Thanks, Ladies! EI One More Time!

April 4, 2014

Thank you, thank you to the PDGA and this little thing called the “Women’s Global Event”. The WGE is an opportunity for lady disc golfers all around the world to compete virtually with ladies playing the same day at other courses. Cross-course competition is made possible by the same kind of ratings-based system used for the Performance Flight at the USDGC (look it up). Last year our closest WGE was held at La Mirada, but this year it will be much closer to home. Can you say……..Emerald Isle?

At the time of this posting we didn’t have all the background info, but it looks like Brittney Breed from Emerald Isle and SoCal President/Aces VP Randy Wylot were able to convince the decision-makers at Emerald Isle to allow a 1-day disc golf event to support women’s disc golf. (Skip Winship was probably involved as well) Thank You!

The guys are going to benefit from this too. Since it will be hard to fill a 72-player field with only lady disc golfers, an unknown number of spots in the field will be open for men. The ladies’ field will compete in the PDGA-sanctioned Women’s Global Event, while the men will compete in a non-sanctioned Aces Rotating Monthly.

The event is scheduled for Saturday, May 10th and will be two rounds on the original Emerald Isle layout. Carts will be available for rent for an additional charge. Registration is live now at DiscGolfU.com: http://www.discgolfunited.com/disc-golf-tournaments/tournament-dashboard.cfm/tourn_id/1295
