This year’s Brewster Ridge Open marks the 5th anniversary of the event! It will also mark the establishment of a new name for our operation: the Smugglers’ Notch Disc Golf Center. For the past 5 years, we have been working towards an offering of two elite 18-hole championship courses complete with a pro shop and family friendly set up of 4 tees on every hole. While, we closed 2016 with this full offering, in 2017, we are happy to be able to, for the first time, to open our courses for the season (May 12th) with both 18-hole courses ready to go! Thus, we are moving on from the name Brewster Ridge and creating the Smugglers’ Notch Disc Golf Center as our overarching moniker. Of course, Brewster and Fox Run will still be the names of our 2 courses.
Registration for our first tourney of the year, the BRO V, opens at 5pm on May 5th. The BRO will carry sanctioning with GMPS, NEFA, and be a PDGA C-Tier.
This year’s Brewster Ridge Open will feature one round of play on both courses. We have are opening play to a wide range of divisions. The BRO V will also serve as a qualifier for this year’s Vibram Open as well as this year’s Green Mountain Championship! 3 spots to each event will be given away to the top scoring pros that register for the chance to win these qualifying spots!
