All are encouraged to come out and play on Sunday mornings between 8:30 and 10am in the disc golf weekly tournament, which includes prize money for the top placers. It takes two weeks to establish a handicap in the tourny, but the last season lasted 25 weeks so there is always time to get out there. Other ways to "get out there" include joining one of the work parties in which volunteers come out on Saturdays between 8am and 1pm during the months of February, April, June, August, October, and December to clear brush, install new features, and generally tidy up the course.
The SFDGC began in 1997 as a not-for-profit and has the goal of building permanent disc golf courses around San Francisco. The SFDGC has 619 members who are ambassadors of this "environmentally and socially beneficial sport." Disc golf can be found across the West coast, from college campuses like Oregon State to DG meccas like De Laveaga in Santa Cruz, CA. So, if disc golf just doesn't seem like your thing, grab 10 beers and get out there anyways. Heres how you get there.
