TD UPDATES :

03-19-14 Registration is at half full for both Pros and Advanced (96 total). I am getting about 12 entries a day. At that rate registration will be closed around Friday the 28th. You can mail your entry this weekend and still be pretty well assured to have a spot. I'll return any late uncashed checks or put you on the wait list. iRegistered.com is indeed working if you prefer that method.

03-20-14 Two weeks ago I was concerned that we would be playing with snow still on the ground. With several warm sunny days in the forcast I am confident that the course will be in good shape.

03-20-14 I will be working out of town for the month of April. Please don't bother calling as I won't be in the offfice. If you have any questions or concerns use email to contact me. randy@platypusdisc.com

03-20-14 Open division filled up yesterday. I still have a few Pro Grand Masters, Pro Master and Women spots. If I don't fill those in the next couple of weeks I'll give them to open players. The only way I keep a waiting list is with a check for entry fee in hand. I won't cash the check until you have a spot (otherwise I return or destroy)

I expect the Advanced field to be full by Friday March 28th. mail your entry now!

May 3-4 pro/advanced weekend is a PDGA B-tier event for pro and Advanced players-We are planning a fun event with 3 rounds on two courses at Standing Rocks park. We will be using new 21 hole West course consisting of permanent holes and have a 21 hole East course consisting of permanent and temporary holes.  All divisions play two rounds on Saturday and one on Sunday, followed by a skins match between the top 4 scorers on the west course.  

April 26 Recreational/Intermediate Amateur weekend is a non sanctioned event for Amateur players. We will play the two 21 hole pro course layouts and everyone plays two rounds on Saturday only. This weekend will include heaps of giveaways including a 2-disc players package for all who register by Friday, CTP giveaway plus a contest to win a basket . It will be a fun time!

We will have the course set up on Friday for practice.

Players meeting is at 9:00 sharp Saturday Morning.

We play Random Draw Doubles on Friday at 5:00 limited to 72 players.

Standing Rocks Park may be one of the better venues for a disc golf tournament - super beautiful vistas, a great lodge and tons o' throwing space.  The park is a glacial remnant of a recent ice age with a oak/maple/pine forest and huge boulders all over the place.  The course is pretty nice.  Radical elevation changes, long holes(300-500ft) half wooded and tight, groomed fairways and nasty rough, some may be reminded of Sandy Point.  The open holes play on huge hills that resemble Elver. Two holes are around 550ft and reachable by most. Our added temp holes really enhance the regular course.

This is a pro and advanced level tournament.  Our layout is pretty hard and fairly long.  The length of the course and the hills require a bit of stamina and endurance.    

I suggest that you wear tough pants and long sleeves.  Leave shorts, fleece, nylon and anything nice at home; you could get chewed up out here.     The course is ideal for pull carts due to the groomed fairways.

The course should be set up on Friday morning by noon or as baskets arrive.  Random Doubles at 5:00 Friday.

Friday and Saturday night some will meet at Mikeys (across from hotel) for dinner 

We plan to add $2000-or more cash to the pro purse and extras for the amateurs.

Our tournament traditionally has some of the largest PDGA Adv fields.  Bigger field means more points for those wishing to qualify for Worlds, Nationals or even the Wisconsin Tour Finale.

You must pre register for this event. Please send your fee ahead. Your entry fee is the only way to insure your spot.

Sorry, we can not save spots without a submitted entry fee. Sending in your registration with fee is the only way to insure your spot. First come first served. Please don't phone asking us to save a spot, simply send in your entry form and fee. And don't put it off, last year we filled five weeks early
