2022 Bald Hill Open
The Bald Hill Open is back!!
The second annual Bald Hill Open is coming to the Bald Hill Park in Clarinda Victoria on Saturday January 29, 2022. This event is proudly brought to you by the Melbourne Disc Golf Club.
The event will include two rounds at the beautiful Bald Hill Park Disc Golf course, and we have applied to have 8 holes in the Namatjira park which is adjacent to Bald Hill. You may recall these unique and challenging holes from 2019 Frost Toss.
The approval for this is pending so until we get confirmation, we must cap the event at 50 players. When we receive the approval the event cap will raise to 72.
When we receive the approval the event cap will raise to 72.
This is the very first event on the brand-new Disc Golf Victoria Tour. We are very proud of this and plan to make it a shining example for the other 2022 events to follow.
We are also using this event to launch our Play It Forward 2 (The Sequel). You may be aware that in 2021 MDGC launched the Play It Forward program in partnership with RPM. We purchased over $3,000 worth of discs to give a way to players who we found on courses using Kmart discs, library discs or had no discs and to members of special interest groups.
This campaign was very successful, and we are almost out of discs. We know that the program has started many Disc Golf journeys as we have seen the recipients of the discs back on the course with starter packs and friends and family members. Many of them have since become members. We are very excited about the seeds this program has planted and can’t wait to see what grows. We thank all of the club ambassadors who have helped distribute these discs.
Since the PIF program was so successful we want to continue it and ramp it up. In order to do this, we are calling for support from the wider Disc Golf community and we are using the BHO as a fundraiser to purchase even more discs and help us distribute these discs. Each player will receive a PIF disc in their players pack. They will be encouraged to pass it on to a new player they come across. We are also going to put any proceeds from the tournament into PIF discs and, in fact, will double it.
Morning round commences at 9am. Afternoon round will commence 90 minutes after Round 1 finishes (estimated to be 1:30).
There will be prizes for all divisions, many hole prizes and cash pay-outs for pro divisions. Who will be this years Bald Hill Champion?
The BHO is again on the Saturday prior to the Golden City Classic in Ballarat. There will be a pool of prizes that anyone who registers for both events will automatically be entered into. The draw will be held at the Golden City Classic.
All Amateur Divisions $47
MPO/FPO Divisions $77
All ADG divisions will be offered.
