Mast Park Work Party Scheduled for Thursday, July 9th

July 6, 2015


Thursday, July 9th from 7am to 3pm. Yes, 7am – the city crew starts work early.  We will be:  1) setting the sleeves into the ground for all nine holes, 3 sleeves per hole or 27 sleeves;  2) assembling the baskets; 3) digging the tee pad foundations, building and setting frames for the tees and filling the frames with DG (decomposed granite).  We will be aided by a work crew from the City of Santee, who are bringing a power auger (to dig the holes), a cement mixer trailer (so we don’t have to lug bags of cement and buckets of water) and the lumber and DG for the tees.  We need a big crew in order to get this all done in one day – and please show up as early as possible so we can organize.

VERY IMPORTANT!!! Because of insurance issues, volunteers (that means all of us) are NOT allowed to park in the park’s parking lot or on any other city property (this may be referring to parking for the library next to the park?). We are asking everyone to park at the nearby Wal-Mart and walk to the park (map is below).

We need volunteers to bring some tools:  shovels, post-hole diggers, bow rakes, hammers, wrenches, screwdrivers, duct tape (don’t you always need duct tape?).  Instructions for installing the basket sleeves can be found here.  Check it out so you’re ready for Thursday!

If you have any questions or would like to receive emails regarding the work party, please send me a message at

    Did this ever go to the public for a vote? We bought a condo two years ago…with the assumed knowledge that nothing would be put in the park because it was a green belt area…no construction of any kind, no courts of any kind, etc. I’m sure I am not the only person living here that does not want this course right next to our homes. Why can’t you just leave this open space an open space? That’s what makes this area so unique. Signed: Unhappy Owner

      The disc golf course idea was presented to the City of Santee’s Community Services Department by the San Diego Aces during the Spring of 2014 after several of our members (who are Santee residents) suggested Mast Park as a good location for a course. Club members met with the City’s SPARC (Santee Parks and Recreation Committee) group several times to discuss the proposal and fine-tune the plan and design. Both the SPARC and the Santee City Council voted to approve the disc golf course at public meetings last fall.

      Disc golf is a relatively low-impact sport and you should not see much change to the open space area at Mast Park. The minimal cost incurred by the city will provide many local residents with a low-cost and low-impact recreational pastime. City staff is also expecting that regular use of that space by disc golfers will decrease the amount of vandalism and vagrancy that occurs in that portion of the park.

      We hope that you’ll give disc golf a chance and eventually see the benefits of having a course in your local park.
