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.

Lodging

The hostel on island has closed permanently and, unfortunately, at this point, we have not been able to find anyone on island that can offer us a place to camp, so if you register for the tournament, please do so under the assumption that you will either a) be able to find and secure your own accommodations on island for the tournament or b) simply be coming over to the island the morning of your tournament on the 6:10 am Hy-Line ferry from Hyannis and returning to the mainland at the conclusion of the tournament.

There are unfortunately very few reasonably-priced accommodations available on the island in September (prices for hotel rooms start at about $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 Airbnb or VRBO for a group might also be a relatively economical option.

There are some fairly reasonable lodging options available not only in Hyannis, but very close to the ferry terminals there, so staying in Hyannis the night before your tournament and walking over to the ferry terminal in the the morning might work well for some.

You can also join the Nantucket Huckers Facebook group and there is a chance you may be able to find a local there who could offer you lodging at their home.

I wish things were different and we were able to offer accommodations and/or camping on island like we have in the past, but things have just changed so much and gotten so much more expensive on island, this is just where we are at this point. Will certainly let you all know though if we are able to secure a camping option on island at some point before the tournament and if so, we will offer the option then to add that camping to your registration.

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.
