- Good variation of style and length. Some very steep up and downhill. A few throws across the pond and a few have trees in the way. Distance from 200' to 450' though not really any par 4's.
- Concrete tee-pads are marked with number. They are pretty long (though a little skinny)
- Some elevated baskets
- High quality baskets are very visible.
- Sign with course map in parking area
Cons: - No map showing location of pin on tee-pad
- Course map here made it a little difficult to navigate. Was off on a few of the holes but made it through OK
- Hard to see tee pads from a distance
- Baskets don't have hole number. Threw to the wrong basket a couple times.
- Some of the greens seemed ridiculously small and the bog/cat-tails/ditch would have probably eaten more discs if it hadn't been winter.
- There were a lot of roads and fences that were very close to the holes. Difficult to see from tee-pad and wasn't sure what was OB. I'm sure the locals have their rules.
Other Thoughts: Just wanted to give an updated review since nobody has reviewed it for a while. With some better signage indicating OB, mandos, etc., could see giving this course 4 stars. I imagine it gets kind of nasty in the summer but playing it in December before the first snowfall seemed like ideal conditions.

 Fun Western Slope Course. Must Play

Pros: -Variety of Challenging Shots
-Varying distances
-Test both back hand and side arm shots
-Interesting tee positions
-Quiet park
-green grass that is mowed for several tee positions
Cons: -Its Olathe, its Hot in the summer!
-Few very tricky shots to throw if you aren't familiar with the course that come result in a lost disc

Other Thoughts: This is probably my favorite course on the western slope. Its something you would expect to see in the front range with the quality of baskets and thoughtfulness on the layout but without the crowds. the MOD guys really did a great job with this course.

 Local crew working on course

Pros: 18 Brand new Discraft baskets purchased through local donations were installed Fall/2014! New tee box locations as well. New island hole on 11 in the middle of cattails. Hole 13 now shoots over the pond with drop zone on right. New configuration on 16,17 designed to eliminate gimme birdies. The course is getting better with a very active local crew: MOD Squad (Montrose, Olathe, Delta). New pin placements all over the course, which plays tougher than in the past. Lots of unique holes. Signature hole 18 tee shot shooting over a large pond. Big varieties of shots. Plenty of chances to air it out- but carefully because OB is never too far away!
Cons: A few disc eating areas if you throw carelessly, including prickers, deep ditches, cattails, multiple ponds. Pretty muddy after the rain. Looking for some concrete tee pads in 2015. Lots of water hazards on back 9 so maybe chuck some Blizzards that float...JIC. A lack of vegetation on 14-16 makes for a dull experience but this is disc golf in the desert!
Other Thoughts: Plenty of upside left in this course.

 Potential in the Pits

Review By: nightwing

Pros: -Some challenging up and down shots.
-Some challenging water shots too.
-A few interesting Pin Placements.
-A fun Do-It-Yourself feel to the PVC Baskets.
-Ample Parking and close to town.
-Not too many non-players to play around.
Cons: -The PVC baskets get old fast: the discs bounce out. -The park is mostly raw space. Mud-Dust-Bogs etc
There is a small grassy area in the middle and the 2 sides more closely resemble a construction site.
-There are too many wide open feature-less holes.
-More wind than view in this location.
Other Thoughts: I was surprised to hear that the course may have been around for about 8 years and the park about 11?
There really is not a lot of love here yet.
This could be a 3 star course some day but not yet.

Pros: Interesting variety on the course
Cons: No tee pads. Too much vegetation on some holes. Cops stole my beer.
Other Thoughts: I would give this course a higher rating except for holes 11 and 12 which are pretty much a guaranteed lost disc when allowed to overgrow the way they were when I last played, 9/11/10. Oh yeah, and the cops stole a case of beer from my car for no good reason at all.

There I was, having a perfectly nice day, taking photos to upload on this site and playing a casual round. Not a soul in sight. Miles from anywhere and here comes Ms. Buzzcut local fuzz out of nowhere. "Any more beer in the car? I am gonna have to confiscate that too." And she wasn't even old enough to drink it. Damn!

Pros: Fun course overall! Lots of big distance shot opportunities. A few water holes which always make things exiting.
Cons: Homemade baskets! chains are really weak and the basket is really small so expect a lot of spit outs. Tees not marked so its hard to find the next hole.
Other Thoughts: I appreciate what they have done to build us another Disc Golf Course out here. And putting into those homemade baskets only make me appreciate the sport! I always have a great time playing this course.
