Pros: Great views of the flatirons
Raptors
Still has that new course smell
Not crowded, yet
First 7 holes are challenging
Bathroom
bus/ bike access
Good for new-average players
Cons: Until 2014 when final development and construction is complete, the back 11 holes are not complicated.
Only 2 big holes, some are too short.
Airport rd parking lot full on weekends, park on the W side, Sterling dr
Other Thoughts: Old junkyard parts all over. (collection pile in SW corner of course)
2 holes on groomed grass, 11 on native grass, 5 on cactus
The course will improve and grow in 2014.

Pros: 18 holes in Boulder!

The course is short enough to make it fun to learn and grow on.

The variety of throws available is complete. I've seen every type of throw executed well (and tried most with mixed results).

Excellent place to work on mid-short game, with two long shots.

Saturday's standing round happens every week, regardless.

Existing tall cottonwoods and siberian elm trees are perches for big raptors, who are fun to watch as they stalk prairie dogs and squirrels.

I saw a plains spadefoot (a toad) there the other morning. Watch your step!

NO prairie dogs were killed during the preparation of the course. They were censused, evicted,and re-located.
Cons: Prairie dogs- the fence is meant to keep them out, but it is flimsy, and the gates are going to get beat up.

Holes 1-7 are a virtual cactus patch. Bring boots, not sandals.

The status of the park as a previous auto junk yard means that there are weird hazards- rebar, sharp and rusty pieces of metal, etc.

No trash cans, yet.

It took 10 YEARS to get this park in place. Expanding it into the athletic field and prairie dog town will take forever.
Other Thoughts: Recent floods have kept the park green, and heavy with foliage. Chances of losing discs have gone up. Wood chips have filled in heavy-usage spots, but more could be done. No trash cans installed, yet, but parks staff keep existing containers clear. I've seen unleashed dogs earn their owners citations, so clean up after yourself, and follow the rules.
