From the PDGA event page:

“The 2020 United States Women Disc Golf Championships is coming to Northern California on May 21-24, 2020.  Up to 216 women disc golfers, of all ages are coming from all over the United States to compete. The tournament will be held at Orangevale, Rocklin, and  Auburn disc golf courses.  We are also expecting over 100+ volunteers and lots of spectators.”


The 2020 United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship will take place at three popular Sacramento area disc golf courses in the Placer Valley area.

Shady Oaks Disc Golf Course- Orangevale CA

Shady Oaks is in Orangevale, a city in the Sacramento metro area.  Established in 1982, Shady Oaks is arguably the most popular course in the Sacramento/Northern California area.  The 18 holes wind through a public nature park with dense trees, winding creeks bordering many fairways, and a strong mix of wooded technicality and wide-open fairways open for letting loose.  Shady Oaks has been the home of the St. Patrick’s Day Classic, the NorCal Championships, and the California Amateur State Championships for many years now, and provides an excellent pro shop on-site in the Final 9 Sports disc golf retailer.

Rocklin Disc Golf Course – Rocklin, CA

Rocklin Disc Golf Course is a fairly open yet still technical 18 hole course founded in 1984 and is a short trip further east on I80 from Orangevale.  The course starts fairly open but then throws you into a bit of the woods before giving another chance to go for distance.  This pattern repeats throughout the course, providing some very rewarding holes forcing a player to deal with murky creeks in exchange for birdie opportunities.  Like Shady Oaks, there is a Final 9 Sports location on-site with a stocked selection of discs and accessories.

Auburn Regional Park – Auburn, CA

Continuing further east up I80 gets you heading into the foothills and in the direction of Auburn Regional Park, a gorgeous and challenging 18 hole course started in 1980.  The course immediately lets you know it’s serious about testing your skills with a downhill couple of holes through some intimidating woods followed by a steep uphill before getting into a few open long fairways.  Auburn provides a scenic mix of technical and wide-open holes but will not hesitate to punish you on nearly any of them.
