Ok to do that I'll have to maintain a cross-referenced list of courses to
post ids, and add new courses / delete them where necessary, but that sounds

Why do you specifically recommend Custom Post ids in this situation, rather
than Pages containing course information? Is it because it's easier to just
display courses with their information more appropriately, or another

Why can't you use option #3, update the existing pages?  (actually, you'd
almost certainly want to use custom post types instead of pages.)
