Pros: Very well thought out and designed for an alpine course
Very intuitive layout and flow
Well marked tees
Rubber tee pads
17 of 18 of the baskets are visible from tees
Well thought out throws are rewarded with nice open fairways
Beautiful scenery
Small crowds
Excellent exercise
Opportunity to really launch some discs :)
Cons: A couple of holes could have a "pointer" to next tee to save a couple of minutes of looking on the few tees that are not super intuitive
If you aren't strategic in throw strength, velocity or line (or if the wind gusts mid flight) you could lose a disc if you don't have a spotter
Other Thoughts: I loved playing this course...I have never played a course like this...I played with a friend so we spotted each other on the one blind hole and a few other holes that seemed like potential "lost disc" holes
The maps aren't super accurate but way worth grabbing because they give you a general idea on the flow and that comes handy a couple of times
We didn't lose any discs and found two (fortunantely one had a name and number and we could get it to it's thankful owner)
We played at 10:30 (they opened the lift early--it usually opens at 11) and by the time we hit hole 16 the wind was really play early...
I would highly recommend taking the time and spending the money to the lift ticket is good all day, so you can head back up and have a meal at the lodge...
