Typical Front Range
1 Helpful / 0 Not
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.

Fun work on Hyzer bombs

Pros: Teepads 4
Tee signs 4
I really enjoyed this course except for big walk back to cars. Nice tricky fairways around the little creek.
Cons: Big walk back to cars was a drag. I started on 3 and finished on 2. Missing some terrain everything tends to be hazers
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed this course it was clean and easy to follow

Pros: distance! (beginner arm here) 250 or better on your drives to play here (imo). One hole was playing over 600....Some challenging holes midway trough course with trees and dry creek calling for a reasonable placement of shot, but not impossible.
Cons: Distance......Maybe not the best place for beginners. Strong potential for lost discs along the dry creek. Witch is not dry, and comes into play in several areas. The weeds/overgrowth can swallow a disc in some areas as well.
Other Thoughts: I am about 3 months into disc golfing and found this course to be be a challenge and fun. (+13 with one melt down hole that cost me 4 and a lost disc.....) When i bought my beginner three disc pack, i came right to westmonster form the store. I was a little discouraged @ that time and wondered if disc golf was for me? Three months later I found this course to be a fair challenge requiring some well placed shots, and other areas with room to rip at it with reckless abandon.

Pros: -Good for big arms
-Easy to navigate
-Minimal foot traffic
-You only need to bring two discs
-Nice tee pads and hole markers
Cons: -Boring, two drives and putt
-Not much of a challenge
-Like Bird's Nest, big space without a lot of thought
Other Thoughts: Start on hole #3 next to the parking lot. This way you will end in the lot. I don't know why you would make people walk two holes to start when you just could have numbered the holes correctly, weird.

Pros: Close to a lot of other things in the Westminster area. The first nine holes (what I've played) are not bad, but not particularly interesting.
Cons: There are a lot of weeds and seeds and stickers that will end up in your shoes in this course. Also, there is little to no shade until around the seventh hole, so bring sunblock or be ready to be cooked. Though the baskets are well maintained, most of the tee signs have been ripped up pretty badly and could use new stickers.
Other Thoughts: This is not a good course for people who can't throw the disc very far. I'm no master myself and it can be daunting when you see most of the hole distances over 500 feet. It can be frustrating for players to be three or four over par before they even get within putting range.
I just hope the back nine is more interesting, which it looks like it is... and has a lot more traps.

Some Good Holes But Lots of Filler
6 Helpful / 0 Not
Pros: -DGA baskets that are in decent shape.
- Nice concrete tee-pads that are nice and long.
-Tee-signs at each hole (that show pin position and give the hole length.
-Each tee-sign is numbered on the back, which makes it easier to navigate the course.
-The course is fairly easy to navigate and it is usually pretty obvious which tee-pad is next and which basket you are throwing too.
-The course has a good amount of elevation.
-Water comes into play on quite a few holes. Hole 1 pro tee-pad throws over a part of a lake and quite a few holes on the back nine throw around a river.
-The holes that throw near the river are the best holes on the course, because since the river is pretty overgrown, it provides some interesting risk/reward situations of do you go for it and risk having to look for your disc in the thick brush or do you take the safe route and avoid the brush.
-For those that like long holes most of the holes on this course are over 350 feet, with quite a few in the four hundred range in the right pin position and even a few exceeding 500 or 600 feet.
-Information sign at the beginning of the course.
-Multiple pin positions on all of the holes.
-Some of the pin positions are on hillsides or have drop-offs right into the river, which adds some risk and reward to putting.
Cons: -While this course has some nice holes that are a lot of fun, it also has a lot of throwaway filler holes. Holes 2-8 are mostly wide open shots with very few obstacles and aren't very exciting.
-The course gets very muddy and wet, so if it has been rainy or snowy don't wear your good shoes.
-Many of the tee-signs are peeling and hard to read and need to be replaced.
-There are groundhogs in the area, which add to the muddiness.
-The area around the creek and the pond are quite overgrown and while it does add some nice risk reward, it also can be frustrating to find your disc in the brush at times.
-The course plays near a lot of sidewalks and bike paths and on a nice day you will probably be waiting on some holes for other park users to get out of the way.
-There is a very long walk back to the parking lot from hole 18 and some of the holes have a bit of a long walk between.
-I wish the distance was balanced a little bit better, there are very few holes under 300 feet and the long distance gets a little repetitive. Players who don't throw very far. may become frustrated by the consistently longer distance holes. Overall, it would be nice to have some shorter holes to add variety to the course.
-Water in creek is very murky and finding a disc in it won't be much fun.
-No trashcans or benches on the course. No shade either so if it is a hot day out bring lots of water.
-It would have been nice if they could have brought the lake into play on more than just one hole.
Other Thoughts: Overall, this course definitely has some fun and interesting holes but it has far too many, wide open filler holes that are not very exciting to be a truly great course. Its a pretty good round if you are in the area and looking to get a round in.

Pros: -First of all this course is very easy to find and is just a short walk from the parking lot.
-The park itself is very nice and open.
-The concrete tees are nice and the baskets still have their structural integrity.
-The course is very easy to follow. A person who has never been here can easily find his/her way around without a map
-Beginner friendly. Unlike the other courses in the Denver area, this course is big and open with just a small chance of losing your disc in the water.
-Has a few interesting shots with elevation and blind tee shots that give this course a little spice.
Cons: -The tee signs were put in a few years ago I assume, because now they are a mess or gone. Some tee signs show that the hole is 400' away when it couldn't be more then 250' away. Brand new signs would make this place at least half a star better.
-I mentioned that the fairways are well kept, however, if you do not keep it in the fairway there is all kinds of thorns and brush that will pick you apart if you are not careful.
-There is a long walk back to the parking lot from hole #18.
-Have a person spot you. Like mentioned, there are a few blind tee shots to precarious pin placements so a spotter would help locating a disc.
-This course has a lot of repetitive shots and I could see it become boring if I played here often enough
-This course is very crowded with other discers, it is good that the sport is really active out here but bad that you may have to wait.
Other Thoughts: When I was up in Denver on vacation I played here and Interlocken Park, this course is a bit easier and a lot more fun to bring my family that does not play disc golf as much because of the low chance to lose discs.
This course is great for the land that it is on and is a passable course. If you are in the area and you are a newer player or just want to play quickly this may be a course that you should consider.

Pros: The course uses the entire lower half of the park. While it crosses over paths, it is designed to be able to see incoming traffic. 12-18 are across the main parking lot, little to no foot traffic, and Big Dry Creek ups the challenge level. Worn paths and good tee pad markings.
Cons: First 10 holes are relatively boring, all field play. I have lost three discs on 14+15. Not many tree or obstacles to make things interesting. That being said, when the wind blows even the slightest bit, theres no chance of playing here.
Other Thoughts: Bring your binoculars! there are many hawks/falcons living in the area. I saw a green warbler my first time out. The creek drys towards the end of autumn, so discs lost in the creek are more obtainable. Its a course worth checking out at least.
