Pros: This is a nice course playing around a lake,a creek, and a very nice campground. Pier-Lon is a better than averege campground course in Medina. I really like how water comes into play on holes 4,5, and 6. Holes vary in length from as short as 118 and long as 385. I played this course alot while camping and didnt get boring. The design is decent and really takes advantage of trees and water on the property. Baskets are nice and there are tee signs on every hole. There are many other activities on site such as swimming and boating. Holes 4-6 are a fun stretch of holes playing by water and through a small pine woods. Course was in nice shape.
Cons: The main problem on the course for me was navigation. I had a hard time finding hole 4-6 which are about 450 ft. from #3. The natural teeboxes got very muddy during the rain, so I had to tee off from the sides. Grass was a little thick on the right side of #5 and had to look 10 minutes for my disc.
Other Thoughts: A nice course for all skill levels.
Hole 1: A good length par 3 into a grove of pine trees.
Hole 2: A par 4 that forces you to either curve around a large tree or shoot under it.
Hole 3: A dogleg left into another grove of pine trees.
Hole 4: A safe shot would put you down a hill with a long, but clear 2nd shot. A risky shot would be to shoot over lake and be close to basket for a possible eagle.
Hole 5: Plays alongside tall grass and thick trees. Lake on right, tall grass on left.
Hole 6: A fun hole that plays along side the lake and into a small pine woods. Try to keep disc on right side of fence.
Hole 7: The shortest hole on the course is a putter drive hole and a easy ace.
Hole 8: Another short par 3 where the basket is very close to a large tree.
Hole 9: A long par 4 makes you shoot a low shot underneath the branches of the tree. Can be an easy birdie if you play your second shot correctly.
