A beautiful course in a great setting, but can be very punishing for a resort course. Front nine is tight, back nine surrounded by protected wetlands. If you can't consistently hit the ball straight, or at least where you are aiming, you will feel pretty beat up by the end of the round. Cart path only at all times doesn't help either. Also, keeping greens consistent is always a challenge in alpine settings, especially during the first half of the season. If golf is not the #1 reason you are coming here, however, the resort and surrounding area and other outdoor activities (hiking, biking, fishing, swimming, etc.) are awesome.

Would travel: 0-10 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Average course for the area, Better courses for less nearby

Some people love this course, others hate it. If you're on the fairway, you'll enjoy the round. If you spray it around, you'll be in the environmentally protected areas and have a miserable time. The course is extremely scenic, but surprisingly flat for a mountain course.

Would travel: 30-60 Miles, Vacation Worthy
Bottom line: I would play again, Better than average course for the area
