Pros: - long, open holes for drives
- in town
- beginner friendly
Cons: - very simple and boring
- almost no obstacles
- busy with pedestrian traffic during the school year (?)
Other Thoughts: built in a field between the dorms and the rec center, this course is the most boring i've personally played. that being said, it's very beginner friendly and would be good for introducing a new player to the game. it's also conveniently placed if you lived in the towers or if you wanted to squeeze a round in before/after a workout at the rec. i played in the summer when there were no students around, so i have no idea how busy it gets during the school year.

Lack of tee boxes
Cheap baskets (lack of chains)

Holes not in order
Had to hunt to find hole two and its basket
Some holes unmarked
Other Thoughts: I made an hour drive for this, I will not be back. My son kept asking why we had bothered to make the trip for such a disappointment.

Pros: -the holes here do have some distance on the first 5 holes.
-the back 4 have some interesting obstacles including building and some guard trees.
-Some concrete OB adds to the challenge, rather than just long throw after long throw. unlisted OB (concrete) in play on 1,2, 3, 5 (but 2 and 3 only have OB with bad shots)
-The baskets are in decent shape.
Cons: -The first thing I noticed when walking up to the first tee was the lack of hole distance on the teesign.
-Navigation was pretty terrible, I couldnt find hole 2 for awhile, it is all way down by the dorms, by the concrete volleyball (possibly tetherball) courts.
-No variety here, all shots on the front are straigght ahead with little to no obstacles, the 1 piece of variety on the course was 8 which went l to r with a building as an obstacle.
-Which brings me to the next con, I can imagine this course is pretty dangerous because it plays across sports field, along a parking lot, along a side walk, and by buildings. Also be careful crossing the street to 6-9.
-No restrooms or water in sight, and there is no real place to hide for some relief.
Other Thoughts: Overall this course was pretty terrible, I wouldn't recommend it, better to take a portable basket and play in the forest and rocks when camping.
