Default I need your Help!! Disc course ideas!

I have been approached to help redesign a disc golf course on a ski resort! i have a lot of ideas but was only given until tomorrow to come up with a basic plan/idea on where to head. any pictures, stats, info that you all have readily available would be great! thank you so much. we are hoping to make this a great ski resort course. right now its a pitch and putt with a few longer holes. it doesn't utilize the space very well and there are some safety issues. i want to put in tee pads. maybe a framed box with crushed gravel and a fly 18 mat? i don't want anything too permanent. i look forward to your ideas/ thoughts/ pictures! thank you guys!

Utilise those hills. Long downhills, short uphills and a few following the conture with the slope off left or right.
Thats about all I got without seeing what you have to work with.
Good luck with your project.

Didnt know where the woods were clear enough to have hole in them so i avoided them except for pin positions. I am not by any means a course designer, but this is what i came up with for an 18 hole course.

Black is pad, Red is pin, Blue is fairway

Hole 1 - 281ft par 3
Hole 2 - 330ft par 3
Hole 3 - 156ft par 3
Hole 4 - 212ft par 3
Hole 5 - 302ft par 3
Hole 6 - 183ft par 3
Hole 7 - 285ft par 3
Hole 8 - 148ft par 3
Hole 9 - 165ft par 3
Hole 10 - 335ft par 3
Hole 11 - 1,006ft par 5
Hole 12 - 476ft par 4
Hole 13 - 271ft par 3
Hole 14 - 333ft par 3
Hole 15 - 889ft par 4
Hole 16 - 281ft par 3
Hole 17 - 317ft par 3
Hole 18 - 359ft par 3

Total - 6,329ft par 58

If you can make use of the woods, say inbetween a couple slopes, I would recommend doing so. The Nemacolin resort in PA has a seasonal course. Two of the best holes, IMO, play inbetween the slopes. As has been said, it's hard to tell what the foliage & undergrowth are like, but if possible, having some wooded holes mixed in with the big bombers could make it a lot more interesting.

Here's the link. Holes #4 & #5 are the ones that I'm talking about. And this is by no means a destination ski course... It's just the only course of this type that I've played.

And it's not a great map, but here's one that I drew up after I played the course since their map wasn't really accurate.



I hope that the Massanutten re-design works out nicely... The course is already on my wish list since it's only a couple hours away from home.
