ABOUT OUR CLUB

Craven Chains Disc Golf Club is a group of folks who just enjoy the sport & love the outdoors.  We encourage everyone to give disc golf a try, and would love to have you join us for our weekly random draw doubles events.  You'll be hooked once you try it!  You can't beat not having to pay green fees either. 
 
Many of us have played the Glenburnie Course since it's infancy & others of us are new to the sport and have been excited to just get an organizing group of disc golfers together for some friendly competetion and enjoy the game on a weekly basis. 
 
We started our random draw doubles in the Spring of 2006, and feel like we are off to a great start!  We were averaging about 20+ people that turn out for the weekly double's events.
 
WEEKLY DOUBLES & MONTHLIES
 
'Random Draw Doubles' go every Tueday after daylight savings time in March and run till Labor Day.  Weekly Doubles is a great opportunity to meet new folks & enjoy a more casual style of play.  Our official Doubles Season runs from around Memorial Day till around Labor Day.  Sign-up is at 5:15 p.m. & Tee-off is at 5:45 p.m.  It's  $3 for entry, and $1 optional Ace Pool.  If you pay a dollar into the ace pool that day, and on your first throw from the tee-pad your shot goes into the appropriate basket you win the Ace Pool.  The ace pool compounds for the season until somebody hits it.
 
The way doubles works is.....you are randomly drawn a partner, and each of you will get a chance to throw from the same location every throw.  After each of you have thrown from the same location you and your partner may choose whose disc is in a better position to throw the next shot, thus your next shot is thrown from the spot you chose (just like "best ball" in golf).   Prizes are awarded to the top finishing teams, and the # of prizes will depend on turnout.  Closest-to-Pin (CTP) prizes are also up for grabs each week.  These are awarded to individuals on select holes, "that on their first throw from the Tee-pad are closest to the basket, after all groups have thrown".  
    
 
Our 'Monthly Tournaments' run all year long, every 3rd Saturday of each month.  This is a singles style of play, "every man/woman for themselves".  We have two divisions depending on your skill level and where you feel comfortable, we have "Amateur Recreational", "Amateur Advanced", and "Open" divisions.  Sign-up is at 9:30 a.m. & Tee-off is at 10:00 a.m.  Entry fees are $10 for open & $5 for am rec/adv , $1 optional Ace Pool.  Closest-to-Pin (CTP) prizes are also available for our monthly events and the Ace Pool (explained above).  The Monthly ace pool is seperate from the Doubles ace pool.
 
RULES and POINT SYSTEM for Weekly Doubles are explained below: (will post soon):  Same course RULES apply for our montly events.
 
ADDITIONAL EVENTS
 
In 2010 we began hosting "Monthlies" on the 3rd Saturday of each month.  We plan to host additional events in the future such as "Ace Runs", "Night Golf", or "Mid-Range Mayhem".  These will be more informal, just for fun type events (no entry fees/prizes).  Night Golf which usually involves Glow Discs and UV lights may take place after doubles a few nights, either way we will set a few dates and pass the word to everyone.
