Pros: Wide open tee shots with very little trouble. Great for a beginner trying to find that perfect driver.

Nice cement tees and hole markers are accurate and detailed.

Almost all baskets are guarded by trees. Can be a pro or a con, depending on your perspective.
Cons: A few missed opportunities with hole design. Plenty of mature trees and obstacles that were NOT included in the course design.

Distance from the 18th basket back to the parking lot was a bit much. Might consider playing the holes starting at 6 and ending with 5 (One of the primary signature holes in my opinion). This will end you right at the parking lot.
Other Thoughts: If you are a beginner to the sport, this course allows a lot of forgiveness in shot selection. There are only a couple holes where potential loss of disc is a factor.

Your approach game is important here for low scores. If you cannot get close to the pin on your second shot, you may be in trouble reaching par.

If you need a course to test out new discs, and you live close to Piqua, this could be a great place to grip it and rip it.

Pros: A very diverse course. Long open hots and short technical shots. The course utilizes its surroundings well. Tee-signs and a new kiosk with a full map are now in place.
Cons: If you don't have a map, your first time navigating the course could be a bit tricky.
Other Thoughts: A great course with a variety of shots. The college setting and view of Alexander Stadium at neighboring Piqua High School in the background provides for a nice round.

Pros: A nicely mixed bag of mix of long open holes, a few tightly wooded shots, water hazards, some cool elevation changes, and it comes in at just under 5500 feet. Five alternate pin placements, cement tee-pads, tee signs are still pending, but are on order, benches, practice basket, and Discraft Chainstar baskets
Cons: Until the tee signs get installed, it may be difficult to find all the holes. Also, if the bean field eats your disc on hole 8 or 9, you're in for a world of hurt.
Other Thoughts: Separate disc golf parking on the campus, easy to find, surprizingly harder than it first appears,
