Pros: Fantastic scenery
Great elevation changes
Some fantastic LONG downhill holes
High elevation makes it playable even on HOT summer days down in the valley
FREE - even at the Grand Targhee Resort

Cons: Signage could be a little better, especially on how to find the next tee from the previous basket.
Watch each other's tosses, especially on blind tees, discs can be easily eaten by evergreen trees and understory foliage between ski runs.
Other Thoughts: We love to play this course at least a couple of times a year.

You can rent discs at the resort (It's about as expensive to "rent" discs as to buy them)

Great Mountain Course

-Great elevation change
-Variety of hole distance
-Technical shots with many trees and mountain bikers to avoid
Cons: Easy to lose discs - The further you head into the northwest aspects the shrubbery/grass/plants increase in height. Be sure to keep an eye on where your disc lands.
Busy - Played on the 5th of July during Widespread Panic Music Festival. There were hoards of people, 6+ people to a group and families mixed in.
Other Thoughts: Hole 4 slopes off to the left and the foliage increases, very easy to hook or fade WAY downhill.
The elevation change and size of the course may have some players quitting early. Make sure to walk 80-100 yards up hill from hole 2 to find the tee box for hole 3. Hole 11 is an awesome downhill throw, break out the big guns for this 553 ft hole.

Pros: this course is very scenic set on the Targhee ski resort. The resort area is nice and open year round for food, drink, or disc sale. If you go to the lodging check in they will give you a full page color map of the course which probably wont need but it is nice to have. As far as the course plays its another one of those tough par 3 courses with many holes that i would rate par 3.5. great use of elevation and trees. also very easy to follow with a very logical flow.
Cons: if your not in the best shape this couse can get you being a mountain course there is a lot of up and down and its set at above 8000' where the air is much thinner and it's easier to lose your breath
Other Thoughts: beautiful area with the Grand Tetons in on the drive and yellowstone national park just a few miles away

Other Thoughts: Last played the course in 05 or 06, but just unbelievable, go play it.

Pros: Mountain Golf, resort supported course with caring attitude. No charge to play course. Well designed 18 hole course that you won't make you feel like you've given birth to a full grown cow once your done playing it. Trap bar and grill at hole one, a great place to relax after your round.
Cons: Isolated from normal walks of life, resort closes down early, depending on how many visitors (6 to 9 pm). No dogs allowed. Only place to get food is the Trap bar and grill, pricey.
Other Thoughts: This course is a true mountain course that plays at 8,000 + ft altitude. Dirt Teepads, wear sturdy shoes. The course plays with the technical aspect in mind, not a lot of long drives to deal with. Still you need to be spot on with your drives 75% of the time or you will regret it! Advanced and pro players will be under par, A top pro player will be in the double digits if he's playing well. A recreational player will be even to over par, and everyone will love the experience since the course doesnt wear you out like some mountain courses can. The drive from the town of Driggs, ID is about 20 minutes, which is the closest place to get gas, food, etc. Go up prepared with what you think you need, the resort is very limited to what they offer.
