Just played opening day of East Park Reservoir. Fun new course in the foothills west of the north valley. Super hot today - play early and jump in the lake when you finish.

I just played a new one up here in McKinleyville at a local ball golf course. It's only tonepoles at the moment, but there will be baskets eventually

Is it at Beau Pre? A million years ago (or 25-30) I used to play ball golf there 20 times a year or so. It's been ten years since I've been there, but my memory tells me that there would be some pretty awesome potential DG holes there with the tight fairways and elevation changes

Does anyone know what happened to the Sun Valley course in La Mesa? It looks to be RIPed, did they remove it because it wasn't bringing in enough money? Golf players ask for it to be removed? I rather liked it, sad to see that it's dead

From a June 15, 2017 Press Release:

The City of La Mesa will be taking over the parkland known as Sun Valley Golf Course and turning it into a public park. The City of La Mesa first entered into a fifteen year lease agreement with Sun Valley Golf, LLC in 1997, to operate a ninehole executive golf course in MacArthur Park. In 2012, a five-year option extended the term to October 2017. In an effort to expand participation and increase revenue at Sun Valley, disc golf was added to the facility and most recently foot golf. Yet, the facility had seen steadily declining revenue since 2011. In October 2016, the operators, Johnny and Mary Jane Gonzalez requested early termination of the lease and have been on a month to month agreement since March 2017. They recently notified the City that they would be ending the agreement on June 30, with the last day of golf operations to be June 22.

The guys from Dynamic Discs just toured the complex last week.

Central Park DGC in Santa Clarita is being approached tomorrow to put in multiple pin locations on the front 9 and I am trying to approach Sand Canyon Country Club about putting a 18 hole course in sometime in early 2018. I am looking for a course designer in Los Angeles. If you are able to help design and modify a course please send me a message.

It is at Beau Pre. It's a pretty fun course.
