Just a heads up if you’re reading this, registration for TODG 2 at Rose Hill taking place on May 11th will close on Thursday May 9th at 9pm.
A huge thank you to everyone that came out and competed in Penticton earlier this month. You can find the PDGA.com results here for the tournament.
A quick shoutout to all the winners.
MPO Brendon Dejong / MP40 Chad Smoliak / MA1 Nick Perryman / FA1 Christin Wright / MA40 Ben Yastremski / MA50 Tim Quakenbush / MA2 Johnathan Munke / FA2 Sam Hodge / FA3 Kerry Stevens
Also a big shoutout to Sam Hodge and Shawn Black for their aces, well done.
We are 11 days away from the first event of the season. That means there are about 9 days left to register as registration will close on April 11th at 8pm. The Penticton Disc Golf Club will be BBQing some smokies / meat and veggie burgers if you’re in need of some lunch. Proceeds will go to the PDGC.
So here we are in 2019 and it’s time to start planning your disc golf travels and tournaments to attend. There are two additions this year that i’m very excited about.
First off we will be adding Penticton and a stop at the 3 Blind Mice course to the tour to kick things off for 2019. Over the years the Penticton club has put a lot of work in to this course and I’m sure it will only continue to do so. I am definitely happy to be adding Penticton this year.
We will also be adding the Ogopogo Open to the TODG series. This will still be the tournament you’ve come to love and the TD will still be the ever awesome Paul Brownfield, it’s just this year it will count towards TODG series points.
Details to follow on both of these events and others as well.
I am including some notable Alberta and Kootenay tournaments for you to consider as well. I believe we have done a pretty job of spreading out not only tournaments by especially the two day events. As well as those dates the Doomsday Series is listed here. As many of you know Dennis Greffard and his better half Christine have taken over the Doomsday series for 2019. Some big and great changes should be expected here and I thank Dennis for all of his upcoming hard work growing the sport of disc golf from the ground up in the BC Interior. Dennis is also the TD behind the Summer Solstice tournament in beautiful Wells Gray.

Hey everyone, couple of things here. First off I've updated the divisional standings page prior to the last even in Rose Hill. Looking over the numbers I feel like there's opportunity for some surprises. Remember that it's your best three of five finishes so some of you will see your lowest finish has been removed. If you want to check those out the document is linked here .
The Tour Dates and Registration page has also been updated with links to the Disc Golf Scene page for the 5th event as well as the PDGA Event page.
I hope to see many of you again at Rose Hill on September 1st as well as at the Ogopogo Open this coming weekend in Kelowna. Registration for that tournament can be found here .
A big thank you to everyone that came out to Logan Lake this past weekend. It was a beautiful day on a fantastic course. Now that we have two events in the books it's time for a points update for tour standings. Remember that a portion of the reg fee for every division goes to year end standings. Larger divisions will pay the top three finishers and smaller divisions the first place finisher. To see where you sit in your division check out the standings here . Your best finish in 3 of the 5 events will be used to determine where you finish.
Thanks again, and we'll see everyone in Clearwater in less than month at the fantastic Wells Gray course for the Summer Solstice tournament. There are currently 10 spots left so if you haven't registered do so NOW!
registration will remain for one additional week , so if you’re still considering attending the second event you’ve got a bit more time. Come get your win and score points towards year end standings ! And play Logan Lake because it’s awesome.
Just a reminder that registration for the second event in Logan Lake is open until May 19th. Remember that to qualify for year end points standings for payouts you need at least three events , and the more the better. And that the following day in Logan Lake there is a Doomsday to play too!
And registration for the third event at the absolutely beautiful Wells Gray course is now open as well. That is one not to be missed.
Links for all of that can be found on the Tour Dates and Registration Links page.
Registration for the second Thompson Okanagan Disc Golf Tour event at the fantastic Copper Ridge disc golf course in Logan Lake is now open. It will close on May 19 at 8:00pm PST.
Something else to definitely keep in mind is that there is a Doomsday tournament the following day there as well, so if you're from out of town make a weekend of it and play both tournaments.
I realized that I had forgotten to list a schedule for the tournament this weekend, my apologies.
Players meeting: 9:30
Tee off 10:00
Players meeting 1:30
Tee off 2:00
See you on Sunday!
PDGA Canada has very graciously come on board to sponsor the inaugural season of the TODG Tour. They will be giving away five PDGA memberships to amateur players who have not had a PDGA membership in the past. We are not sure exactly how these will be given out, but the hope is that the turnout at the first event will be large enough that we can award all five to players at the event. So come out and play well and hopefully you can finish the day with a membership to the PDGA. The Thompson Okanagan Disc Golf Tour would like to thank the PDGA for this generous sponsorship, and especially for all of the work they do to grow and support disc golf in Canada and all over the world.
We are very excited to announce that registration for the first Thompson Okanagan Disc Golf Tour event will open on March 13th at 8pm on Disc Golf Scene.
This will be the first in a series of five PDGA tournaments taking place in four Interior cities this summer. Also on the same weekend as the first TODG tournament in Kamloops, the day before is the 7th event in the Duck Golf Series; registration for that tournament can be found here. If you are from out of town then perhaps make a weekend out of it and get out to both events.
Be sure to click on the Tour Details page for a further break down of the series, and the Tour Dates page for information on individual events and where and when to register for them.
See you on the course.
