 Short but sweet

Short little pitch & putt course can be played with only one disc in just over 20 minutes. But for a P&P course there is nice elevation on several holes as well as hyzer and anny lines. Most holes are around 150' with the longest at 266' (uphill). This is not a waste of nine baskets, it's a legit starter course ideal for new players getting introduced to the sport or young kids. The challenge any experienced player will have is trying to '2' all the holes.
Tees are natural and marked with one 12"x12" paver stone. As this course doesn't get much play the tee pads are hard to find without a map. The course is too short to have any significant replay value for most experienced players.
Other Thoughts:
The online map is very accurate with respect to tee pad locations, making the course easy to navigate with map in hand. This course could make for some fun pressure putting skins games as someone in the group is gonna birdie every hole.

 Short But Real

Good intro to the game without merely being wide-open tosses.
Practically every hole plays near or across a walking path and/or building.
Other Thoughts:
Bring your favourite control disc as every hole but #7 is ~150' or less. The course offers a glimpse of what "real" disc golf is like, as there are trees to throw around, limbs to throw under, gullies to throw across, elevation changes, baskets on the edge of slopes, and other obstacles to avoid - some being students trying to make their way about the campus.

With the online map, finding the small, unnumbered concrete block designating the tee and determining which ancient basket to throw towards wasn't too difficult.

If grip-n-rip is your thing, this is NOT the course for you, but quite suitable to introduce people to the game.
