If so, here’s your chance to prove it! This Saturday (12/14/2013) from 9am to 5pm we will be holding a Hott Shott putting contest at the Kit Carson Park Disc Golf Course. Your first attempt at the contest is free (2nd time is $2, $5 for more) and you’ll have a chance to compete for a State or National title. Hott Shott putting contests will be held all across the country on December 14th, and we’re a part of that movement.
Hott Shott is not your typical putting contest. Each participant throws 2 rounds of 25 putts. In each round, you’ll throw 5 discs from 5ft, 10ft, 15ft, 20ft and 25ft. One of your discs at each station will be worth extra points, kind of like the 3-point contest at the NBA All-Star game. If there are over 50 participants, 1st prize will be $50.
And if that isn’t enough, there will be a round of glow disc golf after 5pm. Our TD has brought in glowing chains, just for this event!
Aces’ Membership Director Mark Verrochi will be running the contest and glow round – for more information contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This weekend is the annual Southwestern Team Tournament at Morley Field, where 12-person teams representing southwestern disc golf communities do match-play battle at Morley. It’s a great chance to see some of our best local players match up against the best from Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Oak Grove, HB, Sylmar and Arizona. A few former World Champions will be on hand. The course will be closed all day Saturday and Sunday morning for this event, so plan your weekend play accordingly. http://morleyfield.com/

2014 San Diego Aces’ memberships went on sale this past weekend, in conjunction with bag tag melees and voting held at Kit Carson Park (Saturday) and Morley Field (Sunday). Discs available for registered members include Star Terns, Blizzard Wraiths and Champion Roc3s from Innova; Cannons and Patriots in various premium plastics from Legacy; Squalls and Breakers in Sparkle and Prostyle plastics from DGA. The Aces have also unveiled new dri-fit shirts, available as part of a membership package. Several bag tag competitors sported these shirts during the competition.
KCP Course Rep Tony Buck was given the honor of choosing which tags would be available on Saturday, and he blindly chose odd numbers. Scott Miller (1), Greg Stanbro (3), Matt Howard (5), Garrett Tapken (7) and Josh Hesser (9) walked away with the first five black tags on Saturday. Garrett and Josh stepped up and brought those tags back out for challenge on Sunday at Morley Field. When the round was over, the 2014 black tags were held by:
- Scott Miller
- Carlo Pelg
- Greg Stanbro
- Brad Armstrong
- Matt Howard
- Richard H.
- Garrett Tapken
- Jeff Nichols
- Mike Westerman
- Mike Slonim
Honorable mention: Derek Dryer shot a -10 at Morley which would have given him a black tag, but he had chosen not to sign up for 2014 yet. Many thanks to Mark Verrochi for organizing the bag tag challenges both days as well as the membership registration.
Both 2013 and 2014 tags are now in play until Dec. 31st. Rmember…EVERY ROUND is a bag tag round!
Online voting for the San Diego Aces board election has concluded. If you are a current member and were not able to vote online, you can do so on Saturday, Nov. 30 at Kit Carson Park (9a-1p) or Sunday, Dec. 1 at Morley Field (9a-1p).
Kit Carson Park Disc Golf Course holes 6 through 18 will be closed on Sunday, November 24th from 8am to 2pm for a regional high school cross country meet. The City of Escondido and the Aces ask that you play another course at that time.
Please cooperate with race organizers and the Parks Department – the park is there for all of us to share, sometimes we just can’t play disc golf there.
Thanks for your cooperation!!!
Course closure information for this weekend (11/16-11/17 2013) – Brengle Terrace DGC will be closed all day Saturday and Sunday until 1pm for the SoCal Pro Disc Golf Championships.
Kit Carson Park DGC will be hosting several cross country running events this weekend and next. We recommend that you do not try to play while these meets are going on – the race route crosses or affects Holes 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 14, 15, 16, 17 & 18. We played in the SoCal Am Championships at KCP last weekend, and the races continually interrupted our morning rounds.
