San Diego/Morley Field

I'll be in San Diego January 15th through the 22nd. A search of that area led me to believe there aren't many good courses other than Morley Field, which I'll try to hit up a few times while I'm there, and Sun Valley, which we may or may not play.

I'm planning on packing just a few discs, probably a Teebird, Buzzz, and Aviar. Are there any huge problems with that set up for those courses? Might throw in a Force if there is frequently a lot of wind in those parts or if big flare skips are particularly useful at Morley.

Are there any other must play, or particularly scenic, courses a little farther outside San Diego? We will have a car the whole time, and if there are any really awesome courses within an hour drive or so I might be able to convince my woman that it's worth the trip.

Thanks for any useful advice

I would try to play Morley before and after a Monday while you're there, they switch pin positions Monday mornings and you'll get to see a totally different layout.

Unfortunately we're flying in on a Sunday. I had hoped I'd get to see a couple of those pin positions, but I doubt I'll be able to get a round in that first day, particularly since I hear it's so busy on the weekends. I'll probably try to get out there in the morning a couple times during the week.

Kit Carson in Escondido is good, and Goat Hill in Oceanside is excellent. So if you have transportation and a little bit of time to get to either course, try them out. Especially Goat Hill which is one of my current favorites.

Bummer, ill be leaving for Virginia the 17th otherwise I could have shown you the few courses to play here in SD. Either way, morley is a must and kit Carson is a must play as well (i think its the more difficult course if the two). Goat hill like gcr_russell said is also great and loooong but costs over 10 to play alone..

10 minutes from kit Carson is a small 9 hole in san Marcos , montiel park. Not a must play, but it will help train your touch shots and has some nice elevation change.

There is also a brand new 18 hole course getting put in about 10 minutes from montiel park in Vista, ca. I don't know how much will be playable when you are in town (estimated time of completion is by the end of January), but if you send me a pm when you get to SD, I will try and let you know the latest/driving directions.

I'd be happy to go along with you to play these courses as long as I am available. I live near the Sun Valley course, though I only played it once (due to the cost and Morley being close enough for me).

I've not yet played Goat Hill, but it's on my bucket list. Kit Carson get another nod from me, as It's a great course filled with a variety of different holes.

Thanks for the info. I'll hit up Morley and Kit Carson once or twice. I'm interested in Goat Hill, but convincing my woman to play such a taxing course will be nigh impossible. I'll bring a couple more discs for rollers and max distance, just in case Maybe the opportunity to sneak away for half a day and get a round in will present itself.

Sun Valley will go on the maybe list. I'd like to play as many courses as possible but it's not really a disc golf vacation. Gotta squeeze the rounds in when I can.

^They have golf carts so even though it's the 2nd longest course in the world, it's not THAT taxing!

I'll be getting one if I play. Still, Goat Hill is probably a bit too demanding for my girl. She's not used to that type of length or elevation and would be sore for days afterwards. I don't need to listen to that while we're on vacation.

The first time I played the wife came along. I let her drive the cart, and she decided to play just a couple holes for fun, but not too much as its way way way way out of her skill level. She didnt mind relaxing in the cart and now it is my favorite course in the area for sure. If its at all possible you dont want to miss Goat Hill.
