Cinco de Mayo falls on a weekend this year, this Sunday, May 5th. And if you want to play some disc golf on Cinco de Mayo, the best place to do it will be at Goat Hill in Oceanside (trust us, and course in a public park will be nearly unplayable because of picnickers). The Challenge @ Goat Hill returns for it’s third year, and this year the date was moved earlier to the weekend of May 4-5. This will be the first time that Goat Hill has hosted a 2-day disc golf event and it will be a big one. 80-100 players are expected, and sign-ups are still available on DiscGolfU.com.
One bit of bad news: no carts. Goat Hill currently does not have enough carts to assure all players of having a cart and PDGA rules state that if all players can’t have a cart, no one can have a cart. But there’s more than enough good things to outweigh that. One round per day allows time for side events. After Saturday’s round there will be a separate cash doubles round, with bring-your-own partner rules. There will be three divisions, based on PDGA player rating (under 1800 combined, 1800-1899 combined, 1900 and over combined). After awards are handed out on Sunday will be the return of the Voodoo Disc Golf Final 4 Challenge – 4 Pros, 4 raffle winners, 4 holes, 4 $100 skins. And the raffle winners also get a prize from Voodoo Disc Golf.
There’s a great list of sponsors, which means players will be treated to great player packs and prizes: Innova Disc Golf, DiscGolfValues.com, Vodoo Disc Golf, Legacy Disc Golf, DGA, West Coast Disc Golf, San Diego Aces and Diabolo Beverages.
A few spots were left as of Monday afternoon (4/29), you can sign up at DiscGolfU.com. There is a lot of information being posted and discussed on the event page on Facebook – check it out: The Challenge @ Goat Hill – Cinco de Goat-o
