The weather is cooling down and the daylight is shrinking…it must be Fall. But, that doesn’t mean disc golf in Longmont is done. We have a few things planned in the next few months and we hope you can come out and join us.
First and foremost, we will be holding our weekly Snow-Glow Rounds beginning November 6th at Centennial Park at 6pm. Sean L. will be running the weekly outings and has a great fall/winter schedule with everything you’ll need to participate as well as a traveling week or two. The schedule has been posted on the Club Events page and more details and discussion can be found on the forums here. Last year Sean L. held these outings every week, regardless of the weather and conditions, and it was a great time and hope all of you can make it out this year and participate.
The other piece of news for the Fall season is that LPDGC will be helping as a host course for Winter Warriors this year. Jeff McCormack & Ray Woodruff of the MHDGC are running the traveling series with a stop here at Centennial Park on November 16, 2013 at 9:00am. Winter Warriors is a great charity based series with a weekly donation of $5 per person. All proceeds not spent on prizes will be donated to the Food Bank of the Rockies! In the past 8 years, their events have raised almost $39,000! Please help support this great cause and our neighboring club by coming out and playing the 18 hole setup that will be in place for that event only. More information can be found here.
2014 Tags will be available as early next year as possible to give you all the most time and opportunity to play for them. We will have more information posted in December so keep an eye out.
We could not have asked for a better day for our 5th Annual Lunacy tournament. This was our first year splitting the field and I think it went off as good as we could have hoped for. We had sold out our field of 72 late last week, but with a few no-shows we ended up with a total of 62 players. We would like to thank each and every one of you for coming out and supporting our club and sponsors. We would also like to extend a special thank you to Play-it-Again Sports – Longmont, who contributed immensely to the players pack and prize pool as well as spent the day with us on the course offering discounted disc sales.
We had a couple photographers out on the course taking pictures through out the event and they will be providing some fantastic images for all of us to share and remember the event. We will post more information regarding those photos later this week once they are edited and ready.
THANK YOU EVERYONE — We can’t wait for next year and hope to continue improving and growing this signature event!!

2013 League Award Party
Date: Sunday August 25, 2013
Time: 10a – 3p
Location: Centennial / Hole 19 (Dave M. House across the street)
The day will start with a 18 hole tag match just like every other Sunday Church match. Following the round lunch will be served across the street at Dave M. house (aka Hole 19). Feel free to bring food, snacks, or drinks to share with everyone. If you plan to bring anything, post it in the forum so we don’t have too much of one thing. Shortly after lunch we will play a 9 hole crap-shoot match with a Ring-o-Fire and prizes & awards to follow after.
Feel free to bring a guest, spouse, and/or family for a fun day of disc golf and prizes!!
As always, if the Ace Pool is not hit next week, the money will be used to fund the party and prizes.
I would like to thank everyone that came out to the 2nd Annual Charity Disc Golf Tournament in Longmont today. It was a great success and we raised a total of $1006 – all of which will stay here, locally, in the community, for the OUR Center’s “The Gathering” Thanksgiving meal. Of course, none of this would have been possible without all the work and planning from Katy DeJonge and Anna with The Craftworks Foundation and Old Chicago, respectively. I also would like to thank Chris Martin, owner, of Play It Again Sports in Longmont. Without their support, our prize packs would have had no where near the amount of plastic and disc golf related items. I am very pleased with the way the event ran, and I only hope it gets bigger and better each year.
The final results are posted below. A lot of great rounds were thrown by many players. We had some personal bests and some first times through out the day and nothing makes an event more fun than to know that someone had a true and memorable experience while playing.
I posted all the pictures I took through out the day. I have a group photo of each card and at least 1 photo of each player while on the course. I also have photos from the Ring-O-Fire and a lot of randoms. They are posted on our club’s Facebook page – Photo Album – feel free to tag yourself and your friends.
I also posted a couple videos on YouTube from the Ring-O-Fire and they are linked here: Part 1 — Part 2
This is our 2nd year working with Old Chicago in Longmont and the Craftworks Foundation(charity arm of Old Chicago) to host a Charity Disc Golf Tournament to benefit the OUR Center.
We have setup an information and registration page. Please register as soon as possible as we may need to use both courses if we have more than 45 entrants. The cost is $20 and payable by cash or credit card. Click the link below for more information.
