Pros: Turtlecreek is an 18 hole course, set in a multi-purpose park in Lebanon, OH, not too far from Cincinnati.

DGA baskets, all in good repair, and caught as well as you need. One pin position per hole.

A mix of rubber and concrete tees. Concrete on the open holes, rubber in the woods. One pin position per hole.

Nice mix of lines once you get in the woods. Tight-ish tunnels, forced straight, left and right shots...very nice. Several of those holes are shorter, but there's a couple that will make you stretch out and throw a good shot. The rough is punishing enough that you don't want to go there, as well. Decently done design in this portion of the course.

Cons: So much open. The first 6 holes are completely open. B-b-boring. Wind will be your biggest enemy here. With the wooded holes being quite fun, it's a bummer that there wasn't more of an attempt to spread out the open holes.

It would be nice if there were multiple tees on a lot of the holes, just to help the replay factor. Same goes for one pin position. There could be many interesting alternatives on many of the holes.

Not much elevation. It's pretty much flat throughout. There is a small creek bed in the woods, but it's nothing that should really interfere with any shots.
Other Thoughts: While Turtle isn't bad, it's not overly great, either. Even with the really nice wooded holes, all I seem to remember about it is the uber-boring first 6 holes and other wide open shots.

With so many other great options in the greater Cincy area, it's hard to recommend a trip here. If you happen to be close, it's worth a stop, but if I'm back in the area, it's not a course I'd be searching out.

 Not bad

Pros: Doesn't seem to be overly crowded, course provides a different variety of shots, fairly easy to navigate.
Cons: Open holes get very boring, you will hate them on windy days. Open holes are close together so pay attention. Wooded holes get muddy. Some of the tee pads could use a make over
Other Thoughts: This isn't a bad course but it didn't blow me away either. Not sure I'd go out of my way to play it a lot. I definitely prefer Sycamore. If not for the first 6 holes being so bland, I'd have no problem bumping my rating to 4 stars.

Good Course

Pros: Good mix of open and wooded holes.
Great mix of distances.
Well kept.
Finish where you start.
Very low non DG traffic.
Cons: Maybe I go at the wrong times, but this is by far the most populated course I frequent. Still, it's never like throw and wait, throw and wait or anything like that.

Accuracy is needed in the woods, as you can definitely lose a disc back there.

Wooded holes can get muddy.
Other Thoughts: Turtlecreek has a mix of asphalt (open) and rubber (wooded) tees. And while the asphalt will hold up better, if you get out there with the morning dew, you will slip and slide on the asphalt tees. Also, the open holes are really suceptible to wind. Plan on a few more mph than what you're feeling in your driveway before you go.

Pros: + Uncrowded with easy parking
+ Very clean and well mowed
+ Water fountain halfway through the course
+ Good mix of distances with some anhyzer shots
+ Great baskets
Cons: - Out of bounds in the woods is thick and easy to get into for new players. Also a lot of poison ivy/oak there too
- Wooded holes look like they are slow to dry out and were quite muddy
- Missing some tee signage for a wood hole
- Bathrooms have a lot of bugs
Other Thoughts: Thoroughly enjoyed the course. The nearby RC airplanes are interesting to watch while taking a break. I took a friend who played there for the first time and she enjoyed the open holes, but not the wooded ones as much. The course is a good drive for me, so I will probably revisit in the fall or spring when throwing out of bounds in the woods won't be too worrisome for me either.

Pros: - Fast Play
- Variety of Holes
- Ends Where it starts
- Challenging for beginner - intermediate
Cons: - Open holes can become flooded
Other Thoughts: Turtlecreek is just an overall good quality course. It offers two holes above 400ft to offer some distance (one is 600) and the wooded holes provide enough distance to challenge precision and well placed lines. This a good course for overall practice. Every time i've played there, there has been little to no interference from park goers. It has nice facilities for water and restrooms. Slowly becoming one of my favorite courses to go play at.

Pros: Great layout with the first half of the course consisting of open holes. The second half of the course is mostly wooded with some narrow areas for a little bit more of a challenge. Great course if you're looking to pull off some Aces. Not usually very busy. Even if you go into the trees they're not too dense, and finding your disc should not be too much of a challenge.
Cons: The tees could use some upkeeping as some of the mats are beginning to slip off of the gravel that they are on. This course has the potential to get very muddy after a descent amount of rain. The front 6 are great for beginners but can be a little too easy for experienced players.
Other Thoughts: Definitely my favorite course so far. I rarely see a lot of people at this course, which makes for a fairly quick play through of all 18 holes. The front 6 make for some pretty easy shots but the difficulty winds up as you enter the woods for 7,8 and 10-17. I love the mixture of wooded and open holes. Hole 18 is a nice hole to really bomb one towards the basket. The tree cover in the wooded section of the course allows the course to stay fairly dry unless there is a large amount of rain. I play this course at least every other week and it just does not get old.

Pros: Turtle creek is a nice disc golf course that gears towards a begginer disc golfer and an intermediate. I find this course simple and elegant at the same time. Turltecreek starts you out with a nice open field and first shot is distance but not bad. The next 5 holes are not big holes and are very acable. But be forwarned if it is windy on the day you play those first 8 holes are tough. Course then goes into the woods and only comes out for 2 holes. The wooded holes are not too difficult if you can control your drive. only one of the wooded holes goes for distance but the others most disc golfers can get their in 1 shot. I have only aced 1 hole at this course and to this day have no idea how. Hole 12 is a big L shape hole that i hit no chains all my buddie and i heard was a big thud.
Cons: When this course is windy you have to pull out a heavy disc. i usually pull out star max. you can get through the wind with that disc. Never played this course wet but it was not bad as a dry course. Be carefull of playing when they are mowing the lawns. They dont care about your discs since they ran over one of mine but luckily did not destroy it.
Other Thoughts: It is a nice little course but i have only played it 3 times and that is due to location. I live in milford and find that this course is too easy and not fun enough to drive 40 minutes to get too. i would rather go to monroe of drive south40 minutes to AJ Jolly. Final hole is the gem in this course. A long 600 foot open hole. getting a 3 on that hole is nice but not easy if you are in the wind.
