The 2023 Thorndike will feature color coded, ratings-based divisions rather than traditional divisions.  The lone exception will be that FPO (Female Pro Open) will also be offered to give women a fair professional division in which to play.  See the chart below (click to enlarge) to see how these divisions line up with traditional divisions.

If you do not have a rating, the list below shows an estimation of your division based on what your average score is on Red Dragon.  To be clear, this is not an expectation of the scores for the tournament, but where a player who averages a given score would fit.

  • Gold = 52 or better
  • Blue = 53-57
  • White = 58-61
  • Red = 62-66
  • Green = 67-71
  • Purple = 72 and higher


Traditionally held on the first Sunday in November each year.  Two round singles tournament, PDGA sanctioned since 2011. Often run as a charity event that has benefited the Boy Scouts, disc golf in area schools, and the Maine Children’s Cancer Program at Maine Med.
