Pros: This course is small but don't let it fool you. It is one of the best in Colorado, especially for being in a park.
1. The course is a quick 9 hole.
2. The course has so many different shots to make you work for your score.
A. Hole 1 is setup to where you have to fight two trees just to get to the pin and if you fire off to hard then you might find some water.
B. Hole 2 and 3 you are dealing with water. Hole 3 also is a beautiful shot for you to just open up on and test that distance.
C. Hole 4 has this tree that you can test a hyzer or anhyzer on and it gives you two totally different lay ups.
D. Hole 5 is the first real "ace" hole but don't be fooled, especially in the summer, with the overgrown trees working to knock your disc away.
E. Hole 7 is an ace hole also and definitely a fun one. You have got to get a beautiful shot slicing in between some mean trees. Hope you don't play the 2 meter rule!
F. Hole 8 is a another shot to open up on and is lined directly up with the out of bounds.
G. Hole 9 is one of my favorite holes. You fire off into a group of trees to where you can't see the pin from the tee, during the Summer.
3. The playground is setup to where it doesn't get in the way at all and it can be a plus if you have kids.
4. There are usually score cards available and also there are signs up for the course - good design.
Cons: There are definitely some cons but nothing to extreme.
1. You might have to worry about people getting in the way when playing since its a city park. The course is built around a local park that has a soccer field, playground, and shelters for rent - so you might run into a few people getting in the way. Honestly though it's not that bad and the people are usually pretty understanding to the sport.
2. The bathrooms are pretty bad and can really be redone but that is a city thing.
3. Hole 6 is the worst setup on the whole course only because the tee is close to the pin on 5 so watch your head and also the tee to the pin on 6 overshoots a skate half pipe where kids like to hang out so sometimes you might have to make sure your shot is no screw up.
Other Thoughts: The course definitely has its pros and cons but it is a very well designed course. A lot of people don't care for the water there but really I love the water because it makes it all more difficult, makes you have to test your skills.

Like any course it can surely use a little more work but since this was a volunteer built course and not sponsored by the city I am sure that will come with time. Make sure you play this course because you really won't regret it!

Pros: This course was a lot of fun and better than I expected even though I heard it was good. There is a good mix of technical and open shots. Plenty of shade and or covered picnic areas to seek refuge from the summer heat or a rainstorm. The layout is well put together for what the park has to offer and maintaining coexistence with other activities. I visited this course for the first time on a beautiful spring day when a moderate amount of activity was taking place. The creek looks like it could swallow up some discs if it were filled, adding to the challenge factor on the first three holes. Great signage on every hole point the way to the basket. All distances seem accurate.
Cons: The soccer fields could pose a problem if there are a lot of spectators, otherwise it should not be a big concern. The walking paths follow much of the course, but again, should not be too big a problem. Watch your tee shot on hole 5 as there is a chain link fence to the right and seems as though a less than stellar shot could go over easily. I'm not sure about access to the business beyond the fence as I, fortunately, did not have to find a way over. A well placed shot will stay in play easily.
Other Thoughts: New course in an established park which has plenty of mature trees makes this new course a pleasure. I drove down from Greeley to shoot and it was worth the drive.

Pros: The mature trees give obstacles to the short holes and make the open shots a little tougher. Concrete tees and new baskets are a plus. The course changes from winter to summer with tree growth. The park is well maintained and kept up. Holes 1 & 5 are great tunnel shots. Hole 9 forces shot accuracy through the trees. Hole #2 requires a long straight shot to stay dry. For as short as Hole #7 is, it is well guarded from an easy birdie.
Cons: Oftentimes other park users will be unaware of the fairways and set up other sports. The parties at the shelter near pad #2 often spill close to the fairway for that shot. If this happens we tee off at the big X on the ground to the right.
Other Thoughts: From Hole #1 walk across the parking lot near the bathrooms to Hole #2's tee. Hole #3 is across foot bridge on NE corner of the park. Signs are marked. Hole #8 is on the south side of the playground. This course would be a great glow round course.
