Pros: A course in miniature. Six baskets, with the farthest standing no more than 130 feet from the tee. All holes consist of a short curve leading to a bright pink basket. It's fun to grab a putter and throw down a round in five to ten minutes. The challenge, if you want to call it that, comes from the baskets. They have a reduced diameter, meaning getting it to stick in the chains is much harder. That means two things. That aces are still rewarding, even at the short distance, because you need to hit it dead center to even have a chance. And that you will need to absolutely park it to have a reasonable chance at a two. Just not much room for error putting.
On its own, of course I wouldn't recommend it. For kicks after a round at Pyramids? Should provide for some laughs and maybe the occasional triumph. Or alternatively, a much more fun way to warm up then the standard practice basket.
Cons: Not the course doesn't achieve the presumed objective. But that objective wasn't aiming very high. Pink won't provide more than ten minutes of fun. It's very well done for what it is, so it's tough to find a con, other then the severe limitations of what you can do on the course.

Pros: Six holes with very nice tee pads and baskets in great shape. Signage is accurate and top notch. Course is thought out well, with some elevation and mixture of lefty/righty holes. You will earn your birdies though, as these are not your typical DG baskets. These are a little smaller with not as much chains to catch the frisbee. You can leave your drivers in the bag and take a mid and a putter with you.
Cons: Now, for what it is worth, it is, after all, six holes. You can't really come up with other cons for it, but three is still a pretty good rating.
Other Thoughts: This is a good warm-up for a full round on the regular course, and you can play it for free when you pay for a regular round. If you like ace runs, this is your course, and you can also, for a dollar, try for an ace to win the pot. You will need a partner to verify your ace, like usual. Nice course to introduce someone to the sport, with holes no longer than perhaps 130'.

Pros: Quite possibly the best six hole course out there. Fly pad tee pads on every hole. Full color tee signs, although not entirely necessary due to the length of the holes. All the baskets are pink powder coated Gateway Bullseye Baskets. They definitely will make you practice your accuracy. Holes range from 96-125 feet and are in a previously unused area in between several holes of the regular Pyramids course. This makes it a very fun course for average and experienced players and a great course to teach someone on. Each hole is unique from every other one with either elevation changes or basket placement. There are two straight shots, two right to lefts and two left to rights. Takes only a few minutes to play each round. Great for a warm up to your round on the full course. And you only need one disc!
Cons: Only six holes. There isn't really anything bad to say, you just have to take the course for what it is.
Other Thoughts: Free to play once you have signed in for the day or made a purchase in the pro shop. For more of a challenge play the following Safari:
Pink tee 6 to Pink basket 1
Pink tee 2 to Silver basket 11
Pink tee 3 to Pink basket 4
Pink tee 5 to Gold basket 7
Silver/Gold tee 1 to Pink basket 6
