Flying Deuces Disc Golf Club
The Flying Deuces is a group of object disc golfers who have been playing Disc Golf in Santa Clara County, California, since 1977. We have functioned with no club dues or officers that whole time. Our philosophy is that disc golf is an inexpensive and fun past time. For a $7-8 investment per disc you can play for pretty much for free until your disc(s) wears out, either by breaking or becoming lost or unretrievable.
Club members have designed over two dozen object courses with 18 targets through out the city and county parks system. Since these are public parks and subject to heavy use by the public for picnicking and recreation, we play early in the morning to avoid crowd traffic. Often the fairways are quite wet with dew at that time of the morning. We're finishing up our play by 9-9:30AM
The Flying Deuces play every Saturday morning at 7:30AM at
a different park somewhere in the Silicon Valley area. A schedule
of playing sites is published for a year in advance, so you
always know where we'll be meeting to play. The Winner
of the Week gets first tee honors the following Saturday.

Occasionally, a club tournament is held, usually consisting of 2-4 eighteen hole rounds. The winner gets to take the traveling trophy home until the next tournament. Our first club tournament was held in the Spring of 1978. At that time, the traveling club trophy was unveiled and has passed from winner to winner ever since. After we engraved names on all four sides of the base, we added a new base extension with four new sides for the names of tournament winners.

A collection of old Flying Deuces newsletters, documents, letters, invitations, et cetera were digitized and organized at the Flying Deuces Document Archives. Coming soon: A History of the Flying Deuces.

This web site was initially created with Adobe PageMill v1.0 in 1997. Updates over time were done with Adobe PageMill versions 2 and 3. Eventually PageMill was discontinued and small basic changes were done with SeaMonkey, an open source web editor. Today BBEdit/Text Wrangler is being employed to edit web pages for this site.
Geocities was the first free host site where this site found a home. Yahoo closed down the Geocities web site and the Flying Deuces web site "went" offline" for a while. The web site was migrated to being hosted on an Apple service called Dot Mac. That was renamed to MobileMe, and then discontinued in 2012, making this site homeless again. Currently, the site has been resurrected on AlterVista.org, a free web hosting service in Italy.
