Great Disc Golf Courses Of The World

DeLaveaga Park

Santa Cruz, Ca

This weeks great course takes us to Santa Cruz, Ca and the historic Delaveaga park or better known as DELA. There has been so much said about this course but the one thing I know is there is not a single tee shot on this course that is not fun. Fair may not be a word to describe DELA but I guarantee you when you get done with a round there the first thing you will want to do is play it again.

DeLaveaga SSA

All holes are considered par 3 at DeLaveaga Disc Golf Course. In the long pin arrangement the SSA for DeLa is usually close to a par round (depending on conditions). Therefore, a par round at DeLaveaga in the longer set-up is roughly equivalent to a 1000-rated round.

4. Hole 6

Hole 6 is the first hole I really look forward to playing and who wouldn't like a a 413ft hole that you can throw a putter or midrange to.

3. Hole 17 Gravity

Hole 17 is one of my favorite holes at DELA. Throw for the ace and hope to save par throw away from the basket and play the hill like John Baldwin and tap in for a two.

2. Hole 27

"DeLaveaga’s hole 27 is truly the “Top of the World,” and is perhaps the most famous disc golf hole on the entire planet Earth (the 3 pin locations for this hole are indicated in the above image). Originally the 3rd hole of the 1984 course, this hole combines challenges of altitude, distance, and wind with some notable limitations in available lines from the tree-scape. There is no question that familiarity breeds competence on this hole, and it is one of several holes at DeLaveaga that is commonly viewed as favoring local players. It is common for locals to throw their entire bag on 27 at the end of a practice round. Errant throws from Top of the World are common, and it is important for safety reasons to call out “fore” and the number of the hole (or parking lot) the errant throw is going toward.
