Update on Fire-Related Disc Golf Closures

May 20, 2014

***Update***  All of the courses affected by the fires have re-opened!

While the fires have been put out (for the most part, at least), the Cocos Fire (San Marcos) continues to have an impact on our local disc golf courses.

Kit Carson Park DGC – While Kit Carson was in no danger of burning, the entire park, including the disc golf course, has been closed since last Thursday while the park has been used as the staging area for the fire crews battling the Cocos fire.  Fire crews have been using KCP to park their fire engines, set up tents for sleeping and set up mobile kitchens and dining areas.  The City of Escondido website currently says that the entire park is closed through end of the day Thursday (5/22/2014).  If this changes we will announce it here.

Cal State San Marcos DGC – The fire came very close to CSUSM (I was there, I saw it!), but the campus sustained no physical damage.  CSUSM was also use as an emergency command post through last weekend, so the campus (including the disc golf course) was closed.  Graduation ceremonies had been scheduled for last weekend but were postponed to this coming weekend (Sat/Sun, 5/24-25).Because of all the set-up and tear-down work that has to be done around the track area, the campus has closed holes 1-8 from 8am on Thursday (5/22) until 5pm on Monday (5/26).

Thank you for your patience!
