I will be in Cinnci and have Sun 7/22 open and am looking for a good course to play and anyone to play. I am staying in what looks like Springville/North Cinnci according to the map, zip code 45241. Can someone give me some advice? Any chance an organized game is happening anywhere? I am missing the SN Double Champ in my home city, B'Ham AL this same weekend and want to play. I will have a portable nav system and am willing to drive some to a good course. Personally I prefer challenging courses, technical/tight/long versus just open. I'm a 927 player. Thanks.

Mt. Airy ... 75 south to 74 west .. Exit Colerain Ave... Turn left off of exit... Follow up hill to Mt. Airy forest on left.... aprox 1.5 - 2.0 miles from exit. If you shoot under 60 you can hang.

If your really feeling frisky and have 3 or 4 hours to kill .. I would suggest Idlewild .. its by far the most challenging course in the Tri-state. Top 10 in country I would say. Pack yourself a lunch .. its LOOONNNG AND TIIIGHT.

Sweet. I love the number being thrown down, thanks 13ruce, I'll try to remember to post results.

Edit after seeing your second post:
Idlewood looks like its only about 45 minutes away, I'll go for it. Can't pass up "Top 10 in the country" Whats a good score here? What is par? 54?

<70 is pro level at Idlewild. Mt. Airy is very challenging as well with a good mix of shots needed. Idlewild just makes you think about every shot where Mt. Airy has a few breathable holes. If you want to see another local favorite Banklick in Independence, KY-24 holes with about 1/3 open but with elevation changes that makes it a challenge. Tight wooded course with elevation try Monroe Community. A lot of folks will be out of town at the Brent Hembrick in Columbus but just post here to find willing players.

Both Mt. Airy and Idlewild are championship level courses. Mt. Airy is the "hardest" course in the greater Cincy area. It's a par 54, and even 1 under is an excellent pro score there.

Idlewild is a true par 72 course (from the longs). It's probably the "best" course in greater Cincy, and best taken care of, by far. A real treat if you can make it down there. Full of par 4's and 5's, good players can still get several strokes under par if they're patient, and accurate. Check the Courses section of this website for directions, hole distances, and even pictures. Play time is 3-4 hours from the longs, 30 minutes less from the short placements.

Idlewild is definately a course one should experience if they have the opportunity. That said, Mt. Airy is my home course and very very cool. Depending on how much time you have that day, getting out to Idlewild early and playing mt. airy on the way back is not out of the question. It also might be nice to play Idlewild early to beat the afternoon heat if it happens to be hot that day. Maybe take a little break, and play Mt Airy in the afternoon. Thats alot of disc golf, alot of walking, and two challenging courses, but these courses are both worth it i think. Either way, I hope you enjoy, this is a great area for disc golf. We are lucky!

Thomas,

Give me a call. I might be able to make it out on Saturday. I live in Fairfield which is right down the road (15 minutes from Springdale). They call me Bigboy or John. My cell is 513-520-1432. I am not going up to play the Hambrick that weekend. We can cruise down to Idlewild, it is about 45 minutes away from Springdale/Fairfield.

Well I made it out to Mt Airy this afternoon and shot a 61, 3 5's and 1 bogey, no birgies. Missed a couple opportunities here, missed acing It was a really I think it is, short down hill towards a parking area by about inches over the top, then missed the come back. Very nice course, really liked the woods and the challenges. Feel pretty good I stayed out of the woods all day and hit very little but 3 doubles add up quick with no birdies. Thanks for stearing me in the right direction 13ruce.

I will be out at Idlewild Sun.

Thanks to Brad for showing me around. I appreciate his and everyone elses advice. I shot a 72 at Idlewild and feel real good about it. What a great course. I have never played a true par 72 with landing area's etc. We also played Monroe, just a casual round. I'll be back at Idlewild next time I am in town.
