Howdy all, are all these courses at the Ski Resorts, real courses, ie: perm. tees, etc. or are they just, put together for the tournament type courses?? I'm new to DG so I don't know, just couldn't see cement tee pads on ski slopes! ;) Thanks for the info, it's appreciated!

It is my understanding that most are put in around Memorial Day and pulled out around Labor Day and are temporary so they don't have anchors. However I've played several for a few years and the baskets always seem to end up in the same spot so I'd call them more like permanent courses. Call ahead to the resort in question and make sure the course is installed first, we went to Aspen one year and only the front nine were in play, which was ok, we just played em twice.
Also, if you decide to save the price of the lift ticket and drive up, make sure they aren't doing any construction, we almost got stuck and had to come back down a service road that required four wheel drive and was still a little hairy, I'm just glad I drive a Jeep and the Chevy we rented in Denver was 4wd, and then we still had to wait fifteen minutes for the gate to be unlocked. It mad for some good stories, lol.
I've played the Frisco/Breckenridge, Winterpark (two courses one on the mountain and one at the YMCA), The Empire Easter Seals Course, Conifer, and Leadville. I believe the Easter Seals course is being taken out but you can contact the Badlands crew that runs the Thornton and Westminster courses to find out. The ski resort courses I permanent but contingent on the snow, they usually get the baskets up when the snow melts. Leadville is my favorite and is pretty mush permanent but unplayable due to snow issues at times, you can contact Colorado Mountain College in Leadville to ask questions (The ladies are real nice.) Conifer is also permanent and a real fun course but I'm sure there are weather issues there too. Good luck, feel free to contact me for any more questions.
