Pros: Beautiful park with big shade trees and green mowed grass. Course is fairly easy to navigate if you have a map. Locals were also friendly and helpful in locating baskets and next tee. Seems like it would be almost impossible to lose a disc here. I liked the multiple high elevation tee boxes. Course designers did an excellent job using available land and baskets.
Cons: It's hard to think of any cons, I suppose crowded conditions could make this course a bit frustrating, but that really applies to any course. I saw a few non golfers on the course and occasionally had to wait a few minutes for people to clear before throwing, but had no issues with "bums" or any unpleasant people.
Other Thoughts: A local disc craft pro joined me for the last nine holes and sold me a cool breaking bad disc. Over all a great round.
Good fun course

Pros: Nice long open drives, double chain baskets is always nice, love the hills for extra challenge, hills help for a good workout.
Cons: Very hard to figure out for first time players at the course, back nine go to same baskets from front nine so makes navigation a little bit harder.

Everything's Coming Up Rosey
Pros: Wooded park in the city near universities. Course can play short or long, depending on which basket you choose as your target on all holes. Multiple course configurations, but that can become confusing to players who haven't spent much time on the course. Great elevation changes, and challenging shots around large trees. Good for playing on windy days in Albuquerque, due to bowl shape of park and large trees, especially since the other "desert" courses in town have little to no trees to block wind.
Cons: Can be crowded on weekends and busy summer days. Many homeless choose to sleep in park, they can get in your way sometimes, but most know to look out for players. Confusing layout for those new to course, tees are marked with signs but don't point to next tee, whose locations aren't obvious from some of the preceding baskets. Almost all baskets are shared with another hole, and fairways continuously cross one another. Lots of yelling" fore".
Other Thoughts: Good little course that's fun for all levels. Can be some shady characters hanging around in the park, but for the most part it's a fun place to play.

Pros: Basket arrangements and older trees make for a picturesque round. Good course for friendly players and the avid professional.
Cons: Being that the course is downtown, watch for the homeless, the ignorant, and the drug dealers. "Fore" should be yelled whenever the park gets a little full. The course could use not being watered twice a day.
Other Thoughts: Aside from the drug dealers, and the morons who stand next to the baskets, the park is all-in-all one of the better parks in all the state of New Mexico. Come play a round with me - 505-463-9122. I'm always up for a game.
