Pros: SEE 2016 NOTE BELOW!
Beautiful Alpine setting. Some Big Air shots.
Great On-Course burgers if the St. Bernard is open.
(Tim's Stray Dog Cantina has longer hours though).
Cons: SEE NOTES BELOW.
-Losing fairway shots in the very long grass.
-Several fairways are nothing but undergrowth.
-Losing discs OB near the river.
-Baskets can be hard for casuals to get to.
-Hikes don't always reward the effort.
-#11 throws BLIND! into the the hiking/ horse trail.
-Short summer season. The course is at the base, (no chairlift ride). It's lame to limit play so much.
Other Thoughts: UPDATE 2016: THERE IS NOW A NEW OR MOSTLY NEW COURSE. THE DESIGNER SAYS YOU NEED TO PLAY IT WITH HIM TO BE ABLE TO FOLLOW IT. I WILL UPDATE THIS WHEN SIGNAGE IS UP.
UPDATE 2015: I HEAR CONSTRUCTION IS SLATED TO CLOSE COURSE THIS SEASON. CALL FOR STATUS BEFORE TRAVELING.
Having skied here for 10 years and played for five,I can say with certainty that this is a challenging place to build a good course. And TSV is not that big a summer draw. So far, it hasn't worked.
I hope that Taos Ski Valley and the New Mexico players rally around to get the one dedicated guy trying to do this alone some practical support. I suggested he might have fewer worthy and more playable holes at the base and add maybe 9 good challenging holes at the top of the chair. Yes, that would be unusual, but it might work. Stay tuned.

Taos Ski Valley DGC
Pros: Nice location in Taos Ski Valley - very dramatic scenery, good use of topography, nearby shelter/amenities, maps and directions provided at Taos Ski & Boot.
Cons: Tight intersecting holes at times, no long holes, unneccessary hole closures.
Other Thoughts: A pleasant course if you are in the Taos area. Ski Valley is about 40 minutes from Taos plaza. Check out Taos Cow in Arroyo Seco for food and ice cream on your way down.
