BEST Course in Denver!
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Dry Gulch is a fun course with immense variety. The tee pads are huge and there are three pin positions per hole. I played a short to medium length course which still greatly challenged me. Most of the holes play well to RHBH because the creek is almost always to your right off the pad. I love launching shots off a high tee pad to a low pin and there are several of these types of shots. The changes in elevation really surprised me because I thought the whole course would be in the creek bed. This course reminds me of a real golf course in that there are wide fairways, but trouble everywhere else. The mature trees add to the challenge (you do NOT want to land in the big pine tree pictured on #6). The course is really well designed given the narrow layout of the park.
Cons: The central location of the course in Denver could make it very crowded. Trash cans will be needed. I am guessing if you somehow throw it onto the rail tracks then your disc is gone. The creek was slow and clear so I had no problem getting my discs out of the water. The creek could become trouble after storms. 9 and 10 are closed which makes for a long (run in my case) walk to 11. The same can be said from 14 to 15 and then 17 to 19 with 18 out of play. The course is mostly thick weeds so you need to watch your step and your discs. The least challenging holes are 1, 15, and 16. Also there are one or two times that the fairways intersect which could cause problems if it is crowded. All these negatives really don't take away from the fun factor.
Other Thoughts: The creek occasionally comes into play and adds a serene feel to the course. #9 is currently out of play, but that will be a tough shot over the creek. The light rail frequently floats by and adds quite an urban feel to the course. If you take the light rail to Knox the station is 300 ft. from #1.

paco is back!!
Pros: Great challenging course. Has a variety of elevation shots and some long holes. Also, some tough shots along the creek keep it fun. Great pads and the layout is excellent. Super views and great park improvements since the addition of the lightrail. May make this the only lightrail accessed course out there.
Cons: Need more trashcans before the park gets trashed again!!
Other Thoughts: Bring water this is a long walk. Great to see it back as it adds some challenge and course diversity to the Denver area. If you like a more challenging course then this is for you!!
