Verdugo Hills Disc Golf Course, CA

This course needs our support! Verdugo Hills (ball) Golf Course in Southern California has put in nine Disc Golf baskets with 2 tee off pads for each for a limited trial period. The trial period is up on December 8th, 2011 so get out there and play it. If all goes well, they plan to add 9 more baskets for a complete 18 hole course.

Nestled in Tujunga Canyon with beautiful mountain views on both sides, Verdugo Hills Golf Course is a par 3, 18 hole ball golf course. The immediate advantage of dropping in Disc Golf baskets in is you already have the course designed and manicured, ready to play. The course is open 6:30am to 9:30pm with lights for night golf and there is a $5 fee for as much golf as you can play that day. There is a 6pm Monday weekly with talks of bringing the Oak Grove and Sylmar weeklies there for a few winter weeks to take advantage of the lit course.

The big test is sharing the tee box with ball golfers. I'm told that so far all is well as the majority of ball golfers are letting the disc golfers play through (depending on group size, which the course wants to maintain at a 5 person max) due to disc golf play moving quicker.

The distances are medium to short, but with a interesting added challenge: all the ball golf greens are O.B. Accuracy is definitely rewarded.

Hole 8 was a stand out for me.
Throwing downhill with O.B. ball greens on either side of the basket and trees in front of it.

The 2 tee off spots for each basket give you a very enjoyable 18 holes of disc golf with rolling hills and tree lined open fairways. The $5 fee didn't bother me one bit because it was a real treat playing such well manicured course. Big thumbs up and hopefully this course will continue on past the trial period.

For those visiting SoCal, you couldn't ask for a better locating too. Smack dab between the classic Oak Grove and the top notch Sylmar courses, all along the 210 freeway. 3 great courses in one day easy.
