Pros: Located on a college campus and course plays on a heavily wooded are with elevation changes. There are a few holes that you throw from the top of the hill and just let it fly. Fun to watch. The Pine trees and other bushes come into play on nearly every hole and add a lot to the challenge. Some holes are very heavily wooded without a distinct fairway to throw for, but enjoyable non the less. Terrian is rocky, which adds it't own challenge. Large cement teepads are standard and baskets are in good shape. Navigation wasn't too much of a challenge due to the fact that the baskets are placed closely to the nest teepad. Fair amount of shorter holes that are either a slight hyzer/anhyzer that makes birdies a possiblity on several holes. No hole is very difficult but the challenge is there for the other holes. Though it is on a college campus, it is somewhat isolated so other people are not a factor in your teeshots.
Cons: First off, I am reviewing essentially a 12 hole course. The course is part of an older course on campus that is "temporarily" placed due to construction. If and when it will join up to the rest of the newer course has yet to be decided. Finding this course was very frustrating and there is no parking avialable unless you have a special parking permit. Some of the signs on the holes are a little worn and I believe they don't show the location of the next teepad. Enough trash on the course that I noticed it as an eyesore. Construction is still going on around the site. Single teepads with a few holes having multiple pin placements, but not on every hole.
Other Thoughts: I was very frustrated in finding this course and parking issues, but once I started playing, I rather enjoyed some of the holes. Nice tall pine trees, cool mountain air and a little secluded from campus made for a good round. I rated this course on the 12 hoels design that is currently in place. You play an additional required holes for the full 18. Hopefuly the construction will end soon and they go back and reinstall this course as it should be. Then it deserves to be re-reviewed, but not sure when to expect that. If I was a student living on campus, this would be a place I would spend a lot of time playing at. If you want a complete course, Thorpe park about 1.5 miles away or McPherson Park about 2 miles away are both incredible courses that should not be passed up.
