Pros: - Easy to find
- Well groomed
- Good variety of lengths
- Blind tees on several holes, most notably the hill on #14
Cons: - Teepads are slick, hard to get good footing
- Little to no elevation changes
- Missing a few signs
Other Thoughts: The first word that comes to mind when describing this course is "bland." It's a great location and is obviously well taken care of but the land just isn't suited for a disc golf course. Most fairways, especially the last few, are wide open and don't really challenge intermediate players (take a look at the teebox photos here to see what I mean.) There is a nice looking lake on the course but the only time it really comes into play is the first couple of holes; I believe the course designer could have incorporated it more. The highlight of the course for me was hole #13. The pin is hidden in several trees and if you don't take the correct approach to it you'll wind up in a lot of trouble. This is a nice course to get a quick 18 in on if you're in the area but I wouldn't recommend going out of your way.

Watch out for the big pond.
Pros: Nice layout with interesting obstacles. Course layout flows well. The tees are good considering they are rubber. The landscape is used nicely.
Cons: A couple tees need to be replaced/fixed.
Other Thoughts: Big pond that allows you to make decisions to take a risk or play it safe. Very fun course in a university setting.

CMU Disc Golf
Pros: Well maintained, and beautiful landscape. Every hole has a different layout that will make you rethink each throw.
Cons: Some holes come so close to each other that without knowing the course, you could be going after three separate baskets. You could also get lost searching for hole 4 because you have to go out of your way and cross railroad tracks, then cross back over for hole 11.
Other Thoughts: Great looking course. If you plan on going, and especially if you are new at disc golf, you may want to avoid the first couple holes because of a pond on your left that you must throw around.
