About this tournament

Welcome to the 23rd Annual Colonial Fall Colors

This will be our third pdga sanctioned tournament since the Virginia guidelines has allowed us to return to running events again. Both previous tournaments went off really well and I would like to continue that with this one. I am sure most of you know the guidelines set forth by the PDGA and the state of Virginia. But, if you do not, please review them here at: https://www.pdga.com/pdga-documents/tour-documents/requirements-and-best-practices-pdga-sanctioned-play-during-covid-19 . Players, staff, and volunteers are expected to follow these guidelines. If, for some reason you cannot, please do not register for this event. If you are found in violation of these guidelines during the event, you may be disqualified from the tournament. You will be electronically signing your waiver during the registration process.

I will be using Discgolfscene for all the information you will need for the weekend as well as the PDGA website. Please check the photos tab and the comment section for the most recent information. I plan on putting all the tee sign artwork for every hole you will be playing for the weekend. It will include the distances, pars, and any special conditions like out of bounds.

Now for the fun stuff!!

Historically, it has always been a challenge to get the longest layout in by sunset because of the time change in November. To get the longest layout in this year, we will only play one round on Sunday. Also, this year will be a two day tournament for all divisions. Everyone will play at two different local courses. (Newport News Park, New Quarter Park, and/or Waller Mill Park) Course assignments are listed below. Because of the short days, Saturday will be a shotgun start for each park beginning at 9am. Sunday, we will use tee time starts with the first group starting at 8:30am.

CHECK IN

Check in will begin at 8am each day at both parks. All players will need to check in with their course TD at least 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the round each day. Player's pack will be available but please maintain social distancing. Player's packs can be picked up anytime throughout the weekend.

PAYOUT

Pro divisions will be paid out through Paypal. Alternate contactless methods may be available if needed. Cash will not be exchanged at the park.

Amateur divisions will be trophy only and will be presented to the winners before they leave the park.

PLAYER’S PACK

All amateur players will receive a player’s pack with a retail value of $30-$35. Your player’s pack can be picked up anytime throughout the weekend.

PLAYER’S MEETING/AWARD CEREMONY

The player’s meeting will not take place like pre-covid. I will email everyone a player’s meeting document and I will see most of you at the park before we start. Please contact me with any questions you may have. Currently, there will not be an awards ceremony on Sunday. All trophies will be given out before the winners leave the park.

SCORING

We will be using PDGA live scoring for the weekend. The scoring process is easy but please remember to charge up your devices. It is highly recommended to have a backup like Udisc or a paper scorecard. Scorecards will be available if needed. We will need at least one person in each group that can keep score digitally. If you cannot, or anyone in your group cannot, please let me know.

SPONSORSHIP

Sponsorship has been tougher to come by and I wanted to keep this a B tier tournament knowing that comes at cost to the club. Your sponsorship would greatly be appreciated and acknowledged. There will be a sponsorship option during registration.

Thank you!!
