We are happy to announce that Westside Discs has graciously stepped in to be our title sponsor. This is their second time in the role (2016) and we’re glad to have them back. As part of their support of DDGC20, every amateur player is going to receive a tournament logo dri-fit tee shirt.
We are about 18 days removed from the opening of registration and we have 143 spots spoken for and just one left unclaimed. Who will grab it and officially fill DDGC20?
If you’re not in or aren’t eligible/interested in the divisions that are still open, don’t despair. Get on the waitlist! Last year we saw at least 40 players move from the waitlist into the tournament (and for some, right back out again). There surely will be movement again this year. The sooner you get on the list, the better your chances.
Registration for DDGC20 opened this morning, and six hours into things, there were 100 players signed up.
While there are 44 spots still available, they are divided between two pools so space in certain divisions are apt to run out faster than others. Don’t be lulled into thinking you have time…check your desired division and see how many spots remain in that pool. The sooner you sign up, the better your chances of getting in.
DDGC20 is shaping up to be the biggest and hopefully the best yet. For the first time, it will be contested on TWO courses on the same site. At long last, Dragan Field is opening its second 18-hole course, and the DDGC will be played on it.
This development has necessitated some changes to the schedule. Gone is the noon start time. Round 1 will tee off at 10am. Also, the morning doubles round has been shelved because of this change in schedule.
The biggest plus of the addition of the new course is the field will be expanded to a 144 player capacity. Split into two flights of 72, every player will get a chance to play 36 unique holes during regulation. In addition, the top 6 in MPO and the top 3 in FPO will still play the DT9 at the end of the day.
Registration opens on Tuesday, February 4 at 8am. If you want to play this storied event, don’t wait to long to get signed up. Spots will go fast.
This year, our historical (in size) FPO division is getting some extra special attention. Central Coast Disc Golf, one of the most popular disc golf channels on Youtube, will be sending a crew to cover our pro women. They will choose one card to cover in round 1, then cover the lead card in round 2 and the DT9. The only unknown at this point is when the coverage will be posted (it will not be immediate).
This coverage is being made possible by some generous sponsors. If you’d like to help sponsor the coverage or the event in general, please use the contact page to get in touch.
