Pros: -Well maintained
-Concrete tee pads
-Maps on every hole
-Lots of benches and trash cans
-In the woods which is nice on a hot day
Cons: -Holes are short, but there are a few long ones.
-Not a lot of shot varieties
-Good practice course and for beginners
-$1.50 to play but is free right now
Other Thoughts: I like to play this course when I play hoover because it is close and you can play a quick round and have time to play several courses in a day. You could use your putter and mid-range throughout the course if you are experienced.

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.

 Short, but fun

Pros: *Well groomed
*Nice use of space
*Lots of trash cans and benches
*Good variety of technical shots needed
Cons: *Really shouldn't be any par 4's
*Not fond of the asphalt "greens" surrounding baskets
Other Thoughts: Even though I've only been playing a little over a year, I thought this course was one of the nicest I've played. The holes are well-layed out and there is no guesswork wondering where the next tee pad is. Most of the holes are surrounded by a nice clearing so even if the fairway is a little tight, you are rewarded at the end of the hole with a clear line of sight for your putt. This is a good alternative to some of the more open courses in the area as all of the holes are wooded. Experienced players will not need more than a mid-range and putter. All in all, a nice course for a quick round. Well worth the $1.50 per round.

 Good Exec Course

Pros: Very well kept and very easy to follow the course. Great to work on your short game.
Cons: Should not be a single par 4 on this course. You can play this course with only a putter.
Other Thoughts: Plays very quick if you want to stop in on your lunch break. Tucked back and out of the way of the rest of the park so you don't have to worry about random people.

 Fun little course

Pros: This is a beautiful park with a LOT to do other than disc golf. Multiple shelters/grilling areas, walking trails, and playgrounds. Bring the whole family!

That said, NONE of the other activities interfere with the disc golf course. All you ever see on the course are other disc golfers.

The course itself is made for working on accuracy. I've lost a few discs here trying to pull off a miracle shot because I didn't stay on the fairway. Choose your lines and hit them, and you'll score well here. Leave the drivers at home -- the only time I ever got in trouble was when I pulled a driver out to see if I could park a hole with a shot I don't normally throw.
Cons: Short. This doesn't bother me most of the time, but it's short and people who play it like to throw drivers on 200 ft. holes. You'll find discs flying everywhere, so keep your head up and pay attention.

Narrow. I don't really consider this a con, but some might. If you don't throw it straight, you will be hating life on this course. But it will make you improve your game, and learn to love the array of mids and putters you have (courses like this are the reason I carry five mids and three putters).

Crowded. People love this place, and with good reason. That means it gets used a LOT. You will end up playing through, or letting others play through, a lot.

"Par." I have no idea why any hole on this course is a par 4. I feel guilty carding a "birdie" when I make a 3 on any hole on this course. Play them all as par 3s.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course, pure and simple. The challenge is here if you look for it. Big arms can use a putter or two (or three) and challenge themselves. Rec players with even a little experience can work on their midrange game.

 Great Beginner Coure

Pros: Nice, long tee pads and open fairways. The layout was VERY easy to follow. And even though it is pay-to-play, a buck-fifty is a bargain, and at 4.50 all day, can't rally be beat.

The layout, though super short, is fun and pin-placement is solid. I didn't see any holes I'd consider 'dumb'.

This is a great beginner course with the short, relatively wide fairways. It's an easy course for beginners to master.
Cons: If you play much better than a good rec player, you'll get bored quickly. Plus the course with very busy and plays slow with young, beginning player
Other Thoughts: I think I through my putter 95% of the time and only brought out a beat up Roc on a couple of shots. If you're looking to work on your long game, it's not here. Bring a putter and practice your upshots.

Pros: This course is always fun.
Yeah, the holes are all pretty short, but they are interesting and give you a good time working at your mid range game.
Plenty of doglegs, shots through the trees, elevation changes, etc.
If you are an experienced player, it affords the opportunity to shoot for some aces or work on technique.
The woods are really nice, and the water fountain at hole 9 or 10 is a welcome amenity.
I've taken my wife to play here a bunch, and she a;ways gets a great confidence boost from hitting many pars and near birds.
As such, this is a fabulous course for someone you're introducing to disc golf, but will still challenge you, too.
Cons: When busy, it can bet backed up quick. Hang out at the practice basket and wait for it to clear out a bit and you're usually good. It tends to move along well, though, so not something that should make you avoid the area.
Other Thoughts: Only a couple of miles from the Hambick course, so its a no brainer to hit this one up as a warm up round once in awhile! In a lot of ways, I find this course more fun and interesting than Hambick anyway. Don't forget! Its pay to play... $1.50 a round or $5 all day.

Pros: -Good Tee Pads and baskets
-Accurate Tee Signs
-3 different practice baskets
-Very well maintained
-Good mix of left to right, right to left shots
-Good for beginners
Cons: -I'm not a fan of the 10 foot diameter concrete "green" around the baskets
-Every hole is short, know that coming in
-Can get very crowded at times, alot of times with people that don't know how to play
-Costs $1.50
Other Thoughts: All in all I really like Blendon Woods. It's not a distance course but pretty technical and you can really work on your form at this course. If you've not played before or you are bringing someone relatively new with you it's a very good course for that.

Pros: Bench and trashcan at almost every hole. Good use of nature holes. Restrooms near the entrance of the course with a little booth to rent or buy discs from.
Cons: You have to pay 1.50 for a round 4.50 to play all day. This course can be the most crowded in Ohio due to it's small size most of there par 4s are now really par 3s so be aware. This course is really jam packed on the weekends. This is a short course so if your an advanced or pro player you might find yourself a little bored.
Other Thoughts: The very first course I ever played great for teaching newbies.
