Barren, but fun
Pros: This course is wide open and you have a lot of long shots to improve your drives. There are not too many players to make it crowded. The back 9 will force more accurate long drives. There are some fun holes to watch your disc just glide down the hill. Good course for big arms.
Cons: Bring a course map if you plan to play it all. The first 9 are easy to locate. There are not too many trees to shoot around so its just wide open shooting. There is a creek that runs by half of the holes. Thick trees and bushes near the bank make retreival tough.
Other Thoughts: Plan to walk a lot at this course. If you play in the summer the weeds can eat your discs if they get lost. Walking from hole 18 back to the parking lot close to the course beginning is a long walk. My advice is to park near hole 11/12 and walk down to hole 1 then you will be close to your car. After a hot afternoon there is nothing worse than having to drag yourself a mile back to your car after a grueling course.

Much Better Than Expected!
Pros: This course is underrated in my opinion. While many of the holes on the front nine are very open the back nine has immense character. The course is in a separate area from the soccer and baseball fields, so you won't have to worry about throwing at people, except for the occasional trail that crosses the fairway. The first hole throws directly over a lake and the small trees on the far side of the lake make for an interesting hole. The next few holes are wide open, but give you a chance to practice those long drives. At number 7 it starts to get interesting when the creek and some trees come into play. Number 14 was my favorite hole, it throws down a hill to a basket surrounded on three sides by the creek. The signs at every tee-box make finding the holes easy. The unique prairie grass makes for an interesting course and multiple hole placements for every hole keep the experience changing.
Cons: The lack of trees makes some of the holes boring, but small trees have been planted on many of them. The steep walls on the sides of the creek and numerous wetlands make retrieving your disc from the water difficult. If you're opposed to walking in the weeds this course is not for you.
Other Thoughts: This course has a lot of space, it's not jammed into a tiny park next to basketball courts and skate parks. Worth the visit if you're in the area, especially if you just played Badlands.

Pros: This is one of those recreational type of parks with ball fields and a skate park, so you will be able to find a bathroom but you will not be able to bring a small child and have them play at the play ground. The park is easy to find and there is plenty of parking. The course follows a creek and circles a lake. There is a mix of park grass and badlands grass, however the badlands grass is not the type that you would want to mow because of it uniqueness. The tee pads are concrete and the signs give you a general direction to the basket. Number seven was my favorite because it has you throwing over two bends of a creek and a bike path in between trees. This course was fun for just letting it rip.
Cons: On the day I played it was just sparsely populated enough to not get any help with being pointed in the right direction. I badly needed a map because there are no signs after the basket. For the most part the course is just wide open and there is not much challenge variety. Keep an eye on those discs in the weeds, also wear socks. Make sure to look out for people on the bike path.
Other Thoughts: An easy to find course in the north Denver area. After the first time I played it I felt it wasn't anything special. However, the more I think about it, I think this is one of the better more complete courses I've played in Colorado.
