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: Nice tee pads. When in the open, the pads are concrete. When in the woods, the pads are rubber.

Decent signage, showing distance and line to the pin.

Navigation is a snap. The course flows smoothly and quickly.

Most likey, you will find something you like here (and probably something you don't)
Cons: This is a course of extremes. The first 6 holes are wide open and flat. I mean WIDE OPEN and FLAT. Very plain. Then you toss one into the woods and the majority of the back nine is ridiculously tight. I mean TIGHT. These extremes are so polarizing that I found myself wanting something in between.

Expect the course to be busy. There is a hiking trail that runs along with the course. There was plenty of traffic when I played.
Other Thoughts: Truly a hot and cold course. Personally, I much prefered the wooded holes. They were unforgiving, but most of them had defined fairways. These holes provide the only real challenge on the course. I read a couple reviews that stated there were alot of "luck" holes back here. I can see that argument but IMO they were mostly fair.

The park itself is well taken care of and trimmed tight. It was lush and green for this time of year.

Not a bad course by any means. It's worth a stop if your near by.

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.

 Great beginner course

Pros: -Nice clean park
-Easy-to-follow course layout
-Pretty nice tee pads

Cons: -Not much of a challenge, especially outside the woods
-Wind can be a factor
Other Thoughts: Unless you frown upon a course with holes under 300 feet, this is a fun course to play. There is a 600-foot hole 18, which is a nice wrap-up after throwing mostly fairway drivers in the woods. I've seen people ranging from ages 5 to 65 enjoying this course and I've never found it to be really crowded

Pros: -Good mix of open holes and tight technical wooded holes as well as a good mix of distances.
-Nice Tee Pads
-Nice descriptive and accurate signage
-Usually maintained pretty well
Cons: -Always seems like it's windy which is a factor on the front 9 but not the back 9
-Some holes do seem a bit repetitive
-Until trees grow bigger on the front 9 the holes aren't very challenging for more advanced players
Other Thoughts: Turtlecreek is a great course for all skill levels. It's not too difficult for beginners and advanced players will be challenged on some holes. It's a very fun course to play. I look forward to playing Turtlecreek in the future once the trees on the front 9 mature a little and get bigger, making for some more challenging holes. I highly recommend playing this course at least once because it won't disappoint.

Pros: There is a nice mix of distance holes that allow you to open up and throw for distance with a few short holes that are fun to take a shot at an ace on.
The holes in the woods make sure you better hit your line or you will be in trouble.
Cons: Maybe a little to short, but with the area they were given in the park, they did well. Some of the holes in the open can run into problems with shots from other holes crossing paths.
The rubber tee pads are beginning to deteriorate, either ripping apart or sliding off of the intended area, and some of the tee signs are missing now.
Other Thoughts: It is pretty much always really windy on the holes not in the woods.

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.
