Pros: -Beautiful views and property
-Mini DG is an interesting challenge and good cool-down from your long 39 hole round of PF.
-Some interesting shots with varied elevation, hard putts, potential roll-aways.
-Paulie is a great ambassador for the sport and a great host.
-You can borrow mini discs from Paulie for use on the course
-Navigation is easy with next tee signs and tee signs. Baskets are numbered. Next basket is usually pretty easy to find near the last tee.
-Nice gold DGA mini baskets.
Cons: -It is a mini disc golf course
-Mini disc golf courses just aren't nearly as fun as real disc golf courses

*There really isn't anything wrong with this course. It is just really hard for me to justify giving this 9 hole mini course any rating higher than this when I give decent 9 hole real disc golf courses similar rankings. If this was a review site for mini courses then this one would be pretty good.
Other Thoughts: -I chose to rate this course in comparison to other disc golf courses and not against mini courses. This site does not make a distinction between the two and I don't even know if any other mini courses are listed on here. It seems silly to me that a 9 hole mini course could be rated near the best of the best real courses with many more holes.
-This course might be a little more fun if I had more experience with minis. They were very flippy and hard to do much of anything with for me.
-Don't come here for the mini course (duh!) but if you play Phantom Falls (which you should) then you might as well play this course as well for a change of pace and a new experience.

 Professional 9 Hole Mini DG Course

Pros: For a mini DG course I don't know how it could get any better? This mini DG course has gold plated perminent DGA mini DG baskets, flawless signage, perfect tee-boxes, benches at every hole, trash cans, bottle openers, piped in music from the house, and loaner mini discs for all guests. The design is very challenging and creative using hanging baskets, stumps,
V-trees, etc. The 9 hole course flows like a dream, and wraps around on itself perfectly, so if you wanted to play 18 holes you could do so very fluidly. This course is an extremely fun warm down from the very strenuous Phantom Falls DGC.
Cons: For a mini DG course none.
Other Thoughts: Keep in mind, the 5 stars is for mini DG course comparison only. Also for transparentcy, I am the designer and the owner. I would love for you to come and visit us sometime. For more information go to

Pros: great place!! Nothing i can really say bad about it.
Cons: Fun!!! 9 holes and very easy to follow.
Other Thoughts: Not much to say Paulie did a great job. The only way you can see what i'm talking about is to see it yourself. Great job Paul we had a lot of fun at the course.

Pros: -Great intuitive layout that actually makes you shape some good lines
-Super fun cool down after 38 crazy holes at the Phantom
-Loaner minis if you dont have your own
-Cool mini baskets, some of which are hanging
Cons: Really no cons. Its a mini course. Its Phantom Falls. What more needs to be said?
Other Thoughts: An absolute must play if you are at the Phantom. You will be exhausted after your round, but its so worth it. Lots of fun, and actually pretty challenging.

Pros: Just another awesome thing to do after you get done playing the monster course! It's different and I've never had the chance to play a mini course anywhere else in Colorado. Hanging baskets, unique placements and an added degree of difficulty but three chances on each shot make it both fun and technically demanding.
Cons: Usually you play it at the end of your time at Phantom Falls, which sucks because it means you are leaving soon.
Other Thoughts: Creative placement of baskets and unique use of natural features make the mini course almost as cool as its big brother. Paulie has put a lot of time an energy into making such a wonderful playground for us all to experience and is continually looking to make it more fun.
