Enjoy the beautiful views while playing this challenging yet fun 30-basket disc golf course. Start the lower course just up the slope from the Mountain Shop or take the Mt. Rainier Gondola up to start the more challenging course from the summit down. The summit course closes September 20, 2015 and the lower course closes in mid October.
Let Em’ Fly!
The Crystal Mountain Disc Golf Course has 30 holes where you can play 2 different routes that share the same “back 9”. The traditional 18 basket “Lower Course” starts at the base area near the Discovery Chairlift and finishes on Exterminator, next to the Alpine Inn & Snorting Elk Cellar.
The 12 basket “Summit Course” is accessible by a scenic gondola ride. Start right off the top of Crystal under the Rainier Express Chairlift and play the most extreme course anywhere! Follow the course under Powder Bowl and Lucky Shot while launching some of the longest disc flights imaginable. Play past the lower terminal of Rainier Express and head down Broadway until you reach the Forest Queen Express and hole #10. From hole #10, follow the traditional Lower Course back down the mountain.
The course is free and open to anyone at anytime. Good shoes/hiking boots are recommended. Good marking/spotting is important and a big help in finding your discs. The Mountain Shop, Crystal Mountain Hotels and the Snorting Elk Cellar have free course maps available and custom stamped discs for sale.
