Tuesday Night Weekly

The weekly is a place for beginning players to learn the game of disc golf, as well as, provide a place for the more skilled players to compete and continue to improve their skills. The weekly is an organized tournament and play is governed by PDGA and park rules. The weekly promotes the fun of disc golf and supports the growth of the sport through many other club events held throughout the year.

March 14 through April 4

The first four weeks will be doubles team play using different formats. The intention is to have recreational and intermediate players play with pro and advanced players. This has proven to be a lot of fun and a great learning opportunity for a beginning player.

April 11 through Sept 12

Divisions based on skill level will divide the field and individual (singles) scoring will be used. The following four divisions are offered: Open, Advanced, Intermediate, and Recreational. The Open division is open to all players to compete and is often referred to as the pro division. The Advanced, Intermediate, and Recreational divisions are considered amateur divisions. The Open division pays out cash each week for the lowest scratch scores. Payout for the amateur divisions will be in the form of points. Points awarded each week will go toward Play it Again Sports gift cards or club merchandise at the event. Members can accumulate (or ‘bank’) the points to go toward better items at a later time. The Open, Adv, and Int divisions play a variety of course layouts during the summer including gold tees. The Recreational division plays from the white tees for the majority of the summer and prizes are awarded using scratch scores. Each division will also compete in a monthly combined scratch score payout. An optional Ace Pot and CTP (closest to the pin) contest will also be offered throughout the summer.
