Disc Golf Baskets Added to Colina Park Golf Course

January 22, 2015

Colina Park DGC Map - 01222015The San Diego Aces have helped Colina Park Golf Course in City Heights (San Diego) install 18 Discatchers on their pitch and putt golf course. The holes are from 148′ to 310′, with most in the 220-250′ range. Pins are tucked close to greens and bunkers to provide challenge and the landscape has ample elevation change, which is utilized with a few baskets perched on drop-offs. Open for disc golf play on Friday, Jan. 23rd, tee times recommended.

Colina Park is home to the First Tee of San Diego and Pro Kids Golf Academy, organizations that use golf as a vehicle for teaching life skills to kids. City Heights is a disadvantaged neighborhood and the kids enrolled in the Pro Kids Academy have a homework club and tutoring to assist them with their studies. No golf until homework is complete.

Since the facility is kid-focussed there is no smoking and no alcohol permitted on site or in the parking lot. Shirts and shoes required. The golf course is in pristine condition and should prove to be a fun place to exercise your midrange and putter game. Greens fees are $7 on weekdays, $8 on weekends with a $10 all-day option. Tee times recommended.

The Aces will hold an Ice Bowl tournament on Saturday, Feb. 28th, benefitting the San Diego Food Bank. This will be the final event in the Golden Sombrero Series of Ice Bowls. One round, starting at 2pm. $25 entry fee includes a Golden Sombrero-stamped disc and 3 mulligans. Players may purchase an additional ten mulligans for $1 each (but no more than ten!). Watch for registration on DGU.
