Englewood MetroPark DGC
Pros: Nice course in the Englewood Reserve. Not much trash. Heavily played. Most holes of decent length. Mowed fairways. Only takes about an hour and 30 minutes. Extra large rubber teepads and new DISCatcher baskets. Lots of people to help you. Numbers on baskets.
Cons: No teesigns or markers. Just rubber on the ground. Confusing if playing for first time. Need a course map.
Other Thoughts: 12 has a cool pin placement. I was expecting a course with no fairways and trees everywhere. I was impressed by the layout. If it had teesigns, I would give it a 4.5. Should be a great course for a quick round. 5 minutes from airport.

Pros: Fun and interesting layout. It wasn't terribly challenging but it was obvious some thought was put in to each hole with respect to the relatively small amount of land devoted to it. This course is quite new so I expect it will improve over time.
Cons: The tees need to at least be marked with the hole number. There were several other people there throwing but if not I would not have gotten all 18 in. The baskets are clearly marked but going all the way to the basket and back to verify the hole number is unacceptable. Just some spray paint on the pad would be better than nothing for now.
Very odd switchback on #17 and #18. That's the only hole I got really turned around on. I played #18 first then realized my mistake and threw #17. Signs will resolve this.
Other Thoughts: Great course to stop in and play if you are passing through. It is literally five minutes from the airport. If you land and want to get a round in before hitting the road, this is the spot. I threw it right before turning in a rental car and flying out. Excellent location for that!

Pros: The scenery on this course is great. The course is situated in the middle of a large nature park so there are few signs of civilization. You are surrounded by trees and wildlife, a lake, and a grass-covered dam.
The course flows well and it is not too difficult to navigate even without a course map.
Cons: I wish this course was a little more challenging. I shot a -3 (playing all holes as par 3), and I'm not that great.
There was significant traffic, but I guess that should be expected given the great atmosphere and "new-ness" of the course.
Other Thoughts: This course is definitely worth a visit. Be prepared to birdie (I hit three in a row - Turkey Time!)
