Pros: By far, the best feature of this course is an outstanding view of the Flat Irons mountains in the background. All by itself, this beauty would make almost any course nice to play, and it certainly increased my enjoyment substantially.
*There are moderate elevation changes on most of the holes.
*Good concrete tees.
*A warm up basket near the parking lot.
Cons: -There are no tee signs, so that can make it hard to find the next tee, and there are no hole lengths available. Also, the baskets don't have any numbers on them, so it can be hard in spots to tell which basket to throw to. Make sure to print out a course map (online at DGCR) before you go.
-Too many open holes for my taste.
Other Thoughts: Course Level = White (most suited for Intermediate players rated 875-925)

If you like open courses where you can let your disc fly to baskets that are open and unguarded then this would be a good course for you. I enjoy more trees and obstacles, so I liked holes 6 & 7 the best here. Still, even though the course itself was rather lackluster, playing in the cool of the early morning with views of the Flat Irons was a great way to start the day.
