About this tournament

Things you should know:

Tournament Central will be in the brew room of SeaQuake Brewery.

Wind — You all should expect wind and waves. UPDATE: Winds will be less than usual - 7 to 12mph NNW!

Tide — Well, the ocean’s a bit pissy since some of its real estate got taken away (see history below) and we're expecting a +7.0 high tide on the day of the tournament. To give you an idea of what this means; at high tide, hole seven will have about five to eight feet of sand on which to land. Go for the 30 feet of rocks around the basket or the 20 ft. of vegetation to the right of the basket and you'll be fine. Suggested equipment: something very stable, brightly colored and to which you have no emotional attachment.

Food — We are proud to share some of CC's finest with you. Yes, you can feast at Sea Quake but if you have a flare for the exotic we have a fantastic (and reasonably priced) Thai place, Kin Khao, just down the street (corner of Hwy. 101 and Front St.) Or, if you are willing to drive a mile to the fairgrounds, you can find Juanita's most excellent food truck, which was at tournament central last year.

Lodging — If you need an abode for Friday or Saturday night, we highly recommend staying at one of these well established and vetted camping locations:

Orman Ranch & Horse Stables - close to course, cool beautiful place, private, big spruces & redwoods, showers.

Florence Keller County Campground - beautiful redwood grove, no showers.

Ruby Vandeveter County Campground - nice place, swimming in the Smith River, no showers.

Things of note
Scoring — In addition to paper scorecards, we will be helping the PDGA beta test its live, electronic scoring. Please help us work out any bugs associated with this new, and hopefully faster, way of scoring.

Park use — We have reserved the park but, since the 9th Circuit Court has ruled that homelessness is not a crime and it is a public park, we share our park with those less fortunate than ourselves. The modified 18-hole course was designed to mitigate interaction between players and the public. We will be actively informing the community of the tournament and ask that players do their best to respect and protect non-players.

ACE pot — Cash will be added to the ace pot. In the event no ACE is hit the prize will be divided equally among the four CTP runner-ups (those who don’t win the basket).

CTP competition — Following the tradition of past years, we will have a closest to the pin competition following the conclusion of the second round. Every player receives one free throw with their paid tournament entry and additional throws are available for $1 per throw. The five players closest to the basket will advance to the finals where they will have five throws (one at a time) to get closest and win a Dynamic Discs Veteran basket.

Raffle — Once again there will be a raffle with great prizes from local businesses and generous community members. Tickets are $1 each, 6/$5, 13/$10 and 25/$20.

Any questions not answered here; please post on, or call 707-954-7666.
Hope to play with ya'll in the Hospitality Round Doubles at 9 a.m., Sunday.

Course History — For the newbies, Beachfront Park’s disc golf course is on 35 acres of mostly flat terrain with subtle changes in topography. Prior to 1964 the ocean used to lap at the doors of Seaquake Brewery (tourney central). When the tsunami hit wiping out the community the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers decided they couldn't risk losing good beer again so they took the town's remains and backfilled the ocean in front of Seaquake until Beachfront Park emerged. With the addition of a jetty, pier and hundreds of locally sourced trees to create a debris barrier, oh, and some grass, Beachfront Park came into existence. Forty-seven years later Wild Rivers Disc Golf club added baskets and voilà, your tournament course.
