Pros:
About 2/3rds of the holes were wooded, 1/3rd relatively open. Nice blending of left/right/straight and up/down,/flat shots. Signs with distance and hole diagram at every hole but #1. Easy-to-see baskets. Nice views from top of hill.
Cons:
Single basket, single teepad, which were narrow, short, worn. A few of the wooded holes were bordereline as being the close-your-eyes-and-hope/random effect type. Nearly-invisible remnant of barbed-wire fence to left of #13 basket - I plowed right into it! :-(
Other Thoughts:
Distance-wise, the lengths of the wooded holes were primarily in the upper 100s to mid 200s range. The more open holes were in the upper 200s to upper 300s range.

To find the parking lot closest to tee #1/basket #18, follow the entrance road as it bends right, then passing Doyle House on your left and nearly passing the entire football field on your right. As the road bends right again, instead go straight and up a small paved driveway. You'll see a paved lot and white sheet metal building in front and to the right, a small gravel parking lot hard to the left, and a small graveled opening slightly to your left - take this opening to another gravel parking lot, park there, and find tee #1 slightly up the hill.

The course is fairly easy to follow and has a natural flow to it, with one exception: after completing hole #10, walk up the hill towards a tee at the top, which is actually #14. About 1/3rd way up the hill, there will be an opening to a path on your left - that will lead you to holes 11-13. There will be some signs leading you towards the farther-apart holes, like 15 to 16.

Longer and more challenging the the other college courses I've played to date.
