MDGC 2023 Club Championships

Who wants to wear the crown? The Melbourne Disc Golf Club will host a Club Championship tournament this year, with a brand-new format. We can all agree that MDGC is evolving fast, both in the number and overall quality of players. This new format will hopefully give MDGC members ample opportunity to qualify for the event before the end of the season, while rewarding the best players with a chance at winning.

So, here are the basics. The event will be held on December 9th. There will be five divisions, A, B, C, Women’s, and Age 50+. The A, B, and C divisions will all be in line with the rating system we use for Social Days. The competition will be two rounds, a morning round and afternoon round at two different Melbourne area courses. Current plan is for the courses to be Ruffey Lake and Bald Hill, with final word to come later.

To qualify, players need to register and then submit their best rated Social Day rounds. You will need to submit one round from each of the courses used for Social Days, including: Any of the Westside Courses (Stony Creek, Little Blind Creek, or Heathdale Glen Orden), Bald Hill, and Ruffey Lake. The HIGHEST RATED scores in each division will qualify. The rounds MUST be from an MDGC Social Day. For example, if a player’s best rounds of the year were a 900 at Stony Creek, a 875 (even) at Ruffey, and a 930 at Bald Hill, their total score would be a cumulative 2705. Their ability to qualify would depend on that cumulative score being among the best in their division.

We hold many Social Days at each course over the year, so this should provide ample opportunity for people to attend at least one at each course. Social Day rounds already completed in 2023 are eligible to be used.

Once you register, you will be added to the list of names looking to qualify, and we will start keeping track of your best rounds. We will send out periodic updates as to where our divisions stand.
