Worth The Drive
Pros: This course is set up on 15 to 20 acres just outside Victor, MT, about 45 minutes south of Missoula. It is a nicely quirky mature course that is set up by Nick, the owner/designer, with the help of other seasoned local disc golfers. This course is a labor of love and it shows. Set in woods of varying density with regular natural and manmade creeks it is a nice place to get out and play.
The pins are a VERY eclectic mix. There are 3 tones, 2 objects, and 17 baskets varying from good portables to repaired/refurbished Mach 3s to some of the most interesting, innovative, and functional homemade designs I have ever seen.
While mostly flat it makes good use of a hillside for elevation changes, especially with the 4 added holes on the 22 hole layout. There are obvious fairways on most holes but a couple require more threading or unusual lines.
Cons: While well worn in, there have been some changes made and the lack of signs can make it hard to follow on occasion. Holes are currently not numbered for the most part but that is supposed to change shortly.
Tees are natural and well maintained for the most part but pads of some sort would be nice and I imagine will happen eventually. that said, there were only two holes I threw from the side of the tee.
No drinking water or bathrooms on site but probably addressed for tournaments.
Other Thoughts: This is a really cool course and I am very glad I made the drive down to play it. You can see how it has been improved over the years and I expect that will continue. Nick was very personable and welcoming, please pay the very minimal requested donation and be respectful so that will continue to be the case.
This is a great course to play early in the year, was in good shape despite recent rains and with Pattee closed and Blue Mtn busy this is a nice alternative. I look forward to playing this one again and taking my friends.
