18-hole Disc Golf
The 18-hole Grand Targhee Disc Golf Course plays through rolling aspen meadows at 8,000 feet. Discs seem to float further at the high-alpine elevation, so you can enjoy drives that are over 550 feet. Long holes, short holes, through trees, and everything in between, this is not your standard wide-open links course. The course favors players with an arsenal of throwing techniques, from standard backhand and forehand to tomahawks. Beginners and experts alike will be challenged.
The course is available on a first-come-first-serve basis. Please remember to stop by the Activity Center for a course map and Teton Mountain Outfitters for disc sale. There are beverages available for purchase at the Trap Bar and Grill, the General Store, and the Branding Iron Grill cocktail bar.
