Larger than life! Guess that's how it has to happen in snowy VT though...winter golf rocks!! This basket looks super-rugged and built-to-last. It's all part of the 9-hole "Maples" course at Jackson Gore:
Okemo Mountain Resort has recently completed construction of a nine-hole disc golf course at its Jackson Gore base area. The Maples at Okemo Disc Golf Course is now open to the public and welcomes players daily from 7 a.m. until sunset. Greens fees are $2 per person and disc rentals are available for $5 (including greens fees) for a set of three discs: driver, mid-range disc and putter.
The Maples at Okemo Disc Golf Course offers play uniquely inspired by Vermont's maple sugaring traditions. The tee boxes for each target include an interpretive tour of sugaring history and the process for making maple syrup. The natural wood of the target posts pays homage to Vermont's state tree, the sugar maple. Authentic galvanized metal sap buckets atop the posts bare the number of each hole, and metal tubs serve as the destination baskets for final throws.
The longest hole, number 7, at The Maples at Okemo Disc Golf Course is 451-feet long. The shortest hole, number 6, measures 132 feet. Number 8 is the course's signature hole and requires players to throw across a brook through a narrow opening in the trees or to lay-up on a bridge before making a final approach shot. The course was designed by Adam Ford and built by Okemo staff.
Players should check in at the Jackson Gore Spring House, where they will receive a score card with a course map and some basic guidelines for play. Discs are available for rent and for purchase at the Spring House also.
For more information about The Maples at Okemo Disc Golf Course or other events and activities Okemo has to offer in summer, call (802) 228-1600 or visit okemo.com.
Superb....I sure hope to play this museum/course someday! Maybe even in the snow yo!!
