Winter season short days
1 Helpful / 2 Not
Pros: Map is available and course is easy to navigate for first time users. Bathrooms and parking is available by tee #1.
Other Thoughts: Great course. Plenty of holes to challenge your tight shots and plenty of open holes to test your arm. First time playing, I arrived at 430Pm on a winter day, Finish 18 holes as it was getting dark, only took 80 minutes to complete a round of 18. Not all holes are Cleary marked but with a map and a little common sense, it is easy to find the next tee box. Holes located in the woulds have big rocks to mark the tee pads.

Always a fun course to play!
5 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: A good mix between wooded and open holes.
Lots of different shots required off the tee which always makes for a fun round
Hole 12, 15, and 18 are a blast
There is a great group of guys at Aum that keep the course well maintained, and they care about making it better.
Always a challenge because it's usually windy out.
Cons: Not all holes have great tee boxes.
Signage is coming soon from what I last heard. If you don't have a map it is hard to find the holes.
This course really could use some new baskets
Holes 19 and 21 really could be used more effectively boring t-shots
people are always walking on the cart path which really can cause congestion on the course.
Other Thoughts: I really do like the design of the course, there are plenty of shots where you can rip it! Also this course will only get better over time, because the people in the River Region care about it. If you've just moved to the are they have a great league. Definitely worth the drive to play if you are close.

Ok but needs a lot of work
4 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Good length
Mostly open - good for drives
On campus so grounds are mostly maintained
Cons: Poorly marked or not marked at all tee's
Little to no course direction
Mostly open - bad for really sunny hot days
Baskets are not marked
Holes grouped close together at times
#11 is right next to the parking lot which puts you in sever danger of hitting a car
Other Thoughts: This course needs work. I would not have found most of the holes without the map that's on here and the UDisc app. Even then I still couldn't find 13. Tee pads are sometimes concrete, sometimes dirt, sometimes a floor mat. Not a single basket is marked which gets tricky when the holes are near each other. I feel like with even just a small amount of maintenance this course could be great but as of right now it's pretty tough to keep track of where you are.

Local golfer review

Pros: Fairly diverse holes. Some heavily wooded holes that will challenge your skill level to hit lines.
Very open holes to compliment the wooded holes to help get you back to even.
Good elevation changes, nothing too drastic.
This course will put every shot you have in your bag to the test at some point.
Mini local club sanctioned tournaments The first sunday of every month.
Cons: Some of the fairways get tight when the trees grow back in during summer time.
Missing Signage. Local club has a map posted to this page. It helps, however, tee boxes are mostly natural tees and not perfect.
Some damage baskets(still playable) and tees.
Difficult to navigate without the map.
Other Thoughts: This course has a LOT of potential but due to recent construction on AUM's campus many holes were relocated from their original positions and thus all existing signage was rendered unusable.
This course is VERY fun to play, if you can navigate it. Take the time to follow the map, once you know the layout it's a very fun 22 hole course.
DO NOT CUT ANY TREES OR BUSHES. We've had a lot of issues with people widening the wooded holes fairways. These holes are supposed to be difficult! The current course record is -10, it's not hard, just learn to throw better!
The local club, River Region Disc Golf, does what it can to keep the course playable and are in the process of getting signage in order so that players can at least find their way around the course.
Typically, local golfers are very eager to show new or out of town players the flow of the course. If you'd like to navigate yourself there is a map on this webpage. OR you can goto facebook and search for river region disc golf club and contact someone directly for help!
This course will get better in the coming years, and hopefully more courses will pop up soon!

nice course, needs better signs
Pros: There were some fun woods holes and well maintained grass on field holes. There are over 20 holes.
Cons: lack of signs or miss marked. unstandardized tees made it hard to find where some of them were.
Other Thoughts: I liked it and plan to go back again.

Decent Course in need of signage!
Pros: - Has both wooded and open holes.
- Good elevation changes and use of the land.
- Course is laid out around the beautiful AUM campus.
- Fun course that incorporates all types of skills; technical, distance, anhyzer, hyzer, low ceiling.
Cons: - NO SIGNAGE! I played this course with a buddy who found the overhead course map online. Without it there is no way we would have known where to go. Every now and then there were spray painted markings indicating the hole number, which helped. However, this course is in desperate need of signs near the tee boxes.
- Uses "natural" tee boxes. Some happen to be on walking paths which helps. However, most are areas where the grass has been beaten down. Some were completely MIA so we threw from the general location according to our online map.
- A few pins are in rough shape. Most are just old but completely serviceable. One is a complete joke with half the basket smashed inward.
Other Thoughts: The main point is this; the course design is very good but without signage or obvious tee boxes it is nearly impossible to play this course without the online map. THE MAP IS UNDER "LINKS/FILES"!!
This course could without question be a 3 - 3.5 if signs were installed and a few baskets were replaced.
It was definitely worth the drive from Auburn to play the course and I would play it again!
