Pros: -Signs for every hole w/par and distance
-Layout is easy to follow for first timers
-Great for beginners
-Solid variety of hole types (doglegs, elevation changes, etc.)
-Three practice pins at the start
-Many tee boxes have benches and/or trash cans
-Well maintained
-Scorecards, bathrooms, and water fountains are all available
Cons: -Concrete "greens"
-Very short for experience players
-It's a $1.50 per round (no one has been at the booth this summer, but I still pay)
-Can get crowded
Other Thoughts: Let me start by saying that this is one of my favorite courses that I've played around the central Ohio area and I usually play here once or twice a week.

-It is a short course and for being entirely in the woods it is not overly narrow, so a player with more experience might not find it challenging enough. A couple holes are a little to simplistic, but most have some sort of bend, elevation change, or an obstacle to go around.
-There is a booth for a attendant, although no one has been there this summer, when they get a new attendant they will probably sells and rents discs again.
-With the recent storms in the area all woodied courses around central Ohio have taken some heavy damage, but this course has been cleaned up very well.
-If it wasnt for the concrete greens, which can cause a nice tee or approach to skip off, large crowds, and $1.50 a round I would have given this a 5 rating.

If you have a friend and you want to introduce them to disc this is a great course to do it, it was what got me hooked.

- Good start for learning how to drive with shorter holes
- Small pro shop on site, the guys that work there are great and know everything about the course.
-Shelter on site if you run into bad weather.
-Friendly atmosphere, while there are a lot of first-timers a lot of the locals are extremely friendly.
-Can get a quick 45-minute round in on a good day
-Three practice holes, one DISCatcher Pro and two Mach 3s (what is used for the whole course). One Mach 3 has stones for an "Around 9" putting game.
Cons: - $1.50 per round, and $4.50. I recommend avoiding the $4.50 "all day" charge because you think you're going to play more than 4 rounds, but you probably won't.
- Bad course for those who rely on their strong arms, you could spend a while looking if you overshoot the 150-200 ft. holes.
-A little bit on the short side, but as mentioned before this is a more of a beginner- friendly course
Other Thoughts: Although Blendon Woods is rather short, it is extremely well kept and is a great course for fine-tuning your short game and getting your friends into DG. I would definitely bring people here before Brent Hambrick.
