Pros: In todays standards the course is pretty short. However, I played this course twice. Round one I shout a -6, round 2 I shot a +6 so the course can kick your but if your not paying attention. I would consider this a really good rec course. I had fun playing it, but wouldn't consider it a course to visit often.

Pros: Good variety of holes/shot options on front nine. The 3 wooded holes in the sink hole are both fun and challenging. Hole #2 requires an accurate shot that must sail over a fence and creek(usually dry). A few holes on the back nine where you can give it a bit of a rip.
Cons: Tees are short and often uneven. There is no practice putting area.Can be very crowded with park goers pic-nicking and fishing close to the fairways. Parked cars along the OB road can make you alter your shot selections. Lots of goose guano on holes 3-6. Those playing baseball/softball near holes 17&18 can be quite disrespectful by practicing in the fairways and even parking their cars well into the fairway on 17!
Other Thoughts: In case you can't tell, this is my "home course". I play here at least 3 times a week. While there are definately better courses in Bowling Green, Basil-Griffin is a unique course that is worth checking out if you are in the area.

Pros: The front 9 on this course is as good as you will play anywhere. Lots of water. #2 is my favorite hole anywhere. Most of the holes are fairly short and a well placed midrange will give you a 2. A few holes on the front have pro tees that you can play and if you play #3 from the pro tees it's a really great hole that you have to throw way out over the lake and hyzer back in to the basket. The front 9 requires some really technical shots that you wouldn't normally throw.
Cons: The back nine is very lacking. It has a bunch of planted trees that are too young to cause any problems. I played the other day and had six 2's on the back with only one 4 and that was just due to 3 bad throws. Only 3 holes even require a driver and they are pretty much wide open.

If you don't like losing a disc you won't like all of the water on the front nine. If you play if more then a time or 2 you are going to spash one.
Other Thoughts: As I said, great front nine. Meeeh back nine. If the back nine was a good as the front it would get a 4.5 rating. You can easily shoot in the 40's on the course. It's pretty hard to make very many bogey's on the back nine.

Pros: Great technical course, lots of pin placements that keep you from shooting a 2 yet let you get a 3 easily. Good mix of Water, wooded holes, open holes, and OB. This is a really good course!!!
Cons: Built in an area that floods.....
Other Thoughts: Still one of my favorite BG courses!!!!!!!!

 Bowling Green Am course #1

Pros: Course has varied terrain, giving some elevation changes and challenging water features. Maintained pretty well. 7 grip 'n rip open holes.
Cons: Most holes are "lefty" friendly. Hard to follow course, especially finding tee 7 after 6. Tourney caused a major backlog on hole 2 (5 card). My group finished 15 holes in 1hour, then got to the jam and sat for 45 minutes before we tee'd again.
Other Thoughts: Went down for the Blowing Green Am event. 11 hour drive. Nice course for the locals, but not worth the gas or lodging costs. ;o)

Pros: This course has a variety of tight shots and open shots. Also has varying distance holes. Course is well maintained.
Cons: Some/most of the teepads are shorter than normal and are not even with their surrounding surface so it can affect the approach when driving. A bit hard to find number 7 if you're new to the course. Back 9 is really packed in there. I would imagine that in a heavy tourney situation, it would present a pretty big problem, but maybe that's why they don't usually use this course for tourney events.
Other Thoughts: I like the course because it's close to my house and offers a good challenge to beginners and pros.
