Between the Kamloops Disc Golf Club’s (KDGC) League nights, the Doomsday Discovery Tour, and the Canadian 2011 Disc Golf Championships (DGC), a disc golfer’s calendar is pretty topped up.
League night is a casual series where players compete weekly to see who can better their average by the most strokes.
Doomsday Discovery Tour hosts eight events at seven courses including Heffley Creek. “There’s payouts for each individual day but it’s basically a series,” says Doomsday coordinator Colin McKinnon.
The showcase of the season is the Canadian 2011 DGC, to be played at Rose Hill in Kamloops and at Copper Ridge in Logan Lake on June 17 to 19. This is a Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) event offering winners over $7,000 in cash and prizes.
“We were planning for 150 (competitors) and are very excited to see our goal just about reached,” says Carrie Neal, president of the KDGC and tournament director for the Canadian 2011 DGC.
Many of the competitors are disc golf professionals including the 2009 and 2010 world champions. “These players tour the U.S. and Europe eight months of the year and talk about the KDGC and our ability to host top notch events!”
