Growing Popularity of Disc Golf Spurs Installation of the Slopeside 9 at Blue Mountain Ski Area!

Palmerton, Pennsylvania (16 May 2011)--When the newest golf course in the Lehigh Valley, Pennsylvania officially open during the Memorial Day holiday at Blue Mountain Ski Area in Palmerton, it will not be clubs and balls you will see players toting around the fairways.  Instead, you will find the players with the flying discs that they will be throwing into above ground metal baskets on each hole trying to make par.   

The Grand Opening of Blue Mountain's Slopeside 9 disc golf course will be held Memorial Day weekend, May 26-29, 2011, at the Palmerton resort.  The public is invited to come and play at the area's newest disc golf course this weekend and every weekend throughout October 30, 2011, except on the July 4th holiday.


Disc golf is growing steadily in the Lehigh Valley, as well as around the nation, as people look for more affordable and time-efficient recreational outlets to enjoy with their friends and family.  Disc golf has grown in stature throughout the Lehigh Valley, especially since Allentown played host to the 2005 Professional Disc Golf Association's World Championships.  There is also a full schedule of disc golf events held throughout the year at regional courses. 

“We made a decision a few years back to go four-seasons with our facilities”, explained Barb Green, owner of the Blue Mountain Ski Area.  "We visited a number of resorts to see what they were doing in the warm months.  When we visited Sugarbush in Vermont, we found two disc golf courses there; one at the top of the mountain and one at the bottom.  It didn't take long to figure out that this was an exciting new activity and decide that we would be having it at Blue Mountain," Green said. 

With the help of nationally recognized disc golf course designers Dan Doyle and Steve Brinster, Blue Mountain installed the Skyline Park course and the Valley Park course in 2010.  Both courses have multiple configurations, depending upon which tee pad or target the players select.  Skyline Park is an advanced 18-hole course with mountain top fairways, hill traversing woods play and chances to launch a drive off the top of a mountain.  Valley Park is an intermediate 18-hole course with wide-open fairways and forested areas, played in the shadow of the mountain, complete with foot bridges and a hill top launching grand finale!


The Slopeside 9 is the newest addition, a beginner 9-hole course which begins and ends at our Summit Lodge Slopeside Pub & Grill.  Try one or all three of Blue Mountain’s exciting disc golf courses this summer!

Hours of operation for the Skyline Park Course and the Valley Park Course are Thursdays & Fridays 10AM to 6PM and Saturdays & Sundays 9AM to 6PM.  The new Slopeside 9 Course is open Thursdays & Fridays 10AM to Dusk and Saturdays & Sundays 9AM to Dusk.  Be sure to stop by the Summit Lodge Slopeside Pub & Grill to pay your green fees or purchase a season disc golf pass for access to all 3 courses.  A disc golf season pass costs $50.  Daily passes cost $5 to play all three courses or $3 to play just the Slopeside 9.  There are also disc golf equipment rentals available for novice players and families.  To find out more information about the full summer of activities at Blue Mountain, visit http://www.skibluemt.com or call (610)826-7700.
