Nice 9-Hole Challenge
Pros: Well maintained with concrete tees, hole signage and some moderate shot variety. Innova Disccatcher baskets in great condition. Course is somewhat lefty-heavy, but that is a refreshing change considering some of the courses in the metro. Still, many lines to be had on most holes and you can challenge yourself try some of the not obvious ones. Saw two other groups during my 2+ hours on the course on one of the few temperate days lately so it doesn't appear to be in the "too popular/busy" category.
Cons: Distance isn't a feature of this course though there are a couple of 300+ holes and one 370+ hole. Some sub-200 ft holes won't challenge experienced players. Very little elevation change, but makes use of what it has, especially around the pins. Hole 8 and 9 play over and around a sidewalk, pavilion, and parking lot just north of a dorm. Could be problematic during school hours. No water to speak of other than the casual variety. A few tees are just a little close to the previous pins and if there was more traffic on the course, you could see a bit of a problem creep up.
Other Thoughts: A fun, quick 9-hole course on the north side of the town. Feels a lot like Will Rogers with the open, wind-friendly fairways and some trees that just seem to be in the right place. Course wasn't busy on a Saturday during the school year but you still need to be aware of pedestrian and vehicle traffic in couple of places. All that said, it's a fun course that gives ample opportunity to work on your mid game, upshots and putting.

No longer a waste of time.
Pros: This is obviously a recently retooled course.
The holes have been reordered from what is depicted on the course homepage.
The baskets are new and every hole will soon have a concrete tee pad, as evidenced by the frames at every hole. The grass areas around the tees are flat and level and provide a good temporary tee surface.
The course was easy to navigate, played well and took advantage of the tree lines to create some challenges.
The campus is trimmed and manicured and makes for a visually appealing course.
Cons: Currently the teepads are incomplete but they will be concrete soon.
There are absolutely no signs at all, but I think that's probably a temporary condition as well. If you take advantage of the course map I uploaded, you won't have any trouble at all navigating this course.
Other Thoughts: I think any previous negative reviews should be reconsidered. It isn't an overly challenging course, but it's certainly not boring either.
All in all this was a pretty decent little course. It's a great addition to a school for student recreation and something I think their student government association will eventually rightly be proud of.
If you're looking to add another course to your total, I'd recommend it without hesitation.
