Pros: Red Rocks Community College is still on a very nice piece of property right up against the foothills off of 6th Ave right near I-70. The best changes from the old layout to the new layout include what feel likes a greater variation of distances. There are not many filler holes on this course as even some of the short ones have some very unique attributes to them. The course uses the land features quite well and provides for a very fun experience. Some of the new long holes are great because they are not just long for the sake of being long but still have some nice features to them. The holes now make better use of the elevation in the area as well. Nice baskets throughout the course. New layout brings more OB features into play as well to add some more challenge. The new layout does end closer to the parking lot than the old layout did. There are now 12 holes on this course rather than just 9. There is a really nice parking lot close to the course.
Cons: Some of the tee pads still need some work after the redesign. I found the gully hole's tee pad to be particularly bad. The new layout is not as easy to follow as it used to be in the old layout. Tee signs would make things a lot better. They took out old hole 9 which was by far my favorite. This course still gets a lot of beginner players that do not really know ettiquite. That is part of the reason that old hole 9 had to go away.
Other Thoughts: There are really some great new holes on the course. The course is really a challenging fun 12 hole course but it still could use a lot of things like consistent concrete tee pads. The entire feel of the course has an unfinished feel to it but it is still a really nice course that provides a lot of fun. Just remember that unless the school is in session you are not likely to be able to get in the building to use any of the facilities. There are also some restrictions because it is a college campus so be aware of that.

Pros: This course has become much better since the last layout, still needs work, but better. Technical shots with obstacles as well as elevation changes. Distances vary from 165' (six's true distance) and roughly all of 500+(hole seven). Definetely fun to pull out some different shots you might want to try out in some cases. Worthy enough course to hold tag matches.
Cons: After it was changed from the nine hole layout, within a week, hole 9 was moved and an addition was made for 10 being the old hole 7. I don't think the people who are putting this together really have a great idea of how to make it flow better. Additionally there is room for 18 which I think they are working towards. Word of caution... Cambodia freaking sucks (you will know when you get there) look for it on holes 7, 9 and 10 when you throw the inevitable errant shot. Parking during the week sucks as this is a community college.
Other Thoughts: Its been great to see this course improved on. With a little more work and some commitment from the powers that be, this course could definetely jump to a 3.5 maybe a four if they do it right. I look forward to seeing where they can go with it.
