Plans to hold the North Coast Showdown this May have officially been scrapped.
There has been little perceived interest in the tournament in the current economic climate.
In truth, the DGO have become so focused in the continues success and advancement of the Crane Creek course and activities held there that we have had little time to devote to anything else.
Instead, we have elected to merge plans for the North Coast Showdown with efforts to revive the Pro Am Jam which had been scheduled to be cancelled this year.
So, the (now defunct) KOA Pro Am Jam will be reborn as the UFOS Pro Am Jam and will be a joint DGO/UFOS project taking over the Showdown venue. Please visit the UFOS Site for details.
This event is strictly limited to 150 players so we recommend early registration to assure a spot. Please also check our Cancellation and waiting list policy.
You can register online at either our online reservation page or via the PDGA online reservation site.
Camping spots will be available for reservation at the
Chekaka Recreation Area Lake Mendocino (CA)
Extra activities (TBD) and awards will take place at the Lake Mendocino group site on Sunday.
