Championship Year for Carolinas
2012 will no doubt be an epic year for disc golf in the Carolinas. The PDGA Pro & Amateur World Championships will be held July 14-21st in Charlotte, North Carolina. Charlotte was host to the World Championships in 1986 and 1997, and is expected to deliver a world-class event.
The Presidents Cup also returns to the United States this year. This Ryder Cup-style event features Team Europe v/s Team USA going head-to-head in a match play format. Matches will take place on Tuesday afternoon, October 2nd at the Winthrop University Gold Course.
Immediately after the Presidents Cup, the USDGC also begins at Winthrop running from October 3-6th, 2012. For the first time in USDGC history, two flights of competitors will face Winthrop’s legendary Gold Course. Stroke play will once again test the world’s best in an Open Flight, while Performance Scoring will challenge the more inclusive Performance Flight.
