Nice baskets on a pretty campus.
Pros: - 9 permanent baskets with hole numbers on the poles, all in good repair and well mounted.
- Course plays through a nice college campus with cool old architecture and mature trees.
- Free to play.
- Area that holes 5-10 play in is a really aesthetically pleasing.
Cons: - No navigation. No tee signs and we were not able to find a course map anywhere. The only reason we had a half a chance is the basket poles have the hole number.
- No tee boxes. There arent even obvious spots near the baskets. Some shots from around the previous basket seem to make sense, but a few holes just end up being really short. Obviously one could choose their own adventure but even then, it didn't seem like great options without a bit of disjointed wandering and, again, some really short throws.
- Holes 1-4(3 baskets, holes 1 & 4 play to the same) are in a field between 3 buildings and some walkways. There really arent any obstacles to speak of, just 3 baskets in a triangle and no way to be sure where to start for 1 and then you just shoot the 3 in a loop, I guess. This part of the course was wierd and didn't fit with the last 6 holes at all.
- If you were to park by hole 1 or the start area, hole 10 ends about 3 blocks away. Might be ok for on campus dwellers but I'm not a big fan of one-way courses.
Other Thoughts: I was kind of excited to come play this based on the 2.5 rating it had and the only negative about the navigation was "Course could be better marked". I don't really mind using my imagination but with how tight the course is already, trying to find spots for cool tees is difficult on a few of the holes. There are a couple good "holes" out there but this was a pretty big let down. I've changed the tee type to grass as most of the course is in grass however, there are spots where you could choose to use a nearby sidewalk. Don't go out of your way to play this unless you're just in it for a quick bag. Took us 25 minutes, even with not knowing where we were going. I will not play this course again, even if in the area. If you look at the campus map on their website(see course links) the start of the course is in the south part of campus between buildings 9, 10, 17, and 19. Once you've completed the first 4 holes, head northeast between buildings 12 and 13 toward Cornell St. Basket for #5 is in the grass between Cornell and building 3. Course flow is "intuitive" from there.

Nice campus course
Pros: Very pretty course. Nice variety of shots. Has a couple medium length holes.
Cons: Course could be better marked. It's length is short but is by necessity as space is restricted to a nice city campus.
Other Thoughts: Patagonia outlet store is right up the road also.
