Not Bad for a Road Trip
Pros: Well maintained, very spacious, good mix of challenging holes and easier ones, no water hazards!
Cons: Some of the holes seem repetitive, a little hard to navigate the course as there is no map on the park property and no arrows/markers to let you know where the next tee is
Other Thoughts: We stopped by Shoaff park on the way back to Toledo, OH from Fishers, IN. This was the second course we played for the day, and one of the better courses we have been to. There was a few cross country teams practicing in the park, so we had to wait for them to cross a few times, but other than that, the course itself was very nice. It would be pretty great if they painted some arrows or at least put up a map though, we ended up starting on hole 16 and then finding our way to each hole, but it would have been nice to know where to go!
Pros: Very well maintained
Along a beautiful golf course
Easy to navigate
Concrete Tee Boxes
Cons: No trash cans
Hole Signs need redone - very hard to read
Lots of people and car traffic around course
Not real difficult, few mature trees

Wide Open Spaces
Pros: Well maintained. The grass isn't too tall. The course makes use of what it has very well. The lines of trees cover baskets and create interesting shots. A few holes have mandos which are a nice addition. The baskets are old, but do not show much wear outside of the faded numbers on top of the baskets.
Cons: Very popular park for non-disc golfers. We had a few dog walkers interrupt our game. There is also a steady stream of cars along the left side of a couple of holes. Be mindful. The course doesn't flow very well either. The tee pads are highly visible and marked, but knowing where to go next is tricky. The biggest problem to a person first playing this course is that hole one starts in the center of the park. The person I played with says he usually starts at #15 so he finishes by the parking lot. The signs do not lead to the closest lot.
Other Thoughts: I finished this course with a local. He told me that all of the trees with an orange dot will soon be removed. When this happens, they may have to move some hole locations to keep it interesting. There were a couple holes where the only tree that was in play is going to be removed.

Pros: Shoaff park is an excellent course to introduce new players to the exciting world of disc golf. This course has few OB and no water hazards. The front 9 is well shaded with mature growth trees and makes use of this park's small rolling hills. Over the past few years, several of the baskets have been relocated to provide more challenge.
Cons: In the middle of the day during the summer months, the back 9 is almost unplayable due to lack of shade. With a lot of rainfall, some of the shaded areas can stay swampy and muddy for weeks. This course can be busy. There are a lot of non-players in the vicinity.
Other Thoughts: This course could use some TLC. Most of the signs are broken or unreadable. Some of the sign didn't seem to have been updated after the last time they moved the baskets. The grounds are well kept, which makes locating your discs very easy.

Pros: Easy to play. Very clean. Tees are fairly good. Easy to get to know the course. Great for beginners.
Cons: Some tee's signs have fallen. Front 9 is more through the trees and back 9 is more in the open.
Other Thoughts: Need more OB holes and needs to be more difficult. This course is great for people just starting out and want to get better at the sport

Nice, Casual Round
Pros: Nice tees, signage, and holes. In the middle of a park, so it is well maintained. Holes are placed in creative places in relation to the natural surroundings. Each hole is different and requires a variety of shots.
Front 9 and Back 9 are like playing 2 different courses: front is wooded with zero undergrowth and the back is fairly open with sparse trees.
Cons: Really there are not many. A couple holes are confusing as to where to walk to the next tee (4 to 5, 12 to 13). The front 9 are a little short. If you are looking for an intense, skill-shot course, this is not the one you want. Every hole has a possibility of drive-putting it. Watch out for the kids at the playground on #5 - not a huge deal though.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course. But it is not for advanced players looking for a challenge. It is very good for honing skills and using different shots for other players. I have played it several times, but I have not deuced every hole . . . yet.
It's tough for me to rate it higher than 3.5 because of it's ease of play even though the quality of the course drives the score higher.
