An update from the Tournament Director of the 2021 Queensland Disc Golf Championships. This update was emailed to all players registered to compete in the Qld Champs. If you did not receive the email your contact details will need to be updated with ADG and the Tournament Director (Bruce). To update Bruce with your current email address, please email firstname.lastname@example.org
Some housekeeping and updates for the Champs… A long one I’m afraid.
- Course assignment
- ALL players play Alexander Clark Park (ACP) on Sunday with tee times – to be advised on the event page Saturday night
- Logan Gardens (LG) – the following divisions play LG on Saturday for 2 rounds, tee off 9am, registration and player packs open 8-8.30am:
MA4, FA4, FA2, MA50
- ACP – the remaining divisions play ACP on Saturday for 2 rounds, tee off 9am, registration and player packs 8-8.30am:

- COVID-19: current Qld Health directives run until 16 July – the day before the tourney. If there is no change or reductions in restrictions, we will be right to play without significant restrictions.
Irrespective, there’s a few things that we’ll do to be safe:
- Players meeting will be online – details will be posted on the event page, as well as by email
- After registration on-course, play will start on the tee of your group’s hole at 9am sharp. Course & starting holes will be posted Friday night for Saturday’s morning rounds and at lunchtime for Saturday’s afternoon rounds. All players will be at ACP on Sunday at tee times to be posted the night before
- All players are to possess face masks at the event, and use when social distancing is not practical. Wearing during play or at other times will be at your discretion
- Players are to handle only their own discs and equipment, and minimise contact with course equipment (esp baskets). Scoring will be electronic, with a paper check card per group – scorers only to handle the respective scoring platform. Hi-fives and other personal contact is discouraged
- At Event HQ, there will be vendors with discs. Players are to maintain social distancing, and minimise handling of discs
- Player packs will be distributed at registration at both courses. Players are to maintain social distancing
- Unfortunately no formal social event will be held, given the current restrictions on indoor numbers
- Players who have completed their rounds on Sunday are welcome to spectate with later groups, but social distancing is required
- The awards ceremony will be adjacent to HQ at ACP, and social distancing or mask wearing is required
- COVID cancellation – if things change and we are forced to cancel, we will advise ASAP, and the event will be rescheduled if possible – potentially 9-10 October
- Payment – a number of intending players have not paid their registration fee, and those players for which payment has not been received by COB Friday 9 July will be struck off the lists. No shirt fees: $80 Pro, $50 Am
Payment ID with “QDGC <firstname> <ADG#>” :
A/c BSB: 032028
A/c No.: 640268
A/c name: Queensland Disc Golf Inc
- Dress code – PDGA requires a dress code to be respected to enhance the image of the sport for the benefit of the players and the sport as a whole. The Dress Code is copied from PDGA at the end of the email
- ACP course is marked out if you wish to practice, LG is similar to league layout with the few updates noted in the recent update on the event page
This email will be posted on the event page as well, as I suspect some of the email addresses that are included are no longer valid. If you’re not sure what email address ADG has, please check them and update if necessary.

appropriately and to maintain a clean and well-groomed appearance at all event sites
and associated functions.
