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.

Good to learn on, score well
Pros: This is a good course to learn on. The park surroundings are wooded, but almost all the holes have a relatively wide landing area - very few tight gaps to shoot through. The holes across the creek - 10, 12 and 13 especially, are among the best. Very easy to find each tee and hole - if you catch this course on a light day, it's the quickest 18 I've come across. You can often see families on the course. This is where my 12-year-old son fell in love with the sport.
Cons: Long has taken on a new meaning. This is a short course - all sorts of pars are marked on the tees, but it makes most sense to play everything as a par 3. Experts would be mad about making more than two on most of the holes. No multiple tee options, so there's no way to increase the challenge. No real doglegs. There's no significant uphills (not that I mind too much) and there's only one real downhill shot. The course is too compact to make much use of elevation changes. #9 is one of the shortest holes I've seen on a regulation 18 hole design. Only 135 feet, with a huge tree to force your approach very low - kind of like having to get through the tunnel in putt-putt. There's often several groups on the course - then again my family contributes to the congestion, and we don't really mind. You will have to wait for people throwing back toward you on the shared/adjacent fairways.
Other Thoughts: Since it's part of the county park system, the only cost is the annual county-wide parking fee - five dollars for a sticker that lets you in to all of the parks. As long as you have decent aim you don't need to choose often between hyzer and anhyzer, or forehand-backhand options. After playing lots of extremely tight woods courses, this plays almost more like a regular golf course - the trees are mainly a factor if your shot drifts off too far.

Woodland Mound Park DGC
Pros: Great 18 holes course with a variety of hole types.
-Baskets - OK condition considering the age of the course.
-Tee Pads - Blacktop tee pads provide for great traction.
-Great variety of lengths. Some short and some long, requiring use of all your different shot techniques.
-Course is not connected with any other parts of the park so you don't have to worry about joggers/walkers.
-Markers - Markers are pretty easy to understand and stated distances seem pretty accurate. It is easy to navigate from hole to hole due to the layout.
-Parking - Parking lot is right across from the first hole and there is plenty.
Cons: -Pay to play. However, the cost is low and it is well worth the extra few bucks to get the yearly pass.
-Park gets very crowded on weekends. Best time to play is during the week, the earlier the better.
Other Thoughts: I have not played this course in years since relocating but I still consider it my "home" course. I played my first disc golf here and it is a great course to learn basic shots.
