Pros: Silver Mountain was a nice stop just over the bridge into the U.P. in an area without too many DG options. There are a variety of shots and a lot of elevation in play. There are a number of wooded uphill shots, and a 600' downhill bomber that you'd expect from any course on a ski hill. The course is very scenic and a good hike.
Finding and navigating the course was generally easy, with a slight mistake on hole 8. We threw to the more visible C basket and took some time to realize our error.
The view of the lake from 15's basket area is spectacular!
Cons: Uneven, rocky and rutty natural pads made accuracy difficult on the uphill holes, as well as a few others.
Hole 3 was not as shown on the map, just an extremely short throw to a basket in a field. This was confusing and disappointing.
There was a lot of trash and litter on the course. The one trash can we saw had been dumped out and left on its side.
Other Thoughts: Scenic vistas and challenging elevation play make Silver Mountain worth the hike to stop there once. Ankle twister pads and tiny bloodsuckers make it unlikely that we'll be back for a second round.

Pros: Very challenging. The first 9 are great. There was only one other group when I was up there. The signs on the holes are real nice, pretty clear. Pro and am tees marked in red or blue tree stumps. Two sweet long holes, real epic. Beautiful view.
Cons: Real buggy. Bugs spray doesn't even effect these mutant mosquitos. Needs to be maintained. Real high grass; so it's real easy to loose a disc. Poison ivy on some holes, signs posted to let you know. The back 9 aren't as good as the first. can be a little hard to navigate. There's a couple blind holes that you'd need a look out for or you're gonna loose a disc. No restrooms. No fountains.
Other Thoughts: If you're in the tip of the mitten or going to the U.P. I'd check it out... but I wouldn't go out of my way for it inless they ran a lawn mower through there.
