I'm somewhat new to this site and to the club, so this question might sound silly. Is there anything going on locally for the World's Biggest? I've been watching the site but haven't seen anything. I played in a tournament years ago, still have a mini, and was looking forward to doing it again.

Any help here would be hot!

World's Biggest Disc Golf Weekend at Lincoln Ridge

May 2, 2009


In May of each year, Kenton County Parks & Recreation presents a local one-day "introduction to the sport" event at Lincoln Ridge Park (formerly Banklick Woods) as part of the international World's Biggest Disc Golf Weekend. The WBDGW at Lincoln Ridge will be held on Saturday, May 2. The fun begins at 12:00 pm. (A rain date of Sunday, May 3 has been set ~ just in case!)


The World's Biggest Disc Golf Weekend will be held on over 200 courses across the country and abroad. The WBDGW has introduced thousands of people ~ of all ages ~  to the game. Please visit http://www.WBDGW.com to learn more about the history and scope of this event. Nearly 100 new players participate at Lincoln Ridge each year.


What is Disc Golf? Disc Golf is like (ball) Golf but played with a Frisbee or other brand of flying disc. Disc Golf is a game you can easily learn ~ no matter your age or physical condition ~ so you will have fun right away! It is free to play (no greens fees) and you can play nearly any day of the year ~ even in snow! And it is not just for teens and tweens ~ it's all ages that are playing Disc Golf. It's good exercise and it's fun!


Want to learn how to play? Here is your chance! There will be free demonstrations of the many types of "throws", including the Drive, the Approach, and the Putt. There will be CTP (Closest to the Pin) Contests, Putting Contests, and even Mini Disc Contests. We'll begin brand new learning sessions and contests at noon and again at 2:00 pm!


Don't worry if you've never tried Disc Golf or if the last time you threw a Frisbee®, it ended up on the roof! Here's your chance to learn from some of the best Professional and Amateur players in Northern Kentucky and Greater Cincinnati. They will be on hand to "Show and Tell". Learn how to make the different types of throws ~ backhand, forehand, tomahawk, scoobie, and roller! Learn how to increase distance on your Drive and improve your accuracy. Experiment with different styles of putts and when to use them. Learn the basics of playing Disc Golf, including basic rules of play and course etiquette.


The whole day will be dedicated to introducing new players to the game so bring your friends! Entry fee is just $15 and includes a World's Biggest Disc Golf Weekend t-shirt and special Innova brand Disc Golf disc (your choice of Aviar Putter, Valkyrie, Roc, and others in DX plastic). Don't worry ~ we'll help you choose! We will also have an excellent supply of Champion Beast, Millennium Sirius Orion, and Innova Star Valkyrie, AND fly-dyed Beast and Orion available for an additional charge to go with your t-shirt. Discs may be purchased separately. Arrive early for best disc and shirt selection! We'll be set up and ready for you by 11:00 am!


If you ever thought you'd like to try Disc Golf, be at Lincoln Ridge on May 2 for the Worlds Biggest Disc Golf Weekend!
