 Majestic VA Mtn Course

Pros: It provided for some amazing scenery that didn't disappoint as it is set on the melted grounds of this majestic VA mountain ski range. First glance made it look easy but they did a decent job taking advantage of the terrain. You'll throw up hills, across open terrain, through forests and down some extremely long and narrow passages.

The man made obstacles make this one a lot of fun as the ski lift cables hang over head, the snow machines block your drive, the boulders from the lift house trap your disc and fences will stop you from reaching the hole on the first shot if you don't throw hard enough.

They provide a course map and score card which is always a treat. You'll want to play all holes as par 3 if you play regularly...it's to easy as par 4.

You'll get to test your drive and precision shots on this course but it goes quick.
Cons: As you walk the course you realize they could have done a lot more with the terrain to make every hole memorable.
Other Thoughts: Nature is everywhere. Our discs landed right next to deer that didn't budge and we noticed a beaver running to the stream...extra novelty. It's probably the best course in the Stanley/Luray area and I would recommend checking it out if you're choosing between the Luray course...this one is worth the 30 minute drive.

Pros: Great Physical Challenge-Upslope, Downslope, Side-to-Side. Good mix of wooded and open holes.
Cons: Some difficulty locating tee pads if youre not a local. And even if you are, the course designers change it up every season.
Other Thoughts: What a great use of the ski slopes during the warm months! I heard the Guest Services Manager is responsible for setting up the course design each season and he certainly makes this course pleasing to both beginners and avid players. You've never had to factor in elevation change as much as you will here! I've played this course at least once a year for the past 3 years and each season, the couse designer has incorporated a new wrinkle into the layout (a pile of brush to throw over, an earthen mogul to throw around, a j-bar to throw through). Great fun.....
