Pros: Easy course, love to take beginners here, especially because the holes have more than generous pars
Cons: Muddy on occasion, tees are slippery, brush of the rough contains a lot of thorns and can be tricky to navigate
Other Thoughts: I lost a disc, color between blue and green, and sparkling, like aqua or teal. Its a tournament disc titled " bowling green " most likely left behind accidentally near hole 18 or hole 1.

I also lost my champion valkyrie on hole 13, if either are found please call 5132390355

Billy Boys Review

Pros: A great course for beginners to learn on, and for experienced players to practice on. This original Steady Ed design helps new players learn different types of throws and lets them focus on accuracy as much as power. For the advanced player; think of it as a great practice course. Each hole has multiple approaches, most can be easily birdied and even aced, but if you miss the ace you may trade your birdie for a par or worse. Most holes are pretty open, but there are plenty of obstacles to get hung up on. Play a day here and your game will improve for sure.
This is a busy course so plan on meeting new people of all levels of play. The course flows very easily so you don't need to worry about finding your way except going from #7 to #8 (#9 looks like the next tee). It should take about an hour to complete a round.
There is plenty of safe parking, bathrooms, and water at #1, #9, & #18. There is a practice field for drives next to the parking lot, but there is no practice basket for putting. The basket for #18, however, serves well for putting practice if the course is not too busy. The flora and fauna is beautiful and divers, with lots of Cedar and Osage. You may even see herds of wild turkey behind the basket for #5; just don't throw you disk down there.
Cons: The Tee pads are pretty broken up in places and the signage has long since worn to unreadable, though you really don't need the signage to play. The baskets are a bit old and set in asphalt circles that can damage you discs, so plan on some wear. Some poison ivy to worry about, so keep your eyes open if you go into the rough.
While this course dose play fast and easy, allowing you to play many rounds in a day, the tee pads are often right next to the previous basket and a few fairways run together. So, if you are playing on a pretty weekend afternoon, plan on spending a little time waiting on other players.
Other Thoughts: There is a $3 per day parking fee ($10 per year).

For the beginner:
This is the place to start improving your game towards the next level. Don't be shy about asking for pointers from the more advanced players, either. Most people here are happy to help.

For the advanced players:
Don't turn your nose up at this course right off. Play a few rounds. I'm sure you'll find it far more enjoyable and challenging than you had expected at first glance.

 Nice trip to the park

Pros: It is an open course, but still requires you to make some good throw. Nice place to work on your game. Usually easy to get on and off early in the day
Cons: Short. Other than that, it is a fun play
Other Thoughts: This i-s my 'home' course. Just a few miles away, I play there 8-10 rounds a week. Have only been throwing since the fall, so it is great to have a nice course nearby

Busy, but Fun

Pros: +Quick 18 traffic permitting
+Lots of ace runs
+Plenty of parking
+Clean well maintained park
+Ample variety in lines and elevation
Cons: -Teepads are uneven and slick. Asphalt surrounding the baskets is hard on putters
-Rough is thick in the summer
-Heavy traffic despite the fees
-Layout is confusing for casuals
-Very compact so keep an eye out for errant throws
Other Thoughts: It's not bad and it is far from perfect but there is just enough fun to be had here to keep you coming back for more. The park is showing its age. The pads are uneven and a few baskets are wobbly. There are a lot of casuals and families that frequent here so be patient and keep an eye out for chuckers. I have seen more than one person get hit here, but I've seen just as many aces as well. I see a lot of players get discs stuck in the cedars too. Don't be surprised if you run into some very large groups on the course. There isn't a practice basket so be mindful of using 18 to warm up when players are trying to finish.

Pros: Short course. I believe around 4400ft. Its almost a mile walk. I am no pro, but I play the entire course as a par 3. Great for a beginner, took my dad who never played before, he threw a +5 and +4 (using par 3's). Nice field across from course to warm up or practice new discs.
Cons: Pads need to be upgraded/replaced. Some are bumpy/grooved. The hole pads are blacktop, so a good toss could land you 30ft. from hole. No practice tee. Most people, if not busy use 18 basket as practice from 1 tee. Not as challenging now that the creek,bridges, and some fairway trees are gone. Not well marked. (see Other Thoughts)
Other Thoughts: Just a walk in the park. The gift shop has discs to purchase. I rarely use a driver here. On a good day I don't use it at all. DON'T SKIP HOLE #8. Its easy to skip. After hole #7 going uphill turn around from basket to go to #8. Hole #9 is the par 3 around tree.

Pros: I guess on a good note, its short. I used to be an Eastsider, so I've played here a lot, and have met some very nice people.
Its in a nice county park and there is other things for your family to do while you play
Cons: Its a little tricky of a lay out
very popular
its changed some over the years, who drained the creek?
Other Thoughts: Adam Jones has installed a nice course on the East side, about two years ago, I'd recommend that one over woodland any day

 Good beginner course

Pros: This course is very well designed and very simple to follow. Mainly for the casual disc golfer to even the beginner. They have done a lot of changes to this park over the summer of last year. The biggest change is between hole 10 and 17. There is no more creek and bridge their. they covered with dirt and now it is a nice grass walkway. Also their is a lot less ash trees on the couse. Has made this course a lot easier. There is no real signature hole on this course just a small 18 hole course. The longest hole is 340 ft and the shortes is 140 ft.
Cons: There are a few cons on this course. since this is a beginner course their is a lot of high school kids and new players to disc golf. Be careful of them throwing. they have no control and may hit you. i have seen it happen. Also they have no etiquette. A lot of new players will not let a single player through even if they have a group of 6. The tee pads are very broken down here and need to be replaced. Also when it is wet they are slick and you will slip and fall. They have cracks in them that will mess up your throw if you are not paying attention. Also the baskets are all encirled with concrete. so a good shot that hits this pad of concrete will skip 20 feet past the whole.
Other Thoughts: Overall i would say woodland mound is a begginner course and if you are looking for a quick bit of fun or looking to test a new disc this is the course for doing that. I would recomend playing this course with some friends if you are a looking for only a 1 or 2 hour time window to get in 2 rounds.

Pros: Great for beginners as the holes are short and pretty wide open. Gret for short game work. Love the "greens around the Hole with arrows pointing to the next tee box.
Cons: The wooded area that doo not come in to play much are hard to get through to find errant throws. The teeboxes are asphalt and not very flat and on wet mornings can be VERY SLIPPERY.
Other Thoughts: Not a bad course just old and the pars on the holes are easly made.

Pros: A fun course to take your family to for a family day.
Good course for rec players and beginners to play since the longest hole is about 340ft with most averaging in the 250-275ft range.
Good course for better players to work on their putter/mid range game.
It looks more open than it really is, you will learn to throw with accuracy here.
If you go during a weekday during the day you should have no problem getting multiple rounds in without and wait.
The grass is usually pretty well taken care of.
Cons: Asphalt tee pads - get very slick when it rains or snows, especially hole 11 for a few days after a rain. Some are cracking and others are uneven from the back of tee to front.
Some of the fairways run right along side each other so you need to be aware of flying discs at all times.
On weekends and in the evening during the week this course draws a good crowd so expect some kind of wait even if only a few minutes.
The tree next to hole 4's tee pad is starting to take over part of the tee pad now and may interfere with your throw.
The trees on the right side of hole 10's fairway are growing out and really make this a tough/tight throw compared to what it used to be.
If you do lose a disc here don't expect to get a phone call to get it back if your number is on it.
Other Thoughts: With any Hamilton County Park you're going to need a park sticker, either $3/day or $10 for the year.
Lots of stuff to do in the park(park, splash park, nature trails, nature center, shelters for picnics, camping) for the whole family besides just the disc golf course.
