Of your $10, $1 is for your local club. $1 is for an ace or closest-to-pin given away that week. 50¢ is a tour fee and the other 50¢ is a PDGA fee. PDGA membership is not required and there is no extra cost for non-members.

The statewide league is divided into four regions. The central region, hosted by Darren Holzinger, is in the Tri-City area of Kearney, Grand Island and Hastings.

And to the north is Zach Nickolite in the Hwy 81 corridor of Columbus, Norfolk, and Yankton. You can play at any location at anytime, mix and match whatever suits your schedule.

Opportunities for Recreational Players

10 Aug

ar_logo_mdSeptember 12, Lincoln – The Discraft Ace Race is at Tierra Park on 2800 Tierra Drive. For $25 each participant receives two identical Discraft discs, a t-shirt and other goodies. There are two temporary tees per hole and the idea is to get a hole in one (ace), or hit metal. You get two tries from each of the temporary tees and the most aces, or metal shots, wins a grand prize of a big stack of discs. Play begins at 10:00am on Saturday, September 12. Contact Emerson Welch to pre-register and mention your t-shirt size as they need to be pre-ordered. For more information see discgolfscene.com/tournaments/2015_Lincoln_Discraft_Ace_Race

Here is an opportunity to travel to Sidney and try the nine hole disc golf course. Might be some added temporary baskets too. For only $30 you get to play some organized disc golf, meet some other disc golfers, try a course that you probably haven’t seen before, and the player pack includes three discs plus some other swag. With gas prices being fairly low, I’m seriously considering the five hour trek across Nebraska from Lincoln.
