Dry Creek Parkway
I just played this course today, and I had a great time; I also closed out with two 2's on 17 and 18 including a near skip ace on 17 where it bounced up and hit the basket. I'm rating it a little lower (from a critic's point of view) compared to how much I enjoyed the course. A couple drawbacks for a first timer (especially) is that the course is so compact that you occasionally end up aiming at the wrong pins. This is something that you can learn the 2nd time around, but navigation was a bit tricky the 1st time. In general I like how the course is laid out, but it still needs a bit of polish, e.g., hole diagrams, signs pointing you to the next tee, all of the tees paved (some are currently). Maybe this one doesn't have to be like other "nice" courses with these amenities, though, because I really enjoyed playing this compact casual, yet challenging, course. And though I didn't personally get any discs wet, the water could be a major factor.
This is a challenging course. How challenging can depend on the weather and each pin location. Each Hole has 3 pin placements for the most part. The greenway now runs through Dry Creek Parkway so watch out for joggers/walkers, bicyclists, and people walking dogs as many don't realize the course is there. All holes are par 3, except hole 6 which is a par 4. There are many opportunities to go OB on just about every hole as the Green Way and other nearby roads and parking lots, Dry Creek and the disc hungry pond on hole 15 are all considered OB as is crossing Dry Creek if the tee and pin are on the same side of the creek (League Rules). This 18 hole course is squeezed into a pretty tight area, so staying on each hole’s fairway can be tricky especially when the wind is blowing and it usually is! The temporary tee pad for hole 12 is dirt and is temporarily marked with flags. Walk West across the creek on the greenway and turn immediately to your right, or North after crossing the creek. The pin is usually located on the East side of the creek either in the trees or in the open area near the South fence near Hwy 30. This is one of the best courses around.
This has to be my favorite course.The course is a technical course due to all the o.b.The creek is a brutal enemy in the spring time after rain,and the pond on 15 is the devil who eats discs for a snack.Bring the "A" game when you hit this course,you will need it.
Very solid course. Has some distance to make par challenging. Makes good use of the creek and trees to mix up the shot selection.
