Pros: Beautiful campus grounds, of course well kept. Shot variety for 9 holes. Could be awesome for glow golf.
Cons: If office with info on course is closed then no info is available. Nothing was marked, either tees or objects. Could be crowded with walkers while school is in session.
Other Thoughts: Got to the outdoor office and it was closed no big surprise a saturday during the summer, but there was no info for the taking available outside the office. I lucked out and had brought my camera to take photos for the site. I saw the course map on the counter inside the office and was able to take a picture. The map was vague but fairly detailed so you could get yourself close to were you needed to be. My friend had attended the school so knew his way around a bit and we decided to give it a shot. I was a bit disappointed as object courses in there camo nature are easy to mark with out having to do much. Prospect park in brookland is an awesome example. Other than maybe on the 5th(two spray painted dots on the side walk for a tee) hole with the map we could not locate any signs of course markings. This didn't stop us though. We read the map best we could to get as close as we could to what we thought would be the course and made it up as we went. Here is how we played.

Look at map and be on location and this will make sense.
1 - Edge of the far side of the road to the middle flag pole.
2 - grass just on the inside of the sidewalk to the red tree slightly to the right in the middle of the field.
3 - From the shade of the big tree across the side walk to the low tree before the big old tree .
4 - From the shade of the big tree threw the clearing over the creek to the little barn or the light pole next two it.
5 - Find dots on the side walk and throw around the building to the light pole next to the side walk.
6 - from the sidewalk leading to the front door in front of the building and to the light pole around the corner to the left.
7 - from the grass atop the hill down to the light pole next to the road.
8 - from in between the two groups of tees in the middle of the section, up hill to the right flag pole.
9 - in between the left and center flag poles, to the left of the large tree mando, across the street to the large tree near road.

If the office has a description sheet and/or you play with someone that knows the course navigating this course will likely be no problem and you will likely have a great time as the grounds are awesome. Be careful of people and go for it. It would be awesome and easy to mark this course, use sidewalks as tees and spray two dots and a number for the tees then spray a single dot at the base of the object. simple and hardly noticable if your not looking for it. The outdoor office should also leave description sheet outside the office for the taking. If this was done it would be visitor friendly and jump a least a disc.
