Let 'er Rip!
Pros: Great long drives, mostly open shots. Placement and distance is needed, though not too much accuracy. The concrete tees are a great addition to the course, and make it very fun to play. Many thanks to Greg Morrow, the AU Aquatics director and designer of the course. This course has a nice amount of difficulty, but plenty of 'easy,' long, open drives.
Cons: The course can be hard to navigate for a new player. I don't find this to be an issue since I go to school at Andrews and play on this course VERY frequently.
If you're used to a tightly wooded, accuracy demanding layout such as the course in Niles, MI, you may not like how (relatively) little accuracy this course requires.
Other Thoughts: For those who are not as comfortable with the campus, I am working on creating an accurate map of the course, using GPS readings of tees, baskets, and many of the trees. Cannot say when this will be complete.
In the meantime, check the Hole Tips. I posted several brief descriptions about the holes and common ways to throw them.
Please respect the campus. The course is closed from sundown Friday evening to sundown Saturday evening each week for Sabbath. No smoking, alcohol, or drugs are allowed on the campus or the course.
This course is free, so is this so much to ask?
I'm surprised the University doesn't charge for such a nice course.

Pros: A big pro I would give this course is the variety of the shots. Some baskets are very challenging; while others are very easy. To me this makes for an interesting round. Another plus is that the course is free to play. I played today 8/30 and saw at the very first tee pad a plastic holder that had maps of the course. This will certainly help out quite a bit.
Cons: One thing I do not like is that the course is so spread out. I saw a couple of spots where they could have easily put in a couple of baskets. Also most of the tee pads were a rubber mat with holes. Another con is that unless you play with someone who is familiar with the course it is very hard to navigate since you have to walk though the campus to get to some baskets. There is a map on their website, but it does not exactly match up with anything.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a good course. Especially if you like walking. Because of the size of the course and the length of some of the baskets I would not recommend this course for people who are new to the game.
