Pros: Well designed. Challenge of water holes. Every different shot used (including an anhyzer over water that must go around a huge tree). Another hole requires a drive over a small inlet in the water to a pin on a peninsula. It is fabulous to look out at the peninsula into this beautiful lake and see a disc golf basket. It soothes the soul. The park was exquisitely kept. fairways were fabulous.
Cons: The park closes at dark...promptly at dark. Or at least it did 2 years ago when we were last there. The park was slightly hard to find for guests (I think we had to turn and go behind a strip mall) but it may have been bad PDGA directions.
Other Thoughts: This is a jewel of a course. We played it as an afterthought on our return from a weekend in the Cincinnati area. It turned out to be one of the top courses for the trip. I would definitely put it on par with Mt. Airy in Cincy as well as Banklick Woods. We did not have a chance to play the entire course as it was crowded and the guards were screaming at us to leave with about 4 holes to go. The great news though is that we started on the back 9 due to the crowd. This allowed us to get all of the water holes in which turned out to be fantastic. If you play here often, I'll bet you will lose quite a few discs. My buddy through a floater into the lake...I ended up swimming out to get it...so I played the rest of the holes soaking wet. It was worth it to play in a setting like this. This was one of the places were it really felt like disc golf got the good "real estate". Too many courses are on cast-off pieces of land, but this is a totally different story in Elizabethtown. The town is a nice little place too.

Pros: Wide veriaty of shots and terrain. Has several holes around or over water. Some long holes and some short ones. It feels very much like Keriakis in Bowling Green but is longer and a little more open and has more veriaty. It has roling terrain and some disc grabbing cedar trees.
Cons: I wish it had one or 2 heavily wooded holes. Hole #3 is wooded, but that is the only one. But you do have to work with the land you are given.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a really fun course to play. It is not terribly difficult, but if the wind starts blowing you will not shoot as well as you would expect to. It is always well kept.

Pros: Beautiful course with a good mix of open and tight holes. Very well maintained. There are only a couple of tunnel holes.

Hole 16 is over the water but there are alternate teepads so most people should be able to find on they can clear the water from.
Cons: Can be hard to find some of the tees. Hole 18 is back across the road LOL. The day I played there were a lot of people around the lake. That made #16 difficult to play because people were in the way.
Other Thoughts: This course is a lot like Kereiakes in Bowling Green except it is longer and there is a lake. The strategic use of trees is very similar. On hole 3 you better use a loft putt because if you miss with a regular putt you will roll down the hill and into the scrub.

Pros: Very well maintained, mix of open and tight fairways, good mix of long and short holes, baskets are well maintained, changes in elevation, OB and water hazards on several holes
Cons: Swirling wind that almost impossible to read, christmas decorations out for 2-3 months
Other Thoughts: The only thing this course is lacking is multiple pads. This is a great course that is highly recommended

Pros: Wide variety of shots. Some real long open holes and others that are tightly wooded. Several hard water shots. Well maintained and taken care of by local Pro Johnny Greenwell. Multiple Pin positions that are changed often. Generally it is long, short, long, short and so on, or vice versa.
Cons: Kiss a few discs goodbye if it is windy!

 Mini Kereiakes Park.....

Pros: This is a very well thought out course. I believe there were 3 water shots on the back 9 which are awesome to play. The scenery is spectacular and the course is really nice. This is a great course for all. I would recommend this course to anyone.
Cons: Honestly, I cannot think of anything because it was such a great course. Personally I did not do as well as I would have like to because I've only played it once while a friend and I traveled up from Nashville, TN to play it. I shot a +1; I was really looking to shot under par that day.
Other Thoughts: This is like a mini Kereiakes Park located in Bowling Green, KY except with water shots!
