Pros: Good use of trees and available land

the creek on the first few holes adds risk to your shorts while still being shallow and easy to get disc back out of the water .

Some long and some short it has a little of everything

nice tee's and signs ,the even have arrow signs pointing towards the basket on a few holes if there blind shots .
Cons: playing would be trouble on a busy day as more the a few holes have shelters and other actives right in the fairways .

hole 3 was just stupid,the holes doglegs left after 150 feet and there a creek 10 feet behind the start of the dogleg ,just no good way to shot it as there's no over the top are a way though the thick woods .


Tees and fairways overlapping each other on several holes with tees dangerously to others fairways and add the risk of being hit be a disc

hole 11-14 (i think ) was way to short and boring every shot was a putter backhand shoot that was between 150-220 it's nice to have some ace runs but these holes just don't seem to fit with the rest of the layout
Other Thoughts: I like the course it was fun

Other Thoughts: This is a nice little course in a park setting. I had fun here but it is definitely a pitch and putt extravaganza with some fun shots mixed in there. Most of the holes are very short. I wouldn't go out of my way to play this course but if I lived in Ottawa, OH then I wouldn't be too disappointed to play here in a regular basis. On the surface it appears dangerous as many of the shots play in and around picnic areas, pavilions, tennis courts and playgrounds. However these shots are generally really short so erratic throws at innocent bystanders should be kept to a minimum. There are a few longer holes where you have to thread through some trees and deal with a little bit of OB. The walks between holes aren't too bad and the course seems to flow good other than the walk from 8 to 9 which was long and confusing. Not a great course by any means but the design is well thought out and it seems to be a course that fits the park very well. Most of the drives are "fun to throw" and the putting areas are "kinda cool" which are two big factors for me.

Pros: Course now has cement tees, and on the longer holes the tee pads are longer.

Very descriptive tee signs. Also liked the message on the bottom of every tee sign" don't throw unless the coast is clear" or something of the same facsmile.

Course right next to swimming pool (so it has good visability within thew community, and if you want to go for a swim after playing you could do that as well).

Though I'm left handed, I' liked # 5 as it's definatley a turnover shot for me, plus the begining of the fairway is much narrower than the end of middle fairway. Lot of birdie opportunities.
Cons: (major) LONG walk between # 8 's basket and # 9 's tee. when creek is up, course tends to play a bit harder (like it did the day I played it) as most baskets that water comes into play are near the creek.
Other Thoughts: Didn't know if there's a mando for # 3. Tee sign doesn't say anything of the like, so I played through the woods. Watch your speed as park is in a close knit neighborhood
