Pros: Great mix of uphill, downhill, technical and easy shots on both blue and white tees.

Beautiful backdrops on most holes.

Can be a very strenuous course if you are playing quickly or generally out of shape.

Mid day during the week is a great time to play.
Cons: The wind can be your greatest obstacle some days and you don't even know it. The tee box is shrouded by the wind but as soon as you release the disc and pass the wind break you can see your disc get flipped.

A lot of folks in large groups taking their time on this course, lagging to smoke, drink or gab in general. Most of the trash on this course is a by product of said actives.

Dogs are all over this course with their waste quite evident.

This course will chew up baseline plastic.

Holes 1, 3 and 13 can get quite backed up. A lot of folks park up top and jump in on 3 and 13.
Other Thoughts: I played this course at least 25+ times while i was in town on business. If I was still there I would try to play everyday. I had some good days with some bad ones, each teaching a lot about the game.

Pros: Scenery is first rate!! Very nice layout with all kinds of shots...love the #4 and #10 hole. Very long downhill shot that you can watch your disc soar forever!! Very challenging with lots of hills for a great hike. Will definately play this course again!
Cons: Dirt tees which were slightly muddy after rain the night before. Need a map if playing for the first time due to vandalism of the markers. Concrete or solid tee boxes and repair the marker and my rating would be a 5+
Other Thoughts: A must play if you are even close to this course. Played on a Monday morning/afternoon and there were a few groups playing...might be busy on the weekend or evenings. I played back to back rounds and it was definately a workout so be prepared.

Pros: Has everything but water. Tight shots, open shots, uphill, down hill... super sick course!
Cons: Dirt tee pads sometimes muddy, caution. parking at the 1st or second parking lot is recommended, do not park on the road, you might get a ticket.
Other Thoughts: US National Forest Land, keep it clean. Please pack out what you pack in... i.e. beer cans and pop bottles

Pros: Million dollar views of the Missoula Valley and some long way down the hill shots. Truly an experience to play. Long and challenging.
Cons: Can be very crowded on nice spring days. Bring water.
Other Thoughts: Fire danger in July & August (usually) and icy slippery pins in February

Pros: Great variety of holes from bombers that go on forever to technical tree-lined testers. Wonderful views from many tee boxes. Excellent aerobic workout if you want it to be. At least a couple of signature holes - #4 & #10 stick in your memory with their huge downhill tosses that you can see all the way to the basket (or gully in the case of #4).
Cons: Difficult to find hole #1, many locals start at #10, #12, or #13. While tee boxes are well marked, they aren't always easy to find. Lung busting climbs if you aren't used to exercise at altitude. Several holes (#3, #9, #13) are disc eaters, use spotters if possible.
Other Thoughts: A great course, but if you are just visiting, find a local to help you around the course and spot for long, blind, downhill shots. This course gets a lot of play, so finding a friendly local is easy. Hole diagrams at tee boxes are helpful, but often vandalized. Great course that would be world class with better tee pads and signage.
