Tiny Ace Run course
3 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: Really nice blue powder coated DGA baskets here, that catch really well.
Great course for beginners, as it's mostly wide open, with just a touch of elevation on a few of the shots.
Ace runs abound....meaning that every hole is basically an ace run, with just a couple possible trouble areas. If you sail hole 1, there's some shule/drop off behind it. Hole 8 has a field next to it that could make searching for discs difficult. With that said, it's not inconceivable that you could score better than -9 here.
The rubber tees were nice, and in good repair. They could use a bit of leveling, but overall not too shabby.
Cons: Super short...although you wouldn't know it from the tee signs. They're laughably wrong, but it really isn't an issue, as every hole is easy to figure out.
Navigation isn't quite as intuitive as you'd think for 9 holes in a field, but it's nothing that takes a ton of time to figure out.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is a "bagged and tagged" course. Not much here will make you want to play it over and over. I do use it for warming up before tournaments at Riverside....nobody goes here, so it makes a perfect arm warming spot.
If I went to school here, I'd definitely get out and sneak in a couple 9's, just out of convenience.

Pros: The course plays through a small grassy field with some rolling hills. Several holes have minor elevation changes, adding a little bit of challenge and variety. There is some distance variation on the open holes, from short ace runs to one around 300'. Two holes play in the woods, both offering short and tight tunnel shots with rough that's thick enough to punish you on an errant shot. There are small rubber mats that are adequate tees for most of the holes, and number plates at the tees to help with navigation.
Cons: The tees are lumpy and not level, not a huge deal but it's a little annoying. The wooded holes are so short they don't offer much challenge, and the other 7 shots are completely wide open and not long enough to challenge most players. Two of the holes bring an unmoved field into play, it looked like a recipe for frustration for the newer players this course is designed toward. Navigation is a little funky, with several tees and baskets in close proximity. This could also be a safety issue with multiple groups playing at the same time.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find this course very approachable, and it offers a quick and non-punitive intro to the sport. More experienced players won't find any real challenge here, and not enough variety to make it worth going out of their way to play. I like seeing beginner friendly courses on campuses like this, it's a good way to introduce new players. That said, my rating still reflects how this course stacks up to the others I've played, I try to rate every course on the same scale and this one just doesn't have enough interest to rate highly for me personally.
