About this tournament

Idlewild Open returns for it's 4th year on the Disc Golf Pro Tour. presented by Dynamic Discs and hosted by The Nati Disc Golf and their excellent staff. Known by most as the most challenging and difficult course on tour, this beast has it all. Elevation changes on numerous holes may help or add to your required distance. Punishing rough lined fairways grab errant shots with no remorse. The snake like creek that slithers through several holes increases the risk of adding strokes as well as constricting greens on a few baskets. Shot accuracy and placement take a higher priority then just raw distance. Weather conditions have also played a big factor in our first two years and will most likely continue it's dreaded rein. No lead is safe going down the final stretch of holes. Join us this summer for another exciting event at Idlewild.

Tee Times will be set and ready on Wednesday evening. We will be sorting first round by Ratings, besides the Feature cards.

Ace Fund: Current Total is at $720: Since the Aces hit last year did not get in to the pool, we have a $365 carry over, be sure let us know if you haven't paid in yet, must be in by Thursday Night.
If no Aces from the pool hit this year, we will make a donation to a local Charity.
