The Mentorship Program is a free program offered by the Calgary Disc Golf Club that pairs disc golfers with more experienced players. The program is designed to give players the opportunity to develop their disc golf skills, meet members of the community, and share their disc golf experience and knowledge.
The program is open for members of all skill levels, and will run for a period of six weeks. 2023 dates to be announced!
The CDGC will pair mentors with mentees based on level of skill, areas of interest, availability, and location. The pairs will meet (either virtually or at a course) 1-2 times per week to work on skills, practice tips, learn rules and etiquette, and play rounds.
The Mentorship Program offers an optional mentor / mentee doubles tournament at the end of the summer. More details on this event will be released at the midway point of the program.
CDGC membership is not required but encouraged. Discounts for memberships for both mentees and mentors through the mentorship program are available -reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.2022-Disc-Golf-Mentorship-Program.pptx

Beginner and Intermediate players who sign up as mentees can expect to improve their scores, increase their confidence on the course, and expand their network of players.
