Pros: First, thanks for the great reviews, and hopefully more will come. 10-3@CB is really an amazing course, and this is a great way to get the word out. If you're in the neighborhood, this is a must play course!
A few tips for the newcomer. Yes, this is a mountain course. It is big, it's got some tough holes, and the vegetation can be deep and dense in mid summer. Spring and fall are the best times, but the best advice is to use only brightly colored discs. Blaze orange works best. And really, really watch your shots. Group play actually helps, as long as everyone is watching shots. Ten eyes are better than two when you're searching the deep stuff.
Also, there is a great slideshow of the course on Youtube. Just search for "Mt. Crested Butte disc golf course" Kudos to whoever posted that, and don't let the difficulties deter you from checking out 10-3@CB. It truly is one of the best courses you'll ever tackle.
Cons: Deep vegetation mid summer on several holes, mainly the back nine. (Lower mountain} Be sure to have your name and number written on all your discs, Lots are found in the fall, and most local players are good about trying to return them. If you are renting discs, ask for the brightest colors they have, and don't worry, rental discs that are found are usually returned to the ticket office. Be aware that mountain bike trail crossings occur between #1 & #2, #12 & #13, #14 & #15, and on the fairway of #17. Conflicts are rare in these spots, but you'll want to give the bikes right of way.
Other Thoughts: We're also pretty excited to announce that a new "short" course is now open and getting great reaction from the players. It is now nine holes, out and back, at the top of the Red Lady Express lift, With any luck, it'll be eighteen holes next summer! Come check it out!

Pros: Beautiful Scenery, a great layout, almost no uphill holes, good direction to the next tee, a nice variety of forehand and backhand holes, good level tees (for the most part). Thank you for completing all 18 holes.
Cons: Thick rough to get lost in and not in my home state.
Other Thoughts: This was one of the first reasons I looked at Crested Butte as a vacation destination. A beautiful area and I was not disappointed in the course.

Crested Butte's Mountain Course
Pros: What an awesome course with some of the best scenery available. Huge shots into the trees, some diffucult holes, lots of terrain variety. Great pin placement, some holes 800+ feet.
Cons: Be ready for the mountains! The course takes a good 2-3 hours to play. Basically, you are hiking down the ski mountain. Lost lots of disks on this course.
Other Thoughts: Very happy to see Chris Brown put together such a world class course. Only con..you have to pay for the lift ride up, unless you want to hike.
