Pros: The only course in Castle Rock. Somewhere to play a quick round as it is almost never crowded. Some mix of distance but nothing all that drastic. Very hard to lose a disc. Can offer enough challenge to those who have played before but is also a great course for someone being introduced to disc golf.
Cons: No trees! Almost no obstacles to give a variety of shots, if you can throw the right distance and straight this course will be very easy for you. Some of the lengths posted seemed inaccurate to me.
Other Thoughts: Other than spending a ridiculous amount of money on landscaping and many other upgrades, not much can be done. I feel like this course is about as good as it will ever be, which is somewhat disappointing. Overall a good course that is available for people that live in or near Castle Rock.

Mw New Home course
Pros: Great views of the surrounding area. Easy to find the next Tee and holes when the fairways are mowed. The terrain is great on the Back Nine, with the caprocks and a little more elevation change. Teepads in good if not great condition. Map and signage are in good condition. In nice neighborhood with great park and playground nearby
Cons: Windy days can make an enjoyable round into a nightmare. Best to play earlier in the day before the afternoon thundershowers hit. The front nine is a little boring with pretty much just straight long throws. If it's not too hot, wear long pants for the brush. Occasionally we have Mosquito troubles, but it hasn't been too bad lately. A can of OFF might be a good accesory though
Other Thoughts: I moved to Colorado, and literally live down the road from this course. I've played it a lot due to convenience. I'm not going to say it's my favorite, but it does the job. As I said earlier, play in the morning, when it's not as windy. If you only have time for 9 holes, play the back nine. Using the Cap Rocks as virtual "hazards" makes it a lot more fun and adds a lot more strategy to the course. We play that if your disc is sitting on top of any exposed rock formation you get a penalty stroke, but still play it from where it lies. Grip it, rip it and air out on the front nine. Fairly long course and good if your in the area.

Castle Rock Course
Pros: A few holes are over more of a "rock" landscape and were very enjoyable. Very easy to find your disc. A good variety of long and "not as long" holes. If your in the Castle Rock area, or making a trip there, it is a pretty good course.
Cons: Most of the terrain was a heavy dose of weeds. Some might call it brush, but it wasn't fun stomping through. The overall course layout was a little confusing for this first timer. Holes 1-3 are across the street from the rest of the course which is where I obviously walked over to. I spent some time looking for the first tee.
Other Thoughts: Once I did find the first tee, there was a sign posted about the course being on a "future school site." Says the course will either be moved or closed when the school is built.
