Pros: The course plays on a very scenic college campus, in an area that has very little interference from non-disc golf activities. There is some great elevation, with lots of small ravines and hills that come into play, and a couple holes that play up and down a large steep hill with a long bomb coming back down. There is a creek running through much of the course, and it adds some fun challenge and risk.

There is a fun mix of short technical holes through tight woods with good punishment for errant shots and some more open holes that let you air it out a little. The technical holes do a pretty good job of mixing up hole shapes and playing reasonably balanced for righties and lefties.

There are mostly level rubber pads on all holes that provide a fine tee surface. There are signs with hole layout and distance, and they seemed pretty accurate and helpful. The baskets were in good shape and caught well. The grounds were free of trash and vandalism.
Cons: The course gets a little repetitive at times, with lots of short wooded holes that all start to feel pretty similar, especially since they are all about the same lengt. The open holes mix it up a little, but don't add very much challenge, it's a pretty easy course overall.

There are some pretty long walks that aren't marked at all here, some friendly locals helped us out a few times, but if they hadn't it would have been pretty tough to find all the holes. The tees are small, and can be pretty slick, and a few are lumpy or not level. The ground is pretty compacted and gets quite muddy and slippery in the woods, especially around the stream.
Other Thoughts: This is a great campus course, with some fun and interesting holes, but not so much challenge that college students trying out the sport will be scared off. For new players the course will challenge them to make some different shots and learn how to control their discs. More experienced players won't find the course much of a test, but there are some fun holes. This one is worth a stop if you're in the area.
