A Pleasant Surprise

Pros: This course had great tee signs and baskets with the dirt tee pads in good condition. Navigation was easy with a natural flow from basket to tee without too much extra walking. The park contained a nice playground for kids and is conducive to using a jogging stroller for your child or discs (aka cart friendly). They appear to water most of the grass in the park and have irrigation for the trees where they don't have sprinkler for the grass, giving you a pleasant and healthy ground covering on a majority of the course and promising sustained healthy trees. Hole distances varied greatly from hole to hole ranging from 250' to 500' uphill giving you some variety in distance where it lacked in shot type (hyzer vs. anhyzer) variate. Some holes actually forced a flex (or "S") shot which I don't typically throw and can't think of many holes on other courses that force that shot.
Cons: Despite the variety in hole length most (though not all) holes were reachable with a hyzer, some where you had a large gap to hit but many that you simply had to go around the trees with little repercussion for taking it too wide. No OB was marked on the tee signs and several of the fairways had pylons with a wire threw them (to keep vehicles off the grass) that I played as an OB line to tighten up the course. Tee signs also didn't hint at the huge drop-off on holes 7&8, you do not want to be off to the right on those holes.
Other Thoughts: I played this course to break up the drive between Amarillo and Pagosa Springs, CO. This rout was 1 hour longer but allowed me to stop at 3 courses along the way breaking the drive into roughly 3 hour sections. This was key for traveling with our toddler son and small dog who were able to walk most of this course with little aid. We had no info on this course (I uploaded pics, distances and this first review) so we were extremely pleased to find it to be such a nice and fun course.
I've rated it a 3.0 "Good" course but you probably be cussing me if you go out of your way to play this course. It is a typical park course with no unique holes or features to make it worth seeking out.
