ADGC 2018

2018 AUSTRALIAN DISC GOLF CHAMPIONSHIPS
Get excited, as the 2018 Australian Disc Golf Championships (ADGC) are coming to the Nation’s Capital this coming November! The ADGC will be held in the beautiful Weston Park right in the heart of Canberra. The course is nestled on the shores of Lake Burley Griffin with fantastic views of Black Mountain, The Arboretum, and Capitol Hill. Running from the 23rd to 25th of November, the ADGC will showcase not only the best talent in Australia but also some elite international players. The competition will be held on a 27-hole tournament layout with big open fairways, tight trees, off camber slopes, elevation, water and vegetation hazards, and iconic Canberra views along the lakeshore. The Weston Park course has been developed over the past five years and the park has already hosted the ACT Disc Golf Championships (The Sizzler) in 2017 and 2018 which was presented by the ACT Disc Golf Club. This is one tournament that you do not want to miss out on!

COURSE DETAILS
The National Championships will be played on a competition level calibre course in Weston Park.  The tournament will be decided after three rounds of 27 holes – one each day from Friday to Sunday with NO Finals (unless there is a tie for first place). After the state championships in February this year, we had a look at the hole stats and player feedback and have made some positive changes that are only going to make for a better overall experience for the players. The course has been tweaked to create better flow and connections between the holes, eliminate some extra walking, and adjust some tee and basket positions to improve playability, create better scoring separation, and reduce impacts with other park users. We believe that these changes are going to make the best layout possible for this year’s ADGC. Course map will be posted soon!

SCORING
We are going to use the great resource that is Disc Golf Metrix for scoring throughout the tournament. It not only makes managing scorecards and groups much easier for the TD, but all players get to see live scores as well as instant results at the end of the round. We are also going to be taking metrix stats which include green hits, bullseye hits, outside circle puts and inside circle putts.

To do this, we need everyone to sign up for an account on www.discgolfmetrix.com and register for the event. Registering is FREE.
Only one person has to score on their phone per card. A second paper card will be mandatory for a check and as a backup. Players on your card will automatically be added to your scorecard once you start your round.
