Pros: This is a nice, fairly challenging course along the Colorado River that offers a variety of holes from doglegs to tight wooded holes to open fairway shots. Elevation changes and lots of O.B. made things more enjoyable for me. The first few holes play openly in nice grass, then the holes become more wooded and play closer to the river. Hole #5 is a hanging basket suspended by trees. One hole appeared to be in the river, but as we approached it, we saw it was just close to it. There aren't many holes that would intimidate amateur players, making it a decent beginner course. Tee signs are a nice touch and help with navigation. There are bathrooms in the park area which is nice to have.
Cons: The pads are natural. The holes are a bit short, mostly under 300 ft.. I got confused on a hole because there was no sign or noticeable pad, so we had to ask a local and found a big log that was used for the tee area. The course gets pretty nasty after snow melting or rain showers.
Other Thoughts: This was the first course we played on a trip to the western slope and a great way to start the journey. Although I would say Riverbend Park in Palisade was a much nicer course for the area, Fire Mountain is definitely worth playing if passing through.

Favorite holes: #3, #5, #7, #13

Pros: Plays along the Colorado River, tight shots, short shots, open shots and some elevation changes, this 9 hole course has a good variety of holes.
Thumber lovers will love this course.
Plays fast for a nice quick round.
Cons: Only 9 holes.
Most holes can be reached no problem with a mid-range or putter.
Very dusty due to the very fine sand from the river.
