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.

Pros: A fun course that provides a challenge for both beginners and pros.
The first 6 holes, then holes 10 and 18 are all completely in an open field. These can be fairly easy or fairly difficult , depending on the wind.
The holes in the woods are such blast. They challenge you to utilize different types of shot.
One of the coolest things about this course is when the RC planes are flying by in the next field.
This is a great course if you want to get in a couple rounds of 18 in a short time.
Cons: The problem with this course is that the 8 holes in the field tend to be very bland holes to play. They never truly challenge you. When wind comes into play, these hole can becoming very annoying because the wind on this course can be unpredictable.
Hole 16 does not have a guide.
Other Thoughts: This is most likely my "home course," even though I do not the closest to it, but it since it so quick to play, I can usually play two times.

I think it is very good course, but because it lacks the variety of other courses nearby, like Monroe, so it is not a truly excellent course.

Pros: Great mix of open long drives and tight wooded drives.

This is a great course for beginners and advanced players alike. Provides challenges needed for growth

Sits right next to an RC air field.
Cons: Hole #2 needs to be a Par 2 instead of a Par 3
Other Thoughts: This would be considered my "home field." I play this course more than any other, and I love it.

Pros: - Great mix of open and wooded holes. The open holes are all a ton of fun, and despite that they are all basically in a flat open field, they each managed to be unique. The small trees and shallow hills on the open holes provided just enough in the way of obstacles to make things really fun. The wooded holes were also great. All of the fairways were tight, but still very fair.
- The park itself was quite nice (though seemed to be 90% DG course).
- Despite that I played on a day with amazing weather, the park was not crowded (there were only two other people there while I was).
Cons: - Open holes might feel repetitive for some people (but did not for me).
- Some might argue that the pars are not really accurate. Ex: Hole 18 is 600 ft and a par 6. This is probably a little high. Par 4, maybe 5 would be more appropriate.

Pros: decent 18 hole course past Eagle Ridge before mason...always well mowed, half in fields, half in woods.
Cons: the wooded holes can be a doozy, some may not like the mulch in the woods.
Other Thoughts: 18 is a long hole, but i love coming here, the wooded ones are real creative.

Pros: Turtlecreek DGC is a great place to get in a round with variety (woods and open fields) AND to watch (and hear) large remote control airplanes and frequent skydivers (well...hopefully you don't hear them...that might indicate a disaster in the making). It's kind of a game of flying discs and an airshow rolled into one.
The course is well-maintained despite limited trash receptacles, and features eight open field shots that can be influenced by the frequent breezes and the few planted trees and hillocks. It has ten wooded holes that are not overly tight, but the well-defined lines can sometimes be challenging for the rec to intermediate player. A creek comes into play on a couple of holes (or more, if you do what I did last time out, and kick off a tree deep into the woods!)
Signature holes are probably the long S-bend #11 and the open 600 foot #18 (the only two holes I've yet to par, after five rounds here).
Baskets are decent, and the open tees are asphalt, while the wooded tees are flypads. The flow and design are fairly straightforward with minimal hiking between one basket and the next tee. There are usually good tee signs, and next tee signs, when needed.
The park has bathrooms, water fountains, a small kiddie play area, a walking path, and a couple of shelters, but I've not seen much other activity here besides the 'air show' and the disc golf, so it's good for the latter.
Cons: There are only a few benches on the course, which is mostly flat (though most players enjoy a variety of elevation, a relatively flat course could be a plus for older knees!).
Though there is a practice basket, the very few alternate teepads and baskets don't seem to be used much.
Well north of Lebanon, Ohio, this course is situated pretty far out from major population centers (however, it's still within a 45 minute drive for Cincinnati and Dayton players).
Other Thoughts: Just attended the Turtlecreek Open yesterday, and on a calm day, the 980 to 1020 rated players shot in the mid to upper 40's for 18 holes here, and those (ahem) who are more (shall we say) 'humble' (like me) were satisfied with 60 or better. So the course accomplishes what decent courses do: separate the wheat from the chaff. Wait..I'm chaff?!

Pros: Nice tee pads. When in the open, the pads are concrete. When in the woods, the pads are rubber.

Decent signage, showing distance and line to the pin.

Navigation is a snap. The course flows smoothly and quickly.

Most likey, you will find something you like here (and probably something you don't)
Cons: This is a course of extremes. The first 6 holes are wide open and flat. I mean WIDE OPEN and FLAT. Very plain. Then you toss one into the woods and the majority of the back nine is ridiculously tight. I mean TIGHT. These extremes are so polarizing that I found myself wanting something in between.

Expect the course to be busy. There is a hiking trail that runs along with the course. There was plenty of traffic when I played.
Other Thoughts: Truly a hot and cold course. Personally, I much prefered the wooded holes. They were unforgiving, but most of them had defined fairways. These holes provide the only real challenge on the course. I read a couple reviews that stated there were alot of "luck" holes back here. I can see that argument but IMO they were mostly fair.

The park itself is well taken care of and trimmed tight. It was lush and green for this time of year.

Not a bad course by any means. It's worth a stop if your near by.

Pros: Very flat
Very Clean
Decent range of throw options
Cons: Very Flat
The course seem to be really tight with not much room between fairways
Other Thoughts: Decent course over all, but it does get a little boring after a few times of playing. Very clean and well maintained though. If its slightly windy where you are around the Lebanon, then its probably really windy on the front 9. It is a wide open field and the wind has nothing to break it for the entire front 9. It does get hard to judge the distance shots some times.
