Out of an abundance of caution due to a rise in COVID-19 and Variant numbers in the Orlando, Florida, area, the in-person players meeting for the 2021 PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships scheduled for Monday, August 16 has been canceled.
July 29, 2021: The Green Gauntlet at Palmetto Point Park will replace the MetroWest temporary course that was originally scheduled for the 2021 PDGA Amateur Disc Golf World Championships.
Playing as a par 67, you’ll appreciate that a majority of the holes on the Green Gauntlet are shaded in the woods. But that will also require you to hit your lines and execute some placement shots to be successful.
Those flying to Am Worlds will find their best option is to arrive at Orlando International Airport (MCO) which is only 15 miles/24 kilometers to the host resort via toll road SR 528. The other option is Orlando–Sanford International Airport (SFB) which is about 40 miles/64 kilometers from the host resort.
Although other options exist, the most direct route to the host resort from both airports is via toll roads. Many car rental facilities can provide toll payment as part of the rental. Many toll booths accept cash, but be advised that not all are manned. For unmanned toll booths, your license plate will be photographed and charged the appropriate tolls.
For 2021, nine 18-hole courses will be used in the event. The bonus is that all nine courses are located at only five locations allowing us to arrange the course assignments to reduce your travel between courses each day. Six of the courses are located within 9 miles/14.5 kilometers of the host hotel.
