A lot of potential!
Pros: Clean, safe and fun. Very family friendly course. Good course for a new player or to take someone that has trouble with 300+ft holes. Has a lot of potential!
Cons: Under construction. Tees pads are just grass (only a con because I prefer concrete or rubber) holes are all pretty short and straight forward. Needs more obstacles.
Other Thoughts: Holes have begun being named. It's a fun easy course, good for staying warm and sharp in between big games. It's got construction going through about half if it, and the woods suck for thorns. It's on the property of a private Christian school but is public to play... Keep your hippie refreshments at home as grove city police are back there often and they are bored just as often. Let make sure this course has a proper up bringing! Take care of it and have fun!!!
Decent, basic, casual

Pros: Situated in the spacious land surrounding the Grove City Church of the Nazarene, this 18 hole disc golf course circles clockwise to the right, along the wood line around the sports fields for the front nine, then left (counterclockwise) around the northern open space for the back. Using brand new DGA baskets, natural turf tees with toe boards and tee signs, the challenge is scaled to the casual to Recreational player, with all holes being relatively flat, mostly in the open, and all under 300 feet in length. Holes 10 and 11 just barely enter into the edge of the woods to provide the most interesting challenge.
The course plays fairly safely, because all baskets are visible ahead of you, and are separated from the other activities here. The course offers a decent activity for parents who've dropped the kids off for sports practice or at the playground.
Cons: I took the liberty of drawing up a map because we weren't the only group out there trying to find the start of the 'other nine'. Once you have seen it on a map, the flow is mostly logical, even though the finish at hole 18 leaves you about 250 yards from where you probably parked by the practice basket and hole 1.
Hole distances marked on the tee signs appear to be accurate only on 6, 8, 11, 14 & 16. The distances entered for 'white tees' here on DGCR on 8/10/14 were paced out for a closer estimate. When the construction gets finished, it would be nice to see a more accurate number, and the signage updated.
Speaking of the construction, the practice basket, and holes 1 & 9 currently play in the dirt and gravel. And expect a lot of highway noise as you play holes 3 through 5.
There is little challenge here for the Intermediate player and above, all of whom can, and should deuce any given hole on the course.
If a newer player does get into the woods, they'll need to be mindful of thorns and poison ivy while searching for their disc
Other Thoughts: Compliments to the folks who put this in: it's the only course southwest of Columbus, and handy off the highway at the Stringtown Road exit.
