2nd favorite CO mountain course
Pros: Next to Beaver Ranch/Conifer Community Park, this is my favorite mountain course along the 285 mountain corridor. The first hole has a chained basket made of wood which is an absolute thing of beauty!! One of the best things about this course is because of it's southern exposure, it can be played year round. Stink Finger Gulch creates several outstanding, testing holes. As already noted, bring your A-game for accuracy; otherwise, it'll be a long day and an over par round. 11-29-2009: all kinds of updates including several new benches, improved tee boxes, and better signage.
Cons: Tee boxes are natural. Shared baskets on many holes. One hole has chimes (but I love the chimes!!). Won't need too many drivers in the bag.
Other Thoughts: Undulating. Up and down all day long. One of the real nice perks is the course comes back to the house on a couple of occasions, which means you can refuel with drinks, etc. Almost every hole can produce a 2 or a 5. There are a few opportunities for sweet sky hyzers but mostly you'll be throwing rocs or buzz's or the like.
I've thrown a -9 and a +6 within 2 weeks time. When it's windy it's a real challenge as accuracy is a must.

Pros: Technical, Technical, Technical! This course is
one of the best in the area. If you want a real challenge, this course meets the Mt. mantra for cool. The owner recently upgraded to the Lightning Baskets, many of which he's added extra chain - they catch better than many public courses. You've got to be able to navigate many drop offs and elevation changes. Under par is a great score....I don't think there is a single hole where you don't have to navigate the trees. This course is really playable year round....since it has major southern exposure. A lot of thought went into the layout, better bring your A Mt./technical game.
Cons: Its not near any major urban center, but that might be considered a positive by some. There are now a couple of long holes plus technical, but you better be able to make it through from the tee or trouble may abound. Be careful retrieving a disc that goes OB on or past the highway....the traffic has some blind curves in the area.
Other Thoughts: This course is pure technical fun. I love the undulations with all of the drop offs. Please give back to the owner for his commitment to our sport. He now offers great deals on discs, beverages and attire. The pro shop along with the course upgrades make it a 5.
