Pros: 9 hole course right on UC campus. I know for the Disc golf community, its not the greatest, but it does show this city's love for disc golf to new UC students who may not ever heard of it. Or may know of the sport but stuck on campus
Cons: Its poor maintained, labeled.
Not worth playing, unless you have no alternative.
Other Thoughts: The City could do so much more with the "on campus" Disc golf course design. Burnet is great example of how it COULD be great, but isn't

Pros: Once a feature course adjacent to the University of Cincinnati campus, Burnet Woods DGC is being refurbished, resurrected and someday soon (?) expanded in the hopes that it can come back to its former glory. For now, it's a decently maintained nine hole course with tee posts and natural tees, and a decent mix of shots and use of elevation.

It starts with a 295' slight downhill opener where you want to control your distance to avoid getting in the thick bushes just a few feet past the basket. Then you come back up by the sidewalk and have to shape a 460 footer that bends left up a valley lane between tree lines. The next four holes work around the best place for you to park, and around a pavilion and play area that stays fairly safely out of the lines of flight. The short 7th and 8th holes set you up for a challenging (290') hyzer (rhbh) finish through a stand of mature park trees.

So this small course has a decent amount of variety and challenge for the recreational to intermediate player, and it is located in the heart of the city, only a few miles from the Mt. Airy course, so Burnet can serve as a nice little warm-up if you're headed there.
Cons: The current design has some flow issues due to the restrictions of the space. If you refer to the map, you'll see the best place to park is such that you'll likely want to start on hole #5, and finish on #4...and there are some long walks between holes.

The course needs updated signage and/or indications of where to go for the next hole.

The bushes and rough tend to get right up next to your flight paths and the baskets. The thistles and thorny plants are a real pain, and the plants can get so thick in the summer, you might stand nearly on top of your disc and have to look for ten minutes to find it.

There are currently only tee posts and dirt tee boxes (which are getting to be ankle risks, with rutting and rooting going on). There aren't benches or trash cans near the tees.

You want to be aware of parking restrictions and issues when the university is in session. It's a public park, but it's unlikely you'll find a space on the main drive near the first tee at these times. I believe you might even need a permit to park there.
Other Thoughts: There has been an 18 hole redesign in place for at least a year and a half, but the manpower has been going into the upcoming DG course in Goshen, so Burnet's changes are still on the table for a 'near future' project.

Pros: Hope the course can get back in to shape. Could be fun.
Cons: The course needs some good ole TLC. Missing baskets, teesigns, teepads......
Other Thoughts: Hold off on playing this course til the redesign is finished. With Courses like Mt. Airy just 5 min away you should head there instead for right now. Even Surge DGC 9 hole at Cincinnati State is a better option

Pros: Course is close to downtown - and has easy access. Fairly technical course - though mainly aimed toward a beginner. Park is well maintained - and fairly busy.
Cons: Hole 9 damaged in 2006 lightning storm - has not been replaced yet. Holes 3, 6, and 8 were damaged from Hurricane Ike by falling trees. The course is pretty messed up right now - but still playable as an 8 hole course. Natural tees except hole 1.
Other Thoughts: This course has a couple of fun holes - and is definitely potential for some nice aces. Its proximity to Mt. Airy, and Surge make it a must play - it only takes about 40 minutes.
