Pros: -If you can throw over 200, it's pretty much all ace runs.
-Tee pads, multiple basket locations, and tee signs on most holes.
-It's a nice park.
Cons: -Locals are not very inviting or friendly
-The holes are all short and easy to approach.
-The other golfers there are rude. Who walks around a course with a radio blaring? I helped one guy with his disc and he walked over mine without saying a word. You're welcome.
-You won't want to putt most holes as water pools around the base of baskets because of poor irrigation.
-Way too may people. This is not a place to have a course.
Other Thoughts: Just because Steady Ed designed this course doesn't mean he put any time or effort into it. Very clique-ish atmosphere takes away from the aesthetic.

Pros: there are some trees and water hazards which are rare in a CO course. #7 and #17 are good holes but i don't really enjoy any of the other ones at all.
Cons: short, flat, kids that steal your discs off the fairway, crowded, skate punks, cyclist, roller-bladers, runners, walkers, smelly porta-potty, lots of opportunities to hit the teepad of the next hole with your drive, when the river runs fast it is pretty murky and hard to find your disc.
Other Thoughts: i used to play here in 2000 and i much preferred that layout to the one there is now. i don't understand why people like this course.
