Santa Cruz’s DeLaveaga Disc Golf Course, which will host the Master’s Cup from April 26-28, is considered one of the top destinations in the world for disc enthusiasts. This is an overview of the course written by Ben Baker, winner of the 2012 NorCal Championships in the intermediate division.
DeLaveaga Disc History
DeLaveaga Disc Golf Course was created to host the World Disc Championships in 1984. The course was designed by Disc Golf Hall of Famer Tom Schot, who took full advantage of the environment, incorporating the numerous trees, ravines and rolling hills of the land into one of the most celebrated courses in disc golf history.
Originally only 18 holes, the course now has 28 permanent holes, with a 29th hole still used in tournament play. Every single hole holds its own against some of the most difficult and unique in the world, making for a challenging yet enjoyable experience for players of all skill levels.
