New California courses update thread

So Cali needs a thread that people can post in when they know of new courses opening or in the works or just heard about proposals.

Here are a couple I have heard or read, common, but hopefully more people can post more info.

Lang Ranch in Thousand Oaks

McClatchy Park in Sacramento (opening soon)

Miners Point in Junction City ( just about done, a few weeks away)

Feeney Park in Murphy's ( just finished, I will take pictures this weekend)

Gibson Ranch regional park, ( epic course in temp setup, we just need updates on how the fundraising is going)

Yucaipa Back 18 hole course in Yucaipa ( fences and some property issues have delayed this, course is approved. Looking for late 2013 installation)

Half Moon Bay has a proposal in for a new course and map layout on there club page.

Bean Creek in Scott's Valley has been laid out ( had a few problems over certain areas of land. Hoping for spring-summer 2013 install

Jewett Park in Arvin ( Bakersfield suburb, park is being built with a 9 hole course. Map of layout is done and its been long approved.

Walnut Creek (current DGCR member is working on this course)

Fiddyment park in Roseville (we need a follow up to see if the course that was approved there will ever go in. Last update I knew of was 2 years ago. A lot of delay because of funds and land rights issues.)

Anna Jean Cummings park in Soquel has a proposal in and the local disc golfers are fighting for a course along with the local high school pushing for it.

McLaren park in San Francisco ( I saw a new course layout was sent to the city after a few we're rejected or weren't good for some locals against disc golf. Project has been gaining ground lately. Started in 2007ish

So those are a few I could think of, please post more or give details on any you know of.

That is a great list. I am close to Anna Jean Cummings (Blue Ball Park), Bean Creek and Half Moon Bay. I hope to hear about updates so that I can volunteer some of my time to help with install if needed, also excited to hear about the others. It is always nice to have new courses to switch things up a bit.

CR Crescent City has had a lot of issues trying to put in a course there. One of the teachers there was / is very much against it. They had a couple of tone poles in a while ago. I had a friend that was living near there, and when I went to see him, I saw the tones. I called my buddy Ron there in CC and he told me the story on it. That there were only a few tone poles as a remnant of what they had tried to put in. He said they were still trying to work on it, and that the teacher who was so against it, was supposed to be retiring soon. Hopefully he has retired and now they are getting the course in.

We got a local ski resort(no name until next spring) to put a course in next springs budget. According to Getty( nor cal course designer) it has potential to be Tahoes best course. I will update as info changes. I'm very excited about this and the main person in charge at this resort is all for it.

Nice to hear. Getty is a great course designer. I can't wait. Love me some Tahoe golf, and a new best is something to look forward to.

McLaren Park isn't happening any time soon. There'll be a new course at China Peak (huntington lake east of fresno) by next summer that is apparently going to be an epic 27 holer.

I talk to Ron today and he gave me the update about both universities. He said work on the Redwood college course would start this year. So that's exciting and he said that Brooking has an agreement already in place. Should be nice additions to the area.

Craig Getty is designing that course also. He laid the flags for it a couple of weeks ago.
