my favorite leisure course in Dayton
Pros: This course has a nice combination of wood shots and open shots. It has a little bit of difficulty to it but most holes are beginner rated. Some of the shots you cannot see the basket so it's kind of a crap shoot to get a decent shot but most of the time you get a decent shot anyhow. I like the wood shots because they are somewhat challenging. Open shots are a combination of short and too easy or long and decent. not a super challenging course but fun for just an afternoon out.
Cons: I agree with the other commentators that the first hole should actually be whole number 2. It makes a lot more sense because it's right off the parking lot. The walk to hole 6 is hard to find the first time and is a good trek across the park. Some guys just come and just play through the woods from 6 through 10 just for practice and to get a couple throws in....
Other Thoughts: t's kind of a nice course when you're playing with others for some kicks and giggles. It's not for heavy competition but more just for goofing around.

Pros: Concrete Tees
Good mixture of 'deep' woods, open field, and Mature trees & grass
Water in Play
Cons: Some of the Tee signs are out dated and hard to read or missing.
Multi Use park so you have to watch for people
LONG walk from 5 to 6
Baskets are banged up and old
Other Thoughts: Make sure you bring a map when you come and note how to get from 5 to 6. The rest of the holes are laid out logically. Might make sense to Start at hole 6.
I really like to course, it's a classic. The park is also very clean.

Pros: This is an awesome course because it has some very challanging holes. I love some of the holes that you can't see at first. Then you see the hole and you actualy had a good shot!
Cons: It's hard to find the first tee. You actualy have to go across the rec center and in to the woods after hole 5.

Nice and Easy
Pros: Well maintained concrete tees with nice, accurate map of the hole.
Good use of mature trees throughout the park.
Excellent course for beginners to gain confidence with their shot selection.
Cons: Hole markers did not include par. Some of the holes had it written on with marker, but several were worn off. Also, the mounting screws on some of the markers went right through the distance of the hole on the board.
Tee boxes were different sizes depending on the length of the hole. This was hard to get used to.
The walk between holes 5 and 6 was extremely long. Without a course map, it would be almost impossible to find your way between these holes.
Had to walk past the first basket to get to the first tee. Hole 2 would make a better beginning hole.
There was a lot of foot traffic, but for a public park, this should be expected I guess.
Other Thoughts: For a beginner like myself, this course is great. If I were a bit more seasoned, this course would not offer too many challenges.
Next time I play, I will start at hole two and finish with hole one. Hole 18 is a nice finishing hole, but the walk to the first tee is not really worth it.
Although the majority of the holel played through trees, the course had an open feel to it. Park patrons did not get in the way too much, and the DG players were spread out enough that we rarely had to wait and we were not holding anyone up behind us.
I definitely recommend this course to anyone new to the sport. Nice setting and easy course that is very forgiving on almost all shots.

Pros: Home course for me. I started learning Disc Golf on this course. It is a fun course with plenty of variety. Course may be challenging for beginners during the woods holes 7,8,9,10,12. Holes 1,2,3,4 are short but fun. There are a few long holes around 400 , holes 5,13,14,15,18. Hole 16 is On top of a Hill, and 17 runs next to the Pond. I always have a great time playing this course, it has a great variety of open and wooded holes.
Cons: Walk from 5 to 6 is long but being that it's my home course its not all that bad.
Other Thoughts: Hole #2 should be Hole #1

Hard to navigate, worth a try
Pros: -Good pads
-Mostly well designed
Cons: -Hard/Impossible to navigate alone without prior knowledge. Hole #6 is over 1,500' away and with no signs pointing to it.
-Not very tough
-One basket has been stolen
-#1 tees off a few hundred feet from the parking lot but #2 is right by it..should be re-numbered to where #1 becomes hole #18 and #2 becomes #1..
Other Thoughts: Please, please someone local take care of that #6 situation- put up signs, spray paint the sidewalk, hang an arrow on the basket or make up a plaque with instructions. Someone new to the sport or this course could quit the round and never find that part of the course, or have to backtrack for a very long time/walk trying to find it.
