This past Saturday, TNDG hosted our first Tournament at Fescue’s Edge. Tournament details are listed below as well as on Disc Golf Scene. We just wanted to offer a very heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone involved; particularly because of level of professionalism that every player brought with consideration to health precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Players and staff checked in for a health screening, kept their distance from others, wore masks and it was never an issue. Thank you for making this event and future events possible!

About this tournament

Tournament Day Scores have been posted. Thank you to everyone for reresenting the disc golf community well and for all of your support. We’re excited to host our next tournament day very soon! Stay tuned for our next announcement.

Our contract at Fescue’s Edge is for the first quarter of 2021. Depending on the turn out at these events, this can become a permanent course.

Cards will remain the same for the second round to maintain compliancy with COVID restrictions.

A virtual players meeting will be posted here in the coming days. This video will display a comprehensive drone flight of course V1.3 and additional information.

Fescue’s Edge has been gracious enough to allow us to book 20 rounds of disc golf on Jan. 30th.

In the morning before your first tee time, please ensure you’ve checked in with Janice who will take your temperature and ask you some standard screening questions. She will be in front of the clubhouse. She will then forward you to Tyler and Jeff who will be under the TD tent where you will receive your players pack.

Welcome to the first of many True North Disc Golf tournament days! These will be low notice, high relative cash added one or two day tournaments. These days will use players ratings to determine which division you play in. If you do not currently have a PDGA rating, please select the division you’re most comfortable playing in.

Tournament day #1 will be a one-day two-round unsanctioned tournament with $500 added to the prize pool. You will be playing on a brand new 18 basket championship level course brought to you by Fescue’s Edge and TNDG.

Each group has been allotted 3.5 hours to finish a single round.

COVID Guidelines:

1. Please wear your mask when you’re not playing your round and on the property. (We recommend wearing a mask during play but it is not required).

2. Only one person is permitted to use the clubhouse at a time, we will have a staff member on site to direct traffic.

3. Please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your tee time. Janice will be standing in front of the clubhouse to take your temperature and ask you some screening questions prior to play.

4. Once COVID protocols are completed you will be forwarded to the TD tent to receive your pack and start your round of golf.

5. Please note, due to the nature of the situation we ask that you do your warmup routine at home before you come to the course. We will not be able to operate a practice area.

So we know everyone is prepared, each player will receive a bag that contains:

A.) 1 Mask
B.) 1 Bottle of hand sanitizer
C.) 2 Hand warmers
D.) 1 Scorecard
E.) 1 Pen

We request that one player on each card keeps track of the groups score on Udisc to speed the admin side of things up. Each remaining player will be responsible for keeping track of their groups score via their own written scorecard. You’re all competing for cash prizes and we require accurate scorecards to make sure that money is paid out correctly. It is REQUIRED of you to hand in your scorecard at the end of your rounds so that we can quickly and efficiently payout your winnings.

Please show up no earlier than 10 minutes before your scheduled tee time. Please be at hole 1 no later than 3 minutes before your tee time to ensure the tournament runs smoothly.

When you complete your first round you should go directly to your vehicle, with the one exception to grab a quick snack or drink from the clubhouse. A line will be formed outside of the clubhouse maintaining the 2 meter rule. A staff member will be there to direct traffic. You are also free to leave the venue to grab some lunch as you will be given your scheduled tee times for both rounds in advance.

If you leave the venue, please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before your second scheduled tee time.

If you choose to remain in your vehicle, please exit your vehicle no earlier than 10 minutes before your second scheduled tee time.

For those that are competing under professional status all email money transfers will go out the following day, most likely in the morning. You will be contacted directly so we know exactly what payment method to use. Please leave the venue after confirming your scorecard from the second round.

For those that are competing under amateur status, Janice will form a line as players complete their rounds and we will calculate the payout for each coloured division as efficiently as possible. You will receive your store credit in the form of a gift card directly at the TD tent.
