The first big day of 2019 is here! As of 8pm AST tonight (7pm EST) registration will be open for this year’s Canadian National Championship, driven by Innova. We know it will be hard to top 2018 but every thought we have is aimed to do just that. We will have more Flex Start events at more courses, more food, a better players party, and still more to come as the months fly by. If you joined us last year, you’ll already know why this is a must do for disc golf events in Canada. If you weren’t lucky enough to be a part of the crowd last year, (Pros: https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/34385 Ams: https://www.pdga.com/tour/event/34417 ) here is your chance to come see the best of what this country has to offer.
The main event will still feature Prince Edward Island’s two current courses, the 5-star John Houck designed Hillcrest Farm Disc Golf Course https://hillcrestfarmpei.com/discgolf/, as well as the new kid on the block and local fan favorite Huck It Disc Golf Course. Both courses played beautifully last year and should be considered some of the most challenging disc golf courses in the country. Not only that but each course owner has listened to the player’s feedback and made modest improvements on their courses to make them even better and really what more can you ask for! In addition to these two gems we will be adding a brand new 18-hole course that aims to keep up with standard set for disc golf on the Island. The brand-new course at BarNone Brewery https://barnone.beer/ is set to do just that, with a local craft brewery on site beside it, making it the perfect place for a Flex Start C-Tier and a player’s party to remember. The Saturday night party will feature side competitions for putting, driving and a special CTP along with lots of the local things that make the Maritimes wonderful.
We also have a fantastic early check in spot at the Beer Gardens http://beergardenpei.com/ in downtown Charlottetown that is worth the trip into the city. We strongly suggest you all attend as this year we will feature a Pro Q & A immediately following the welcome and players meeting from our TD.
This is our first year with Innova as our title sponsor as well as our first time using DGU for all our registration needs. Just know that you do not need to have an account to sign up, but all players playing in the professional divisions in the A-Tier side must have their PDGA memberships https://www.pdga.com/membership current for the 2019 season. For a direct link to the registration please click here: discgolfunited.com/2019_Canadian_Nationals We have caps on all divisions, so you’ll want to register quickly to ensure that you get one of the spots in your preferred division.
Here is a look at the Hillcrest Farm DGC that was posted up on YouTube on Christmas Day for your pleasure: Champs vs Chumps https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WVNZR8Nauyk&t=173s featuring two of the world’s most aggressive players, Simon Lizotte & Paige Pierce. They make an exciting team out on the course!
