Here's an aerial view of the course layout with the length of each hole.
Here's a "printable" map of the course.
The tee for hole No. 1 is in Lot A, the parking lot on the right side of the main college entrance, College Drive. For now, all the tee locations are marked with lath. The tees that use the parking lot and existing sidewalks will be marked with paint in the near future. The other tees will get pads this summer. For now they'll just be grass/dirt.
This is a 405 ft. hole that drops 20 feet in elevation. It is guarded by a giant, disc-eating, European Beech on the left and the entrance drive (out of bounds) on the right.
This is the view from basket No. 1 looking back to the parking lot and tee above. Hopefully the tree to the right in the picture doesn't become a victim of this year's drought. We lost a lot of trees on campus this summer and the grass, which usually looks like a "ball golf" course has really been damaged.
Hole No. 2 tees from the sidewalk across the road from basket No. 1, temporarily marked with a lath. This hole plays up hill, over the rise visible in the picture. The hole length is 400 ft. but the basket is 40 ft. higher than the tee pad, adding considerably to the effective length.
This is the view from basket No. 2 looking down the hill toward the tee. This basket is in a "V" with a sidewalk behind it and a parking lot along side it. Both are out of bounds. The basket is surrounded by trees that should keep most approach shots from reaching the OB areas.
Hole No. 3 is a short, 220 ft., anhyzer shot with three large evergreens marking the curve to the right. The first tree is a mandatory left. The sidewalk, parking lot, and drive up the hill to the right are out of bounds. If you have good sidearm throw you can park it on a regular basis.
This is what your putt looks like if the last tree knocks you down before the green. It's still a makable duece but the shot has to deal with the low canopy.
This is the view from No. 3 looking back towards the tee. Basket No. 2 is visible in the distance. The tee is tucked up along the landscaping that borders the drive somewhat visible to the left in the photo.
This is the tee for No. 4, tucked between two large blue spruce trees. The small tree immediately in view is a mandatory left. The basket is directly behind the fir tree that is visible behind the mandatory tree. At 185' ft., this is another very dueceable hole.
This is a view of a shot from the tee in front of the blue spruces. There will be a bench and possibly a water fountain at this location by the end of the summer. The horticulture program is going to work with us on several "course improvements" this summer, including benches, tee pads where needed, and possibly an information sign at No. 1.
This is hole No. 4's basket, tucked behind the evergreen. You can see the blue spruce tee location in the background and the small mando tree. The out of bounds sidewalk and parking lot are up the hill from the basket, maybe 30 or so feet.
Hole No. 5 is teed from a landing on the long stairs that climb the hill to the main building's entrance. It's a 265' shot but the elevation change (+20') makes it play more like +300 ft. The out-of-bounds drive is fairly close behind the basket.
This is Hole No. 5's basket. The fairway is right of the leafless tree in the foreground, which is a mandatory, and left of the visible evergreen tree further down the hill.
Hole No. 6 plays down a relatively steep hill (-20 ft.), lined to the right with willow trees and with low hanging branches to the left. It's a pretty cool location with the I-74 I-75 interchange and the millcreek valley visible below. It's a bit noisy though because of all the traffic.
This is a view from the tee looking down the hill towards the basket. The hole length is 300 ft. but it plays much shorter due to the drop in elevation. The large trees near the basket have relatively low hanging limbs that force you to keep your shot low.
This is a good view from No. 6 looking back up the hill to the tee.
No. 7's tee is in the wooded area between No. 6's basket and Central Parkway. The throw is away from the road and back towards the main staircase. The basket is located about 20' before the stairs. Throws on, or beyond the stairs are out of bounds. The very skinny tree is in the middle of the fairway. I should say "was" since it is now gone.
This is basket No. 7 as seen from the stairs, looking back towards the tee in the woods. There's a deceptive rise to the basket here, making the 290 ft. hole play a bit longer.
Since this picture was taken the tee has been moved to the right of the light pole visible in the picture. The distance is a flat 345 ft. The giant ginkgo tree to the right was awesome just two days before this picture was taken. Then it dropped a million bright yellow leaves all over the place.
This is just another view of No. 8's tee. The ginkgo is the largest of its kind east of the Mississippi and is one of dozen of specimen trees on the campus and the disc golf course. The goal is to eventually create a web site and a map that shows the major trees along with the disc golf information. A week before these pictures were taken the fall color was spectacular!
No. 8's basket has overhanging cedar tree leaves. They can be an aid to approach shots and a hindrance to putts. To the left of the tree the college propery is bounded by a large chain link fence. Beyond the fence is out of bounds. If your disc crosses the fence you can get to it by walking around and entering the funeral home rear parking lot.
The final hole plays up and over the slope leading up to Hole No. 1's parking lot. The parking lot is out of bounds. The basket is tucked down in a little oasis just beyond the far corner of the parking lot. The hole length is 320 ft. the basket is almost level with the tee pad but the slope coming down from the parking lot forces most people's shot to look like an uphill throw. Big arms will be able to go almost straight to the basket.
This is the view from the top of the slope looking down towards No. 9's basket. The property is bounded here by the chain link fence as well. Private residences lie beyond the fence. Avoid entering if at all possible. We don't want the disc golf course to alter the "good neighbor" relationship the college has with the adjoining land owners.
