Colorado Courses

Postby Schoen-hopper » Wed Jun 24, 2009 1:36 pm

Trying to plan a trip to CO. Wanted to go over the 4th of July, but it may have to wait until later this Summer.

Doing some research on dgcoursereview.com & milehighdiscgolf.org. Huge list of courses, but I've come up with a short list of what looks like the best ones to hit up.

*Ft. Collins- Edora
*Red Feather- Beaver Creek
*Red Feather- Sundance
*Arvada- Badlands
*Conifer- Beaver Ranch
*Pine- Phantom Falls

In CO, I've only played the 2 Colorado Springs courses, Pueblo City Park (loved this one), & Johnny Roberts. All in winter time.

I haven't actually talked to anyone yet that has played CO courses. Which ones have you all played and how did they rate?

All the sweetest courses are in the mountains.

However, out of the courses I've played.

Badlands, Johnny Roberts, Birds nest, Pessimist in Ft. Morgan is pretty good, but I think its a temporary course.

Willis said they are opening Ghost Town up to the public pretty soon and he loves that course, Its right outside of Denver I'll get some more details on that.
I fear not the man who has practiced 10,000 kicks once, but I fear the man who has practiced one kick 10,000 times.

If you are seriously planning on being near northern denver, Mike, I strongly suggest you hit up Ghost Town. I can get you directions and a contact # if you think you'll go. You need to call him first. $3/rd. $5/all day. It's nestled between Idaho Springs and Central City. Love this tourney/course. 5000-B(ees).
No....where've you been?

Isn't there a course somewhere near Leadville? I played with a guy named Shawn at the Gentlemen's Club Challenge, and he owns a bar there named Rosie's, (I think that was the name)

Yes, I heard it is installed and playable. Not nearly as tough as the tunnel shots before, but still a fun course. Or so they say...

i've got a couple goodies for you. Sakuna Pines in Black Forest is where i play most. it's in a tight forest with some good elevation. Pueblo city park is beautiful. Beaver Ranch in Conifer is a good mountain course. I've heard good things about Leadville, Ft. Collins' courses, sudance or sunset close to Ft. Collins. western CO is said to have nice ones as well.

I'd rate Edora 4 out of 10. There's nothing special about the course, mostly flat and wide open.

Is Birds Nest in Arvada better? Heard the grass was grown over there. Already played Johnny Roberts. Probably staying in Ft. Collins Saturday and Sunday night, so that seemed convenient.

Why would you go to CO to play city courses? Go to the mountains, Vail, Breckinridge, etc. Many of the ski resorts have courses. I know at Vail you take the Gondola to the top to play the course.
