Pros: A nice balance between very long drives (485') and shorter small window holes (185')
Risk of lost plastic considerably lower then the 18 hole course (watch hole 3)
Course is on a nature preserve featuring a variety of animals including gopher tortuous
Course is well signed now
Cons: It's only 9 holes
No elevation changes (It's Florida)
Facilities are not at the course itself, but located at the college (5 minute walk)
Other Thoughts: I am the president of UCF's Disc Golf Club and will gladly take anyone out on the course who's interested (we throw pretty much every Friday evening 5:30ish)

The course takes input of throwers and actively works to improve the course. For example "Next Tee" signs have been added to the course, the area around several baskets has been cleared out of the "palm", etc.

Anyone who wants to be shown the course should contact me as ISTMajor@Gmail.com

Pros:
1. Course map at pavilion.
2. Varying distances (from ~190' up to a beefy 489').
3. Water in play on 3 holes (#1, 2, & 9).
4. Adequate number of benches.
5. More open than original 18 hole course.
Cons:
1. Only 9 holes.
2. Narrow fairways with heavy scrub / saw palmettos on a few of the holes (#1, 2, & 3)
3. Limited risk / reward opportunities
4. No elevation change (I know, it's Florida...)
5. Limited shot variety (Straight, and...straight).
6. Difficult to navigate for first timers (Next Tee signage would be great, since it's a fairly large area)
Other Thoughts: The old 18 hole layout was ZERO fun...this layout has the potential to be slightly better. Better players will find it lacking in the shot variety category (nearly everything is straight at the basket, with only slight bends right or left depending on the hole). My favorite hole is hole #9 (formerly #18), a long toss over water to a cleared out grassy landing.

The best thing about this course is that you're less likely to lose a disc than you were on the old layout (though it's still VERY possible). It's now a playable course, but there are better courses in Orlando where the palms are less vicious and the play is more rewarding.

SPOILER ALERT!!! I'm describing all 9 holes below (so if you don't like that, stop reading!!!):

#1 and #2 (~250') are played with the water on your right, a narrow fairway ahead, and heavy scrub palms on your left. Chances are, you'll end up in the palms...enjoy!

#3 (~265'+) is a slightly longer version of #'s 1 & 2 but without the water...saw palms on both sides!

#4 is a short (~190) decent tunnel shot with live oaks forming the canopy.

#5 is another short (~190) and straight, narrow fairway throw.

#6 is ~425' long and fairly straight shot with the road (OB) on your right, scrub palms on the left.

#7 is ~489' long with a slight bend left at the end, road on the right, scrub palms on the left.

#8 is ~325' long straight ahead, road on right, scrub palms to the left.

#9 is ~315' with a 200'+ carry over water.

 Fun but stick to the other courses

Pros: They moved the baskets so there isn't a painful to search for a disc.
Maps at the pavilion.
Cons: Decreased the baskets from 18 to 9.
Found most baskets on the side of the road, so if your throw isn't straight it will go into the road.
Parking is 5 dollars.
