  • I went to Twila-Reid in Orange county

    Just after Thankgiving my family and I went to Disneyland and while there I thought I would get a round in at a wonderful sunny local DG park. The closest one is Twila-Reid park. It sucked bad. Imagine rockwood with picnic tables 10 feet from most of the holes and people everywhere woh are completely oblivious to the fact that golfers are throwing discs. On more than one occasion kids picked up my discs like they had never seen them. One of my throws was just GONE. I couldn't find my disc anywhere and it is open short grass .. no way to lose the disc .. so I walked over to the playground equipment and looked around to find the kid who stole my disc. It turns out some grandma picked it up and stuck it in her purse. I saw the edge sticking out. I asked her for it back and she didn't even say anything so I had to reach in and take it LOL. She never even moved, she just looked at me with an odd glance and that was it.

    The holes were not clearly marked and I think basket 1 was just missing altogether. It was all basically straight open shots, so no diversity. The good news is that while it was 40 degrees and raining here I was in CA where it was 75-85 degrees and sunny!

        No, you used an intimidating, young, male thug figure. Did you at least give her a lottery ticket for finding your disc?

          yeah, and I thanked her for finding my disc about 10 feet from the basket and walking off with it.

          Edit: And actually I have photos of the throw she picked up .. the reason she got it is because we were doing some action shots and so it took us a few minutes to make it to the hole.

            There are MULTIPLE 9 hole courses spead thruout the LA basin that are very similar to that one. Most have been in the ground for nearly 30 yrs and were some of the earliest EVER installed.

            They actually used that course for a Junior Worlds 15 yrs ago or so.

              I need directions to La Mirada and a hook-up with a name of someone who can show me around down there one Friday morning/afternoon coming up. Thoughts, Mike?
              ďI believe I can hit 18 greens, hit every fairway, you know ó Vision 54, which means you birdie every hole, thatís in the back of my mind. I want to putt better, chip better. That day when I hit 18 greens and one putt, Iíll know Iím a complete golfer. Will that ever happen? Iím not sure, but itís possible. The 54 vision is always in the back of my mind.Ē

                    Actually... looks like it might be Sylmar/Ventura day one (could be a weekly in Ventura that Friday...). Maybe Chavez Ravine or Oak Grove on day two.

                        Sylmar.... 1st DiscGolf course I ever played.
                        NOW a Rico Family re-design and some of the SWEETEST tee pads you will EVER find anywhere. Thats what comes with owning a Concrete business.

                        Pay to Play but NOT much $2-$3 max per day.....

                        OH and DUGGER FAN...Its Chavez RIDGE where Disc Golf is played.

                          Sorry... Chavez Ridge. I didn't think that they were gonna let me throw from home plate to see if I could reach a bullpen...

                              I only played Sylmar once and that was before I was as serious about DG as I am now...I'm thinking it was 2003-2004? I don't think it was pay to play then (at least I don't recall paying anything) and I wasn't that impressed with it from what I remember, has it changed since then? One of my friends moved down there briefly and said it was a cool course though, so I'd like to see it again.

                              The Ventura course is sweet though (actually Ojai), and it's pay to play, but well worth it. My favorite course in So-Cal. I don't know where you're staying in LA, but depending on your location, it's not exactly a quick drive to get there. I'd definitely recommend going, but it might not be feasible to squeeze in two courses in one day.
