South Tahoe Disc Golf Association (South Tahoe DGA) was created with the purpose of maintaining and improving local disc golf courses and promoting the sport of disc golf throughout our community and the Sierra Tahoe Region. South Tahoe DGA operates as a not for profit disc golf club. All proceeds generated by STDGA are used to maintain and improve our local courses; Bijou Disc Golf Course and Zephyr Cove Disc Golf Course, and for promoting disc golf events at our local disc golf courses and in the Sierra Tahoe Region.
Happy New Year!
The 2018 disc golf season will be upon us soon and South Tahoe Disc Golf Association (South Tahoe DGA) members have a very busy season in front of them. Our volunteers will be busy with course maintenance and improvements at Bijou Disc Golf Course. We will also be busy conducting our weekly doubles & bag tag rounds, and the monthly “Soup Series” events. South Tahoe DGA is also the host club for three disc golf tournaments this year; the 2018 “King of the Lake”, the 24th Annual Tahoe Pro/Am and The Lady of the Lake.
South Tahoe DGA members are in the processes of designing a new sign for Bijou Disc Golf Course. The old sign blew down during a storm in 2016. We hope to have a new sign installed this summer. The new sign will include a course map, disc golf rules & etiquette sign, park rules sign, bulletin board, scorecard holder and a list of course sponsors. South Tahoe DGA will be conducting annual course maintenance at Bijou Disc Golf Course and continue with the replacement of the sleeves for all the pin placements. Volunteers will also be needed for our upcoming “Spring Course Clean-up Day” once the snow melts.
With the help of our volunteers, we continue to have great turn-outs at our weekly and monthly fund raising events. Doubles at Zephyr on Saturdays and Doubles at Bijou on Sundays and Wednesdays are doing great. The “Soup Series” broke attendance records almost every month last season, with the record being set at 107 players during the finale in October. Let’s see if we can break that record this year. South Tahoe DGA is the host club for the 2018 “King of the Lake”. The “King of the Lake” is one of the events on The “Steady Ed” Tour Series. We are also hosting the 24th Annual Tahoe Pro/Am at Bijou. Both of these events are part of the Sierra Tahoe Series (STS). South Tahoe DGA is working with the STS to ensure that these tournaments and every tournament on the STS schedule will continue to be well managed tournaments that everyone has fun at. South Tahoe DGA will also be hosting the first all women disc golf event at Bijou Disc Golf Course. The Lady of the Lake, a Poppy Series event, will make its inaugural debut at Bijou Disc Golf Course this year. South Tahoe DGA could not do all of this work without the help of our volunteers! Next time you’re at a disc golf course or at an event, please thank the volunteers.
