Pros: -Great playground, shelter, benches, bathrooms, garbages, parking etc. And by great I mean brand new and awesome. A lot of money went into this course.
-Great signage, never any wondering which basket to throw at even though the park is small and you can see all the baskets all the time.
-Good use of elevation, this is needed on this course.
-Nice quality baskets
-Cement tees, plenty big enough for the distance you have to throw here.
-Great flow, never any concern about where to go next.
-Course probably isn't overly busy ever.
-No chance to lose a disc
-Mandos provide some challenge to an otherwise pretty easy course.
-Ace runs galore on a non windy day
Cons: -Rocks can eat up your discs.
-Wyoming is very windy. It was 45+ the day I played and my beefy champ gator became reasonably understable. Putting was a nightmare.
-Course is fairly short and not a lot of variation in distance.
-Deer or antelope poo all over, not as bad as the park in Rawlins
-The curse of this course is the available land. It is small, rocky, and there literally isn't a tree on the course.
Other Thoughts: This course was hard to define on the number scale. It is open, fairly easy, rocky, yet pretty fun and obviously very well cared for at the same time. A lot of time, money, and care went into this course. It was fun and very unique. I had fun even though it was so windy that I had to throw my champ gator on every hole and keep it very low. I would recommend this course. It is the only course for an hour plus in any direction and it is unique. You will enjoy all the little touches they put in and the quality of the design. Great job to whoever put this course in and put the work into it.

Pros: A sloping course in a natural Wyoming setting. The out of bounds markers and pylons (made to "dogleg" around and between) provide a little challenge to this otherwise beginner level course. Good signs, new equipment.
Cons: Very short, small area. Not much distance. The tees are dirt, and can be a little slippery, but again, you really don't need much distance on most holes.
Other Thoughts: Not terribly threatening, and kind of unique. The pylons were a new challenge for me, and one I think more of these lightly wooded/open courses should try. Worth the stop if you're passing through the area.
