 Diverse shots, but bad signage

Pros: PLAYED IN WINTER, light snow on ground, light to no wind, evening session, was great disc weather.
Epic views of surrounding mountains and terrain through the course
No pedestrians to wait for or be in harm of throwing at
Seems dog friendly
Nice pads/baskets
Some real fun elevation drop shots and hooks
Cons: Horrible signage, Half the tee boxes had hole maps
The tee pads had the hole # and distance wrote on it, but were from a previous layout it seemed, since it didn't match with map
Had a map I got from this site with us, but was still very difficult to find tees and hole setups, we were also the only ones out there so nobody to ask or follow
Other Thoughts: Ovwi would playvgere again but definitely need to make a good map or put up some decent signs for next holes. Seemed really confusing for someone who plays a decent amount

Pros: Phenomenal views of Sneffels, etc.
Great use of topography
Lots of variety from open uphill/downhill throws to wooded alleys near ponds, moderately wooded shots by the river, etc.
Well signed.
Cons: Can get windy.
Other Thoughts: I enjoyed this course quite a bit and will definitely make a point to stop by again some time.

Pros: - concrete tees
- lots of good use of the elavation
-most holes have good tee signs with all the info
- good variety of distance, with some shots ranging from 175 to 500 feet
- good variety of different types of shots making throw lots of different lines.
- hole 15 throws over a pond
Cons: - some missing tee signs
- most of the course is easy to navigate but some navigation signage could really help.
- some of the baskets can be really hard to spot
- the course very exposed to the sun and wind
- the front 9 uses the elavation great but doesn't offer many obstacles
Other Thoughts: Bring sunscreen and water. The front 9 is pretty daunting.

Pros: - Good elevation changes
- Nice variety of challenging holes (water, woods, distance, elevation etc)
- They change the baskets around from time to time
- Nice long course
- Has a practice basket before you cross the bridge
- Great views from the front 9. Great walk thru the woods on the back 9.
- Never too crowded that I've seen and I play here a couple times a week. At a minimum once a week (we also like to play Olathe alot too)
Cons: - Hard to find next hole (BRING A MAP)
- Can eat discs if your not accurate
- Lots of cactus, barb wire and broken glass on a couple holes (not a big deal just gotta be careful where you walk)

Other Thoughts: Really fun course but can be frustrating at times. Always provides a challenge and good exercise:)

Pros: Baldridge Park is one of the more underrated disc golf courses in this area. There is an awesome variety of terrain and challenges throughout the entire 18 holes.
- Uphill shots on 2 &3
- Long, open drive-fests like hole 4
- Long, downhill breaks and short downhill birdie ops, like holes 6 & 7
- Water hazards - including a fairway paralleling the river and two holes in the vicinity of a pond - holes 8, 11 & 16
- Tight shots and tree navigation throughout the back nine.

The course has a great mixture of shorter holes and birdie ops, as well as some long holes that are quite challenging. Overall Par 54/58?
Cons: Signage is currently in place at each tee box, although they tend not to stay up very long. A map is a must for the first time playing this course. A new hand drawn map (Course Map II) has been uploaded under the Links/Files tab. It takes a couple rounds to really suss out this course. If you only play it once, it may seem frustrating.

With better signage this course would get way more play! One of the best in Western CO for sure.
Other Thoughts: The back nine is challenging to navigate, but it's all there.

Some tips...
* After hole 9 (the long hole which parallels the river) cross the sidewalk, walk through the trees and brush, to a tee pad near the bmx track.
* The pin for hole 10 is visible from the tee box. After completing this hole, walk behind the basket, past a bench, following a path into the woods.
* Hole 11 is a difficult, hard dogleg right, with major opportunity to lose a disc in the pond. It's relatively short, but challenging nonetheless. The pin is not visible from the tee. Hard par 3.
* The tee for hole 12 is in the woods, via a well-traveled path just to the left of the basket. The pin for hole 12 is barely visible from the tee, through the corridor.
* Hole 13 is a longer hole through the minefield of trees. Currently the alternate pin placement is even further back in the woods, making this a very challenging Par 3.
* To find the tee for 14, walk left, away from the pavilion and back into the trees for 100+ feet. Hole 14 shoots back in the direction you just came from. Pin is visible from the tee.
* Hole 15 parallels the fence before doglegging right into a small alcove of trees. Avoid the heavy woods to the left and fenced in junk yard to the right. Difficult Par 3
* The 16th hole is a great birdie op... arc it over the pond to the basket.
* The tee for 17 is along the sandy track that goes around the soccer field. From the basket on 16, walk up a short hill onto the track and locate the post (no concrete tee pad). The pin is not visible from the tee, so throw across the grass (towards the bmx track and edge of the woods) The pin is way back in there, near a clump of seemingly standing dead trees. Par 4 or hard par 3
* 18 shoots back towards the 8th hole pin (short, steep downhill shot) the baskets are less than a 100 feet apart.

 High mountain desert disc golfing

Pros: The course had some fun elevation shots 2,3,6 and 7. 16 was a fun across the pond, make sure you throw solidly 220 or good luck looking in the merk. Once you make it to hole 8 the course offers a bit. Love that there is a good presence of DG courses in CO along highway 50.
Cons: The pictured signs at each tee are no longer there, which would have made the course a bit easier to navigate starting at hole 9 and 10. Found 11 tee pad but I never found the basket. Followed 16 backwards and found 15 and 14. The point being, some nailed arrow signs or replacement of the previous signs would be immensely helpful to those stopping in for quick go at some high mountain desert DG.
Other Thoughts: We got a late start but would highly recommend an earlier start than we got (12pm). If you're passing through this way it's worth stopping by and playing a round. I would recommend playing with at least 2 as some if the holes might have you on the hunt for your discs.

 Yay Sagebrush and Cottonwoods

Pros: -Good variety of hole distances with holes ranging from about 225 to 500 feet
-Holes 2,3,6,7 and 8 have a lot of good elevation change with holes 2 and 3 playing straight up hill and then 7 and 8 playing back down the same hill.
-The back nine becomes heavily wooded and has a lot of fairways that turn either right are left
-Overall, the course has quite a variety of different holes
-For the most part the baskets are in good shape
-With the exception of two holes, all of the holes have great concrete tee-pads that are a decently sized
-The course has benches scattered through it (though most of them are located on the back nine)
-The tee-signs show overhead view of the hole with the distance on them and they work pretty well
-The course has several holes with water hazards including Hole 16 which plays straight over a pond.
Cons: -The course can be hard to navigate. Many of the holes have multiple paths running in different directions from them and no markings as to which path is the right path to follow so it can sometimes take a little while to find the next hole.
-Many of the baskets (especially on the back nine) tend to blend in and on most of the back nine you will probably have to walk the fairway to find where you are actually throwing at
-Holes 2-7 have pretty much no obstacles on them and are just wide open (but at least most of those holes have some kind of elevation change on them)
-Holes 8-18 have lots of thick rough including sagebrush, tall grass and cottonwoods that could eat up discs to never be seen again and if lost a disc would take a little while to find in the rough
-Several of the tee-signs showed alternate AM tee positions but I was only able to find one of the AM tee positions
-The tee-signs are laminated paper and several of them are starting to come off and may not be there much longer
-The water in the pond looked a little nasty so good luck getting your disc back if you throw it in the lake
-I was never able to find the basket for hole 5
-Holes 16 and 17 didn't have concrete tee-pads
Other Thoughts: This course is a great course with a lot of fun holes and is totally worth playing if you are in the area but it also has it flaws. It gets really hot on this course so make sure you bring lots of water. Also I recommend playing with a buddy so you have spotter for some of the holes that have lots of sagebrush, thick grass and cottonwoods. If you are in the area definitely give this course a try.

Pros: Varied terrain with elevation changes, challenging placements and water hazard. Every hole is unique. Description as "mostly flat" is not accurate. Front 9 has plenty of up and down with exposure to the wind. Back 9 is flat and wooded and sheltered.
Cons: Very difficult to navigate this course even with a map. Not a good course after rain. Ask locals for directions. Rocks will chew up your plastic.
Other Thoughts: This is my home course so I am biased, but one of the nicest courses I have played. Historic artifacts abound. A sharp eye will reveal an old wagon burried to its axle around hole 15, four wagon wheels exposed from the hub up. Sorta cool, if you are into that sort of thing.

Here is a link to a course map.
