How To Watch The Preserve Championship

The second of two new Disc Golf Pro Tour events finds the PDGA's Elite Series returning to Minnesota for the first time since 2016. But instead of the sport's finest shredding the hallowed Blue Ribbon Pines – the annual home of The Majestic, which was last on the circuit in its inaugural season but has yet to return – a new North Star State venue will take center stage.

And by new, we mean new.

The Preserve Championship will take place at the Airborn Disc Golf Preserve, a one-time golf course nestled alongside the Mississippi River that smooth-throwing local hero Cale Leiviska and crew purchased and converted into a soon-to-be disc golf Mecca in a matter of weeks. Normally sporting two tracks, the Timberwolf and Lynx, this weekend's DGPT stop combines the two into one super-sized layout, the nearly 10,000-foot Black Bear course.

Here's everything you need to know to catch the action from Friday through Sunday:

The Disc Golf Network (DGN) is the new home of live disc golf. Built by the Disc Golf Pro Tour, the DGN is a subscription streaming and on-demand platform much like Netflix or Disney+. Covering the world's best players competing in the sport's elite tournaments, a subscription includes post-produced coverage of select disc golf tournaments as well as exclusive disc golf shows, touring pro interview series, podcasts, and other segments only available on the Disc Golf Network. The DGN offers a PDGA Member discount of 50% to all active members, bringing the cost down to $4.49/month.

The first two rounds of live coverage for the Preserve Championship will be streamed on the Disc Golf Network, with Jamie Thomas anchoring coverage and multi-time PDGA World Champions Nate Doss and Valarie Jenkins providing color commentary. The DGN will also stream some content for free on the platform, including the final round of the Preserve Championship.

Action kicks off every day at 1:35 p.m. CT. Be there.
