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 🙂).

2018 So Cal Championships Details

The 2018 So Cal Disc Golf Championships are coming soon – one event to a old-time favorite course that is (partly) going away and the other event to a brand new venue.

This year’s Am event will be held at La Mirada Regional Park, Sat/Sun November 10/11, 2018 – 2 rounds on Saturday and one on Sunday, alternating between the Lakeside and Backside courses.  This will probably be the last time that the Backside course will be used in a sanctioned competitive event, as that portion of the park is scheduled to become parking for the water park or a maintenance yard or some other dumb thing that isn’t an historic disc golf course.  Online registration is opening on DGU on Sunday, 10/21 at 7pm at this link:  http://www.discgolfunited.com/disc-golf-tournaments/event-detail.cfm/tourn_id/5899

The Pros will be playing the following weekend farther north, just outside of Santa Ynez at Cachuma Lake.  The Lake Cachuma course was installed earlier this year and has gotten rave reviews.  The new Mohawk course was permanently installed this past week, so the concrete tee pads will be hardened and trees ready to snag wayward throws.  3 rounds, Sat/Sun November 17/18, 2018.  Registration is also on DGU and is now open at this link:  http://www.discgolfunited.com/disc-golf-tournaments/event-detail.cfm/tourn_id/5882

Many thanks to TDs Randy Wylot and Hugh Montgomery on the Pro side and Bill Maury-Holmes and Chris Brophy on the Am side, to Innova-Champion Discs and Legacy Discs for sponsoring the events, to West Coast Disc Golf for assisting with the La Ma scheduling and Mike Byrne and crew for shepherding the Cachuma courses.

Sign up quickly, buy fundraiser discs and have fun!

 

2017 So Cal Series Champions Crowned at Colton

On a very windy day at the Colton Golf Club, 90+ So Cal disc golfers gathered to wrap up the year with a fun round of golf and a little business.  The fun round was played on the challenging 18-hole layout, which was made even tougher by the steady 10-15 mph (with gusts over 20) winds.  The Colton Golf Club also hosted our awards presentation and a brief membership meeting.

After 12 months and 21 events, Nick Newton emerged as the top points-earner in the Men’s Open division.  Nick’s points total of 294 put him 17 points ahead of second-place Chris Shotwell (277).  Eric Norbut rounded out the top three with 213 points.  Players earned points the following ways:

  • 5 points for each 18-hole round played in a tournament (that they finished.  Most 1-day tournaments counted for 10 “participation” points, with 2-day tournaments typically being worth 15 points.
  • Players received 1 point for each other player in their division that they beat or tied.  Larger fields meant more points!
  • The winning player in a division received one additional bonus point.
  • The top seven points earning events for each player counted towards their total.
  • Players received up to ten bonus points, one for each event they played in.  Only those who played in the So Cal Championships would cash in these points.

The first-place finisher in each division received a personalized Mini Discatcher basket.  The top point-earning players in each of the professional divisions also received a cash payout.  The number of players receiving payout was based on the total number of players in that division.  This year, the top players in the MPO division received a total of $710 in series-end cash.  Where did that cash come from?  Each player that played in the MPO division at a So Cal Series event in 2017 contributed $2 each time they entered a tournament.  So those $2 fees that So Cal collects go right back out to the players.

Here are the top three players in the remaining professional divisions:

  • FPO:
    • 1st place – Allison Wylot
  • MPM:
    • 1st place – Richard Ewald
    • 2nd place – Noah Rodriguez

    • 2nd place – Rick Hoffa

  • MPS:
    • 1st place – Mark Horn
    • 2nd place – Rob Wilson
    • 3rd place – Mark Hauser
  • FPS:
    • 1st place – Susie Horn

Martin Padilla played 13 events in the Men’s Advanced Amateur (MA1) division this past season, and the point totals for seven of those events were enough to give him 262 total points for the year and 1st place in the MA1 division.  Drake Avila and Drew Sodergren tied for second place, 33 points behind Martin.  There were a total of 1,894 amateur tournament entries in 2017, which led to $3,788 in merchandise being handed out to qualifying members at this year’s award ceremony.  Once again – 1,894 two dollar fees collected and paid back to members in the form of merchandise (hoodies, hats, towels, mini baskets, etc).

Here are the top three players in the remaining amateur divisions:

  • FA1:
    • 1st place – Charlotte Towle
    • 2nd place – Jennifer Burdette

SoCal’s End-of-Year Banquet!

Sign up now for the final event on the 2015 SoCal Series schedule – the 2015 SoCal Year-end Event and Banquet.

Held Saturday, December 12th at Prado Regional Park in Chino, the year-ended is your first chance to renew your SoCal membership for 2016 (pick out the best disc before anyone else!).  We’ll also play one fun round of golf on the water-lined Prado disc golf course, with prizes for finishers at the top of each third of the leaderboard (don’t ask me – Suzette has it all figured out).

We’ll share a delicious catered lunch at the Prado banquet facility (BYOB – beer is allowed…or encouraged?), followed by the crowning of the 2015 SoCal Series division champions and recognition of TD’s and volunteers.  If you’ve ever wondered where the $2 per player SoCal fee goes from each tournament, it’s right here – top finishers for each division will get either cash (Pros) or tons of cool SoCal-logo merchandise (Ams), as well as personalized mini-Discatcher trophies.

Wedged in there somewhere will be a general membership meeting, with election of officers and voting on changes to club by-laws and series points rules.  Top of the agenda this year: returning the series “participation points ” to the previous method of awarding 5 points per 18 holes played, instead of 5 points per round (which awarded only 10 points for 2-day tournaments like Wrightwood and Santa Maria, played on 27-hole courses).  This travesty of disc golf justice must be overturned!  All two-day, 54-hole tournaments should award 15 participation points!

Another great feature of the year-end event is the “Never-ending Raffle”, which costs $0 to enter and does not end until everyone in attendance has won a prize!  Don’t miss it!
