Can be hard to find discs IF you have an errant shot. Great length variety and some neat elevations!

Fun course with nice elevation change. The distance variation is about perfect. Most shots wide open with multiple lines. Not many obstacles to navigate.

From what I heard, my brother and I simply picked the wrong day to play at Birds Nest. Apparently, the person who regularly mows the grass couldn't do so because his mower was not working so the grass was very tall and made the round a virtual disc hunt on every drive. It was very windy (15-25 mph) during this particular day as well to compound the disc hunting problem. I say all this because I need a nice day (when the course is mowed) to properly critique Bird's Nest. Honestly, I really enjoye ...

Great course, open throws and a few tree crowded throws for technical throws. Windy on the first few throws where the elevation is a little higher but in the plains its not so bad. tall grass in the summer months can be a bummer but in the winter its easy to find your discs. great set up overall.

Now this course is a fairly wide open course but they did a great job with the space they were provided. It's right by the foothills so there's some pretty cool views of the mountains. It's a pretty lenghty course not many trees and some tall grass. It's 24 holes and mostly flat, aside from hole 1 and like 18 and 19. If you like courses that are just disc golf courses and not in parks this one is nice and quiet

Big arm course. Lot's a long, open holes. Best to play in the early spring or late fall. It get's pretty over grown in the summer time, and it can be extremely hot since there are virtually no shaded areas. It can be a bit tricky to follow so it's best to play with someone who knows the course.

A fun course...close to home and baskets moved periodically for extra challenge. A TIP! Use your camera phone to take a pic of course maps on unfamiliar courses so you don't hold up play looking for the next tee!

Would really like to give this course a better review because it truly does have potential. Fun shots, a possible 26 holes, good baskets, big pads on every hole I played, great views & very quiet. On the down swing it is massively over grown. Holes 19 - 26 are unplayable. The grass is nearly waste high with hidden cacti & yucca plants making it dangerous to attempt. Plus unless you have played there before it can be hard to find the next tee pad. Once upon a time they had signs that clearly had ...

Long and open. Fun for long throwers. Sometimes windy, and by late summer the grass can get a little long. All in all a well-kept course with a beautiful view of the Rocky Mountains.

Good location, although its a little dusty out there its got some challenging shots and not too many are chip shots, defiantly a challenging course

Always windy--NEVER busy. Beautiful backdrop on most holes. Good luck finding your disc in the long stuff. They rarely mow down the tall grass on most holes. Keep a good eye on your disc or have someone spot it for you. Great course!

Long course with lots of challenging foliage to lose a disc within. The course layout is funky, and the hole lengths and locations are fun to play. Scenery is gorgeous with the mountains behind the sage brush and cactus of the course itself.

One of the better & more challenging courses in Denver, and yes I'm aware that's not saying much as Denver courses as a whole are pretty 'meh'. But the layout is creative with the land, some elevation change, few guarded baskets, mostly long hyzer shots but there's a few mixins out there. It can get crazy overgrown in the early-mid summer and flooded if it's been rainy, so watch your discs.

Great open place to play just hard to find disc ever now and again. But love the layout

One of the better courses you can play in the Denver metro area. 3 downhill holes, 1-2 uphill, the rest are fairly flat. More than half the holes have multiple pin locations and are rotated a few times per year. Look for OB areas designated by rock outlines. There are several tunnel shots through the trees and some that require big sky turnovers or hyzers. There are some long bomber holes and some shorter more technical shots. On 18 throw a turn over putter or mid range for RHBH. Some ...

We were here in March, 2013. Conditions were windy, in the 50's and no snow. Tee boxes were very hard to find at times (most were only piles of rocks), we accidentally skipped one hole, and the trails were sometimes hard to see perhaps because of the season. There are a few trees and a couple swamps. There are quite a few longer holes which made it more fun. I think it would have been much better in the summer!

Assets - Wide open course that plays big and caters to players with bigger arms. Up and coming course that hosts a lot of tournaments. Intuitive course design makes it easy to navigate. Liabilities - Overgrown vegetation means you spend a lot of time looking for discs. Limited tree cover exposes you the elements, which is mainly the sun and heat. Cacti litter the course, particularly on the upper holes. Overall - This course is recommended for everyone but especially for those with longer ...

Hard to navigate, but cannot do much about it because of sign vandalism.. Fun holes, but mostly straight shots..
