 Nice Little Practice Course

Pros: Good Baskets, very nice tees (could be a little longer for the longer holes), and decent signage. Tee signs have distance, map and par info. Navigation is intuitive. There is some nice elevation to work with on the first 7 holes. The grounds are clean and the walls/fences keep prairie dogs off the course. There is adequate parking, beautiful Boulder scenery and a weekly league.
Cons: Very little challenge on this course. I shot -6 with no bogies which is exceptionally good for me. More than half the holes are under 200ft and 8-10 are the only three that really need a driver. There is very little in the way of obstacles save for a few trees, which probably make life a little tougher in spring/summer. But still, this is a very underwhelming course for people who want a challenge. And it seems like there's a lot more space to work with to get some longer holes, especially the open field on 17 and 18.
Other Thoughts: It's kind of a shame that this course couldn't be more exciting. At least Boulder has a full 18-hole course now. Great for practicing your mid/short game, great for beginners who've never played as well as recreational players, great for a confidence boost (you'll score much better here than you would on a hard course) and it would also be a challenging one disc round. I think I may try it next time I'm out to play...

 Good Course for a practice

Pros: Holes 1-7 are fun but short. There are lots of trees and elevation changes on these holes and you can practice many multiples shots.
Cons: Holes 8-18 are straight and fairly short. The holes are extremely close together. It may have benefited the course to eliminate some of these hole and perform a re-design.
Other Thoughts: I would suggest playing the first seven holes and either going back to hole one and playing 1-7 again or going home. The remaining holes can be dangerous on busy days and are boringly straight. Trees would benefit 8-16 and make them more difficult.
