Short and Sweet
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -Good mix of open and technical shots.
-Plenty of parking and the course landscaping is well kept
-Great signs that make it easy to navigate through the park.
-Very family friendly course. No throw is too long for beginners, although a creek runs along holes 1-4 which could be an issue.
-Hole 4 is really neat! It's short, but you throw a semi-blind shot over the creek. The basket is right in the open, but this still has a wow factor.
Cons: -Basically every hole here is birdie-able, which is fun in itself. But, if you're looking for a course to challenge you, this probably isn't the place to go.
-Hole 7 can be a con or a pro depending on your tastes. It's a pretty short hole (around 114 ft. I think) but there is only one small lane you can take to the basket. If you like a technical shot where par is acceptable, you'll like this one. BUT, miss throw and that par could turn into a double bogie pretty quickly because of how thick the woods are.
Other Thoughts: Overall this course flows well and is a fun course. It plays quickly and is better suited for beginners / relaxed play.

Good round at Steen.
Pros: This course is short and technical. It had signs that posted a picture from the tee to the basket and another picture of basket to the tee.
Cons: A few water hazard holes and some thick woods.
Other Thoughts: Good short course.

Pros: This is a short but fun course set in a small town park. This park doesn't seem to get nearly as much traffic as the 9 hole course just down the street so this looks like a more suitable place for a course.
There are nice tee signs with photos of the hole from the tee with the basket marked and include the name of the hole and the distance in feet. There are small concrete tee pads. The course flows very well so no map is needed to get from one hole to the next.
Hole 14 has to be the signature hole on the course. It's 270 feet and an uphill anhyzer shot where the basket is tucked in between some pine trees. Very fun hole. Hole 4 plays over the creek which is pretty cool also.
Cons: Hole 7 gets my award for the most ridiculous hole I've ever played... EVER! The hole is only 118ft, but the trees are so close together the best you can hope for is to get halfway there on your drive. I've played my fair share of bad holes but this has to be the worst. Thankfully this is the only hole like this on the course.
The course is short with only about half the holes over 250ft. But it looks like this course is aimed more towards beginners and families so I didn't mind that it was so short. There is water very much in play on the first 4 holes, which isn't very beginner friendly.
The shot selection isn't that good as there is only one shot that forced an anhyzer shot for a RHBH player.
The concrete tee pads are the smallest I've ever seen, but most of the holes are so short you don't need much of a run up anyway. They are pretty close to the ground so it wasn't a problem for me to start off the back and step onto it for my first step.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course to introduce new players to the game and for the locals, but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way to play here. If you're looking for more of a challenge go to St. Thomas.

Pros: course is a great short course, nice shots that very from long bombs to short techinal shots. Don't have to worry about losing disc's that much. well maintained course land. some diffrent elevation makes for a fun round. porta pottys on site by hole 1. Lots of parking, Short course so great for a double game.
Cons: Water is down a steep hill if your shots go arrand to the left on the first couple holes. Bugs can sometimes be a problem but nothing some spray wont fix. One of the holes go over the parking lot to watch out for cars.
Other Thoughts: the people of aylmer dont really understand disc golf and i have had some people try and bring my disc's back to me lol or keep walking to stop in the middle of the fairway. new course to the city so will take some time to get used to us.
