Note: You will notice when checking out that you aren’t paying discgolfscene and paypal fees in addition to the listed entry fee. Some tournaments have reported getting their accounts frozen for passing fees on to the customer, which is against Paypal’s terms of service. To avoid this we are working fees into the price and any money left over after covering those fees will be added to the CTPs and Ace Pot.

Format/Prizes:
Two rounds of 18 holes, one per day (Saturday and Sunday). Scheduled tee times. Intermediate Women and Recreational divisions shoot from orange tees. Everyone else shoots from the long tees.

Top 40% of each division will be paid out. Pro divisions will be paid in cash. All Am divisions will be paid in Marty Bucks. Marty from Top O’ the Hill will be on-site with his traveling pro shop to redeem your prizes!!! https://www.topothehilldiscgolf.com/

$4.00 of your entry goes to CTP’s and Ace Pot. If no ace is struck during the tournament there will be a throw off on Hole 18 for the money at the awards ceremony.

$1.00 of your entry goes to Granite State Tour.

$5.00 of your entry goes to facilities rental. The park gives us HUGE discounts on campsites and pavilions for the weekend, but at the end of the day your TD’s still have large gaps in facilities expenses that need to be covered. With everyone pitching in, the Classic can become financially self-sufficient, we hope you understand.

Glow Golf:
We are setting up TWO 9-hole glow courses for the weekend. Course 1 will be the traditional course over the pond and through the front 9. Course 2 will be short tees on the back 9. Baskets and tees will be lit up, but you will need either glow plastic or LED lights taped to your disc. If you don’t have your own, we will have lights available for purchase online or day of ($1 apiece, 2-3 recommended) and tape to affix them. Saturday night glow doubles will be BYOP this year, and if you don’t have a partner we will find one for you! Trophies and prizes for the winning team!


GLOW MINI GOLF:
Gate City Disc Golf Club, a brand new 501(c)(3) nonprofit based in Nashua, NH will be sponsoring GLOW MINI this year! They generously will be donating a glow mini driver and a glow mini putter to each player! The glow mini course starts at campsites 8/9/10, right next to glow course 1, on both Friday and Saturday nights! There will be prizes for the top scores and more fun than you can shake a stick at. Huge thanks to GCDGC for making this happen!!!


Mini Disc Golf:
Following up on our hosting the New England Mini DG Championship, we will be bringing back our 18-hole championship mini course for 2021! The course will be set up Friday through Sunday with an open-play format. The best score of the weekend will win a mini basket, generously donated by your tournament directors! We plan by Mini Disc Golf Federation rules, please review before playing (most important is no run-ups!): http://minidiscgolf.com/rules/.




Food:
Martha’s On a Roll food truck will be back serving up tasty treats at the event! Martha has amazing hot breakfast and lunch options for both carnivores and vegetarians! Would you rather be scrambling to make food before your tee time or have a delicious hot meal prepared for you? The truck will be set up at tourney central both Saturday and Sunday, so be sure to support this local Hanover business! https://www.facebook.com/marthasonaroll/
