2018 League Season Passes Are On Sale Now!



We decided to drop the price of season passes for the upcoming league season in an effort to get more people involved in the program. For $140 you will receive prepaid entry into all 31 weeks of Wednesday League and you will receive your 2018 Bag Tag as well. This is a $175 value (7 weeks of free league play!)

Please paypal the money (using the Friends and Family option) to devensdiscgolf@gmail.com with your name & preferred divisional pool designation for the upcoming season.

All players who purchase a 2018 season pass will be eligible for a special raffle at the Bonanza. The prize? A free 2019 season pass, of course!

The discounted season pass will be offered until the end of February but signing up ASAP is helpful so that I can purchase 2018 tags without any out of pocket expenses.

It should be another good season with a similar structure as last year. We are thinking about lowering the pro pot entry fee and the handicap calculations will work much better this year. Tim, Bill, Aaron and Luke will be getting together soon to put together all of the details. 

2018 league will begin on March 14th and will run through October 10th. The Bag Tag Bonanza will be held on Sunday October 28th.

2017 Bag Tag Bonanza Results


Thanks for a nice day yesterday! This is always my favorite event of the year as we celebrate another successful league season. We had a good crowd of 63 people and the weather was perfect. We'll hash out some details behind the scenes to tweek a few things but I expect a pretty similar set up next year. We'll fix the handicap pool for sure. Maybe adjust the pro pool a little. More on that stuff soon.

Put your pennies away over the winter for a 2018 season pass. I'd like to lower the price by a few bucks after looking at this years pass holder attendance =) 

See everyone in mid March!

This is lengthy but please do read if you are coming to the Bonanza!



Basic Details: 

The 2017 Bag Tag Bonanza is going to take place on Saturday October 28th. All 2017 bag tag holders are invited to attend. I do still have some 2017 tags for sale! $20 each. We will play one final league round of 24 holes (Bonanza Loop is 1-7 on Hill, 13,14,15 General, 10,11,12 General then 8-18 Hill in that order). The courses will be closed to all others until about 12:30pm on Saturday the 28th.

Register between 8am and 9am on Saturday morning. I’ll be set up across the street from the soccer field. Tee off time is 9:15am. Please just start at 9:15am. No horn

The cost is the usual $5 and you should sign in as usual for a league night and we will provide Pizza/Cookies/Drinks for lunch. Participants also receive a Trilogy Custom stamped disc. I have 100 of them! If I have extras at lunch I’ll sell them to 2017 tag holders for $5 per disc.

We got:

Classic Blend Judge, Classic Blend Slammer, Opto Compass, Lucid Convict, Lucid Freedom, Lucid Truth, Lucid Witness, Lucid Air Trespass, Fuzion Escape.

CTP prize of $15 Hawk Nest credit on every single Hill hole and many raffle items. In case you didn't know those who purchase tags receive a raffle entry for each league they attend.




ACES (worth additional point in standings & $$)
Pot will start with $34 at the Bonanza and we will throw off for a 2 or 3 way split of the pot if it does not get hit.




Banked nightly payouts – We will have these ready for pick up on Saturday morning. If you can’t get to the Bonanza I’ll contact you after the event to figure out a way to get the money to you. Amounts are posted here.



As of week 31 we have had 1,718 players. That's an average of 55.42 per night. We've sold 135 tags and have had 146 unique players. The following players have ended the year with perfect attendance:

Sam Misuraca (6 years in a row!)

You’ve each earned $15 credit to the Hawk’s Nest as a thank you for you unwavering dedication! They moved to a credit system so I’ll give Chris your name and you can redeem at the store.






Points leaders will be playing on a card with each other. I’ll preregister each of those players to ensure they end up on the same card. If you can’t make it please let me know:

A pool card hole 1 Hill – Casey White, Alex Gula, Aaron Little, Greg Bianco (all confirmed)
