Shout out to all the staff and volunteers this weekend. Way to pull off a phenomenal event. Hope this format for Masters Cup sticks around for years to come. Thank you team for all your hard work. It truly paid off!


Kelly Williams    April 23 at 1:37am

David Coon or Stephen White. I don’t think either of you finalized our scores, judging by what I see at PDGA. Just a few more clicks!

Ron(Bonehead) Jones   April 23 at 1:52am

Now you did it. 2 strokes for all. (ask me how I know)

Kelly Williams   April 23 at 2:58am

There were connectivity issues at the time. Maybe understandable.

Rich Puente    April 22 at 10:22pm

Rich Puente lost his Maui Jim sunglasses (brown) between 1-2:30 pm at Dela

If they can be turned in at Lost and found it would be greatly appreciated

Tee times for 2nd Round Pinto? Hopefully not being impatient

Ian Sun   April 21 at 3:53am

Just emailed

Dolan McElmurry   April 21 at 12:00pm

Todd Williams    April 20 at 3:12am

I noticed iam on a card for tee time but I withdrew from tournament weeks ago

Ian Sun   April 20 at 3:15am


Rad Roberts    April 20 at 12:19am

How often will Dela shuttles run? Trying to figure out how much time from car to course. Thanks for all you and the team are doing!

Ian Sun   April 20 at 3:14am

10-15 mins

David J Branson    April 19 at 9:22pm

What is the expected/projected rating for even par in these layouts at DeLa and Pinto?

David "DRoc101" Ralston   April 19 at 9:31pm

Over 9000

Jimmy Phillips   April 19 at 9:57pm

Usually depending on the field… par is about 1000 rated

Mariano Hernandez    April 18 at 5:16pm

Is there any place to camp out that way near the courses?. Can anyone recommend some spots in the area.

Marty Hapner   April 18 at 7:11pm

Call Jerrod Thompson- 831-539- 5236 for information regarding camping. He is close to Pinto Lake, but it is a bit of a drive to DeLa.

Rob Hapner   April 20 at 3:46am

Camping: - New Brighton State Beach: Excellent coastal location + facilities ($35+) - Henry Cowell Redwoods State Park: Sleep amongst the giants ($35+) - Santa Cruz Redwoods RV Resort: Near redwoods + river ($45+)

David "DRoc101" Ralston   April 18 at 5:46pm

Henry Cowell has a campground near the course, I think they book pretty solid, though

Andrew Riggs    April 17 at 9:00pm

Is there a policy or process for having someone walk the course with the card and/or caddying?

Marty Hapner   April 17 at 9:30pm

I don't know of any particular policy, but it is common for players to have a single caddy and sometimes that caddy will keep scores provided the group approves.

Danny Austin    April 17 at 4:23pm

LOOKING FOR A RIDE From Seaside. I'm coming in from Denver and my wife wants the car. My tee time is 11:21.


CR Gonzales    April 17 at 1:36am

Hey Is the parking lot going to be on the right as you pass the ball golf club house, or down at the ball fields on Branciforte. Just want to make sure I know how far my walk in is( I have a cart so no shuttle for me. )

Dolan McElmurry   April 17 at 12:29pm

the parking if I am correct is going to be at the Stroke Center, it's past the lake on the right of the Ball Golf Course.

David J Branson   April 17 at 11:38pm

Google says ~17 min, 0.8mi walk from Santa Cruz Shakespeare to DeLa.

Matt Marquess    April 14 at 5:15pm

For those curious about the 4 Temporary Holes at Pinto. Here is a video walkthrough of them. https://youtu.be/Jv22-WswiHk

Talia Delanoy   April 17 at 6:42pm

These were all so helpful! Thank you so much

Breanna Nelson    April 14 at 1:56am

The email says no smoking/drinking at all at the venue. Is that just for DeLa, or Pinto as well? Or will pinto be no smoking after 2 minute warning until scores turned in?

David "DRoc101" Ralston   April 14 at 2:19am

All PDGA sanctioned events are no-smoking/drinking

Ron(Bonehead) Jones   April 14 at 2:42am

Glad to see they have their priorities straight. /s

Breanna Nelson   April 14 at 2:55pm

I know that the events are no smoking or drinking. But usually it’s from the 2 minute warning to turning in scores (during the actual play). But DeLa is no smoking/drinking for the entire disc golf venue/property. So I was just wondering if Pinto is the same.

Dylan Coe    April 6 at 9:08pm

How early will the courses be in the tournament positions? And will there be temp holes at pinto to get that course to 24 holes? Just so I can plan a trip to get a practice round in.

Ian Sun   April 9 at 3:48pm

Both courses are in the tournament layouts, but there is still some final work to be done, mowing etc...

Ian Sun   April 9 at 3:48pm

Caddy book will be sent out soon, but you can view udisc for now.

Dylan Coe   April 9 at 8:16pm

Thanks Ian

Matt Marquess    April 6 at 4:47pm

I did a course walkthrough of Pinto recently. For those who haven't played it recently you can check it out here. Enjoy!

Dolan McElmurry   April 6 at 5:56pm

thanks, would be interesting to look at. I have played Pinto many times and each time it kicks my butt!

Matt Marquess   April 9 at 4:57am

Part 2 for those that want a walkthrough of Pinto https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nfGYZyF1inc

Matt Marquess    April 4 at 5:36pm

Any idea as to the basket layout at each course?

Matt Marquess   April 4 at 11:30pm

Great! I see that for Dela, but what about Pinto?

Geoff Goss   April 6 at 2:59pm

Will the pinto layout be the same as the reunion masters layout?

Ian Sun   April 9 at 3:49pm


William pollard    April 1 at 1:48am

Hi I am waitlisted in ma1 and I would like to be switched to ma2 if possible, thank you!

Ian Sun   April 1 at 5:23am


kelly knight    March 28 at 5:28pm

Is there a rough outline on the order of divisions teeing off on Thursday?

Ian Sun   April 3 at 3:11pm


Dave Linger   April 13 at 7:03pm
