Disc Golf Course to Open in Ladera

In March Ladera Ranch residents will have a new outdoor amenity to enjoy – a nine-hole disc golf course.

Next month Ladera Ranch residents will have a new outdoor amenity to enjoy – a nine-hole disc golf course. As residents seek new ways to enjoy the outdoors, this addition by LARMAC is a welcome attraction that appeals to all age groups including children, teens, adults and active seniors.

The course is located in the passive greenbelt open space between Sienna and Cambridge (across from the orange groves) in Covenant Hills. It runs along the Yukon Riley trail which under the SCE power lines. Street parking is available along Cambridge. 

The casual play course was designed by Jeff Spohr, a former pro disc golfer who designs courses, manages professional disc golf tournaments, and advises municipalities on disc golf course design.

LARMAC Board President, Chase Fitzpatrick, notes that the course was designed with alternate positions for each hole to keep the course fresh by alternating the locations of the baskets – similar to moving positions of holes on the greens in golf (e.g. from the front to the back of a green).

LARMAC’s Operations Team, which includes a maintenance crew, installed the disc catchers (holes) in order to minimize costs. The investment in the equipment and consultation was just over $5,500 and was paid from operating funds.
