 Worth a play

Pros: Woods holes are fair, never really felt like I was in a "spray and pray" situation. Many fun shots can be had here and I found the river running along several holes to only add to the nice scenery. It is possible to put it in the river, but it would take a pretty errant shot. When played the river seemed low, so this could change based on how deep it is running, not sure. Nonetheless, the only situation I can really see a disc hitting the river is an overthrow on an approach shot. Play cautious and you shouldn't have problems. Some holes have a creek in play but, again, adds to the scenery and challenge, shouldn't really be a disc loser if you throw it in. 14 and the steep downhill throw (16) were my favorite holes.

The new signage, which is on the majority of the tees, is really impressive. Good diagrams, hole length, elevation change, and look to be quite durable. If the course continues to improve and works on some of the cons below I could give this course a 3.5.

If you are a local or in the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky region it is certainly worth the short drive to try it out.
Cons: A couple of the holes are difficult to find and only sometimes is the way to the next tee marked with a sign. Most holes have the newer signage mentioned above, but they lack pointers to the next tee direction. Some holes do not have these nice signs, the posts merely have a number and look like holdovers from before the upgrades. The numbers do not always match, for example one hole said "10" in the old signage on the post but the newer hole diagram on the top said it was 12. Many of the woods holes lack tee pads and can be quite muddy and slick. Looks like the course is still being remodeled so I am giving them the benefit of the doubt on these.

As others have said, the beginning of the course is pretty ho-hum. One isn't so bad thanks to a guarded basket, but things don't pick up from there until 5. After that the course is quite pleasant. The course favors straight and right-to-left shots, not quite the amount of variety I would like.
Other Thoughts: Two holes, 9 and 20, are marked as "9L" and "20L" on the new signage. Not sure if this stands for lower meaning there are alternate tee pads, but I could not see any.

Course is in a nice park, seems safe and has a basketball court, walking trails, baseball field, playground, volleyball court, and open field to mess around in.

Pros: Some open holes and lots of tight hilly holes also. A few possible ace holes also. Some water in play if rained recently.
Cons: No tee pads on many holes. Hole 14 is a cool hole going down steep hole but can be Treacherous. They need steps or something going down that hill. Maybe think twice on wet or snowy days.
Other Thoughts: Over all a good course. A few mandatory shots. Just needs updated a bit..

 Can't wait to get into the woods

Pros: A lot of variety in the types of holes and the throws you need to use
Some fun elevation changes
Doubles as a good nature hike
Cons: Can get swampy about every and just plain dangerous on the hills following a lot of rain
They are doing some renovating so it was at times confusing to navigate
The wooded holes could use some mowing and clearing
Open holes are kinda ho hum
Other Thoughts: The Cincinnati area is loaded with great courses so I would imagine that this course gets overlooked. It's a shame because it's a nice course. If I lived in the area I would have no problem with this as my home course and venturing out to the Mt. Airys, Idlewilds and the Lincoln Ridges when I had the time.

The first few holes to honest were a little boring but I knew I would going into the woods soon which is the strong point of this place. Just view them as the warm up holes. Then the fun starts....

Once you get into the woods you have hills, terrain and water to deal with. It's a nature course, it's rugged and will wear you out. Very high fun factor Excellent course layout in here but it can be confusing. I'm willing to hold off judgement on this until the are finished with their course makeover.

It's been raining nonstop here in Ohio for over a month, almost everywhere was swampy. The fairways in the wooded holes badly needed mowing and clearing but I'm sure the rain had a lot to do with why they have been neglected so again, I'm holding off judgement. There are some steep hills in here and when they get muddy it becomes dangerous. I had a horrible time climbing down hole 14. Sharp angled hill slick with mud. Again, no ones fault but I thought I'd warn ya. Just be careful.

I enjoyed this course, wouldn't mind hitting it up again after renovating is finished and giving it a chance to dry up. Check it out if your a local but I wouldn't put it on any road trip lists. Too many over great places in the Cincinnati area

Pros: Nice concrete tee pads. Clean and safe feeling park. Nice variety of holes and challenges. Had the course to myself the day I was there.
Cons: Once you get into the woods it gets confusing. I had to walk back and forth to figure out which basket to throw at. The next tee pad was also hard to find in there. There is also some loose brush that I hope has been cleaned up.
Other Thoughts: The course starts out with wide open drives. I had the feeling of "I can't wait to get in the woods." Once in the woods the challenges can begin. There is a nice downhill throw in the woods with a river in the background, but it is quite a workout to get up there. There is room for fairly easy improvements. If you are nearby check it out but it isn't a destination course.

  Poor Rating and very difficult course

Pros: Many holes that are easy to find and play
Cons: Difficult to find some of the holes that are in the woods on the hills and too many hills and problems with the river so close to many of the holes
Other Thoughts: Someone needs to redesign this course in order to decrease some of the problems finding and getting to the holes. I dont know what they were thinking when they put the holes in the ground here. Completely dis-satisfied with this course. (in the woods)

Pros: This course has decent challenges and great scenery. Once you get into the woods holes (7 and beyond), the course improves tremendously. Also, two signature holes really impressed me. I cannot remember their numbers (and they may change anyway because the holes are being re-designed). One of these holes ends with the pin on top of a hill, with dramatic, panoramic views of a valley stretching out in the distance. The other is a short (175 ft.?) hole that rolls straight down a steep incline. A river runs about 40 ft. past the hole, and you have a great view of that as you tee off.
Cons: The first six holes are boring. They are straight across a field, about 190 - 230 ft. each, with no real obstacles.

Also, the course in currently being rearranged, so the flow is confusing. Many holes have two numbers on them: an old blue and yellow wooden number, and a new plastic tee sign which shows the hole's layout and distance. Once all of the holes are finalized with the new tee signs, the confusion shouldn't be an issue.
Other Thoughts: This course is definitely worth a visit, even if it's confusing at the moment. Just wander around and play as many holes as you can find (it's really not THAT difficult, just not as easy as navigating your familiar home course).

Pros: I live 5 miles away from this course and it is a blessing. I have not played to many courses but this course is a must play. I am there about every day and see many good players and not so good players, but that is what makes it nice. If you want to take some friends who are good at woodland mound
and want a little more of a challenge this is it. Real nice mix of open holes and wooded holes. Two right turning holes the second one is real Challenging. Have fun driving the open holes because in the woods there is no way. I thank it is hole 14 but it is down hill and a nice shot
Cons: There are not to many cons. Some water shots on 5, 8, 14, and maybe 6 if you get a bad kick through the woods. If it rains hole one is a swamp. And there are some bad weeds in the woods so try to stay in the fair way but the cut a lot down. The cut down some trees so not as difficult as before in the woods.
Other Thoughts: There are only 19 holes even though it says 20. they are adding new holes you will see some on your way through the woods.some holes are a little hard to find the first time so here are some hints After hole 8 take the trail right behind the basket and keep left for hole 9. tee off from the first tee pad / gravel pile you see. After that basket go up the hill and it will be easy from there on. If you get hungry go to mt.orab it is right on 32 you will see it, and it is olny about 5 or 6 min away.

Pros: Nice wooded course with great elevation changes. Has a few open holes. Good mix of left and right throws, short and long.
Cons: No concrete teepads, and the signs were not the greatest. Saw some holes that i couldnt figure out where the tee was. Played 19 holes so wasnt to worried about that basket in the woods.
Other Thoughts: Some itchy weeds had me running to the river to wash off my legs, and had to re tee after shooting at wrong basket. Is a great wooded course that is calling me back to it.
