Nice course with goats nearby!
Pros: -Pleasant scenery
-Many goats in fenced in area near parking lot on way to hole #1. Fun to watch!
-Not too hard, which is a pro for an intermediate senior player like myself who was just in town for a day.
-Friendly people at the park
Cons: Not many, since the course seems just right given what the park offers. The dirt teepads detract a bit from an otherwise fun course to play.
Other Thoughts: If you are in town for a short time and looking to play a round, this is a great stop. Not only is the course fun, the fenced-in goats near the parking lot are a blast to watch.

Great beginner course
Pros: The foliage amount is perfect for a round in my opinion. Enough to make your technical shots count, but not so much that it defines the round.
Good mix of shots that are forced left/right.
Multiple ace holes. 1,2, 5,6,7,9 are all within distance that even a beginner can reach them.
The up/down holes on 3-5 are awesome. If you can clear the hill on 5, it goes a long way.
The 7th hole is a lot of fun, Very short, but has a creek to the left, so if you go for glory, you can be fishing.
The 8th hole is over a bigger lake, but it is easy to clear if it doesn't get into your head. It has a side tee for less experienced players.
They just updated the baskets
Cons: Very short. While the holes are reachable, you don't get many opportunities to go for it.
Disks tend to go missing on #5. It is a blind throw over a hill, and it has a tendency to roll a LONG ways. I've lost two discs on the hole alone.
Dirt tees. They are well taken care of, except for 8.
Insect problems. My buddy brought his two year old and he was bitten by some red ants the whole time. I've been stung by a bee before, and I'm not alone.
Other Thoughts: Because of it's short nature, I would recommend this course to a plethora of players. It helps an experienced player work on their shorter drives, and it helps a beginner work on their overall game w/o the frustration of 500+ ft. holes.

Short but sweet
Pros: Actually a pretty decent nine hole course for the small space and rocky terrain they put it on. There are good elevation changes, with one tee box overlooking the air guard playing into a blind throw and a 50' drop to the pin.
Three holes play along Dry Creek (as the name suggests though unless it's April or May the creek usually isn't an issue however the long grass can be.) Hole 8 plays over the water and can be tricky in the high wind, but the distance is fairly short so it's not a real issue for experienced players. For newbies, there is an alternate tee on the far left side of the lake that skips the water.
New players will be challenged, and experienced players should enjoy the elevation shot variation. The tees are clearly marked with big wooden posts, but you'll have print off yardage from this site since it's not marked anywhere. One other noticeable feature is the additional collar in the ground for every hole. All pins are currently in the "long" position, but being able to shift pins to keep the course fresh is a definite plus in my book.
BEST HOLE/S: #5; #8
Cons: Being on a fairly constricted piece of land, this will probably only ever be a nine hole course - but with the additional collars and varied terrain, it'll still get plenty of play.
Wind is always an issue, and the course plays by the greenway, so you'll need to be aware the people coming through on the path.
The dirt tees can get nasty after a storm, especially by the pond. Plus, even though the tees are clearly marked, it's aggravating not see any posted distances. I don't know why they can't mark off both pin locations on each hole and make some kind of map that could be at least posted online.
WORST HOLE/S: #1; #7
This is a good course for people in Cheyenne who want a change from the Dry Creek Parkway
course on the East side of town. The course clearly isn't to Dry Creek standards and overall course difficulty, but does has the true elevation holes that Dry Creek lacks. It also is much more polished and in a more popular spot than Ramero Park DGC
, which does have good elevation shots.
Overall, this may be the go to course for the next year or so until Dry Creek construction gets finished. Plus, Ramero looks to be under construction for much longer than that, so this course does a great job at satisfying your disc golf needs in the mean time. If you want a quick quality round of golf in Southeast Wyoming, Myler Park should at the top of your short list.
