• Shadybrook Park (Lexmark campus in Lexington)
• 2 rounds of 18 holes
• Open to the general public
• Player’s Packs for the first 25 people pre-registered

The Lexmark Championship is being held to raise money for the United Way of Central Kentucky. We'll have payouts similar to a PDGA C Tier event but this isn't PDGA sanctioned yet.... maybe next year. Top finishers and CTP winners are guaranteed to bring home discs. Details coming to the website soon.

The course is on the new Legacy Trail walking/biking trail, which opens the weekend before. Cane Run creek has been rehabed and we'll play the front and back 9s as a continuous 18. A good course is quickly becoming a great course.

I haven't had a chance to play that course yet so I hope I'm free that weekend.

If you wanna play in the Lexmark Championship and need a room, please say so in this thread and I'll try to negotiate a discounted rate. The "Marriott Courtyard Lexington North" is a few hundred feet from the course. How sweet is that?

Update...

Pre-registration is moving faster than expected. We're up to 20 players... so the players packs will be gone really soon.

Are there teepads, or is it natural?

Unfortunately, our tees are still natural. There's a pending project to install concrete or rubber tees in 2011.

The good news is that they'll probably be the best natural tees you'll ever find. Since the course is private (except for this tournament), there's minor wear. And we have two tees per hole... reducing wear even more.

Feel free to bring cleats if you'd like.

Our discs arrived today and they look great.

We have over a hundred of these in a bunch of different colors...
- ESP Nuke
- ESP Buzzz
- Elite Z Stalker
- Pro D Soft Magnet

Plus we decided to sweeten to payouts. Like 4 discs and a Discraft sweatshirt for the advanced division winner.

If you haven't pre-registered yet, re-think that.

There's been some questions about payouts. Fair enough.

We're not PDGA sanctioned (hopefully next year) but our goal starting out was to be better than a C-tier payout (85%) and hopefully around a B-tier payout (100%). We're trying to raise something decent for the United Way... but it would be a sad day if we didn't give away some nice plastic and random other good stuff. If 40 players show and we collect an average of $20 per player, that's $800 in. And... I'm estimating that we'd give out (retail wise) slightly more than that $800 figure. So... we may even break the 100% payout mark. :)

We ordered over a hundred tourney discs. 25 are for the player's packs. Around 40 or 50ish are for prizes... depending on the turnout ... top half of each division gets at least one disc. And the rest will be available for purchase.

Did I convince ya?

Hopefully no one needs convincing as this is a charity event

I'm looking forward to playing a new course

As long as you're playing disc golf somewhere else, I'll let it slide.

We looked at every weekend in September and October and there were no "Good" weekends to have this tourney. For the Lexington area, this was the best weekend, hopefully we can have a weekend to ourselves next year, and get some extra players. Good luck.

Results here... http://spreadsheets.google.com/pub?key=0Al84fJxkX-L_dFRqMkhhVl9EQk5CNm04UHNPRk96dnc&authkey=CPOtva8J&hl=en&single=true&gid=14&output=html

The disc and gear payout was over 100% of the registration fees (retail-wise). Plus I learned how to pronounce "Serapiglia". Massively good times.

Look for this tourney again next year. We'll try to set the date much, much earlier and I think that September is a good fit. My lofty goals for 2011 include (1) convincing facilities to pay for the installation of pads and (2) being a PDGA sanctioned B tier. Gotta have lofty goals.
