Pros: -24 holes of tough, technical disc golf. Only one hole is what you would consider open. -Never crowded. -Concrete tees, trash cans, decent amenities. -Big difference in dificulty between the long and short tees. -Beautiful in the fall. -New maintenance person in charge really has great upkeep of the course. It looks beautiful right now. I changed my review from a B- to a B+ because of this. Cons: -Mutant death-eating mosquitos, course is almost unplayable during the la ...

I have only played this course a couple of times (2009 Fly Open and today). The course was in great shape today although the growth just off the fairways is quite thick in many places (shouldn't throw there anyway right?). From the short tees there is not much need for power but accuracy and and shots for tight right hand and left hand turns are required as well as some rather long straight tunnels. Overall very enjoyable course. Well worth the time if you are in the area.

Willow is such an awesome course when the conditions are right and you're not overwhelmed by mosquitoes; which are HUGE out there right now, or flooded out by the thaw after winter. Today though, the course was dry, the bugs weren't too bad and the sun was shining, can't ask for more than that at Willow. Definitely one of the more technical courses in the area, Willow has tight, wooded fairways and thick foliage that will swallow your disc if you're not careful and pay attention to your throws. Then again, as long as you throw in the fairway, you'll have nothing to worry about!

Willow is a great course on an inconvenient plot of land. The land easily floods and breeds swarms of mosquitoes. I really enjoyed the shot variety throughout the course. There were short holes and long holes, tunnel shots and wide open shots, subtle doglegs and 90 degree doglegs both left and right. The rough was usually dense which can be a pro or a con, I just think it demands better shots which adds to the challenge. Great signage throughout the course. Very minimal trash. Overall, it is a very well designed course on land that doesn't drain well enough.

The course is well laid out and the tee zones are maintained.Good for a quiet game, though the overgrowth right around the fairways is terrible. I have lost two discs to this course, because of that very reason. Other than that, though, it's not a bad course.

Long and tight variations, but mostly tight. Some holes require a spotter do to the tunnel dog legs. Bring Spray. Also if you are in the area the better deal is to buy a year Metroparks pass. This will allow you to go to Kensington, and Hudson Mills too. There is a considerable difference between the Long and the Short pads. Pick you poison.

Long tees need to be swept , some covered in leaves an dirt, some with wood chips.

I liked this course, but after a while, the holes seemed repetitive...like I threw the same drive over and over. Plus, it was really loud at times, right by the interstate.

Pros: Great layout, nice variety, well marked, nice tee boxes
Cons: Next to the highway, $5 to park, mosquitoes that could carry a poodle.

Loved this course, would make it my home course if i didn't live 1.5 hours away. Locals were great. Need a bath in DEET before going back though.

Wicked mosquitos from spring through October. Very tight and technical, mostly short control shots. The rough is jungle crazy, keep your shots in bounds!

I personally have enjoyed Willow the most since picking up this sport. Hazards are limited to trees but I would advise being a bit careful in brush as thorn laden foileage grows enough to be pain. Pro's 1.) Course is fairly well maintained. 2.) Tee markers present for every hole, lists distance and overview of fairway 3.) Good mix between control and distance drives 4.) To date all other players have been very courteous. 5.) practice basket present. Con's 1.) a few holes could use " ...

Great fun course. Nice tight fairways make you work for a good score. Good amount of shots in the woods. Usually kept up very good dont see too much trash. It can get very muddy come the spring months which kinda sucks. It also is very flat. Overall one of my favorites.

Last time I player here the bugs ate me alive ! Go in fall - early spring . Fairways are over-grown in. Tight fairways with low ceilings mostly. If you go off the fairway you'll most likely be in thorns and sticker bushes. Layout is good & has balance but, just overgrown.

Nice course! A bit soupy in the wooded area in early spring or after heavy rain, but nothing that can't be managed. Of course, the skeeters are horrific. Bring a lot of repellant.

Good course layout, but MAN is it difficult! The fairway is really narrow and there's poison ivy all over the place. Really easy to lose a disc in too. A good course, but not for beginners.

If you can handle the cold weather, the course is much better to play in December. Wet spots are dried, so no mosquitoes. Leaves have fallen, so finding a disc in the rough is easier. And if you want to stop after 18 holes, it's easier to find your way off the course. Dress warm and don't forget to protect your ears.
