Course Name: O.S.U. Disc Golf Course  -West Campus

1031 Carmack Road  Columbus, Ohio 43210

Description:  This is a nice recreational course tucked into a  bustling urban college campus.  Almost every hole is bordered on at least one side by roads or parking lots  all of which are O.B..  The course is fun with great ambiance and right handed backhanders  should score well here since it can be played in 18 straight hizer shots (sorry lefties..but not the designer's idea). This is also an area with loads of car and pedestrian traffic and will require a great deal of common sense and courtesy on the  part players to keep this facility from becoming a major nuisance.  The course itself is 4554' on the score card which is about 100' longer than I measured it.  The only big discrepancy is hole 17, listed on the sign and card as 231' measures 172', if you throw it 231' you'll be over the fence and O.B..  The tee pads are huge and have the grippiest surface I've ever seen.

Directions:  From either the north or south exit Rte 315 at Lane Ave. and go west to Kenny Rd.; turn left on Kenny and take your first right which is the entrance to West Campus; on your left you will see the Quonset Hut (rounded) type building; this is the Jesse Owens West Tennis Center and the first tee and practice basket are near the entrance to this building which is on the south end. Parking is a tricky issue!  Unless you have some kind of O.S.U. Parking Permit on your car, you are a visitor, and are thus some what limited as to where you can park.  OSU has replaced the meters with Payment Machines which accept cash or cards and print a receipt you place on your dash.  Once you get used to it this is method is more convenient than the old meters.  Good luck with the parking because they patrol this area relentlessly and will ticket you if you're in the wrong place.
