ABOUT the Challenge!
The 2021 Edgemont Junior Disc Golf Challenge is the Calgary Disc Golf Club’s (CDGC) second event for the JUNIOR disc golf season for under age 18 youth. It’s about fun and growing the disc golf community. Those new to the sport are welcome too!
Special thanks to the Professional Disc Golf Association (PDGA) Canada for providing a grant to help make this event possible and to DiscFlow for arranging a discounted disc order of player and prize discs just in time!
The location is the Edgemont Disc Golf Course. We will use the existing 11 hole locations, but with portable baskets. Two rounds will be played. After the two rounds there will be an optional area to participate in a putting contest, check your speed/distance and get some tips!
Player cards will be setup to meet or exceed current Alberta Health Services COVID-19 restrictions. We will endeavor to pair up friends if possible. Cards will likely range from 2-4 players. Experienced CDGC players will be on site to cheer kids on and assist with play (in a socially distanced fashion).
Bring at least one disc! If you are a beginner, any conventional 'frisbee' style disc will do. Typically as people get better they specialize into disc golf discs. So don't worry!
What is the challenge at Edgemont? Wind, hills/slopes and short distances - birdie potential!
More About Format
Totally new to disc golf or still learning? Players will be sorted into Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced categories. Maximum score on any hole will be double par; official results will be adjusted accordingly.
More details about start times and how to report in your child's score will be emailed out in the days leading up to the Challenge. We do encourage you to look up the Edgemont course on UDisc and install the Udisc app on your mobile device!

When registering, you will be asked to list 1-2 of your child’s friends also participating in the event. You will also be asked to indicate your child's skill level.
The Parent or Legal Guardian registering the child must agree to the RELEASE OF LIABILITY, ASSUMPTION OF RISK AND MEDIA RELEASE AGREEMENT in order for the child to participate in the Challenge. This is done through the Registration form.
Important: When registering your child, enter the child's name first. Later in the form is a spot to enter your name as the parent or legal guardian. Watch out for auto-fill as it likely will replace the child's name with yours.
Please go over safety with your child, as with every sport! Issues include, but are not limited to: getting hit by a disc, slips, trips, falls, the effect of pre-existing medical conditions and inclement weather.
