Pros: Nice layout, use of space. Nice combination of longer and shorter holes. Nice baskets, teepads. The signage was the best I have seen in Colorado so far. One of the longest and nicest 9 hole courses I have ever played.
Cons: The bathroom was quite nasty. As stated by a few other reviews, the park goers have no idea that disc golf is happening around them so take note of that.
Other Thoughts: I usually expect 9 hole courses to be short and boring, easily played with a teebird or a putter. Other reviews have mentioned geese problems, but I must have hit this course at the perfect time because I saw no geese or even signs that geese had been there. This course was long and had a great layout for the space. Well worth going out of the way for if you are driving through Longmont, and a great local course to this little town.

impressed for a 9 hole in CO
Pros: Beautifully maintained park! The grass looks like it could be from a ball golf course. Great tees, great baskets, and 2 different practice baskets about 150 ft from each other around a tree so you can throw approaches back and forth then putt out to warm up. Trash bins at every tee! The water hazards come into play, but as long as you don't completely shank your drive, they aren't very menacing. I actually enjoyed the holes played next to the street where you can put your drive out over the road and watch it fade back in. Course design in the pin positions we played showed good use of the obstacles present, some had light posts directly in line with pin, others were fairly well guarded by trees. Played on a thursday evening, and I didn't really have a problem with foot traffic and overcrowding which was a big concern based on other reviews. The signage was top notch, with overhead shots of all pin placements and distances. The front board that has the course map also included club info, all recorded aces, and lots of other good info. I was impressed at the effort that went into the signage here.
Cons: There's no elevation change on this park at all. I could definitely see that foot traffic and overcrowding were a possibility, even if that wasn't the case when we were there. I also see where others didn't like throwing over (or next to) the road, but I was entertained by it.
Other Thoughts: Of the 9 hole course I've played here in CO, I'd have to rank this as the best one yet. It's not going to ever be a world class tournament quality course, but was very well designed for the space it uses, and was flat out more interesting holes than the other 9's I've played out here.
