Pros: good variety of shots and trees to play around, good chance at an ace
Cons: concrete around holes scuffs discs. lots of slow traffic and big group.
Other Thoughts: it is easy to shoot well under par here which most think as bad but your really playing against others not just the par. as in a lot of golf courses some players can shoot well under par on some but its hard to hold at even on others.

Pros: Fun course, good layout. Great for beginners or families. Good chance to get an ace. Also, good if you want to squeeze in a quick round.
Cons: Very crowded due to popularity. Most holes are too easy for any experienced disc golfer.
Other Thoughts: Good course for practicing mid-range and putter shots. Experienced players will shoot in the 40's. Newer players should be able to have a decent round, too.

It is what it is- Introduce your kids or new people to the wonderful game of Disc Golf. A shorter course is still better than no course!!!

Pros: Great mix of woods and meadows with tree overhang for summer playing without the sunburn.
Quick holes that are great for beginners or people looking to work on their short game.
The holes are fairly maintained and there is enough drainage that the course is playable right after a rain.
Cons: The holes may be too short for some.
Other Thoughts: This course is great for introducing a date to the sport... you should be able to show off a little here without seeming like a d*ck. Play a round (or two, the course is short enough), eat dinner at a restaurant nearby, then go see a movie.

 Extremely Short and Tight

Pros: The course is located in a nice, secluded area. There is traffic outside the park, but the park itself is rather quiet. The fairways are mature. A round can be played here very quickly. Tee pads and baskets were in fair condition.
Cons: This course is just too short to be considered a challenge. Sometimes there are short courses that offer some technical shots and cause you to shape your shots. I didn't even get that from this course. As has been stated by others, this is "ace run heaven". You could honestly play this course with only a Roc/Buzz/Kite/Impact/(midrange of your choice) and shoot well below 50....quite possibly below 40.
Other Thoughts: It is what it is. An older, shorter course. When whamos were the disc, this would have been a great place to play. However, this course is unable to adapt with the times as there is not a lot of real estate to work with. You should not even have to pull out a fairway driver on this course. Mids all the way. It is not a challenge. But if you just want a quick 45 minute round and you are nearby, give it a shot. You might end up with an ace...or two or three.

Pros: Short course with interesting holes. Almost all the holes are less than 200' and there is even one hole that's less than 100'

Lots of fun to practice short game by playing this course. Deuces available on each hole.
Cons: Asphault around the base of baskets chews up discs.
Other Thoughts: Ace - Hole 5 - 1/1/09

Pros: This a popular course and you could always find someone to play with here. The course plays through the woods with well defined fairways. Even the area outside of the fairways is not thick with undergrowth because of the heavy traffic.

Lots of birdies to be had! I witnessed 2 aces the first time I played this course. One of them was probably only 90 feet.

Good place to come and work on your midrange/approach game.
Cons: Can be extremely crowded on nice days. Look out for flying discs as the holes are crowded together.

The teepads are asphalt, which is better than dirt - but not ideal.
Other Thoughts: This is a pitch and putt course, where it is easy to shoot under par. Great for beginners, but only if you want to fight through the crowd. Not as good as other courses in the area - but still a fun course to play.

-Easy to get to
-Close to restaurants and shopping
-Front 9 and Back 9 have close starting locations
-Easy navigation and flow
-Teepads are asphalt
-Designed in the woods so lots of shade
-Restrooms at start of both front 9 and back 9
-Located in Winton Woods so lots a various activities
-LOTS of player traffic, especially on weekends and during the summer
-Baskets are placed in a 10ft ring of asphalt, so it beats discs extremely quick
-18 out of 18 holes are under 300ft
-12 out of 18 holes are under 200ft
-#11 is a 90ft hole
-Not too many obstacles (since the clearing)
-Most holes can be deuced fairly easily
-Doesn't test many shots or discs
-Most holes have limited or no trees from the teepad to the basket
Other Thoughts:
Final Verdict:
Overall this course is not challenging, unless you're a beginner or teaching a beginner. Course is pretty open on most holes. Can easily be played in 30-40 minutes. If you're in the area, it's a good, quick game. More experienced players should avoid this course. This is where a beginner should go to learn the game.

Pros: Good flow from hole to hole. Can either start on front or back nine. Good practice on wide range of shots.
Cons: At this point it has been to cleared out makes it way to easy.
Other Thoughts: For anybody who rips this course if you could have played it 20 years ago you would have been impressed. It was an extremely hard course for the equipment you had to use. Had an old 150 gram professional frisbee big black one....hahaha. Play that course with one of those and you get a far better appreciation of what you had to do.

Pros: I have such fond memories of playing this course in the early 80's. Back then we all played it with the big trash can lid frisbees and it was a hard course. If I remember correctly the longest hole on the course is 290' and it was a bomb to get out that far when the new style disc golf discs weren't around.

The course is heavily played and it's an ok place to bring beginners or people who are just playing with frisbees. It's more of a picnic atmosphere than a disc golf course as we all know them now.

There are asphault tee pads. There's a restroom at the beginning of course. It also plays in 2 loops so that you can start on hole 1 or 10 with no problem. You will often run in to groups of 10 here so its nice to be able to start on the back 9 so you don't have to follow them.
Cons: This course is best played with old school plastic or with just a putter. It's very short. The shortest hole is 90', the longest is around 290' and there's only a handfull of holes over 200' on the course. There are usually tons of people on the course. The more advanced disc golfers in the area don't go here because there are about 30 other courses in the area. With that in mind you should definitely look out for stray plastic from people who tend to yank every now and then.

There's a couple places where the pins and tee pads are very close together. This wasn't a very big problem back in the day because a big trash can lid frisbee didn't hurt that much when it hits you but the new ones do. So be careful when you're throwing and watch out for stray discs.

The pins have an asphault ring around them that's about 12 feet in diameter. I assume it was an attempt to make a green but what it really does is completely screw you if you skip one off of it on the fly. It makes for a lot of really long putts after good drives.
Other Thoughts: Sometimes I miss the innocent days when Winton Woods was a hard course. I wish I could see the GCFDA Course Challange scores from tournaments played back in the early 80's. If you played a tournament there now you had best shoot about -16 per round or you'll get smoked.
