Beautiful and challenging
Pros: Very beautiful course with fantastic views of mountain and desert scenery. This course isn't just about the huge elevation (although the downhill bombs were tons of fun!), but holes play up, down, and across the mountain. Each set of 9 holes begins and ends near the parking lot, so there are lots of ways to play the course. Well marked, especially for a course that is not permanent, we had no navigation issues (other than having trouble finding the 1st tee because we parked on top of it!). Rubber pads for tees were in good shape and well-leveled, made for fine places to throw from. Mostly free of nasty rough (except for the occasional thorn bush), so as long as a disc doesn't go off the side of the mountain, you shouldn't lose one. One of the most picturesque courses out there.
Cons: Hard to find too many negatives about this course, although there is not necessarily great variety in the holes, with lots of straight, long shots through mature evergreens.
Other Thoughts: Make sure to bring snacks and water, if you're not used to elevation this course will be a tough walk! Definitely worth the drive up into the mountains, this course is fun and beautiful. One of the best ski-hill courses I've played (and these are some of my favorite courses).

One of my favorites!
Pros: Absolutely beautiful scenery... one of my favorite scenic DG courses. It has amazing views of Mt. Baldy and the desert floor. The mountain air is so fresh and clean and the huge pines are awesome. The course is designed wonderfully throughout the ski-slope area and includes tons of elevation gain and loss. Including one 600+ foot bomb between two pines and down the schute (80+ feet elevation loss)... it's fun. Big bombs, technical shots, lots of opportunity for punishment... this course is awesome. And, the course returns to the parking lot after each 9 (27 holes), which lightens the load you have to carry (since you can refill your water and grab beers every 9). Extremely easy to navigate for a moutain course. The table mountain campground is on the edge of the course and is worth staying at.
Cons: None really. Black rubber pads... but it would be impossible to have permanent tee-pads on the ski slope.
Lots of uphill walking at high elevation... but they designed the course to switchback up the steeps, over a few holes, so it's not one straight shot up.
Other Thoughts: Rattle snakes!!! I've seen them there a few times. It's at 6500'+ so bring your beaten plastic. New discs will turn drastically... and on this course that could mean turning down a blackdiamond, resulting in a long walk. Use putters and midrange discs as drivers as they glide well in the thin air.
between hole13 and 14 there is a sacrifice spot where you can throw a disc off the mountain and it will fly for miles... literally.

Pros: absolutly beautiful views,fun course flowed very well.wooded yet little under brush except for the thorn bushes that had to be used to make jesus' crown.
Cons: its on a mountain,bring an oxygen tank.if you have a throw get away from you your disc could be gone for ever.I lost my favorite disc in the most herific thorn bushes ever.
Other Thoughts: dont think I would play it again,the elevation was to much for me and it wasnt that difficult except for the elevation and fear of lost discs.

Pros: Elevation and challenge on a great property. Beautiful ski area mountain top course within easy reach of the LA metro region. Dunipace/Bant design uses the hills and trees superbly. You will hike - so wear the proper footwear. Table Mountain Campground adjacent. Love it up here! Can be 10 to 15 degrees cooler than the flat land in the summer.
Cons: Closes in the winter. Tees could be improved.

Pros: Stunning views from atop of the mountain along many holes. Great use of elevation change and trees, as well as openness. Elevation change is not overdone, and there is a great variety of holes. Rubber tee pads are also very nice. Most fairways have been thinned out very nicely eliminating much of the brush.
Cons: A few poor pin placements with trees located VERY closely in front of the pad. Limits throwing styles from pin. First tee not marked very well... It is about 100 feet from the first sign going out away from the lodge back down the hill you came up, you tee off of the asphalt.
Other Thoughts: Very much worth the drive up in to the mountains for the view alone. But the course is very enjoyable.
