New course coming soon!

We have some exciting news! Ben Heisey has been working alongside Mount Joy Borough and has obtained approval to install a NEW disc golf course in Little Chiques Park in Mount Joy, PA! This is a great opportunity to spread disc golf into North West Lancaster, where we don't have any courses yet. Little Chiques Disc Golf Course will be a 9 hole course designed to be fun, interesting, and challenging for both beginners and advanced players alike. The project is currently in the fundraising stage, looking for sponsors to support building the park. If you are interested in helping the cause or becoming a sponsor, please contact Ben Heisey at bsheisey@gmail.com. To find out more information about the project, check out the link below:

DD AM Match Play Doubles

The people have spoken! LAFS will be running a Dynamic Discs Amateur Match Play Doubles event. This will not be a one day event. Do not confuse this with the Lancaster Team Match Play event recently announced. That is a one day draft based event on August 10. This will be an ongoing week to week match play event sponsored by Dynamic Discs similar the singles one run the past two years. It will take place over the entire month of August. Each week you and your partner will be given an opponent. You may play your match at any time at any course that both teams agree on during the assigned week. Current PDGA members rated 969 or non-PDGA members who were never 970 or above qualify for this event. Cost is $80 per team; each player will receive a Biofuzion Raider and Gold Burst Pioneer as part of a player pack. Registration is on Udisc.

Match Play scoring is very different from traditional scoring and involves getting points for winning a hole as opposed to your specific score on that hole. For more details about the rules of match play visit the Dynamic Discs Match Play site. http://discgolfmatchplay.com/player-info-doubles/  A key difference between the singles and doubles bracket is that you only need to win a local qualifier to earn a ticket to play in the finals against teams from around the country at Emporia Kansas.

 

Awards for Local Qualifying Bracket

1st Place – DyeMax Trophy Discs + $250 dynamicdiscs.com credit per team 

2nd Place – DyeMax Trophy Junior Discs + $150 dynamicdiscs.com credit per team 

3rd Place – DyeMax Trophy Mini Discs + $100 dynamicdiscs.com store credit per team

LAFS Team Match Play

lafs-team-matchplay-1536940201-large.jpg

LAFS is excited to announce it’s inaugural team match play event! It’s a format that we are excited to bring to Lancaster. In addition to being a fun and unique way to compete, it will also help grow the sport by raising money for our neighbors in East York. They are currently raising money for a course just across the bridge (20 minutes from Lancaster) and we want to help them out! I mean we will benefit from a new course too, right? We are hosting the event at Herr park and hope to see those same neighbors in attendance with us. There might even be a royal wedding to unite the kingdoms. This event is for club and non-club members from any area.

This will be a draft style matchplay. We will have 8 teams of X amount of people (based on interest). Teams will be selected by captains the week prior to the event.

How it works: Each team will seed their players 1-x. 1 seeds will play the 1 seed from the opposing team, 2 seed will play 2 seed from the opposing team, so on and so forth. Each match will be 9 holes long, unless a match doesn’t need to go any further due to winning enough holes. This means every player will play between 27 and 45 holes throughout the day. All seeding is to be done in good faith. The TD’s may step in if a team is seeding out of order to gain an advantage. The team with the best record amongst the matchups beats the opposing team.

The event will start with a divisional round. There will be 4 teams in division A and 4 teams in division B. You will go head to head against each team in your division one at a time. The top two team records from each division will advance to the semi-finals in which you will play one of the top two teams from the other division. Winners move to the finals, losers play for 3rd place.

Payouts: 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place teams will be paid out. If you win your seed in your division during the divisional round, you will also be paid out something.

Ryan Davie and Jerry Dyson will be hosting the event. If you have any questions feel free to contact them.

Registration will open next week on Wednesday, September 19th @ 8pm at:
