Decent, has potential
• Brand new DISCatcher baskets
• Nice, clean park & course
• Relatively easy to navigate for first-timers
• Secluded for the most part from other park activities
• Tee signs are *very* inaccurate. The distances are all over the place and the maps are very generic, almost not even worth having them.
• Hole #8 would have been a cool hole if I knew where it was.
• Some holes are a bit confusing, and a bit of overlap on the drives.
• Tees are too short/small, but better than nothing I suppose.
Other Thoughts: This course has potential. If it was a full 18 with some technical holes on the back nine, it could be a cool course.
I'd say if you are in the area or it's on the way to another local course, it's worth a round. But as far as a specific visit to play, it's nothing special.

Please add the final 9!
Pros: -shiny innova disc catcher baskets
-concrete tee pads
-no long walks between tees
-on the way to massillon and arboretum dgc's
-hole #9 ends at hole one so multiple rounds are easy to do
-good sings direct you to tee one from park entrance
-easy to find, nice park with everything you could need
Cons: -only 9 holes (could easily fit 18 and i hope they do)
-signs are a good thought but wrong distances and even wrong layouts
-pricker bushes all over the place (don't wear shorts!)
-numbers on baskets are very small/hard to see
-not very difficult (compared to medina, massillon, wooster and other courses in the area)
-windy (i hate that)
Other Thoughts: almost aced hole #8 from #7's teepad, which i didn't realize until i got up to my disc that i was shooting at the wrong basket. this sort of thing is probably common for first timers here as on many holes you can see baskets which are not the proper ones.
if 9 more holes are added i think this course would get another star, the potential is def there. I would suggest making alternate pin positions to increase the difficulty.
overall, a reasonable pit stop to warm up before heading to massillon or arboretum

Pros: Good course in terms of variety. 8 was a great hole, a true par 4 and one that makes you want to come back. Lots of little trees add challenge to a relatively open course and make the course play longer than the distance. I took a first timer to the course and before we'd finished the first round he said "can we play another one?" For whatever that's worth. I enjoyed it as well, and I've been playing for awhile.
The park itself looks pretty awesome with good amenities. There were trash cans at every hole and the course was clean and look well kept up. A good course to bring the whole family to.
Cons: Tee pads were pretty small. It didn't affect me that much, but on some of the longer holes I was definitely thinking about it. Tee signs distances almost made things worse than not having them there at all. There are several holes that switch back and not knowing the course and knowing that the distances were inaccurate made it a little frustrating. A couple of times we threw at one basket and then figured out where we were actually supposed to be throwing. Some of the fairways and bakets/tees are too close together. It didn't matter on a day like today, but when the course gets more popular there's defiintely going to be issues especially with 9's basket and 1's tee.
Other Thoughts: I know it's a new course so I'm giving my judgement of it with that in mind. It will get better. I can't wait til its 18 and some of the trees have grown in and hopefully the tee signs will get reworked.

Pros: Course has it's own little area, very little traffic from other park users.
Cons: Some holes still have terrible distance/par's listed.
Park Rangers there are complete morons and watch you like you've commited some sort of crime for using the park.
Other Thoughts: Fire those park worker dolts.

Concrete Tees are IN!!
Pros: Course is starting to take shape. Signs and tees have been moved to correct the distance. Concrete tees were added on 7/18.
Cons: Still only 9 holes but they are planning on adding the additional 9 when they are completed with the first 9. Still TOO many bees!

NEW TEES SIGNS NOW !!!
Pros: NEW tees signs now !!! sweet new deep baskets, in a very nice park, great play area for the kids.a great course for tomahawks because most of the holes are fairly short + its such a new course not many people know about it.
Cons: only 9 holes - tee signs don't fell quite properly placed - marshy field with bee's all over the damn place - beware of a sheriff on a 4 wheeler i guess you cant hang you hoodie on the tee sign while you throw. BEWARE OF BEE'S, TICS!!!
Other Thoughts: needs A ton of work but i can see a nice course in the future the [very long future]

Where are the tees
Pros: The baskets are top notch. Nice to see some really nice baskets around town now.
Cons: Well after getting there and walking for 2 hours just to figure out where in the world the tees were. I found out they were trash cans that were numbered. Also the baskets are not numbered so you have to kind of pick one you think it maybe. Also There is a few holes that just cross one another. Making it possible if it gets busy. To hit another golfer. Not very good placement.
Other Thoughts: This look to be a work in progress. I will revisit to see if any progress was made.

Still not finished
Pros: There are baskets..lol. Nice new tee signs recently added. By the time summer roles around and everything grows in, this might just be a real difficult technical course.
Cons: No tees not finished ...Lots of obstacles . Can be very muddy and swampy in places. fairways criss cross. Who ever did the measurements on this course needs to do it over.
Other Thoughts: upon recent visit to this course i found it to be increasingly difficult. High grass and very limited fairway room make drive placement a must!

Needs mowing badly
First played this course Dec 2008, most recently in Aug 2009.
Beautiful new double chain DISCatcher baskets. Baskets have (small) numbers on them to help navigation. Course has some gradual elevation changes from tee to basket, but no significant hills. Big blue trash cans on every tee make the tees easy to find.
The course is in an isolated part of the park that should be free of interference from most other park activities with the exception of the walking trail. As you enter the park there are multiple signs guiding you to the disc golf course.
There is no official course map. Heavily favors LHBH throwers. Poison ivy, some very close to baskets. Tee #1 is less than 20' from basket #9: a big safety hazard. Tee pads are undersized at only 3' by 6'. Tee signs look nice but most of the distances are wrong (some very wrong) and the layout maps aren't right on some either. The fairway of #3 goes through a drainage ditch that is a mud pit and forces you to walk out of your way, i.e. back up #2's fairway, to get to the basket. #4's throws will likely end up on #5's fairway or #5's tee pad, more safety issues.
While there are paths mowed from tee to basket, at only 10-12' wide you can hardly call them fairways. Once you're off that path the rough is at least 2' high making it really tough to find just about every thrown disc. This is an awful Summer course when the foliage is fully green. I spent way too much time looking for discs.
The first time I played was a snowy day that was zero degrees (F) with the wind, which was blowing 24mph and gusting 34mph. I shot a 30 for a nine hole layout that was marked with temp flags. That layout didn't end up being the completely correct layout once I saw the design map. At the time there were no tee pads or signs, so I had high hopes for what this course might become.
The temp #8 was a really cool ~500 ft shot on a downhill slope with a basket moderately guarded by trees.
The official #8 is a ridiculous hole that invites a 222' perfectly straight shot to a 10' wide gap atop a hill to a landing zone probably 15' in diameter. From there you have a 412' downhill shot to a mostly blind basket position tucked away in the trees.
The temp course I saw in the winter had nice potential, but after seeing what they did with undersized tee pads, incorrect tee signs, and horrible rough in the Summer I'm only bumping my rating from 1.0 to 1.5 stars. This course was not fun to play in the summer, I spent far more time looking for my discs than I did throwing them. I've got no desire to go back when the course is green.

Work in Progress
Pros: Seems like a great location and property, but this course is not complete. Couldn't figure out where the tee boxes were for each hole. I am sure that the more people get involved that this could be a really cool course. We work close to this one, so we will check it out frequently and make updates as they happen.So far seems to have mostly short holes. Some open and some protected by trees and bushes.
Cons: Seems to still be a work in progress.
Other Thoughts: Did not know about this course, so it was a pleasant surprise. Hope they continue to improve this one. Very cool property in Green, close to the Akron-Canton Airport.
