Well hello there!
We are deep in the throws of another Canadian winter but that doesn’t mean we can’t talk about summer disc golf! As always we grow a bit more excited every day about Nationals so let us fill you in on some more details.
Registration will open Sunday morning, March 18th at 1pm Eastern Standard Time (10 am PST), using Disc Golf Scene. Registration for the Flex start events will open a few days later. At this time we are planning on at least two separate C-tier flex start events, with one at the grand opening of the “Huck it” course in Middleton PEI on, Wednesday Sept 12, and a second Flex start at Hillcrest on Thursday Sept 13. Both of these events will run from 9:00am to 3:30pm. They will be one round PDGA tournaments with multiple divisions offered. All players must play in a group of 3-5 people and tee off sometime before 3:30. A full schedule will be released for next months update.
We are also pleased to announce that Paige Pierce and Nate Sexton will be offering a disc golf workshop on Thursday afternoon at Hillcrest. Cost and time will be announced later but here is your chance to learn from the best and take those skills with you into the big event.
If you are still looking for lodging we are pleased to announce a partnership with Rodd Royalty as our host hotel. It is a full service hotel with 96 spacious guest rooms and 22 suites available along with a glass enclosed swimming pool, a 105′ waterside, a fitness room, free wireless high speed internet and complimentary parking. The hotel is located on the same highway as Hillcrest Farm Disc Golf Course (20 min. drive) and is a 5-minute drive from both the downtown core and the airport. Guests staying at the hotel are offered a complimentary breakfast. Special room rates are being offered to all traveling players and guests.

Finally our group would like to add a bit of legacy to the National event by offering a new award called the ‘King Cup’, named in honour of our Canadian 5-time PDGA World Champion, Elaine King. This beautiful trophy will be given out to Canada’s top female and male professional competitor and we hope this will be a legacy that carries on for future Canadian national championship events.
Locally we are still chipping away with winter fundraisers and online Waffles. Our full Maritime event calendar will be released soon so if you are looking at visiting us sooner than later checkout our Facebook page https:www.facebook.com/maritimediscgolf/ for more info.
As always stay warm and throw often.
