WORLDS

A large crowd gathers around the second tee at Blue Lake Disc Golf Course, site of the Final 9.

The PDGA World Championships in Portland, OR was a tremendous event. With over 400 competitors and 6 courses, Portland seemed to have disc golf fever throughout the week as evidenced by over 3,000 spectators on the final day.

At Brewster Ridge, we hope to continue to grow our own events in order to someday get to this level of competition and excitement. The Green Mountain Championship presented by Prodigy Disc is on our horizon now as we are in the final month before the event. With over 120 players registered for the event we should have a great turnout and competition here are Smugglers’ Notch Resort.

Don’t forget, we have Mountain Bike clinics and group rides going for the event as well along with live music and craft beer. We hope to have many Vermonter’s join us at Smugglers’ for the weekend of the event, September 19th-21st.

Brinster Visits to Begin Design & Upcoming Events

Brinster Design

Reigning US Disc Golf Champion Steve Brinster surveying land on the basin course, a new 18 Hole course coming to Smugglers’ Notch.

Brewster Ridge Disc Golf and Smugglers’ Notch Resort have a new course in their sights as our disc golf operation looks to continue to grow towards being one of the best destinations in the world. We have brought in Steve Brinster, a seasoned course designer with 12 courses under his belt to help co-design what we hope to be a course worthy of the highest caliber players and events. The process has just started, and solid dates on the final product have yet to be set. Designing with Steve was both exciting and challenging as we worked to minimize impact on the land and utilize the best natural features available to us while working towards a course that has flow and a unique style. We can’t wait to continue work on this beauty as soon as possible!
