6th Annual Jackson Hole Disc Tournament
Jackson Hole Sports host the first is a series of disc golf tournaments to be held in Teton Village this summer. The 10 hole course starts uphill from the bottom of the Gondola. It winds its way up Eagle’s Rest Cutoff and over to the top of Eagle’s Rest Lift, and then descends back to the bottom of Lower Werner.
Although the course in Teton Village has taken a back seat to mountain bike expansion, a number of holes offer challenging and scenic shots. The classic #8 hole, featured in the video below, drops nearly 90 feet in elevation and is a favorite of many. The layout is best suited for disc tossers with a well rounded game.
