About this tournament

The 2019 IDGC Amateur Championships is back for the 8th consecutive year at the International Disc Golf Center during the weekend of March 9th & 10th. Mark your calendars!

As a True Amateur, two-day, sanctioned B-Tier, all players will receive a player pack with a value greater than your entry fee, provided lunch on Saturday, complimentary greens fees on the Friday preceding competition, and most importantly, the chance to win some fantastic trophies to reward your excellent play!

Format
All competitors will play three rounds of 18 holes over two days. Saturday will feature two rounds with a provided lunch break. Sunday will feature the third and final round, followed by awards. As a True Amateur event, competitors will be competing for a trophy award rather than merchandise payout.
