Pros: Good baskets, nice tee pads. (this is the only reason I gave it 1/2 a point). Nice views, but it's hard NOT to get a view of the flatirons in Boulder.
Cons: Awful use of the space provided. They seemed to purposely avoid all surrounding trees on the back 11 which would be great for obstacles.
The front 7 holes play on a hill with aged trees, lack anything over 300ft, and are tough NOT to birdie. They seemed to run out of room at the last few holes so they jammed a zig-zag pattern of 200ft holes instead of utilizing the beautiful grass area where holes 17 and 18 are.
I appreciate the work put in to build the course, but 11 years?! 11 years and this is the result? I would imagine that the general publics definition of a 11 year in the making, great course wouldn't be a place where you would only have to use the same two discs during your entire round.
People that are true enthusiasts of the sport don't spend time in a car for the view. We do it for the fun and challenge. The #1 rated course in Colorado is Phantom Falls which is a slew of trees and no mountain views but incorporates difficulty.
Other Thoughts: They seemed to place the course on the most level piece of land that boulder has. Not only that, but they avoided all trees on the back 9 so they WOULDN'T come into play. C'mon guys, I appreciate that it is another course in the neighboring area, but if you're traveling to boulder to shoot, it's only a great place to practice an upshot if you get my drift. It's a shame that the money granted was spent on this being that Boulder would seemingly be a mecca for the sport of disc golf.
