NH Disc Golf: PDGA A-Tiers are Coming to Manchester NH
Well big news for Manchester NH Disc Golf! It is official as of today Manchester NH , The Hollows Disc Golf Course will Host not 1 but 2 A-Tier PDGA Tournaments Next Year. The first being the New England Disc Golf Championships (NEADGC) and The Hollows Fall Classic.
This is huge news! The only PDGA A-Tiers in the State of New Hampshire for Disc Golf Tournaments. The News was released today by Bill Bruce the Owner of Breakin Chains Disc Golf in Manchester NH on Facebook.
A-Tier PDGA Tournaments are a big deal. Only a few are awarded and the amount of preparation and guidelines are extensive. A-Tier tournaments or Super Tournaments fall under the same Guidelines as the Majors and National Tours.
So what is an A Tier? Well here is what we get to look forward too:
- 54 Holes of play.
- 2 or 3 days of tournament play.
- $2000 added to the Pro Purse.
- Must be a Current PDGA Member to play
This is huge for Manchester NH. The Hollows Disc Golf Course will have the second course up and running by spring. So we can look forward to utilizing both courses for the tournaments. A 3rd course is also in the works but it is unclear at this point if it will be ready in time for the tournaments in 2018.
Right now, with all the negative press that Manchester NH has gotten with the opioid epidemic, this is great news for our city and the whole Disc Golf Community. There is a tight knit group of Disc Golfers in the Manchester Area. We are all excited for what Bill and Norma Bruce has done for our city and Disc Golf at the Hollows.
So the Dates are as Follows:
3rd Annual NEADGC May 18-20, 2018
4th Annual Hollows Fall Classic September 28-30, 2018
