Eh. Just eh.
Pros: Hole 8 is really quite pretty, by far the best hole on the course. The longest of the nine, you tee off from the top of a hill and over a valley which has a small bit of marsh-type area off to the side. It is not uncommon to see deer grazing in the middle of the hole. You are also fairly close to the road, which offers a tempting OB. Overall, a very well maintained course.
Cons: To be quite honest, some of the holes are just stupid. It is not clear how much thought was really given to placements of tees and baskets. Otherwise, holes tend to be fairly short, and lack variety.
The course wraps around two of SIUE's residence halls, and are even incorporated as an obstacle on one hole...a hyzer shot into a courtyard type area surrounded by windows. With that much glass around, accidents...especially for newer players are bound to happen resulting in broken glass or at the very least some very freaked out freshmen. Either way, not the best scenario to help grow the sport.
Hole 1 and 9 are nowhere near each other either, so be prepared to hike back to the parking lot after your round. Parking in general is also a bit of an issue, as the nearest parking is actually for the SIUE residence hall, and without a proper parking tag, visitors may get ticketed.
Other Thoughts: This campus is absolutely beautiful with tons of unused land. Why they chose to design such a halfassed course in this particular location is beyond me.
