Default Mountain Lake DGC Closing

Rumor has it that the course at Mountain Lake Resort is closing this summer and turning it into a skeet shooting range. I'd advise anyone to go play it now before it's too late.

Glad I got to play a round there a last time I drove down to FL. Beautiful course, even if you have to walk about a mile up the hill to get to the 1st tee.

Why not have a dual purpose disc golf course and skeet shooting range? What could go wrong?

Last time I played mountain Lake they were having a wedding in front of the old clubhouse. The resort folks just asked us not to play the back until they were done so we would not be in the photos. No problem. We just went back to hole 2 and kept playing. By the time we got back around to 9 the wedding was over and we were good to finish the round.
