Pros:
All portable baskets and temporary tees mean the design can be continuously tweaked to improve the layout with each incarnation of the course. The course is located on a great property with lots of disc golf potential. Holes can be (and on the 3rd incarnation are) very long with copious amounts of space available.
Cons:
Basket quality varies depending on which portables are being used and can result in some lesser quality catching devices.

Baskets placed too close to OB, literally two feet from OB areas limit the putting chances that can be taken. This results in less fun and less scoring opportunities.

No significant elevation in play. No restrooms on site.
Other Thoughts:
Day-of-Course started as the brainchild of Chris. He wanted multiple people to bring out their portable baskets and each person designed their own hole on a certain area of the course. Awards were given to the best holes as voted on by the players. That's what DOC1 was. DOC2 was an evolution based on DOC1 that added alternate tees and cleaned up some of the holes and flow. DOC3 was pretty much all Chris' design and a monster 21 hole layout logging in at 9800'.

Reviews are hard to quantify for this temporary course because the layout can change every time you play it. I've played the second incarnation which was a modified version of the first, and the third incarnation with was completely different. Both courses had a decent fun factor.
