Pros: Schaefer DGC is a small, easy, flat, plain and simple place to throw a disc. The layout is an oval shape on a field of dirt and grass, dotted with short evergreens and, oddly enough, bare white tree trunks and branches stuck in the ground. It makes for an intriguing foreign-looking landscape. The most interesting hole on the course is #7, where a criss-crossing web of movable bone-dry cottonwood branches can be rearranged by the more creative and ambitious players to increase or decrease the difficulty of the hole. It's a fascinating obstacle the likes of which you'd be hard pressed to find elsewhere. Another positive note is that if you aren't too hindered by players ahead of you, a 9 hole round can be wrapped up in 15 minutes. You could easily switch up some of your tee-off spots and create your own network of holes if you aren't playing through someone else's line. The short distances can be fun if you're just practicing, throwing new discs, going for aces, or rushing through on a time crunch.
Cons: The course can get crowded on weeknights between 5 and 8 PM. If you're a solo player or small group, this not only means you'll be waiting on those ahead of you, but you'll also need to be mindful of other nearby discers and dogs when throwing since some of the baskets are near adjacent fairways. You could get stuck behind novices, an innocent couple enjoying a lazy round, or a family of 5 with toddlers and a stroller. The network of baseball and soccer fields to the west allows swift breezes from the foothills to whip through. There is no protection from the elements, but you should be able to see incoming weather clearly. Prairie dog holes could easily sprain an ankle if you're not watching where you step.
Other Thoughts: This is not a course to go out on a PBR-pounding, bowl-blazing, swearing rampage with your friends. There are plenty of children and families around the park and the picket fences of a residential area are within reach from several of the holes. Take this course for what it is and enjoy the fact that it is yet another decent place to play a beginner-friendly sport.

Pros: Its local, uncrowded, welcomes the tagging of tee signs for your ace (space provided as well as the post) and is great to introduce players to the game. Popped my cherry there! Hole seven's dance floor is almost changed on a weekly basis with all the stumps and dead tree branches. Come put your spin on it. Dog friendly course as I have never had a problem with my off leash Great Dane with any players and vice versa for those who also bring their pets.
Cons: Distinct lack of obstacles makes this too easy for intermediate and advanced players. My average there is 6 down for nine. During the rainy season it gets very muddy. Prairie dogs bark in your back stroke, holes all over the place. Wide open so the slightest winds can affect your throw if you don't know how to fight it.
Other Thoughts: This is my home course. I play there more often than anywhere else and it is my home and I love it. No traffic can allow you to make your own course to mix it up, try it for fun. A lot of cool people are usually playing and it is a friendly atmosphere. All the pros and cons aside, this is a "passable" course, not great but I call it home. This is where I do my field work and try out all my new discs and throws.

Review By: Kuiky
Played: 15  Reviewed: 5  Exp: 4.4 Years
Pros: Great for beginners. Easily located. Great place just to go if you don't have much time or wanna travel far (at least for myself) Simple shots so good place to boost your ego!
Cons: Prairie dog holes will grab you and trip ya. Watch out! People don't respect the course! Clean up your trash, they offer cans through-out the course if you can't hang onto it for 2 more holes than don't bring it along!
Other Thoughts: I love this course because it makes me feel good! I've had 2 aces myself and seen many others at this course! Great for boosting the ego and just going out to hang out with friends for a quick game of disc.

Pros: Good for first time players and putting practice.
Cons: Growing popularity with the younger crowd, they play in groups of 10. Trash gets left all around and there's several trash cans on course.
Just a barren field with baskets
Go elsewhere if you have the option.
Other Thoughts: I basically live across the street so I play here more than I would like, but it's nice to work on new shots and putting practice.

Played: 5  Reviewed: 5
Pros: + Good for first time players
+ Baskets are in good shape
+ concrete tee pads
Cons: - No vegatation
- an ugly, flat course
- Packed on weekends, no shots require much skill
- windy windy windy
Other Thoughts: I would honestly never play this again, Ken Caryl is 3-4 miles away with more grass, and tree's to make some holes require accuracy..

This course doesn't offer anything that other courses around don't offer better. I would skip this and go to Conifer, or Ken Caryl. You will hae a better time

 A quick lunch break course.

Pros: Quick play ~30 - 35 minutes
Easy for beginners with limited cover.
Some logs used to make holes slightly more challenging and a couple holes great fun. .
Easy to reach location.
Mostly dirt.
Cons: Prairie dogs
Very little shade.
Popular with lots of folks playing. Especially on the weekend.
Other Thoughts: You could use this course for driving or putting practice during the day, midweek.

Pros: Easy to parking right next to the first hole. Navigation is no real issue here, you can see the next tee right next to the previous basket. Teepads are nice large cement pads in great shape. No teesigns, but it is very obvious where the basket is as you can see them all. Need and ace, then some here. Some pretty short holes that are just asking for and ace. Old tree limbs are carefully placed around some of the baskets to add to the challenge and give it a unique feel.
Cons: Flat dry and void of vegitation. Some dry weeds and a few trees but thats about it, except for lots of dirt. Looks like it was built on an abandoned lot. I slightly enjoyed my two rounds here, but after that the excitement was gone. Nothing too special here.
Other Thoughts: You are being watched by prairie dogs all the time. You are playing on their land. They will watch you putt and drive, but at least they are quiet. A beginner course for sure. If you are looking for a challenge then go elsewhere otherwise just bring your putter and work on your short game.

Pros: Baskets and tees are in excellent shape and all at a uniform height.
good flow with easy navigation with the exception of between 5 and 6.
Great use of dead trees to add character to the course and protect some of the most vulnerable greens.
Has it's own part of the park with very little chance of hitting non-golfers except maybe if you loose it way left on 2.
Lot of ace runs here!
It's a mile from my house!!
Cons: Not a lot of variety in shots.Not one hole I can't drive.
if you can throw it 250+ you can putt for birdieon every hole.
Tends to attract a lot of douchebags.Don't be surprised if playing alone the groups of 4+ wont even so much as think of letting you play through.You usually have to skip them.
As with the last paragraph you can't put it beyond people throwing on the same hole your playing.
Litter again the douches strike again.The course has more than enough trash cans and yet there are butts everywhere.A couple of times there were beer cans lying around within 10 feet of a trash can.
Parking lots a little to close for comfort to the first basket and with a lot of beginners playing here I would advise against parking close to the basket.

Pros: Quick and easy course that is great for practicing putts/mid-range shots. It was fun for the beginner and had a few holds that were surprisingly decent (5,6,7,9).
Cons: Not very inspiring due to location. Tees pads not all marked well but only #6 is hard to find (near the far-fence). Some old pathways intersecting the course can beat-up the discs.
Other Thoughts: Bring your whole bag when it is not busy and throw multiple shots per hole to make it a great practice spot for accuracy and putting.

Pros: I will be apparently going against the grain, but out of all of the nine hole courses I have played, this is one of the best. The course has a wide variety of lengths, and obstacles. The paths are paved concrete which is nice. The best part of this course is the 100's of spectators. This course is covered with prairie dogs. You get to disc golf and see some entertaining wildlife.
Cons: The holes are very short, and it is in an odd part of town. Also, hole layout is a bit confusing.
Other Thoughts: I had a blast on this course, and will likely return.
