The Findley State Park course in Wellington, Ohio now provides a very challenging re-designed 18 hole disc golf course 25 minutes west of Medina and 25 minutes east of Norwalk. The new and improved layout (2018/2019) by local players is now the type of course when you finish playing 18, you're going to want to play 18 more to get a few strokes back. Timewise, it takes about 75 minutes with a two-some and about 2 hours for a four-some. The newly positioned holes are strewn about many species of ...

A lot of time and work have been put into this gem of a course since the last time I was out here about 3 years ago. Concrete tees have been added, lines have been established, and signage has been put in. All three of these were truly lacking during my first trek through this course. I could really tell the amount of effort and energy that went into making these changes, and props to Adam and the local crew for their triumph. The course has a great mix of shots, with the majority of holes b ...

Relaxing, quiet, place to play. Very technical, heavily wooded course. More people should come and check out this hidden gem. Relatively new, already has concrete tee pads, benches. If you like Parma, Punderson, Portage Lakes or Massillon, you won't be disappointed.

a B for now give it time to get broken in an some dead wood to fall an this course could quickly become an A ,over all well done not to long but not a pitch an put either, lots to challenge all plays this is a hard course if you dont like trees,as there are trees on all but 2 holes ,with that said the play still seamed pretty well fair from both sides (left or right) so have fun an may your disc fly true.

This place has been re vamped BIG TIME! It went from mediocre to outstanding in my opinion. New design, new tee pads, new feel. Make a trip back out to Findley State Park, you won't be sorry

2019 update: sooooooooooo much work has been done and oh my!!! what. ahoy to play. red short course is what i played when I first came here 2 years ago. the real crown jewel to this place is the lost island course. it is long, challenging, makes you think about placement. it is by far and large the best kept secret that I am willing to tell you. bill, matt, shawn, and shawn jr, and the rest of the crew have made this an outstanding place to play. I cannot recommend this place enough! ...

Best course in northeast Ohio. This place keeps getting better and better. The volunteers are doing an outstanding job. This is a destination course that will attract travelers from all over. Cheers!

Findley State Park now has 18 holes with the original front nine completely revamped. The front nine is much longer and alot more difficult now. Altogether a much different flow and feel to the course. Concrete pads, tee signs and permanent basket placements are all in. Also the Lightning DB-5 baskets have been switched and dimensions are correct. The place is really starting to break in nicely and will only get better with more play. So get out here and throw!

Different elevations and lines call for a variety of shots and discs. Signage was great. Played the red course but will be back to play the other. Great layout throughout a beautiful park. If you are not from the area, I would recommend making the drive. It is worth it!!!

This was one my first courses ever played about 7 years ago. I used to frequent it often but there was a lull where it was getting over grown and lacked re-playable fun. Last year (2017) there were new developments that slowly brought it around, but just played again today for the first time in almost 7 months and damn this course is awesome again. The 2 different layouts make it feel like 2 separate courses. The grounds and fairways are a total night and day difference, the new added holes for ...

I've only played this course once (June this year) and loved the place. Definitely coming back. I understand the course has changed a lot in the last year or so; hopefully those changes will continue. The holes are not overly long but can be technical. There seem to be a fair amount of left to right shots here so lefties and folks that throw good forehands should be comfortable. I can't do either but can throw decent anhyzers so it didn't bother me in the least. Personally,I love the way it sets ...

Easily becoming one of my top favorite courses! 2 different layouts make for 2 different feeling courses. The amount of work and dedication from the local club definitely shows it out there! Already a premier course in the NEO!!!

An absolutely outstanding course. I wouldn't have rated it this highly two years ago, but the work they have put in to make this a challenging course. A wide variety of throws are needed... some let you open up and others are far more technical. Camping available on site, so make a vacation of it and play some great disc golf.

Excellent course with elevation, water, and mature trees. Good navigation, but could benefit from a new orientatation sign/map in the parking lot. We were the only people at the course all morning. Free parking. Drinking fountain and restrooms. Very muddy round. Highly recommend.

Mostly wooded holes with a few open holes as well. Very fun and quite challenging for any level. There are a few real opportunities to ace as well. Great elevation changes. There are a lot of downed trees and debris, but this is a State Park, and you kind of expect that. The signs were great in some areas, but it was a little difficult to find the next tee in other areas. You also have to watch for poison ivy. Overall, this course was very fun to play and definitely worth the trip! :)

The course is a ways out there and there isn't much close to get a bite to eat so pack a lunch. It felt like a cross between Punderson and Portage lakes for those that have played both. It was pretty flat so I didn't get too worn out playing and it has tons of shade for hot sunny days. Some fairways are pretty tight with trees throughout. The layout feels well planned and concrete tees are nice. You have to be on top your game to score low. Very nice place to play.

New in 2017, more subtle updates ongoing, now essentially 2 separate (but overlapping) courses. The Original (Red) has a lot of birdie opportunities but some trouble if you don't hit your lines. 18 holes (or 20 with bonus trek down to the island!). The Lost Island Course (Blue) is more about survival, with some tighter lines and more advanced shots preferred. 18 hole par 61. Thoughtfully designed and constantly maintained courses will provide fun and challenges, the rough is now super easy t ...

They could really use some permanent basket placement and a bit more signage for direction. A few holes had really deep brush fairways making locating drives difficult. Other than that. Loved this course. First time play through and it was a ton of fun.

The best type of woods course: gap city with minimal underbrush. New layout 2018 is something to see. Had the fortune to pick up with Matt and Sean, these dudes are putting in work on this course, Matt does the carvings, Sean chops down trees with his drives. They built a bench on 18 before noon on a Wednesday. Mad props. If you like trying new lines, play this course. The only reason I give it an A- is because they told me they still had work to do.

Challenging and very technical. The new par 4s are a great addition to the course. The trails from one hole to the next with wood chips are great. A little muddy at times but a great course overall. The new prodigy baskets are easy to see and reward great putts. The addition of the new baskets created 2 different layouts for all skill levels to fully enjoy a day of golf. I played punderson last weekend and the new lost island DGC at findley is way better. Great lines to hit and unlike punderson, the LIDGC is a scoreable course.

This is the best disc course in Lorain county. A diamond in the rough. A super tech wooded course. Some of the best locals you'll ever run across. Hell one of my top picks for north east Ohio. Thanx to everyone who helps with up keep. I hope Moe get to get out and experience this gem of a disc golf course.

Lost island disc golf course has become a truly awesome course! The guys have added new baskets and a few new holes that keep the flow of fun going from start to finish. Also there's a pitch and putt course that's back by the campground that is awesome as well. I don't know if that's a secret or not but I found it and it really helped my game!

An incredible amount of work has been done on this course in the last six months. It now offers two different courses to play, with a few holes overlapping both courses. Both are pretty heavily wooded except for a few holes. The Red 18 is the shorter course. The new Lost Island Course (the blues) has greater distance and definitely has some challenging routes. The two courses are easily distinguished from each other. There are clear maps of both courses at the kiosk off of the parking lot. Th ...

Course has undergone a great transformation the last couple years. Two overlapping courses give all skill levels a challenge of some sort. Open shots, tunnels, lefts, rights, and elevation all highlight this course. Can be swampy in the spring but they’ve done a good job with pallet bridges and mulch to limit trenchfoot. Also some wood carvings which detail the course nicely. You can tell they’ve put in a ton of work and continue to do so. I’m really thankful this course isn’t too far from home as it’s become a gem of a place to play in NE Ohio!

What a great new course. The long holes are REALLY long. I'm not sure how the flow works with the blue and red courses being inside one another. Unfortunately I showed up while there was a tournament going on (sorry guys). But the course was in great shape! Will definitely be back for more golf here.

Nice course, quite wet this time of year... Really poor drainage, all the holes on the front seemed to be mud coved with leaves. Back cleared up a little and had some nice designed par 4s.

We camp at Findley State Park a few times a year, so this course is a welcome addition to my stays. Nestled along a decent sized parking lot just inside the main entrance, the course winds around the surrounding woods with only a few truly open holes. Short to medium in length, what it lacks in distance is made up for with honest wooded fairways. Aside from the last hole, I felt all of them offer good lines off the pad. The course is in good shape, not too much undergrowth, and only some minor c ...

I rate this course 2.5 out of 5 stars. - Plenty of parking - The park itself is very large with camping and multiple activities. - There is a bathroom (permanent outhouse) by hole #8’s basket - The entrance is marked with a very nice sign and billboard - The flow could be considered a con, however, the use of available land was done well even though the overall flow can be difficult to follow. Thanks to the accurate course map posted on the billboard, you can navigate your first t ...
