About this tournament

This is a 2018 United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship Qualifying Event!

For the 3rd Annual Battle in the Bend, we are upgrading this event to a one day tournament on TWO courses. Based on your division/pool your first round will either be at Rum Village or George Wilson Park switching to the other course at the break. The trophy ceremony will be held at George Wilson Park directly following the second round for ALL DIVISIONS.
If you have ever attended a South Side event, you know they are thrown with the utmost professionalism and efficiency and we always cater to the player.

UPDATE: The first 100 paid registrations will receive a 2nd disc in their players pack, a tournament stamped disc from Discraft. The Dynamic Discs RV will be in town all day Friday for the Flex Start (make sure to register for that as well) and Saturday for the event. They will be open for business and handling payouts. You can plan on tons of plastic, bags, apparel, carts and accessories. Something for everyone!
Am women and Juniors receiver players packs, however they are trophy only so TRUE AMATEUR event for AM Women and Juniors.
