Disc Golfers in the Monterey Bay area were saddened to discover that baskets #12 & #18, at "The Oaks" course had been stolen. The crime happened sometime between Sunday night and Monday morning (Feb. 17th & 18th).
That Sunday day there were a lot of disc golfers on the course, getting some practice in on both "The Cypress" and "The Oaks", located on the California State University Monterey Bay (CSUMB) campus. The reason there were so many disc golfers present was the fact that, next weekend (Feb. 23rd & 24th) the two courses will be the sight for the 10th annual Otter Open. The Otter Open is the biggest tourney in Monterey County, and attracts some of the biggest names in the game. Nate Doss the current World Champion and National Tour Points Winner, has won the Otter Open the last three years.
There is a $300.00 reward for the return of the baskets. The baskets are Mach Fives with rusty S hooks, they also have orange pole stickers with the numbers 12 or 18. Contact Merle Witvoet (831) 688-5567, if you have any information. Thank You.
