Good, Quick Course to Learn on
Pros: For what the land has, the length and wrapping baskets behind trees is well done. It's a good course to learn on without too much length so beginners will be alright. It feels like it's designed mostly for college kids to get a quick round in after classes and it fits that perfectly. The baskets are moved between the locations relatively frequently and several of the different locations provide different types of shots for the holes.
Cons: The tee pads are dirt and are pretty washed out in some cases. You may want to tee off next to/behind the tee on some holes. Also, you'll want to check out the map before you start because there's some walking between several of the holes. Also, there are other sports fields nearby and it's not difficult on some holes (specifically 1 and 7) to throw over a fence. There's a barb wire fence in the trees on the right side of hole 2, be careful if you go into the trees.
Other Thoughts: This course is in the middle of a college campus, so expect to see students on the course that probably don't know disc golf etiquette. All in all this is a pretty average course. Good for a quick round if you're nearby, but not a destination to travel to.
Tricky and long but fun to have around

Pros: The biggest pro of this course is that it is close to my home. It has a lot of fun yet tricky shots that keep my on my toes. The bulk of the course is mowed and the holes are well marked.
Cons: There is a small stream that snakes around the course and always seems to catch my discs and make everything a muddy mess. The trees have a deal with the stream and I will sometimes spend as much time in the trees as I do out of it. Poison Ivy is native to the area and the mgmt isn't known for getting rid of it. There is some tall grass in places that can make disc retrieval quite annoying.
Other Thoughts: The conditions on Hole 1 are nice. The tee is taken care of and there is little chance of losing your disc. The throw itself however is not an easy one to start with. You have to throw up or around a hill to start and the basket is not visible from the tee. I usually throw right towards the road or start of with a hammer throw. If I don't warm up though, I'll often chuck it about 10 feet, straight into the hill and begin to cry. There is also a soccer field next to the hole, which also has a habit of eating discs I have to then retrieve. Hole 2 is sneaky but wonderful, if you can thread the needle of trees to the open field behind it. I have smacked many a disc into the trees on the left and the fence on the right. The Basket for hole 2 is right in front of a set of trees and I have found more than one disc in those trees while searching for my own. Hole 3 is a longer put with a formidable set of trees to get through. The trees are on the edge of the stream and I often smack a tree and send my disc right into the mud. Additionally the grass behind and to the left of the basket get tall and I have wasted a lot of time looking for my mid-range or putter there. The tee on hole 4 is absolutely unusable. Other than that, hole 4 is a long, upward sloping hole with little in the way. The hardest part about this hole is the upward slope. Hole 5 has a decent tee and tricky course design. You can't see the tee from the basket because of the downward slope and the basket is hard to hit as the disc has to travel a good distance before curving to the right to get into the alcove containing the basket. All around and behind the basket are the trees that eat discs. Hole 6 is a relatively straight shot from the tee to the basket with a grove of shrubs in between. Hole 7 is a long shot with the stream snaking about 10 feet in front of the basket. Landing in the stream used to be the biggest concern but now the grass around the stream hasn't been mowed in ages and is quite tall, I nearly lost my dog, not to mention my disc in it. Hole 8 calms down but the stream and the grass are still problems and there is a bit of a tree element around the basket too. Hole 9 however is just a long straight shot after a comparatively trick course.

Pros: This course has good signage and 2 sets of pins for each hole. There are gravel tees and bag hangers at every hole. The course is litter free and well kept. Also there is a decent mix of short and moderate length holes as well as decent elevation change.
Here are my hole observations to the yellow pins:
1-uphill shot, soccer field to the left
2-downhill shot with moderate length and tree lined off of the box
3-downhill shot that crosses a stream
4-uphill shot with the left side being wide open
5-downhill shot, slight dog leg right
6-uphill shot with trees upon approach
7-straight shot that has a gap to hit
8-trees on the left, stream behind the basket
9-uphill, left side is open
Cons: This course is too spread out. It plays around a soccer field and a baseball field so long walks between holes and to your car after finishing your round are very lengthy.
Example would be 1's basket to 2's tee, 2's basket to 3's tee, 8's basket to 9's tee and 9's basket to the parking lot.
With the above stated some holes might not be playable because of parked cars or people in lawn chairs etc. if there were games in progress.
Wind could be a factor during your round.
4's tee holds water in the box.
There aren't any amenities here like restrooms, benches, playgrounds etc.
Other Thoughts: This course does provide a decent challenge on a few of its holes. It is a good playing course and if you are in the area check it out. Would be fun to play after classes as its close to the campus.
Not a must play course but it does provide you with the opportunity to get out and play so thats a plus in my book.

Pros: +for a 9 hole course, there is decent distance and good elevation changes
+holes 2, 5 are very fun to play; downhill tunnel shots
+tee signs are very good, the visual indicators match exactly what is there
+mowed and maintained
Cons: -tee pads are terrible. mix of gravel or some other loose rock. They are worn in and in some cases not even flat. Straight dirt or rubber pad would be better
-only 9 holes, plenty of room for 18. all they have to do is take out the super long walks from pin to next tee
Other Thoughts: good practice course

Worth the walk
Pros: Grounds well kept, on college property so clean and will probably stay that way. Nice use of elevation and the few trees on the course. Distances are decent albeit, nothing over 500 ft. Surprisingly quick play for the overall distance walked.
Cons: Distance between pin and next tee as you seen in previous reviews. Not a ton of challenges here even bad drives were easy pars.
Other Thoughts: The town of Liberty finally gets a dg course. Being one of Kansas City's larger suburb it was strange. The course itself was typical and quite a delight. Probably my favorite hole was number 5 a nice downhill with a well protected basket to the right.
