Pros: -- Wide open
-- Reasonable hole lengths for newer players
-- Seems to be well maintained
Cons: -- could get boring for more advanced players
Other Thoughts: Loved this course, mainly because I could build some confidence in it and actually scored a few pars and even had chance at birdie as a very new player. No real chance of losing a disc, except on 9 if you over throw the basket.

 This is what a nine hole should be.

Pros: Approachable for new players, excellent practice course for vets to work the mids or drive some putters.
Field across the street for some field work, just throw away from the kids on the playground!
Cons: Not a full 18. Gets super muddy after storms.
Other Thoughts: I will play this course a hundred times over Griggs. This is the place to go if you need work on your game and then you can play Hoover or Pickerington for a full course. The care that went into/still goes into this course is five star!

Pros: Very nicely kept grounds and good signage. Nice course map for first-timers.
Good for practicing mid-range shots or long putts.
Cons: A little too wide open and the dirt tees can be hazardous to anlkes.
Other Thoughts: I have taken several people here for an introduction to disc golf and they have always enjoyed it. Very nice for getting in a quick round.

Pros: Any skill level has the chance to flourish here
The baskets have hole numbers above them
Landscape is BEAUTIFUL
9th basket is excellently placed
Always parking available
Cons: Extremely short with holes as short as 150'
Gets windy at times
Natural tees are muddy for several days after rain
#4 being a par 4 is a joke
Other Thoughts: Bring your kids, bring your wife, bring your grandma, anybody can play here. This course is excellent for practicing your short game

Pros: I played this course just once and was hooked. I was also pleased to get a easy score after playing griggs the same day. I would say this course is the anti Delaware witch is a very long course.
Cons: The holes are no longer than 300 ft. But you can't really complain to much because this course was made on a small area by eagle scouts who are okay but their no Disc Golf course designer.
Other Thoughts: This course is great to play after getting beaten by any hard course to get your confidence up. Should also be played if you need a quick round. A well earned 3 stars I would play this course anytime

Pros: +Well maintaned.
+Nice area.
+Seldom busy.
+Easy to get in a quick game.
+Water hazard on #9 makes for controlled tee shot.
Cons: -Short course.
-Road runing next to course can be a bit of a hazzard to errant discs.
-Land available is limited so some fairways are close together.
Other Thoughts: Even though you can sight Cons for this course, they really aren't. This course is what it is. The land was freely given for creation of the course and a nice relaxing course is what you get. The short holes, although not challenging to advance players, allow good practice of upshots and disc control. You can play an easy 18 in well under an hour so it's great for a lunchtime break from work. They have planted many more trees on the course so the difficulty is increasing.(although still easy). Great course in the space provided. Great for a few rounds of putting/upshot practice.

Pros: course plays quick, great for a lunch break round. let's you work on your short game. Water comes into play on hole 9.
Cons: Fairways are very close to each other and a couple of tee signs are missing (respect the courses or they will disappear people, let's keep the sport alive)
Other Thoughts: This is on a very small piece of land and has a course par of 29, could easily be all par 3s. Great job with the land given to use.
