We are on the back nine!! Thats right, we are less then a month away from tee off and things are shaping up nicely.
We have re-opened both the Pro and Am side of the Nationals to fill them up after a few last-minute cancellations. Now is your chance to bring that friend of yours who was sitting on the fence. Registration will remain open until August 27th.

Note that we bumped the doubles up to 1:00pm on Tuesday. Nate Perkins has graciously stepped up to run a workshop in Sackville, NB, open to anyone on Tuesday afternoon at the same time as the women’s clinic in Dieppe.
You should also be aware that we will have staff at the Beer Gardens from 6:00pm Thursday night to help with any early check ins. The players meeting will be at 8:00pm. As mentioned before we would strongly suggest all player attend.
All awards for winners of doubles events or the C-tier flex starts will be given out at the Saturday night banquet at Lords.
For anyone who has ever run an event, be it large or small, you would know how important sponsorship is to making the event better. We have been blessed with strong support from businesses all over the island and clubs both locally and from across Canada and I think it is worth repeating who they are and how what we can do to return the support. So here is a list of who stepped up and what and how to find them:
Bridge City Gunners Disc Golf Club – Representing Lethbridge Alberta, give ‘em a like on Facebook and stop in to play if you are ever passing that way.
Charlottetown Beer Garden – Come for the player’s check in and early registration. Enjoy live music and great beer here anytime.
C.R.M. Ready Mix – If you are ever doing a project on the island that needs concrete why not start here.
Everwood Ave. Brew Shop – Check them out online or in person. A fantastic supplier of brew shop products and disc golf goodies.
Fredericton Air Benders Disc Golf Club – A fantastic club who have been working hard to bring a bigger and better disc golf presence to the Fredericton area.
Greensmith Contracting – Landscape and design services and 16 disc golf courses built. Have something awesome you want to see created, Greensmith can make it a reality.
Hammond’s Plains Disc Golf Club – Another longstanding and extremely active club in the Maritimes. Check them out on Facebook and come play one of their regular events.
The Handpie Company – So delicious!! Hand Pies will be for sale at the courses and a stop into the shop is a must on your trip.
Hillcrest Farm Disc Golf Course – Play here every single chance you get, then tell your friends to do the same.
Huck It Disc Golf – Play here as soon as you leave Hillcrest, then tell your friends to do the same!
Hunter’s Ale House – Want a big plate of great food and PEI hospitality, here is your spot. Enjoy a afternoon or evening here and you will leave satisfied.
Kastaplast – A lovely addition to the bag. Check them out online, although I have the feeling you will get a first hand chance to do that once you get here.
Lord’s Seaside Cottages – If you are not lucky enough to have secured a cottage here this time be sure to book ahead for next year, or anytime you want to stay seaside at a disc golf friendly location.
MacQueen’s Bicycle Shop – Reduced rate bike rentals for Nationals week. If you looking to buy a bike look no further than MacQueen’s!
Maritime Disc Golf Association – The hub of the wheel that makes disc golf go around the Maritimes. Like us and come play!
Mystery Moncton – Owned by one of our own. Made for those who love escape rooms. Always a great time for all those who are curious to break out of the norm.
O’Shea’s Pub & Eatery – Located in Kinkora about four minutes from Huck-it, this is your local pub for the area. Come on in and show them that disc golfers are a force.
PDGA Canada – The hub of the wheel for disc golf in Canada, we really couldn’t do it without them.
PEI Brewing Company – Have you tried “Banging Chains” IPA? If not, you really should, if you have, why not try it again? When a company steps up this big time lets all do the same.
PEI Chain Smokers Disc Golf Club – Making disc golf more fun on the island since the beginning.
Prince Edward Island – Come back often, if not for the awesome disc golf then for everything else the island has to offer.
Rodd Hotels and Resorts – With hotels and resorts in many of the places you want to be you can always find a great room with Rodd!
Room Escape Cavendish – Same great owners as Moncton with a great island location neaer the PEI National Park beaches. Take time to make the trip.
Sackville Disc Golf Club / Beech Hill DGC – The original disc golf club in the Maritimes, if you are driving make the stop here, as its only seconds off the highway and always a treat to play.
The Travel Store – 1.800.565.5404, call from anywhere in North America and talk to an agent with almost 50 years of experience in the travel business.
Houck Design – They builders of Hillcrest, what more could you ask for!
UDisc – Get the app, love the company! They are elevating the game we love and we love them for it!
Züca Carts – The best thing to happen to disc golf since chains. The Kastaplast discs and the Züca Cart were made available through Ace Runners – check them out on their website and on Facebook and they’ll handle your disc golf needs.
*** DYNAMIC DISCS – They have stepped up in more ways than one. The entire Maritime region owes a debt of gratitude to DD and we wouldn’t be here without them. Go online, Facebook, or better yet make the trip to Kansas and the GBO for one of the best disc golf experiences you could ever dream of!
So that’s it for now. We will talk again soon, but we personally don’t think it is too early to start packing your bags!
