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

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

Course Changes at Badlands South / Lighthouse / David Lorenz Park

Some of you may have noticed some stakes and painting on the ground at the Badlands South / Lighthouse course. Well the fact is, the South Suburban Parks Department has purchased the old boat storage/Lighthouse building area. They will be using the existing road, where the picnic table now sits by tee 1. The course had to change because they are going to have to take out existing holes 2 and 3. There will be a pond constructed where the bowl of hole 3 is now.

 

So a couple…

9 Hole Challenge Series Cancelled

I'm sorry to say that we have decided to cancel the 9 Hole Challenge Series. It was a lot of work for not much gain or benefit. We didn't have very many people show up. In fact, the most people we had come to any of the NC9HC events last year was 9. I'm grateful to those who did play the inaugural series last year. It was indeed a lot of fun! But the fact remains, as long as I am doing all the work to keep the CDSA running, I can't do two different series of events again this…
