For those of us in the north welcome to the winter disc golf season. Keep warm and throw often. We will keep this update brief so we can all go back to warming our hands by the fire.
Lets start this off by getting a little more excited about our featured ‘pro’ course with some words from the maker himself:
Internationally renowned course designer John Houck designed our main course, Hillcrest Farm, and we recently asked him for some feedback on it since his recent visit this past summer. John replied with “I put Hillcrest Farm in my personal top tier of courses I’ve been involved with. It’s in the same league as the Selah courses, Harmony Bends, and Frost Valley, for example. It has some of my favorite holes, and I think it matches my best work as far as challenge, fun, fairness, variety, and beauty. And, like any top-rated course, it has that additional “X” factor – there’s just something about the place and the people that lets you know you’re about to have a special experience, even before you step onto the course. We’re very excited that Hillcrest farm will be hosting the Canadian Nationals, and we’re glad to know that a whole new group of players will get to experience the magic of the venue the Best family has created.”
We have had a lot of interest from Pros from all over the world and we are expecting a great turnout. We have been in talks to add a third course if needed and our group is committed to making 2018 the biggest and best Canadian Nationals to date. As mentioned in a previous update the main cottages at Lord’s Seaside Cabins are all booked, but you can still call Elayne (1 888 228 6765) to have her book you a cottage close by. We have also been working on lodging in the city of Charlottetown. We will update you as soon as this has been finalized.
We have also had some great success with local sponsors and we are happy to share these good folks with you, when you are in town be sure to check out as many of them as you can. Many more will be added in the coming months.
