Surprisingly Cool Course

Pros: Well maintained, park grass, technical holes, challenging back 9- can play 18 in 1.5hrs
Cons: the back 9 are all alternate tees to the same baskets, if you throw a disc in the stream or the weeds it is probably gone- the stream is sometimes low enough to get them back out
Other Thoughts: Overall this is a really great little neighborhood course. It's fun to play because of the nice grass. There aren't any long holes but it is still challenging enough not to loose discs

Pros: Teepads 3
Baskets 4
Tee signs 3
Flow 4
Difficulty 3.5 (pending ob rules)
Alt tees 4
I really like this course good chance to refine midrange and putter but don't get me wrong i used drivers on some alt tee. The alt tees really changed the 9 holes i was super glad i played them
Cons: The course is short and packed in. Possible trouble with other park goers. Several tees are sidewalks and basket are right near sidewalks.
Other Thoughts: The course was green and lush. Very cute little park. I say go play it.

Dual tees make this course

Pros: Dual tees make the course interesting and the "A" tees decently challenging. It is designed wisely, taking advantage of the terrain, water and trees. Easy to follow, quick rounds make for multiple tries. Nice tee boxes and signs. #7 throw across the water is awesome.
Cons: No "A" tee for #5, construction, fairly short.
Other Thoughts: Great redesign!

Fun little hidden course

Pros: Concrete tees throughout with nice baskets. Signage on the regular tees can help the first timer make their way around and scout out the alternates along the way. Speaking of alternates tees, these are a nice addition and make the course much more fun for an experienced player. Lots of mature shade trees and shelter. A nice variety of shots on each set of tees. Sweet lake teeshot on #7(?) alternate. The trees, lake, marsh, hillsides, and creek will keep you on your toes. Seems like there are more than one route on most holes which more small courses lack. Short course but worth a trip out.
Cons: Alternate tees do not have distances marked, but they are not extremely long to make it a big deal. A couple drainage crossings can be tricky and may be slick so please be careful. Not too many cons really.
Other Thoughts: There is a message board with area info in it. Great course that the area needs and deserves. Keep up the good work guys!

Pretty Little Nine Holer W/Alternate Teepads!

Pros: This is one pretty little course. It's set in the middle of a business park and the course is extremely well maintained. It's green with, lush grass, shade trees, lots of hills and some water hazards. Today our water hazard was the sprinklers. The course weaves it way through the buildings sometimes using sidewalks as the tee boxes. There are a alternate set of boxes allowing you to play this as a full 18. This plays as a fairly easy recreational level course thus making it a perfect venue for bringing that newbie/wife/youngster. There are a few ACE runs. # 7 is the longest hole on the course with water on the right side but it can easily be avoided by playing it more safely and staying left. You'll need to throw both hysers and anhysers here. The shade and the sprinklers both were welcome on this 95 degree July day.
Cons: Advanced/Pro players won't find a challenge here. But I think they'd enjoy a round here anyway. I understand the canal can become a torrent after rain. Today, it was a trickle.
Other Thoughts: Perfect course for me, 60 year old recreational player. Your tastes may differ. Proceed at your own pace.

Pros: Very well maintained. The grass is always well kept and maintenance is done daily. The space available is not extensive but the holes are well thought out and challenging for the distance. The course has nine additional tee pads that add very different looks at each basket.
Cons: Short holes. When water is in e creek there is little chance to retrieve it due to the fast moving water. All of the water and marshy areas boast an extremely distasteful smell so try to avoid them as much as possible.

 Disc down fun

Pros: - Very well designed, maintained and clean course
- Friendly local regulars
- Great baskets
- Good signage
- Concrete tee's for every hole - even the alternates.
- Great for beginners to mid level players, fun for all levels of play
- Easy access, plenty of close parking and brick and mortar bathrooms
- Lots of near by shopping and food
- Alternate tee's on #3, #6 - 9 are great holes for all skill levels imo
- practice basket(s) ---** see below comments
- large soccer field allows for driving practice
- water fountain
- if you keep your disc dry, you don't need to be "geared up" to play. Really, 4-5 discs are all you need. I usually don't bring my bag, and you can leave your "get dirty clothes" at home.
- perfect for a quick game (can play all 18 in hour 15-30) or a tune up before Johnny Roberts/Birds Nest
Cons: - can be busy during peak hours, mainly due to smallish course.
- canal can be a mixed bag. Some days, dry. Others, fiercely flowing run off can hijack your disc (looks like it could be fun to tube on during days like that!). Then, there's the in between days where it's just plain stagnant mucky water.
- Tall weeds and marsh on 6. If your disc is submerged, it's pretty much gone for good.
- Lake on 7, if your disc goes in good luck getting it back.
- only 9 holes
- most holes are on the short side, nothing terribly technical here
- park is mostly open. If you're looking for a quiet peaceful day away from everything, this isn't it.
- needs more garbage cans
- like all courses near the foothills, course is subjected to some heavy winds at times
Other Thoughts: I'm here at least 3 times a week and it still provides a challenge, esp from the alt tee's.

I think holes 1/a and 2/a could have their tee's repositioned to elongate and add difficulty

The best improvement would come on hole 6, drain that marsh or some how facilitate easier disc retrieval. Maybe even have someone clean it once a month and return the discs for a $5 fee (those with names)? I have seen this at other courses.

***Others have said the practice basket is too close to #2's basket. Thats true if the course is busy, but when it's not, it allows you to use #2 as another practice basket, allowing you to shoot at one from the other (about 25-30 ft apart). This gives you more practice throws and less time spending setting up for them :) I consider this a plus.

This is essentially my home course, as I live 5 minutes away. As such, please clean up after yourself!!! The park is usually quite clean and I like it that way.

Pros: East Interlocken DGC is nestled comfortably within a high-end business park in the foothills of Broomfield, Colorado. Private jets, helicopters and biplanes can be seen and heard passing overhead on outings to and from a small nearby hilltop airport. On weekends, the streets of the business park are scarcely traveled, providing a tranquil atmosphere. The course itself is designed with a certain level of competitive thought, but the main tee-off positions have no intention of stumping the seasoned disc golfer. Less advanced players will find the course an excellent practice ground for learning new shots, since the length and technical skill of each hole varies greatly. Major props to the designer for squeezing in just about every type of hole here: tight & tactical, between-the-trees, long bombs out in the open, a couple water hazards, elevation changes, and both right- and left-hand doglegs. Trees, light poles, a bog, a drainage ditch and a pond serve as excellent obstacles to stir up the game on seven of the fairways, while two of the holes are wide open shots. Alternate, but less obvious tees (see map) offer an entirely different approach to the pins, giving players with a little extra time a valid reason to play a second round to make a full 18. Trash cans, concrete tee pads, quality baskets and legible tee signs all play their part in making this a well-rounded course that earns its rank a few notches above many of its 9-hole counterparts.
Cons: There are a handful of places to lose precious plastic along this relatively short course. These include a cement waterway that often carries a hefty current capable of quickly eloping with your prized putter, a thin marshy stretch of head-high weeds that hide a carpet of thick black mud, and a stagnant pool of opaque disc-sucking mud-water. There are also a couple choice opportunities to toss onto the road, so mind the passing Mercedes, please. The droning highway noise of Route 36 is not the most audio pleasant backdrop to a well-groomed course, but it is tollerable.
Other Thoughts: When visiting East Interlocken Park, think upper-middle class in terms of short, free 9-holer courses. Visit these sub-Hollywood hills on a weekend morning to avoid the hustle and bustle of the Monday through Friday business park shuffle.

 Great 9 hole

5+    6/20/2011   7/8/2011

Pros: Nice 9 hole course in a well maintained park. Tee pads & signs for every hole. There are alt. tee pads for most of the holes. It uses the parks features well and the overall layout provides for a nice flow and out of the way of other park users.

Favorite Hole: #4
Cons: The course follows a path that goes through the park and when I played the course last, there were some cyclist riding through and you couldn't see them til it was almost too late. The other con is that there is only 1 hole over 300'. If you use the "pro" tee pads it does add a little length and difficultly to the course.
Other Thoughts: Overall, very nice park course. Well worth a 30 minute drive for me. MHDGC tags on Tuesday nights @ 5:30pm. Good course for 9 hole or 18 with the alt. tee pads.
