Evergreen Disc Golf Course is located in Goleta, California, just west of Santa Barbara, in the Evergreen Open Space. The 18 Innova Disc Catcher baskets have been installed since September 27, 1995 and were upgraded with double chains in 2001. The course is a par 54, and is approximately 4500 feet long from the standard tees. The tees are either buried 4x4's, decomposed granite pads, or marked with yellow spray paint on existing concrete walks. There are no tee signs pointing the way through the course, so you might find the downloadable map to be helpful. Maps can sometimes be found in the map box mounted on the fence of the tennis courts, but unfortunately it is rarely stocked. There are many long tees on the course which are now marked by small black diamonds on the sidewalks, or orange stakes driven in flush with the ground in dirt areas. These are now marked on the downloadable map, however, the distances for the long tees have yet to be measured.
Caution: There is a bit of poison oak in the park, so try to keep your disc out of the underbrush! Also as with anyplace that has tall grass & shrubbery, ticks can sometimes be found, so you may want to do a quick tick inspection after finishing your round.
Proper course etiquette is important, please be courteous to other park users and players when using the course. Let faster parties play through, record your scores on the next tee box not at the baskets, and keep your groups to four people or fewer when the course is crowded. Note that holes 10 thru 13 can get congested - let the group in front play first.
When using the course, please respect the rights and safety of other park users and park neighbors. If your disc goes into someone's backyard, do not go in after it without permission or else you risk trespassing charges, and worse yet, you risk losing neighborhood support for the course, which is absolutely needed for its survival. Also, please use the trash cans located around the course
There is now a portable restroom in the park. It can be found behind the 5th tee on Evergreen Drive. Drinking water is usually available from one or both of the drinking fountains that can be found on either side of the tennis courts.
Evergreen Open Space
Other things that can be found in Evergreen Open Space are public tennis courts, a softball backstop and a small playground for children. The field is large enough to accommodate other disc sports such as Ultimate (the Black Tide sometimes practices here), DDC ( Double Disc Court), throwing MTA (Maximum Time Aloft), or just practicing your drives.
Many thanks go to Andy Schuette and Rick Nakazawa for making this course a reality. Thanks also to Vince Tobin and Dave Almcrantz for starting the original versions of this web site, and to many of the locals for all of their hard work.
