The sport's most exclusive and prestigious event for amateur players is the United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship being held June 8-10 in Milford, MI. Only 148 qualified players compete on the Toboggan Championship course each summer, and here's a way for you to be there... even if you didn't receive an invitation.
Most players earn their way to an invitation through top finishes at qualifying events throughout the year. Registration for those players opened a few weeks ago, and as of May 1st, all current PDGA amateurs with a rating of 945 or higher will be officially qualified.
"I can't believe I'm here, this is so great!" So said a wide-eyed 2010 competitor as he gazed down the sweeping landscape of Kensington Toboggan's hole three, a 915-foot signature hole on one of disc golf's true gems.
Top-performing Amateur players have been coming here to Milford, Michigan since 2002, all by invitation after having proven themselves worthy of a chance at becoming the US Amateur National Champion. This is the PDGA United States Amateur Disc Golf Championship, presented by Discraft. The 2011 tournament runs June 10-12.
