Congratulations to all the winners, including Mike Vasey and Alex Derr who both won an Innova Discatcher EZ donated by Indiana Cycling Center in the basket contest.

The event provided amateur players 245% of their entry fee in tournament value from player pa ... more

I'm not sure what the current state of the planned turf tee pads are but will there be any leeway with teeing off behind the rubber mats if those are still in?

J. Gary Dropcho   April 18, 2022 at 7:29pm

Short rubber mats have been removed from all White Tees.

J. Gary Dropcho   April 24, 2022 at 8:35pm

Course groundrule pertaining to tee pads is posted in Pictures tab above.

J Gary, could you switch me to MA1 for Sunday?

J. Gary Dropcho   April 14, 2022 at 12:36am

Garrett, you can do the switch by registering for MA1 on Sunday and requesting to withdraw from MA2 on Saturday. I will process the refund immediatel

The course is now in the tournament layout. All baskets in position for perfect practice.

Jeff Coull   April 13, 2022 at 6:47pm

Can you share the pin locations by hole? I played it this past Sunday and I'm curious which holes might have changed since then.

J. Gary Dropcho   April 14, 2022 at 12:52am

Jeff Coull   April 14, 2022 at 4:59pm

Thank you!

Registration for the April 29 Friday Disc Golf Clinic is FREE and open on this DGS page. You can add it to your current registration, or if you are not yet in the tournament, you can register ^^
All preregistered participants get a GIRIDG mini!


J. Gary Dropcho    April 2, 2022 at 11:15am

Some of you far down on the Intermediate waitlist should consider playing up and joining the MA1 field on Sunday instead. A few spots open there.


J. Gary Dropcho    February 23, 2022 at 12:56am

The other half of the tournament will play their rounds on Sunday May 1. There are currently 12 spots left in that field, including spots in MA1, MP40, and MPO. If you are on a waitlist for MA2 or MA40, you might consider getting in one of those fields for which you might be eligible.


Stephen Woodbury    February 18, 2022 at 12:36am

Hoping the Novice party can grow by a few registrants as this would be my first tournament in a while and I'm super stoked. My 2nd EVER that I'll be scored on too so that'll be awesome to see.


J. Gary Dropcho    February 16, 2022 at 8:49pm

TONIGHT. 8pm. Registration for everyone OPENS! We have only 4 Sponsoring Player/Hole Sponsorships remaining.
Get on the waitlist if your division fills. Caps will be adjusted early March.


Casey Cousins    February 14, 2022 at 2:41am

Once I have registered as a hole sponsor, how do I select my divison?

J. Gary Dropcho   February 14, 2022 at 12:07pm

Put it in the Notes section oh your registration. (You can edit if you’ve already completed). Or send the TD a message and we’ll put you where you want to be.

J. Gary Dropcho    February 13, 2022 at 12:02am

We opened the Sponsoring Players early registration tier at 6pm 2/12/22!
Sponsor the tournament, help us raise money for tee pad improvements, and reserve a spot in the competition by being a Hole Sponsor. Only 8 spots reserved for Hole Sponsors.

I am probably overlooking it on here bit when does General registration open for this event? I don't want to miss out on this event.
