About this tournament

LWS Open at Idlewild: New Title Sponsor: LWS Accounting

Idlewild returns for it's 6th year on the Disc Golf Pro Tour. presented by Dynamic Discs and hosted by The Nati Disc Golf and their excellent staff. Known by many as the most challenging and difficult course on tour, this beast has it all. Elevation changes on numerous holes may impact 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 around several baskets. Shot accuracy and placement take a higher priority than 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 DGC.

Open Qualifying: We have Two spots in MPO set aside for Open Qualifying. Qualifying round will take place on Tuesday August 8th before the event. Cost per attempt is $50. May attempt only once. Will have a separate registration page setup for this once we get closer to the event. Full event entry is required if you qualify.

Regional Qualifying: We have two events that we gave our regional spots too. River City Open and the BHMO. More info coming soon.

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

Ace Fund: Current Total is at $???, 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.
