Disc Golf in Greenwood Village
RE-PRINT, Views on the Village, 2013
[In early 2013] Village Greens Park in Greenwood Village underwent an extensive renovation with expanded recreational activities that include a new 18-hole disc golf course and a extensive mountain bike course. Like all things done in Greenwood Village, these projects were well planned and developed. The disc golf course - which aligns with the mountain bike course running along the Cherry Creek Dam - is in its infancy stages, having opened in spring of 2013. However, it is already getting plenty of use and positive reviews from Village residents. The course is "mostly wide open,"according to the DG Course Review website, and it will take a couple seasons for the trees and hazards to grown in. This leads for pretty easy access on approach to most holes. That may not impress the disc golf aficionados, but for players just looking for some recreation and nice challenge on their walk, the course plays fine. Since, discovering the course on a family bike ride a month or so ago, I've played several times with a top score of 3-over-par. My 11-year-old son and his friends, however, are practically obsessed with the course - primarily because of its proximity - and they have logged several 36-hole rounds.
