Good for what it is
Pros: It's a short course that can be played in 45 minutes. Ace probability is high on most holes. The grounds are very well maintained. It's perfect for practicing mid range and putting. I've been playing here almost every day at sundown.
I've been within inches of ace-ing hole 6 on 3 occasions. It's coming.
Cons: The baskets are not the best. We had a few gimmees bounce of the chains because they are so loose. The baskets also need to be labeled because it's hard to figure out which to throw at (holes 1-5). It's easy to lose discs in the high brush. I've had a few go into there, and when I go in to find them I've come out with burrs all over me. Be careful of walkers/joggers on the paths around the course. They have no idea what we're doing and often walk right into the fairways.
Other Thoughts: I aced #6 on 9.2.10!

Fun Course to keep up practice
Pros: -Lots of ceiling shots
-Some holes were actually pretty technical
-Very Very well maintained
-Lots of great ace opportunities. i.e. 6 (i've come extremely close twice now)
-Lots of pretty girls walking the track ;)
Cons: -Baskets were very unforgiving
-Poison Ivy was bad if you got in the deep rough on two
-Somewhat confusing on first tee trying to figure out which basket to throw at
Other Thoughts: Good course for a first time player. Extremely difficult to lose a disc. *Edit, yes. I lost a disc here yesterday. Watch out for the rough behind #4. It is like hell back there with giant thorn trees and mesquite. Had a thorn go through my shoe) This is the closest course to my new apartment and is a great "stop by after work to get some throws in course". And the scenery is great too. Gotta love colleges.
They have cleared out a ton of brush off of 5-6. Made the dogleg a little more forgiving for those random bad throws.

To the Crescent Moon Alice!
Pros: First off, the first tee is directly behind the building where you park. The tees are a gravel/dirt mix that are actually not too bad. There are some low ceiling drives with trees creating a tougher shot to the holes. This was actually not a bad design. It will force you to maybe change how you approach certain holes. The "water" hole #3 has a nice pond and really is kind of a pretty hole. #9 has a hidden basket behind some small trees which was kind of fun to dart in at it from high above. It does feel like there are lots of short holes, but the hole length variety really isn't bad here. The course almost make a big crescent moon shape around a big field, making navigation a non-issue. There is some seating areas around some of the tees and the red tee posts are easy to see on all holes.
Cons: The red tee posts do not have any info on them except hole number. Some of the tee pads could use some size adjustments. The walk from #9 basket to #1 tee was a little long considering the over all size of the course. The homemade baskets were ok, but only had a single set of chains and didn't all hang like they should have. There were no public bathrooms actually and it could have used some trashcans, even though the area was quite clean.
Other Thoughts: The Fun Factor was fair for me. I really didn't think the course was overly challenging, but yet there were some fun drives. The way the trees protected a few of the drives made you work enough shots that it was worth the stop. This is the kind of place you really should be in the area to stop by. However, it certainly is not road trip worthy. The college did an OK job and it is very cool that they have this for class credits too.

Better than expected
Pros: Tee's marked
New gravel tee pads.
Red (homemade?) baskets
Last 3 holes are pretty good.
Cons: 2 of the tee boxes were just large enough to stand on, one of them was only on a 130ft hole, other was not long enough to take a step to throw.
VERY long walk from #9 to the Parking lot or hole #1
Other Thoughts: Based on the few other reviews, I was not expecting much, only stopped in to play the course to be able to add it to this list. However, I found the course better than expected with a few actually good holes.
I did not "check in" and did not ask permission to play the course. I actually ran several holes because I was worried about getting a ticket.

TCC S.E. Campus Rundown!!!
Pros: -Shot variety...trees, open holes, couple long shots, short shots, and water hazards
-NO traffic mainly in part because no one knows about it
-Disc Golf class at TCC, nice to have something to throw at for class.
Cons: -No t-pads
-Not very long at all
-Baskets are homemade....decent metal shop baskets if you will...though you'll see spit outs and blow-throughs for sure
Other Thoughts: Cool idea to put a course on the campus. Really decent job they did on on it.
Not much of a course, but it's a decent throw have some holes bump in to a creek or go around a pond with both wooded and open shots.
Not worth a drive or anything, but if you're close you should check it out.

Good for Between Classes
Pros: On campus course is a good time killer for students. Beginner friendly for sure. Couple of skill shots. Pros will ace run on most holes. Can run through 9 in record time.
Cons: Baskets are very cheap, almost look homemade. Most shots are short hyzers. Gets very muddy with light rain.
Other Thoughts: This isn't really a course worth traveling to, especially with Lester Lorch being 10 min away. If you go to school here, which I do, it makes for a decent practice course. Don't avoid it, but don't make any big plans for it either.
The campus has a Disc Golf curriculum available to students that utilizes the course.
