Hello everyone. My name is Chad Adams and I am inviting you all to come and check out the Black Diamond Classic a PDGA "C" Tier event, which takes place May 22nd and 23rd. Both days are at The Black Diamond Disc Golf Course at Emery Park in South Wales NY. the course is located about 20 minutes south of Buffalo. For those of you that haven't been to this course, trust me it will be worth the drive. I think of this course as more of a disc golf adventure than a disc golf round. It challenges the best of players. Par is set at 70 and from the gold tees I only know of one round at par. I have been told by people who have played it that this is a course full of signature holes.
Come and check it out!
You can contact me with any questions at (716)465-6305 or Chadams2691@yahoo.com

It will have a great players pack. All players will receive a disc, a mini, a towel, and a sticker, all custom printed with the tournament logo. All the discs are special run discs that will make your mouth water. Trust me you will not be disappointed!
The schedule for each morning is as follows, registration is from 7- 8:15 am with a players meeting at 8:30 and a tee off at 9. These times will be prompt so please be timely as to not miss the opportunity to play. Saturday we will play all of round one, break for lunch, and then play the first half of round 2. This second round will be played with the baskets for hole one and hole 15 in their alternate locations.
On Sunday morning I am proud to announce the following addition to the list of activities. After registration closes Sunday morning we will be going to the main baseball diamond near hole 8 and we will be having a longest drive competition. Each player will have the opportunity to throw two drives from home plate and the top three drives in each division will receive a prize. You may throw your drive any style you wish, for examples, back hand, forehand, roller, or thumber. Come and see who will win the title of the BDC Longest Drive Champion! What will they set the mark at???
At the end of this competition we will finish the second round from the day before. We will then break for lunch. After lunch we will have a final 18 holes, then bring it in for payout.
The following are the tee assignments per division:
Open Men: Gold- Blue- Gold
Open Women: Blue- White- Blue
Advanced Men: Blue- White- Blue
Advanced Women: White- Red- White
Intermediate Men: White- Red- White
Intermediate Women: Red- Red- Red
I also have some side activities that will be taking place to make the weekend even more fun. I will explain those things later though!
I hope to see some of you out there!

This awesome campground is only 12.2 miles from the course and is really cheap. Last time I stayed there I believe it was less than $15 a night. They have both tent and RV hookups.
