The average high for Rociada in April is around 60 with average lows near 30. It is a mountain climate situated at 7500ft elevation so be prepared for anything!!

 Lodging Check In

If you are staying at Pendaries, you may check in between 9:00am-5:00pm at the Lodge Office located next to the Bar. You may check in after 5:00pm at Pendaries Bar.

 What to eat and drink?

Pendaries Restaurant will be open Thursday-Sunday from 5:00-8:30pm with the bar remaining open into the night! We will be providing a gourmet dinner to all players on Saturday evening. The Caddie Shack Snack Bar will be open for breakfast each morning at 7am. The Caddie Shack is located in the pro shop near hole #1

Local Services

Rociada is a small town with limited services. I highly recommend you bring everything you may need with you when you arrive at Pendaries. The closest grocery and convenience stores are approximately 20 minutes away in the town of Mora. Las Vegas, NM is about 30 minutes away and has all services you may need. The Bar and Restaurant accepts major credit cards, but there is no ATM available on site. We will be able to accept credit cards or paypal for purchase of tournament discs, apparel or raffle tickets.

Discs and Apparel

If you did not select the t-shirt option with your entry, you will still be able to purchase them at the tournament. We will also be selling tournament stamped discs with the artwork on the header of this letter all weekend.

Raffle Raffle Raffle!

On Saturday night at 8:00pm, we will be holding a raffle with tons of disc golf equipment, art, hotel vouchers, and many other items! Kay Dorman will be selling raffle tickets all weekend long!

NMHU Disc Golf Club Disc Drive

Please bring your used plastic that you won’t be throwing anymore to donate to New Mexico Highlands University Disc Golf Club. These discs will be used to give to students and new players to keep the sport growing where many of us got our start, at NMHU! Donation box will be available at all tournament events.

Practice Rounds/Cart Rentals

You may practice any time. Carts will be available for rent on Thursday, April 24th for $16 per cart (two people). There will be no carts for the tournament rounds.

Tee Times

The tee times will be posted on Monday, April 21st on They will be posted at Pendaries Bar on Wednesday, April 24th and they will be posted at check in. The teeing order is: Juniors, rec women, rec men, int women, int men, advanced grandmasters, advanced masters, advanced women, advanced men, pro grandmasters, pro masters, open women, open men. Tee times will begin at approximately 7:30am. Please arrive at hole #1 20 minutes before your tee time as there will be no players meeting and the tournament directors will meet with each group individually before they tee off.

What Tees am I playing from?

All professional divisions (MPO, FPO, MPM, MPG) advanced men (MA1), advanced masters men (MM1), will be playing from the LONG tees.

All other divisions will be playing from the SHORT tees.


We are a qualifying event for three different tournaments, The Maple Hill Open, The US Amateur National Championships, and the USDGC. If you didn’t pay the $10 for the Maple Hill Open Qualifier with your entry fee, you can do so any time before you tee off for your first round. This applies to all those playing the long tees. The top two scores of those who have bought in to the qualifier will qualify for the Maple Hill Open in July! The Am Nats qualifier is open to all those in the Advanced Men’s division. The top 25% of the MA1 field will automatically qualify for Am Nats in Michigan in June! The USDGC qualifier is open to all New Mexico players. The New Mexico player who shoots highest above their rating over the three tournament rounds will get the New Mexico berth to the USDGC! You must have an 875 rating to qualify for the USDGC.

I have attached the caddie book to this email. Everyone will receive one at check in.

Tournament Directors, Pendaries Village Open

Course is open to the public April 1st!

Golfers! The course opens for public play tomorrow! The layout is the same with one exception. The pond behind the green on 16 has water and is OB. It will be strung for the tournament. The long tees are marked with red flags and the short with pink. All pro divisions plus advanced men and advanced masters men will be playing longs. All other divisions will be playing shorts.
Please follow these simple rules!
1. Stay off the greens. If your disc is on the green get it off, repair any marks it may have made and go back off the green,
2. DO NOT LITTER! Right now there are no trash cans set up on the course. Pack it in, pack it out!
3. No pets allowed, even on leashes. The residents are allowed to have their dogs out there, we do not. Remember, we are guests.
4. Be courteous to the residents. We enjoy this piece of paradise for only a few weeks a year and have worked very hard to build up a great reputation for disc golfers. Please act accordingly.

I’m working on getting the caddie book updated. I’ll post a link to it as soon as its done. If anyone has questions contact Jason Weldon or myself. Enjoy!!
