courses on college campuses

How many courses are there on college campuses? Does anyone know of any good examples where the course is on campus? I don't mean just on the college grounds in the woods but actually on campus. I've been approached by a local private college to design and install a course and curious of what works well on a campus. The campus isn't large at all and I can either go with 6 good holes that will cater to different levels or I can install a shorter 9 holes just to give the students something to do between classes. I'm leaning toward the latter. I can fit in 9 holes with avg lengths of 200-220 ft and still do it safely. If anyone has suggestions or experience playing or designing college campus courses I'd love to hear your thoughts.

The only one I've played is
http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=2520#

Played on a summer Sunday when the school was out of session. Navigation is real quirky, but it's rather fun.

It would be unplayable during the school day.

The good thing about a short course is that it can be enjoyed with Frisbees. They still toss Frisbees at college, don't they?

lol I'm not sure if they do or not, been a bit since I've been out of school. But the Director of Residence Life & Counseling Services and the school President are who contacted me. They are all in and will have discs for the students to check out at the student union. I'm thinking if I go with the shorter fun course all the school needs are putters and mids.

Clemson's course is at their recreation area, Y beach, and not on the campus; and yes, there are PLENTY of ultimate disc frisbees thrown at colleges, and a common giveaway from businesses is super-cheap frisbees with whatever their logo and phone number is, so a shorter course would definitely be a good idea.

This one (http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=3081) is near me tho I have never played it primarily due to it's poor rating.

Then of course there is this one (http://www.dgcoursereview.com/course.php?id=322) just south of me.

I played the course on Lawrence Tech here in Michigan. It circles the soccer fields through a small patch of woods and then the back 9 surround the rest of the parking lot and campus....pretty easy course tho.

Old dog I think I've heard of that second course lol. Sadly I don't have that kind of land to work with. This campus is very small

There is a course on the Northern Arizona University campus in Flagstaff. I haven't been up there yet to play it though.
