Beginner’s Disc Golf League – Sundays in May 2014

April 14, 2014 Posted by Admin

Pre-Registration for this league is appreciated. Contact Kathy, kshue(at)cebridge.net to register.

Anyone new to the sport of disc golf is welcome to this league! Experienced players may come to help out and “guide” new beginners through play, rules and course courtesy or bring their friends or family to learn the sport! Children who are interested in the sport, 10 years old and older are welcome to join and we encourage parents/guardians to participate with or accompany their children. This league will start off as 9 Holes, Red Tees to Short Baskets.

Disc Golf Orientation – May 4th, 11th & 18th @ 10:00am – $15.00

beginnersdiscgolfWe would like new players to commit to the first three meets for a flat $15.00 as orientation to the sport of disc golf, the course, and to get two discs (putter and a mid-range). These first three meets will not be competition based to give players a no pressure setting to familiarize themselves with the basics of the sport and how to navigate the Friends of Punderson Disc Golf Course. There will be a CTP (Closest to Pin) throw off at the end of each round for a prize!

Beginner’s League – Starts May 25th @ 10:00am – $5.00 / Meet

After Orientation, we hope our new players will want to continue in their own Beginner’s League. League fees will be $5.00 per person due at the start of each round with $1.00 optional Ace Fund. If nobody hits an Ace by the end of the league the funds will go to The Friends of Punderson Disc Golf Fund. Experienced players may join the league to help out new players, however their scores and funds will be kept separate from our beginners.

We will have a special prize for a “CTP” (from the tee) for a different hole each round.

This league will start off as 9 Holes, Reds to Shorts. If players agree to extend the league, we hope to increase it gradually to make it all 18 by the end of the summer.

If there is no interest in this league after the Orientation is over, we will not have it unless there is expressed interest from other players.

Vibram

Birdie Bash General Information:

Here are some frequently asked questions and answers – you can read more here: http://vibram.usetopscore.com/about#Player%20FAQs

Do I get to pick my discs? Yes and no.

  • You pick a driver or mid
  • You pick a putter
  • X-Link Medium or Firm
  • You pick the weight
  • Supplies may be limited

 

How do you know what shirt size to get me? When you register, you select your shirt size.

Do I have to use the discs I get that day? Yes! Even if you have other Vibram discs, to make it fair, you need to use these new discs.

How many divisions? Two. Men and women.

Should beginners play? Absolutely! This is a great way to get two high quality discs and enjoy a day of low pressure, high fun discing. Also, the second round groups are put together based on first round score and the winner of each group in the second round gets a bonus prize. So everyone will have a chance to win something!

How long is a Vibram Birdie Bash? It is two rounds and you will be shooting a limited number of shots per hole (usually just 2 or 3 shots). We estimate round one will take 1.5 to 2 hours, allow 1 hour for lunch and another 1.5 to 2 hours for round 2. If the event starts at 10 AM, it will probably be done around 3:00 PM or so.

Vibram Birdie Bash – $30

  • Two Rounds
  • Two Vibram discs OF YOUR CHOICE!
  • One Shirt (S-XXXL)
  • Birdies or better to earn points

 

Prizes

  • Two Champions Discs (top scoring man and woman)
  • One Spirit Award Disc
  • 2nd Round Card Prize: A VBB Sling Backpack
  • CTPs

 

Points

  • Ace/Eagle: 5 points
  • Birdie: 2 points
  • Metal Hit: 1 point
  • If no points are scored on a hole, the closest to the pin after two throws earns a point.

 

Scoring Examples:

Example 1: A par 3. Your drive hits the basket but does not go in. You drain your birdie putt. You earn three points: 1 point for the metal hit on the drive, 2 points for the birdie.

Example 2: A par 3. Your drive goes way left and lands 150 feet away. Your 2nd shot is straight but low and hits the post. You earn one point and there is no need to putt out.

Example 3: A par 4. On your fourth shot, you tickle the chains and do not go in the basket. You get zero points since the shot that hit chains was not for birdie or better. As it turns out, there was actually no need to even throw the fourth shot, except for funsies.
