That would be a sweet course. I hate that you have to pay parking there on the weekends though. If you pay to play on top of that it may become an expensive course and might have to be a destination course.

Oyster Bay disc golf

yes, EBRPD has proposed a course for a former landfill in San Leandro, now known as Oyster Bay Regional Shoreline. these upcoming meetings are, officially, for public comment on the environmental report for the ~200-acre site, not just the small part that is intended for disc golf. however, we want to take every opportunity to remind the district how much we want and need another good course in the area, and what great partners we'll be in its establishment and maintenance.

at this time, the district has not decided exactly what area will be available for a course. prospects range from a windy, very boring course with virtually no obstacles (2 stars would be generous) -- to, best case, 9 or more short but reasonably appealing holes in the only "woodland" area in the park (potentially as high as 4 stars).

for more info on this proposed course, check out Oyster Bay Disc Golf on Facebook. feel free to PM me directly too.

We had our first city council meeting for the new 18 hole San Jose course at Kelley Park. I believe that it went very well. The board recognized that the land we want currently is unused and has some unwanted activities (homeless, fires, drugs). Most of the board had heard of disc golf, half of them have played, and one is an avid golfer. He said that he keeps a portable basket and discs in his car at all time. We had about 70 people from the local club out there to support us and they could tell that we are committed and did our homework. It will be re-visited by the board after the holiday break. Good progress but a lot of work left.

Updates on Oyster Bay from Facebook from Leonard:

11/14/13: Meeting went well tonight. Good turnout -- about 15-20 disc golfers, a few bike skills supporters, and about 30 neighbors and dog-walkers who are generally unhappy with the plans for decreased dog space, increased parking spaces, and potential traffic hassles. Good vibe -- nobody offering significant objections to the course, and enthusiasm/acceptance from several non-golfers.

Leonard Muise: Next step is the December Board meeting where LUPA (and course) approval is very likely. According to the invite distributed for tonight's meeting, the Board meeting will be December 17. However, staff expressed some uncertainty tonight about the date. We'll update here when we find out for sure.

I believe the upcoming meeting is on a weekday at 2pm, if I hear of any updates I will pass them along to hopefully gather a bit more support.

Thanks

GREAT video. I'm planning to share this with everyone I can who is interested in disc golf or who we've talked to in trying to get a disc golf course built in the area.

Love it Jim! Thanks for sharing. I'll have to hit that one up the next time I'm in the Bay.
