About this tournament

Welcome to the 2021 Queen City Gambit in beautiful Charlotte, NC! Please join us July 24-25th for our first annual 2-day/4-round PDGA B-tier taking place at Nevin, Idlewild, and Kilborne Park.

A few notes about the event:

-For 2021, the Queen City Gambit will be a Amateur only/trophy only event. We plan to add Professional divisions in 2022 but for our first year we want to cater to our Amateur fields only.

-In the event the tournament fills and there are enough players on the waitlist to open a third pool, we will do so and open the event to an additional 72 players (216 players total).

-Trophies will be paid out to 1st-3rd place finishers in divisions with 10 players or more. For divisions that do not reach 10 players, adjusted trophies will be given out depending on how many players are competing.

-Players packs will be given to all players and will be comprised of discs from Dynamic Discs and Prodigy Disc as well as other small items including food and beverage vouchers to the players party which will take place at Sugar Creek Brewing on Saturday evening. Per PDGA requirements, the players pack will be valued at 100% of the entry fee minus fees (PDGA & CDGC).

-In addition to the players party at Sugar Creek Brewing where players can enjoy food and beverage service, we will be conducting a putting challenge at the brewery with prizes for top finishers. A HUGE thank you goes out to Sugar Creek for accommodating our group and allowing us to set up a putting course which we hope you all will enjoy! In the event that we cannot have a players party due to Covid related restrictions, we will re-invest all allocated players party money back into the players packs or CTP prizes.

-Pool information and course schedules will be posted after registration closes in June, possibly before if the event fills.

-Please review the refund structure BEFORE registering!

- Thank you to all of our sponsors and partners for the 2021 Queen City Gambit: Charlotte Disc Golf Club, Sugar Creek Brewing Company, Dynamic Discs, Prodigy Disc, and Scorpion Disc Golf!
