 Nice Beginner Course

Pros: -About 4 of the holes have nice double chained baskets
-Concrete tee-pads (they are not very long but on this course they don't need to be)
-Good use of the available land and trees to make some nice holes
-Some fun holes that use the trees available for some interesting and well thought out pin placements
-The course plays through a nicely kept and very pleasant park area. You won't lose discs here.
-All baskets are well-numbered and easy to see from the tee-pads and thanks to the numbered baskets it is very easy to know which basket you are throwing too.
A great place to introduce new players to the game. Other than hole 5 all of the holes are under 200 feet but unlike some easier courses, none of the holes are wide open and the trees provide some fun holes that keep new players interested in the game.
-A few trashcans at some of the tee-pads
Cons: -About five of the baskets are old single chains that have been repaired several times and will probably need to be replaced sometime soon. There will be spit-outs on some of these older baskets.
-Other than hole 5 (which is 312 feet) none of the holes are very long.
-A few fairways cross slightly and if the course is crowded there could be a few conflicts on a couple holes.
-More experienced players won't be challenged here and will probably be able to get twos on most of the holes with a putter or mid-range.
-No benches to rest on
-Road nearby on some holes that discs could go into if there is a bad shot.
-No tee-signs (just posts with the hole number on them).
Other Thoughts: This is the best course in Denver to introduce a new player to the game. It provides some interesting holes that will challenge new players a little bit but not too much. This course won't challenge more experienced players but it is good for a quick putter or mid-range round.

 Fun little course

Pros: Great vibe on the course and in the neighborhood. This would be a perfect place to introduce someone to the sport, play a round with a significant other that doesn't play, or even go mano v. mano with a buddy for bragging rights. Ace runs on pretty much every hole. There was a good amount of thought put in to basket placement and the mature trees require some actual shot making. Grass feels good on bare feet on a hot day. A pleasant place to play. Putters and mids only.
Cons: no signage, so it's a small hassle to find the next tee. Single chain baskets. The course probably can't support more than 3-4 groups on it at a time because it is so compact, so keep your head up for errant throws.
Other Thoughts: I was pleasantly surprised at how quaint and well thought out this course is. It's not for someone looking to play a serious round, but this is the kind of course that will help grow the sport, as it is surrounded by a neighborhood full of kids. it gets a 2.5 based on the fact that it is "typical" on a small scale. The lack of distance isn't a knock because the course doesn't try to be anything but fun.

 Cute and Fun

Pros: The course is very pretty. Its all nice green grass and trees. It is surrounded by a ball golf course so its all landscaped really nice. It's a great course for practicing your very short game. I only bring a mid and a putter.
Cons: The first time playing it was tough to find which basket to throw to. It gets crowded with just a few groups playing because the close proximity of all the holes. A decent number of shots are along roads or parking lots.
Other Thoughts: Overall this is one of my favorite course to just pop onto and get the need to play out of my system without spending all day/my energy on a big course. I usually go and play a few rounds at a time, sometimes I'll do a speed round, but there isn't much running to be had.

 7/23 Scale Disc Golf Course!

Pros: Ken Caryl DGC is like a slightly smaller version of a real disc golf course. It would be perfect for my wife. She's 5'4", 110 lbs. and can consistently throw her driver about 47 feet. It would be also be perfect for Jackson. He's a 2nd grader I played with today at Cottonwood Creek. This course would fit him like a glove. However, if you can drive more than 47 feet or if you're more skilled than the average second grader, than this course might be a little below your skill level.
But it's so cute! It sits on extra small parcel of land with lovely mature trees. Every hole but # 5 is an ACE waiting to happen. # 9 is a wonderful touch anhyser ACE run where you have to carefully thread through disc through the trees.
They keep this course pretty well maintained. Today there were no fewer than five (5) different types of mowers and a weed eater working on the course. I thought for sure one of my discs was going to get mowed over and spit back to me in a million pieces.
Cons: Depending on your arm strength, you may not need to bring a driver, or a mid-range. You may not wish to count 100 footers as legimate ACES. You may not feel challenged here. But my wife and Jackson certainly would.
It looks as though a beaver has been chewing on a couple of the cute little tee signs. # 8 is currently illegible.
Other Thoughts: I love these little courses. I'm not exactly sure why anyone would build one this miniscule but there were other people playing it this morning. A single older man and a young father with his beginner type son.

Everyone loves ACES. This course has some sweet little (very short) ACE runs. If you want to rack up a few, come out to Ken Caryl DGC where you can play four rounds in a hour.

 Fun, Quick

Pros: Clean, 2-3 challenging holes, confidence-builder
Cons: Crowded, stoners, most of the holes are short, lots of cross-traffic with other players, does not follow map
Other Thoughts: A great place to work on fundamentals but not a very challenging course. Most holes are short so leave the Nukes at home. It's definitely worth a visit.

Pros: The park is well maintained and has close ample parking.
Cons: Very congested, you are throwing on and around people the entire course. Few trees and minimal shot variation. The course is also very short.
Other Thoughts: You should not need much more than a putter on this course so pack lite.

 Play it safari style but it's still a zoo

Pros: 9 holes with concrete tee pads
Tolerable baskets
Plenty of trees to add to the challenge.
Cons: Super short holes
Tee numbers on wood poles are worn to the bone and sometimes impossible to read
Course map seems to freestyle or safari the original course design thus causing confusion and some "swimming upstream" against other golfers flow.
Other Thoughts: The nine holes here are on a plot of land about the size of a football field thus some of them feel like they are about 80-100 ft. There are a lot of trees on this plot of land that add to the challenge and make it fun. If you make up your own layout for the course you can turn it into something challenging but to do this you must have the entire course to yourself which seems like it would be rare. It seemed to me that nobody plays this course as it was originally laid out, but nobody follows the course map on this site either, so ultimately you get a disc golf demolition derby with different groups shooting criss cross all over the place. This place has a lot of potential for a pitch and putt experience but it needs a lot of fixing up and clarification before that's going to happen.
