The 2012 World Championships will put the spotlight on established, world-class courses like Hornet’s Nest and Renaissance, and give players the chance to experience newer courses such as Nevin, R.L. Smith and Bradford, which are bristling with challenges.
All 14 courses used are in our home county and within 30 minutes of The Blake, the host hotel located in uptown Charlotte. Most Pro divisions will play three courses twice in preliminary rounds, with most Amateur players playing five different courses.
On behalf of the members of the Charlotte Disc Golf Club and Mecklenburg County Parks & Recreation, we welcome you to our little slice of disc golf heaven. Our club, Charlotte, and Mecklenburg County are hosting 1,125 players, their families and friends in what will be the largest disc golf tournament in the history of the sport. It is our pleasure to be a part of this great event.
Where are the female disc golfers and how do we recruit more of them?
How many times have you heard this question? As a female disc golfer I find myself asking this question all the time.
Currently only 7% of PDGA members are female. This is one of the lowest female to male ratios of any co-ed sport in existence today. With your help the PDGA Women’s committee is dedicating all its efforts in 2012 to getting back to our mission of: attracting, encouraging, and retaining more female participation in organized disc golf events. To quote Val Jenkins, “January is a time for new beginnings and rejuvenation of past efforts.”
