Pros: -This course was pretty challenging. It takes me about 40-45 minutes to play through (although some of that time is spent locating tees).

-The terrain is interesting. The trees and hillside make the course difficult and rather unique.

-Great location. I have been going to Cincinnati State for the past two years, and this is the first time I've played here, but since I am taking evening classes now, it's very accessible.

-Both times I've played have been in the evening, but even when driving by during the day, it seems as if it's not a very heavily played course.
Cons: -Very difficult to locate tees. Most are only marked by a stick with a ribbon tied to it (some of which are just lying on the ground), two holes (4 and 7) have a brick tee, and hole 6 is missing a tee marker entirely.

-The course is right between Central Parkway and Cincinnati State's parking lot, so inexperienced (and maybe even some experienced) players may find themselves hitting cars.

-Absolutely none of the courses have a par listed, which makes playing alone very boring.
Other Thoughts: Overall, the course is just so-so. It was different than any other course I've played, which made it fun. If the course was more clearly marked, it would be much more enjoyable.

Pros: - Hole 1 has a nice elevation change. You have to toss down it from the parking lot without hitting a tree or the guard rail.

-Hole 9 includes a hill you have to toss over. The basket is on the other side in a wooded area.

-The hole courses plays on the side of a hill, which is kind of neat.
Cons: -Confusing without a map: Most of the tees are mark with little wooden stakes (a few were missing last time I played).

-Tees are too small: The ones that do have tees are too small.

-Its possible to hit a car as the course plays close to roads, and parking lots.
Other Thoughts: This course is worth playing, but don't go out of your way to get there. Just play it if your in the area.

Burnet woods is really close so you could hit that while your in the area as well. Burrnet is missing 2 baskets however, but you could still make a 16 hole game out of it.
