For those coming over to Nantucket the morning of your tournament, please be aware that the ONLY ferry that will get you to the island in time for your tournament on either day is the 6:10 AM Hy-Line Fast Ferry. Free transportation to the course via private vehicles will be provided to those arriving on Nantucket on this ferry at 7:10 AM on both Saturday and Sunday mornings.

For those wishing to bring their vehicle with them to Nantucket, please be aware that this is, unfortunately, very costly and difficult to do. To start, the Steamship Authority Slow Ferry is the only ferry that can accommodate passengers with vehicles. The cost to bring a vehicle to the island on this ferry is $400 round-trip during September and vehicle availability for weekends during this time is usually very limited, unless booked well in advance. All this said, we encourage those coming over to the tournament to leave their vehicles at the ferry lots in Hyannis and take either public transportation to the course/campsite/lodging or the tournament-provided free transportation from the Hy-Line ferry terminal to the course on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

Nantucket Disc Golf is offering a LIMITED number of beds in a co-ed dorm at the Nantucket Hostel at 31 Western Avenue on Friday night and Saturday night. The cost is $40/bed/night. If you are unable to secure a hostel bed due to the beds being sold out, you can put yourself on our hostel bed waitlist for $1/bed/night.

Keep in mind that reservations for hostel beds are FIRST-COME, FIRST-SERVED, so if you are looking to stay overnight on the island and sleeping at the campsite is not your thing, make sure and register for our tournament the second registration opens to increase the chance that you can secure a hostel bed for yourself!

The Nantucket Hostel is approximately 3.2 miles from the ferries and town. The WAVE Bus Surfside Beach Route that services the hostel ends its summer run just days before the tournament, howevever the WAVE Bus Micaomet Loop Route picks up downtown at the Greenhound Bus Stop at 10 Washington St and drops off at the Fairgrounds Road/Surfside Road stop, which is just 1.3 miles from the Nantucket Hostel. The hostel is just 2 miles from the NDGC.

Complimentary transportation from the hostel to the tournament via private vehicles will be provided on Saturday and Sunday mornings.

CAMPING

Reserve & pay for camping when registering for the tournament or Paypal $10/night to [email redacted] and specify which night(s) you want camping for. Camping is fairly primitive, though there will be barbecue grills, a disc golf basket and a porta potty on site. Camping spots are for tournament guests only and are limited and first-come, first-served. Unfilled camping spots will be released for purchase by players' guests 2 weeks before the tournament. The campsite is only about a 10 minute walk from hole #1. Camping details, including a map to the campsite with WAVE bus route information, will be emailed out to all campers 2 weeks prior to the tournament. Please note that, per the State, camping is prohibited at the course and throughout the Nantucket State Forest. Also, due to the close proximity of many of our course neighbors, we must ask that there be NO GLOW DISC PLAY at the course during the evenings. We will have a basket at the campgrounds though which you may use during the evenings to your heart’s content!

OTHER LODGING

For those wishing to booking a hotel on your own, rooms in September on Nantucket are expensive (they start at around $300/night), however Nantucket Visitor Services (508-228-0925) might be able to help you locate a lower-cost option at a Bed & Breakfast. You can also check on prices and availability for many Nantucket Bed & Breakfasts at http://nantucketlodging.org. Finally, booking an island home on VRBO or Airbnb for a group might also be a relatively economical option.

Tournament Day Luggage Storage

Though Nantucket Disc Golf does not have a secure storage area at the course, you may leave your bags, camping equipment, and other personal items next to us at the tournament headquarters' tent next to teepad #16 during your tournament rounds and we'll do our best to look after it.

Refund policy

Per the PDGA's refund policy, withdrawals made 14 days or more prior to the start of the event shall be refunded 100%. Withdrawals made within 14 days of the event will be refunded only if the player's spot is filled by someone off the waitlist.
