Pros: - Great tee signs with graphics showing not only where the basket is, but also where the next tee is from the basket.
- Each hole is unique that require a great mix of different shots.
- A nice practice basket
- Mature trees and a good use of the elevation changes throughout the park.
- A few benches located throughout and permanent restrooms available.
Cons: - Because there was a layer of snow/ice the tee pads were not very helpful.
- Between a few holes there were some dangerous walks (11 basket to 12 tee) where you might get in the way of the group behind you.
- Only other complaint was that 18 did not end where you parked. So it was a little bit of a walk back to the car.
Other Thoughts: This course was a great find. I enjoyed the unique challenge of each hole and how easy it was to navigate playing it for the first time.
I look forward to playing it when it gets warmer out.
I would recommend this course to beginners through more advanced players as it has something for everyone.

Pros: Englewood is located in a beautiful park setting. A good mix of open and tight shots. Nice rubber pads and good baskets. Shouldn't have too much trouble getting around, or losing discs. Family friendly and good for any skill level.
Cons: No tee markers. High grass on a couple of holes can be a problem with errant throws.
Other Thoughts: I love this course. It is challenging enough, but still good for beginners. The scenery here is really beautiful.

Pros: fun track in a beautiful location
a real escape
couple of ace runs....I think every course should have a 250 foot hole that can be had
its always a bonus and actually a challenge for the better players who will lament not cashing a duece
Cons: none really
Other Thoughts: I am biased because I grew up in Engleweed
wish it would have been put in years ago
kudos to the dayton area for making the sport grow

 A Quick Favorite

Pros: This course is very well-kept. It is always in great condition. This course is simple to navigate. Easy to walk from the baskets to the next tee. This is a great course if you want a good challenge, and don't have alot of time to play. The new tee signs make it look fresh and updated.
Cons: The tee-pads would be better off concreted because the rubber is slick. It's hard to get a good footing when it's muddy.

Pros: New tee signs and course map are wonderful additions.

Offset from the rest of reserve, so there is little chance of hitting cars/hikers/runners.

Brush is usually thin enough to find shots gone astray.

Overall, very nice job placing a good course in a relatively small area.
Cons: Rubber tees

Mostly wide open shots with little technical difficulty or distance (some might consider this a pro)

Stinging nettle in brush is a pain during warm months if you are not wearing long pants/shirt.

Hole 5 has a tendency to get very muddy when it rains, though it appears some work has been done to assist with the draining.
Other Thoughts: This is one of my favorite courses to play in the Dayton area. Not too challenging but a fun round which can be finished in 40 minutes if you're in a hurry. Even with a horrible drive, most holes are easily '3'ed.

There is a large broken branch hanging over hole 9 that may fall down with ice/snow this winter. Just watch out if you hear a crack above you.

Within the last year, a bald eagle has been spotted flying over the reserve, though I have not heard a sighting in the last couple months.

 OK park course

Pros: The course plays through a rolling park with mature trees. About half the holes have some rough off the fairways to punish errant shots, the other half have even more of a park style feel with mature trees and open lanes. A few holes have some nice use of the small elevation changes in the park, and there is an elevated pin to add a fun challenge.

There is a nice mix of hole shapes where a line is forced by the trees, with holes calling for left and right turning shots and some straight holes mixed in for balance. There is not a ton of length, but it still feels like the hole lengths are mixed up enough that they don't all feel exactly the same. The tees are not bad, they have ok grip and are large enough for the length of hole here. There is a decent hole map on the kiosk, it's worth looking at and taking a picture of to help with navigation.
Cons: There are no tee signs at all, making navigation a little rough without a map or guide at times. There are areas where multiple pads are in the same area, and with no signs or even numbers on the pads, you have to do extra walking to make sure you're throwing on the right hole.

There are a lot of unused features in this park, making it a little disappointing after driving in on a cool dam looking down at nice woods. The course stays completely out of the denser woods that would make for some nice tighter holes to balance the open park style shots that dominate here. The course plays pretty flat over all, with several holes looking up at the awesome possibilities of the dam's elevation, I hope they at least use that for some neat temp holes in tournaments.
Other Thoughts: This course is good, but doesn't have enough variety or challenge to make it great. It needs some signage pretty badly, and some additional holes bringing the elevation and woods around the course into play would really bring this course up a few notches. Beginners will like this course, with enough trees to keep it interesting, but open lines and little punishment. More experienced players will find it a deuce or die type course, with mostly reachable holes that don't make aggressive play very risky.

 Shade in the summer heat

Pros: The best course I've played so far in the Dayton area. A good variety of holes out in the open and in the woods. Even the open holes are often shaded by large trees on either side so it's a great place to play on a hot day. Very well maintained with mowed fairways, and no out-of-control "disc- eating" rough. Shorter holes make it a good course for beginners, but the varied basket placements make it enjoyable for experienced players as well.
Cons: No tee signs ... so print out a score sheet (see hole info. tab) before you go to know the distances.
Avoid if it has recently rained ... rubber tee pads are very slick when wet.
If you like long holes, this course only has two over 400'
Other Thoughts: I'd give this course 4 stars if it had concrete pads and tee signs.

Pros: Very nice short course. You do not have to be a long thrower to do well hear. Loved the rubber tee boxes. throw a 62 first time out. I average 69
Cons: The course is 40 minutes from my house.
Other Thoughts: I wish they would install another 18 that is longer. the park is big enough
