Pros: This course is set on a college campus in an area exclusively used for disc golf. It has nice discatchers with a blue band. There's a good variety of hole length. The shot variety is ok. A couple holes force straight shots and you can shape different lines to the basket. Most of the course plays around mature trees. Only a couple holes have underbrush so there shouldn't be much of a problem finding discs.

It appears they're in the process of installing tee pads. Some holes have them and some don't. The ground was flat so I had no problem with the dirt tees. There are two tees on most of the holes.

There's a bulletin board by hole one that has a course map.
Cons: Parking is definitely an issue here. There are only a handful of spots close by and they were all occupied when I was here. This course is on a college campus so I'm sure this is a non-issue to students who can probably walk here.

Hole 5's tee is a bit difficult to find.

Hole 9 isn't anywhere near hole 1, of course this might not be an issue for students who walk here.

The course is almost completely flat, but as I said above they used the available space well.
Other Thoughts: This is a fun, well designed course that uses the available space well. The course is perfect for a college setting; there's little underbrush, two sets of tees and the course is challenging enough to keep your interest and get the college kids coming back for more.

Like most 9 hole courses, I wouldn't travel out of the way to play here unless you're looking to add to your list of played courses.

Pros: well maintained. Met one of the course creators, he seemed to genuinely care about what we thought of the course layout. a lot of long bomb shots, which I like and not a lot of nasty woods shots. I prefer this course over Camp Catalpa in Richmond, KY.
Cons: parking seems to be a problem. no basket #'s or distance info at tee's yet, but im sure they will be added soon. just now seeing the out of bounds details on a few of the holes involving the natural road/path on #6,#7 and #9, these were not obvious to me.
Other Thoughts: I have always parked in the gravel lot next to the wooden cabin even though I have been warned about getting a ticket, however no ticket yet. I expect this to be more of a problem when Berea College starts back in the fall.
