Can be appreciated for what it is
Pros: It's a disc golf course!
A great way for young beginners to get a feel for the game without getting frustrated
Very fun looking playground for the kids
Excellent use of a limited amount of space
A short drive to Roscoe Ewing Park
Cons: Anyone over absolute beginner might get bored very easily
Very little in terms of elevation change / challenge / obstacles
Other Thoughts: The enjoyment you get out of Poolside Course in Medina will be directly proportional to the attitude you come into it with. If you're anything other than an absolute beginner and are looking for an awesome challenge, then this course isn't for you. The holes play fairly straight and short, with only a couple playing through any kind of foliage. I'm bad to horrible, and I found myself trying to get my elusive first ace on three of the holes. So yeah, the challenge level isn't high. But that's not what this course is about. Where Poolside excels is that it is possibly the PERFECT location and difficulty to attract new players and casual players to the sport. The course plays around a playground, and several families were trying out the game with frisbees. (a few had discs) Saw a good mix of ages. The Jenkins family (who designed the course) probably should be knighted for getting this course installed. For the experienced player, Poolside Medina can serve as a warm up for the much larger and more challenging Roscoe Ewing Course right down the street, as PSM plays very quickly. (our group of six, including two young kids played through in a blistering 25 minutes) Is it a destination course for people who have been playing for awhile? No, but it's a great introductory / warm - up course.
