Good to hear that you dig tossing the discs around!

Ok, I'm officially hooked!  I was given some old golf discs by someone I met on the course last week and started playing with one of them (both drivers), but now realize I need to get, I believe, an "under-stable" model to throw my maximum potential distance.  Despite having less-than-optimum equipment, I played three rounds by myself on Monday, so I think that means I'm officially hooked. (and my kids think I'm crazy)

I took my family out on Monday to check out the course.  Fantastic!!!!  I was the only one who had ever played frisbee golf before (other than a chance encounter with a course on the edge of Mt. Agassiz in Flagstaff a few years ago; a course at about 10,000 feet!).  It's quite a good workout to play up and down those holes!  The numerous branches makes for a level of uncertainty that I think makes it even more fun than a wide-open course.  I had all 3's or 4's, except for one 6 (lousy branches! ;)  ), but didn't bring the course map and scorecard to know what the pars were.  I look forward to going again, hopefully before the snow sets in.

All 18 holes are in.  Check out Beacondiscgolf.com and visit Mountain Tops for discs  (rentals and sales) and rules. Go play one of the most addicting games ever invented. Post a message on Beacondiscgolf.com and one of the club members can walk you through a round.

We have the first nine baskets in, the tees are marked and some of the boxes are taking shape. Ross check out and join beacondiscgolf.com People are up there almost every night playing. We have the rules posted on the website. Mountain Tops is a disc supplier, they also can tell you the basics of the game. We have a map of the layout of the holes on beacondiscgolf.com.

Never played. Interested to learn though.

I looked at the photos and I can't tell if you have the chain/basket setups for the "holes", or just targets.  Which is it?

Check out and join beacondiscgolf.com.

First nine holes are almost ready.

Mountain Tops is carrying discs and discbags now.
