Redesigned as an 18-hole championship course in July 2014 by J. Gary Dropcho, the Slippery Rock University Disc Golf Links features many wide open holes around the SRU campus and athletic fields. The Worlds layout will use Gold and White level tees. Four holes have pin positions with water in play. Many OB areas and tall meadow grass frame these links-style fairways and greens with 20-100 foot elevation changes and strong breezes to challenge tee and approach shots as well as putts.
The invitation emails (and USPS mail for US members without email addresses) were sent out today for both Pro and Amateur/Junior Worlds. Any invitees without email addresses in their membership record, or who have opted out of broadcast emails from the PDGA, will not receive an invitation email. However, they may still view the same invitation materials here:
As the end of 2014 draws nearer and nearer, all we can do is reflect on what an incredible year it has been for the sport of disc golf. It seems that almost every aspect of the game we know and love is growing at an ever-increasing rate. There were more tournaments, more players, more added cash, more spectators, and more disc golf companies/manufacturers, just to name a few. With that kind of exponential growth, we can and should expect 2015 to be off the charts.
