New Course(s) Update
The San Diego Aces are looking forward to installing the new 9-hole disc golf course at Mast Park in Santee in the next several weeks. Installation has been delayed by some contract negotiations, but they are procedural details that should be worked out soon. Please keep your eyes open for work party announcements which should be coming soon!
Another new set of disc golf baskets will be installed this January at Colina Park Golf Course in City Heights (San Diego). 2014 Aces President Allen Risley has been working with the management at Colina Park to design the disc golf layout, which will follow the existing ball golf layout. Colina Park is a “pitch & putt” golf course, with average ball golf hole distances of 70-100 yards, so this will be a midrange-friendly disc golf layout.
Colina Park Golf Course is home base for The First Tee of San Diego, an organization that uses golf as a vehicle for teaching life skills to local kids. Since it is a kid-safe environment, Colina Park Golf Course has strict no smoking and no alcohol policies which will be enforced (shoes and shirts are also mandatory). Details on the schedule for play and greens fees are still being worked out and will be announced once they are finalized – please do not call the pro shop asking for these details! We will be organizing a weekday work party in the upcoming weeks, so keep watching for that.
Tentative plans are to hold an Ice Bowl tournament late in February as a grand opening event. Once again, please do not call the pro shop for more details – you will see them here first!
