Pros: The Pros and Cons are all pretty well covered by other reviews. I don't want to rehash all of those.
Cons: No real shade
Other Thoughts: This course hasn't been reviewed since 2014, so I thought I'd just say that it is still here. It's still a long course, but isn't all that technical. I like the hole on the back 9 with the elevated pin, kinda breaks it up a bit.

 Wide Open - Long Holes

Pros: Very accessible, rarely crowded. Have played this course MANY times. They are definitely making an effort to improve it. Hard to loose a disc here ESPECIALLY when properly maintained. Are getting better about keeping grass mowed and such.
Cons: few trees or obstacles. Fairly repetitive, straight, LONG throws. I don't have a great arm, so it is VERY challenging. If grass is long it is EASY to loose a disc.

Pros: -new cobblestone tees, solid DGA baskets, good signs
-lots of distance, holes average almost 400'
-elevation present on the edges of the basin, a few elevated tees
-2 basket positions on all but two holes
-trees planted in the open areas, will help in some years
-holes 14-18 have better obstacles, more interesting
Cons: -mostly wide open, few obstacles, no shade
-tall grass: good for optional OB, pain in the neck finding your drive
-lack of obstacles and mostly flat = repetitive, lots of long holes, and no forced lines
-a few long walks between holes
-needs a few shorter holes, at least to change it up
-closed during CSU football games
Other Thoughts: Hughes Stadium is the definition of the average course. It is mostly wide open so the holes are long, boring, repetitive, and you can throw any shot you want over and over again. The saving grace is the elevation around the edges of the basin in which the course is built. There are a few elevated tees and a few baskets on the side of a hill. I did like hole 11, one of the shorter holes and plays across and down the side of a hill.

In several years the trees that have been planted will begin to have an effect on how the course plays. For now this course is pretty unimpressive and brutal in the mile high sun. Big arms will like this course and locals looking for a change of pace from Edora. If you're just in the area looking for a round, Edora is the place to go.

  Play Long Grass as O.B.

Pros: Nice cobble stone tee pads. Good tee signs. Plenty of opportunities to air out your drives. Several holes with elevation change and a few mandos. Effort has been made to make the course more interesting like the option to play unmowed areas as O.B. One elevated basket with an island green.
Cons: If you don't play the unmowed areas as O.B. then I can see where the course can be repetitive.
Other Thoughts: The trees are all young so it will be a few years before this course matures into a really good one. I saw sprinkler heads around some of the trees so that should help. Play the long grass areas as O.B. and I think you will find this course quite a challenge.

 Nothing Special

Pros: Nice new tee pads
The Tee signs are good
There has been some effort to make the course better with the addition of some mando's
Course is typical pretty empty so good place to practice
Cons: The course is built in a flood basin. It can be very very wet and the grass grows fast because of this.
A lot of similar shots
Can be windy
Other Thoughts: If the grass was cut more and not just in the fairways and there were shorts pin placement it would be a great beginner course. There isn't to many ways to lose a disc as long as the grass is cut.

 Decent Course

Review By: LoganPeiffer

Pros: New launch pads and baskets, good for practicing long drives, as others have suggested. Minimal vegetation because the course is new, once vegetation grows in, it should have more potential.
Cons: Repetitive play, the course crisscrosses the field that it's set on so many holes are the same one played earlier but are down the hill that you played up on the last go around. The course is generally more windy than EPIC or other courses in the area because of where it's situated.
Other Thoughts: Some launch pads have yet to be put in.

Pros: Great course for anyone wanting to practice drives or long shots with minimal obstacles. Great scenery and well maintained.
Cons: Can get a little boring and repetitive. The wind can also be more severe than other courses in FC.

Pros: The course is laid out across a large bowl, with a dirt roadway splitting it. Holes average probably around 325'.
* Lots of open space
* Finding the next hole is aided by a well-mowed field--follow the mow paths and usually you'll end up in the right place
* Clean and safe
* A few holes diverged from the sameness of the course (see the cons list); 14 for example had the basket hidden behind a hillock
* Great views
* A couple extra-long holes (600')
* Two possible basket placements per hole
Cons: * A couple holes have proximity to the roadway, which can get pretty busy
* Same comment as a number of other reviewers have suggested--it's mostly the same thing. Either down a short hill and out a flat, or vice versa, or across the flat. Holes are generally straight-line affairs now, though that should change as the trees grow.
* Nice signage for each hole, but often it's not clear from the diagram which placement you're looking at.
Other Thoughts: The course officially closes during CSU games. We were there a few hours prior to a Saturday night game. There was parking along the roadway by the entrance to the course. It also looks like there is ample parking when it's not a game day (the lot was gated off Saturday).

Most tees are brick stones (no mortar) and in great shape; a few holes are dirt still with piles of bricks waiting to be laid. There are a number of trees planted across the bowl, and for now they do little to alter the game. I figure in 5-7 years they will make the course considerably more interesting.

 Avg Course with Potential

Pros: -Lots of elevation change (features uphill, side hill and downhill shots)
-This course has a lot of distance on it as most of the holes are over 350 feet.
-Good grip and rip course
-Since is a new course it has nice new baskets that are in good shape and catch well
-Hole 13 is a raised basket on a man-made pyramid that makes and otherwise straight boring hole a little interesting.
-Every hole except for two of them has two pin positions on it that usually varies at least the distance up a but.
-Bike rake near the first tee if you want to bike the the course (its not necessary but its a nice touch).
-Holes 14-18 have more character than the other holes (they have more obstacles, good distance and use the elevation will). These holes give a glimpse of what this course could be when the saplings they planted grow up a little bit.
-Nice brand new tee-signs (show the layout of the hole and the distance to each pin position).
-Very few people besides disc golfers in the area (except during winter-see cons)
Cons: -Very wide open and almost all of the shots are straight shots (trees have been planted to help make this more challenging)
-Can be a little hard to navigate at first as on a few points in the course two tee-pads could be the next tee-pad, which leads to some unnecessary walks.
-The baskets don't have any numbers marked on them, which would help navigation slightly
-A couple of the holes have a bit of a long walk between them
-Get somewhat repetitive due to the mostly wide open holes and none of the holes force you to throw a certain line.
-The tee-pads are dirt for now and will eventually get rutted from use if they aren't replaced with concrete. Due to the wide open aspect the course doesn't provide much challenge yet.
-Plays course to a road on a couple of the holes
-The course is closed for play during Colorado State University home football games.
-If you are crazy like me and play with snow on the ground, holes 2, 4 and 5 are unplayable due to a sledding hill.
Other Thoughts: This is an average course with a lot of potential. I can't wait to play this course when some of the trees have grown up a bit because then it will be a solid fun course. The last five holes are the best on the course and I will enjoyed them and they show what the rest of this course could be with a few more obstacles. Good course for players who like lots of long holes.

Pros: Lots of real long wide open shots. Great new signs. Lots of parking. Really hard to lose a disc.
Cons: Dirt tee boxes are ok. Kind of boring shots, mostly all are long and straight. Granted its a new course with lots of sapplings that will eventually become obstacles.
Other Thoughts: Give this course a few years and it could greatly improve.
