Course Name: Horns Hill Park Disc Golf Course 

1550 Horns Hill Rd NE  Newark, Ohio 43055

Description:
This course just opened to the public (~4/15/09). It is located in a very old city park built on the top of a large hill. The course features both blue (long) and white (short) tees on most holes and is relatively short even from the blue tees.  It offers a nice balance of open and wooded holes with significant elevation changes for Central Ohio.  The park road is in play on many holes and there are many fences which will likely lead to lots of OB which will increase difficulty exponentially!  The park has a lot going on with two really interesting stone shelter houses dating from the 1930's, three radio towers, several large water tanks, a race track for radio controlled cars, and many beautiful vistas. This is a choice site for a disc golf course! 

It has been reported that this park closes in the winter ~Nov-Feb
(probably a safety issue due to the steep roads and snow/ice)
