BOYNE FALLS, MI – If you’re a disc golf fan looking for a really unusual spot to play, it’s time to put Boyne Mountain’s course on your must-throw list. The recently-rebranded Cold Springs frisbee golf course elevates your game – literally. Players hop on a four-season ski lift to reach the beginning of the course.
“You ride a chairlift to the top, then you throw down the mountain,” said Adam Rase, the resort’s Adventure Center manager.
This mountainside course uses a flag system to help players identify the 18 baskets. Players can bring their own discs or rent a set from the Adventure Center when they check in. The course and disc rental is free for guests staying at Boyne Mountain, and Cold Springs is also available to daytrippers stopping by for a game. If you’re just visiting, swing by the center to check in, buy your ticket for the Hemlock lift, and pick up a scorecard and a course map. The Hemlock lift runs daily during the resort’s peak summer season and on weekends into early fall. If you don’t want a scenic ride to the top, you can also hike up the mountain, then play down.

Tip: This course is wooded, has some stunning views, but it can be a new experience for disc golfers used to primarily open, flat terrain.
“It’s challenging, but it can be for everyone,” Rase said. There are both short and long holes down the mountain, with the last hole measuring 610 feet.
“A lot of thought and work went into shot-shaping, because of the unusual terrain.”
The course takes about two hours to play.
