After playing hole 1, which from a quick look at the map has a lake right behind the basket, you should probably be prepared to have water in play. I was pretty awful at writing reviews when I started off. I've never played this course (only 1 for me in OH), but I think it IS overly negative judging by the overall rating. While not a fan of the review, I will give him credit for EXPLAINING his dislike for the course. This is better than so many other 3 sentence reviews giving out 1's. At least he has potential to write other, more thought out reviews. I feel like reviewing courses on, you know, Disc Golf Course Review is a dying art form. Shout out to Wellsbranch250 for doing right though. Last I checked we are both at 413 played

How about a bunch of thumb downs from course homers on a perfectly good review?

Been there done that lol

Unfortunately it'll probably be May before I get any new courses. Want to play Harmony Bends this summer. Also would like to finally play Mont Du Lac.

Been close to a decade since I played Gordon Holton, but it was more than solid. I thought it earned every bit of 3.75.

Gotta give Brutus props for flagging reviews that seem highly questionable.

I'm more frustrated by the three sentence reviews giving out 5's

Ehh... that's nothing. I played a tourney at Englewood MetroPark in Dayton Ohio once the same day as the Dayton International Airshow. That course is like 2mi from the airport and directly in the flight path of their big runway. That whole day was just a cluster**** of loud jets, helicopters and stunt planes. During one stretch, there was an F-22 Raptor that kept flying over the course. It was so loud, you couldn't hear your own thoughts, lol.

Awful review that doesn't reflect reality. One of my favorites in the area, it's a bit of a drive but I try to play it at least once a month. The original 20 holes are solid, the extra 7 are a work in progress that never really progressed much. When the USWDGC was there a few years ago, the women complained and after the first round, those holes weren't used again. Heavy rains in the spring did have a negative impact on the course, but several folks worked hard to clean it up. The person who posted that review should be ashamed of themselves.
