Pros: The course plays through mostly open fields on the CSU campus. Most of the holes have a few scattered mature trees to avoid, with several baskets placed close enough to a tree that you have to think a little about your shot placement. There are OB roads and other random strips of concrete to avoid, especially on the back 9, adding a little more shot placement challenge. There are some minor elevation changes throughout the course, and the last couple holes play up and down a medium sized hill for a little bit more fun. There is some distance variety, no real huge distance shots but a nice mix of short and medium length shots.
Cons: The course is very repetitive, especially on the back 9. It feels like you're throwing the same shot over and over, and players with only a hyzer shot will be able to score well at this course. There aren't enough obstacles to really challenge you, and there is no rough at all so it's easy to recover from a bad drive.
Navigation is a bit tricky, the original course signage is mostly gone, so only the holes that were used in the combined world's layout hae signs, and those don't match up with the numbering of the original course at all. There are concrete tees on those holes, but the rest are mostly deep soft sand which provides for terrible footing.
Other Thoughts: Make sure you print a map or you'll probably not figure out all the holes on this course, certainly not in the right order. Parking is difficult, I found it easier to just pay for a metered spot than try to figure out where it was legal to park for free.
Beginners will find this course very approachable, with reasonable distances and not much punishment for errant shots. More experienced players won't find a whole lot of challenge or variety here. The other course onsite offers a little more length and a little more of a technical challenge.
(Note, my rating for the combined worlds layout would be higher than my ratings for either of the individual courses on site, it offers better variety and challenge and doesn't have the same tee and navigation issues.)
