Pros: Tube holes provided a different challenge
Cons: No flow (9 ends on the opposite side of campus)
Crammed between buildings, around parking lots, etc
Crosses flood plains (dry when I played)
Tee boxes hard to find/not existent
Other Thoughts: Not a destination course

Good effort, but why?
Pros: +College is when I got into this wonderful game that we call disc golf so at least these kids can have that opportunity.
+A few ace runs here
+Putting on tube tones will probably make you a better player.
+There definitely is some risk/reward if you are into these type of obstacles.
Cons: -College courses almost always play too close to buildings, roads, parking lots, athletic fields, etc. This is no exception.
-Pedestrians, students going to class, are all over unless you pick a good time of day. I nailed it very early in the morning and only saw a few people (and didn't get a parking ticket)
-Tees are pretty hard to find as they are natural and are marked only by small markers in the grass. They could be easily stolen, moved, vandalized. Take a look at the map or print one from here or you might get lost.
-Baskets are tube-tones. I love chains.
-Hole 4 is blind. Dangerous.
-Few trees, most obstacles are man made.
Other Thoughts: -There really just doesn't need to be a course here. They don't have the room or the money for it.
-Play it if you go to school here or work here, otherwise it really isn't worth the hassle of parking and navigating this course.

Decent layout, but not much to work with
Pros: These tone poles are better than most, larger at the top with free flowing chains. Decent layout given the terrain to work with.
Cons: Parking off campus, hard to find and follow. A couple tee markers are nowhere to be found. Poles near parking areas and a baseball field, so playable ony if not occupied.
Other Thoughts: Will be fun for the college students, but not worth the trip for most players.

Not enough space
Pros: Tube-tone targets are ok for this course. They are less intrusive to campus, and there is only one blind pin (4, and I doubt you'll be running it with cars ten feet away). A very nice map (on the back of the course sign, also linked here on DGCR) points out the tees, which would be very hard to find otherwise. Each target is nicely painted with the hole number, facing the tee.
Cons: Most targets are placed very close to manmade obstacles like sidewalks, parking lots, fences, and walls. There are not many obstacles in the air. Most fairways are in water drainage areas. Most fairways cross others. The course is not a loop. The tee markers seem like they could easily be vandalized or moved. Need I go on? This course has enough problems that they almost erase the fun completely.
Other Thoughts: The best parking is probably on Grove St. near pin 9. Of course that is nowhere near the beginning of the course.
