Pros: -- Dedicated disc golf area. The course is on the east side of the property. Once you enter the wooded part of the course, you feel as if you are in the middle of nowhere.
-- Tee signs with everything you need, including a photo.
-- Cement tee pads
-- Excellent use of the land
-- Two throws over a deep creek/ravine. No. 5 is especially picturesque. Water is also in play on Nos. 1 and 17 with the lake/pond.
-- Fun shorter shots on the early holes that require you to hit your lines and navigate trees. Good throws should net you birides; bad shots land you in jail.
-- No. 7 is a great ace run, but the steep drop off and all of the vegetation just behind the basket punishes you for overthrowing.
-- No. 9 plays right beside the parking lot, so restocking midround is easy.
Cons: -- Really tall grass.
-- Hole 12 is the longest hole on the course (514 feet), but there is NO challenge other than the length.
-- While throwing across the creek is cool, crossing the creek is not. No. 5 isn't terrible (follow the path slightly left to go around), but No. 10 requires a LONG walk left from the tee, down a path to the creek and then back right. Much of that area down by the creek is wet and slippery. If it has rained recently, I can imagine that being under water and not crossable.
-- Flow is not great. Several times you walk through or right behind a tee box to get to another hole.
-- No restrooms, trash cans, water. Bring what you need, and take your trash with you when you leave.
Other Thoughts: -- There are a lot of narrow gaps to hit here. That makes for a good challenge, but without timely trimming, several of those will become overgrown.
-- This almost has the feel of two 9-hole courses near each other. The divide is really 1-10, and 11-18, but taking it as two 9s, the front averages 204 feet and the back 316.

Pros: Direction signs from the school entrance
Sweet Tee signs
Cement Tee pads
Decent use of the land
Cons: Many of the holes are on the short side for a seasoned player
the open holes tend to be long for a rec player
Parking seems weird
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course to play. Plenty of Ace Run though the tree's. I actually enjoyed the first 10 holes.
But with that said, the back 7 holes are hurting and the reason I only gave the course a 3.5.
Now if the college mows the back side, those holes would be a little more fun to play.
Front 10 holes are all under 300ft, most around 200.
You start off with a nice turnover shot along the pond, pretty open shot as long as you don't hyzer out down the hill or turn over into the pond.
Follow the tape pointing to the next tee on the basket. Holes 2, 3 and 4 all throw with cedars acting like bunkers.
Hole 5 is a little shot over a ravine, don't hit the bushes to the right, it will be kicked back down the hill. There is a drop zone on the left where the trail comes in.
Hole 6 to 9 are all semi open shots. Watch out on hole 7 as there is a drop off behind the basket.
Hole 10 is another interesting hole. narrow fairway over the ravine and up to the left. They took some time building a path on this hole.
Then you cut across to the more open holes.
11 is over some rough, one of the few holes you can't see the basket from the tee.
Hole 12 is the longest on the course. Wide open fairway as long as you don't turn it over to the right.
13 has you throwing though a gap in a fence line, shorter hole. Easy if you hit the gap.
14 is the 2nd longest hole on the course. Wide open but the grass was tall.
15 is a good disc golf hole. You have 2 basic paths to the basket. One is sort of an S shot though a gap. Don't bee too far right though that gap, you will have a tough upshot. There is a big lefty hyzer, or forehand shot. But a fence line is guarding most of it.
16 is mostly open, go over the top or hit the gap for the 2.
17 is my 2nd favorite hole on the course. There is both a lefty and righty shot, the lefty shot is over the water. If you have a good forhand, it is the shortest route to the basket. The hyzer is a big longer and harder to hit.
18 is an open shot, you can throw it hard, as there is a hill behind the basket. Just don't turn it over to the right, deep doo doo over there.
Would I play here again? Yes, even though there are some boring holes on the back, as a whole the course is fun to play.
