Not.as bad as everyone says!
Pros: ---Fun layout
---Tone poles which add to the challenge! ( this may be a con to those who are unfamiliar with object golf)
---Aside from the toxic sludge pond the park is immaculate
---The locals are all awesome and super chill
---Plenty of parking
---Great use of a small patch of land. Some open shots, but a fair amount of obstacles in the way as well.
Cons: ---Tees are marked with little markers in the ground, and are thus hard to find
---No signage. At all. I almost missed the park entirely.
---Tone poles aren't marked with numbers, and in a cramped spot like this it becomes an issue
---Too easy for average players, too hard for begginers
Other Thoughts: I don't know why anyone would hats on this course. Its fun! If you show up expecting anything other than a short, tone pole course then yeah, it will be a letdown. But bring the positive vibes and you'll have fun.
This course is not crowded (unlike every other Denver area course) but there are still locals who will show you around. We might up with two guys and they made the experience a treat.
Its in a weird spot (right off the highway and next to the Pepsi Plant and the Denver Coliseum) but its actually quite peaceful. If you're in the area (the Coliseum has tons of events...park and catch a round!) Hit this course up for a nice change of pace. They even have a league on Thursdays, the Globeville Goons. Far from a destination course, but fun when you're there.

Pros: This course is close to work and with the waning daylight hours it was a nice play afterwork. I think the course uses the land very well. The park was well maintained and clean. It was quiet when I came. The shots are short so most players can make in 2-3 strokes.
Cons: The tube tone baskets did not allow my disc to hit the chains and give it the lovely sound we all strive for. The lack of tee pads and signage made it hard to navigate. I had to ask a couple other players to help me out. Once you know the design it can be played rather quickly. There was a homeless man in my way to shoot 4, but I shot around him. The park needs a little better signage or at least an indication for where #1 begins.
Other Thoughts: Bring the course map or someone who has played the course along with you. Some shots require going around trees and along a busy train track. The view on one side of the park is nice with the Platte River although it does not come into play unless you hit a shot hard left on #2. The view on the other side is the Denver Coliseum and the Pepsi bottling plant. It is in industrial Denver, but surprisingly a nice park. I would recommend this course if you work close and wanna throw a few after work.
