Pros: The course plays through a flat, wooded piece of property on a college campus. The area is dedicated to disc golf, so there isn't any interference with non disc golfers, and you get a nice feeling of seclusion. The holes play very technical, with tight fairways and pretty good punishment for errant shots, with thick woods and some underbrush off the fairways. There are concrete tees with basic signs on all holes, and discatchers in decent shape. Unlike many college courses, the course parking lot doesn't require a permit so parking is easy.
Cons: The course is very flat, and in the A positions the holes are all very similar in length. This makes for a round that feels really repetitive, and doesn't push you to make different disc and shot choices. I threw a new putter or a broken in putter on nearly every hole. The tee pads were a little small, and raised above ground level, making for awkward approach and follow through on tee shots. There was a lot of vandalism of baskets and tee signs, and a good amount of trash in the woods, which takes away from the nice atmosphere of the course.
Other Thoughts: It's great that the college has a course on campus, it's a great exposure for the sport, and hopefully introduces lots of new players. Though the rough can be a little thick, it's not very long so I don't think it would be too terribly frustrating to a newer player. More experienced throwers won't find much challenge, it really feels like the same three holes over and over.
