Pros: When you combine the front 9 with the back 9 you get a taste of some extreme variety. The front is very open with a few baskets located on hills. The back 9 is heavily wooded with narrow paths.
Cons: Leave your driver at home...you won't need it. The front 9 is very open and pretty short. The back 9 is short and packed with trees.
The back 9 is almost impossible to find and is difficult to navigate. Tee boxes are hard to find and there is no signage giving you direction.
Other Thoughts: The parking lot splits the front and back 9. The back nine is across the road entering the campus, buried in the woods.
It's a fun little course, but if you are in town for a limited time I would play another course.

Tale of Two Courses
Pros: Very well maintained front 9: reachable, straightforward holes here, with a few on hillsides to challenge your accuracy in putting. A great course for short-range practice and for beginners (front 9). The back 9 is insanely tight and challenging - sometimes there's hardly a clear line: it's that tight.
Cons: The back 9 is forgotten, overgrown, and not marked well. The front 9 gets fairly repetitive for more experienced players. Needs better navigation signs to show where to go next (especially on that back 9).
Other Thoughts: Of all four courses in Tyler, this is the least interesting. Its not awful by any means: you get a chance to work on midrange, but the lack of directions on the back 9 make it arduous.
BTW - hole 10 is across the campus road (not the big street) in the woods.

Back 9 is a work in progress..I hope still in progress
Pros: - Front 9 is clean and well maintained, challenging and fair. Features grassy hills, tight woods shots and co-eds.
- Back 9 will be nice, super tight finesse course.
Cons: - The back 9; very hard to navigate, hole #11 is down a long trail then across a parking lot back into the woods, no signs telling you that. Many holes end with multiple trails and you have to pick 1 and give it a try and hope you picked the right one.
- No course map, scorecard/maps
- #11 basket surrounded by ivy
Other Thoughts: Back 9 just seems either incomplete or neglected. It's not enjoyable, overgrown blocked lines, ivy, hard to follow. Front 9 is fun however.

Excellent for all types
Pros: This is a good course for a beginner and the expert. Your aim is challenged because if you are off you will pay for it dearly. You must use a wide variety of skills. You get everything from hills to grassy fields. It's a really nice place.
Cons: Don't throw your disc in the water, you may not find it. The creek will get stagnant and murky which hides discs well. This is only true on the back 9 where the creek is, especially on hole 12 where the hole is surrounded by the creek.

Pros: Very challenging course offering a variety of shots because of obstacles and extreme slopes. Dual tees are nice. The location is exelent, right on a beautiful campus. Great mix of long shots and shorter holes. Short holes usualy are filled with obstacles such as trees.
Cons: It was hard to figure out where the next tee off box was. There were no directions. Runs right next to a road, which can become a dangerous hazard because of heavy traffic. There were also no score card present to shot the layout of the course.
Other Thoughts: Some holes are completely submerged in trees. Course seemed fairily busy, yet there was no waiting. Nicely groomed course. Flowed well after figuring out the holes.
