Disc golf will be included in this year’s National Senior Games to be held in Cleveland, OH. While disc golf has been included in a number of state level events, this is the first inclusion for our sport in a major national event.
Competition begins on July 19 and runs through August 1. The specific dates of the disc golf competition will be July 20-21. The format will include four rounds over two days played on two courses.
Promotion to Increase Senior Participation in the Sport of Disc Golf
As previously announced, the PDGA Senior Committee, led by chairman Don Dillon, has embarked on a project to nationally reach out to encourage more members of the increasing senior population to enjoy the benefits of playing recreational and competitive disc golf. This project was divided into two parts. The first part was called the “Bottom-Up” approach where PDGA members are involved and the second part was called the “Top-Down” approach where national senior organizations are contacted and encouraged to inform their members about the benefits of disc golf.
