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 – February 3, 2024
Traditionally held late January or early February, a best-shot doubles tournament first played in 2004.
Jokers Wild Doubles – March 31, 2024
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.
Skills Challenge Doubles – April 20, 2024
Held in mid/late April, this is a revival of an old tournament format combining best shot doubles with a driving contest and a putting contest. Points earned in the driving and putting are subtracted from the golf scores to give an overall total.
Dragan Disc Golf Classic – June 1-2, 2024
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.
GOATS at Dragan Field – 2024 TBD
A tournament (and series) exclusively for players age 40 and older. The Golden Oldies Anhyzer Tournament Series is entering its fifth season and is making its annual stop at Dragan Field. This event/series is ideal for older players looking not just for competition but camaraderie.
The GreenHorn Tournaments – Singles = TBD, Doubles = TBD
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).

Santa’s Doubles – December 10, 2023
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.
Last Call – December 31, 2023
One round, flex start tournament on Red Dragon winter layout designed to give players one last chance for PDGA points before the season ends. Players can sign up for any tee time is convenient to play their round.
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.
