Great New Layout!
3 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: Great concrete tee boxes on this course, though only a few of the monster tees from the old layout remain. Baskets are in good condition and the signage is very good, featuring a photo of the fairway with different pin positions marked. Signage also includes distances for each pin position. Course is clean, with well maintained grass that allows you to get significant distance out of your roller shots. There are a few trashcans in the park to keep things clean. There's plenty of parking, restrooms are on site, and the park has a number of other activities including a skate park, tennis courts, horseshoe pits, multi-use paths, and more. Navigating the course is much easier than the old layout. The course is well designed with a wide variety of shots and has some significant distance on it with well over a mile of fairway in the longest pin positions. Mature trees, a creek, and other OB areas will challenge your game. The designer made the most of the little elevation changes. A few shorter holes make this course an ace hunting spot. Signature holes include the island hole at 5, the long downhill bomb at 6, and risky shots near the creek on 16 and 18.
Cons: Baskets are hard to spot. If they had any bright colors on them, it would be easier. There is no way of knowing which pin position the baskets are in from the signage. The signage also contains no par information. There are some safety concerns at this course as well as many holes play close to active railroad tracks, a busy road, and multi-use paths. The course gets crowded too, so it's not a great spot to get a quick round in. It would be nice to see more benches at the tees so you could rest your legs while you're waiting for the group ahead of you.
Other Thoughts: This is a great place to play, and a real challenge. Most likely the best course in Fort Collins. The new layout is a huge improvement, though it makes me nervous to throw so close to trains, cars, and joggers/cyclists. Nevertheless, they've done a great job with the terrain they had to work with. Definitely a course worth seeking out.

Pros: Good flow to the course and a decent amount of obstacles/OB's keep things entertaining. New hole 4 is huge and a great challenge for ANY Disc Golfer. The updates to hole 5 were a must and make the course better all on their own. Several new holes around the power station are a great addition for day to day play. Several large trees and a few new OB's to watch out for. Full color signage with distances on each tee! Keeping the old course available for tourneys is a huge accomplishment by the locals/city, can't wait for tournament days!
Cons: Not too many cons come to mind right away as the redesign was truly intended to alleviate most of them. Again, great job. The ladies could really benefit from a bathroom on the east as I have heard a few complaints.
Other Thoughts: Good times. :) The course should now be as popular as ever!
