Both Courses are Open

Both The Hill and The General are open for play per the guidelines below. These will also be posted at the course entrance. Thank you all for your patience and adherence to these guidelines.

Please remember, during this period, the course is carry in/carry out all trash and no congregating before or after play..

Both Course still Closed.

Given the recent re-opening of some golf courses, we reached out to Devens to ask about opening back up. Their response is below, but the short answer is, not yet, and they will revisit on May 18.
The state is still restricting active recreational activities that involve the touching of common surfaces. Disc golf baskets would be a common surface that is a potential for contact and spread of the virus. Facilities like golf courses that have been allowed to re-open are allowed to do so only if they adhere to strict management provisions. We appreciate your taking the initiative to develop proposed guidelines however as this course is not actively managed, there are compliance and enforcement concerns. Active recreation facilities throughout the state are temporarily closed until Monday, May 18, 2020, at which time the closure of these facilities will be reassessed. Let’s see what transpires on the 18th and we can revisit this then.
We appreciate your cooperation during this emergency to help protect the health and safety of all Massachusetts residents. Hope you are staying well.
Please continue to respect the course closures. We will reopen as soon as we can do so safely. Thank you for your cooperation and patience.

******BOTH COURSES CLOSED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE******

Per guidance of the Governor of Massachusetts office to limit recreational activities in order to maintain social distancing, both courses at Devens are closed until further notice. Thanks for your understanding.

2020 Wednesday Weekly League Details


We're only about 8 weeks out from the start of Wednesday Weekly league! 

With Luke leaving us we've had to make some significant changes and do away with the points system and standings. Below you'll find all of the details of this years league along with a run down of the changes.  

The tags should be in within a week or so, and Matt will have them for sale at putting league when they come in. 

Bookmark this page for weekly results, layout changes, etc. 


Details
• Wednesdays, starting March 11th
• Initial cost: $20 for a 2020 tag
• Start Time - Hill TBD
• Start Time - General TBD
• Style (Trickle, Shotgun, etc.) TBD
• Course Layout TBD
• Format – Singles stroke play


• Season passes with a tag are available for $140 until February 29th.  Paypal devensdiscgolf@gmail.com via friends and family. Please see season pass post for more info. 

• Four player pools (A/B/C/D) – Your pool placement will be based on your average score.
Anything under 55.99 and under = A Pool
56 through 61.99 = B Pool
62 through 68.99 = C pool
Anything 69 and over = D Pool
These #'s are for scores on The Hill (standard baskets). You can always play up a division.

 We will not be running a points system or have season long standings this year. Instead of cash prizes for the top 3 players of each pool, the $ will go towards weekly payouts and the bonanza. All tag holders who attend the Bonanza will play a "championship" style round for trophies/bragging rights.  Trophies will be handed out to winners of A, B, C, and D pools based on the bonanza loop scores after the round.  

• Lots of raffle prizes at end of the year including more big-ticket items. Bonanza raffle entries are awarded by attending league. The more you play, the more chances you have to win a prize. Earn additional raffle entries by winning the skills challenge, or hitting an ace. We want to encourage tag sales, so the system will not start counting your raffle entries until you have purchased your 2020 tag.

• Players opting to play on The General will receive a handicap. The handicap will be based on last 3 years of data with nearly 6,000 rounds considered.

• 31 weeks of league play (last day is Wednesday October 7th).

• CASUAL PLAY IS DISCOURAGED ON BOTH COURSES ON WEDNESDAY EVENINGS DURING LEAGUE SEASON

• One round of singles

• If you leave before tags are redistributed, get someone to grab it for you. Alternatively, you can grab the highest #'d tag available on the board before you leave. If you don't grab a tag, take one off the big hook on the door and place it on the board when you sign in next time.

• Tags are in play for casual rounds and tournaments. Higher tag can challenge a lower tag and under most circumstances, lower tag must accept.

• The auto generated hole assignments are an integral part of keeping league running on time. Please report to your assigned hole at the appropriate time.

• If there is money in the ace pot at the end of the year, we will throw off for it at the Bonanza.

• There will be a year-end Bag Tag Bonanza to end the season. For tag holders only! Date is Sunday October 25th.



Weekly base cost

• Tagholder: $5 -
$2.50 payout, $1 course funds, $.75 ace pot, $.75 Bonanza

• Non-Tagholder: $7 -
$2.50 payout, $3 course funds, $.75 ace pot, $.75 Bonanza

Women’s entry is always $5.00 though same restrictions apply on ace pot and bonanza for non tagholders (see next paragraph).

We will have an ace pot this year. If an ace is not hit, the ace pot will roll over every week to a cap of $250. If the roll over is in excess of $250, then additional pots will be added. Tag holders who hit an ace will collect the the ace pot inclusive of roll overs up to $250. Non tag holders will collect only $ put in the pot that evening. 

You can pick up your winnings that night or bank winnings for payment at the end of the year. Players without a tag aren’t eligible to win the full ace pot, won’t earn raffle entries, and cannot attend the Bag Tag Bonanza.
