About TJ

I lived in Santa Cruz for 16 years and first learned how to play disc golf at DeLa. After falling in love with disc golf I started running tournaments including my own Ice Bowl and the Masters Cup for 5 years. A position opened up at work that allowed me to move back to the NW. I didn’t want to go back to Seattle (way less 49er fans, but not enough disc golf), so I relocated to Portland. If I was leaving DeLa, it was going to be for Milo and Pier Park. After being in Portland for a while I noticed the lack of disc golf on golf courses here so I took what I learned working with the City of Santa Cruz Parks Department and the DeLa Municipal Golf Course and applied it up here. I designed an 18 hole course on the Rose City Golf Course here and started a summer league as a proof of concept for the city parks department. Now, starting in 2020, Mach VII baskets are going in the ground for the first permanent disc golf course on a golf course in Portland.
