Setting/scenery, especially in the autumn.

Two tee locations seven of nine holes. Practice basket.

Even w/o the map, which I discovered post-playing is available in the deli, the course is easy to navigate.
Short, natural tees/worn-out spots. Portable baskets.

A couple of approaches are poke-n-hope.
Other Thoughts:
Course plays in a counter-clockwise fashion down/across a mixture of open space/patch of woods next to/below the deli/bakery at the Trapp Family Lodge. Basic teesigns at the long (blue-painted wood) locations will give a rough idea as to the shape of the hole, and there are markers at the baskets for the next tee. The shorter tees, marked by a couple small sections of birch branches, are a bit harder to find. A brief hole-by-hole description, from the long tees:

#1 360', wide open, downslope, water retention basin long-n-left.
#2 350', downslope, broad fairway, requiring/holding a moderate left-turn at the midpoint
#3 330', initially downslope, narrow window at ~130', then flat, basket behind small tree/bushes
#4 395', flat throughout, wide open first 250', then slight right into woods with ever-shrinking windows
#5 316', gently upslope, S-shape through scattered trees, poke-n-hope trees 30' before basket
#6 260', straight but challenging wooded fairway first 150', then open to basket on slope
#7 290', elevated tee just outside of woods, choice of early or late right-turner, poke-n-hope trees at midpoint
#8 180', subtle right-turner up subtle slope within woods
#9 270', open, challenge is right-to-left slope and large tree early on right

Worth a visit if in the area. Food/beer was good, but on the pricey side.
