Santa Cruz Mayor Makes Ceremonial First Throw at San Lorenzo Park
San Lorenzo Park’s new Bridge-to-Bridge 9-hole disc golf course is now open! Santa Cruz Mayor Don Lane came out to make the ceremonial first throw this week. Tee areas are now installed, the baskets are in, and the fairways are cleared. This is a shorter course (200′ or less on every hole) that is friendly to beginners and also makes for great upshot practice for experienced players. All holes are par 3. Come out and see how many birdies you can score!
The DeLaveaga Disc Golf Club and Santa Cruz City Parks & Recreation presents
SAN LORENZO PARK DISC GOLF FESTIVAL!
We are very excited to announce this inaugural event co-sponsored by the City of Santa Cruz. The new nine hole course at San Lorenzo Park is not only a great place to get in a quick round on your lunch break, but it’s also the perfect venue to hold teaching clinics!
The focus of this festival is FUN!
This is a perfect opportunity to invite all of your friends and neighbors out to learn more about Disc Golf and how to play the game. We will be holding clinics all day long and there will be plenty of experienced players on hand to offer expert advice.
Clinics: 10am; 11am; 12noon; 1pm; 2pm
Setting the course record
There is no official course record score at this time. After the festival is over – there WILL BE! You can play the course as many times as you want to get your best score for a 9 hole round and an 18 hole round. Not happy with your score? Play it again!
Ring of Fire
“Ring of Fire” is when many people throw a disc at the same basket at the same time. This will be ongoing throughout the day at 10:30; 11:30; 12:30; 1:30 and 2:30 Prizes will be awarded to all winners!
Mini Disc Golf
Mark Karleskind will be setting up a 9 hole “mini” disc golf course. Just like regular Disc Golf, you navigate the course trying to get the lowest score possible playing with miniature discs. You can play it as many times as you want. It’s a lot of fun and great for kids!
More events and activities may be added so check back here frequently for more information!

DDGC Raises Funds to Support UCSC Disc Golf Team
The DDGC March Monthly Tournament was a fundraiser to help send the UCSC Disc Golf Team to the Nationals. The UCSC Disc Golf Team was able to raise $500 in donations from this event. At the West Coast College Open the UCSC team placed third which clinched a qualifying bid for the Collegiate National Championships at the Hippodrome facility in South Carolina. Because they are all starving college students the DeLeaveaga Disc Golf Club is helping fund their travel expenses for this event, allowing them to represent Santa Cruuuuuuuz in the Championships!
