Disc Golf League
Make a difference by becoming a Community Leader. Start a league in your local area, providing others the opportunity to build friendships and improve their skills.
Disc Golf League
Starting a league is hard work! It requires time and dedication, but if you have a passion for teaching others about disc golf then you can do this!
Off to a great start! Do your research. Seek advice from other leaders with experience hosting disc golf leagues.
Decide between a WEEKLY or a MONTHLY
Remember to consider how much time you can dedicate to the league. Consider having a partner to share the time commitment!
Choose a Day/Time
On average leagues take place weeknights or weekend mornings. Consider typical work schedules and your own consistent availability.
Choose a Location
Location Location Location! If you're lucky you have multiple options. Choose a beginner-friendly course, typically a shorter one with possible birdie holes for intermediate players. If options are limited, consider manipulating the teepad placements and only playing 9 holes.
Obtain Permits / Permission
Contact the local club or the Parks and Recreation office to obtain any necessary permits or permission to utilize your desired course. Keep in mind there might be a monetary charge to reserve the course depending on whether you are charging a league fee.
Will you be charging a league fee?
In most towns the interest in a women's league is small. It can take time to build consistent attendance so we recommend starting your league without a fee. Perhaps an optional $1 Ace Pot. If you're fortunate to live in an area where you see multiple women out on the course then you'll have a better chance to grow a league that does charge. You can always adjust depending on attendance.
Now for the FUN! Choosing a Name & Promoting the league!
DISC GOLF LEAGUE
Word of Mouth
Never underestimate the power of Word of Mouth! Now its mostly done on social media, but still effective and free! Ask your members, local club and friends to spread the word about your new disc golf league!
Create an email for your league. This offers another option for communication and its free! You can develop an email list of your members to send reminders of disc golf league dates or other events going on.
If you could, wouldn't you? Having a webpage to describe your disc golf league, have a list of events, contact info, and to sell any league merchandise is ideal!
We are collaberating with leagues to set up free webpages on our website! Contact us if your league could use a free webpage!
