Experience incredible views and cool mountain air while playing disc golf at 10,350’ above sea level on a beautiful mountain disc golf course at the summit of Red River Ski Area. The course features the original recreational layout with 18 holes and a tournament layout with 21 holes. With tee pads for both pro and amateur players, this truly is a course that can be enjoyed by all.
The Sunny Side front nine starts with a scenic tee shot under, or over the Copper Chair down the Kit Carson ski trail. The remaining eight holes on the front nine are shorter, most playing slightly uphill on ski trails. The Sunny Side front nine is a great start for beginner disc golf players or those who only have time for a quick round and want to experience a mountain course.
The Cracker Jack back nine plays slightly uphill on a ridge through hole three. Beginning at hole four, players enter the large aspen grove that is prominent on the backside of the mountain. With narrower fairways, longer holes, and considerable elevation changes, the Cracker Jack back nine challenges even the best disc golf players. Many players consider the Cracker Jack back nine to be one of the most scenic mountain courses they have played, just don’t forget your hiking shoes and water.
The course is free to play but access requires either a hike to the summit via a 3.5 mile hiking trail or a Scenic Summer Chairlift ticket. Discounted tickets for the Scenic Summer Chairlift are available to current PDGA members with proof of membership.

What is Disc Golf and How to Play
Disc golf is played like traditional golf, but with disc golf discs instead of a ball and clubs. The objective is to play each hole in the fewest strokes possible. One stroke is counted each time the disc is thrown and/or when a penalty is incurred. The player with the lowest total strokes for the entire course wins.
- Each hole begins with a tee throw which must be completed within or behind the designated tee area.
- The lie is the spot where the player's previous throw has landed. The player's subsequent throw is made from directly behind the lie.
- A disc that comes to rest in the basket or chains constitutes successful completion of that hole.
- Remain quiet and avoid unnecessary movements while others are throwing.
- Never throw when players or other people are within range. Always give other land users the right of way.
- Stand behind the player who is throwing until their throw is complete.
- Allow faster groups to play through.
- Please no smoking or littering on the course.
