Pros: Forces accuracy
Cons: Water hazards galore!
Don't recommend attempting to wade after wet discs...the ponds and ditches have 2 feet of mud at the bottom.
Other Thoughts: The original (permanent) 9-hole course is relatively short (<300ft) and plays around a number of small ponds and water-filled ditches.
I played the temporary 21-hole course (which incorporates the original 9) set up for the Ohio Amateur Championships this year; that course is not for the faint of heart, or the wild of drive. Many, if not most, of the holes either played close to, or over, water. A number had pins well within 20 feet of the edge; aggressive shots that go even slightly astray will definitely get wet. Several of the temp holes were also quite long, 600-800 feet. Several people told me that after the tournament a year ago, more than 100 discs were fished out of the various ponds and ditches. (I personally fished about a dozen out this year, in about 30 minutes.)
If you play this course, don't use your $50 collector's discs!

This is a review of the 21 hole Ohio AMS temp course at Lake Erie
Pros: Wide open areas with very little trees to hit or get stuck in.
Cons: Lots of water hazards including some very long water lined fairways on the additional holes. The original holes are a lot less lengthy, but have quite an abundance of water on several holes.
This is a pay to play 9 hole course normally which is $5 per person.
Very little shade overall.
Other Thoughts: I decided to post up the course maps for the "forward" and "reverse" layouts for this 21 hole temp course that is run once a year.. True pics are better, but at least from the map you can get an idea of what the course layout is compared to prior to 6-2014 as there was no pictures or map at all. I saw a TON of discs get thrown into the water at this course and I would NOT suggest this course for anyone of at least a semi experienced level... minimum 1-2 years play time and have some pretty decent control of your shots or you are potentially lose a lot of discs here.

Short and Simple
Pros: Clean course that has low cut fairways and around the baskets.
Water is involved in every hole and the water is shallow and easy to retrieve discs.
Cons: All holes are extremely short.
There are no obstacles except the water. In all reality even intermediate players are throwing straight at the basket every time.
Other Thoughts: This would be a good course to bring a young player or for a first time disc golfer.
