Ashland's Best Course ;)
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: This is now a 6 hole course is crammed into a very small area between the football stadium and high school building. I don't think this course has been played by anyone in years. Could be a little practice area with a little bit of work.
Cons: Most tee signs are missing. There are no tee markers.
#2's Basket is broken, nothing to catch the disc once it hits the chains.
Looks like it hasn't been played in years.
Crammed into an area way too small for 9 holes.
Most holes are under 200 feet and provide no challenge whatsoever.
Holes 3-5 are nonexistent.
Looks like everyone forgot about this place. It's been open for 17 years, and is struggling to stay alive.
Other Thoughts: Might as well pull the baskets, as they are an eye soar at this point. Broken baskets and no tees really give you no reason to visit here, unless you're just bagging courses.

Good practice course
Pros: -Very well manicured, since it is part of a high school horticulture department
-A few holes with an interesting/challenging layout
-Not a deterrent for younger players
-A lot of anhyzer shots to work on your midrange game
Cons: -Very short
-Layout can be a bit confusing
-A few holes require you sort of doubling back to get the next one, which would put you in the way of some
Other Thoughts: Not a course that you should drive to play, but if you are in the area and school is out, don't skip it. Some unique looks through some evergreen growth. Most of the holes are putts/midrange shots but some offer a challenge with tucked baskets. Course could use some better directional markings, but all in all not bad for something at a high school.

Pros: - I expected the scenery and landscape to be your typical boring high school but I found it to be surprisingly pretty inside the tiny wooded area. There is nothing spectacular about it but it's less boring than I predicted. There is also a decorative pond at Hole #9 that is pleasing to the eye.
- Small mix of shots and little variety of angles. Hole #3 has a row of trees to the right and a baseball field to the left then a small fade left to the basket. Hole #4 has a low overhang with a basket tucked in to the right. Hole #5 also is a right turning hole but the basket left of a few guardian trees. Hole #6 follows the rows of pine trees to the right again and has more guardian trees. Hole #7 has a very low overhang with a slight left turning fairway, then the basket is tucked uphill on the right.
- There are a few small elevations that add to the course. Hole #5 plays on a slight downhill grade and Hole #7's Basket is uphill a bit on a small slope. Hole #9 plays over a tiny ravine/water hazard.
- The course flows fine. The Tee for Hole #1 is right by the parking lot and Hole #9's Basket is right near there. There is a small walk from Hole #5's Basket to #6's Tee.
- Nice Tee Signs with Next Tee Signs at every hole but Hole #2
- The natural Tee's are in decent shape
- Baskets are labeled
- Good upkeep
- I'd guess that this course has very low traffic by disc golfers and virtually no traffic but anyone else
- There is a trashcan near Hole #1
- The school is easy to find and it is near route 42
Cons: - The total distance is approx 1668'. Many people could throw 1668' in 5 throws on an open field. This is not a SHORT course, it's miniscule.
- Hole #3 & 5's Basket could be moved farther away
- Hole #9 is literally a 100' putt. The Basket could be moved about 30' back at least and the Tee could probably also be moved back as well. Maybe Hole #1's Tee could be moved toward the field to make more room for #9's Basket.
- There is a lot of tree coverage toward the front of the school (passed Hole #5's Basket) that could be used and the course could be a MUCH longer 9 hole course
- Safety could become an issue at Hole #2 & 3 if there was a baseball game going
- 3 Baskets are no longer very level
- Limited time. You can obviously only play this course when the school is not in session.
Other Thoughts: - Good place for beginners. Bring them here, train them in the ways of the force, then take them to Deis and watch their jaw drop.
- This small course does have it's challenges with low overhangs to get under and tight, sharp turning fairways. Even though there are a few challenging the course is very easy overall.
- The most challenging hole is Hole #6. Very tight fairway that turns right. A few bad hits and a double bogey could be in your future.
- My favorite hole is Hole #4. You throw into the pretty wooded area from a Tee that has an extremely low overhand and the basket is tucked around to the right. It's fun to try to throw fast and low and plan for a skidding stop at just the right spot.
- Must go to course? No. I am in no way complaining that the course is here. I'm always happy for a course simply existing, however, 'existence' is really all this course has going for it.

Nice practice course
Pros: Nice and scenic. good place to take beginners or to practice short technical shots
Cons: Not a very satisfying course to any type of experienced golfer.
Other Thoughts: Not a lot to ths course. A couple holes are open a bit but not very long and the rest is more like having a walking path with baskets randomly placed. I have a step daughter that goes to school there who talked up how nice it was and I pick on her and tell her it was the put-put course of disc golf, which might be the best way to describe it.
All in all; it is scenic so; dont go looking for a game but rather a relaxing toss instead.

Fun little course
Pros: Mostly short holes with a variety of open and tight fairways.
The long holes on this course were in the 200-240 range. Most holes were in the 180 range. The longer holes are in the beginning and tended to be open.
After the first three, the holes start to get more technical with very tight fairways and well protected baskets.
The 6th hole was a joy being entirely inside a little pine grove. It was deceptively difficult.
Cons: Some of the fairways were TOO tight and seemed to be more walking paths than DG fairways. This was only a major issue on the 5th hole.
Other Thoughts: If you can crush the drives, this course might not do it for you. For my wife and I who are new players and only drive 120'-160' when we throw perfectly, this course was a lot of fun. It was challenging enough to not waste our time but easy enough that it didn't feel that the course was beating us.
