Pros: This course offers a variety of shots.
This course is a very good beginner friendly course.
Advanced players can work on their mids and putting for 2's here.
The last two holes are very wooded.
Several holes require players to manage to drive through some moderate to large gaps in woods.
A decent amount of elevation changes add some difficulty.
Cons: The parks department and/or the people who manage the park do not do a very good job of trimming you can easily lose several discs.
This course is on the short side for the majority of holes.
Most of the holes are very open and dont require any kind of line shaping.
Almost every hole does not have a concrete tee pad. Some have weird tees like carpets or other materials.
Water and restroom facilities are very lacking.
Other Thoughts: This course is somewhat in the middle of nowhere. It can be hard to find if it is your first time.
You can have an enjoyable round here if you just top by or if you want a break from the normal cincy parks. However this is not a park to plan a roadtrip too.

One of the better parks around Cincinnati
Pros: -Very well designed
-Variety: The course goes through woods with heavy under brush, through some open type areas, and through another wooded area near the end with little under brush but not as much room to toss.
-Nice Tee Signs: Including par, distance to basket, and a picture to show which way to go. Also near the parking lot there is a large colored map.
Hole 1 has a small creek that goes through it and the basket is on top of a bank that plateaus off. There are wood slat steps to help players get up the bank with ease.
Hole 7 is a shot through trees and over a creek that is neat.
12's basket is on a wooden pyramid.
15 has a shot through a gap in some trees. From there you have to go around a patch of trees which are extremely close together to get to the basket on the opposite side.
Pretty much all the holes at Gulley are fun and challenging.
I've only been playing around a year, but this park is easily one of the better ones around this area.
Cons: -No running water = no drinking fountains or sinks (there are portalets with hand sanitizer).
-May be a bit short for really good players. IMO the wholes are plenty long enough with the amount of woods and bends in most of the holes.
-Dirt Tee Pads (someone has put carpet down on a few of them)
-Hole 1's fairway can flood after a heavy rain. (someone put down some stone cylinders as a walkway to get through the area that floods)
Other Thoughts: I love this park.
Bring drinks, and enjoy this hidden gem.

A Hidden Gem
Pros: Well maintained with a little elevation thrown in and a lot of shots that will challenge your placement and accuracy. Great signage through out the course including signs pointing you towards the next tee if it isn't immediately apparent where to go.
The course also looked to be well-maintained and quite clean. Also, I was the only person in the park for my entire stay so you probably won't have to worry about other park users or waits at tees.
Cons: Some holes are a bit on the short side. The dirt/carpet tee pads weren't the greatest and a few holes have you throwing near fenced off areas which might be a pain should you have a really terrible shot.
Other Thoughts: Despite its short-comings, I had a really enjoyable round at Gulley Park. The park had a great mix of open and wooded/semi-wooded holes. Some were on the short side as I mentioned above but almost all of the short holes involved a challenge of some sort, usually in the form of trying to hit a gap in the trees to make it to the basket.
The open holes were just that, very open and straight forward for the most part. There were quite a few that involved making it through a gap of some sort (#13 and #15 come to mind right now). Hole #12 had an interesting elevated basket to change things up a bit as well.
Overall, I'd recommend a round at this course. It won't knock your socks off by any stretch but it would be hard not to have a good time playing here.

Pros: This is one of the best designed courses that I have played with a nice mixture of open field holes and wooded holes. Even the wooded holes have wide fairways and allow you to let loose.
Cons: Many of the holes have flat fairways and water stands on them after a rain.
Other Thoughts: The park has portable toilets which is a nice feature.

Pros: # 16 was a beast as you had to throw your drive through a small (10 foot maybe) gap between trees and into an open area and then you had to turn your next shot around a group of tall skinny trees as the basket was in the rear of the trees. Good luck, and a good hole.
#13 basket was on a homade elevated platform (I wonder if this great idea is patened??)
# 1 and # 10 started in the same general area.
Port a johns available
plenty of parking
Cons: holes # 2, # 3 and # 4 are about the same thing as all you do is throw from one side of the field to the other. DIRT tees.
Other Thoughts: I lost a glove somewhere on the course the day I played this hidden gem as I see nothing but good things coming from this DG course and park (if you find the glove, you can have it). Beautiful country park

Gulley Park DGC
Pros: Nice course. Chainstar baskets. 18 holes. Good mix of wooded and open holes. Great for kids and beginners. Slight evolution. Portible Restroom in parking lot. Mix of long and short holes. Excellent teesigns.
Cons: Could use some kind of teepad. Bees nest on Hole 17. Only a few lefty holes. Thorn bushes. No trashcans. Two HUGE German Shepard's wondering the course, will NOT leave you alone. Honk and drive at them with your car, but they might follow you.
Other Thoughts: Perfect course. Mason Sports Park and Williamsburg are a few minutes away so go play those too.

Pros: Good wooded course not to thick but some gap shots call for hard turns. Good mix with some open holes. Seemed to be well taken care of mowed fairways not alot of trash.
Cons: No teepads, bathrooms, or trash cans. Could use some more d, and elevation. With that you cant build elevation and they did good with what they had.
Other Thoughts: a new course with alot of upside park has room to add a few 500+ holes. The design keeps you in and out of open, light wood and two heavily wooded holes.

Pros: Lots of variation in the course. Tight areas in the woods and narrow throws between wooded areas.
Cons: Muddys tees and way too much underbrush in the woods if you have a bad throw.
Other Thoughts: Fun course, this was my first time playing and it got me hooked.
