Pros: It's cool that Shorter, where I went to school let a disc golf course be put in. It plays through the start of the "S Curve" as we called it and then along the walking trail.

There is some potential here. The woods and rough terrain makes the course pretty interesting.

The baskets are the new Prodigy ones that are pretty nice and the light green is pretty easy to see on most of the holes.

There are just a few great looking holes here. One is nice, five Is pretty good, and all of the final 4 are At least interesting.

Not a bad job of design in the extremely limeted space of the smallish campus.
Cons: It's not quite there yet. Tons of litter and old mini fridges, tires etc behind the dorms and near horseleg creek Rd.

Most of the wooded holes need some more clearing out to have a real line. And I'm not complaining for my game, but if you don't have a flick or are a lefty, it's not going to be a good day.

Personally I'm not a fan of how hard you have to putt on the Prodigy baskets, but they don't detract from the experience.

The walk between holes is pretty long on a few, and a lot of the paper signs have fallen down.

I'm fine with carpet teepads they have, but they are small and only about half the holes have them.

A lot of work still to be done.
Other Thoughts: Overall, I'm glad it's there. I'd love to see it improve, but more than that I wish it had been there when I was a student. You can learn some shots here and with some serious handiwork this could be a 3-3.5.

I'd love to see some cleanup and clearing out, and this place could be really nice as a technical course.

Don't look to air out your arm here. It's pretty short on most holes and even the long ones they aren't reachable in one because of the trees.

A good fairway and a stable mid will hit most lines on this one.
