Pros: The course is mostly short and technical, with dense woods on mostly flat ground. There is a great practice area with a basket at one end of a football field, so there is room to practice approaches and even shorter drives. The course has mostly tighter shots with a couple more open holes that still have some rough if you miss your line. You're not going to lose discs here, but the rough on most holes is enough to cost you strokes for an errant drive.

There is a good mix of hole shapes, especially for a 9 hole course. you'll need to shape some lines through the trees to score well here. Every hole is deuceable for experienced players, but it's easy to mess up and take a 4 on lots of holes too. It's at a great level for college players trying out the sport, with enough challenge to make it interesting, but not too much length or difficulty to frustrate most new players. The baskets are in decent shape, and catch fine. The tees are concrete, and are also in pretty good shape. The signs are basic, but plenty informative with hole distance and layout.
Cons: There are pro tees shown on the hole signs, but they are natural and hard to find. The concrete tees are nicely poured, but are a little small. Some of the baskets are showing a little wear and some rust. There's a long walk from the 9th hole back to the parking lot. A couple holes are a little pinbally, not a huge deal for a recreational course like this but it could make competition a little fluky.
Other Thoughts: This is a great course for college players to have on campus to try out the course. It has enough variety to encourage beginners to try out different shots, but not so much difficulty that it will scare away new players. More experienced throwers won't find it all that challenging, but it's a fun little course to work on your short game. I love seeing courses on college campuses to introduce players to the sport, especially when they're designed well for the intended players.
