High School Disc Golf Championships ~ Boys Division & Girls Divisions May 12 at Lincoln Ridge Park
Kenton County Recreation will present the 10th annual High School Disc Golf Championships on Saturday, May 12 at Lincoln Ridge Disc Golf Course. The tournament format will consist of one round of 24 holes.
With the 24-hole tournament format, records were set last year: Gabe McMichael (Anderson High School) is the current tournament course record holder with 76 and Scott High School is the current tournament team score record holder with a 5-person team score of 449.
WARNING: Due to recent poor participation (just 10 players in 2011 from a high of 53 in 2009), this may be the last year for the event. Pass the word.
On-site registration will begin at 12:00 pm with Player’s Meeting at 12:30 pm, and shotgun start tee off at 12:45 pm. There are separate divisions for Girls and Boys with the same Team and Individual Formats, described below. All currently enrolled High School students are welcome to participate! Players must provide their current school year ID. An entry form must be completed and a parent’s signature is required for entrants under the age of 18. An entry form is available here or at the bulletin board next to Tee #1 at Lincoln Ridge.
Cost is $20 per player. Each entrant will receive a Golf Disc. Those who pre-register will also receive a disc golf t-shirt. Pre-register by mail or register on-site day of event. Check-in will begin at 11:00 am at Shelterhouse 1.
Past winning teams include current champion Scott High School, Anderson High School (2010, 2005), Fairfield High School (2009 and 2008), Dixie Heights (2007 champion), St. Xavier (2006 champion), McNicholas (2004 champion); and the inaugural contest winners, Highlands High School. What school will take home the title and traveling trophy this year may depend on you!
The tournament will consist of two competitions: Team and Individual.
TEAM FORMAT: Enter as many team members as you can from your school. The combined score of the Top 5 members of your team will be compared to the combined score of the Top 5 members of the other teams. The team with the combined lowest score will win the Team Championship. You must have 5 players from your school to participate in the team competition. The Top team will have their school name engraved on a traveling trophy to be kept at their school until the following year.
INDIVIDUAL FORMAT: You do NOT need to have a 5-person team to enter the Individual competition. Individual players will be playing for trophies and prizes. The player with the lowest score will win the Individual Championship. Trophies will be awarded to the top 3 individual players.
Please note: Lincoln Ridge Disc Golf Course will be closed to the public for casual play for this event from noon until 5:00 pm. Please respect the players and tournament host and play another course or plan to play after 5:00 pm. Thanks for your consideration and cooperation!
