Pros: Stunning views of the Sangre de Cristo mountains! Great DiscCatcher baskets. Very long, with a bit of elevation. Unique setting on a ball golf course. Did I mention the view?
Cons: Wind-prone, little challenge despite it's namesake. Lack of signage and designated tee pads. We just played it using the ball golf tees, and it made things extremely long.
Other Thoughts: This really isn't a bad little course. The well-mowed fairways are perfectly suitable to creating your own tee-pads if the layout proves too long.

Its really about the location. Crestone is a stunningly beautiful area. Ample hot-springs in the area, and close to the Great Sand Dunes. The North Crestone Campground is a fantastic place to spend the night, just above the town, along a large fishable creek. $7 dollars a night with potable water and fire rings. Be prepared to hang your food high in a tree before you sleep. There is a resident bear who will break into your vehicle if it contains any food.

Pros: You have great views of the mountains that are very steep. It is great for long shots and walking around a 'real' golf course. It is close to a bunch of natural hot springs that you can visit. Check out Valley View its awesome!
Cons: The course had a very surreal feeling as we walked around. The golf course it is built on/around is voted on yearly by the community whether it will be maintained or not. I talked with a local who agreed with me that the golf ball course component was pretty much in disrepair. It would need more money to fix the damaged grasses then to lay all new material. This makes the course feel like it is a ghost town.

Pros: If you want to practice your long drives or rollers these holes are pretty much hazard free and long nice open space. Good air. Pretty views.
Cons: Windy in spring time. Lots of geese. Your arm might just get tired.
Other Thoughts: Runs along side of the ball golf course. Yet play is free for disc golfers. Friendly support at the pizza shack/club house which seems to be staffed most of the time.
