2023 T. Ske California Cup

NorCal vs Socal Invitational Team Disc Golf Tournament

The T. Ske CA Cup NorCal vs. SoCal Invitational Team Disc Golf Tournament will be February 4 – 5, 2023 at beautiful Waller Park in Santa Maria.

This tournament which has been going since 1998 was the brainchild of Innova’s cofounder, Tim Selinske. It has been generously supported by Innova since it began.

The tournament format is loosely based on golf’s Ryder Cup. It’s two rounds of singles match play, and two rounds of best-shot doubles match play.

Interesting fact (or folklore?): the first tournament utilizing doubles match play started with the T. Ske CA Cup.

Each team will have 40 players: six MPO, two FPO, six MP40, four MP50, one FP40, three MP60, six MA1, two FA1, six MA2, two MA40, and two MA50.

Invitations will be based on the the Series points totals, but there will also be team captain picks.

This year the first invitations will go to the top five MPO, one FPO, five MP40, three MP50, two MP60, five MA1, one FA1, five MA2, one MA40, and one MA50.

The team captain picks will be based on ratings; Series points; a desire to include a sprinkling of Santa Maria locals; intangibles like team chemistry, volunteer work, promotion of disc golf; and the number of division positions available and the depth of participants in the division.

Invitees will be announced at the SoCal Awards Saturday, December 10.

Invited or not, if you are committed to play, rain or shine, send me a message or email me at RabbitFlatsDGC@gmail.com. I often need last minute replacements.

Historically, I shuffle players quite a bit including putting players in divisions that they may not routinely play. For example you may get invited because of your points in MP40, but you could play MPO.

SoCal Disc Golf club will again be paying the player entry fees. You won’t win any money at this tournament, but you will get cool tournament swag, a great weekend of disc golf with friends, and hopefully another year of bragging rights. 😄

Most participants say this is the funnest tournament of the year!

We tee at noon on Saturday and play two 18-hole rounds back to back, nonstop: first singles, then doubles.

On Sunday we tee at 9 AM, with the same format.

When you finish Sunday, you’ll be treated to the finest of Santa Maria hospitality including a wonderful tri-tip BBQ.

Scoring details:

You’ll receive one point for each hole that you win. The player with the most points after 18 holes wins the match.

If you win the match you are awarded one point for Singles (1/2 for a tie), and your doubles team will receive two points for winning a hole, or one point for a tie.

All match points are then added up to determine which team goes home with the Perpetual Bucket Trophy🏆 for the year, (which SoCal currently holds 🙂).

–Mike Byrne, SoCal DGC Captain
