The Arizona Snowbowl Disc Golf Course was originally created in 2003 as a temporary course for the ’03 PDGA Pro World Championsips. This Pro Worlds design was epic in scope and featured many signature holes, maybe none so fabled as the famous hole #18 that followed the Agassiz ski run, plummeting nearly 1000 ft. towards spectators on the patio at the Agassiz Lodge. Elaine King’s drive clanged off of the tray of the basket, only to leave her with an upshot for a par.
The course was redesigned in 2005 for the PDGA Amateur World Championships. A tamer version of the ’03 design was installed permanently for tournament and recreational use.
Due to the installation of snow-making equipment, the course was reduced to nine holes for a couple of years. It is currently back to an 18-hole layout.
The course is seasonal and usually open from June-October.
