Ace Runs in The Sun
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: 1) Elevation changes
2) Short and long tees
3) Many ace runs
4) Clean park; well maintained
5) A few interesting and unique hole features add challnge and scenery
6) Highlight holes: 11
7) Good signage
Cons: 1) 90%+ is wide open
2) No concrete tees
3) Lack of obstacles
Other Thoughts: I shot this course from the short tees and have never played the longs so my review will only be from the perspective of the shorts.
This is an enjoyable ace run course. It is way, way open, with only 2 or 3 holes involving the woods. Most holes have no trees at all. If you're looking for a fun, relaxing course to play, this is it. Not too much challenge...just running at aces for the most part. The course is very clean and well kept. There are a few hills that allow for some elevation to come into play...some baskets on top of the hills and some at the bottom where you shoot from the top of the hill. There are train tracks right next to the course and I thought that added to the enjoyment somehow because there were quite a few trains that came through during the round.
There are some holes that have unique features. Hole 6 has the basket on a raised platform surrounded by railroad ties. Hole 8's basket is on a raised brick platform. Hole 11's basket is suspended from a cross-type wooden structure. Hole 16 has some tall wooden posts on either side of the fairway about 50-80' in front of the basket that you have to navigate around. Hole 17's basket is on a small railroad tie platform. These features add to the scenery of the course and to the challenge.
My main complaints about the course are that there are no concrete tees and the openness of the course. This is not a course that you can really play after a good rain; especially from the long tees where you have to get a good run up for maximum distance. Further, the course is so open that it really affects the challenge factor of the course. This isn't the designer's fault, but it is true nevertheless. I liked that they tried to increase the challenge by adding the platforms and other unique features described above.
I am giving this course a 3 as is, but I really think it deserves a 2.75. I'm just not willing to give it a 2.5 as this score is described as decent/typical, which I think it surpasses. If they install concrete tees and plant a few trees, this course could be a solid 3.

Worth a visit
Pros: 1. Clean Park
2. Great Tee Signs
3. Pro & Am tee's on 90% of the holes
4. Excellent use of elevation and available land
5. Most of the course is off to itself with not allot of interferance from non players
6. Park hasd other activites for other family members while you get your disc'n fix
7. Great little next tee markers hanging from each basket,
Cons: 1. Only 9 Holes
2. A few holes had backwards walks from basket to tee but nothing crazy
3. Bugs can be aggressive in the few wooded holes, bring spray or a bat
Other Thoughts: This course was just plain sweet in my opinion, the land given for the course was well utilized having several uphill, downhill shots and hole #7 is definately the signature hole, 375 uphill with the basket surronded by a brick wall type layout at the base. Would love to see this turned into 18.
If your in the area I highly reccomend checking this little gem out.
Kudos to the designer!

Nice addition to this NICE community.
Pros: 9 baskets in a nice community.
multiple tees (blue and red) on most of the holes.
considering how short some of the holes we're they're was still some challenging holes to be played. But I thought the DGC could even be more challenging than it was as they do have the room . But it's solid 9 hole DGC that hopefully will be heavily used by the Mc Comb and surrounding area.
I like how the hills we're used (# 2's basket and # 3 tee and # 7's basket)
Cons: kind of a short course for some tastes.
only 9 holes (I saw ample room for expansion).
# 9 could present problem as you do cross a walking path (But it's clearly recognized that the played should look both ways before throwing). And I thought since the basket does cross the walking path, why not put a sleeve on the other side of the small creek near where both creeks meet and put a basket there, with another hole coming back along the baseball diamond and towards the utility building or the area where an old bridge once stood).
Didn't see any trash cans nor benches nor a kiosk for DG information to be posted.
only one or two trees on most of the holes.
Other Thoughts: For a DG tourist like myself I thought the directions we're kinda misleading as hwy. 186 turns into Park rd. It's not a big deal in this small community but it could be noted just for us tourists or out of towner's.

Nice 9-Hole Getaway
Pros: Compared with other nine hole courses that I've played (i.e. shawnee, ottawa park Lima, and Firestine Park Findlay), this one was the best. It is a nice stop for anyone traveling to another local course, or who just wants a quick round, this is a great course. It's not very intimidating to look at, but with some narrow fairways, and the reservoir in play, this course can cause some serious problems for seasoned players.
There is also a single hill on the course which was used nicely in the design. There aren't very many uphill shots in this part of Ohio so it was a nice change of pace.
Also, there are multiple tee locations so you can play 18 with some variation if you like.
Cons: The course is small with short holes, and few trees on many of the holes.
Other Thoughts: The body of the course is wide open with few trees, so bringing some water on a hot day is a must, especially if you plan to play 18.
