Pros: Good for practicing driver. Challenging.
Cons: Extremely long. One hole took me 3 throws with my driver to get reasonably close to the basket. A few holes, maybe 13-16?, were hard to find. Course layout is a little confusing. Impossible to see hole number on baskets from a distance and i even have perfect vision.
Other Thoughts: They could potentially shorten a couple holes and add a couple more. With some basket moving they could make that a 21 or 22 hole course with the same total distance as originally.

Pros: This course does about everything a course can do. It plays between buildings, along a creek, out in a huge field, into the woods, behind a huge hill covered in kudzu, and back again. Some open holes you absolutely have to crank it, while other holes force you to play a precision game.

#4 is a great hole, shooting down a row of trees with a shallow (yet still OB) river running to your right. It feels great to fly out over it and fade back into the fairway.

#8 has one of the best pin placements I've ever seen. 5 feet to the right is OB and to the left, a massive shield of trees. A very tricky and fun approach shot.
Cons: This course is a major disc eater. You have the nature conservancy just feet away from the pin on 3 holes, so think twice about going for that birdie. I've gone in there 3 times, and thankfully found my disc each time, but I doubt everyone is so lucky. It was very poor design to place the pin so close to the weeds every time they were in play. There is also massive kudzu to both the right and left on hole 14.

A few holes feel pretty uninspired. 7, 9, 10, and 16 are all pretty much just open field. The last few holes feel like a bit of a let down after seeing what the course is capable of.
Other Thoughts: This course is a mixture of good and bad. The nature conservancy is very annoying, but would probably be less so if 3 holes weren't 5 feet away from it. Although #8 pulls it off interestingly, #7 and #9 are just a pain and pretty boring too.

It seems like you could put a cool hole in on the walk between 14 and 15. A short shot where you went across the creek to the pavilion area would be awesome.

Pros: Very pretty as it winds through campus. Variety of distances and some doglegs. Receives very little play yet well groomed.
Cons: Long. Very few opportunities for even a deuce.
Other Thoughts: Needs some shorter teeing areas as not everyone can blast it 325+
