2019 PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships - Confirmation Letter

Last updated: Friday, July 19, 2019 - 16:11

Welcome to the 2019 PDGA Professional World Championships!

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to Central Illinois, home of the 2019 PDGA Professional Disc Golf World Championships presented by Infinite Discs. We have been working towards this event for the last 4 years and we hope your stay in Central Illinois is enjoyable. We are incredibly grateful for the support of the City of Peoria, The Peoria Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, the City of Eureka, the City of Pekin, the Village of Morton, and the Morton Park District. All of these entities have helped support this event and without their support, this event would not happen. We have a world-class staff for this year’s event ready to serve you. We are also thankful for our many volunteers who have stepped up to help. We are also grateful to our biggest sponsors, including Infinite Discs, Discraft, DGA, Prodigy, Innova and Ledgestone Insurance.

Our team has spent thousands of hours preparing for this event, with more than half of that time spent revamping Northwood Park to prepare for this event. With the phenomenal support of the Morton Park District, we have transformed this course into one of the most challenging (but fair) courses in the country. It will be a great complement to Eureka (MPO) and Sunset (FPO). We are incredibly excited to showcase three world-class courses for this event. All of the courses are in great shape. We have several side events going on throughout

the competition week that we know you will enjoy. Here is a small window into what’s happening during Worlds week:

  • Sunday night (August 11th) we will host Disc Golf Night at the Ballpark, where players can take in a minor league baseball game at Dozer Park, home of the Peoria Chiefs. Food will be provided and we will get to have some players on the field doing some big throws!
  • Monday night (August 12th) will be our Players Dinner presented by Innova and our Opening Ceremony at Five Points in Washington.
  • Tuesday (August 13th) will be our first day of competition, as well as an ice cream party and our Main Fly Mart at Sunset Hills.
  • Thursday (August 15th) we will host a Pizza Party and some fun putting games at the Grove/Cannery in Eureka, IL, just down the road from Lake Eureka. The Cannery has a large selection of drinks, and we will be providing the pizza.
  • Friday (August 16th) will be our mini golf/ice cream party at the Roc Ice Cream and Golf Center in East Peoria, IL. Prizes will be given to the lowest scores, and we will be providing free ice cream!

In closing, we sincerely hope you enjoy your time in Central Illinois. Our goal is to provide world class courses that offer a unique challenge to you as our players. We have tried to create courses that resemble the US Open of ball golf where par is a good score. We hope that our courses challenge you to the best of your abilities.

Good luck and thanks for participating in this year’s event!
