A pretty nice little residential park course
3 Helpful / 4 Not
Pros: Makes good use of the relatively limited amount of land
3-4 pin placements per hole, adds variety for locals
Widefield Park is well-maintained. Grounds crews were out mowing while we were out for our round
Pro and Am tees for most holes
Helpful locals (we had some trouble finding holes 8-12 and 14)
The course isn't too long for beginners
You'll need to use every shot in your bag at least once here to score well, but newer players can get away with just BH and lay up on a few areas.
Cons: Grass was long after you leave the park area - hole 5 or so. The grass was wet with dew so my shoes were soaked completely through by the end of hole 1 (it was mowed later during our round). It wasn't as enjoyable having soppy socks and shoes for an entire round.
Holes 8-12 are across the road from the rest of the course, which made them difficult to find. We never found 14.
Holes 7-13 feel pretty similar.
Beginners will have plenty of opportunities to lose discs in the running creek and poison ivy.
No long holes to really air it out.
Course map at the park entrance is weathered to the point where it's completely illegible.
Other Thoughts: Experienced players can get by with just a putter and a mid. I'm not a distance thrower by any means and used my DX Leopard exactly once on the 18th pro tee. Otherwise, I was teeing off with my Aviar or Shark.
Some tee markers are missing.

Pros: The course has a wide variety in lengths. This was nice. Several holes had an abundance of trees between you and the basket, especially number 17. This course requires some finesse.
Cons: The OB's were very intimidating. Let go to late or throw an under-stable disc (if you are a righty) and you are right over the barb wired fence of many less than happy residents. Rescuing one disc took about 30 minutes to count the houses and talk to the owner, and finally return to the course. The creek also provided a problem. Fast water steep sides make for a tough rescue.
Other Thoughts: I would play this course regularly only if I lived within a few minutes. It's not worth a long drive.

Walk in the Woods
Pros: This course is fairly unassuming with some variation. The course is entirely flat with a small, but quick creek. Most of the holes wind along the creek around the mature trees. There are several ace possibilities. Many holes have multiple pin positions and multiple tee pads which increase the difficulty. The trees affect almost every shot.
Cons: The lack of elevation (surprising because Springs is so hilly) makes the course bland. The course is very easy even from the long tees. I would not want to play here when the creek is high. You cannot avoid the creek unless you layup on most of the holes.
Other Thoughts: If you live in Denver, I recommend Cottonwood. This is not an amazing course. It is a nice course with some easy holes. I could see some really low scores here. The course has grass, but many dirt patches. There is a very nice memorial by hole #3 for victims of a plane crash.

Pros: It is pretty open so you have less chance to loose a disc. The river that runs through some of the course is very nice and fun to play around.
Cons: Nothin too cool about it. Just a regular course in a park.
Other Thoughts: Out of three Courses in the Springs, this one is third for me.
