where is the pin?
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Well its a disc golf course so thats definately a pro! Now about the course....I will have to say that I was rather surprised that a college campus would dedicate this much property to a disc golf course.... the course is fun but not too difficult so anyone could play it... lthough its only fourteen holes they are a good fourteen holes ranging from 250 to 450 feet long and go from open field to over the creek shots and even some woods holes... I liked how some of the brush was cut out to place pins...very well hidden but definitely birdieable with a great shot!
Cons: The baseball field construction has 3 of the holes 6 7 and 8 cut out but they are still playable...meaning the signs and tee pads are there just no baskets....I still played the wholes and threw to where the baskets would be as shown on the tee signs...
Other Thoughts: Worth taking an hour or so and playing if youre driving through!

hole 12 is easy one of all. throw straight but thru bigh tree.
hole 13 is brutal bec over 400 feet. it said par 3 but it deserve a par 4. then last hole 14 is straight ahead and slightly right. avoid the tree in front u on ur right.

Pros: Nice tee signs and pads. Solid baskets. Nice design with the area they had to work with. Lots of variety. Good mix of short/long/tight/open. Helpful locals. Very scenic campus.
Cons: Kind of hard to find.
Other Thoughts: Lots of other people on course. Shot hard in the rough on 2 trying to avoid 2 people laying in the fairway. An unavoidable problem and not a big deal really. I enjoyed this course but probably won't make a special trip to come back.

Nice Place...to visit.
Pros: Well Maintained.
Very Nice People!
Changes in elevation.
Cons: A lot of right turns.
Other Thoughts: Enjoyed it though the temp hit 100 while I was there...being from Florida that was not too bad. The hills did make it challenging for me. I met several students pruning and keeping the area immaculate. The greens are very wide open.

Pros: Fairways are well-kept.
Baskets are nice.
Though many of the shots are straight-on tunnel shots, the rough is very punishing. Lots of underbrush, low-hanging branches and some pricker vines. I lost a disc that landed only a couple feet into the rough.
Cons: Signs for each hole are cemented 6" into corner of the tee box, which creates some very awkward steps into the toss.
The course weaves in and out of a number of heavily used tennis courts, soccer fields, a baseball diamond, some walking paths and a running track.
For some reason, they decided to place a picnic table next to a couple of the pins. So if there are any students out and about, you may find yourself skipping some holes to avoid them.
I ended up chasing a couple around the last 5 holes of the course, as they moved from bench to bench to avoid me.
Other Thoughts: Be careful on hole 8. The rough off to the right has some rusty barbed wire hiding in the brush.

Home in Happy Valley
Pros: * Beautiful setting with good use of available resources
* Several wide open holes with a few in the woods
* Usually not crowded
* New INNOVA baskets
Cons: * No teepads
* Course tricky to navigate for first-timers
* The fairway for Hole #1 is in between the tennis courts, so be careful throwing if the courts are in use!
* The brush / woods on Holes #2-4 contain some thornbushes and are pretty difficult to manage if your disc goes in there. Wear long pants if you tend to veer off course.
Other Thoughts: ***** UPDATE (7-17-09) ******
* Plans are being made to put in teepads with signs in the near future. There is also the potential for additional holes in the near future.
* The disc golf course is not for student or faculty use only as the above post says -- those signs apply to use of the tennis courts.
* The course is not closed on Saturday.
* If you found well-worn dirt spots, you are probably in the correct location of the "teepads"
* A water fountain is located beyond Hole #9 past the jogging track.
A quick analysis of the holes:
Hole One: Tee is on the sidewalk at the corner of the tennis court. The basket resides on a hill, which makes "going for" any putt longer than 20 feet an adventure, as your disc could easily roll down the hill. It's advised to throw your drive below the basket. I hate playing like a sissy and laying up for par, but I usually regret my decision to go for the birdie if I'm too far away.
Hole Two: A huge anhyzer required to get to the basket. Avoid the woods / shrubbery on the right at all costs -- hit the deep stuff on your drive and you can expect a bogey. The basket is located on a nice flat area.
Hole Three: Another anhyzer required to get near the basket. Beware of the brush on the right side of the fairway. Also, watch out for the stream located just beyond the basket.
Hole Four: Tee located alongside the tennis courts. Another anhyzer required to reach the mouth of the opening in the woods. While the hole isn't too long, an accurate drive is essential to have a shot at birdie.
Hole Five: One of the best holes on the course. Trees guard the basket, which is located just past the stream. Birdie is possible if you keep your disc dry.
Hole Six: Tee is a short walk from the basket on #5 -- location is beyond the center field fence of the nearby softball field. Aim right with your hyzer and make sure your drive doesn't go left.
Hole Seven: One of the shorter holes on the course isn't a gimme. Hitting the entrance into the woods necessary to make par. The area behind the basket is guarded by trees and a hill, so there's low risk for being aggressive on your putt if you keep it straight.
Hole Eight: Most likely hole for birdie. Avoid the trees on the left and the woods on the right and you're sitting pretty.
Hole Nine: Longest hole on the course. Keep your drive in the fairway and you're fine.
