About this tournament

The Town of Guilford presents the first tournament at Bittner Park DGC. Bittner Park is a brand new course that is currently in the last phase of construction of an initial "short to short" layout. This event is intended to be a "soft opening" to gather player feedback on course design as well as to collect statistical data to modify each individual hole. The tournament will be played using temporary/portable baskets and natural teeboxes. Following the event and any course modifications, Innova DisCatcher 28s will be installed along with permanent tee pads (likely to be artificial turf). Future course work will likely include the installation of long tees and long baskets on every hole.
