Busy, but Fun

Pros: +Quick 18 traffic permitting
+Lots of ace runs
+Plenty of parking
+Clean well maintained park
+Ample variety in lines and elevation
Cons: -Teepads are uneven and slick. Asphalt surrounding the baskets is hard on putters
-Rough is thick in the summer
-Heavy traffic despite the fees
-Layout is confusing for casuals
-Very compact so keep an eye out for errant throws
Other Thoughts: It's not bad and it is far from perfect but there is just enough fun to be had here to keep you coming back for more. The park is showing its age. The pads are uneven and a few baskets are wobbly. There are a lot of casuals and families that frequent here so be patient and keep an eye out for chuckers. I have seen more than one person get hit here, but I've seen just as many aces as well. I see a lot of players get discs stuck in the cedars too. Don't be surprised if you run into some very large groups on the course. There isn't a practice basket so be mindful of using 18 to warm up when players are trying to finish.

I like it
Pros: This is a fun course to practice throws, part of the Hamilton county park district so 10 bucks a year, good elevation changes on holes and varying distances
Cons: Without map you are throwing blind, disc goes into woods disc is gone, course gets crowded expect to wait on people and duck
Other Thoughts: I have lost several disc in the woods here

Pros: Course offers a great challenge for new to intermediate players. Its location adds to a fun layout of woods and hills. A few holes offer a fun challenge throwing over a creek from one hilltop to another.
Cons: Cages are a bit outdated and some tees are cracked.

Nostalgic but Easy
Pros: This course was designed by Steady Ed Headrick the Father of Disc Golf. Great place to learn or take your family. Most people play par 3 for every hole. If you are a well seasoned player you can go here to show others how much you rock.
Cons: This course is heavily played. At 3:00pm on a weekday you can count on all of the high school kids. From 5:30pm to Dusk on a weekday you can count on everyone with a 9 to 5 job. There are no shot corridors to create challenge but there are some well placed trees that occasional force a curving throw. I have learned to use my approach putter for most of the holes now.
Other Thoughts: Play this course for aces, because all the distances are reasonable. I've aced about half the holes in my lifetime and had about 5 or 6 that hit chains and bounced out. On a typical trip you will normally hear someone yell on another hole you can't see and can tell that they must have aced or come close. Most people play this course because it just brings back good memories. But If your an advanced player from out of town I don't know that I would go here unless I was doing the Steady Ed Headrick Disc Golf Tour or something like that.

Pros: Very nicely kept. A good amount of elevation change over creek beds. Nice concrete tee pads. A few blind shots. Mostly short holes a few medium, plenty of ace chances. Most fairways are open but there are plenty of of trees through the course. Fairways are grassy rough is thick wooded areas. There is a nature center by parking where you can get score cards. Weekly doubles event is fun.
Cons: Flow can be a bit confusing and blind shots are very confusing since hole are close together be sure to walk up the fairway the first time you play to see the hole you are shooting for.

My home course
Pros: - Well-conditioned. All tees and baskets look new (though updated tee signs would be appreciated). Brush and weeds are never a problem.
- Excellent beginner/intermediate course. Straight shots are nearly always rewarded, but creative shotmaking will also shave strokes off your score.
- Good natural beauty. Several holes play over creeks with significant elevation change. Just over the hill by the nature center, you are met with a spectacular view of the Ohio.
Best in the area. On this side of the city, its at least a 30 minute drive to a high-caliber course (Mt. Airy, Lincoln Ridge, Idlewild).
Cons: - Too confined. Some of the holes might as well share fairways.
- Too short for experienced players. All 18 of these holes are aceable. A pro might only need to break out his driver once on this course.
- Too crowded. As much as I like playing with other people on the course, this course will often draw young children who are easily frustrated by the game.
Other Thoughts: As most people will not be making long distance trips for this course, the charge to enter the park is negligable, and locals should go ahead and get a county parks pass. Overall, slightly above average.

Woodland Mound DGC
Pros: Good course. Mach 5 baskets are in good condition. Asphalt teepads. Mix of open and wooded holes and short holes. Lots of parking near Tee 1. Discs at nature center. Heavily played on weekends. Lots of people to play with. Restrooms near nature center. Trash cans throughout the course.
Cons: Moves slow. Pay to play (Unless you have yearly park pass). No teesigns. Kind of just guessing. Most holes a very short. Bunched together. Has a good chance of hitting someone or losing a disc.
Other Thoughts: My first course. Few other courses in the area so go play those too. Short, lightly wooded 18 hole course, installed in 80's. Heavily played. Discs available in nature center. Hamilton County park pass ($) required.
