Disc Golf is coming to Florissant, MO!!

Gateway Disc Sports has been awarded the contract to design and install an 18 hole disc golf course at beautiful Dunegant Park in Florissant, MO.

This course will have a nice mix of holes are easy enough for beginners yet challenging for the more experienced. The Front 9 has short to medium length holes and is a bit technical, winding around and even in a hilly wooded area.
The Back 9 will be much longer and more of an “open links” style with a few par 4’s and a par 5 along a sloping hill.
One or two holes on the back nine will be in small bamboo forest.
Plans are for the course to be up and running by the middle of October!

 

Carrollton Park DGC Handicap Singles League – Every Monday

This Gateway Disc Sports sponsored league started on 7/23. Not only is this the first handicapped singles league in the STL, but it is also the first PDGA sanctioned league (optional) to boot!

Get ready!

 

For the first couple of weeks (while everyone is establishing their initial handicaps), the field will be broken into 2 divisions (PRO and AM). Since this will obviously benefit the more skilled players, the $5 entry fee will spread around a bit. $2 will go towards the payouts, $2 will go towards the 50/50s, and $1 will go towards the ACE POOL. This will give everyone some added value until they officially set their handicap. Once your handicap is set, all of your $5 entry fee will go towards the payouts. The 50/50s and ACE POOL will revert to being optional “extras”.

On the topic of payouts, score based payouts and SKINS payouts will happen the following week. There is obviously going to be a bit of calculating involved with all of this, so expecting those particular payouts to happen on the same evening just isn’t realistic. On the other hand, if time/light permits,  payouts for the 50/50s, ACE POOLS, and FREE CTPs will be on the same day.

Soon enough everyone will also have the option of making their league rounds PDGA rated as well. Here is a link to the PDGA website on this topic – http://www.pdga.com/leagues. Hopefully it will answer all of your questions.

Please post any questions you might have!

Hope to see you all there!

Results of Chuckfest 2012

This was another great year for the Chuckfest Disc Golf Tournament!! It was held in Calgary and Canmore, Alberta, Canada.

The tournament was a success and the Gateway discs were a huge hit. It came as a great surprise to everyone that they’d get such a cool disc to take away from the tourney. A bunch of guys were using their Wizards and Elements during the tourney and their shots always seemed to be parked next to the basket!

Here are the scores and a couple pictures from the event hosted by Kevin King!! Thanks!

Letter from a fellow disc golf player

At Gateway, we love to hear the success people are having using our products out on the disc golf courses around the country. We recently received a letter of thanks AND pictures. We are more than happy to share it. Here is an excerpt from the letter:

“I just want to share my story as a testimonial to the quality of your products and say thank you. Besides the dramatic improvements to my game, my time on the course has become more enjoyable. I am only beginning to unlock the potential for controlled drives like the Wizard!”

We really appreciate the feedback and congratulations on your 1000th under par stroke !
