Don't Sell It Yet
Pros: This course has so much land to work with. There are multiple basket locations that keep it different and make the course challenging.
Some very nice long open holes mixed in with some heavily wooded, very challenging holes. This course has so much potential.
Baskets are in great shape.
Cons: Tee signs are scattered across the course.
SOme holes have tee pads and some holes are natural pads.
Alot of blind shots without tee signs
No rhyme or reason to the course layout
No one takes care of this. Read below comments as I will go into detail.
Other Thoughts: After playing near all 17/18 of the holes with a google map gps tracker someone had uploaded, I ran into a local and played the course again. According to him, no one has been maintaining the course in years. He just moved there about two months ago. Said that he and a group of 3 other guys were beginning to place the tee signs back up on the rights holes. This would cut out alot of the walking around blind bc the tee signs actually have good layouts drawn up on them. There are two holes that need to be reworked so they have made two temp holes throwing to a basket twice from completely different locations. This is really a course I wouldn't suggest playing without someone who knows their way around it. HOwever, it was a very fun course once I got the tour from the local. Don't sell this course yet. Just keep watching for improvements and see what happens.

I didn't enjoy it.
-Parking is free and open to anyone on the weekend (otherwise you have to have a student pass to park...at least that is what the campus security told me)
-Course design isn't very creative
-Grass was about shin height
-No signs at the tees (I had no idea where the pins were on some of the holes)
-Baskets were pretty beat up
I'm not originally from that area, and it was insanely hot and humid when I went (June). I know this has nothing to do with the course itself, but it is a factor to consider when deciding whether or not to go to this course.

Pros: AUM's course is a wide open course with decent distance. This is another grip it and rip it course. Bring your driver and a putter and thats all you'll need so you can leave your big bag at home.
Cons: There's not a whole lot to the course. Very little OB a couple of mando routes means you have very little in the way of a challenge for accuracy (other than aiming for the basket obviously)
Other Thoughts: AUM is a nice course to play if you're in the area. The lack of trees makes it easy to navigate for new players but the distance could be a bit much. For pros or players with distance there's not a lot to it.
