Pros: -Parking
-Course Flow
-Scenery: Breathtaking Elevation and views.
-Course conditions: Mown and maintained fairways.
-Unique elevation challenges due to layout on a ski slope.
-Hole 2: Elevated green, guarded by trees, with steps on hillside up to basket at end. Very nice.
-Hole 2a: Long hyzer out across a pretty meadow to pin guarded by trees on left.
-Hole 4: Short downhill shot to basket on a plateau, followed immediately by a penal dropoff. (Throw the putter, not the midrange.)
-Hole 5: The reason to play this course. 600 feet downhill, across the valley to the basked at the base of the next hill. You don't often get to see your driver in the air for 10 seconds.
-6a: Steep uphill anyhyzer, through somewhat tight opening in beautiful tall pines. *This course needs another hole or two like this.*

Cons: -Signage not great. Print the map on the link to the review. It was good and very helfpul to navigate.
-Too many filler holes that don't offer challenge or maximize the resources of the unique topography.
-Tees: A few are dirt/grass. Remainder are brick and ok to throw from as a surface, but in most cases 3-5 feet too short. A few are tightly next to trees/walls and restrictive. Would like to see these tees longer, a little wider, and also level.
-Baskets: Not a matched set, and a few could be of better quality.
Other Thoughts: I live and play in the U.S. and found this and another course to play while vacationing in Bavaria. Surprised that there isn't more disc golf in souther Germany. Beautiful area and folks there seem to live active and outdoor lifestyles. Somebody made a nice start with this course. Hopefully they've the resources to revise and polish this into a gem.
