On Friday afternoon, Oct. 29th and Saturday morning, Oct.30th, 2010, Cal State San Marcos will hold the first tournament on its new disc golf course, the First Gentleman’s Disc Golf Open. CSUSM “First Gentleman” Jim Mickelson will be hosting this tournament, which is a fundraiser to benefit ACE Scholars Services here at CSUSM.
