Pros: -Nice baskets.
-Well maintained grass/debris cleanup
-Good distance/par markers
-Good variation of open/tree shots, and slight elevation changes.
-Not typically very busy in the afternoons
Cons: -A few holes (4,5,7,8) throw near roads or parking lots, this isn't a huge concern for people with disc control, but as a course that is shorter/easier for beginners, it poses risks of hitting the road, and/or cars.
-Very short holes overall, not a lot of technical skill required, just basic disc fade knowledge.
-Is likely busy during the school day when classes are running.
-A few of the tees are less than desirable even for dirt. The ones that come to mind are 7 (covered in tree roots, not really any solid footing) and 8 (just a giant pit of sand)
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a short course, and great for beginners, and probably isn't bad for intermediate players to challenge themselves to get under par on every hole. Nothing to drive just to come check out, but if you're in the area it's definitely worth checking out

 A place of beginner learning

This review was updated on 3/18/2014
Pros: -Beginner friendly
-Nice setting (Central Lakes College, located on the Mississippi River which lends some of its ancient river banks to the course)
-Not as much disc golf traffic as Lum Park in Brainerd
-Intriguing topography changes (which are not offered elsewhere in the Brainerd lakes area)
Cons: -Busy with students during school year
-Avoidable but devastating hazards, including buildings, roads, traffic, and pedestrians
-Not a significant source of a challenge for experienced players
Other Thoughts: A great addition to the Brainerd area, Central Lakes College disc golf course offers convenience for many area disc golfers. Central Lakes College is a nice setting for a course, but it represents many of the challenges that this type of course faces.

Beginner player experience - 1/1 for interesting short holes and long holes which are not too challenging
Intermediate player experience - 0.3/1 for being a pitch-and-putt
Advanced player experience - 0.1/1 for having little to offer
Setting - 0.7/1 for being very convenient for neighborhood disc golfers and comfortable place to enjoy a few rounds
Overall course experience - 1/1 for being a break from the crowds and having some nice looks at the basket for beginners

Total = 3.1/5

 Another mediocre Brainerd course.

Pros: Nice baskets, minimal traffic, nice mowed grass.
Cons: Not very technical, lots of risky parking lot/ disc into traffic shots, too easy, too short, college students walking around getting in the way.
Other Thoughts: Course designer Mark Englund did a nice job for the space he was given but this course isn't an improvement over the areas other lack luster courses. Overall this course is just too boring, no pretty lines, not very challenging.
