hyzer bomb all day long.....
1 Helpful / 1 Not
Pros: 27 holes and a 6 mile hike is sure to satisfy your dg craving!
-Some of the longest dg holes i have played, but par gos up with the distance. (longest was 800+)
-Great exercise with elevation changes and about a 6 mile hike.
-can rip @ your drives and not worry about your hyzer. in fact, you want a little hyzer on most so you dont end up on the light rail in the valley
-will test your endurance and ability to stay focused for the long haul. One shot does not make, or break, your round.
-some drives will require distance and placement to keep par attainable. dont sweat it, as even the more experienced players will be posting some bogies .
Cons: -6 mile hike wore me down a bit
-Around the middle of the course, a couple of baskets are missing and makes for a slightly confusing walk to the next basket.
-maybe a little unsavory in some areas along the creek
Other Thoughts: Bring something you rarely turn over, as right turning shots will glide a mile down into the valley. If you do turn one over into the valley you might find three other drivers while looking for yours........I did. I saw one guy riding his long board, as the course fallows concrete path most of the time. I could have used a jazzy by the end!

Pros: -Concrete tee pads
-easy to navigate and access
-good variety of shots
-good basket placements
-some elevation change
-challenging for good players but easy enough for beginners to learn on
Cons: -Lots of pedestrians and bikers on the fairways
-Some holes are not in-play right now because of revegation
-Could be maintained a little better
-Lots of "sidewalking", you end up doing a lot of walking down concrete paths that makes the course feel a lot more spread out than it has to be
-a few holes are setup awful, shots straight down sidewalks that have bends so there could be someone coming around the corner as you release your drive.
Other Thoughts: It's a good course, they just need to rethink a few of the holes for the safety of everyone.

Pros: -Good long tee-pads on each hole
-The tee-signs are good on this course (They show the pin placements, the layout of the hole, and distances).
-This course features a lot of elevation change, including uphill, sidehill, downhill etc.
-If you like to throw far, this is the course for you as at least one pin position on most of the holes is over 450 to 500 feet.
-Some of the holes have some nice risk/reward especially on the holes that play down near the river.
-Good mix of some wide open holes, wooded holes and holes that use the available obstacles well.
-Multiple pin positions on every hole
-Two or three holes have multiple tee-pads
-The closest course to downtown Denver
-The creek comes into play on some of the holes and a few pin positions cross over the river.
-Baskets are in pretty good shape.
-The course is very easy to access from the lightrail as the course plays past two lightrail stations.
-Course map at the beginning, which is good because you are going to need it.
-This course has a lot of fun well-designed holes that will challenge most players. And if some of the holes are in the right pin position, there are some legitimate par-4s which Denver has been sorely lacking.
Cons: -This course can be hard to navigate at times. There are a lot of long walks between many of the holes, and unless you play with someone who has played the course before you will spend some time looking for the next tee-pad.
-One or two tee-signs are missing, and several of the tee-signs have graffiti all over them, which makes them almost impossible to read.
-Due to it's length this course takes a very long time to play, for solo player it take 2+ hours to play, so make sure you have plenty of time to play this course.
-Lots of other park users that can get in the way of the course. This is mainly only a con on the first 8 holes or so, and then you get away from the main part of the park. The first 8 holes had a lot of people sitting or playing in fairways or under the trees.
-At times, this course got repetitive due to the distance on all of the holes. When we played almost all of the holes, were in there longest pin positions. If the pin positions were varied up more than just the long positions, the distance would be more balanced and make the course more fun for players of all skill levels. If you don't have a very big arm this may not be the course for you.
-No benches or trashcans at any of the tee-pads. This course is a very long walk and some benches at tee-pads would be nice to rest on.
-Parts of the park, especially the back 9 can get overgrown and there is a high possibility of losing a disc.
-If you have a bad shot that goes into the light rail tracks, it is very likely gone for good.
-A few holes play back over each other.
Other Thoughts: I never got to play this course before it got pulled for the lightrail construction. I am very glad that it is back. While it has it flaws, it feels unique compared to some of Denver's other courses. If you have the time to play this course, it is definitely worth a stop.
