AVON, CO – SEASONAL – Classic mountain resort golf awaits you at Beaver Creek. Located at the top of the Centennial chair lift, this course is a pleasure for players of all ages and abilities. You’ll be greeted with holes that are challenging but fair, a heavy dose of elevation change and breathtaking views all over the course. New players should come prepared for rugged, high altitude terrain and quickly changing mountain weather. Lift tickets must be purchased before riding the chair up to the course.
GLENWOOD SPRINGS, CO – PERMANENT – Diverse course in the shadow of the majestic Mt. Sopris. Success at CMC requires a wide variety of shots due to the rugged topography and multiple pin positions on each hole. A dedicated local club (Roaring Fork Disc Golf Club) ensured that the course is kept well and pins are moved regularly. Large cement tee pads and custom tee sign stands are installed at each hole and each sign includes views of the hole and its multiple hole positions, as well as laser accurate distances to each position. Abundance of trees creates tough lines, even on shorter holes and, while elevation change is moderate, it is utilized well on several holes. The signature “crater” hole (#2) is a must play.
True mountain challenge and beauty can be found at one of Colorado’s most remote disc golf courses.

The panorama at tee #1 includes a handful of the state’s tallest peaks. Leadville’s disc golf course is a destination in itself and is not to be missed.

One of the Rockies most historic and popular courses, Peak One DGC in Frisco has variety and views in abundance. Located on the Frisco Peninsula Recreation Area, its panorama included Dillon Reservoir as well as the surrounding mountain ranges. The variety also extends to the layout which includes tree lined fairways, multiple pin positions and plenty of length.
Situated on a raised plateau above the town of Edwards, features many precarious basket placements right on the edge of a steep drop off. A scattering of small trees guard a few of the pin positions and good use of elevation change adds challenge to the open holes. Prevailing west winds can also come into play, usually blowing discs straight toward the cliff.
