 Another Rochester winner.

Pros: Nice 18 hole course with trees, nice use of water hazards, slight elevation changes, and long open areas. Open year round. Multiple tee pads if you know where they are.
Cons: Some times the trails are under 2 inches of mud and water. Some tee pads are difficult to find or missing. The tee areas were so muddy it was imposible to throw from them (on numerous occasions).
There are no tee pads, this would be the biggest improvement on the course if anyone at MCC rec is reading this!

If you hate water, there is possibility of disc loss on 3 holes. If the disc goes in the water you CAN NOT go in after it, Campus Security says it is a protected wetland. If you go to the course in the winter don't be suprised to see a few holes removed. Idiots keep trying to crawl out on the ice to get their favorite DX disc.
Other Thoughts: To get to the course you need to turn into the parking lot at the first entrance after getting off 390. Go as far left as possible and take a long road that seems like it is leading you away from the school. Eventually you will see a break in the trees on your left and Basket 1 past a small wooden bridge. Drive past the course and park in the lot on the right side and walk back to the course.
Score cards are usually available at the keosk. Course signage and clear tee pads (even rubber) are needed for this course before 2010 worlds.

 Fun, short course

Pros: Good mix of open and wooded holes, course was in great condition in the summer and fall. Some water comes into play, with a bit of elevation utilized where possible. There were actually score cards with map available at the first hole when I played, which is a first for any of the courses I have played. Lots of birdie opportunities, or if you're good ace runs. Pretty quick to play if you are playing other courses in the area, might as well hit this one.
Cons: There was quite a bit of traffic the first time I played from non disc golfers, but they weren't really in the way. The course plays a bit short, so if you like long bomber holes you might not like this one.
Other Thoughts: Park behind the hockey rink and put a note on your dash "playing disc golf" and you won't be ticketed. Hole 13 is right behind the parking lot so you might want to start there.

 Variety

Pros: Good balance of open & tight holes. Opportunities for both left & right hand throwers. Number 4, over the water, is one of my favorites. Convenient to highways & other courses.
Cons: Hole 5 is an opportunity to lose a disc. Even a near perfect drive can roll into the water. Not a problem, if you have a spotter.
Other Thoughts: Other shots near water, but you can chose how safe or risky to play them. Tees in the woods could use concrete or at least gravel for drainage.

Pros: The location of this course is perfect. It is located on the property of MCC and you can see some of the holes as you drive down highway 390.

The course is still pretty new and will mature. It is fun to play and it is still debatable on how good it can/will be.

 Good Mix - Nice Course

Pros: Great variety of holes - open field, wooded, over water and movement around the course flows pretty smoothly. Little tricky to find the tee on 10 from the pin on 9 if you don't know your way. Open all year round, which is great for us Eastsiders.
Cons: Lots of bugs in the summer - come prepared. Only thing more frustrating than losing your disc in the pond in is watching it sit on the thin ice (just out of reach) during early winter. Maybe it will freeze over completely in the coming months and the water hazard wont be such an issue for us less acurate drivers.
Other Thoughts: Permanent tee pads would be a nice addition.

 Pretty new course

Pros: For a course that just opened, it looks amazing. The wooded holes are a little on the tight side as one would expect with a new course, but they are short enough that they play smoothly. Bright arrow signs guide golfers through the course. It has a couple of water shots over a narrow creek, and a large pond is in play for others, but there is always a "safe" way to play each hole and keep your discs dry. The course has a nice variety of challenging holes, yet remains beginner friendly.
Cons: I think the black and gold rocks as tees look pretty cool, but black can be hard to find and rocks have a way of walking away... The par posted for the black tees is quite wrong, and no distance is posted for the holes, though they all felt like par 3s. Need for a foot bridge near hole 1 messes up the traffic pattern. Finally, the parking situation is a bit unnerving; I don't like being at the mercy of a college parking officer trying to fill a quota.
Other Thoughts: I can't see this place ever hosting a high level tournament, the length just doesn't justify it. But it is a fun place to shoot a round, and was worth the visit.

 Another Great Rochester Course

Pros: Variety of hole types with some challenging holes. Well maintained.
Cons: #7 plays close to the expressway but it isn't a major concern, just a nitpick.
Other Thoughts: The MCC course turned out to be a great addition to the Rochester course lineup. The pond comes into play on 2 holes on the front 9 and 2 or 3 on the back. #4 has you throwing right over the pond so make sure you don't mess up your throw!

Both the front and back 9 have a nice mix of open and wooded holes and they are all well thought out and fun to play. It looked like the back 9 still needed a little work as far as clearing things out but it was more than playable and I'm sure it'll only get better.

If you're in the Rochester area then be sure to stop by MCC, you won't be disappointed.
