Players self–select one of three ratings-based divisions (Green 750-849, White 850-924, Gold 925-1000) in the prize-only, PDGA-sanctioned disc golf event to calibrate the tees, pins and par for the course to be used in the 2015 PDGA Pro Disc Golf World Championships.
Prize awards and a preview of the 2015 Worlds tournament follow the all-you-can eat buffet dinner at Camp Kon-0-Kwee, located near Zelienople about 25 minutes south of Slippery Rock.
A VIP pass, including the Saturday Throwdown Calibration round, Hoedown dinner, Fireside Social, overnight accommodations, breakfast and lunch for the Envisioning 2015 Pittsburgh Worlds sessions, as well as a round of disc golf is the “all in” experience. However, options are designed for everyone to participate.
