Pros: Simple course to play. What you would expect from a small campus course.
Cons: Small short course. If you have a bad shot from tee (which is previous hole's basket) on some holes you may have to walk a ways to get into the baseball field to then walk back out to finish the hole.
Cute, small campus course

Pros: - Very nice campus, well maintained.
- Course is relatively long, and plenty of room to air it out.
- Plenty of parking, although you won't be competing with other disc golfers for spots at this course.
- Generally easy-to-follow layout.
- Did what they could to create different shot shapes for the land they were given. I commend the designers for working well with what they had.
- #7 was a cool, long and narrow hole between a corn field and the ball diamond/dugout. Probably plays more openly when the field is not planted or harvested, and could be a pain if you lose a shot over into the ball field.
Cons: - No tee pads or posts, just tee off from last basket.
- Course plays beside, around, and almost in 2 baseball fields. Also right next to what appears to be a soccer field. Course is not open during baseball or soccer games (per the course sign) for good reason. The outfields of both fields, as well as the entire fan section of the main ball field are very in-play on this course. Designing around these fields, however, is how they created effective shot shapes for the holes.
- No readily accessible bathrooms or water on the course. I'm sure you could get into a campus building if playing during the week, but it was pretty dead on the Sunday afternoon I was there. Didn't try though. Also no trash cans on course.
Other Thoughts: - Course sign says discs, maps, and scorecards are available at "the Warehouse," which I didn't bother to figure out what it was, or go find it. I assume it was closed on Sunday anyways. Would be nice for someone to grab those and upload them here though.
- In the end, this is good for campus recreation, as well as for locals. Not much to write home about, but glad that a town of ~15,000 with two small colleges has at least some place to play.
