Kathy over at Punderson State Park is running a beginners disc golf orientation event for a few consecutive weekends. The event has a $15 cost, but they're providing you with two discs (discs usually cost $8 for normal plastic), so it's pretty much a wash.
Anyone new to the sport of disc golf is welcome to this league!
Experienced players may come to help out and "guide" new beginners through play, rules and course courtesy or bring their friends or family to learn the sport!
Children who are interested in the sport, 10 years old and older are welcome to join and we encourage parents/guardians to participate with or accompany their children.
This league will start off as 9 Holes, Red Tees to Short Baskets.
Disc Golf Orientation - May 4th, 11th & 18th @ 10:00am - $15.00
We would like new players to commit to the first three meets for a flat $15.00 as orientation to the sport of disc golf, the course, and to get two discs (putter and a mid-range).
These first three meets will not be competition based to give players a no pressure setting to familiarize themselves with the basics of the sport and how to navigate the Friends of Punderson Disc Golf Course.
There will be a CTP (Closest to Pin) throw off at the end of each round for a prize!
Beginner's League - Starts May 25th @ 10:00am - $5.00 / Meet
After Orientation, we hope our new players will want to continue in their own Beginner's League. League fees will be $5.00 per person due at the start of each round with $1.00 optional Ace Fund. If nobody hits an Ace by the end of the league the funds will go to The Friends of Punderson Disc Golf Fund.
Experienced players may join the league to help out new players, however their scores and funds will be kept separate from our beginners.
We will have a special prize for a "CTP" (from the tee) for a different hole each round.
This league will start off as 9 Holes, Reds to Shorts. If players agree to extend the league, we hope to increase it gradually to make it all 18 by the end of the summer.
