Not bad, but around the lake the surface is mainly goose crap.

This beautiful disc golf course is set around a lake on a college campus environment. It's long and mostly open and as you would assume, water comes into play on many holes. There are several picturesque holes. This course was used for the 1997 World Championships. Many holes have water come into play. #4 has a mando to protect the parking lot (you must go right around the first tree).
