Pros: I like to think of this one as the rougher, longer, steeper, and more challenging big brother course to nearby Village Greens. The course utilizes elevation changes and unique landscape to keep things interesting. One of the few long(ish) courses in town that consistently forces you to use your long driver. Even with minimal signage course is fairly straightforward and easy to navigate. Conveniently located right off the freeway and complete with a dirt parking lot, picnic tables, and a course map kiosk.
Cons: Like many have mentioned vegetation can be somewhat rough depending on the season and time of year. Early on in the season it really wasn't bad at all, but after a rainy spring I can already see it becoming a jungle. Most of the really bad vegetation can be avoided with well placed shots, but this is easier said than done. Wind is almost a constant factor with the open nature of the course. It's pretty much inevitable that you will end up buried in something and have to spend some time searching.

Definitely not a course for beginners. I could see this being a very frustrating place to learn how to play because of distance and terrain alone. Would recommend mastering some of the other courses around town before you try to tackle this one.

Tee pads are really narrow on certain holes and are generally inconsistent in size. Also, the pads are made out of an Astro turf material which is better than nothing, but not exactly an ideal surface.

In general the course is somewhat of an unattractive place to be. This is just kind of the nature of the course due to the constantly rough terrain, rough vegetation, proximity to drainage ditches, and trash scattered about. I realize this is most likely the reason the course exists in the first place, but there's no reason it has to look so dumpy in areas, especially considering its part of a regional park system. You would think they would try to take a little more pride in the place.
Other Thoughts: This course seems to be the outcome of a park system having a chunk of land that could literally serve no other purpose and there's really nothing wrong with that. There is a lot of room for improvement, but I'm really happy the course exists at all. It seems like there are many other similar locations around town that could be utilized for disc golf just like this!

Be sure to where some sturdy shoes, and bring plenty of water and sunscreen during the day. The course may be a bit of a nightmare in certain aspects, but that is what gives it unique character. If your up for th challenge and/or something different you should have fun here.

Decent course but a lot of brush!

Pros: Very nice course for the first couple of holes as they are wide open and easy to see where the discs are. Mixture of some short and long holes to give you variety. They do change the arrangement of the baskets which also allows for some variety as well. Parking lot area is nice and central. There is also an RC Hobby shop right next to the parking lot that also sells discs inside incase you lose one and are in need of a replacement, while the selection ins't that great tho.
Cons: There is a lot of brush and bushes with tall weeds/grass on this course, making it very easy to lose a disc or two in a single round. Make sure you watch where you throw your discs or where they land as it can get lost in the brush and I have spent more time that I could possibly desire scouring for my discs when I lose site of it. Also on the left side of Hole 4/5/6/7 there is a river that rounds out the left side of the course with a somewhat steep hill with brush and trees leading down to it. If you throw your disc and it cuts left at the end (as basically every disc thrown RHBH does) you better watch where it lands as it can get thrown down the slope and into the water or lost in the brush. I spent well over an hour looking for a disc after not having watched where it landed. Basically on this section I recommend throwing further right so that when it cuts back it lands somewhere in the fairway area.
Other Thoughts: Nice course with some variety when the baskets are moved around, just too much brush at times and can be extremely muddy when it snows or rains as the shade from the grass/brush doesn't allot it to melt too fast.

Pros: Long range holes
Great distance driving practice
Good use of natural land
Lots of risk / reward with the river and thick weeds
Benches & trash cans scattered throughout the course
Cons: Weeds on weeds on weeds on weeds
Not much shade after the first 5 or so holes
Other Thoughts: It's a good course. I've lost a disc here and found many more.

You have to keep your eye on EVERY shot. There are bushes and weeds everywhere. The course gets mowed occasionally however when it's not freshly cut the natural grass & sage brush just devour discs.

This is not a beginner course, it will just frustrate you if you don't land directly on the fairway. After a rain fall a big hyzer shot on 4,5,6 puts you in a river with no hope of getting it back.

The baskets move locations occasionally & the variety is nice. Distance means nothing over accuracy here if you want to leave with the same number of discs you teed off with. The tricky part is that all the shots are open and LONG. So you need to throw long for par but accurate for your wallet.

Once you've got control of your drivers this is a pretty fun long range course. If you have an arrant shot, be prepared to wander though the sage.

Pros: - Good use of available topography
- Tees have been upgraded to turf pads
Cons: - Newbies may have difficulty figuring out the course layout
- Not a great beginner course with all the wild brush on every hole
- Not a technical course, very open
Other Thoughts: I've played this course many times as its proximity was close to me. There are many abysmal courses out there and this is NOT one of them, but it doesn't really stand out either. As the score indicates, it is a very average, typical Colorado course. It does attempt to utilize the site topography which is important, but as with many courses, trees are lacking and it quickly turns into a 'throw it far as you can' sort of course. Sometimes this can be fun, but not when it is every hole. Beginners will find difficulty learning here as well as the rabbitbrush and other scrub brush can hide disks on every hole.

 conviently located adequate course

Pros: - easy to get to from I-25
- decent astroturf pads
- trash cans on a number of holes, with new bags (suggesting they're regularly emptied)
- good hole markers
- good use of elevation, with shots going both up and down hills.
- a few interesting holes, including one (#7) with a blind tee
- some longer throws
Cons: - this course can feel a bit oppressive when it gets hot. It's half-ringed by trees (on the south and west sides) but gets virtually no shade. The insects can put up a good, loud, constant buzzing noise.
- a couple hole markers missing
- Lack of any vertical obstructions makes the course a little less interesting
- The low and pervasive brush can make it difficult to find discs. I'm figuring it's pretty hard to lose a disc permanently, but I imagine a spotter would be worthwhile on many holes.
Other Thoughts: - Most of the time it's pretty obvious where the next tee is, although there were a couple holes where it is not clear.
- The current course has the pin positions for #15 and #18 swapped, making it almost impossible to find the right basket if you're not already aware.
- Only a couple other groups were playing the couple times I went out.

Pros: - Near my house
Cons: - Long grass
- Rough terrain if you don't wear the right footwear
- Not for family
-
Other Thoughts: I've played this course a few times and I must say I liked the old layout versus the new layout I feel like some of the holes are right on top of each other and it was not that way before the redesign
I would recommend Jellystone over this course any day even thought you have to pay $5 to play jellystone but it is worth every penny

Pros: Good elevation change for a city course. Location is convenient and perfect for getting dropped off, while the wife goes to Park Meadows! Nice cages and friendly players.
Cons: Not many short, ace shot holes. Grasses/weeds/shrubs can be IMPOSSIBLE! Use spotters if you can or make sure to pay attention to landmarks near landings. Prepare yourself to lose a disc or two. Novice players slow down the pace of play and people need to get better about picking up after their dogs.
Other Thoughts: Do yourself a favor... If you can't control your discs, skip this course! There are infinite ways to lose your disc and spend all your time searching. Also, with the compact layout, its easy to fly a disc and hit other players. Families are a no-no. But, otherwise, its a fun play. If you're from the north part of town, invest the time to travel down to Jellystone, instead of this course.

 Watch out

Pros: Challenging layout
Concrete Tees
Not overwhelmingly busy for location (on weekdays)
Cons: Highway/Roads on both sides with loud traffic
Terrible bushes/terrain to loose a disc.

WATCH OUT on every throw, even the shortest of throws can be lost in a flash. Also dont let your Frisbee go left when you are shooting near the river you probably wont find it.
Other Thoughts: Decent course, really wouldn't be too bad if they mowed/maintained the brush. Besides the high probability of losing your Frisbee, fairly challenging course worth playing every once and a while

Pros: +Nice baskets
+Not a lot of things to get in the way of your long hyzers. This part of the park is fairly dedicated to disc golf.
+Probably isn't too crowded
+Minor elevation changes make it slightly more interesting
+It was pretty easy to navigate around this course. It is open and flows logically so it was usually easy to find the next tee and easy to see the next basket most of the time.
+Some trash cans. Not much trash on the course.
Cons: -Very open, doesn't force any lines. It is just long shot after long shot. One of the more repetitive course that I have ever played. If I play a repetitive course, I at least want the repetition of a somewhat fun shot.
-Not much variation in distance. Most of the holes are longish but not too long.
-Disc eating brush and bushes
-Prairie dog holes that can injure you
-Poor rutted natural tees
-Desert like. Barren, windy, dusty, dry. Not really a pleasant place to hang out.
Other Thoughts: -This park wasn't good for anything else so they threw a course on it. It wasn't good for disc golf either.
-I really wouldn't come here unless you are a course bagger or wanted to practice your long, open drives.
-Keep your eye on your discs. They can easily get lost in the brush.
