The course was sugarbush. Sugarbush is a ski resort for most of the year. But looking for summer business, they turned their mountainside into a 36 hole golf course and downhill mountain bike ride of death. (Sure, I guess, it's fun, but from the looks of the protective gear those guys were wearing, I'll stick to Athens bike path.) One 18 hole course is at the base of the mountain. Base meaning, you are still going up and down. The other course is at the top of the mountain and you play downhill. To get to the top, you can walk or take the ski lift. Unfortunately, I didn't wear my hiking shoes, so I took the lift with Daron and Cathy. Eric, Kent, John and the dogs walked.
We had a blast as the course was a combo of tight throws, and open. One hole was 1200 feet. Of course, it was all downhill. But still it's hard to aim downhill. Not used to that. Here are some photos of the day.
Here's us on the ski lift.
