Typical Front Range
Pros: +Nice pads. huge and grippy concrete
+Overall nice place, Westminster clearly has some $$$. Baseball/softball fields were super nice.
+Nice signage, colorful with map of hole (see cons as well)
+Nice baskets with a few basket locations per hole.
+Some minor elevation, especially in the first few holes.
+The few holes that were interesting here involved the creek. It probably won't eat your discs either.
+You shouldn't lose a disc here. It is possible but not likely.
+Lots of parking and I'm sure you can use the rec center for bathrooms, etc.
Cons: -Horrible layout. You start somewhere that you can't park close enough to then you go right past some parking lots after a few holes and then you end up way away from the start. You also do a lot of uneccesary walking around instead of having the next pad close by.
-Open, open, open. Very few obstacles on the whole course. If you like throwing 400+ hyzer bombs all day and not having to control your disc at all then you will like playing here. I didn't really enjoy it. Also no shade on hot days.
-The distances listed on the signs were way off. They were longer than the real distance in most instances. According to them, my 350'ish drives magically became 500'+ drives for this round.
-Prairie dogs everywhere making holes to trip in.
-Walking/biking paths weave through the course and are busy.
Other Thoughts: -This course involves a lot of walking and a little fun.
-I wouldn't stop here unless you need to waste a few hours while your kids are at the rec center swimming or something. This course isn't even great for course baggers because of how long it will take you.
-It seems that parks in Colorado (esp in suburbs) were kind of an afterthought. They weren't prepared for the explosion in population and construction so they didn't set aside much nice land. That is reflected in the lack of quality disc golf in the I25 corridor.

Pros: -nice baskets and tees
-has potential to be a fun course with some interesting landscapes and some fun holes
-located on a nice park
Cons: -the back nine holes were all right on the edge of the river and were not very much fun to play because of the risk of throwing into the water
-the first hole is a long ways from the closest parking lot
-the 18th hole ends about a mile away from the parking lot that was closest to the first hole
-the holes do not flow very well and many times when you are walking between holes you back track a lot
-the main problems are that the course was laid out terribly
Other Thoughts: There were groundhog holes everywhere and they were pretty annoying but it does not really affect the play

Big Drives and Approach Shots
Pros: Holes 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, and 18 offer nice lay-outs and are a challenge to birdie. Some new pins placments have pumped some new life into a sometimes forgotten Denver metro course.
Cons: Still plenty of LONG wide-open holes. It would probably be a discouraging course for beginners who don't throw a consistent +300'. If you get wind it will kick your a$$ even more on the longer holes.
Other Thoughts: I think it's easy to bag on bag on Westy but it is a nice lay-out and makes good use of park space that would otherwise go un-used. I have enjoyed knocking the rust off the early spring arm there.
