That's cuz the land is too valuable to waste on a park, let alone one where it's hazardous to picnic.
The beaches there are enormous, and represent a large fraction of the available open park space in the region. The Santa Monica mountains are jealously guarded by nimbys and environmentalists (whose interests largely intersect in keeping out the riff-raff), leaving very little chance for a disc golf course to ever be established. The one further south in Manhattan Beach is supposed to be a joke: 9 baskets in a crowded postage stamp of a park. La Mirada, El Dorado, Sylmar, and Casitas are all very fine courses, but easily up to an hour drive in LA traffic from W LA.
Anyways, it's a good thing I didn't stay in that region, myself, or I never would have picked up disc golf!
