***postponed****2020 Fountain Hills Women’s Open, a PDGA Women’s Global Event

The Fountain Hills Disc Golf Club is happy to host our 3rd biennial PDGA Women’s Global Event Disc Golf Tournament, the Fountain Hills Women’s Open presented by Avid Contracting LLC.

2020 PDGA Women’s Global Event Fountain Hills

The PDGA Women’s Committee is very pleased to announce the fifth edition of the PDGA Women’s Global Event on May 9th, 2020. Inaugurated in 2012, this biennial event continues to break records as the largest PDGA event for a single demographic within the sport of disc golf. In 2018 there were 80 registered tournaments, spanning 39 states and 14 countries with a combined turnout of 2092 women competing in 23 different PDGA divisions. We can break that record again in 2020!

How It Works

On May 9th, women from all around the world will play two rounds of disc golf at their local participating PDGA Women’s Global Event. Scores from the first two rounds of each participating tournament will be submitted by the individual tournament directors and rated by the PDGA. These round ratings will be totaled and averaged to determine the player’s “Global Score.” For the rounds to qualify, the event must include two rounds and have at least three ratings propagators playing on the same course layout each round for ratings to be calculated as accurately as possible. Please note, the exact same course layout must be used for both rounds. The Global Scores will be updated throughout the day to determine our PDGA Women’s Global Event Champions and the winner in each division will receive a memorable trophy.

*Note for Juniors 12 and Under: As in 2018, Juniors 12 and under will have only one round (the first round on Saturday May 9th, 2020) included into the overall PDGA Women’s Global Event.  The layout played by Juniors must have at least 3 propagators (with 8 officially rated rounds of 700+) playing that same layout to get an accurate rating for the PDGA Women’s Global Event.

My First Disc Golf Ace!??

A few months ago I hit a 150-200′ ace in a tournament.. but I don’t think it counts because it was an Ace Race tournament.

This evening I hit a 200′ ace from an actual tee-pad to a permanent basket.. but I don’t think it counts because I was in solo-practice mode.

So what qualifies as a legit-respected-actual Ace? I think these are no-brainers:



Spinners

Spinners.. Lost & Found

Check it out.. found a disc? Consider it $3.00 towards new plastic, new gear, or a 6 pack of cold mountain dew. Each found disc is $3.00 in store credit at Spinners On The Green? Lost a disc, check out the Spinners On The Green Lost & Found page.. it is updated weekly. Over past few years.. I’ve recovered a pile of discs.
