The Dragan Disc Golf Classic is going on its seventeenth year and 2017 marks the sixth year since the return of the classic one-day, noon start format for which the tournament is famous. Nothing is set in stone yet, but we expect to offer no less than what we have done in the past for the 2017 edition.
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. A minimum of twenty spots will be reserved for the Pro Open & Pro Women’s divisions through May 20, 2017. After that, should any of those twenty spots remain, they will opened up on a first-come, first-served basis.
For the 11th 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 annually at Tyler State Park in Newtown PA. Additionally, the top finishers in MA1 will earn invitations to the 2018 United States Amateur Disc Golf Championships in Milford MI.
