What’s that, you say? You hate that you never have a reason to get back to Hyzer Creek between April Showers and the Battle of Saratoga? Well, you are in luck! Sunday, June 1st will be the day. Hyzer Creek Disc Golf Course will be the place. 2 rounds of throwing Vibram rubber inside the unforgiving terrain of trees, rocks, and water. What could be better? Well, I’m about to tell you.
$30.00 entry fee gets you 2 Vibram discs of your choice. It also gets you a Birdie Bash dri-fit shirt, a Vibram mini, and a Vibram towel. Vibram is also ponying up Champion discs, a Spirit Award disc, and a Vibram Birdie Bash sling backpack as prizes! But wait. There’s more. Since this is a Matt Bertram joint, and I always try to make it worth your while, Dave at No Excuses Disc Golf is making 2 custom bags to give away at the Bash. So take notice all you out-of towners! This event will have prizes you won’t have the chance to win at any other Birdie Bash.
Here’s a quick run-down of how the event will work:
-You are only allowed to use the 2 discs that you get in your player’s pack.
-There will be 2 full rounds of play.
-Points are earned only by getting eagles, birdies, or metal hits. The round is not scored by par.
-Players earn 5 points for an eagle/ace, 2 points for a birdie, and 1 point for any metal hits.
-The hole layouts will not be altered, but several of the holes will have their traditional pars changed to allow more opportunities to score points.
-Points for metal hits can be added to any birdie or eagle points. For example: Hole 2 is listed as a par 4. On your second shot (eagle opportunity), you hit chains but it spits out. You score 1 point for hitting metal. You then sink your birdie putt. You score 2 points for a birdie. You scored a total of 3 points for that hole.
The player with the most points after 2 rounds is the winner!
