Great place to take a first timer
Pros: Great place to take a first time golfer. If you avoid hole 2, there is zero chance of losing a disc here, and there are no trees to contend with.
Cons: The place can smell pretty foul as the ponds collect mildew. As a public park, there are a lot of people there on nice days, but the course is always wide open.
Other Thoughts: Every now and then, some drunken characters brave the pond to collect and sell lost discs. These guys found 15 of them yesterday. They will smell for days...

Pros: It is a good public park course. Has a few water hazards that make some of the holes challenging. Nice tee boxes and a well maintained course. Not hard to find your way around.
Cons: It is public park right next to a school. So if you play around the time the school lets out there are a bunch of kids running around in the way. Other than the water hazards, there is not any other challenges. Just kind of throw back and forth but that's expected from a public park course.

Pros: Open course with open shots...lots of grass.
Cons: Stinky ponds! Lots of geese and ducks. Vandalism on signage.
Other Thoughts: It was a wonderful way to spend a beautiful Sunday afternoon, but like everyone else the stinky ponds, goose poop and mud put a damper on things. We will probably visit again, but certainly not one of my favorites.

Pros: Good mix of short to long holes.
A couple tough pin placements.
Easy to navigate.
Traffic is moderate
Cons: Not much in the park to make it real challenging.
Very open. No real accurate throws needed to score well (-2).
The park is always wet. They water this place way too much.
Usually mud pits/severe drop offs behind tee pads.
Other Thoughts: Good warm up course.
Somewhere to go if you just want a relaxed round to throw. Not really challenging, but not a piece of cake... Big arm is needed on occasion.

Pros: Only course in this part of town.
Full lush grass fairways
Cons: Not many trees on this course and the only thing that makes the course challenging is the ponds. Problem is the ponds are disgusting and become deep immediately.. You throw in there and you're not getting it back. Lost a bunch of discs because of poor throws, high winds, or the fact the basket is right next to the bank.
Never been afraid to go in after a disc but not setting foot in these ponds.
Course hardly has any trees and far too many wide open shots.
Other Thoughts: If you lose a few discs and come back on the weekends you may very well be able to buy your disc back at a discounted price from a guy that looks like he's homeless so never had an issue buying disc from him. I sure am not going in that pond after a disc. Played one weekend and a tournament the next and bought back my own disc.
I have no interest in going back to this course when you consider how many technical courses with elevation changes there are in Denver.
I wouldn't recommend this course. Beginners are gonna lose their discs and experienced players aren't going to be challenged.

Nice grassy course
Pros: Open space, grassy (sandal friendly), long and short holes, built like a golf course without many holes around you congesting things at all, map at course head, easy to follow design
Cons: Could use a couple long long holes, but thats ok. Water in play on many holes, but not overbearing shots needed.
Other Thoughts: Nice course to play, by public school, many people biking walking around, but no one is ever in the way, skip on windy day for sure.

Pros: Varying shots. Water in play on most of the holes. Wide open. Concrete tee boxes.
Cons: Lack of vertical signs makes finding the next hole difficult. Easy to lose discs on a windy day. The lakes are very dirty and smell awful. Tons of bird droppings.
Other Thoughts: Skip this course on a windy day.

Nice... if you like geese
Pros: Well maintained grass, open (treeless) park. The ponds make up for the lack of trees regarding obstacles.
The pads are the highest quality I've played on.
Early morning play offers no crowds and friendly walkers.
This is a great first timer park as well. You really have lots of space to see what your discs will do.
Cons: Be advised that the flow of the park is very odd. I would strongly advise using this website and print off the scorecard that includes a map. Signage pointing out the direction of the next tee would be helpful.
Use caution in the mornings, the sprinklers come on without warning and use non-potable water.
It's evident to me this site is a former wetland as the soils do not drain well, and this is also the source of the odor noted in other comments.
Other Thoughts: I don't want to make this report sound awful. It really is a good park. Just bring a towel and be ready to wipe goose poo off your shoes and discs.

Pros: Although the course is pretty open OB sidewalks and water hazards make placement very important on 66% of the holes. Course is rather short. Hole 4 marked >400 is not 400'. Unless I can throw a Buzzz or a Pred spike hyzer 400+. Hole 8 plays longest, but is reachable for the average 925+ rated player. The course is well manicured, and mostly disc golf only used. The paths do get used, but usually only have to wait for 1 jogger per hole max.
Cons: Beginners get discouraged quickly losing discs often here. Only one placement per hole. While the concrete rings and gravel under the pins look great, a prefect shot that would usually stick in the lush grass of this course will often skip for a difficult putt.
Other Thoughts: This was my home course when I was learning how to play. Helped me develop a decent grasp of when taking risks is worth it. But now, its a less than exciting course, with my personal course record being a -16. Avg closer to a -6. Definately duce or die when playing competitively.
