The annual club championship will be played on November 7th and 8th. While we do crown club champions, this event is for club members to gather and play disc golf; it is not PDGA-sanctioned, and it is a great way for new players to meet and compete in a low-stakes environment.
When & Where. On Saturday we will have 36 holes of golf at Rosedale Disc Golf Course in Kansas City, Kansas. Eighteen holes Up Top and 18 holes Down Under. Shotgun starts will be at 9:00 am and approximately 1:30 pm. On Sunday, we will cross the state line to crown our champions at Wilbur Young Park in Blue Springs, Missouri, with 18 holes of championship golf. Participants that played both rounds on Saturday will be divided into flights based on their Saturday score and play on Sunday tee times. Members that did not play one or both rounds on Saturday can still compete on Sunday with flex starts between 8am and 11am.
We encourage everyone to play all 3 rounds, but you can participate by playing any one round or any two round combination as well. The overall club champion will be the lowest gross score from any player who completed all 3 rounds. The women’s club champion will be the lowest gross score from any woman that played 2 rounds (Rosedale Up Top and Wilbur Young). Women are, of course, welcome to play all 3 rounds to compete for a higher overall placement (and better bag tag) or just to have fun, but the Down Under score will not count toward the women’s club championship.
