In a word, AMAZING!

Pros: Beautiful mountain scenery, especially with the fall colors that were starting to fill during my late-September round.
The "Elevation 11,000 feet" sign close to Hole #1 is not something I had seen on a disc golf course prior to this round. I did not have any trouble breathing, but the air is different up there.
While this may be rather obvious, the elevation offered here at Brian Head is a lot of fun while it tests your skills throughout the course. There are extreme uphill and downhill holes.
The map/scorecard serves as an excellent course guide if needed.
I'd like to pick a "signature" hole, but there are just too many. This course was easily one of my most unique/fun/exciting disc golf experiences to date and I quickly added it to my list of favorites.
Cons: Some of the teepads were uneven. Concrete or flypads would be nice, but I understand that may not be feasible because of the other activities that share the land.
Some of the pictures on the tee signs were missing. It appears they had blown away.
Watch out for the cowpies. During my ride on the ski lift, I saw a herd of cows wandering on the course. They left many gifts. ;)
Other Thoughts: All of the aforementioned cons were completely overshadowed by the pros here at Brian Head.
Bring plenty of water/snacks, especially if you are not accustomed to playing disc golf at 11,000 feet. You will not have an opportunity to get back to the parking lot until the end of your round.
I highly recommend using a good pair of hiking boots or shoes.
The $9 lift ticket was worth every penny.
This course will chew up DX or similar plastic in a hurry with the rough terrain.
I'm not sure I can accurately describe the beauty and uniqueness of Brian Head Disc Golf course. I already have been recommending this course to anyone that has an opportunity to play it. If you are on the fence about playing here, please get off and make some plans to have fun here at Brian Head!
