REGISTRATION OPENED ON TUESDAY, AUGUST 2nd AND IS NOW FULL. PLEASE SIGN UP FOR THE WAIT LIST ON THIS PAGE.

The Flying Eagle Disc Society, Eagle County’s disc golf club, is proud to bring you the second annual Flying Eagle Open disc golf tournament. This will be a PDGA B-Tier event featuring three rounds of golf on two separate courses, and is set to take place on September 24th and 25th, 2016.

The field of 140 players will be split into two pools with each pool playing shotgun start rounds at both Hole in the Sky DGC (Eagle, CO) and Gypsum Creek DGC (Gypsum, CO) on Saturday the 24th. The third round will take place at Gypsum Creek DGC on Sunday the 25th and will feature tee time rounds for all players.

Both courses will feature alternate tee positions depending on division. Amateur players can expect to receive a robust players pack, and there will be payouts to top finishers in all divisions (cash in pro and prizes in am), in addition to trophies for top players in each division.

Hole in the Sky DGC is a permanent, public course and will be open for practice rounds from sunrise to sunset until the day of the event. Gypsum Creek will have a limited practice and preview window, details of which will be announced closer to event time.

We are excited to bring this event back to Eagle County, Colorado in 2016. Please join us for a weekend of disc golf and camaraderie in the autumn beauty of the high Rocky Mountains!

THE COURSES, GROUND RULES & PROTOCOL

Please refer to the official caddy book for specific ground rules on all holes at both courses

Hole in the Sky DGC

This course derives its challenge from the numerous water features that flow in and around the Eagle County Fairgrounds. A handful of wooded holes and mild elevation change keep things interesting on what is otherwise a flat and open course. Players who stay dry and in bounds should be able to score well, even with the baskets in the long positions.

- All water in the Eagle River and both irrigation ditches is out-of-bounds
- All discs over the top of the gravel pit berm are out-of-bounds (holes 1, 2 and 3)
- Regular out-of-bounds rules apply unless the hole calls for a drop zone
- Open Men, Open Women, Open Masters Men, Open Grand masters Men, Advanced Men, Advanced Masters Men play from long tees on all holes
- Open Masters Women, Advanced Women, Advanced Masters Women, Intermediate and Rec play from the short tee on holes 2, 5, and 15
- Two Meter Rule will NOT be in play

Please settle all rulings by majority opinion of the members on your card. If a ruling absolutely cannot be decided on course, please use declared provisional throws to complete the hole in question and write both scores on the scorecard. A ruling will be made by a tournament director following the round. Recorded visual evidence such as photographs and video footage will NOT be utilized by the tournament directors for rulings decisions.

Please abide by all PDGA rules and regulations for play during your rounds as well as guidelines for etiquette, player conduct and dress code. Additional, course-specific regulations may be in play at the land owner’s and tournament director’s discretion and will be made known to all players prior to the start of the event.
