My obsession with playing disc golf during the spring, summer, and fall is constantly growing. I just can’t get enough of it.

It’s also pretty fitting that American ski resorts are home to some of the best disc golf courses in the entire world. It’s how you say… magnefique!

In fueling my obsession, I’ve taken it upon myself to research the ski resorts with the top disc golf courses in the country according to player ratings posted to UDisc. You can read more about UDisc here.
