Pros: Easy for new players
mixed progression
clean woods, and fairways
18 holes all easy to find
family friendly, a course for everyone
Cons: too easy, in the long run....
Other Thoughts: I felt this course is nice, but I prefer more of the extreme disc golf experience

Pros: decent 18 hole course past Eagle Ridge before mason...always well mowed, half in fields, half in woods.
Cons: the wooded holes can be a doozy, some may not like the mulch in the woods.
Other Thoughts: 18 is a long hole, but i love coming here, the wooded ones are real creative.

Pros: Turtlecreek DGC is a great place to get in a round with variety (woods and open fields) AND to watch (and hear) large remote control airplanes and frequent skydivers (well…hopefully you don't hear them…that might indicate a disaster in the making). It's kind of a game of flying discs and an airshow rolled into one.
The course is well-maintained despite limited trash receptacles, and features eight open field shots that can be influenced by the frequent breezes and the few planted trees and hillocks. It has ten wooded holes that are not overly tight, but the well-defined lines can sometimes be challenging for the rec to intermediate player. A creek comes into play on a couple of holes (or more, if you do what I did last time out, and kick off a tree deep into the woods!)
Signature holes are probably the long S-bend #11 and the open 600 foot #18 (the only two holes I've yet to par, after five rounds here).
Baskets are decent, and the open tees are asphalt, while the wooded tees are flypads. The flow and design are fairly straightforward with minimal hiking between one basket and the next tee. There are usually good tee signs, and next tee signs, when needed.
The park has bathrooms, water fountains, a small kiddie play area, a walking path, and a couple of shelters, but I've not seen much other activity here besides the 'air show' and the disc golf, so it's good for the latter.
Cons: There are only a few benches on the course, which is mostly flat (though most players enjoy a variety of elevation, a relatively flat course could be a plus for older knees!).
Though there is a practice basket, the very few alternate teepads and baskets don't seem to be used much.
Well north of Lebanon, Ohio, this course is situated pretty far out from major population centers (however, it's still within a 45 minute drive for Cincinnati and Dayton players).
Other Thoughts: Just attended the Turtlecreek Open yesterday, and on a calm day, the 980 to 1020 rated players shot in the mid to upper 40's for 18 holes here, and those (ahem) who are more (shall we say) 'humble' (like me) were satisfied with 60 or better. So the course accomplishes what decent courses do: separate the wheat from the chaff. Wait..I'm chaff?!

Pros: Very flat
Very Clean
Decent range of throw options
Cons: Very Flat
The course seem to be really tight with not much room between fairways
Other Thoughts: Decent course over all, but it does get a little boring after a few times of playing. Very clean and well maintained though. If its slightly windy where you are around the Lebanon, then its probably really windy on the front 9. It is a wide open field and the wind has nothing to break it for the entire front 9. It does get hard to judge the distance shots some times.

Pros: This course is good for practicing some obstacle shots. You can play this course with a small group in about 45 minutes.
Cons: This course was very muddy after the rain, so the back 9 was difficult to venture through.
Other Thoughts: This course had a nice mix of open long drive holes and short obstacles holes.

Pros: Tight technical wooded holes with swing, great for tournament, excellent variety.
Cons: Flat, little elevation, hole 3 & 4 play too close to one another
Other Thoughts: Typically windy on the open holes, bring some stable plastic with you.

 Nice Course

Pros: The course has a good mix of open and wooded holes. Allows you to really rip it and then play controlled shots on other holes. The course is easy to navigate.
Cons: None really worth saying. They are just picky things that don't much matter.
Other Thoughts: As a course designer I would suggest that designers pay attention to the PDGA par guidelines when setting par. You cannot set par based on the distance alone. #6 is 420 and according to the PDGA it should be a Par 4 from the RED Tee. The 600' #18 is the only legitimate Par 5 from the RED. That is based on distance. Foliage plays a big part of the par and most of the holes listed 4 or 5 should really be Par 3 or 4 based on PDGA rules.

 A Well Maintained Course

Pros: A very well maintained facility with good signage and nice tee pads. A neat feature in the design of this course is that you can play 9 holes in the open or 9 in the woods.
Cons: Overall the course feels very "vanilla" many of the wooded holes feel the same and holes in the open field have little variation.
Lots of people play here, so on nice days you feel like you are kinda fighting the crowd and in peoples way.

The terrain here is very flat, on only a few of the holes are there any elevation changes and none of them are very significant. This makes the wind a huge factor.

  A Beginner's Thoughts

Pros: Excellent course for men and women players. Most newer players aren't throwing 350' consistently and this course gives you a chance on several wide open holes to just get in some decent practice on your distance drives. The 2nd half is nicely wooded with some tighter lanes and let's you work on the more technical side of the game with several possibility at aces if you are good enough.
Cons: The wind can be absolutely brutal on this course in the open portion and even when you keep them low and hard they can tend to wander off in any number of different directions. The wind seems to change every 60 seconds out here and it can definitely make for some interesting throws.
Other Thoughts: I am really just a beginner having only been playing for about 3 months and I use this course to track my progression. Playing at the marked pars I usually finish around par to 2 over with a best game of 5 under.

Pros: very good practice course, f front 9 is very open and back 9 is tightly wooded. the course allows you to throw a variety of shots.very nice signs and really easy to navigate.
Cons: Not the Most difficult course. Front nine could use some more trees but they have been planting so could shape out to be a little more challenging in a couple of years
Other Thoughts: the course is not overly challenging but good if you want to practice a bit. Great for a casual game, and not too crowded.
