Great Fun Stop of I-25
Pros: -Baskets are new, are in great shape and catch well
-The flow of the course makes it pretty easy to navigate and finding the next hole isn't too difficult
-There is a sign with a map of the layout on both the west and east sides of I-25, which makes navigation pretty easy.
-The course boasts a good variety of distance, with some shorter holes and some longer holes.
-Multiple pin-positions on some of the holes.
-The front nine plays along a creek, and has many baskets placed near the creek, which adds some good risk/reward and challenge to the course.
-The front nine has a lot of baskets guarded by clusters of trees
-While the back nine are a little more open than the front nine, they bring three ponds into play on many of the holes, that adds some variety to the course.
-There are a lot of baskets located on downhills or on the side of hills, which makes putting a little more fun and challenging.
-Due to the creek and ponds, this course has a good amount of water hazards.
-Since the course is out on the plains, the wind will definitely come into play on many of the holes.
-The area this course was in looked to be mainly dedicated to disc golf and you won't have to wait for other park users.
-The course was very uncrowded
-There is a practice tee-pad (labeled Hole 0) and practice basket at the start of the course.
Cons: -The tee-signs only give the hole number and par and need improvement.
-The tee-boxes are currently dirt, and a few of the tee-boxes are getting badly rutted. The tee-pads are also too short.
-There is a long walk between several of the holes (this is a bit of a pro, because this helps avoid boring filler holes).
-Parts of the creek and some spots on the back nine, will likely be pretty overgrown during some of the summer months.
-The biggest con is the drive between the two sides of the course since it is cut in half by 1-25. The drive between the two sides of the course is about 5 minutes and is a little annoying. It will be really nice when the city adds the path under I-25.
Other Thoughts: This a good course with the potential to be a great course. It is still pretty new and definitely still a little rough around the edges. With better tee-pads and improved tee-pads, this course would definitely get a 3.5 rating from me. It's not too far off I-25 and is definitely worth a stop if you are passing through.

A Great Addition
Pros: The course has great pin placement on several holes and what terrain is there is used well. The manicured areas were very nice and the water features really make it feel very schwanky:) There was a path that ran most of the way and the grass was cut pretty much everywhere. There are several benches and a portapottie at the parking lots for the front and back nine. We took a picture of master course plan located at the parking lots and easily found our way around. The front 9 is short with many great chances at an ace, opening up around the walk across the street. The tee boxes are dirt and of good size. The back nine will challenge most players with the water traps and the wind Wellington is known for. I would say it is a great course to play, laying somewhere between Edora and CLP.
Cons: Driving between the front 9 and back 9 would be the biggest draw back, which shouldn't stop anyone from playing there. Also there are no trash cans on the front 9. Otherwise this course is great for just about anyone to play. I would like to see multiple pin placements, as there are some great opportunities for this on several holes.
Other Thoughts: Great new addition to the Northern Colorado disc golf scene. It should help lighten the load at some of the other courses and I recommend playing it. The back 9 with water features was a very cool highlight and makes for an awesome backdrop for pictures and ambiance. It want very windy while I was there and no one else was there, I don't expect the crowds to stay away too long, it is well worth the time.
