Since it opened, Dragan Field has played host to a number of tournaments and leagues. Many have become long time annual traditions.
Below is the list of events we host, with the date of the next iteration of that event
Frostbite Doubles – January 29, 2022
Traditionally held late January or early February, a best-shot doubles tournament first played in 2004.
Jokers Wild Doubles – March 27, 2022
Traditionally held in late March or early April, a two round doubles tournament in which the first round (the Joker round) plays six different formats (3 holes of each) and the second round is played in the best shot format. This tournament was first played in 2017.
Dragan Disc Golf Classic – June 4-5, 2022
The crown jewel and longest running tournament at Dragan Field, dating back to 2001. Also the longest running PDGA tournament in Maine. Routinely maxes out capacity, draws players from all over the country, and has World and National champions among its victors.
The GreenHorn Tournaments – Doubles = August 8, 2021
Beginner-oriented tournaments aimed at introducing players to competitive play and teaching the rules and procedures of tournament disc golf. The singles tournament is typically held in late July and the doubles tournament is typically held in early August. Since 2014, the singles tournament has been held in conjunction with the Trilogy Challenge (open to all).
GOATS at Dragan Field – July 16, 2022
A tournament (and series) exclusively for players age 40 and older. The Golden Oldies Anhyzer Tournament Series is entering its fourth year and is making its annual stop at Dragan Field. This event/series is ideal for older players looking not just for competition but camaraderie.
Thorndike Memorial – November 7, 2021
Annual singles tournament traditionally played on the first Sunday in November dates back to 2003. Since 2011, the tournament has been sanctioned as a PDGA C-tier.
Santa’s Doubles – December 11, 2021
Christmas themed tournament that dates back in various formats to 2004. The current format involves one round of best shot doubles and a second round called “Santa’s Grab Bag” in which the format is drawn from Santa’s hat just before the round begins.
Held on Monday evenings when daylight warrants, the most common format is random draw doubles, but we also play singles. In the spring, 12 weeks of Monday Night doubles are used as a points series in which the winner earns free entry to the Dragan Disc Golf Classic. Once that series ends, singles and doubles are alternated through the summer and early fall.
COMING IN 2022
Talon Championship – September 3, 2022
PDGA sanctioned tournament played exclusively on Talon.
