What is the Northeast Junior Disc Golf Championships?
The Northeast Junior Disc Golf Championships will be taking place at the world renowned Maple Hill Disc Golf Course in beautiful Leicester, MA on September 28, 2019. This event will be the culmination of numerous qualifying junior only tournaments that will take place all over the Northeast (ME, NH, VT, MA, CT, RI, NY, PA, and NJ).
Another SUPER EXCITING event feature of this tournament experience is the GLOW DISC GOLF round that will be taking place on Friday, September 27 (evening before the championship). This glow round will be available for championship registrants and a parent on a modified layout at Maple Hill Disc Golf Course. After the glow round Ice-cream will be made available in the game room above the Maple Hill Pro Shop!
Prior to the glow round, disc golf games will also be provided; Long Distance Drive, Putting Challenge, and Accuracy Challenge. More information on the timeline for these games will be provided when a full schedule is posted.
This tournament will be sanctioned as a PDGA C-Tier event which allows us to offer all junior divisions. Number of holes played will be determined by the division of play. FJ6, MJ6, and FJ8 will be playing 18 holes of play on the red course which will be modified appropriately. All other divisions will be playing 27 holes (One round of 18 with a break and an additional 9 holes) utilizing the Red, White, and Blue layouts. More details will be provided as the event draws closer. Tournament registration fees will be announced at a future date. This fee will be used to cover venue costs, a player pack, awards/prizes and other event features.
How do I qualify?
Players that would like to compete in the Northeast Junior Disc Golf Championships must at a minimum play in an official qualifying event. To guarantee an invite to the championship players must finish first in their division at a qualifying event. If a player who has already finished first at a qualifying event, places first again at another qualifier, the invite to the championship would also extend to whoever placed second at that event. This same method will be used to ensure that all top finishers are invited and not just the one player who might win every event that they chose to play. Once registration opens, invites will be made available to all of these players. Once a fair amount of time has passed for players to register, any remaining spots will be made available to all players who competed at a qualifying event.
A list of event qualifiers will be updated as TD’s reach out to us from all over the Northeast with requests to have their junior only events added as a qualifier. Interested in running a qualifying event? Fill out the form at the bottom of this page.
