The spring leg of the AT&T disc golf series has been set, with 7 events along the KY / TN border. Beyond local sponsorship, the series will be adding $250 in prizes to each event, and adding $100 per event to a year end prize pool for the overall series championship awards.
The late summer / fall schedule will include some new courses in both states under construction, as well as ice storm repaired courses in West KY for another 7 events.
New for 2009 (based on 2008 player suggestions):
All events one day!
No players’ fee taken out of entry for series!
Players can accumulate event prizes for larger prizes (the Bose basket plan theory)!
New Tennessee courses added: Morristown, Gatlinburg, Paris, Cedar Hill!
All added prize monies spread across divisions as percent of players in division (not pro heavy in payout)!
Most weekends have two events just 30 miles apart for you traveling players!
The events in newer courses are C-Developmental tier PDGA events, so just $5 additional non-PDGA member fee!
May play in any division offered, and get points in more than one division (ie: Advanced and Advanced Master).
Can accumulate points for year end prizes and series championship titles:
Points will be awarded based on finish, with ties both getting higher point total.
First: 10, Second 7, Third, 5, Fourth: 4, Fifth: 3 Sixth: 2, and Seventh: 1 point.
Top 5 finishes in a division will be used for year end total.
Year End ties for first will be broken based on head to head results during year.
The first event is just 30 days from now in one of the premier State Resort Parks in Kentucky: Lake Cumberland State Resort Park.
The park director has a special disc golf player rate in the lodge that overlooks the lake on one side and the disc golf course on the other side.
SPECIAL LODGE ROOM RATE: $59.99. Mention that you are in the disc golf tournament when you reserve your room.
