About this tournament

We are inviting women and girls of all ages to play two fun rounds of disc golf over Mother’s Day weekend! Every player will receive a great player’s pack including 2 discs (full details below).

UPDATED APRIL 26:
Mother's Day Special! Mother & daughter $5 discount

UPDATED APRIL 23:
The Huckleberry Open will now be virtual, and no longer be held in the traditional in-person format due to recent Public Health orders. We have taken considerable thought as to how we can still play disc golf collectively, but without gathering at this time.

We have come up with a virtual format to keep everyone safe so we can still get outside for some fun exercise in the sun! And you’ll still get the awesome player's pack, plus a chance to win some great prizes from our local sponsors.

LOCATION CHANGE: The location has now changed to Marsh Creek Disc Golf course at the Beaver Valley Family Campground in Fruitvale, BC.

DATES: Tee times will be spread over 3 days (May 7-9) to space out rounds and allow for players to play individually or with a partner in their core bubble. You will only play on one of the 3 days as assigned. We’ll do our best to give everyone their preferred day & tee times where possible.

TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS: Only open to residents of Nelson, Rossland, Trail, Castlegar and neighbouring rural areas.

Every participant will receive the following Player Pack items:
- PDGA WGE stamped Dynamic Disc
- PDGE WGE stamped Innova Disc
- PDGE WGE Disc Golf Pin
- PDGA Canvas Bag
- PDGA Towel
- PDGA Disc Golfer's Code Reusable Scorecard
- PDGA Pencil
- and more!
