Pros: Good mix of hole types. Predominantly wide open drive shots. Some uphill/downhill drive shots. A couple very technical putt shots will be needed. As another reviewer stated, power drives are definitely rewarded. Not even super power, just anybody who can semi accurately drive 350+ will have a huge edge over the guys in the 300 range.
Cons: Not a full 18 holes. the marching band monopolizes hole 1 a lot for practice. Long walk to the last hole then long walk back to the parking lot by the first hole.
Other Thoughts: This course has a lot to offer to an experienced player just passing through town. Holes require too much power for beginners to even begin to think about parring a hole.

Wide Open with a few Intersting Shots
- Pin Position. What would otherwise be considered a wide-open course becomes much tighter due to the pin positions. Almost every pin position had some form of trouble - 6/12 water, 6/12 OB (concrete sidewalk, parking lot, road, sport facility). 4/12 elevation.
Hole 5 is a gem: 300' extreme downhill with a pin that's 10' in front of a murky pond (I fluffed my putter off the tee and it floated over the basket and into the pond). Hole 11 is a huge flick shot with a pin located 20' from the edge of a deep, crystal clear pool in the river.
- Navigation. Even though the linked map shows 9 holes when this course has 12 holes, navigation was extremely easy due to the distinct 6x6 tee-sign posts.... However, the course follows the flow of the map (except map 9 is actually 12)... you'll see the rest.
- Only 12. I realize that 12 holes are better than no holes... but, I saw plenty of land out there and don't understand why they stopped at 12. Although, I've heard of plans for expansion.
- Hole 12's Location in General. The hole is actually a gem... but, the walk from 11's pin to 12's Tee is ridiculous... and then you shoot away from the car, finish the hole, and then have to turn around and hike your ass back up the fairway and up the hill to your car???
- Natural Tees. When asked to throw 400+ foot drives, anything less than concrete tees do not cut it for me; especially when the tees are muddy and/or on a slick grass field. Also, tee 4 was heavily rooted.
- Potential for Traffic. I played this course during the school vacation and therefore there weren't too many students hanging around in places where there could be a conflict. However, there is the potential for traffic during the semester and peak usage hours.
- Student Life. This course will hopefully expose a lot of kids to the sport, and since it's wide open it should make it conducive to beginners (although, it may be a tad too long).
- Expansion. The school looks like it has a lot of money. I hope the students appreciate and use the course so that the school will expand the course to a full 18.
- Overall we had a good time. It's a wide open course with lots of trouble in terms of OB. Every hole had something that tweaked it from being a regular, open hole into something a little more interesting.
- My Score: Even

Pros: All of the pretty girls is a plus for me (being on campus) I like the creek, Cause I found 3 disc with no names. ( write your name on your disc)
Cons: Really wish that there were more than just 12 holes.
Other Thoughts: You need to skip #1 if the band is on the field
