Out of Town Monthly Tourneys

The last 3 weeks I've gone up to Orange County and played in monthlies at El Dorado, La Mirada and yesterday Huntington Beach. I'm steadily improving each time I go up. El Dorado was the first organized event I played outside San Diego so I was a little nervous, especially when I found out that they put me in the Advanced division. I shot even the first round which was good enough to tie me for 1st at the break. After a delicious BBQ provided by the hosts I went out and shot +5 the second round… Continue

La Mirada

La Mirada was the last stop on our disc golf/wine tour. We played the Lakeside course first and then moved to the back 18. The Lakeside course was very interesting. Lots of elevation changes, and the holes that shoot along the top of the ridge can drive a person insane. If you get any roll on this hole it will be a bad one. It will take off and roll at least 150' feet down a steep slope towards the lake with no backdrop to stop it from getting… Continue

Oak Grove

Oak Grove was my favorite course of the 5 we played over the weekend. It was supposedly the first permenant basket course which is cool. Like Evergreen, it is a course that requires many different kind of shots. The interesting thing about Oak Grove was the random baskets and tees throughout the course. There were at least 3 entire holes that were not on the course map but fit in perfectly with the way the course winds around and through the… Continue

Evergreen Open Space

This was actually my wife's favorite course of the entire trip. I think she says that just because it was the only course where she made a birdie! I really enjoyed this course also though. It was a lot of fun because it requires so many different kind of shots. I can't recall precisely, but I'm pretty sure that I threw every disc in my bag on this course. We met up with a cool local named Dave (pictured below with my wife) who showed us the… Continue

El Dorado

Eldo was the second stop on our disc golf/wine tour. I think I shot my best score on the entire trip here although by the end of the round I was climbing trees to get my discs out. Fatigue became a factor because of the long drive and playing Huntington Beach in the morning. This course was fun to play but can become a little tedious. Most of the shots have to be shaped around trees which makes it fun and interesting. My wife had a hard time… Continue

Huntington Beach

Huntington Beach was the first stop on my disc golf/wine tour of southern California. I really enjoyed this course. My wife and I got there about 7:30 in the morning to an empty course (something you rarely see in San Diego at any time of day). After putting around for a bit we ran into a local who was able to show us where to start. This course is pretty straight forward but there are some holes out there that can ruin a good score. I really… Continue
