Fun open course
1 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Nice to occasionally play a more open course like this especially when working on your form since even a bad shot is quite recoverable. Easy to play safe on some of the more dangerous holes. Grass was mowed and we had the course to ourselves on a Saturday evening. Most of the tee areas were flat and not bad for natural tees. Course was easy to navigate overall, couple areas we guessed in but for the most part you just follow the trail or the most logical place the next tee would be and you'll do fine. A lot of holes to air it out but some slightly technical ones as well on the back nine for the most part. A lot of RHFH holes, which was nice since there aren't many courses in my area that require that shot that often.
Cons: Tee signs are in poor shape, and couldn't find hole 3's sign so we just made up our own tee area for that one. I'm surprised that a college campus can't afford to put slightly more effort into this course. The whole course should be in the area of the back nine imo. Get the disc throwers away from the other fields and people and it would be a lot better. Your disc golf day could be ruined with college activities since you would have to skip several holes. Tons of gnats were everywhere, even when we were walking they would follow us in a swarm. Every time we stopped even for a second for a quick throw they would be all over your face and possibly in your eyes. Probably just the time of year, but beware because it made it pretty frustrating at times. The blue baskets are hard to see, should paint them something else that stands out better.
Other Thoughts: Course has the potential to be really great unfortunately the design is lacking and the care of this course is just not there. I definitely recommend playing it if you're in the area, but I wouldn't drive very far JUST for this course.

Pros: Every hole seems to have something a little different. Sometimes it won't make sense, but it's still very interesting to see how they utilize the land they had between the buildings and sports fields.
Most people who play here will call if they find your disc so make sure to put a name and number on it and there's a good chance you'll see it again
Cons: Lots of places to lose discs
Strange layout on some holes toward the middle
Other Thoughts: I didn't get a chance to play the whole course. It was fun until I threw a little right on 2 holes and lost 2 discs in a thick prickly mess. I could actually see one of them but was wearing shorts and the risk wasn't worth the reward. I played until dark and got through 12 holes

Pros: Good for practicing driver. Challenging.
Cons: Extremely long. One hole took me 3 throws with my driver to get reasonably close to the basket. A few holes, maybe 13-16?, were hard to find. Course layout is a little confusing. Impossible to see hole number on baskets from a distance and i even have perfect vision.
Other Thoughts: They could potentially shorten a couple holes and add a couple more. With some basket moving they could make that a 21 or 22 hole course with the same total distance as originally.

Jack of all trades, master of none
Pros: This course does about everything a course can do. It plays between buildings, along a creek, out in a huge field, into the woods, behind a huge hill covered in kudzu, and back again. Some open holes you absolutely have to crank it, while other holes force you to play a precision game.
#4 is a great hole, shooting down a row of trees with a shallow (yet still OB) river running to your right. It feels great to fly out over it and fade back into the fairway.
#8 has one of the best pin placements I've ever seen. 5 feet to the right is OB and to the left, a massive shield of trees. A very tricky and fun approach shot.
Cons: This course is a major disc eater. You have the nature conservancy just feet away from the pin on 3 holes, so think twice about going for that birdie. I've gone in there 3 times, and thankfully found my disc each time, but I doubt everyone is so lucky. It was very poor design to place the pin so close to the weeds every time they were in play. There is also massive kudzu to both the right and left on hole 14.
A few holes feel pretty uninspired. 7, 9, 10, and 16 are all pretty much just open field. The last few holes feel like a bit of a let down after seeing what the course is capable of.
Other Thoughts: This course is a mixture of good and bad. The nature conservancy is very annoying, but would probably be less so if 3 holes weren't 5 feet away from it. Although #8 pulls it off interestingly, #7 and #9 are just a pain and pretty boring too.
It seems like you could put a cool hole in on the walk between 14 and 15. A short shot where you went across the creek to the pavilion area would be awesome.

Pros: Very pretty as it winds through campus. Variety of distances and some doglegs. Receives very little play yet well groomed.
Cons: Long. Very few opportunities for even a deuce.
Other Thoughts: Needs some shorter teeing areas as not everyone can blast it 325+
