Other Thoughts: This is a great start for a University campus course. The area the course is built on has plenty of room for expansion. I look forward to seeing a full 18 here.

The 3 holes are all tight, wooded lanes. The first has a green that hooks right. The second is intended to be a hyzer route but there is also an S curve line as well. The third is a straight shot with wooden pillars guarding the basket. There is a low ceiling on the first two holes while the third has a bit more air space.

The holes are short, technical, and challenging. A good drive will get you down the fairway but not necessarily on the green. If you get off the fairway early, you will be in trouble. Opening up the greens by trimming the nearby branches and such will go a long way toward giving a better chance at a duece.

I played with over a foot of snow on the ground so I can't speak to the condition of the natural pads. The boards laid down between basket 2 and tee 3 indicate that there may be some drainage issues.

I'm sure the local students will be doing a lot of work to increase the appeal of the course and add more holes. I can't wait to come back and see where this course goes in the future.
