Pros: - Rubber Tee Pads
- Nice length and variety of shots
- Easy to follow
- Good use of trees and water
- Tee signs give distance and associated hazards (even tell you what other tee boxes or pins you might accidentally hit)
- Multiple Pin locations
Cons: - Baskets are not of highest quality and it need of minor repair
- rubber tee pads get slick in the rain
- A marker on the tee-signs indicating which position the basket is in would be nice
Other Thoughts: This is a better than average, moderately wooded course that is literally right down the road from my house. After living in New Mexico, where the closest course was 75 miles away in Albuquerque, this is awesome!

As far as I can tell, most of the pins have multiple locations, though in the past 2 months, I've only seen 3 move. The course is well thought out and offers a variety of different tee shots and challenges. Every single hole has some type of obstacle to contend with and make you think about the shot. Variety of distances are friendly to both intermediate and advanced players.

Rubber pads get really slick in the rain and several of the baskets are missing a strand or two of chains. The baskets seem to be of cheaper quality metal (compared to a Disccatcher or the likes), but the Broncos painting scheme is a nice touch and makes them easy to see from a distance.

Pros: Great course for beginners on the first few holes. However, more technical holes going down the stretch. Great use of space by designer. Taking breaks to watch how others play is fun with plenty of places to sit in the woods. Overall, this is a fun little 12 hole course.
Cons: Lots of dirt fairways making disc slick and dirty. (bring a towel). Close to river so bring bug spray. play can be slow at times.
Other Thoughts: I started off really well but fell apart on hole #9 in the trees. Course should be extended into the park next to the soccer field. You can easily place 6 more baskets there. Similar to course in LaPorte, which also is a great course.

Pros: -This part of the park is pretty much disc golf only so you shouldn't have to worry about non dgers crossing your path
-Multiple pin placements per hole
-Good mix of shots (Some wide open, some tunnel shots, some straight shots, some doglegs. Overall, this course will force you to use a variety of shots
-The blue and orange baskets are very visible and easy to see
-Nice course signs (Very informative- they tell you hole legnth, map with pin positions, and any other info such as mandos or particular out of bounds on the current hole)
-Trashcans throughout the course
Cons: -Teepads are natural and have already begun to get ruts in them
-A few of the fairways and tees and baskets are really close to each other and could lead to some safety issue
-If it is your first time playing bring a map or you will run into some navigational issues (Many holes have several baskets you could shoot at, etc.)
Other Thoughts: This course is a blast to play. It is a lot different than other course in the area. The best holes are the ones that have the tunnel shots. If you are anywhere in the area make sure you stop by this one as it is a a very enjoyable course. With a little more work (such as teepads that aren't natural) this course will be awesome)

Pros: A nice mixture of holes. Most of the shots involve some sort of obstacle that requires more than just throwing as straight as possible. This course has a very nice variety of trees considering it's out on the plains of Colorado. A few doglegs to test your skills and a good use of trees on most of the holes. The holes that are short require tight accuracy down narrow fairways through the trees. It's sort of out in the country so the atmosphere is relaxing.
Cons: No real elevation changes, and a couple of the holes were about 6 inches under water when I played in early June. I don't know if this was because of recent storms or a high water table but I decided to skip them instead of have soggy shoes.
Other Thoughts: A really nice balanced mix of holes. A couple are open and straight, a few are short and technical and the rest are a mix of challenges. Well designed and fun to play. You'll want to print up a map if it's your first visit because the only onsite map was at hole one. No real parking lot but it's located down a lazy country lane so it seems to balance out. If this course had concrete tee pads it would be one of the best on the Northern Colorado front range.

Pros: This course uses the limited space that it is on very well. You will need to be creative to do well on this course at times and will ask you to throw many different types of shots. Good variation in distances throughout the round. Shorter holes seem to be amazingly challenging with the longer holes being more open. There are many people who are currently working hard to make this course what it is and it would seem that these people are going to be around for a while, which should only make this course that much more amazing. Obviously there is not much traffic yet and there should not be much traffic in this area besides disc golfers.
Cons: Well, since I played this course with a bunch of temp baskets out during a fundraiser for the course, I can't really say much about there not being baskets yet but that is the main con about this course right now. The terrain is extremely flat for Colorado. There are no current ameneties beyond what is in the park, but the park does have really nice ameneties. Tee pads and the ground in general are extremely muddy, especially with rain or snow. No signs up yet. There was one spot where the flow of holes seemed to be a bit off but there was a good deal of talk about switching the order of a couple of holes when baskets and signs are put in. There are only 12 holes.
Other Thoughts: For being a course that is still in the process of being installed this course is amazing. The designers of the course obviously knew what they were doing and found what is probably the best piece of land that they could find in Windsor for a course and have done a magnificent job of making the land work for them. Becasue I played this course in a fund raiser for this course I am sure that my experience of this course was better than just going out to play a round here right now before course instalation really begins. I doubt that even with the best of everything that my rating for this course will change. While there are many cons in basic areas right now the design of the course is really impressive and deserves the credit of the rating that I have given it. Plus the other big upside for this course is the number of locals who have already put so much into this course and the local clubs that are helping these individuals make this something great. There are definately a few signature holes on this course, mostly those that have some very narrow shots. I also really enjoyed the creativity that one could have on this course. The problem still being that it takes one round for the better players to figure out this course.

Pros: Lots of different shot selections, making full use of the natural surroundings. Hole six is treacherous with a shot across an open area into a tight opening in the woods. Hole 2 is the longest, wide open, and has OB all the way down on the right side. A disc golf only park for the most part, you will find some people walking dogs. Lots of trees and you must navigate them correctly to score well. Several trash cans on site for your convenience.
Cons: No facilities except for the main park nearby(which are quite nice and within walking distance). Very muddy after snow melts. Somewhat short and mildly congested. Russian Olive trees can be a real pain.
Other Thoughts: Great new course for the Northern Front Range. Bring an updated map.
