CCDG coverage

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.

Dragon’s Tail Nine Changes

Due to the way registration shook out this year, we’re making an adjustment to the Dragon’s Tail Nine final round this year.  Instead of the top 9 MPO players qualifying for this nine hole round, it will be the top 6 MPO players and the top 3 FPO.

PDGA guidelines dictate that cut lines have to be at or above the cash line, and technically a final 9 is a cut.  With only 12 in MPO at the moment, that means having 9 of them make the DT9 forces us to pay out 75% of the field.  Rather than do that, we’ll cut them to 50% of their field and take advantage of our record-breaking FPO field by adding them into the fun for the first time. Our previous high for participation in FPO was four players so we couldn’t really form a full DT9 card without paying more than the top 50% of the field.  Now we can do that and we will do that.

There’s more potential news regarding the FPO division, but we’ll save that until details are worked out.

2019 Title Sponsor!

We are excited to announce that Latitude 64 is on board as the title sponsor for DDGC19.   As a part of the sponsorship, every entrant (pro and am) will receive a tournament shirt in their player’s pack.  This marks the completion of the Trilogy Trifecta when it comes to title sponsoring the DDGC.  In 2016, it was Westside Discs.  In 2018, it was Dynamic Discs.  Now Latitude 64.

As if there weren’t enough reasons to be involved in the Dragan Disc Golf Classic, Latitude 64’s support is making it even more important to get signed up ASAP.  Set a reminder, bookmark the link now.  Registration opens on February 1 at 8am, and as always, it is expected to fill very quickly.

Title Sponsor!

We are happy and proud to have Dynamic Discs on board as the title sponsor for DDGC18.  Dynamic has supported our event in one capacity or another for the last four years, but they’re stepping it up for 2018.  As a part of the sponsorship, every entrant (pro and am) will receive a tournament shirt in their player’s pack.

As if there wasn’t enough reason to get signed up as soon as registration opens, Dynamic Discs is making it even more imperative.  Set a reminder, bookmark the link now.  Registration opens on February 1 at 8am, and it will fill quickly.

News and Notes

This was sent out in an email to all participants, but for those that didn’t receive the email, we post it here.

Hello Registered Players (and waitlisters) of the DDGC,

Just wanted to send a note to everyone with a couple reminders and news items as we are about 72 hours away from crowning our champions.

1. If you have missed our prior announcements on social media, we have added two holes to the course (holes that will eventually be a part of Dragan Field’s second 18-hole course). We will be playing two 20-hole rounds as a result. This has allowed us to expand the field from 72 to 80 players.

2. The wait list has really started to move in the last week as some players have dropped out. We have attempted to contact everyone who has gotten in from the wait list but not all have responded. Check the registration list at PDGA.com to see if you still have a WL## distinction or not. If you don’t, you’re in. Please contact us if you haven’t already done so, or check your spam folders for the original email we sent out with registration info.

3. We’ve had a wet spring, including in the last week or so. As a result, there are some areas of the course that are particularly soggy. The course is navigable and everything, but there are certainly places one can end up where feet might get wet. If you have waterproof footwear, we recommend it. If not that, then plenty of changes of socks. 🙂

4. Along those same lines, because of the added moisture, some of our overflow parking isn’t very usable. We’ll squeeze everyone in somehow, but we are asking folks to carpool if at all possible just to make things a bit easier.

5. Check-in will be available from 12:00 until 8:00 on Friday (registered players are welcome to play all day Friday for free), as well as 7:00 until 11:30 on Saturday morning. All players must check in on Saturday by 11:30 (including those who check in on Friday). If we have wait-listers present and ready to play and you have not checked in by 11:30, you will lose your spot in the tournament. If you’re caught in traffic or otherwise running late and might not be there by 11:30 but don’t want to lose your spot, CALL us. 207-786-4900. We won’t delay things for you, but we won’t take your spot away.

That’s all for now. We’re really looking forward to seeing everyone and putting on a good show. Please be sure to check out the tournament website (dragandiscgolfclassic.info) as well as the Dragan Field facebook and twitter feeds (–>) for updates and news.
