Supporting Disc Golf in Calgary, Alberta!

CDGC 1000, Disc Golf Event

2021 Edgemont Junior Disc Golf Challenge

ABOUT THE CHALLENGE!

The 2021 Edgemont Junior Disc Golf Challenge is the Calgary Disc Golf Club’s (CDGC) second event for the JUNIOR disc golf season for under age 18 youth. It’s about fun and growing the disc golf community. Those new to the sport are welcome too! 

The location is the Edgemont Disc Golf Course. We will use the existing 11 hole locations, but with portable baskets and each child will be eligible for a group disc golf lesson prior to their first round. Two rounds will be played. We might even have a putting contest and other fun stuff!

Player cards will be setup to meet or exceed current Alberta Health Services COVID-19 restrictions. We will endeavor to pair up friends if possible. Cards will likely range from 2-4 players. Experienced CDGC players will be on site to cheer kids on and assist with play (in a socially distanced fashion). 

Bring at least one disc! If you are a beginner, any conventional ‘frisbee’ style disc will do. Typically as people get better they specialize into disc golf discs. So don’t worry!

What is the challenge at Edgemont? Wind, hills/slopes and short distances – birdie potential! 

NEW PLAYERS:

More About Format
