Pros: You get to take a chair lift up the mountain to play this course, then the alpine slide back down. The views are incredible, the difficulty is tough and there are some very technical holes. It's a bit of a hike but nothing too strenuous. The course is beautiful and not very many people out there. Everything is very well marked and maintained.
Cons: The only thing that could make this course better is the layout (a lot of the holes are very spread out that don't need to be) and maybe if there were some water (rivers or ponds) it would top it off but not much bad to say about it.
Other Thoughts: I would drive back out to winter park to play this course again. Beautiful mountain course with amazing views.

Funnest course in Colorado
Pros: Views, great course layout, with challenging holes and great variety. After a very fun round of golf, you get to ride the Alpine Slide back down the mountain.
Very fun in many ways.
Cons: Maps weren't available, which made following the course harder than it could have been.
One tee placement was in a very dangerous position in relation to an adjacent, uphill hole, which would be a problem if there were many people playing at once. There could be injuries. Other than that, a super fun disc golf experience.
Other Thoughts: Mountain courses never seem to have great teepads.

Take another look
Pros: This course if for those seeking a challenge, not for the casual player unless you can handle a big score. Most of the tee length's on this site are NOT correct (may be junior tees). This course is WAY longer. Also, staff was very friendly and helpful.
-You will throw every shot in your bag. Lots of tunnel shots, plenty of enormous trees and a lot of forced ani/forehand for righty's
-Every hole is different
Cons: -Rough terrain but you should be expecting it anyway. Bring good shoes/boots and plenty of water
-Waiting in line for the lift on a busy day but who really cares, you won't once you start playing
-A little tough to navigate, but not too bad.
Other Thoughts: Take your time playing this course. Walk up and get a look at the pin and the obstacles. For most, this course is really about placing your drives, not just crushing them. You're playing for 3 on most holes, but there are plenty of birdie opps if you play smart.

Pros: Plays across the ski runs so there is always an elevation change on every hole. Throwing from way up high down to the hole and watching your disk fly for what seems like forever is a great sight. The views are amazing looking over the mountains. Several of the holes run through tight paths in the trees which require very straight throws. The slide down at the end of the round is also an added bonus.
Cons: The last 2 holes are not complete yet and they just dump you at the end of 16 and you have to know where your at to be able to make it back to the slide down. Several of the holes do not have any tee box marking or direction of where you need to throw and when you cant see the hole that is a problem.

Winter Park Resort
Pros: This course amazed me with its incredible vistas and expansive views of the Rocky Mountains. On the first hole, I felt the unbelievable thrill of driving a disc from literally the top of a mountain, down it's slopes. I found myself throwing more than twice as far as on flat ground back home in Texas. This course includes open holes, very tight holes, and everything in between. The layout of the holes offers diversity, challenge, and interest. All holes are well marked and an accurate course map makes navigating between and on holes simple. This is a beautiful and fun course.
Cons: Although unavoidable, winds blowing over the mountains can decrease precision on long drives. Some of the longer holes seemed to offer little to no chance at par.
Other Thoughts: Allow two to three hours to play this long course. It includes one hole over 1300 feet long, requiring many long drives to reach the hole.
