Wow! I think you are way off base about the course conditions. Jackson Hole is massive Western 3000 acre Ski Resort, not a 135 acre Ski hill. Plus the disc golf is free because you don't have to buy a lift ticket to play.

Hey man, sorry if I pushed a button- it was completely unintentional.

That said, my comment was one of means, so thank you for making my point for me. We are a molehill with a handful of employees (more people answer the phones at JH than work at Magic total) and we can still manage to get out there with brush cutters etc... What I was trying to get at is that its likely someone simply isnt aware that one of their amenities could use a little more love than theyre getting- Its nothing for a place like that to allocate a few guys for a couple days once a month. I was thinking that JH is way too kick ass of a resort to leave their course growing wild, but maybe thats the cool thing out there, I dont know and maybe Im wrong on all counts- its entirely possible haha

Have a nice day and enjoy the mountain this winter, shes a beaut for sure!

At that elevation? Can't throw anything because I went to the hospital for shortness of breath.

If you insist, Explorer

Sorry for being grumpy. I am not into the mountains in the winter! I hate the snow and cold and the endless grayness. I hope to never experience a cold, snowy winter ever again. As long as I stay in So Cal, I can achieve this life goal!

I have an affinity for rugged Western disc golf courses and ski resorts (in the summer). I seek them out whenever possible. Jackson Hole has a balance between natural mountain beauty and the man-made attractions that strip all the nature away. JH does more summer maintenance than a lot of other western mountain resorts.

While I love the west and I love the mountains. I also love Vermont. I had the opportunity to visit in 2016 and I can't wait to get back again next summer. Maybe I can stop by your course for a round? Appalachian beauty is a real thing and it is real different from the expansive Rocky Mountain vistas. Vermont is all green and beautiful and EVERYTHING is very neatly kept. The Rockies are wild, rugged and dusty. I thought Vermont was one of the most beautiful places on Earth (until I visited Sugaree).

No matter where it is, I love mountain golf!
