Two different courses
Pros: The front nine is a great par 3 nine with many different shots. Very short, I didn't bring out my distance driver on the front. Alot of birdies and ace runs. On the back nine it is more technical and advanced. The baskets are innova Discatchers and at the right height. Many technical shots and a big wide open par 5. There was nothing that wasn't do able for both beginners and the advanced players.
Cons: Only one tee pad per hole. This adds an easier hole for pros. The front nine baskets were noticeably lower. I'd suggest you practice putting on them before starting your round. There was playground equipment in the middle of some of the holes, and I imagine this could be a big problem during the summer.
Other Thoughts: I did enjoy playing the viurse. There is still some work to do but if you are in the area then play this and Hunter farm. Don't forget to eat local to. A great college community and I can't wait to get back!

Pros: Front 9--There are a lot of fun holes for both beginner and advanced. Short & Open but still has some challenging shots. Very fun and relaxing in a nice park. Landscaping & vegetation in park for this 9 is done well and course kept mowed.
Back 9---VERY technical & challenging course. Nice mix of short & long holes with lots of trees and some elevation.
Cons: Front 9- As this park is very busy, sometimes the baskets are removed for park events without notice and there are often people around near the course...just have to be patient
There probably should be signs directing the players from the basket of 9 to the tee of 10, as its a small walk. Hole 18's tee is slightly dangerous and it does not add any benefit to tee of directly over a road. Could move tee across the road and not affect the par at all.
Other Thoughts: For those coming who have never played, I would suggest you plan on parking near the pool, as you would have a more central location to start and end then parking by hole 1.

Pros: Working at the GE plant right across the street, this course is perfect for a lunch-time round of disc golf. It's not too long or strenuous, and there's virtually no risk of losing your disc. It's a nice course for all skill levels. I've been playing for 7 years and my best round is 4 under; my coworkers who've just started playing have managed as good as 2 under. The current 9 are a variety of short and long, lefty and righty holes. Nothing terribly challenging but still very fun.
Cons: Wood chip/mulch tee pads. Quite frankly, I'd prefer plain grass tee pads, but if you move just left or right of the tee pad, that's exactly what you get (and by the worn grass next to the tee pads, that seems like what people are doing). Baskets are a little low to the ground. Running into the course designers, I'm told the Borough of Grove City didn't want to leave the 1" piece of pipe sticking out of the ground if the baskets were removed, so the baskets are dug into the ground a bit. However, the designer(s) said they're aiming to add an extension piece to put the baskets up to the correct height.
If you're looking for a long course with a bunch of obstacles, look elsewhere.
Other Thoughts: The course is only 9 holes now, but the designers laid out 18 and are simply waiting on funding for the other 9. If you play this course at all, make a donation so we can have 9 more to play! The current 9 seem to be the more beginner-friendly of the 18 planned holes. Looking at the layout for all 18, one of the other 9 plays by the pond, two play near the pool, 3 play by the wooded area around the monument. Altogether, the 9 that aren't built look pretty cool, so I'd like to see them installed sooner rather than later.
