Great course! Good mix of technical, short, and long power uphill shots. Shots work well for RHBH and LHBH and forehand players. Very beautiful location just 20 minutes from Missoula. The driving range and practice basket are awesome, located near the parking lot. The baskets are perfect and thank you very much to the sky ranch owners for giving the local people another course to play!

Rocky Mountain Rough Terrain course. No level hole on whole course. Basically a technical course. Unlike most Montana courses it doesn't discriminate against alternate throwing styles. Most courses in Montana blatantly cater to RHBH players. One reason is top players in Montana in the 1970's threw right hand side arm shots and RHBH players designed course so only they could win. This course is not one of those. Problem with course is the structural problem with PDGA rules. PDGA has disc weight standards but no basket size standard. General consensus is Disc Catcher Innova baskets suck. The baskets cost me 10 strokes on first round. The PDGA Mach all is the standard. Everyone complains about the Yellow chastity belt on Innova baskets. I complain that the basket portion upper ring is too high. When you practice on Mach all's all day you are going to throw a perfect putt on a Disc Catcher and it will hit the upper ring and reject your putt. Steady Ed had the same idea I had when he developed his basket. I followed it more closely than he did. Borrow from current sports. Ed's basket sweet zone was based on the baseball strike zone of a 6 foot tall man. Disc Catchers are not. Mine design doesn't have the basket mine was a chain target. My design was the chain assembly was on an 18 inch diameter which was the same diameter of a basket ball hoop. I made the chains hang 2 feet which is the distance between the shoulders and waist of a man. Ed's sweet zone is 18 inches. There is some sentiment for reducing the diameter of the chain assembly and I suggest 18 inches instead of twenty four as the standard. May never happen but I've decided I'm not playing any more tournaments unless the course has Mach lll or even Mach l's if any still exist. Have not played any Mach L's yet. It's not worth the frustration of trying to change a putting style I've used since the 1950's to capitulate to a standard that has no rhyme or reason behind it. Disc golf was a target sport that changed with Ed's basket. Now it's about placing disc in basket. You can debate the chain assembly but the basket itself needs to be standardized.
