Women's Disc Golf

Women's Disc Golf

The 4th Annual Magnolia Open came to a close yesterday at the International Disc Golf Center in Appling, GA. We had 31 ladies in attendance this year and are sure to double in size next year after this weekend’s success.  

The IDGC was dressed to the nines for the ladies arrival. Thanks to Alan Kane, Jason Allind, Noel Leseueur, Mom and Old Man Wallis for setting up the tournament registration area, beautifying the courses and adding those extra touches like the PDGA feather banners.

It’s almost time for the 4th Annual Magnolia Open. If you ask any of the 56 women who have previously played in this event you will find that it comes highly recommended. How could it not, with the long list of benefits to the players? Including 100% payout, free camping, free food, huge player’s packs for both amateurs and professional players, fun side games including a Corn Hole tournament, KanJam and new this year, a Hott Shotts competition.  

In 2007, some Portland-area lady golfers decided to start meeting casually on the course to learn from each other and play recreationally. These meetings grew to include an annual event designed to introduce the sport of disc golf to beginners, as well as give experienced women golfers a competition designed specifically for them. The Chick Flick Women’s Disc Golf Celebration is a C-tier event where ladies play two sanctioned rounds on Sunday, after clinics and a mixed-division practice round on Saturday. With lunches included and camping available, the celebration is a disc golf immersion experience.
