Best In Denver Metro?
Pros: This course sits on a really nice piece of land owned by Colroado Heights University. There are some incredible views and some well maintained land. There is an incredible variety of shots that will make you wish you could throw every shot there is. There are multimple tee pads that really make the 18 holes feel like two different courses. Great new baskets and incredible tee signs with good information. Cement tee pads are said to be on the way even though they are not there now. Because it is a private course you can almost garuntee that the course traffic is not bad at all. Most time there is a max of four groups or so on the course. There are some real fun unique holes. I personally enjoyed hole 14 (the long hole) a lot and did not find it overly long. No two holes really feel the same. Multiple pin locations will also drastically change the course as some locations are much easier than others. This course can be a Championship course. Pin locations are changing on a weekly basis at the present time (to the tune of 6 baskets changing each week). There is a lot of love for this course and there are a lot of people that are going to keep this course the best that it can be.
Cons: There is one long walk to hole 12 and then a semi long walk to hole 13 making the navigation at this point a bit difficult. Some to the different tee pads on every hole are not near each other or fall in a logical place. It is a private course with campus security that actually checks to make sure you have your pass. There is no real way to just pay to play this course. There are a couple of places where you are playing over roads and walking paths so you will need to be careful not to throw at cars and pedestrians. Some spots will get muddy with snow and or rain.
Other Thoughts: This course is still a work in progress but it is clearly one of the best courses in the Denver area if not the best. Rumor has it that tags matches will happen Thursday evenings and cost $5 for non pass holders and might be the only weekly chance for non members to play. Doug B. has created an excellent course and one that will be a gem in the Denver area for a long time to come. I have no fear that this course will maintain and be improved over time. It isn't perfect but it is a great course.

Pros: Multiple pads and a minimum of two pin positions for each hole. I love playing either pad or mix and matching, challenging shots are abundant. CHU has risk versus reward on nearly every toss of the plastic. Most all out of bounds make sense for safety and challenge purposes. The baskets are moved often enough to keep me coming back over and over.
Cons: Students are clueless, and the course needs trash cans.
Other Thoughts: Plans for 2013 include 13 new positions added to existing holes, and a new pad for 18. Three new holes are being added to expand the course to 21 holes, each of the three new holes with have two pads and two pin placements. This little gem of Denver DG is being progressive and enhancing what is already the best course in town.

Pros: Great use of land and good layout. Multiple pin and tee pads ensure that variety is abundant. The signage is great shows layout and distances from both pins. Having this as a pay to play will help with volume. Adding another tournament caliber course in the Denver metro area hopefully will allow more events to come here.
Cons: Tee pads not in yet. Even with a map it is a little hard to navigate the course right now so if you play try and go with someone who is familiar with it. Throwing across roadways on some holes and toward a major street can provide some difficulties with errant shots. Some course maintenance still needed in terms of grooming trees.
Other Thoughts: The security will check to see if you have a CHU tag so make sure to pay for your pass. This is well worth the $50, I love this course. I think this is more a par 56-58 than 54 with holes 5 and 14 being in the 800 and almost 1000 ft range (from long position). I cannot wait until the tee pads are actually put in, throwing off of snow and uneven ground slightly put a damper on my tee shots. This course has it all! Every shot in your bag and then some. P.S. watch out for Wile E Coyote as he picked up my Valkyrie and dragged it to the foot of his den. They are not aggressive but they are a bit of a nuisance... can I get a ruling on this???

Pros: lots of variety of shots. 2-3 island holes and 3 very long holes. the only people playing here will be well versed in discgolf considering the 50 dollars to play. the view off of hole 14 is spectacular.
Cons: no tee pads or tee signs yet. several chances to OB over fences and such. a considerable amount of concrete to rough up your discs on. it is fairly easy to OB into someones backyard on 5.
Other Thoughts: this will be the best "accessible" discgolf course in denver when it is finished. the variety of shots and the flow of the holes will secure it as the best place to play. the mansion is the only course that compares in the denver metro area.
if you score par here, you are playing pretty damn well.
