Pros: Open holes with nice concrete tees. Layout of the course was nice.
Cons: All of the holes are open fields with a handful next to a pond.
No map of the course.
Other Thoughts: Length of the holes was good. A few more trees would be nice.

Pros: Easily accessible course in Denver in a very nice park with long open throws. Park is wide open and very well groomed grass.
Cons: Not a very challenging course but there are still a few throws over water hazard lakes and creeks that can make your disc impossible to recover.
Other Thoughts: If in Denver I would definitely play again.

 Geese Galore!

Review By: chrisgoldtop
Played: 35  Reviewed: 1  Exp: 14.6 Years
Pros: -Clean Park
-Water hazards, which I like.
-Concrete Tee pads
-Easy to find next tee pad for first timers
Cons: -Losing your disc in water
-For the most part too wide open
-Geese are everywhere in the winter
-Surprisingly busy
Other Thoughts: I actually enjoy this course. I always like courses with water hazards that make you focus a little more. I saw two people get their disc and fall through the ice into the lake. Be careful out there!

Pros: Very nice park, Played in the MHDGC Tags match, great way to start the new year. The ponds were frozen and the Geese were flying.

Good variety of shots needed
Cons: When the ponds are not frozen you better bring some way to retrieve your disc in case you throw a little of course, lots of water here.

Fun Quick Course

Pros: The course had a great lay out as it went throughout the park. Water came to play in most of the holes. The ponds where frozen solid on New Year Day and if you are new to the game you should play this course in the winter. It will keep you from losing your disk to a water hazards. One of the best marked tee box courses I have played with the distances marked in the concrete throwing pads.
Cons: GOOSE POOP! Even on the frozen snow covered ground you could see the grounds are covered in it. Do not wear your good shoes to play as they will need a cleaning after a round of golf. They need to extend the holes to have a few par 4 or 5 holes. The park does not have much for obstacles to throw around and it felt as though I was having to hold back during tee off. I could throw directly to most holes and even past many if I really let one rip. After playing one hole you felt as though many of the holes played the same just sightly shorter or longer.
Other Thoughts: If in the area you need to stop by and play this course, but they really need to figure out how to get rid of the geese. I would offer up another half star if they got rid of them. The only thing that keeps this course from 5 stars is that and the lack of obstacles and no long holes.

Classic Suburban Denver

Pros: Nice neighborhood, feels very homey.

Great open feel. Lots of room for a busy first round of the year.

Very typical use of open space in Denver Metro Area. A low lying patch of land that serves as runoff for storms and floods.

Some longer holes encourage beginners like me to focus on form for maximum distance.

70+ people came out to play on New Year's Day. This is a popular course, and a must-play among the big courses in the region.
Cons: Wide open space. Few mature trees. I got sunburn from the reflective snow on January 1!

I'd bet, given the general geography of this park, that it is wet and sloppy after a melt or a storm.
Other Thoughts: The pond was frozen solid today, and many golfers went out to bring errant discs back. There was a good flow of water in and out of the pond, though, and I worry that the ice may be less forgiving on other days.

Pros: -Good, full color map near the practice basket. Encased in a polyurethane case to protect it from the elements.
-Practice basket with plenty of room around it to warm up on those long putts
-Over half the holes have water in play, and except for hole 13, have very good basket positions to make them challenging yet not fustrating
-A few open bomber holes for the big arms to enjoy as well
-Tee number and distance carved directly into the back of the teepad, so no need to worry about vandalism
Cons: -Biggest gripe is the teepads. The have little channels grooved into them, I assume to funnel off water, bit makes run ups feel weird.
-While the layout is mostly intuitive, the lack of teesigns can make a few holes hard to find
-Tons of goose and duck feces on the teepads, sidewalks and baskets. Not Mich anyone can do a out that, but its really gross.
-Aside from the water, there's really no other obstacles, just a few random trees, but none that require any true shot shaping
Other Thoughts: Super busy park, which is a good thing for the sport. But its best to come with a group because, even in the winter months, you'll probably be waiting around a bit. Lots of non-disc golf traffic as well so as always, be respectful, and you're better off yelling "heads up!" Than "fore!" As they wont know otherwise.

Overall, a fun park that is pretty average. The water makes it pretty cool and adds more challenge than most park courses usually have. Begginers and intermediates are the target audience, but advanced players will ti.d some fun here too.
FAVORITE HOLE: 2; a 250 foot straight shot across the pond. A super fun little ace run that I hit chains on multiple times. Just a cool hole all around.
LEAST FAVORITE HOLE: 13; a long hole known locally as "The Island." Big arms may like it, but for my skill level it was just a stupid pain in the butt.

Water!

Pros: -There is water in play on a lot of the the holes. Many of the baskets are near water, which really makes you decide whether you want to go for it or play it safe. A couple of the holes throw directly over the water. The ponds on the course are by far its best feature.
-The course has very nice DGA baskets
-The park is well groomed and taken care of and the only place you will probably lose a disc is in the water
-Very nice, big concrete tee-pads that have the hole number and hole distance marked directly on them
-Several of the holes have some elevation change on them
-A decent amount of distances ranging from about 190 feet to about 400 feet
-Information board and practice basket
Cons: -The course is very wide open and does not have very many trees or other obstacles. The only major obstacles this course has is the water hazards
-The course gets pretty repetitive after a while as most of the shots are just straight wide open shots, with very few doglegs right or left
-There are really no truly challenging holes on this course or any holes that are really that memorable.
-The course has no tee-signs, which can make it a little hard to find the next tee-pad at times
-The course is a little hard to navigate at times. There are not markings pointing you to the next tee and there are some long walks between several of the tees, which can lead to navigation issues. A sign pointing to the next tee would be really nice.
-The information board and practice basket are nowhere near the first tee, which can make it confusing to find the first tee-pad
-The park is a very busy park with a lot of non disc golfer traffic it and has lots of people walking all over the fairways and nearby sidewalks, which could lead to quite a few safety issues
Other Thoughts: Overall, this is not a very memorable course. Non of the holes are very challenging or stand out very much. Despite the fact that the course is not very hard, I find it would be frustrating for beginning players because of the amount of water on the course, which could lead to a lot of discs going into the water. Overall, its not a bad course but it is also not a very exciting course.

 Great Practice Course

Pros: I dig the open fields for long drives, especially practicing a different type of throw. Concrete tee boxes are a major +. The front nine is a smooth transition across open fields with little obstacles. The back nine starts throwing water, trees, and brush in your way to close out your round with a slight challenge increase.
Cons: No real shade at the tee boxes. You will find yourself waiting on this course from time to time, and a little shade would be nice. Water.... specifically hole 13 & 14, if your a lefty watch slinging it over the water hoping for it to roll back. If the wind is up even a litte, it can carry you out, and its not getting recovered. Bogged out holes is another issue on this course if the water level rises from rain. Hole 9 (the basket) & 10 (the tee box) can completely disappear. If there has been any rain, wear some good mud shoes lol.
Other Thoughts: In general, great practice or beginner course. If your showing up and throwing alone, take a few minutes to just hit the practice pin. Groups always meet up, and other singles meet up there, so you're bound to be able to hop into a group if you want.

 Decent intro course, great for wind practice

Pros: Lots of great rolling hills or flat grassy areas making it difficult to lose discs in anything other than the water hazards (see cons below). Great wind that can either help you learn to throw and what to throw in windy conditions or really screw with your "normal" game. Even long tees are fair to make par. Had some near aces and long puts with a new player friend.
Cons: Water hazards are fine if you can get to your disc in the hazard. Unfortunately over half of the tees are right up against muddy, smelly, and relatively deep looking ponds/lakes. The areas between the ponds are just creeks but the brush on each side of the creek can easily "eat" a disc, never to be found when it's likely right in front of you. We got lucky and didn't lose anything but saw several other folks that weren't so fortunate. Highly unlikely you will lose anything if you play smart/careful but the wind can really mess with that when you have long throws right at a basket up against the water.
Other Thoughts: Though these types of courses are not as fun or challenging as others in the area, they are great for practicing your technique and learning the game or how a new disc handles. Creates a more even playing field when playing with someone that has less experience playing. Less likely to waste a bunch of time looking for discs like many other courses nearby.
