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!

UPCOMING EVENTS

  • THURSDAY Disc Day @ Smuggs – July 31st
    • TNT (Thursday Night Triples) Visits Brewster Ridge! – 5:30pm @ the Pro Shop
      • Traditionally held at Waterbury’s Center Chains DG Course, this group-play event is traveling to Brewster Ridge! We will group people up in groups of threes and play a round of best disc.

    • Village Nine Glow Round! – 8:30pm @ the Village Gazebo

    • For those who come to league this Sunday, I will be offering a sneak peak of some of the back nine design of the new course for those interested.

Hope to see you on the course this week and weekend!

Brewster Ridge Update!

NEWS & NOTES FROM A REFLECTIVE WEEK:

Brewster Ridge has been enjoying the best summer of its existence this year. That’s not just a good thing, it’s a necessary thing seeing how young the course is. In our second full year of operation, we’ve seen our day pass visits triple! We are seeing over 200 rounds per week and most all of those are paid rounds. We also have seen strong disc sales as plastic (and some rubber) is flying off the shelves.

However, despite the good 1st half of the summer, we are gearing up to make a new push next week. Here are a couple things to keep an eye out for in the next week:

  • BRDGs 1st GLOW ROUND – Friday – 8:30pm – The Village 9 – park in the main Smugglers’ lot.
    • We have bought the glow material and prepped the Village Nine, now all that is left is for you to come out and experience it! Our Pro Shop Manager Drew Tolbert has gone all out for this one and it should be a really great looking course! The best scores will get prizes and we have TONS of glow discs for sale and purchase. $10 for a round!
  • Promotion for the Green Mountain Championship (September 19-21) Ratchets Up
    • Our first PDGA A-Tier event, the GMC has a big cash purse and the crew is working hard to put the finishing touches on the projects we need to complete before the event. Set to draw the best disc golfers in the world to our beautiful corner of Vermont, the event will also transcend disc golf and include MUSIC, CRAFT BREW, and MOUNTAIN BIKING sessions and group rides. We are aiming to draw in over 500 people for this one, get ready for a good time! Disc golfers; register HERE. Interested in staying at the resort for weekend of fun-filled action? Call Jason Nieme, group sales rep, at 802-644-1060. Jason has rooms available at a special event discount!
  • The Rekindling of the fire that is BRDGC LEAGUE!!!
    • If there is one thing, and one thing only that you should do, it is this: come to BRDGC league this Sunday at 1:00pm! This league has a truly magnificent set up, but we have had luster-to-lackluster participation thus far. It’s not too late people! We are only 4 weeks in, with league round #5 coming straight at you like a bullet train to your dreams. There are 12 weeks of play, and your top 5 results count. We score point series style, and if you don’t know what that means, click the link above and read about the details. Our final message is this: anyone can win this thing. We use the staggered tee system as our way to handicap. The top 14 competitors will qualify for the 1st BRDG Match Play Championship to determine this year’s club champion!
  • New Discs Arriving Next Week
    • It seems as though we’ve been waiting centuries, but orders are on the way and next week we will be sporting new discs from MVP, Westside, Legacy, Latitude 64, and Dynamic along with new DG bags, towels. Next Thursday we are looking to hold a special round of doubles. If you stop by, you will be sure to get to peruse this gigantic shipment of new discs. Who doesn’t like checking out some new plastic!?

That’s it for now! We hope to see you soon at Brewster Ridge!
