Wisp Deep Creek Ski Resort
This was my 1st course. I was on vacation and thought I disc golf would be fun because I love playing Frisbee.Because of this course I am now playing all the time now. The bottom 9 are simple par 3's with wide open shots at the bottom of the mountain. There is just one tee box to throw from. The top 9 things get challenging and you can pick blue or white boxes to throw from. To get to the top 9 you have to take the ski lift to the top of the mountain. The 10th is a par 4 and if you throw from the blue box you are shooting off what almost amounts to a cliff (its a black diamond during ski season). Holes 11-17 are fun par 4's (one 3). If you mess up and throw into the woods good luck finding your disc. Even if you do find it getting to it is hard because of the way the mountain slopes. 18 is another great hole. You again are throwing from the top of a slope to the bottom. Watching my disc fly off the mountain is why I have taken up the game.
The only down side to this course is that is not very well set up. There are no concrete boxes to play from (just wooden posts). No signs showing where the hole locations are or distances. You get a map when you pay but the map is only kinda helpful. If you have not played it before you will spend time looking for the next tee box. The disc golf course is there as a fun extra that the resort offers when it's not ski season. Everything they set up is designed to vanish once they start to prep for ski season. I also don't know if they cut the grass on the course during the summer (most resorts don't cut it until fall). I played in the spring and the fairways were perfect.
This course is really fun. If you are planning to go to Deep Creek on vacation or business then bring your discs. Once I improve my game I plan to go back and test my skills.
