Interesting but potentially dangerous
1 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Once hole #1 was located it was fairly easy to navigate, with most tees within 50 feet of previous basket.
Good mix of hole distances.
Obstacles on every hole requiring shot shaping.
Close to the highway, can be played quickly.
Cons: Tee markers were only about a foot apart.
Could not find #2 tee markers (probably removed).
Definitely dangerous for anyone walking on the paths or strolling across the grass, or potentially even parking in the lots.
#9 tee markers were reversed.
Other Thoughts: I played it late on a friday afternoon with almost nobody on campus so conflicts were non-existent, but the potential was definitely there.

Well, its convenient on campus
Pros: On campus location, convenient for the students. Right off the highway, convenient for a quick round. All holes are in the open, so short, quick rounds.
#8 is a decent hole, thick woods on the right, have to shape around large trees in the fairway.
Cons: Baskets are portable (anchored down, but some were wobbly) and mostly are single chained, had a couple of spit outs. Tees are a little tough to find, numbered stones in the ground. Posts would have been easier to spot, from the previous basket. (I never did find #6 tee.) A couple of the baskets are in places that could easily conflicts with students, right next to a picnic table, very near a landscaped garden that probably stays busy.
#7 is a particularly bad design, the "fairway" is a campus drive (that probably doesn't get too much traffic) lined on both sides by wooden fences. I guess they did this to avoid going through the woods.
Other Thoughts: If this part of the campus doesn't have too many students hanging out, it could be OK, but lot's of chances for conflicts. Still, it would be nice to have a course on campus, I'll give them credit for keeping it up.

Pros: Let me think.......
Cons: Hard to navigate without a map
(never did find #9 tee)
Short for experienced players
(this could be a "Pro" for beginners)
Other Thoughts: However, I did like this course. Seven was fun with it's throw down a campus street. The landscaping is pretty and the course designer(s) seemed to do the best possible job given the terrain. Thanks to the college for letting us non-students play.
