Mountain Man's goal is not to make it harder but we may need to add more elevation with new holes*. MM plans to do some thinning along much of the fairway borders so players aren't so stymied when kicking off the fairways and have a puncher's chance to execute recovery shots versus just pitching out. Stroke average could go down but fun factor increase.

* result of future ideas that may involve shifting some holes from other courses

I have spent 7 disc golf Weekends near Pittsburgh, and Deer Lakes and Moraine are also in my top 5 courses....these are hilly and difficult courses but nothing like North Boundary....playing both of those courses are about equal to one round at NB in terms of the effort it takes...

Crazy elevation gain and loss on the majority of holes...hole #3, #7 and #11 are about as steep uphill as it gets, and there are multiple holes that you must throw over and traverse up and down over huge ravines on flatter holes...

Plus it is a long....really long course...with very few flat lies...

Great design but a brutal workout....not for the casual golfer...
NoBo is no damn joke.

Bucksnort in CO is pertty gnarly. As mentioned, Winter Park does some stuff.

I played a semi-private course in British Columbia...Fallow Ridge. That course had some holes that were basically straight up and straight down. Nothing too long, but dead up some BC mountainsides. Also, Rose Hill ouside Kamloops...there were some holes that if you went left, sayonara. They roped off partially down the hill for tournaments (from what i was told) because climbing down was just that scary.

It will be a little harder to see the baskets when the black DD portables are installed, assuming we get BH baskets soon. I think just the changes in elevation are what makes The Bear so tough. It's built a bit like a roller coaster in places.

Haha yup, did you check out Copper Ridge just outside Kamloops? I really like that one. I played with Ken up in fallow yup he's got one steep ass hill. He also has the nastiest hanging tonal I've had to wrangle, damn it's high and on a hill.

Different hole I threaded a gap through the trees right down the middle up high going downhill and they were "don't throw that way!"

And I'm all "why not?"

"Well that's nasty down there!"

Anyhow threw blind, on their advice of where the pin was, down my route got a birdie and they were like "hmmm hadn't thought of that"

Haha 30' is a huge gap for us island boys.

Fallow was a little rough but that's nothing like the "Big Stupid Guy" on Cortes, granted it's not as steep as Fallow for grade, but you hike and play uphill for 2.5+ hrs and then stop, enjoy the view and play it downhill.

Yep, played Copper Ridge. Was quite fun.

Some of those tonals at Fallow were fun, but I assume you're talking about that small LP tank about 20' off the ground. That was pretty brutal. I met a few people at the course in Kelowna and then played a league night with them. Was super fun.

I ran a C Tier at Lake Marshall yesterday and MPO played the longest, most difficult course in Virginia to date. It was a setup designed for a potential top pro event that didn't happen. Last 3 holes of Lair and the 15 holes of Lions that are completed. Almost 12000 feet, par 73- SSA slightly over 75.

This will be the last of the hybrid events at the Lake because The Lions is going to be done by fall. As the TD that makes me very happy .
