Solid 9 hole course
Pros: This course sits on the beautiful University of Northern Colorado campus with lush green grass and mature trees. Yellow Discatcher baskets on all 9 holes and concrete tees throughout as well. The difficulty level is moderate to easy for pros and can be a fair challenge for beginners. Add extra difficulty by playing some sidewalk lines as OB. Parking is free Monday through Friday from 5pm-7am so get a pass when you enter the lot because tickets add up. Loaner discs/maps available to students in the rec center.
Cons: There can be quite a bit of foot traffic, being on a college campus, so try to be extra careful with your throws. Easy to memorize the course since there is just one pin position on every hole. No hole signage, no map on site, and no practice basket.
Other Thoughts: Good course to play when the area is not busy. Parking is free on evenings and weekends. Lots of ace opportunities!

Solid Campus Course; Some Variety
Pros: - The campus is well manicured and very pretty in the summer months.
- Teepads are numbered as well as baskets.
- Discatcher baskets catch well and haven't begun to rust.
-If you have a copy of the map (which can be picked up at the Rec Center by the pin of hole 2) navigation is simple.
- Variety of distances with Holes 1 and 9 being ~400 ft and 4 and 5 less than 200 feet.
-A great course for safari holes
Cons: -During the day student traffic will become an issue, especially on hole #3
-If you do not live close or have a student parking pass the only available parking between 8-5 on weekdays is pay to park.
-Hole 7 and 8 are pure filler, could have put the basket for 8 on top of the hill for a more technical shot, but for whatever reason didn't.
-No tee signs.
Other Thoughts: As a student at the University this is my home course and I've played it countless times over the past two years. A great course to learn the game on, and there is safari potential on almost every hole on the course (tee off from the little balcony behind the tee on 4 for example) which adds variety and difficulty. The pine trees on hole 9 eat discs like nobodies business, have someone standing out on the left side of the fairway to spot your disc on the drive just in case you go too far right. The course only takes ~30 minutes to play so a quick 18 is completely doable. This course isn't as technical, challenging, or well designed as The Outback in Greeley, but it's much more relaxed and pleasant to play. Worth your time to stop by if you're in the area.

Average, fun course
Pros: This is a great 9 hole course with nice tee pads and very well manicured green fairways. The holes vary in length from very short to medium length with large trees in play on a few holes. Elevation changes can make the holes challenging in the wind.
Cons: Most shots are wide open and not very challenging. The course in hard to play during the week when school is in session. There is a little bit of walking between holes.
Other Thoughts: Overall, the course is by far the best Greeley has to offer. The UNC campus is very nice and the people are friendly.
