The fires did not effect the course, lots of smoke sure but never in danger from either fire.

The last couple trips there were a bit scary. Mandatory evacuations were pretty close. But the course is fine. Hope to see some of you there October 23rd.

I will be adding 4-5 courses to the database today. I was able to check out 8 courses this past weekend. 2 already listed and 5 I can add plus a cool private course I will discuss in here this week.

Oyster Bay Disc Golf Course opened on October 10, 2021 in San Leandro. It's a 18-hole course with two tees and two baskets on every hole -- that's right, two baskets, not just two sleeves. Which means there are 72 unique tee shots every day!

This is the first course in the East Bay Regional Park District, a two-county district with 75 parks and over 100,000 acres under management. We first proposed a course to EBRPD in 1977. You might say it took a while to get it done. (Also, the district has been a great partner on this project.) They consider it a pilot project, so we're very hopeful that it goes well and leads to more courses.

It's an unusual site. It's a big course by Bay Area standards, around 30 acres. Several par 4s. But the course is only a small part of this ~200-acre park, a former landfill right along the San Francisco Bay, overlooking the Oakland International Airport.

When we started installation a few years ago, there were only a couple trees on the course, plus a few holes with coyote brush and other scrub. The district planted ~300 trees in 2020 and 2021. The trees are still small, so they don't present much of an obstacle yet -- except for the protective screens. But the course has a fair amount of elevation change (26 out of 72 tees or baskets are elevated!), several unique rock features (two fake lakes and one fake creek), and two big "pyramids" (tiered greens). And, of course, the course often has a lot of wind, given its location right along the Bay. It may not have a lot of obstacles, but it's not as wide open or boring as you might think.

The views are amazing.

The walk from the parking outside the park is long -- roughly 1/2 mile.

There's no drinking water in the park, and only a couple pit toilets.

I just added Redwood Run Disc Golf Course in Boulder Creek. It's at the Boulder Creek Golf Club.

I am not sure if I should have added it as a 27 hole course or 18. Since the 2020 CZU fire only 18 are in play.

Excellent course. I look forward to going back.
