    I noticed you’ve held an Ice Bowl Tournament in the past at the Mission Bay Golf Course. I was wondering if there are any future plans of establishing permanent disc golf baskets there?

      Hi Shawn – The best thing for you to do right now is to contact the Parks Department in Carlsbad and ask them the same question. It’s only after they hear from enough residents like yourself that they will listen to club representatives when we contact them about adding a course. Attempts have been made in the past to get a course in Carlsbad, but probably not at the right location. It’s on our radar to go back to them again soon.

        It still requires a registered TD to head the event, correct?

      • sandiegoacesdgc permalink
        May 7, 2015 1:40 pm

        There has to be a TD, but the PDGA may allow first time TDs for these leagues. We’ll ask the PDGA State Coordinator this weekend.

    I was at the tournament at Kit carson this weekend and watched my husband’s spirit get crushed. He battled for 56 holes to come out victorious by 1 stroke. He lost it all in that “final four”. I think the final four or final 9 are ridiculous. If someone battles for 3 rounds and comes out victorious, no one should have the opportunity to take that away. The open players refused to do it. They got to keep the spots they had fought for and won. Doesn’t seem like fair sportsmanship when someone can just step up and take away your win in four holes when youv’e fought so hard to get it. Just my opinion, but you should do away with that part of your sport.

    • Mark Verrochi permalink
      June 24, 2014 2:21 pm

      Hi Carla,

      The final four was something that was publicized at the time of registration. I am sorry but he didn’t come out victorious, as the event was not over after 56 holes (there were 60 to be played for the top players in each division). He should hold his head up high for his performance this weekend. He fought hard and played well.

      Collectively, the three MPO players that were in the final four decided that playing these holes would not change the outcome of the event (because the leader had a 4 stroke advantage). Maybe (in retrospect) I should have told them that they had to play. If I said they had to play, they would have without question. However, as a reward to the volunteers, I suggested to the top MPO players to go and watch the guys that helped all weekend battle the four holes for a prize.

      Finals are an opportunity for players to gain experience in pressure situations they would typically see in a bigger tournament or at Worlds. Finals happen at a lot of events and are a place for the top players to show their skills to spectators and other participants.

      Like all sports, play is to the final whistle (as Team USA found out the other day when they had to settle for a tie after leading at the end of regulation and almost 5 minutes into extra time). At our event, the final whistle blew after the final four.

      It was made aware to all players how the tournament would be played. Someone will always win and someone will always loose. By one stroke or ten, I am sure you would feel different if he had squeaked in and then was able to win. Keep the head up and feel good about performing well, winning is not everything in disc golf.

    I received a mini-disc with the number 759 on it last weekend while playing at Kit Carson for throwing closest to the pin of my group. Thanks! Is this a legit “Bag Tag”?

    • sandiegoacesdgc permalink
      July 11, 2013 2:11 pm

      Sorry, but if you look at the mini you’ll see that it is from a previous year. Each year we print new numbered bag tags, old tags can be held on for bragging rights. Each year we have some number of leftover tags at the end of the year which we pass out to players who don’t have a mini marker.

      Now, you can get a legit bag tag if you join…

    Hello All,
    I recently became a member and I’m interested in playing doubles at the courses in and around SD. Unfortunately I have no idea how to get involved or which of the games are played i.e. best shot, worst shot… Etc. or how/if the selection for teams goes. I’m newish to the game and have never played doubles. Any advise would help.

    • Mark Verrochi permalink
      April 8, 2013 2:33 pm

      Hey Ethan,

      We have doubles leages as follows:

      Saturday 9AM @ Kit Carson
      Monday 5PM @ Montiel
      Tuesday 5PM @ Kit Carson
      Wednesday and Friday at Montiel (check on for times and details)

      The doubles leagues at Kit Carson and Montiel are randomly selected best shot doubles. We divide the group into two categories (A and B) based upon skill level and always randomly match one A and one B player together. This allows everyone the chance to win. Doubles cost $5 to play. It is a great way of learning the rules of the game and meeting people that play the game.

    Hi San Diego Ace Club Members! My name is Jonathan and I started playing Disc Golf last year in January. I Love This Sport and I am getting better at it. This is my first year being a member of this great organization. I signed up mid January and received tag number 201. I played with some people at Morley Field and won tag number 56! Unfortunately I had a rematch and had to defend it and lost so I got back my 201 tag. The sad thing is that I somehow lost my tag at Morley Field about 2 weeks ago! It may have fell out my bag or maybe someone took it from my bag while I was at the P-hole(Hope not!) If anyone seen or knows what I can do to get it back please let me know! I wish I had a tag still and I want more challenges! Thanks! Happy Disc Golfing!

      Good to see you love throwing. If you got that tag last year, 2011, then that would be what you finished the year with. Hopefully someone turns it in to the pro shop. To challenge people in 2012 you need to buy a 2012 tag. Same deal, $20 for a disc and tag.

    Mast Park in Santee needs an 18 hole course. I was looking for course sites on Google Earth and thought Mast Park, behind Walmart, would be an excellent location. Some trees, next to the river, some open dirt areas and it’s already park land. It is only a couple of blocks away from the newly completed 52 freeway and the 125 freeway. Grossmont College would be just up the hill about 2 miles from there. That would help draw in lots of new players and spread the word more quickly about disc golf. Putting a course next to a local community college would light up the social networks. It would be a nice place for a third South course, Morley in North Park, Sun Valley in La Mesa and Mast Park in Santee. Santee has a better climate than El Cajon with all that heat and smog. Morley and Sun Valley are too busy and there is usually a wait at the first tee to start. There are atleast 5 courses in North County with another coming to Vista. We’re ready here in East county for our first course.

    Thank You,
    Shawn Ludlow

    Hi San Diego Aces,

    Has anyone ever been to Harry Griffith Park behind Grossmont High School in La Mesa? There is a section of the park in the back that I never see anybody using. It would be a great section of the park to make nine holes. Has anyone ever looked into this? East County San Diego needs another place to play that is FREE like North County. Just a thought!

    • sandiegoacesdgc permalink
      July 25, 2011 10:43 am

      Hi Jamie – There are no disc-specific stores in Mira Mesa or Kearney Mesa, but all of the big-box sporting good stores around here carry Innova discs, so you should be able to get an Aviar. If by Balboa you mean the area around Balboa Ave, see the previous sentence. If you mean Balboa Park (Morley Field) then the Morley Pro Shop is your best bet – they have the best selection in town.

      If you’re in North County, the SDSF Skate Shop at Kit Carson Park carries several different brands, and the pro shop at Goat Hill Golf Course in Oceanside carries Innova and DGA.

      Happy Hunting!

    Greetings, can you guys please check something for me.
    I went to the registration website to sign up for the Sun Valley Open.
    I signed up for MA1 = $50
    I am not PDGA = $10
    I am not SoCal = $5
    Service Charge = $4.50
    my total charge should be $69.50
    when I go to checkout it is giving me a final charge of $79.50 and there is a “Custom Fee” of $15.00
    Is the website charging me $10.00 twice b/c I’m not PDGA, once in the PDGA fee and again in the SoCal fee?
    Otherwise, where does the additional $10.00 come from?

    Thank you

      Hi Hawk – The San Diego Aces do not run the Sun Valley Open, so the club does not know the details of how the registration web site is set up. There should be contact information for the tournament director (David Parnell) on the registration web site. He’s the person who can answer your questions.

      Hi Andy – Welcome to San Diego disc golf! As you can see by our lead article, we have 6 courses in San Diego County, the closest to Carlsbad will be in San Marcos (3 to choose from) and Escondido. Morley Field in San Diego’s Balboa Park is a great course with a long and storied tradition, and Sun Valley in La Mesa (farthest from you) hosts one of our area’s favorite PDGA tournaments, the Sun Valley Open.

      The San Diego Aces sponsor doubles at Kit Carson Park on Saturdays @ 9am and Montiel Park Mondays @ 5:15pm – everyone is welcome. There are also weekly doubles leagues at Morley Field, which also holds a long-running monthly tournament on the third Saturday of each month.

      Please consider joining the San Diego Aces club – you can do so on this web site or in-person with a course representative (like me). The Aces have helped pay for the two most recent 18-hole courses in the area (Kit Carson Park and Cal State San Marcos)

    Does the your club or any other DG organizations here in S.D. ever put on any clinics? I’m looking to get back into DG after not playing for the last 2.5-3 years since moving here from South Lake Tahoe where I used to play a moderate amount. Never really put much effort into bettering my technique & results but would like too now. Also, anyone know any good locations to practice drives near 4S Ranch/Poway? I’m still looking around but all the fields I’ve found so far near me aren’t open to walk on’s all the time. Most of them are schools.

    Any help would be appreciated.

      Hey Mark,

      I live in Poway as well. There are quite a few parks around Poway that are large enough to practice your driving at. Hileary Park off Community, Starridge Park off of Carriage Rd, Garden Road Park off of Garden Road, and Sabre Springs park. Granted, none of these are terribly close to the 4S ranch side of town.

      Hope this helped!
