Great for Learners

Pros: -Concrete Tees
-Nice tee Signs
-Can play with one disc
-Great for kids
Cons: -No Free Parking
-Very Short for experienced players
-Very repetitive on back 9
-Not the best flow
-Parking lot and road too close to fairways
Other Thoughts: If your just starting this is a great course, but more of a pitch and putt, or playing with just a roc/buzzz. If your in the area and want to play a round drive down to griggs for more of a challenge. I played this just to see what it was like and I found it lackluster, but I have played a round and found much better courses

Pros: + The tees are outstanding. The large grooved concrete makes grip no problem on run-up drives, even during rounds in the rain.
+The course is always well maintained and mowed.
+The signs are excellent (even though distance is measured in yards instead of feet).
+Benches can be found on multiple tees to rest.
Cons: -Parking is a SEVERE issue for those without an Ohio State West Campus Parking Pass. There is metered parking in the back of the lot but then it is a good hike to reach the first tee. Make sure you pay attention to where you park as Ohio State Security monitors the lot constantly and you will get a ticket.
-The course layout is, for the lack of a better word, terrible. Half of the holes will have you playing in direct proximity to heavily used roads and parking lots. Hole #1 in particular will be skipped during most rounds as it has you driving through a field (located next to the Jesse Owens West center) that is heavily occupied by students. While some may view this as an added "challenge," It is essentially a lawsuit waiting to happen.
-Only one set of tees/baskets are present with no real room for alternates in the future.
-Facilities for non-OSU students are severely lacking.
-Shot/hole variety is basically non-existent. You will get deja vu from seeing the same type of open, unobstructed shot over and over again.
Other Thoughts: I lived within a three minute drive of this course for two years and still remain less than impressed. I would recommend it for beginners or intermediates, yet without accuracy while driving it could very well result in a broken windshield. There is little to no imagination required to hit par which can make the course get boring quick (and I have played in all seasons/conditions).
Columbus is quickly blossoming into a disc golf city. It is because of this that I issued my rating in accordance and comparison of other local courses. OSU simply cannot stand up against the others. It can provide a quick round in between classes, though does not merit going out of your way to play.
