 What a hike!

Pros: Excellent hole design with a good array of both uphill and downhill shots. Baskets are well kept even though they are temporary due to the short season which the course is open. If you're into hiking this is the best hike I've taken in Colorado thus far on a disc golf course, the calves definitely would shape up nicely after a month or two of this one.
Cons: Excellent hole design loses some of it's luster when you can't find the next hole. Absolutely ZERO tee signs, distance markers, or arrows to the next box. I only found my way around by following paths of half trampled grass. Some of the tee boxes are so short you can't even take two steps into your drive. Try throwing 330 up hill with only two steps. The rough is extremely thick and EATS discs, but that's not so much a con as an observation.
Other Thoughts: Loved the holes, hated the navigation but the holes were so good that the course still deserves a good rating, because once you know the course, navigating it isn't an issue anymore.

Pros: Long open shots. Epic views.
Cons: Need benches.
Other Thoughts: I was in the area on business & played with a local. Lucky, because I would've never found my way around on my own. I plsayed it a long time ago so I don't remember much except it had some epic long shots.

Pros: Some open holes, many are wooded. Allows the finesse palyers a greater level of success. Many forehand shots necesary. Lots of elevational changes. Great views. Many unique layouts.
Cons: Dirt tees. It can take about 2-2.5 hurs to play. Hole 5 easy to lose discs.
Other Thoughts: Defintely worth playing!
