A fun hike made even better
Pros: + Almost every hole has elevation change
+ Course was well looked after and in great shape
+ Accuracy needed with few throws being open
+ Lots of risk/reward opportunities
+ Signs and guide posts between holes aide in course navigation
Cons: - Some of the current signs are in bad shape but they are getting replaced, so this con is temporary.
-Park bathroom is, well ... completely doorless. But at least there is a bathroom.
Other Thoughts: I had a great deal of fun playing this course. It challenged me and I'm certain I'm coming back to play here multiple more times.
What made me like this course more than Arboretum-Spiker was I thought the land the course runs through here was much more beautiful. That in combination with it's technical layout made it the kind of course that I want to be at more than once.
Many of the tees offered a couple of lines to hit, though all tight, and when I got a drive to hit those gaps I couldn't help but smile.
The course is very up/down, which for me was pretty new and challenging but very enjoyable. Its a decent hike and if it's just rained bring good shoes and watch your footing. Lots of places to slip and fall if careless.

Pros: A soccer field to practice your throws. This course has hills and trees galore. Have fun twisting a turning through all of it. I am a Bulldog at heart so it hurts me to say Massillon has a mighty fine course.
Cons: The pars on most of the holes seem to be very favorable. If you would just play as if they were all par 3 you would have a more accurate reading on how well you are playing.
Other Thoughts: Well this is a fun and challenging course and since I am trying to lose weight. This course put me to the test.

Pros: Great variety from the front 9 which offer a shorter technical set of holes while the back 9 offer a more open yet challenging 9. Signs are spot on, they show exactly where the pin is within relation to the natural surroundings.
Cons: Can be wet at times which make getting an disobeident disc a problem. Heavily wooded thus make sure to watch where your disc goes otherwise you may not find it.
Other Thoughts: Great course, makes you use all your shots. Uses up and down hill shots perfetly effectively lengthening and shorting holes respectively. Beautiful layout, nice and senic, hole 18 down hill is one of the best I have seen.

Guaranteed good timee
Pros: Some great elevation in a well maintained city park littered with old growth trees. I also found the course easy to follow 90% of the time and that was without a printed map on hand. Also, very nice concrete teepads were available at every hole.
Cons: Tee signs were in rough shape.
Other Thoughts: Lincoln Park made for a really enjoyable and challenging round of disc golf. I wouldn't consider this course heavily wooded but there is certainly no shortage of trees. The first 6 holes play in a park-like setting with some rolling terrain. Then you make your way across the street to play the last 12 holes which is where I feel this park really ups the challenge/fun factor. These holes play mostly on a pretty steep hillside where you'll be throwing up and down the hillside, through and over ravines and of course, contending with the trees mentioned earlier.
Lincoln won't give you much opportunity to throw long bombs and rip your drives due to the placement and abundance of trees but chances are you'll probably be enjoying your round here too much to take notice. I had a lot of fun playing this course and will definitely play here again if I have the opportunity.

A solid course
Technical course with lots of trees. Realistic recreational pars posted on signs. Restrooms. Good course layout, starts & finishes at parking lot. Good elevation changes. Good wildlife views. Great concrete tee pads. Terrain was interesting with some steep drop offs surronding some baskets. Well kept greens and baskets in good condition.
Several posted distances were significantly off the line-of-sight distances, possibly adjusted for elevation, but that didn't seem consistent across all holes. Holes (#16 & 17) down in the ravine can be frought with mosquitos. Some tee signs rusted out and portions unreadable. No course map posted at welcome sign. Poison ivy. Parking lot was dominated by many Sunday morning bicyclists.
I played with a local guide so navigating the course wasn't an issue for me. Several of the blind holes are really punishing if you don't take a look before throwing; that's really only a problem for first timers, before you learn the course. It could use one to two more open holes that let you rip a drive to balance out all the trees. But this is a solid course that was fun to play. I would definitely go back here again.

Lots of great holes, course can be confusing.
Pros: Plenty of cool holes after the first few, some of which will make you smile in anticipation. Lots of wooded holes if you like that sort of challenge.
Cons: Can be very confusing to navigate, even after having thrown this course a few times. Holes are all marked, but the order of the holes is not always clear.
Other Thoughts: Hills, hills and more hills. And trees. Challenging course, but worth the effort. Many beautiful holes, well-staged for scenic effect. The course is split by a road, but you only have to throw a few "roadside holes". Otherwise decently secluded. Lots of fun drives, and some clever basket placements.

Pros: This is a decent course in Northeast Ohio with lots and lots of trees. Nice changes in elevation make this course challenging. You'll be using a lot of your short-shot magic here.
Cons: The course can be a little confusing, but the map helps out a lot. Only a few holes where you can really let a shot loose without getting it into the rough or hitting a tree. Some pedestrian traffic and some car traffic.
Other Thoughts: The course is in a nice park with restrooms and drinking fountain. A great park to hit before or after Arboretum-Spiker in Canton.
