Pros: great place to grow your skills in a challenging environment. Some folks say its short, but try throwing with either hand straight for 175 feet on the regular. any sooner and you'll be in the woods.
Cons: not enough folks actually use the trash cans, but the same can be said for all courses
Other Thoughts: course would be great if it was actually open. They're taking a while to cut down all the ash trees...sounds like it wont be open until Spring 2015 now. This is news to me and differs from the last 2 times I asked them, and they told me it would be open later in the winter 2013 and sooner in the spring 2014. Starting to lose faith in the staff that run the place, nevermind the $1000 fine if found on disc golf course now. Talk about off-putting and irritating! Gladly spent the $30 year pass at nearby Ferretie/Baugo.

Pros: Unforgiving, will challenge all skill levels.
Course is well kept and worth the price of admission.
Nice mix of elevation changes, open and tight fairways, water hazards and deep brush hazards.
Signage and baskets in good condition and course is well-marked.
Cons: Older tee pads are concrete but on the small side.
Mosquitos are terrible in spring and midsummer. Poison ivy all over - typical of heavily-wooded courses so not really a con, just a reminder!
Some holes come close to flooding out during wetter springs.
Other Thoughts: Ox Bow is the course I learned to play on so it has a special place in my memory. It is a technical course so leave your distance drivers behind and get ready to thread the needles.
The course does not favor a particular throwing style or handedness - whether you are right-handed or left-handed, throw BH or FH or OH you will need to do a little of everything to make your way through it under par.
This course has aged well - very few holes have significantly different lines from when it was first installed (the exceptions being #3 and #15/old #13, and updated #9 and #16/old #14). It is a very well-designed course that is standing the test of time.
Happy throwing! When you are looking for a disc, may you find two!
