Kinslow DGC or Sunbury DGC is a small course located off of Route 3 and State Route 61 in Sunbury, Ohio. From I-71 head east to Route 3 and head North/Left. Make a left at the first intersection onto State Route 61. The entrance to the course can be easily missed, look for the large gravel entrance just past the church about .2 miles from the intersection. Follow the gravel road until it dead ends and the first tee is at the edge of the woods on the South side of the parking lot.
This course has the potential to be a pretty decent course. The holes are well laid out, with the front nine, even though short, being very technical and the back nine are mostly open and much longer.
While the course has a good layout and variety it needs a lot of improvements. The teepads use to be grass, but with play they have become dirt patches. For this I would say stay away from this course if it has rained within the last week, the teepads will be muddy and slick. Hole 7 can be particularly bad, its called the swamp if thats any indication. A couple of the benches are also broken and could use some repair and at least one of the tee signs are missing.
There are a couple other spots on the course that can get pretty swampy as well. The basket for 12 is located in a very low lying area. When we played today, my putter which is a champ rhyno, was stuck in the ground/tombstoned, the way a driver on an extreme angle would stick. When I went to retrieve it my entire shoe sunk into the mud. We decided to skip our putts and move on to the next hole.
Another thing to watch for when you are playing the front nine in the woods are stumps in the paths. They did not remove the small stumps completely and you can step on them or trip over them.
Overall I enjoy this course, I just wish they would put in the much needed improvements to take this course from a fair course to a good course. With concrete or rubber tee pads and a few maintanance issues addressed this course could be easily a 3 maybe 3.5 disc course.
