An interesting experience
Pros: This course is fairly challenging, with some very long holes, and holes that require very careful shots. It is in a nice area, and is a great activity for people to do on a college campus.
Cons: Agreed, it probably will be tough to play this course with classes in session and people walking around. Even with a map, on a few holes it was confusing to find where the next one was, but fairly manageable.
Other Thoughts: If you haven't played it, I suggest playing it once just so you get to try a new challenge.

Jekyll and Hyde
Pros: Immaculately manicured (for 14 of the holes) around a beautiful campus. Addams Family pinball machine in the student center behind the 5th tee. Perfect rubber teepads. Clever design of the open holes, using trees, creeks, elevation, OB roads and whatever's handy on campus... including a metal sculpture on hole 7 (which I hit).
Cons: Holes 8 - 11 are completely ungroomed and unkempt wood holes. 8 is a blind shot to an overgrown fairway, where I lost my disc (thanks to whoever found it later and called me). Perhaps they play better in the winter? I should have picked some corn...looked tasty. I'm pretty sure the listed distances are way off on half the holes (no way hole 7 is 482 yards). Tees are unmarked and often far astray, so print out the online map at lvdiscgolf.org! Essential! I played hole 14 instead of hole 6, and that was with the map.
Other Thoughts: I would like to go back in the winter to play the woods holes, but then the campus might be crowded then. This course is almost awesome, but it still worth a look. I can't say enough about the beauty of the campus and the friendliness of the few people i ran into.

Pros: 18 new tee pads. DIScatcher baskets are easy to see. Mixture of open and wooded holes with not overpowering length. Course is well maintained. Short distance from other Lehigh Valley courses, as well as Interstate 78.
Cons: The course has a lot of OB roads that are close to pins. The campus buildings are hittable on several holes so shot selection is quite key. No water fountains or restrooms. 8th hole is a blind shot around a corn field.
Other Thoughts: If you're in the Valley for a few days or live near the campus, it's worth a round or two. However, if you're only around for a day, I'd spend more time at the other great courses.
