Pros: + Uncrowded usually
+ Excellent facilities with several water fountains
+ Good exercise for a short course
+ Nice to work on fundamentals
+ Always well mowed

Cons: - Recent tree removal lowered the challenge
- Bad or no signage
- Awful baskets
- People can get in the way easily
- Hole 2 and 3 confuse the flow of the course
Other Thoughts: The baskets are far past the point of needing replaced. Recently, they removed a ton of big mature tree's from the fairways and thus removed most of the challenges on holes 4 and 5. It would be nice if hole 7 was moved much farther out. Please take care if playing this course while there are high winds. The big tree's by 5 and 9 drop limbs very easily.

I usually play this as a 10 hole course using what is considered hole 3's basket twice. Left of basket 1 is the old hole 2 teepad that is made out of stone blocks just like the first teepad. It adds is a nice big hyzer shot or possible spike hyzer for some.

On a positive note, you will be hard pressed to find a rural course with more wildlife. It's not uncommon for a handful of deer to pretend like you are not even there.

Pros: The one thing that this course does have is the elevation changes. They know how to use their surroundings. There are hills here so they put them to good use. It is also a great beginner course. There are the holes that the beginners will really enjoy. Very easy to navigate your way through this course. The park is never very crowded. You can come and get a quick round of nine down in no time. Great location located in Fort Thomas and is near nice courses. There is plenty of parking so you will never have to park all the way down the street. The trees here are very nice. They know how to use the trees very well.
Cons: First of all the tee signs are torn up and of to no use now. You are just going to have to look around the park to find the basket for this hole. The tee is nothing but grass, and sometimes pretty rough. It is not good to be on a bumpy surface while throwing. The thing that was the worst to me was the baskets. They had some of the chains unhooked, and the baskets were old and rusted. I actually hit the chains right down the middle and it fell through a hole in the basket. I have no idea where the seventh tee is. I looked all over for it and was still unable to find it. So i gave up and just threw.
Other Thoughts: Considering where this course is located near a bunch of other very nice one i dont recommend coming here. Unless you are just right in the area and want to get in a quick round dont go here. In particular this is not a very challenging course at all. I finished well under par. There are a couple of holes here that could be considered ace holes. So when you go bring alot of disc and go for the ace. This is just very short and sweet.

Pros: Location is nice in Fort Thomas nothing else very close. Park is kept well. Nice elevation changes good mix of wooded holes(not heavily wooded) and open holes. As well as a mix of lengths. Good course to get people going/started playing.
Cons: Holes 1-6 are split from 7-9 by a small walk. The tee pads are the biggest con. They are stone to it is uneven with gaps. They are not level and some are in very bad condition. You have to be careful that you don't end up twisting your ankle or rolling it. Be careful. The tee signs aren't very accurate, they just moved a few holes without changing the tee signs. Condition of baskets is alright.
Other Thoughts: It is a nine hole course. Construction is happening near two of the holes. The first hole throws right by someone's back yard if your not careful/new players could end up in their yard.

 Kind of run down...

Pros: This course is near others and could be included in a multi-course day.

Some of the holes offer challenging D, and trees. Nothing too nasty, but enough to make a difference if you're playing a close game with your buddies.
Cons: My major gripe with this course is that the surrounding park does not lend a lot to the atmosphere of the course. The park is situated right in the middle of a suburban neighborhood. Unfortunately, you don't feel like your away from civilization which is one of my favorite things about playing disc golf. Some of the holes are adjacent to a run-down basketabll court which is literally covered in rubble. It looks like a battlefield.

Also, the baskets are kind of beat up.. With my terrible putting, I can't afford to be stuck with a stroke because a basket's bent out of shape (ha ha).
