Great Course for Learning (or Teaching) Disc Golf
Pros: TL;DR - This is about as good as a 9-hole course on a college campus can get. The campus is beautiful and the course layout is well-designed given the limited space.
- Extremely clean, beautiful campus with lush grass
- Great course for learning disc golf or teaching others
- Fairways avoid the highest-traffic areas of the campus
- Almost all of the course is lit; night golf here is excellent
- Trees and other obstacles force a variety of lines
- Baskets are in great shape with custom wraps
Cons: TL;DR - The course is private and hard to play during the school year. Holes are short and expert golfers will find little need for anything longer than a midrange.
- You'll need a guide the first few times, as the teepads are simply paving stones with engraved information
- The longest holes are about 270', but most are shorter
- Foot traffic makes the course difficult to play when school is in session
- Poor shots on a few holes can result in unretrievable discs lost on roofs of buildings
- Private property: you'll need to be with a student, faculty member, or alumnus to play here
Other Thoughts: This is where I learned how to play disc golf and where I take people new to the game. The best time to play the course is when school is not in session. During the school year, Sunday afternoons are a good time to play as the campus tends to be empty of foot traffic.

Cons: -Need a guide to find tees
-Short (9 holes and longest is less than 300')
-Long walk between some holes
-Had plenty of land off campus, and chose to put course on high-traffic campus
-High chance of hitting pedestrians.
Other Thoughts: I have a friend who works on campus, and we play from time to time. It's an okay practice course.

A fun course to work on your short game!
Pros: -Nice, clean, well maintained campus with beautiful green grass
-good course for beginners
-well lit for night disc golf!
-generally polite staff and students around
-some trees provide reasonable obstacles
Cons: -no smoking, or drinking on campus
-not open to the public
-might be hard to find the tees without a guide
-would be difficult to play on an average school day with lots of pedestrian traffic
-no signs or well marked tees. most tees are on concrete sidewalks/pathways which isn't bad.
-even for a 9 hole course is it pretty short, but it is fun, especially considering the limited space.
-the course is totally flat
Other Thoughts: If you are fortunate enough to know someone who attends this school, you should try this course out. It is a fun little 9 hole and playing at night is a blast. Please respect campus rules so that others may continue to play here! Be careful not to throw at pedestrians. You will likely want to play at least 2 rounds in a row because it is so short, but fun! I played it pretty well with just 2 putters. It's a challenge to birdie every hole!
