About this tournament

The Foxwood Open was originally scheduled for the May 'two-four' long weekend here in Ontario. As we all cope with the global pandemic we have decided to reschedule the event for the August 29-30 weekend later this summer.

The event will still be a USDGC qualifying tournament, Innova Disc Golf - has given our tournament 5 USDGC spots to award.

We are making some changes to the schedule but promise to provide you with an exciting weekend of very competitive disc golf. Our host, Golf North - Foxwood Golf and Country Club is very excited to have us all there and will be doing everything possible to ensure the course is in great shape and that we can all play safely.

The tournament is now also sponsored by Explore Waterloo, they have stepped up to be the title sponsor and are making a generous contribution to ensure the event is a success this year and going forward in 2021. We have many other sponsors too.

Innova Disc Golf and Grand River Disc Golf are working together to bring this event to the Waterloo region. The tournament will showcase the challenging and beautiful Foxwood Disc Golf Course. We are making some changes to the existing layout, harder in some spots, easier in others, especially for the more recreational but still competitive divisions. An exciting addition will be six new holes - for a total of 24. As we are now playing two rounds, we wanted to ensure your weekend of disc golf is full. The event will still run with timed tee offs each day, allowing us to accommodate more players, but each round will be 24 holes. This means after two rounds you will have played 48 holes...only 6 less than a standard 3 round tournament.

We are using a ratings based registration system for amateur players. This system allows all players of similar skill to play together regardless of age or gender. The goal being to create divisions that will be larger and more competitive, which has the added benefit of diversifying the group of people you typically compete against. Larger divisions have proportionately larger payouts too.

The course with it's updated 24 hole layout will be available for play at least two days before the tournament, possibly more, still to be determined.

For those of you that already registered we hope you still make plans to attend the tournament. We do expect some people to withdraw but we also expect many more will likely be very keen to play some competitive disc golf by late summer. To facilitate this we will be expanding the field to a maximum of 140 players.

In 2021 we are planning to add a second course, step up to A-tier status, and invite many more players. We hope you make the choice to register for the Foxwood Open.
