Worst course ever?
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Baskets. Not that they are good, but there are baskets.
Cons: Everything but the presence of baskets.
-- Course layout is terrible. Even with a map, you'll be hard pressed to find your way. The walk from 5 to 6 is ridiculously long and forces you to find your way through a fence at on-campus apartments. Every hole has you throwing across a sidewalk. Even on a non-school day, I had to wait several times for pedestrians who were oblivious to the game.
-- Tee pads/signs. No actual tee pads anywhere. Holes 1, 2, 3, & 6 had nothing to indicate where you should tee from, not even worn spots in the dirt. Holes 7 & 8 had tee signs pointing the wrong direction. Hole 9 had a 6-foot fence between the "pad" and the sign. The distance between the pad and sign was less than 2 feet, so basically you are throwing over a 6-foot high fence at the end of your tee pad.
-- Poor baskets. Single set of chains is the least of the problems. The bottom ring holding the chains to the center post on No. 1 is broken, so most of the chains hang loose on the outside of the catching basket. Basket 3 leans badly. Basket 5 is missing the inner ring on the catching basket.
Other Thoughts: Construction on campus is also an issue. Basket 6 is surrounded by orange construction fencing. The construction could have contributed to several issues listed above, but it can't explain everything. This course is so unknown/unplayed by people on campus that a car was parked 3 feet IN FRONT of basket 8. And a campus security guard knew nothing of the course.

fun night golf course
2 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -a variety of fun shots
-nice new discatchers, signs at each tee
-grass mowed, campus is very clean
-great use of elevation
-lots of campus features and trees with which to contend
-tees are mostly near sidewalks so there is always a flat surface from which to throw
-lots of lights around campus make night golf pretty easy. i played without lights or glow tape.
Cons: -cannot play while there are a bunch of people on campus, which is most of the time during the day
-some long walks between holes, the layout works but there are unavoidable walks between different areas of campus
Other Thoughts: **Update**
It seems the baskets have taken a beating lately and construction is impeding the course in a few spots.
The shots here are pretty fun. If there aren't many people around and you don't have to worry about hitting anyone then this is a pretty cool course. I played in the evening with no disc lights and had no problem as there are lots of lights around campus. This is a good course for playing night golf since it's well lit and it's probably the only time the course will be empty enough to play without waiting 10 mins on each tee for the right moment to throw.
Maybe it was just because it was dark but it seemed to me that the distances were a little overstated. Pretty much every basket is reachable from the tee but it's a matter of dodging the obstacles. Trees, parking lots, a volleyball court, and even school buildings come into play. The baskets are discatchers but they are painted with the school colors so at first the chains sound like plastic. The layout works but is a pain, as the holes are spread across campus.
Fun if the conditions are playable but this course is for night golf, local students, and course baggers only. There are way better options in Fort Worth; go check out Gateway nearby here.

Pros: *Different scenery then what you are use to on a disc golf course. Being set on a college campus made for some interesting throws. Having to avoid artwork instead of trees is always a plus- This is probably the strongest thing on this course. It was a real nice change, and what actually made me give it a higher ranking
*tee signs (no basket numbers yet)
*good use of land
*security- saw campus security patrol through a few times
*good use of trees to make shots challenging
Cons: *9 hole
*no real tee pads-throwing from sidewalks
*Baskets-homemade one level of chains
*being on campus means alot of people using side walk
* hole 6 throws along parking lot---cars are not suppose to be targets
*if not familiar with campus kind of hard to follow along
*walk 5 to 6 is long and back tracking, 8 to 9 is a walk too
Other Thoughts: i played on saturday and only saw a few people. I drove by on a thursday a few weeks ago and decided not to play because of the amount of people walking around.
*IF this was an 18, with the last 9 being designed the same way i could give it a 3.5
*i think it makes a nice complimentary course for Greenbriar or The Privey (gateway)

Pros: Array of Shots, Very Clean, Always Mowed, Close Parking, Better than TCC's Course. Good Baskets.
Cons: Bad Layout, Pedestrians, Very Short Holes, Tees and Baskets Not Marked/Labeled Really Need to Have Map.
Other Thoughts: What can not be said its a new course always a good thing.

Pros: I parked in the first parking lot off of Wesleyan St. (travel north) It's the Admin building and you have some visitor parking up front against the building. I really liked the setting and the upkeep on this course is the best I have played with no trash. thought this course had a lot of fun technical shots. It offered a lot of shot variation. It had baskets placed close to the side walk which made it more difficult considering the distance. I thought the setting was very non disc golf typical playing through the campus buildings. I loved the use of elevation and trees.
Cons: I think total they had 2 or 3 tee signs that had a number spray painted on a little metal stake. Without out a map this course is not playable. Some holes cross the sidewalks so be very aware of foot traffic in the area, but I played at lunch time and had no trouble at all playing the entire course without interruption from pedestrians. I wanted to give this course a higher rating but you will understand why I did not if you play.
Other Thoughts: I will go back and play this course again at lunch for a noon'er. I would give it a higher rating with some tee signs and maybe a little better flow between hole 5 and hole 6 and then again between hole 8 and 9. I would recomend this course with a map to anyone in the area.
