Pros: The course plays through a mostly disc golf exclusive area in a small community park. The first few holes are open, the rest have scattered trees and brush in play. A couple of the holes have nice protected pin placements where you have to place your shot well to have an unobstructed putt. A few shots have enough trees in play to force specific lines off the tee. There is a mix of hole lengths, with some ace run chances and a long hole where you can open up and throw a drive. The course flows well, it's easy to find the next tee with numbered posts that have hole distances marked.
Cons: The first few holes have no obstacles at all, offering wide open shots that don't have any real challenge. The long shot is fun for experienced players, but doesn't really fit with the overall skill level of the course and could be a bit frustrating for beginners. There are a few shots that are blind off the tee, with no tee signs it takes some scouting to figure out which basket you're shooting to. The tees are pretty bad, rutted out dirt patches with wood chips and oddly placed toe boards aren't the ideal surface to throw from.
Other Thoughts: Beginners will find some challenging shots toward the end of the course, with enough bushes and trees to learn new line shaping skills. Experienced players won't find a whole lot of challenge, it's mostly a putter course other than the wide open bomber. I wouldn't go out of your way to play this one, but it's not a bad place at all for a beginner to try out the sport.

Fun little course
- The majority of holes make good use of obstacles to make shots challenging. Pretty good layout for a smaller course.
- A couple of longer distance shots that you may not usually find on a 9 hole course.
- Nice baskets
- Course was easy to drive to/find and had plenty of parking.
- Free to play. Can't beat free!
- Tee Pads are dirt pits with wood chips. Footing can be sketchy at times.
- No course map/tee signage. Holes are easy enough to navigate, but signage would be a nice addition to this course.
- This part of the county can get HOT. Didn't see anywhere to get water so make sure that you bring water if planning to play in the hotter parts of the year.
- Watch out for snakes. Didn't see any, but the course is prime for them
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course that is probably 10 minutes or so drive from Kit Carson DGC that is DEFINITELY worth checking out. Easy to get to, it can offer up a nice warm up round before going over to Kit Carson. It's always awesome to see more courses popping up in the area, especially when they're well thought out and well designed for the space they reside in.
