MPO/FPO Registration is available!

Registration for the A-tier side of The Challenge at Goat Hill Park – Driven by Innova is available on DiscGolfU.com (click here). The A-tier side of the tournament will be playing three days – Friday, May 3rd through Sunday, May 5th, 2019. The Goat Hill Park tournament, a Disc Golf Pro Tour Test Event and USDGC qualifier, will have three days of next-day video coverage by Central Coast Disc Golf and three days of UDiscLive scoring to highlight the professional players competing at our event.

Plans are underway to create a destination event at Goat Hill Park. All registered players are invited to a Welcome Players party at the Goat on Friday night where we will provide food, tunes, disc games, a freestyle Frisbee show from 5-time PDGA Women’s Champion Juliana Korver and 21-time World Freestyle Champion Dave Schiller, and a glorious Oceanside sunset. We’ll also have a selection of San Diego’s finest craft beers for a nominal charge. We’re developing a list of local “host homes” for touring players looking for an economical place to stay or park their touring vehicle and we’re working with VistOcenside.org to find reasonably-priced hotels if you’re so inclined.

We will be advertising for and encouraging spectators at this year’s event – focusing on kids from local schools on Friday and opening up for spectators of all ages over the weekend. We’ll have food vendors available all three days of the tournament and a full vendor experience on Saturday and Sunday, including table space for touring players wanting to sell their own fundraising discs and merchandise.

Join us at the Goat! We’re snuggled right between the Glass Blown Open and the San Francisco Open on your tournament calendar. Contact Tournament Director Allen Risley with any questions you may have.

The Road to Winthrop Gold Goes Through Goat Hill Park!

Big news for The Challenge! The Challenge at Goat Hill Park – Driven by Innova has been added to the list of USDGC Qualifier Events for 2019! The top five finishers in MPO at The Challenge who have not already qualified for the 2019 USDGC by May 3-5 will be awarded invitations to the United States Disc Golf Championship, held at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina.

This is the first time that an event held in Southern California has been tapped to award USDGC invitations since the glory days of the Golden State Classic at La Mirada. We at The Challenge are pleased and honored to have this opportunity and are deep into the process of preparing an event worthy of qualifying players for one of disc golf’s premier events. We can assure the USDGC organizers that the five players who move on to Rock Hill from Goat Hill will have been tested by distance, elevation change, wind and tough pin positions.

2019 USDGC Qualifying Events

If you’re a touring PDGA pro player we hope you decide to accept The Challenge and come to Oceanside, CA on the weekend of May 3-5, 2019. Take the southern route from Emporia to San Francisco – the combination of USDGC invitations, CCDG next-day coverage, UDisc Live scoring, ample payout, San Diego craft beer and beautiful Goat Hill Park sunsets will make it worth your while.
