Pros: - Nice rubber pads at each hole
- Nicely kept up grass and course as a hole
- Challenging left and right curves on various holes as well as some long holes
- signs at each hole telling you the distance and the curve of the hole
- Great for beginners
Cons: - Construction has taken hole 2 and 4 out of play as well as making hole 5 difficult to play
- Some holes play around the colleges sporting fields
- There is a swing set that could be a hazard at hole 2
Other Thoughts: Very good course that is kept up and great for beginners

RHBH heaven/RHFH hell
Pros: Very nice, well maintained college campus course.
Nice concrete or rubber mat tees (only one tee pad missing, number 10 I think).
Great signage, easy to navigate, make that super easy to navigate.
nice wooded holes with a good variety of open and tight.
Cons: The number one complaint against the design of this course is that there are far more dogleg to the left holes than dogleg to the right. From memory I count only two doglegs to the right and seven to the left with the rest of the holes being dead straight. No course should give such a huge advantage to left or right handers (or forehand vs. backhand). I am saying this as a RHBH player so this course favored my throw, but I missed being forced to turnover my shots or use forehand.
My next complaint is more a matter of opinion--I am disappointed that there were no shots over the water. I think water shots add a lot of fun to a course, but I understand that a campus course like this is probably designed to attract new players and add a recreational option for students. Throwing your new $15 disc in a lake is not a good introduction to the sport.
Other Thoughts: Despite one major design flaw this is still a great course. It is well manicured, has great elevation, nice amount of trees. It is on the shorter side--probably intended for newer players.
This is a course that Lyon College should be proud of and Batesville is lucky to have.
