The Dragan Disc Golf Classic is in its sixteenth year and 2016 marks the fifth year since the return of the classic one-day, noon start format for which the tournament is famous.
As a PDGA B-tier event, the pro purse will have a minimum of $500 added, with the possibility of more added depending on sponsorship. Twenty spots will be reserved for the Pro Open & Pro Women’s divisions through May 21, 2016. After that, if any of those twenty spots remain, they will opened up on a first-come, first-served basis.
For the 10th consecutive year, the champions of the MPO, FPO, and MA1 divisions at the DDGC will earn free entry into the Eric C Yetter Champions Cup PDGA A-tier, held on July 23-24, 2016 in Newtown PA. Additionally, the top finishers in MA1 will earn invitations to the 2017 United States Amateur Disc Golf Championships in Milford MI.
Total player capacity is just 72 players. Past DDGCs have sold out in advance, including last year selling out nearly two months before the event. Do not miss your chance to sign up and play this historic event.
Online and mail-in pre-registration will open on February 1, 2016. Mark that date and don’t miss out on your chance to take part in the longest running and perennially one of the biggest PDGA events in Maine.
