Pros: I can only image that when daylights savings hits and the temperatures climb that this course is unplayable due to all the students lounging around. The place was quite beautiful! Lush grass, rolling hills, huge cedars and fir trees (I think they are fir). Plus a scenic little brook running through it.
There's also some nice grip-and-rip (for us short armed dudes) and some tricky uphill/downhill shots. Not anything we were expecting.
Now, hole 1 and it's lenght of 85' was what I expected. hole 2 is a tricky hzyer shot or 'take the short gap and hope to poke throught the trees.
Hole 3 was a short down hill putter//midrang, but with a sidewalk behind it. We never found the #4 tee markers, think they had been pulled up, but found where folks were playing from. starting with #4, it's basically up hill/ downhill (it's not a big piece of land) with hole 9 being probably 400+, so finally a true grip and rip.
Cons: For what this is, none really. Was a tad confusing to navigate with all the baskets within sight.
Other Thoughts: Might want to bring a picnic basket and blanket. The fairways were just that lush.

Wofford College DGC
- Beautifully landscaped college campus setting
- The manicured grass will make you want to play barefoot
- Fairly open but lots of trees to make you shape your shots
- Excellent use of the available space
- Nice rolling elevation on every hole
- Simple PVC pipes denoting the tee pads make the course layout easy to follow
- Shiny new Discatcher baskets
- No amenities such as benches, baskets, tee pads or tee signs
- #7 and #8 fairways cross over one another
- Looks like there would be lots of conflicts with pedestrians and limited parking when school is in session
- Numerous cedar trees that will eat your discs (I actually like this hazard even though I lost my favorite driver)
Other Thoughts: Many on-campus disc golf courses are hastily thrown together and present little challenge or enjoyment. This is not the case at Wofford College. First off, the course plays through a beautifully landscaped setting that feels more like a botanical garden than a disc golf course. I can't explain how it is to play on a lush green carpet of manicured grass. The tee pads are natural and are denoted by a pair of PVC pipes (one with the hole number, one with the par). There is no rough to speak of, although several well positioned trees--including disc-eating cedars--will make you think before you throw. The posted pars seem way high, but that aside, there is enough challenge here to make for an enjoyable quick round. I would love to have a course like this in my local area.
