Pros: -- Well maintained, even the grass, because it's on a college campus.
-- Good use of elevation and water (two or three holes).
-- Good baskets (Innova Disc Catcher)
-- Easy to navigate. I never needed to look at a map.
-- The park is nice and there is a pavilion near No. 1 and the parking lot.
Cons: -- Natural tees
-- Some boring filler holes (1 and 4).
-- No benches at the tees, although there were some on the walking path nearby.
-- No restrooms.
-- No trash cans.
-- 9 holes.
-- A couple of holes have some safety concerns. No. 3 basket and No. 4 tee are too close together. And No. 9 plays between two sand volleyball courts.
Other Thoughts: -- Two of the more interesting holes have a good chance of having the basket surrounded by water. No. 2 fairway had water on it, and the basket is a few feet from the end of a drainage ditch. It is a short (210?) RHBH hyzer around a line of bushes to an inset basket. The bushes and rough are thick. On No. 5, the basket is 15 feet from the lake. I can imagine the water reaching the basket at times.
-- There are large red flags near each basket, which seems like overkill given the open nature of the course, the shortness of the holes and the yellow Innova baskets.

Pros: - New baskets
- New signage
- Several types of shots (uphill, downhill, over water)
- Very little chance to lose discs
- Beginner friendly but somewhat challenging for experienced players
- Clean
- Low traffic

Cons: - only 9 holes
- wide open (could be a pro for some)
- no concrete tee pads
- a little bit too easy
Other Thoughts: This is a brand new course located at East Central Community College, which is where I got my associates degree. I was super excited when I found out they were putting in a disc golf course, because this area has almost no courses. I think that having this course on campus is going to introduce a lot of new people to disc golf, which is awesome.
Having played the course a couple of times, I have a few comments.
It is very open. I understand that you have to work with what you have and I think they did a good job, but it is still very wide open. Hole 1 is just a straight up shot. 2 plays right beside some thick woods, but you can lay up for an easy birdie. 3 plays over water but is a short throw that should be easy for most. 4 is a pretty long throw to a basket guarded by a cedar tree. 5 is an open shot but the basket is on somewhat of a peninsula so water is in play. 6 goes up the hill and is a par 4 but should probably be an easy 3 if you have a decent arm. 7 plays back down hill but is open. 8 is basically open but the line makes you throw around some trees. 9 is a straight shot but trees take away the hyzer line so it adds some difficulty.

Over all, this is a fun course to play. Most holes are pretty easy to par but tough to birdie (I've shot -1 or even every time I have played) and with the addition of 9 more holes could be a really good course. It is definitely worth checking out

 A nice little 9 hole park course.

Pros: -Well maintained grass
-Good use of elevation
-Not much rough to deal with (hard to lose a disc)
-New baskets
-Easy to navigate
-Pretty park
-Water on 2 holes if that's your thing

-I talked to the course designer and he said they are going to add another 9 through the woods at some point in the near future. UDPATE 11-2-15
Cons: -9 holes, do not know if they are going to expand to 18
-Some short holes
-Grass tees
Other Thoughts: This is a nice little 9 holer on the ECCC campus. It is a new course located on the grounds of the campus park. As I was playing this course I was thinking the area through the woods on the back side of the lake would be a great place to extend the course to 18 holes. Right now it is a typical 9 hole park course. It is very well maintained as far as grounds keeping goes and uses the space it occupies well.

It starts with a standard short hole off the first tee then proceeds to the only hole where true rough comes into play with a short drive down the side of the woods to an inset basket. Hole 3 is the first water hole with a drive over the edge of the pond. Hole 4 plays through the center of the park with a couple of trees that may come into play depending on the line you choose. Hole 5 plays to a basket on the edge of the pond so water is in play again. Hole 6 plays up a hill to a blind basket at the top. Hole 7 plays down the hill for a nice drive to air out a disc. 8 plays through a few trees and 9 brings you back to the start with a mostly wide open drive.

This course uses the space it occupies well and starts and ends at the parking lot. I did not pay attention to see if there were any trash cans as I pack out my trash so never look for cans. Also since it is a 9 hole course I didn't look for any benches but I don't recall seeing any on the course. There are bathrooms at the parking lot that I noticed.

I enjoyed the rounds I played here as I went in knowing that it was a 9 hole park course and was not expecting an 18 hole pro course. If you want to teach someone the game or play a nice little 9 holer this is a good course to do it.
