Pros: Great little course. Beautiful surroundings include grass, fountains, campus architecture and some decade old trees lining several of the fairways. Due to some notes on DGCR course info, we were worried the course had been pulled.. but this was not the case. I took the whole family and my kids loved the short easy layout. We brought some dragons and hydras (floaters) which were nice because the deep fountain pools play on several holes and my 5 year old can throw pretty wild at times. My two daughters (10 and 13) were a good age for the course and enjoyed seeing campus life up close as we played.
Cons: Don't bother bringing any disc faster than a 5-speed unless you like dead weight in your bag. Short isn't necessarily a bad thing since we could all use plenty of short-game and upshot practice.
Recent campus expansion has impacted this course. Baskets have been moved and tee signs are inexplicably missing (posts remain). Some locals explained to us where to start and finish and the course flows well once you get a starting point.
The holes are SHORT. MAybe 120' average. This course presents a good opportunity to take your wife and kids and just plan on practicing upshots with your driving putter. A fly fishing class was in session on one of the fountains so we had to skip two holes or risk whip-wounds from swirling fly lines.
Other Thoughts: Go west off the roundabout and you will see some of the course on your right. Keep going until you see a sign for visitor parking. Turn right into lot area and you will see another sign for visitor parking indicating left OR right. Go right into a gated guard shack type entrance with a motorized gate-arm. Tell the guard you are a visiting to play disc golf and you will get a premium spot. Then walk south to the course. 1st tee is in the far northeast corner of the fountain area across the sidewalk. (no sign, just a bare post)
