Pros: - Course is set on the top of a smallish ski hill, which provides an awesome view of the land below. Being 15 feet from a 900 foot drop with abundant wildlife at one point is an incredible vista.
- Lots of elevation changes on nearly every hole, though nothing too extreme. Course is more set in a freelance ski area, but there are still decent slopes.
- Good use of mature trees and forested areas to add difficulty. Only a few wide open shots to the basket.
- Two sets of tees with a huge difference for most holes. The blues are much shorter and easier, and the reds add some real length.
- Basket placement by trees on a few holes also add some difficulty.
- Good baskets, portable but durable. Tee pads small but good, top notch signage.
- Portable basket for putting practice outside the pro shop.
Cons: - This course was designed for a RHBH player. Almost every shot is either straight or curves left.
- Some longs walks between holes, one of which is uphill and tiresome. I think the greatest elevation change is experienced hiking to hole 5.
Other Thoughts: - Great course for beginners from the short tees, and a good course for seasoned players from the long tees.
- I expected some bigger elevation changes, but it doesn't use the regular ski runs for the course. Don't plan on throwing anything down a mountain.
- There are some hiking and bike trails around, but I didn't see anybody out there.
