In the past decade, several skis areas in our region have dabbled with disc golf. None have put in the effort that Smuggs has.
Some charge to play but Smuggs is the only one that I am aware of, that has a full-time staff dedicated to maintaining the course. Some like Bolton, have given up on it. Smuggs is also the only one that did not try to put their course on the ski slopes. Disc golf courses on ski slopes tend to be very difficult to play and are easy places to lose discs.
A few years ago Smuggs put in a disc golf course. Since then they have done quite a bit of work to it. They have not stopped. They are constantly tweaking it and adding to it. Now they are putting in stone paver tee boxes. Last year Smuggs added an additional 9 holes and this year they added another 9 holes. So what was generally agreed to be the best disc golf course in Vermont, has doubled in size. Smuggs is trying to become a regular stop for the pro tour* and is hoping host Nationals and Worlds. Smugs has the infrastructure in place to host large tournaments like this.
