About this tournament

This will be the first tournament ever held at Birch Ridge Golf Course here in Soldotna, Alaska. Get ready for some breathtaking fairways, a massive variety of shots and a truly unique experience. Be sure to check out the pro-shop for some awesome plastic for sale! Golf Carts are available for all practice rounds! NOTE: Please keep checking comments for current tournament updates.

The field is capped at 90 players (60 Amateurs) currently to ensure that the event runs smoothly with tee times and enough merchandise is on-hand for every amateur player pack. If we hit the cap, adjustments could possibly be made as we approach the tournament date. This event will be trophy only for the Amateur entrants, receiving 2 Discs and a Prodigy Hat among many other miscellaneous goodies just for registering!

Pool A will be playing Tips, Main, Tips.
Pool B will be playing Mains, Mains, Tips.
Pool C will be playing Mains, Mains, Mains.

Snacks and Beverages will be available on-site along with a various assortment of alcoholic refreshments. You are more than encouraged to enjoy the alcoholic beverages at lunch and after your round, but since this is a B-tier make sure you are not drinking mid round and do not show any signs of public intoxication. An optional lunch option for a burger and brew will be available for purchase between rounds on day 1, and possibly on day 2, this is TBD.

We will be using Tee Times for this event. Keep in mind this does mean that day-of registration will not be available, however you can register all the way up until the morning before the event. You will be asked to check in twenty minutes prior to your tee time, and you will receive an information debrief (this is your players meeting) from the one of the TDs ten minutes before your allotted tee time. There will be practice baskets by hole 1 to warm up with.

James Gough got the idea moving to have this course put in place and after one serious sit down between the people involved it was installed in the ground in barely over a month. James is a sponsor for the course AND the event, and none of this would be possible without him. He’s responsible for so many positives in the Alaskan Disc Golf community, some known and some not. If you get a chance to reach out to him personally and thank him, please do! On behalf of Alaska Disc Golf, thank you James!

*There needs to be a minimum of 3 people in a division for that division to be fielded at this event. If you sign up for a division and the division doesn’t receive enough entrants you can freely move to any other division you qualify for!
