About this tournament

TPLAYER INFORMATION / VIRTUAL PLAYER MEETING

Thank you to all the players for registering for 2020’s Texas Women’s Championship! It’s been a long strange year, but this year’s TWC will go on thanks to support and participation of you the players.

We look forward to the first Texas Women’s Championship at Crossroads Disc Golf Course. The city of Temple and Temple Disc Golf Association are excited to have you part of this event. Many hours of coursework by local club members have made this tournament possible in a year that has been a challenge for everyone within the disc golf community and outside of disc golf as well. Crossroads Disc Golf Course was originally scheduled to open at the end of March 2020 and include TWC as one of the inaugural events. However due to the recent COVID pandemic the completion was halted temporarily, and tournaments postponed. In June the task of completing the course was taken up by the local members of Temple Disc Golf Association. Without their hard-work and dedication, along with the support of the City of Temple Texas Woman’s Championship would not have happened for 2020. Thank a member when you get a chance.

Improvements will continue throughout the coming years in order to make Crossroads Disc Golf Course even better. We hope you enjoy your weekend in Temple.

Please take caution in the following locations:
Hole 16(7south) - Please use bridge to access opposite sides of creeks.
Hole 17(8south) - When accessing the cross bridge and use area alongside bridge near rocks to access lower landing. Lower portion is accessible jumping down from the ledge, but it is steep with roots and caution is highly recommended.
Hole 24 (16north, 15south) - Easiest route across creek is to take the bridge around, keep eye out for players and discs on Hole 15(15north/6south). You may take direct route through creek, but it may be soft earth, or water in creek.
Hole 25 (Long17north/16south) - The edge close to the basket is very steep. If disc goes OB over edge there is access down the side and around prior to basket.
