Pros: This is a fairly wide open course that does a sort of loop around a set of lakes. The tee pads are all extremely nice, long, and made of concrete. Most holes on the course are around 300 feet, some are more some are less. They did a good job with what they had in this park. It is basically an open field with a few large ponds and minimal trees. However, the designers tried to make almost all of the trees incorporated into holes. While they may not be the hardest pin placements, there was some effort put forth. This place will certainly have you aiming away from the water. If you are an accurate or moderately good discer you will not have to worry about this as the water usually lies next to a very large and open fairway. A few holes are aceable, but most are just easy straight shots at a long distance. That being said, there are a few holes with pins next to the water adding for a little bit of excitement. This is a large park, and there are few other parkgoers. It is great to see that they at least give locals a course to play on and a place to get the sport out there to new players. The course is also easy to follow. Great for a introductory-to-mid level player. Not quite introductory due to the abundance of water.
Cons: There is very little variation to this course. Most are straight shots, and for good players the large lakes are easily avoidable adding little excitement. By the 18th hole, you feel as if you have thrown the same shot almost every time. The grass is nicely trimmed and open, but the lack of trees makes the average player underwhelmed. There is not much to say besides this course is a typical decent course... not much creativity, not much variety, but in a nice park.
Other Thoughts: This course is certainly not a destination. It is a great course for those who live in the area, but the lack of variation will leave the avid discer upset after 18 holes.

  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.

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.
