NANTUCKET (July 12, 2013) - Nantucket Disc Golf is pleased and excited to announce that three former PDGA World Champion Disc Golfers will be visiting the island next month and will be holding several disc golf clinics at the Nantucket Disc Golf Course that will be free and open to all.

   

Avery Jenkins (2009), Valarie Jenkins (2007-2009) & Nate Doss (2005, 2007, 2011) are all legends in the world of disc golf, having won a combined 163 PDGA tournaments, including 20 Majors and 36 National Tour events as of the end of 2012. Members of the "First Family of Disc Golf", Avery and Valarie are brother and sister, and Valarie and Nate are long-time partners.

We are so excited to have these legendary disc golfers out to Nantucket during our inaugural year and we encourage everyone, regardless of skill level, to come on out and take part in the clinics and learn more about the amazing sport that is disc golf.  To cater to all skill levels, beginner-, intermediate- & advanced-level clinics will be held over the course of the two days.

Further details on times for the clinics will be announced shortly, but in the meantime, if you're interested in joining us, I'd look into the possibility of taking that Monday or Tuesday off from work so you can attend the clinics and perhaps play a round or two with the pros. This is a once-in-lifetime opportunity to learn from three of the absolute top professionals in the history of the sport at our very own, world-class 18-hole Nantucket Disc Golf Course. Don't miss out!
 

2013 Nantucket Disc Golf Open Results

07/06/13

Had an UNBELIEVABLE time yesterday at the 1st Annual Nantucket Disc Golf Open! 72 players from across New England descended upon the Nantucket Disc Golf Course for two rounds of action-packed competitive disc golf.

In the Men's Pro Open Division, Andrew Tabaczynski and Cam Gallant were tied at an incredible 10 under par after the second round. Tabaczynski birdied the first sudden-death playoff hole with a beautiful birdie putt and claimed the overall NDG Open victory.

In the "Caddyshack-Style" $500 Top 4 MPO Winner-Take-All 3-Hole Playoff that followed, Jason Dore birdied the first two holes and then eagled #18 (a hole which only one player had BIRDIED all day) to claim the victory. An unreal and dramatic finish to what was an incredible first ever PDGA-sanctioned disc golf tournament on Nantucket! A big thank you to everyone who made this possible. And congratulations to all our other winners at the tournament. We'll see you all next year at the 2014 NDG Open. Can't wait!
