Pros: good variety of holes both open and wooded
tight fairways of some homes allow for accuracy and others you can just throw it
Cons: the course like most has a few underbrush issues but mainly...
WHY IS THERE NOT 18 HOLES
the amount of room the university has is insanely large and with the popularity of the sport and amount people that play this course I believe that this course is in desperate need for expansion
Other Thoughts: alternate way to play 18 without having to play 1-8 then go to 4-9 then 1-3 then 9
if hole quality was kept and extended to 18 this would be a 4 or 4.5 for me

New Course Layout
Pros: It seems like this course is of deserving some fresh reviews with the new layout. I never played the old one, but the course is a lot better than what it used to be.
Baskets - All in great condition with interesting placements
Tee Pads - Solid concrete that are about average in size
Signage - Accurate and in fantastic shape on every hole
Navigation - Layout flows very nicely, with no repetitive shots or long walks between tees/baskets
Shot Selection - Almost every shot comes into play at some point on this course. No hole is very long, but #2 allows for somewhat of a decent drive. That is if you can keep it in the fairway.
Cons: Upkeep - #1 eats discs due to the overgrowth. The course upkeep has definitely improved over the past few months, but it has a way to go.
Traffic - This course will see a massive growth in players once the Centennial dorms are finished. It isn't terrible in the summer, but when NCSU is in session the traffic increases exponentially.
Utilization of land - There is so much potential for this course, 18 holes is a real possibility. There is definitely room for improvement to utilize all the available land.
Other Thoughts: For a 9 hole course, it isn't bad. Definitely not a destination course, but if you're around Centennial it's a must play. It's a good course to work on your upshots and drives with your putters. #6 is a nice spike hyzer shot. Or a smooth buttery hyzer with your Buzzz SS.

Tight shorts lol
Pros: Offer a nice of mix of birdie holes in with 3 ridiculously hard ones (1,3,7) The only holes I have yet to birdie here. Everything here is in a native enviroment so if your into plants and wildlife this is your disc golf course!
Great tee pads and new baskets that are not to bad to rob
Multiple lines through dense forests along with two open holes(2,9) that you should birdie, just dont go long on number 2 because the basket is perched atop a hill
Risk/reward factor is huge here, trying the same lines like everytime, I will shoot in the range of -2 up to +5
Newly mulched area around number 1's basket make for an official green and completes one of the most technical/scenic/challenging holes in Raleigh
Cons: Hole 1 is rather long to be as tight as it is. I have never birdied it and only par'd it like 3 times and I have played this course 3 times a week since I started playing in January 11. I recommend a flick off the tee to have a chance at birdie/par. Hole 3 is even tighter than 1, if you can throw a big sweeping hyzer you can kind of see a line to the left of a couple of massive pines. I got lost on hole 7 the first time I played it lol, the fairway is serioulsy 7 ft wide at the widest point! Look for a huge water birch tree and the basket is kind of tucked behind it and a couple of small cedar trees (good luck to par you will need it on all three of these!). Oh and yea def be aware that leaves of three should be left bee!! (poison ivy, oak are bad in the pine patches)
And since I am on the NCSU Disc golf team I have recently become aware that their is NO plans of expansion to 18. This is the biggest con to me because there is plenty of room for an awesome back nine!
Other Thoughts: While it is only 9 holes it def offers a challenge because of its super tight lines on all of the holes except mainly 2. If your near NCSU's campus and have 35 min to blow I recommend trying it out!
As an NC State student I would love to see the addition of another 9, Ill help with the building process!!
