Pros: Awesome design and a true representation of mountain golf. Holes from 175 ft to 550. Plays evenly to right and left handed players. Contains Open (Mowed ski runs) and wooded holes. Equal distribution of uphill and downhill holes. Located at a mid mountain area, you are away from the base area crowds and unlike other courses on Ski Mountains you dont have to payto ride a lift.
Steamboat is a super chill town on the West slope of the Rockies guaranteeing ridiculous views and sunsets that will amaze you.
Frequent sightings of Black Bear, Moose, Fox and Elk are common - help the course out and give right of way to them. The future of this magnificent place is contingent upon a good relationship with the players and the wildlife and the mountain - Respect them all and PACK IT OUT.
For information on Steamboat Disc Golf, Check out the Steamboat Area Disc League at Steamboatdisc.com
They are cool and they are the ones that make it all happen. All baskets were supplied by the club and all course design and construction was completed by the club.
Cons: It took long enough for Steamboat Ski and Resort Corp to let Steamboat Area Disc League build a World Class Course. Its about time SSRC.
Other Thoughts: Steamboat Area Disc League is making huge headway with the Mountain. Check out PDGA's "Adventure Course" in 2009 Guidebook....FRONT PAGE
Hook with a local - there all cool and super helpful!

Pros: EXERTING! Thunderhead course will work you ! Especially if you aren't acclimated. I lived in Steamboat for a few years and played this course on a regular. BRING WATER YES! Many of the holes are open ski runs. Its a good 50% downhill (first half) and 50% uphill (second half)
This is Mt Golfing at its BEST.
If your looking for a 2-3 hour hike/golf this is the course for you!


Dirt Tees yes, with good reason, its a ski mountain and needs no more concrete poured on it.
Cons: Short season, but beggars cannot be choosers.
The rough is ROUGH, littered with bushes and trees.
Steamboat is open to Mt. Bikers during the summer so be weary of downhill rippers while crossing cat tracks.
Other Thoughts: PACK IT IN PACK IT OUT!!!

Drinking and Smoking is legit as long as your legit. This is a very big, lush mountain. Please help keep it that way! The locals do!

There are no plaques other then the sign to the trail. However the course is clearly marked from Tee to Tee.
I learned how to play at this course and cannot thank it enough!!
Peace

Pros: Absolutely stunning scenery of a ski resort all around it, the town below and mountains off in the distance. Well designed, testing everything you got. Technical and demanding, fun hill shots. Free, no need to pay to 'ride-up' or anything. Was a cool 65 F in the SUMMER.
Cons: Not very well marked, the air can make you dizzy, dirt tees.
Other Thoughts: Bring water, be ready to be tired afterwards, take breaks, stay on the fairway on the big downhill shots.
