Pros: The course is set in a beautiful area and is quite wild, which adds to it's character. I loved being right up next to the river and appreciated that it wasn't a constant worry for the course.

The holes are long and most are open shots. I like this because I've got a decent arm and love to put a lot on it. It wasn't horribly technical but made up for it in distances, requiring you to place your mid shots well or you'd face a long putt.

The signature hole has to be hole 4, throwing off the cliff around the bend. It's also the only hole where the water hazard comes into play if you shank your drive.

Great signage and a course map right at the parking lot made navigating pretty easy.

The tee pads were all good and I always like a course with multiple pin placements.

Benches were located in good spots to rest, which is needed since it is a long course.

For it being a pack in/out (garbage) course, it was surprisingly clean. I can't recall seeing any garbage on it at all which is extremely impressive.
Cons: The biggest cons to me were the first and last two holes on the course. They are wide open long shots up on top. It starts out and ends the round with the least desirable holes. That's not a major con though, it is still a very good course. I also didn't really care for the hike back up to finish off the last two holes, it felt a little disjointed. It was probably unavoidable and is a little nitpicky of me, I know.

Some may consider the distances a con, especially if you face a stiff head wind like we did. It made parring a hole quite challenging or next to impossible at times.
Other Thoughts: This proved to be an interesting course with some nice scenery, though I'm not sure the description of championship quality is accurate. Don't get me wrong, it was very good and certainly deserves a solid 3.5 rating, but I just don't know if it's championship material. That being said it was worth the visit. Fruita is a nice town and with 3 courses (including the 10 holes at a Jr High, how cool is that?) you can tell that they love disc golf!

Cons: The river isn't used in the course at all.
Could use some elevation change.
Other Thoughts: Quality challenging course. Could skip the first 2 shots and the last 2 shots though

Pros: Nice course along the Colorado river. Multiple hole locations and good signage.
Cons: First off...bring bug spray!! Much of the terrain is similar looking so it is wise to have a spotter.(lost 4 discs) Not alot of shade and bring plenty of water.
