pretty easy and did not get lost. Nice variety of short and long holes. Most on the long side for what I am used to playing but not terrible. Has several ponds that come into play which makes for some exciting shots.
Cons: Very windy in Ada most of the time since it is so flat which makes playing difficult. Can lose discs in ponds if you are not accurate
Other Thoughts: Would reccommend this course to others. Nice view of the campus especially the large football stadium.

Pros: A variety of distances, including a pro tee that is 700+. A variety of obstacles. Many Doglegs. Get to see most of the campus. Variety of fairways, including tunnels.
Cons: Land is flat for 30 miles in every direction, so when the wind blows - it really blows. Distance between holes and subsequent tees is usually quite far. so expect a lot of walking from hole to tee.
Other Thoughts: Go Polar Bears!
