Pros: Some of the holes have some thought behind them and can be fun. Kind of a make up your own shot course. Nice baskets to throw at.
Cons: If there is any kind of crowd there forget about it. Spray painted numbers on the bike path act as tee markers.
Other Thoughts: If you are open to using a little imagination you can have some fun at this course. A good place to work on specific shots in your game. With some improvments this course does have potential to be decent.

 Potential to be Better

Pros: This is a nice piece of property that has water in play down the middle of it, and some minor elevation changes that mix in well with the large trees. The course isn't very long, probably coming in at just under 2500', but the beginning half of the course makes up for it with trees. There is also a 19 hole layout that is marked with spray paint throughout the course, but you'll need the map from the links page to truly be able to play this layout.

BEST HOLE/S: #2
Cons: There are no real marked tees on this course. Fortunately, there is walking trail that doubles for many of the concrete boxes, but this is a real annoyance that affects this place ever being real quality course. Plus, playing from basket to basket on the traditional layout has a few confusing transitions from #1 to #2 and then from #4 to basket.

#7 and #8 can't be more than 150' with a small hill and lone tree being the only obstacle on #8. There is a soccer field located around #4, #5, and #6, so it can be an issue competing for space with the other park users. The water is great, but just note that if you throw you disc in the drink - it's going to be gone in the fast moving current.

WORST HOLE/S: #7
Other Thoughts: I love a course with potential. Part of me wishes this was my home course just so I could try and fix it. It has some really great areas by #2, #3, and #4, and you could tweak the design a bit and add some good tee markers I think you could have a really strong nine hole course. #7 and #8 would really have to be addressed since most would consider them throwaway, but this place was enjoyable even in its current shape. Plus, although I didn't play the 19 hole layout, it shows that people enjoy and care about this place, so unlike North Midway Park down the road, I think this course may have a bright future.

Pros: This is a nice little course to play a quick round on if you happen to be passing by or live in the area. The course is mowed and can be completed in less than 25 minutes. It is rarely crowded. There are a few nice technical shots around trees. The holes are short enough for anyone to enjoy.
Cons: There are no signs or tee pads, so it can be a bit confusing the first time out. Holes #2 and #3 border a concrete canal-like drainage ditch which can be a bit tricky to get in and out of if a disc goes into it. One hole flies over a soccer field and the next one borders it, but I have never seen anyone playing on the field.
Other Thoughts: This is a great place to have a large group picnic with disc golf as an optional side activity. There are two shelters, restrooms and electricity. Google the City of Broomfield for park rental information.
There is a marshy area among the trees between the highway and hole number 5. I would recommend keeping the disc to the left and in the field. Overall this could be a really nice small course if tees/signs were added and a few baskets were relocated.
