Pros: Majestic shots and a beautiful campus! Hole 7 in particular was breathtaking.
Cons: No navigation what-so-ever. Bring a guide or don't go. Bad flow and confusing layout. No tee signs. No benches.
Other Thoughts: I really got the idea that Mars Hill College jammed a disc golf course where it didn't belong. Though quite beautiful, it just doesn't fit. The only signs they did put up were warnings about not hitting people, which leads me to believe this is common. Certain holes (Hole 4 especially) felt like they should just be a path to the next hole. Not a complete waste but disappointing to say the least.

 Some nice holes, but very confusing

Pros: Let me start off by saying that this course has some abosultely great holes. There were a couple that were top notch but it also has a ton of things going against it.

The course is set on a nice little college campus. There is a nice mix of open and wooded holes. The are some huge changes of elevation on this course that make for some great views and unique throws. The course is pretty long and has many holes that you can absolutely bomb on. 18 is made for crushing it downhill.
Cons: -No tee signs. We thought no big deal we will print off the map and be fine. Even with the map we had trouble figuring out what to do. It was pretty hard to find some of the tee pads
-None of the wooded holes had been mowed at all when we played. The weeds were a couple feet high
-The course does not flow. At one point you walk right by a teepad as you leave the woods and have to make a long walk down a hill to another teepad? I have never seen anything like this before. If we didn't have a map telling us this we would have been completely lost and even with the map it was confusing.
-One of the baskets was smashed by a down tree
-There is a ton of side hill walking that is brutal on the ankles. Some of the side hills seemed silly they were so extreme.
-There are several natural teepads mixed in.
Other Thoughts: This course has a ton of potential but needs a lot of work. There are some really great holes. Those holes make it worth playing if you are in the area. The flow and overdesign is just not put together very well though.
