Another year, another record broken.
In 1999, Harold Duvall ran what would be considered the first United States Women’s Disc Golf Championships (1999 Women’s National Championships) in Charlotte, North Carolina, hosting a field of 21 women between two divisions. Now, 19 years later, the number of competitors has grown eight-fold, as 160-plus have made the trek to Lansing, Michigan, for their shot at the national title.
With two rounds being played at the short but technical Alum Creek, AKA The Players Course at Alum Creek Park, there was no way to predict the outcome for the second day of the 2015 United States Women’s Disc Golf Championships. With only one round of 19 holes remaining tomorrow, one thing was certain. For each of the women playing this weekend, today was certainly “moving day”.
The 2015 United States Women’s Disc Golf Championships got off to a great start this afternoon at the Gordon Holton Memorial DGC. Gordon Holton is housed within the amazing Delaware State Park (Delaware, Ohio), home to dense woodlands, expansive meadows, and a shimmering 1,300-acre reservoir that comes into play several times throughout the course. Once home to the Delaware Indians, this 1,686-acre recreational area offers camping, swimming, boating, fishing, wildlife viewing, and of course, disc golf.
That’s right folks, the 2015 United States Women’s Disc Golf Championships (USWDGC) takes place in none other than Delaware, OH. Or, as the locals refer to it, “Mid-Ohio”. Regardless of what you call it, this area is home to some amazing disc golf courses, two of which are being played by the USWDGC field this weekend.
Registration is officially open for the 2014 United States Women’s Disc Golf Championship! This year the tournament will be held at the International Disc Golf Center in Appling, GA and it’s once again expected to be the biggest turnout the event has ever seen. Regardless of age, gender, or skill level, the three courses at the IDGC that the women will be taking on between September 19th and September 21st can only be described as world class and intensely difficult.
