Reality is a poor substitute for a good fantasy!


Just finished Random Doubles at the Taylor Mountain course. The course is open and in good shape.

Crane Creek is currently closed by Parks. The course is undamaged with the exception of a bench near hole 5 and a section of the back fence. Both were at the edge of the Pressley fire and were scorched. The gate is still locked because needed personnel are a little busy at this time. We expect it to reopen soon.

Both Stafford Lake and Luchessi Park are untouched and latest reports say Lake Sonoma has also escaped damage.

We would like to express our appreciation to the members of the disc golf community for their concern and support. Many have made contributions for course maintenance and damage repair. We received several large contributions today (one of $100 and several for $20) to help in recovery. We presently have 12 baskets whose status is in question and these funds will be used in projects like these.

If you would like to make a contribution to help support our local disc golf courses, you can do so on our website (, by donating at one of our activities.

Packing up for Random Doubles @ Taylor. Air quality much improved. Be my first day outdoors since fires started.

Random Doubles tomorrow at 12 noon at Taylor! Ace Pool $164. Parks are back open and the fires are at bay, so let's go out and throw!

The 2017 UFOS Ace Race that was to have been held October 28 @ Tayor Mountain has been canceled!

Saturday Random Doubles @ Taylor Mountain is canceled due to the incredibly poor air quality. Hard to play a round in stuff like that. Hopefully, by next weekend the fires will be under control and atmosphere will improve.

Status Report: In the wake of the Sonoma Fires evacuations and destruction, George visited both Crane Creek and Sonoma Mountain this morning and the Gods of Disc Golf have been watching over us. Neither course was touched by fire. However, the air quality and visibility on both are so poor right now we can't recommend playing. Maybe by the weekend if we get some clearing winds. Our last word from Highland Springs is that they are fine. The fire was stopped on the ridge just above Low Gap. No report on Mendocino. I would guess that Lake Sonoma is good.

Random Draw Doubles tomorrow (Sat.) @ Taylor Mountain at 12 noon.

Registration for the Ace Race @ Taylor will be closed on the 15h.

This year the Ace Race comes to Taylor Mountain Regional Park!

The Ace Race is a NON-SANCTIONED just-for-the-^##@!-of-it event open to players of any skill level, whether a PDGA member or not. Players pay a minimal fee to “beta test” the newest Discraft plastic and pit their skill level against that of their friends. Each player receives a player’s package worth at least twice their entry fee and the top winner receives a “Tournament-ready” package that includes a bag, discs and everything they need to play a winning round of disc golf.

The Ace Race will be followed up with an optional round of Random draw Doubles (played across the entire course) with Ace Pool and CTP.

There will be no Taylor Random Doubles tomorrow due to the Trilogy Challenge at Taylor. We will be back next week.

Reminder: We have ended the season for the Crane Creek Handicap singles.

We have also moved the Taylor Mountain Random doubles to Saturdays @ 12 noon, so there are no mid-week weeklies at either course. This is because the parks close at sunset and with a 5pm start we can not finish by that time.

The Taylor Mountain Ace Race is open for registration on Disc Golf Scene. The Race will be held on Saturday October 28th at 10am. We must have 15 participants to hold this event.
