PDGA Leagues?

PDGA Leagues will allow players to earn PDGA ratings and PDGA tour points just like they would at PDGA Tournaments. Non-PDGA members are encouraged to participate in our leagues as we will be using a universal point system allowing all players the chance to win.

Work Days Reward:

We will incorporate a bonus league points or “extra credit” for players who volunteer at the club work days on the mornings of league play. Work Days begin at 9:00 am and end around noon. Players must participate for at least 3 hours to earn these bonus points.

Fairmont Format:

We will meet at the Pavilion by #1 at 2:00 PM each Saturday and take registrations. Once split into groups, simply play your round, turn in the scorecard and you are done. This format will eliminate wait time at the end of your round. The TD will submit the scores to the PDGA web site after each league where they will be listed online for you to review.
