Record rounds played in August at Brewster!

August has been the perfect month for disc golf at Brewster Ridge! The crew has been working hard on the new 9 holes that will extend Fox Run to a full 18-hole course. While that has been going on, we have seen more players than ever at Brewster Ridge. We have averaged over 325 rounds per week throughout this month!

The GMC Field Expands to Include Current Waitlist

Today, Brewster Ridge Disc Golf expanded the field of our signature tournament to 216 golfers. We have invited all wait-listers and are currently deciding if we can grow the field to 288. We have decided to give all people on the waitlist one week to register. On Monday, July 6th at 6:00pm EST, we will open any remaining spots to the public. Since there were 64 people on the waitlist, there will be at least 8 spots up for grabs. If you are hoping to register at that time, please note that you won’t be able to register before so be ready to pounce. If we are able to expand to 288, players looking to register next Monday should have some more breathing room.

In the meantime, get out and play some golf! There was amazing DG action all weekend at the Maple Hill Open, and we will send some pictures your way in a day or two! Here are some shots to hold you over.

June Update

Well, the BRO has come and gone, the rain is slowing down, and we are approaching real summer weather here at BRDGC. The course is wet from over 13 inches of rain so far this month, but with a nice stretch of nice weather pending, and some excellent course maintenance, the playing conditions have been staying very nice! We have had many truly stunning days for disc golf up at the mountain, and if you haven’t been yet, you need to get up here!

Our pro shop is also fully stocked and has more selection that ever! We have been seeing Discraft and Innova flying off the shelves as usual, but other than those manufacturers the early season favorites have been MVP and Westside! We also have some beautiful GRIP EQ disc golf bags in. If you are looking to upgrade your bag to something really great, GRIP bags come with a lifetime warranty and are an excellent product for all types of golfers.
