If you would like to earn a Berth to be able to play in our State Championship on Labor Day weekend in Ludington:
All of the Featured Events (FE) are listed here: http://test.mdgo.org/wp/state-schedule/
And here: http://test.mdgo.org/wp/mdgo-berths/
Or, you can take your chances and earn one at one of your local clubs who may have requested them.
Or, you can roll the dice at the Last Chance Qualifier (LCQ) in Ludington on September 2, 2016:

I have a few extra Beast mini's if anyone is looking for them.
I am looking for a Wildwood mini myself.
I also know a few people looking for some of the other Feature Event series minis.
If anyone has any of the FE series mini's they would like to get rid of, please post them up here.

I was wondering if the mdgo still gives baskets for a new course? If so how would I go about getting said baskets.

I typically don't like to rattle chains (pun intended) about things like this but I think this is an issue worth mentioning. I submitted the Shore Acres Disc Golf Club's 2015 schedule to our State Representative back in December. We're now over halfway through March and our events have yet to be posted on the state schedule on MDGO.org. I imagine that the majority of Michigan golfers get their schedule from here on disc golf scene but I have to imagine the MDGO.org is where som ... more
I typically don't like to rattle chains (pun intended) about things like this but I think this is an issue worth mentioning. I submitted the Shore Acres Disc Golf Club's 2015 schedule to our State Representative back in December. We're now over halfway through March and our events have yet to be posted on the state schedule on MDGO.org. I imagine that the majority of Michigan golfers get their schedule from here on disc golf scene but I have to imagine the MDGO.org is where some people go to get the "official" tournament schedule.
If this was the only issue I've ever had in dealing with the MDGO, I wouldn't think twice and easily forgive the forgetfulness. Unfortunately, this is one of many issues that I've observed in the past several years.
I think the part that bothers me is that the MDGO seems to pride themselves on strict governance and are quick to pass sanctions on to clubs for infractions. But in situations like this, among others, there doesn't seem to be any consequences for our state disc golf governing body. I guess I'm tired of the double standards and I'm likely not the only one. Is there a system in place for clubs/individuals to file a grievance against the MDGO? If so, what course of action is in place to hold board members accountable?
I realize that the MDGO consists of volunteers and I appreciate the majority of your actions and efforts. There are a ton of great things you do for the game here in the state and I applaud that. With that being said, I think that the bar could be raised and we could observe a higher level of professionalism and conduct out of our governing body.

Just a heads up the coupon code for affiliate club discount code for 2015 (15MDGOAFF) says it has reached the maximum number of redemptions and won't give you the discount.
Derek Michalak November 26, 2014 at 3:32pm
Trying to renew my PDGA and i can't find the affiliate club area this year. Do we need a coupon code this year?

NOTE: Heads up all. The MIDGC Finals has been moved from April 26th to April 27th. Still at Big Bend Park. Registration at 9:00, tee off at 9:30. $300 book scholarship on the line as well as the Bulldog Tag Challenge. MDGO Berths will also go to the top 3 student points winners. This event is open to all and free to play. Points earned in matches count toward qualifying to compete in the 3rd Annual Michigan Match Play Championships. Any of the 8 at-large berths not secured by May 31st, will be awarded on a first-paid basis to ANY player who has earned qualifying points.

The MDGO.org domain says it has expired as of yesterday. Is the disc golf scene going to replace that? Also is there a $5 discount for being part of the MDGO when we renew our membership?
Corey Nufer September 15, 2013 at 3:03pm

Great planning and execution in Ludington last week. From my vantage point - the "B-Tier" does not convey the high status designation the event deserves. While there may be some cashe' with a two-day, 7 course, 440 player B tier event, there is probably some other criteria that keeps the event at "B". I've done a few A-tiers but did not get curious about the official distinctions until I was "rocked" by the A++ experience I had at State's. Should I consult the PDGA manual etc., or have a talk with my knowlegable friends in Grand Rapids?
Adam Geise August 26, 2013 at 1:57pm
If you are going to be in Ludington and are available any time between 5:15 and 9AM Wednesday we are doing a live taping of "Michigan This Morning" for 9&10 news and Fox 32. We need people to throw some holes, maybe talk about disc golf in an interview, putting...Contact me ASAP firstname.lastname@example.org

Should the Disc Golf World Champion be crowned by points and not just a single tournament? Titles are almost always crowned using a single tournament.
