Finally, Parker has a course
Pros: - Biggest tee pads I have ever seen
- Easy to follow with good signage
- Huge benches made from trees
- Good use of land
- Man-made obstacles provide some challenges and uniqueness
- Long holes
Cons: - Long grass, watch your disc carefully
- No birdie holes, unless you can throw 290'+
- A couple blind tee shots
Other Thoughts: Kudos to the town and designer, the use of elevation change and terrain makes the course very enjoyable.
The course offers a challenge with its distance, average hole length is 400'.
Unless you are a beginner, I would play every hole as a par 3, except #15 which is 715'.
Hole #5 is down the ditch on the left, blind tee shot.
I'll be back regularly.
Good now and AWESOME later!

Pros: Long holes and long grass
-Lots of land
-Mando's add challenge and keep play safe
-Ginormous tee pads
-Nice tee signs
-Not bad to navigate
-Elevation changes add interesting touch
-Really liked the use of old large pines as benches
-Deadwood use was nice as obstructions.
Cons: The long grass pretty much everywhere is a real detractor at the moment and will add significant time to your game if you don't use a spotter.
A trash can here or there wouldn't be a bad idea, I don't recall seeing any other than the parking area.
I am skeptical if the use of "baseball stone" around the pins is a good idea. It may keep the area around the pin clean but it could also eat up discs as they land. Maybe a heavy pine bark mulch could be added in the future? Easier on discs and would help stick shots coming in hot, imo.
Other Thoughts: Additional pin placements in the future would add variety to the course.
Maybe an additional tee pad on some of the longer holes for those that don't have the arm or technique to throw or compete at the lengthy distances.
Think about mowing only fairway grass and leave tall prairie grass and make it OB.
I loved the course and really can't wait for it to grow-up. I think in 5 years, after the grooming, sculptures, and trees grow....this course will truly be AWESOME. Thanks to whoever put in all the effort now and in the future to make this course what it is....you all did a great job. THANKS.

Brand New Parker Course!

Pros: -This is the first course to open in the Denver Metro area in a while
-Long holes, average hole is about 400ft!
-Good use of land
-Mando's add a good challenge
-Huge tee boxes, like mini helicopter pads
-Nice tee signs
-Easy to navigate
Cons: -Long grass, front 6 is mowed and perfect but after that it could be anywhere from ankle high to chest high grass. This makes makes this course longer to play due to spending at least 10 minutes finding your tee shot on almost every hole unless you land right next to a land marker or make it to the basket.
Other Thoughts: -I think one good mow of the whole course would do wonders and then maybe once a week for the fairways. I mean if they spent this much time and money on building the dog park and course they should groom it a bit. After this course has been played a ton the grass will be trampled down, but right now its scary to throw on some of the holes just because you may not find your disc.
