About this tournament

Camp Kon-O-Kwee 129 Nagel Road, Fombell, PA 16123

A bi-annual disc golf retreat with club members from PA/OH/WV/NY/MD to collaboratively strategize ways to grow the sport. Day and Night disc golfing and top rate accommodations in a beautiful setting will stir the mind and body.

Our vision for the weekend is to promote equity in our disc golf community, strengthen the leadership and membership of our clubs, and provide fun, competitive formats for disc golf play.

Saturday morning and afternoon features a 48-hole team Throwdown tournament using an Ideal roster of 4 players from the same club -- 1 open player, 1 woman player, 1 master aged (40+) player and 1 Rec (<899 rated) player.

Teams with less-than-ideal rosters will be able to compete using a handicap system.

The Throwdown tournament is a Charity Tournament Partner of the Educational Disc Golf Experience (EDGE) and will benefit EDGE disc golf curricula, clinics, and programs in Pennsylvania.

Saturday evening's Hoedown includes all-you-can-eat buffet dinner and pie, Keynote presentations, Putting Contest, Flymart, fireside entertainment, and Nite Flite disc golf.

VIP accommodations at the Cochrane Lodge include modern amenities, triple-occupancy in private rooms and continental breakfast on Sunday.

The Disc Golf Symposium will present sessions on topics such as women and youth disc golf programs, sponsorship and fundraising, and team building for 2019 PDGA Amateur World Championships.

VIP tickets for the whole weekend, or for any part of the event (Team Throwdown, Hoedown, Disc Golf Symposium) can be purchased at the event page at discgolfscene.com.
