Pros: -Very nice new looking baskets that are blue and pretty easy to see
-Lots of elevation change (all of the holes have either up or downhill on them)
-There is something exhilarating about throwing your disc straight down a ski run
-Trash cans on several of the holes
-Signs pointing you between the holes when you have walk to them (for a seasonal course the flow is pretty easy to follow)
-Don't have to ride the lift up to the course or pay anything which is nice for a ski resort course
Cons: -This course design shows a total lack of creativity (The first six holes are basically straight up hill shots and then the last three holes shoot straight down hill)
-There are very few obstacles on any of the holes
-This course is terribly repetitive because of the basically two different types of holes
-Hole 7 throws right back over hole 6 which could lead to some safety issues (so watch your head when playing hole 6)
-The tee-signs say par and the hole number but no distance which is a bit of a shame
-It was a little hard to tell from without distance on the tee-signs but many of the holes felt pretty short
-The tee-pads were rubber (which was nice) but they were laid down and lumpy and had railroad ties at the front and back of the tee-box which inhibited run-ups and drives a little bit
Other Thoughts: Its a shame that the design of this course was so uncreative, ski areas have what should be great terrain for a disc golf course but the terrain here was used in boring and unimaginative ways. This course could have had potential but instead it is not worth stopping at unless you are in the area and itching for a round of disc golf.
