Interesting yet Frusterating

Pros: Tee signs help to locate the tee. good use of the trees that were available. Love that the obstacle course was used as part of the disc golf course. The grass is kept short.
-It is tough to find the beginning of the course. There are not any good directions to locate the beginning.
-There are a few holes that a particularly difficult to find such as #5 and #11.
-Hole 11 and 12's baskets seem to be switched, because on twelves tee, basket 12 is 20 feet away from the tee, and it is in the way of where you are supposed to throw, which ends up being basket 11.
-Hole 5 during during baseball games may not be playable. As a RHBH thrower I still did not feel comfortable throwing that hole during a baseball game.
-The area of holes 5-7 can be pretty soggy after a rain or even after watering, so watch out for marshy areas around there.
-Hole 8 playes next to a busy road be careful when throwing and retreiving discs that go in the street.
some tee signs placed strangely/facing wrong way
- Nowhere to throw trash. As a result the campus has a lot of litter
Other Thoughts: I enjoy seeing the personality of this course. You get a good look at the college campus as you play. You may be able to use bathrooms in one of the facilities but I have never tried, if not you might be in for a wait.

A lot of searching
Pros: The grass was very nice and green. I played on a Sunday before Spring Break so there weren't any college kids around and we had a nice peaceful round. There were some trees on a lot of holes that made them a little more challenging and there were some fun short holes (fun for us short throwers who usually can't reach the basket). It had tee signs which were a little helpful, and DGA baskets with numbers on them which was very helpful. (I hate it when there are no numbers on the baskets!)
Cons: It was very difficult to find some tee signs because some of the walks between holes are very long. Then even when you did find it, the sign was usually facing the wrong way and the map was sometimes crooked so it wasn't always easy to find the correct basket. There were also too many short holes (under 300) and not enough longer holes. Some holes go right through the middle of the campus which might not be good for dg players during busy school hours. There were no tee pads but that's not a big deal.
Other Thoughts: Holes 14, 15, 16 go through and around a police training obstacle course so those holes might not be playable if they are out training. Those holes had wooden boards in the ground marking tee pads. On tees near sidewalks, there were red and yellow squares painted to indicate the direction of the next hole. The course was decent, fun, but just too many short holes and it would be difficult for first time players because of the hard to find tee signs. Innovadude's directions help a lot except #5 is by a baseball field instead of a football field, and quite some distance from the #4 basket. #13 basket is behind a bunch of bushes and you can't see it from the tee sign. Also, #14 sign was missing but the pole and tee pad was there. Unlike most courses, the back nine was easier than the front nine - only 2 holes over 300.

Poor directions and hard to navigate, but worth it if you're nearby.
Pros: Solid course design, using as much of the available obstacles as possible, tightly packed on a community college campus. Co-eds. OB roads, no lost disc potential, no water hazard. It uses some paths to make cement tees for many holes, grass on the rest. Has some decent length, more than couple holes need a driver. Free to play, I assume free parking too didn't see any signs saying permit only. Has signs.
Cons: Hard to find, had NO directions listed on how to get to the city, find the campus, or the course itself! WHY DO PEOPLE DO THAT? Also hard to navigate, several long walks between holes with no clue where to go.
Other Thoughts: It is navigable however, since it's a small area the holes could possible be, all you have to do is search for a few minutes.
#1 by Student Union at southern entrance to campus off of HWY-156 across from the church.
#3- to right of middle of #'2 fairway, down a few buildings.
#5 - to right after #4, along road on side of football practice area.
#11- to left back into middle of campus after #10.
