This is a nice little course located in a small park/campground on the edge of Plain City, OH. The park itself has walking trails, playgrounds, and picnic areas as well as campsites that are available during the summer months (Begins April 1st.)
Hole one is located near the main entrance to the park, across from the playground, and loops through the park back to the entrance. The course itself is definitely a beginner course and would be great for families to spend a day, but intermediate players would even call this one a pitch-n-putt.
While I wouldn't go out of the way to play this one, it might be a good place to camp with the family if you are wanting a place to stay close to Columbus. Glacier Ridge is about 10 minutes away and while not much longer has 18 holes and is a bit more challenging, so playing both with the family or beginner is do-able which adds to the appeal for families.
While I was out there the course was completely empty, but there were a couple of other park users and I did have to wait on them a couple times.Walking trails and roads come into play quite often so you do have to be on the lookout and wait for others to clear before throwing. Another problem is two baskets seem to be missing (7 & 8). I don't know if this is a temporary thing or what, but I know right now there are only seven baskets and nine tee signs. While its not really a huge deal, as it wasn't anything amazing to begin with and you could easily just play two of the holes twice, it is a bit of a downside to the already small course.

A plain course in a plain flat plain
Pros: NOTE: I rated this course according to how good it is for a Red level player.
Green grass and some nice old growth trees. Double chain DISCatcher baskets. I can't think of much else.
Cons: -Safety issues on 6 of 9 holes. Mix lots of safety issues with a busy multi-use park and a course best suited for newer players and you've got a recipe for lots of problems. The picture of the hole 9 fairway on DGCR tells you a lot. You'll see a car in the fairway, a bench you have to throw over, and some people who probably weren't disc golfers.
-The course is totally flat; there's no elevation change on any hole!
-There's very little length variety; all holes are 190-284 ft. (1 of 190/ 8 of 200-284.)
-The tees are dirt and grass and some are uneven.
-Very few amenities. No map, score cards, practice basket...
Course Level = Red (most suitable for Juniors and Intermediate players rated 825-875)
This course OK for Red level players, but it won't inspire them. Those who don't far-- new players, Juniors, some women-- might find it a good place to learn the game before moving on elsewhere. All but the shortest throwing adult males can safely skip this course.
