Pros: A fairly challenging short technical course. There is some good use of elavation change. Double cement pads is nice. It was cool to play a course the Steady Ed originally designed even if only 9 of the original holes remain. While its not in the woods the course is pretty tight.
Cons: Nothing major, I guess if it had been a double loop that would have been nice. No water or bathrooms that I saw on site.
Other Thoughts: Played this during roscoes revenge and it was really a great tourney put on by the Jenkins family.

Course that makes you think
Pros: Great course to work on your mental game. Most holes have several challenging features, from water, trees, elevation changes, blind holes and of course the walking path. New baskets are great, as well as some of the new locations. Cool to hear the history of this course. Layout lived up to expectations. Very challenging, got to use a lot of different shots to get out of trouble. Spray painted directional arrows were appreciated. Especially to find hole #10.
Cons: The lack of good signs, but that could be corrected. Must be careful of the other park users, joggers, dog walkers, etc. All seem to be very aware of the fast flying objects!
Other Thoughts: Only visits have been with few to no leaves on the trees. I'm sure summer could be brutal.

Great course with plenty of fun holes
10 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: Lots of fun, clever holes, throwing uphill and downhill, through the woods and next to streams.
Good mix of challenges and terrains, and great scenery. Course is nice and secluded.
Long, concrete tee pads in good shape.
Cons: Course was under reconstruction last time I played (2007), so some of the holes were moved and it wasn't clear how to follow the course. Might be better by now.
Some of the tee signs are badly vandalized.
The informal trail to the back nine is almost impossible to find -- head past the basket and follow the trail along the creek.
Course entrance can be tricky to find your first time out.
Other Thoughts: The course is usually not very busy. Some areas are multi-use in the park, but nothing where your throws are around other park-goers.
There's a porta-potty near the basket for hole #9, no water fountains, no concessions stands.
Lately (Summer 2008) the local disc golfers have been renovating the course; new baskets are being added. Holes have been moved as well.
Last time I was there the tee signs were not being replaced; some of those have been badly vandalized.
Surprised to see such mediocre ratings, me and my disc golf buddies really like this course and the extra drive to Medina is always worth it to us.

Pros: Nice course winding through a public park. You have holes with elevation, semi open and semi-wooded holes. Good use of baskets near stream. Not to tough but can come into play. With the shorter tee pads you have plenty of birdie opportunities (if you game is going ok), longer tee pads you have to have a good arm for birdies. GREAT use of land available. They used every inch imaginable. I can see shooting a bad score and a good score in the same day. Nice course for a tournament.
