From Sharon Jenkins: Take Care of Local Courses

4th Rocky Mountain Women's Disc Golf Championships Moved to 2015

From tournament director Doug Bjerkaas email 3-18-14



In December 2010, Ray Woodruff and I approached the Mile High Disc Golf Club (MHDGC) Board with a request of support for a women’s only disc golf tournament. The Board said “yes” and Ray and I were off and running. Our first event at the Mansion course proved that a women’s only event in Colorado was viable and in fact could help promote women’s disc golf in our region. Since the June 2011 event, the number of women competing in… Continue

Disc Golf Article in The Denver Post

I am very happy that the CDSA can act as a conduit for the general public to ask about disc golf and any other frisbee sports and also an organization for the media to pay attention to. Such was the case when The Denver Post did an article about disc golf in August 2012, as a result from multiple CDSA press releases. I thought it was one of the coolest things I've ever seen, when the very top left corner of a major news publication like The Denver Post had the words, "Exploring Disc Golf's…

Denver Classic - Badlands Final9 Safari Course

Every year it seems to be a scramble to get the final9 safari layout at the Badlands, so I thought I'd write it down for prosperity. Remember that these holes are usually in the long/very long pin positions, which makes it easier walking and better flow for this safari course.

Safari Hole 1: tee 1 to hole 16

Safari Hole 2: tee 17 to hole 1

Safari Hole 3: tee 2 to hole 4

Safari Hole 4: tee 3 to hole 7

Safari Hole 5: tee 8 to hole 9

CDSA 20th Anniversary Artwork Needed

2012 is the 20th anniversary of the CDSA and I'm hoping to make it a great one! I would love to have discs, mini's towels, shirts and maybe other stuff, to have a cool 20th anniversary logo. I am experienced in Photoshop, but I know we do have some artists in the disc community as well.

If you have the time to put together some sketches or even a full color finished piece, I would greatly appreciate it. It would be wonderful to have a few examples to review at our board meeting on…
