Pros: This is a decent course with many fun holes. The holes have some nice distance varieties. There are 2 ponds, which come into play on several holes. There are only slight elevation changes and it was used. The course is mostly open but there are scattered trees. The extra holes (A-F) are tightly wooded, however these holes are not currently on the map.

Other Pros:

- tee signs
- concrete tee pads
- not crowded
Cons: Overall, the course isn't too hard to navigate but there are a few tricky spots where a map would definitely save you some time.

Other Cons:

- goose poo near the water
- very windy in the open areas
Other Thoughts: Overall, the course is nice but nothing special. I think this course is a nice compliment to the other Dayton area courses. The Dayton area has a solid group of courses to play and my trip there was worth it.

Pros: The course plays through a sprawling park with some rolling elevation changes, a couple water hazards, and scattered mature trees. The design takes advantage of the elevation changes available, they're not anything dramatic but they do add some interest and variety. Most holes play through scattered mature trees with multiple lines to hit, and a few evergreens that will catch a disc and make you pay for an errant shot. A few holes use the ponds to add some risk/reward with some fun water carries and dangerous pin placement. The added 6 holes play a tighter and more technical, adding a slightly different dimension to the course.

There is plenty of length here, with several holes that let you bomb a drive if you can accurately get past a few trees. The holes that do force specific shapes do a nice job of mixing up left and right turning shots to keep it a little more balanced. The tees are decent concrete pads with fine texture. There is adequate signage at the tees, and to direct you to the added 6 holes. The baskets are in nice shape and catch well.
Cons: There are some weird spots in terms of navigation, where I had to pull up the map on my phone to figure out where to go next. A couple holes are really easy to skip if you're not paying good attention. The course gets pretty repetitive, with mostly open longer holes where you only need to avoid a couple trees. The added holes do change things up a bit, but a couple of those don't have real fairways that are shaped in a way discs actually fly. Around the ponds, there is a ton of goose poop that's pretty hard to avoid.
Other Thoughts: This is an ok stop if you're in the Dayton area, but nothing spectacular. Beginners might find it a little long, and the water holes might be a little daunting especially on a windy day. More experienced players will find it a little easy with not much punishment for poor drives, and easy open lines to hit.
