Cincinnati Area Courses?

Postby Dogma » Sun Apr 06, 2008 8:01 am

I'll be going to Cincinnati in a few weeks. The GCFDA website shows about 27 courses nearby, which is great! I'll only have time to play three or four, so I'm looking for suggestions on which ones not to miss.

Idlewild. Look at Ohio Course thread below for more ideas.

Idlewild is the second best course I've ever played. It should be at the top of your list.

I'd highly recommend Mt Airy in the city and Banklick Woods (in nearby Ky). I have not played Idlewood but hear it is fantastic.

If you haven't mad your trip yet I would say if I would have to play these 3.

1.Idlewild - One of the best tests of disc golf anyplace
2.Mt Airy- nice park, all kinds of shots, par is very good
3. Banklick- lots of dueces, nice woods and elevations changes, creek in play

I live very close to Cincinnati. I often mention that cincinnatidiscgolf.com has pictures of the courses.

Play Idlewild for sure. Ton of variety, long shots few hyzers. Some true par 5's

Banklick and Mt Airy are good too.

Miami university (Oxford Ohio has a decent one with several unique holes. Many hyzers. On a couple you have to throw through an arch of a walkway bridge. The course is on campus and there are a couple of places to get food.

Harbin is my home course. Hyzers are guarded against on almost every hole. It's an alright course, but not fantastic. I live close enough to ride my bike there.

Are you coming for vacation? Do you need a place to stay?
