Just 7 miles east of Keystone is Arapahoe Basin Ski Resort. You may be familiar with the world class skiing offered there. In the summertime the mountain opens up to an array of activities, including Disc Golf. Arapahoe Basin will host its first ever sanctioned by the Professional Disc Golf Association event this summer on Saturday, August 3, and Sunday, August 4. Payouts will go to pro level down to novice and junior divisions.
Admission to compete in this event is $70 for the pro and open divisions, $40 for the advanced divisions and $25 for the junior division and general entry. Check in for the event on Saturday, Aug. 3, will take place between 7:30 – 8:30 a.m. at the ski area’s guest services building, followed by a players meeting in the Mountain Goat Plaza base area between 8:30 – 9 a.m. Disc golfers will then head to the first hole, with play beginning at approximately 9:45 a.m. Tournament play will go to approximately 4:30 p.m. each day. The tournament is non-refundable and will go on rain or shine.
If you just want to practice your skills the course is open every day except tournament days. The course, featuring all par-3 holes, is free to play, and it starts in the base area, climbs up to the top of North Fork then loops around to the Pallavicini chair and back to the base area.
