Disc Golf has been played at Morley Field since 1978 when Snapper Pierson first established the course. Snapper is “Course Pro” and “Disc Golf Hall of Fame” member and he made Morley Field one of the original Disc Golf courses in the world.
The course is located right up the hill from Downtown San Diego, perfect for the Downtown San Diego Condo and Downtown San Diego Loft home owner, resident and visitors, a few miles from the San Diego Intl. Airport, San Diego Harbor, Coronado, and directly across from the San Diego Zoo.
There is plenty of parking coming up the hill from Downtown San Diego right off Pershing Drive, but for the busy day, park behind the course instead. Just continue Pershing Drive and take the first and second left. As you enter the course you can see the “Morley Field Pro Shop” where you pay the course fee, rent discs, get a snack and grab a score card.
Morley Field is open for the public from dusk to dawn all year around except for the Southwestern Disc Golf Team Tournament held in the beginning of December and the Spring Fling held in May. Weekdays cost $2,50 for the whole day to play and on weekends and holidays $3.
There are 19 holes to be played with usual par 3. Pin positions change each Monday and there are 3 to 6 positions for each hole. There’s a lot of locals and experienced disc golfers there all the time and they are all more than happy to give you a helping hand with finding your next t-pad or if you have any questions in regards on how the game works.
