Pros: The Pastime Park nine hole course in Plain City, Ohio, has holes ranging from 190 to 284 feet in length, with massive old trees to force some line decisions off the grass tees. With good hole signage and Innova DisCatcher baskets, the essential elements for a basic course are in place. Using the driveways, paths, fences & buildings to define OB gives the casual to Intermediate disc golfer a chance to work on some precision. The design uses the limited spaces available fairly well for what they were given.
Cons: However, the fact that the course plays in the flat, camper hookup area of the fairgrounds/park means that there will be a lot of non-disc golfers in range when events are going on here. So the disc golfer needs to be extra cautious at such times. The holes had to be situated as best they could where throws could be made safely, so there are sometimes some long walks from basket to next tee, but there are no 'next tee' signs. I added an aerial schematic map you might want to take with you the first time.

The holes are all somewhat similar in range and in the fact that they are flat, with 2-3 obstacles to consider. None truly stand out as 'memorable'. And trying to park hole 6 with a rhbh hyzer puts the 7th tee area well within accident range (see map). Finally, the second basket was missing a (or had a loose) ring, so half of its chains were just hanging there.
Other Thoughts: It was interesting to note that the tee signs all had a line of flight drawn, with most of them fading to the right on approach, so I wanted to hazard a guess that the designer is either rhfh or lhbh. Just a fun guess, though (which might help in your decision whether a course like this is something you'd want to visit). If this park has an event, or if Pastime Park isn't your cup of tea, there are two other courses nearby, depending on which way you feel like shifting your game: down for the shortie (Balgriffen) over in Dublin, or up for the lengthier (from the long tees) 18 hole course just north (Glacier Ridge).

Pros: -nice baskets
-in small secluded park
-great for beginners
-no wait to throw
-easy to navigate
-signs for every hole
-short course makes for a quick round
Cons: -too short for anyone aside from beginners
-signs need some maintenance
-a couple baskets too close to buildings
-has flyways that cross walking paths and near roads
-didnt see any trash cans or restrooms
-dirt tees forming ruts in them

Other Thoughts: it was ok, i would think it would be nice to have if you lived very close to the course, but nothing to go out of your way for. might be back if i'm in the area but i will likely not go out of my way to get back to this course since there are so many other great ones in the area

Pros: -Nice baskets
-Nice park
-Low traffic (if you time it right)
-Good signage ++
Cons: - Layout is a little rough
- Course location intermixes with high traffic park areas.
- Little variation
Other Thoughts: Items to note that I dont necessarily consider cons but many players will probably dislike:
-short course
-poorly marked natural tees
-9 hole

This is another situation of where the city decided to put in the course as a draw for the park. Honestly, the main problem is that the course plays pretty much entirely over top of regularly used traffic areas of the park. Instead of the park building a DG course, they dropped in a course on top of the park. Like the other reviewer stated, there are picnic tables and such layed out in fairways.

I played around lunchtime on a Friday in May. Schools are still in session and the park was empty. In that case it was a very relaxing easy round or two of DG practice. During the summer when families are out all hours of the day and/or weekends will be a totally different story.

I enjoyed my round but proper timing is key to a unobstructed round.
