Three-way Throwdown at Muletown

While the rest of the disc golf world winds down as players conclude their seasons, another storm is brewing at Woodland Park.  A Three-way Throwdown at Muletown featuring bitter rivals looking to settle the score once and for all. Who is the real “Mr #1”?

Fresh off his dominating victory at the Ambassador’s Cup, Drake Abernathy has set his sights towards two familiar foes.  Alex Phelps, Mr. #1’s first challenger, will attempt to avenge his 1 stroke loss against Drake in a sudden death playoff. Conversely, Dave Quint is confident that he will once again dominate Drake and juggle his way to victory.

Clubs from around the area are weighing inNashville

Announcing the PDGA Sanctioned 2017 Fall League

We’re happy to announce that our 2017 Muletown Fall League will be PDGA sanctioned! The information below gives a partial overview of how the league will work. Please contact us on Facebook or contact Chris Arant if you have any questions. This is a new format for the club, so please don’t be shy about asking questions.

League Schedule

  • September 16 through November 18
  • 9 Rounds
  • Every Saturday – 8:30am signup / 9am tee-off (no round on October 7th)
  • Club will meet at the pavilion next to basket #12

League Format

 Divisions Entry Fees
 Advanced (MA1) $35
 Intermediate (MA2) $25
 Intermediate Women (FA2) $20
Recreational (MA3) $20

  • Singles, raw score / no handicap
  • All rounds will be played from the short tee pads
  • PDGA points based, accumulated throughout the league

League Winner(s) and Payouts

$3 CTP and $2 club ace pot will be offered every week

Division winner(s) will receive a cash payout. Payouts will be determined based on the number of players participating within your respective division and the entry fees collected among others in your division. Potential payouts to 2nd, 3rd, 4th, etc will be based on the number of participants within the division (more players in the division = more places paid out).

Roughly 75%-85% of league entry fees will be paid back out to the players. Club takes $5 from each entry fee to cover PDGA sanctioning fees and club insurance expense.

What PDGA sanctioning means and why it’s AWESOME

A PDGA sanctioned league is a big step forward for Muletown Disc Golf. All league participants will receive an unofficial PDGA rating regardless of your membership status. Each PDGA member will receive an official rating from each league round attended that will be included in that player’s total average rating. Non-PDGA members can sign up for the PDGA before the close of the league to maintain the ratings they received during the league rounds.

Players can use this PDGA rating to determine which division they should compete in when playing PDGA tournaments.

Note: Non-PDGA members signing up after Oct 1st, 2017 will have their membership carried over to cover all of 2018!

***Attention PDGA Rated Club Members*** We NEED you to participate in this league. The PDGA requires “propagators” (PDGA rated members) to participate in each round in order to calculate an unofficial rating for all non-PDGA members.

Questions?

Please ASK. More details will be posted about this league, but I imagine that the PDGA side of this league is foreign to the majority of our members. If you have a question, please feel free to ask on Facebook or when you see board members out on the course.

SUMMARY – Vegas odds

Looking back at Muletown’s Spring League, Dave Quint averaged 2 stokes better than Mr Abernathy during league play. Dave also won 3 of 6 matches head to head against Drake during the league with Drake taking 2 and 1 ending in a tie.

Initial reaction would be to take Dave Quint for the win, but smart money knows that Dave also recently underwent surgery, so there’s question around his ability to compete at the same level he did during league. Drake Abernathy has also been rising in the disc golf ranks recently picking up a sponsorship from RippitDiscGolf.

Vegas has set the line at an even 50/50. Nobody knows how it’ll play out. Grab your cash and/or silver bullion and BET THE HOUSE!
