Pros: Usually pretty well kept, being as it is on a college campus. It has a variety of holes, some being wide open and others having several trees as obstacles. The short distances make if very good for beginners or to practice on. There are 2 tee pads per hole, but only 1 pin location, turning this course into and 18 hole course instead of 9. There are opportunities to use several types of shots on this course. Only once have I ever encountered another group playing when I was, so it goes pretty quickly and you can play at your own pace.
Cons: No maps. Tee boxes are just plank of wood and some are even spray painted on the grass (a tee box on hole 1 and hole 6). No signs for distance to pin. My first time through we had to walk the course first to try and find where all the holes were.
Other Thoughts: Decent and fun course for a nice casual playthrough. I play it quite often, but only because it is so close to my house. If you're coming to the KC area to hit up disc golf courses, you wouldn't miss much by skipping this one.

Pros: I thought this little course was actually pretty fun. Low ceiling on many holes made it fun. Forced to mix up your drives using RHFH, roller, anhyzer, etc. Played in sporadic rain and found all 18 tees relatively easily because they have been recently marked. All were spray painted bright orange with orange mini-flags, like the kind they use to mark buried utility lines. (Actually some were utility markers, some were Discraft Ace Race markers.) While some tees do not significantly change the hole (#2), other tees make it a significantly different hole requiring a different driver and/or throw.

The thing that I enjoyed the most was how neat this small campus was. While I'm not Catholic, I found the various statues, small gardens, cemetery, brick road with stone curbs and water fountain pretty neat. Some of the buildings are gorgeous.

A few garbage cans, one port-a-potty on hole 6.
Cons: If the grass wasn't recently mowed, or the tees recently painted, finding the tees could be very frustrating.
At first, when teeing off at Hole 1, I wasn't expecting much. Hole 2 isn't a whole lot better, but each subsequent hole became much more interesting.
Other Thoughts: For me, this is a 45 minute drive. I plan on driving back again to play this course and probably will take some newer players with me, then hit up the local brewpub, High Noon Saloon.
