Yep, in terms of length, you'll find a lot of birdie opportunities, and not so many where you know going in that you're shooting for a three. It's not technical, but I think you'll still enjoy an occasional play there. Suddenly, I'm thinking it feels a little like a slightly shorter Harbin without the long grass or the mud, if that makes sense. And I'd say the knolls make the 'greens' more interesting, in a way. Fun but not grueling elevations, a lot of openness (which means windy days might get interesting).

PS: I apologize for going already without ya, bud. Felt a little guilty about that, but being on summer schedule, and having one dry day to go check it out, I jumped at the chance...

Hope it's OK, since that's vital info, but there is a section called 'Course Condition Updates' at DGCR where you can let folks know if a course is muddy, a hole is unplayable, etc. I went ahead and let folks know that schedule on there, too.

I am going to this course this weekend (7/19/2014) whether it is ready or not! Looks ready by the pictures someone took on dgcoursereview.com (why are pictures there always from overcast days??). Course looks fun. I am going to bring my dog too cause she's my frisbee finder in training.

It's ready for play, and a lot of fun.

I apologize for the pics (crappy camera), but didn't you know that Cincinnati is kind of the anti-SanDiego? It's always cloudy. And when it's not, we keep it on the down low, and enjoy it all ourselves!

ps: just an fyi...if your a tournament player, or want to meet the local club folks, we have a sanctioned event at Mt. Airy the 19th.

I got a chance to play this course this weekend. I had fun and the course is a great addition to my circuit. I like the terrain variation. It was as expected for a golf course renovation.

Hole #16 worst hole hands down. First, it was hard to find from Hole #15. But worse, it is a very dangerous hole as it stands. You have to throw it between two pairs of mando trees but the tee pad is so close to the trees that a backhander has to be very very aware of his follow thru. I think this hole needs to be revisited somehow.

I would suggest a shorter hole there. After coming out of Hole 15 (a 450 ft challenging par 3 hole) why not have a nice par 2 that can be aced? I don't know what are your thoughts?

Also, what if we could get some tall natural grasses for the sand traps (kinda like Heritage)?

Also, it would be nice if hole #1 had some trees in bounds behind it. It is a surprisingly punishing start hole. I saw a group spend an hour there to climb the fence and look for the first discs they threw of the day. Of course we would only have to wait twenty years to see the fruit of this effort...

I try to throw an overstable fairway on this hole on a huge hyzer bomb route. it makes it so much safer and no way i am looking for a disc on the first hole. :)

After witnessing some other peoples misfortunes there, I played it safe with an over-stable heavy disc also. Later on, I came back and tried a roller which kinda worked since the fence make a roller "safe".

You stated Hole 16 was dangerous, hole 1 was punishing, and want to incorporate Heritage's design into this course.  You sir must turn in your man card!

The course is not finished.  The tee for #16 is currently dirt therefore not complete.  Eventually it will be concrete and it will be a safe distance from the trees.  #1 was designed that way for a reason(challenge your skill and nerves) and no trees will be planted behind the basket.  Trees will be planted eventually throughout the course though.

Great to hear! I can appreciate #1 as a challenge and I was just offering what I thought might be constructive criticism. I think you did a great job with the canvas you were given. Thanks for all your hard work on this course. If you need help planting those trees I would be glad to help. Also, if you are looking for trees (within Cincinnati/Hamilton County) I might have some ideas who to ask.

Can we do glow at Dunham or is the park locked up at night during Wed, Thu, Sat, Sun?

The park director is checking on it. Liability and all that. He likes the idea though.

TUESDAY - 9 - 5
WEDNESDAY 5:45 - DUSK(4 weeks)
FRIDAY 12 - 6

They discussed the idea for glow golf. Will know more later today.

The sign out in front of course says that Archery is closed for the season. Additionally, the course is green, mowed nice, and looking great!
