Strange course

Pros: Not crowded at all
Good tees and baskets
A few fun shots in the rocks
Cons: No trees or water at all
Not much elevation
Power lines running through middle
Other Thoughts: 1-3 are on one side of the street. They have inserted an oil rig in the middle of 3 (It actually makes it a fun obstacle on a course with almost no other obstacles)
Sign said "Future site of high school"

  Solid Course

Pros: The only course in Castle Rock. Somewhere to play a quick round as it is almost never crowded. Some mix of distance but nothing all that drastic. Very hard to lose a disc. Can offer enough challenge to those who have played before but is also a great course for someone being introduced to disc golf.
Cons: No trees! Almost no obstacles to give a variety of shots, if you can throw the right distance and straight this course will be very easy for you. Some of the lengths posted seemed inaccurate to me.
Other Thoughts: Other than spending a ridiculous amount of money on landscaping and many other upgrades, not much can be done. I feel like this course is about as good as it will ever be, which is somewhat disappointing. Overall a good course that is available for people that live in or near Castle Rock.

 A snoozer of a course

Pros: - 1 or 2 shots take advantage of the rock outcroppings, however, would have been nice to see more use of the natural features.
Cons: - Courses don't get much more boring than this, all shots are the same.
- Not much topography to take advantage of. Pretty flat.
- Windy.
- No trees.
Other Thoughts: - This course is very uninspired. There's a tee, then a straight, wide open shot to a hole. Soon you'll notice that every hole is like this. I have a friend that plays this course often as it's right next door and he mentioned wind is often a factor here. Also mentions that it is never busy, so he enjoys the lack of players here that can make for a good practice course.

 Underrated course

2-4    10/5/2014   10/5/2014
Review By: chips n salsa
Played: 13  Reviewed: 7
2 Helpful / 4 Not
Pros: Fun, 18 hole course with some interesting terrain (some boulders, tall grass, shallow marshes). Course is mostly flat with some minor elevation changes, baskets easy to spot, a few birdie opportunities, discs never too hard to find in the grass, well maintained, fairways recently cut, tee boxes well marked.
Cons: Hole four is across the street which can be confusing, sometimes nasty cross-winds, enormous power lines may be an eye sore for some (I think they're fine).
Other Thoughts: This is a fun course. As of this writing, Jellystone is closed until January, 2015. This one is nearby and costs you nothing.

 Decent high-desert course

Pros: Decent variety in distance. There are mowed fairways in the prairie grass. The cap rock here makes for some interesting shots, with some baskets tucked right behind some of the rocks. Next to a nice park.
Cons: There are almost no trees on this course. Hole 2 is the only one with trees, but they are used effectively. The tee signs are not very informative - basically just hole number and length, but it is so wide open that you probably don't really need much more. Some of the tees are uneven, and caused some footing issues for drives. Just one tee/basket position per hole.
Other Thoughts: The course is basically flat, and very wide open. I suppose the wind could be a problem here, but the only significant challenge on most of the holes is the cap rock, which is used pretty effectively to keep this course from being boring. One hole has trees, and a few other have power poles as obstructions. There is almost no penalty to missing the fairway other than not getting to walk in the shorter grass. The cap rock, besides being interesting to look at, also presents a challenge in that it provides difficult footing. Footwork on the caprock is very difficult if you even want to try (I wouldn't, it looked like a faceplant waiting to happen on a runup). Other holes, the caprock is just high enough to block direct approaches to the basket if you are offline. Overall, this is not an outstanding course, but it certainly isn't bad, and entertaining enough for an occasional round here.

 Desert With Baskets

Pros: +Nice enough baskets
+Marked tees
+Somewhat interesting rock formations on parts of the course
+Probably never busy
+Doesn't interfere with other parts of the park
+Nearly impossible to lose a disc here
+Mountain views
Cons: -This place is a dry, dusty desert. There is nothing growing here.
-Very flat.
-There are like 3 obstacles between all 18 holes and all were easily avoided
-This might be the most repetitive course that I have ever played. The holes are all open and are all of a similar distance.
-Pretty far off the interstate. Not worth finding for the traveling player.
-Tees are gravel and are not the best to throw out of. They might hold water on the rare occasions that rain falls in this desert.
-Lots of wind, no shade, you're at the full mercy of the elements.
Other Thoughts: -This place is just a huge waste of baskets. They should move them to anywhere else. Somewhere that has a few trees and some grass.
-Don't waste your time here. It just really isn't fun at all. If you are a traveling player and want to bag the course, bring your favorite mid out and run through the course. Head down to Jellystone for a much more fun round.

 The Same Shot...18 times

Pros: -Baskets in decent shape
-Pretty easy to navigate
-Slight elevation changes
-Offers a decent range of distance (distance is about from 230 feet to 550 feet).
-There are some rocks on the course that are the most interesting feature on the course
-If you like throwing in the wind, this is the course for you.
-Very uncrowded
Cons: -The course is basically the same shot, 18 times. Each hole is pretty much a wide open straight shot, with a variation in hole length from the last hole.
-This course has absolutely no risk or reward and you can throw basically the same shot on every hole, it doesn't force you to vary up your shots.
-The course has almost no obstacles (There are a couple of rocks, a few bushes and a power pole) but none of the obstacles are really big or tall enough to add any challenge to the hole.
-During a wet summer, I imagine this course would get really overgrown and could lead to a lost disc or two.
-This course is really boring and repetitive
-The tee-pads are terrible (they are very uneven). Since they are dirt, after a big rain or snow, they would be very wet and muddy and hard to use.
-Since this course is wide open, the wind can be a monster.
Other Thoughts: This course is a perfect example of land that shouldn't be used for a disc golf course. I don't think a single tree comes into play on this course, which I didn't even know was possible for disc golf course before I played this course. If this course was nine holes it might be a little better, 18 holes of the same shot over and over again just gets to be too much to bear. This course is a ways off of I-25 too. Unless, you live in Castle Rock, don't bother stopping at this course, it is a waste of time.

Pros: This is a free course and allows you to really practice your drives and mid range throws without worrying about losing your discs.
Cons: Very Mundane, no variance in landscape. Discs get eaten up fast by the rocks. Windy.
Other Thoughts: if you are Jonesing to get out and throw and are in the neighborhood, stop by here. Otherwise, go to jellystone in Larkspur, which is just a little bit further south.

Pros: No crowds so you can play a very quick round (1 hour). Cool park for the kids to play on too. Good course for new throwers.
Cons: No shade.
Tee boxes need some help.
Other Thoughts: This high praire course plays very well, if you go in the morning when its cool. The rock out- cropings are really kinda cool, but will destroy a disc. This course is close for me so I play it often, get out enjoy the sun, birds, and open range.
