Nothing Too Special Here

Pros: Aumiller Park is a (meh) course on the edge of the Sandusky River.

There are some fun holes here that keep things interesting, despite the lack of elevation changes. Liked playing holes 11-13 along the river.

Good mix of wooded holes and more open holes, pretty much a 50/50 split.

Back 9 is pretty good for beginners.

A few benches, with trash cans scattered about.

One of the only places to throw in the Bucyrus.

Concrete tees and DiscCatcher baskets on every hole, even though the baskets are starting to wear down.

Cons: Most tee signs are either missing or unreadable. A lot of the holes are pretty easy to figure out, but tee signs are pretty important for me.

There's a couple navigational signs on the front nine, but ZERO on the back. Make sure you have the map ready on your phone. Just some tape on the bottom of the basket can easily fix this.

This place kind of has a rundown feel to it. Baskets are rusty, signs are missing, the park isnt the cleanest.

Most holes are under 300 feet, providing no real challenge to advanced players. Shot under par on 18 for the first time in my life.

Not many memorable holes. Lack of elevation is a factor in this.

Lots of traffic on the course. Dog walkers, joggers, and kids flooded a couple of the fairways.

Front nine doesn't drain well. Very muddy after a few days of dry weather.
Other Thoughts: Overall, Aumiller Park doesn't live up to its rating at this point in time. Poor navigation and lack of basic course amenities didn't leave me satisfied. Not a course I would return to.

 Pretty nice

Pros: -Lot of shorter holes, I think 15 under 300ft
-Most holes marked
-Pretty big park with other things to do
Cons: -LOTS of trees, front 9 through dense wooded area
-About 5 or 6 holes missing markers
-Hole 1 is near Shelter #9 not #21
Other Thoughts: Pretty neat course. Difficult front 9 through the woods, but the back opens up nice. I wouldn't drive 45 minutes regularly for this course, but it offers a different setting than Tiffin.

 One of northern Ohio's Finest

Pros: Front 9 is heavily wooded & requires tight hyzer shot lines
Course is basically split in half with wooded and "open" holes
"Open" holes are still Challenging due to length, a river and sparse but very large trees
Cons: City streets are fairly hard to navigate & you have to drive through a creek to get into the park
Other Thoughts: This is a great course wether you are a local or if youre driving an hour to get there. you will get a descent challenge and have lots of fun. Also the locals arent the best kind of people so i would advise not to talk to randoms here

 A Tale of Two Nine's

~Shorter technical front, longer more open back.
~Front nine wooded hike is great.
~Back nine shady open park is serene and beautiful.
~Fantastic natural park setting, overall very tranquil.
~Post markers at tees and visible baskets create easy navigation.
~Defined shot lines and optional paths on most holes.
~(3) course loops: 1-9, 10-18 or 1-18 all end back at the parking lot.
~Plenty of additional park amenities.
~Natural tees provide poor footing, especially on the back 9.
~Could not find tee post for No. 9 so I improvised.
~Tee boxes not properly defined throughout course.
Other Thoughts:
Played on a moderately warm early spring day. Unfortunately there has been a lot of recent rain which really affected the back nine much more than the wooded front. The muddy conditions hindered good footing and especially powerful tee shots on the back where power would help on these longer holes. Hole 16 was unplayable as the basket was surrounded by water, but all the other holes were in great shape considering the recent rain. This is a beautiful park and the course layout couldn't be much better, take advantage of the surroundings while you play. This course really is a tale of two 9's and I played the wooded, technical front really well considering my experience. The back 9 opens up, but you have large trees and the mighty Sandusky river to contend with. Worth discovering while in the area.

Pros: The back nine, plus hole 9, are fun to play and offer enough mix of open lines with well-thought out pin locations among mature trees and some distance that they provide a very fair challenge without requiring perfection in shot-shaping. The water along 11, 12, and 13 gives you something to think about but generally shouldn't cause problems for any but the wildest arms.

The back nine is also visually appealing and pleasant.

Course flow returns to parking/first tee area after hole 9 and hole 18, making it easy to play only the front or back nine and to hit the restrooms or take a break in the middle of a round.

Park offers lots of amenities like restrooms, picnic shelters/pavilions, etc. Lots of parking quite close to the first/tenth tees.
Cons: Tee pads: when we played practice and tournament rounds here the week of Am Worlds, the pads had a fresh layer of mulch, and upside-down plastic cups filled with concrete to indicate the front corners of the tee box, but with all the rain the previous weeks several of them were still marshy to the point of being potentially dangerous, especially on Monday right after the rains. I suspect that after a few weeks the marker cups will be long gone and the mulch will have settled or been scattered, leaving nothing but a dark spot on the ground.

The front nine plays through dense woods with lots of elevation change. There are clear lines on some holes, but several are more in the "throw-and-pray" camp. I'm quite used to heavily wooded, tight courses (my home course is almost all like that), but even I found some of the holes to require much more luck than skill.

Mosquitos and biting flies were terrible on the front nine. Even after using the strongest insect repellent available, I was still being eaten alive soon after teeing off on the first hole.

Back nine has several walking paths and driveways/parking areas through and near it, so at times when the park is busy there could definitely be some waits for walkers/cars to clear. Fortunately, there really aren't any places where they will pop up unexpectedly -- you're able to see them while they're still well out of range, so there shouldn't be any risk of hitting someone.
Other Thoughts: Between the bugs and the trees, the front nine holes are really almost more to be survived than enjoyed, at least during warm weather -- perhaps I'd feel differently if I'd played this course in October or April instead of June/July. If I found myself back here in the summer, I'd be tempted to play the back nine twice and skip the front nine. Despite that, I do think it's an enjoyable course -- just not the best in the area.

Pros: Nice Clean wooded holes free of under bush

good mix of wooded and open long holes

good use of hills and basket placement

easy to navigate without a map

A challenge of beginners and advance/pro players
Cons: Some long spaces between some tee's but it wasn't to hard to figure out .

Dirt pads not a big deal to me but would suck in the winter in the woods with mud .

back nine are mostly open and lack variety
Other Thoughts: I really enjoyed this course and will go again when i visit family in tiffin .

Pros: +Combination of tight wooded holes follow by open ones
+Hill top to hill top holes
+Water gets in your head but is not overly dangerous

Cons: -Tees; while I dont need concrete, could at least use a "box". Most tees are spotted by the ruts in the dirt from constant use but no clear guidline on where the end or beginning of the tee actually would be.

-Navigation seemed intuitive at first, but eventually became cumbersome looking for the next tee. Marker for tee 9 was completely missing.
Other Thoughts: All in all; not a bad course, but seems somewhat un eventfull. Trees on the front nine make it challenging but there is nothing forcing you to take any unique shots as it is all just hoping you dont hit a tree; makes the course rather uneventfull; but, its still 18 holes and there is some nice ace run shots along with longer more open shots.

A clear tee along with just a small sign at the end of the hole pointing to the next hole would greatly improve the course.

Make some clear choice fairways that allow for creativity as well as forcing it would also go a long way.

Pros: Our course is excellent. It is tough and people get mad and give it an unfair rating. Short and technical front nine.Longer and more open back nine. River in play on 11,12,13..... Try the pro tees to experience a LONGER and WAY more difficult course.
Cons: No concrete tees....coming soon

Pros: Good mix of technical wooded shots and open shots
Located in a park with lots of other activities. You could bring the whole family, cookout swim hit the playground. Something for everyone
It's not to crowded and at the same time it's located not far from a small town
Cons: Some of the wooded holes can be a little too dense
Some of the open holes are tough to navigate
Other Thoughts: It did have dirt tee pads, but that doesn't bother me like it does a lot of people. the front 9 go through the woods and are pretty fun. The back 9 are more open with some tall trees to avoid. This is a good course if you live in the area but I wouldn't recommend it if your looking for a Disc Golf road trip. I like this course, there really isn't anything substantial to complain about but I don't love it.

Pros: - Lots of hole variety
- Clean, well-maintained course & park
Cons: - Course layout can be a bit confusing for first-timers
- Lots of unnecessary walking from hole to next tee at times
- Some of the wooded front nine holes are a bit too technical.
Other Thoughts: Overall a great course. If you are in the area, it's a must-play. I'm glad I played this course but wouldn't make the 2 hour trip again just to play here.

Park has bathrooms, lots of other amenities for kids, even a large outdoor swimming pool.

A few holes have you throwing over walkways, but nothing too off-putting.

Course layout is not entirely intuitive and can be confusing at times. I was told by a local that the kiosk map is out of date, some of the baskets have been moved since the map was put up.

Some seemingly unnecessary walking from hole to tee on the back nine, but overall it flows well enough.

Lot's of technical shots throughout, but enough open holes to get some long drives in. Front nine is in the woods, back nine mostly open although you will be throwing around trees or driving through some fairways with tree columns.

All the holes have tee signs, with distances although they seem to not have been sealed properly as there is already water damage on some of them.
