My local course
Pros: Rutgers is situated on a nicely manicured campus. The 18 holes flow well with most tees visible from the previous basket. The short course is signposted and popular with students and rec players. The longer 'B' layout is marked with orange bricks and is played mostly by local disc golfers. The 'C' layout is a championship level layout that is utilised for the annual Jersey Jam, which includes a couple of temporary baskets.
All layouts require different shots, with accuracy prized over big-arms. (Although some of the Pond/Field holes at the Jam are long) The rough is forgiving, so even if you hit an early tree you can still usually recover for a Par.
Cons: The course is showing its age, some baskets are a little unstable. Spit-throughs occasionally occur for power-putters. Some tee areas are eroded, and it can be hard to find the longer layouts if you're not playing with a local.
Other Thoughts: Rutgers is my local course and I've been playing there at least a couple of times a week for the last 18 months. From the longer tees it provides a real challenge and has helped my game develop.
Come out and join us for Tuesday Doubles at 6pm, it's the best way to see the course.

Great Little Par 3 Course
Pros: Nice and short par 3 course. Great mix of holes and different shots. Well designed. All holes are fun to play. Fun for beginners and advanced players alike. Good fairways. Plenty of trees but there's sufficient room to work your disc.
Cons: Try not to play while school is in session during the weekdays Sept. through June. Play weekends or in summer because there are plenty of college students walking the pathways that cross the course. Although it's okay to play while school is in session. One of the shortest holes in disc golf resides here (I think it's hole 9) which may seem a bit silly because it's a putt over a bush from the tee (but fun nonetheless).
Other Thoughts: Rutgers is worth playing because it's fun. Most holes are short but a bit challenging because of the trees. Some of the advanced players have called this course Puttger's (Ha) because they use their putters from the tee on most holes. But you'll see that you'll need your drivers on most of the holes.
