About this tournament

LWS Open at Idlewild: Title Sponsor: LWS Accounting

Idlewild returns for it's 8th 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.

Monday Open Qualifying: 2 MPO and 2 FPO spots being offered. Full DGPT entry fee is required. Reg Link: https://www.discgolfscene.com/tournaments/LWS_Open_Monday_Qualifier_2024

Regional Qualifying: Lexington Open will be offering 2 MPO and 2 FPO spots this year.

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 before registration closes. Tour Pass players must add this via reg since this was not an option for you when passes where purchased.
