Welcome to our web site.
Our goal at Firefly Disc Golf is to run the best disc golf events and provide a valuable service to the disc golf community. We believe we offer some of the best tournaments, provide excellent course design advice, and promote our great sport through contacts with local clubs, parks departments and local businesses. We would love to do a better job so feel free to let us know how we can help you!
Plans are underway for the 2015 Bad Monkey Open. This will once again be a PDGA sanctioned 'B' Tier tournament at Leverich Park in Vancouver, Washington. The event will run with two flights of Amateur ONLY players totalling 100 on Saturday and Sunday, June 27-28, 2015. Bad Monkey Bikes on Broadway is (of course) our title sponsor and promises to sweeten the pot with awesome swag and increasing the scrip payout by 30%. Lunch will be provided on Sunday for all players.
The 2013 Next Adventure Amateur Championship was held at the prestigious Blue Lake Disc Golf Course in Fairview, Oregon, August 24th and 25th. The NAAC is the largest amateur only event on the West Coast and has become a must-play event thanks to Next Adventure and Firefly Disc Golf's combined efforts to bring together a great player's pack, awesome food, and a smoothly run tournament.
Firefly Disc Golf is proud to announce two more sponsors for the NAAC.
North Bonneville 2013 Spring Series AKA “That Dam Series”
What it is: A little friendly competition added on top of the three PDGA sanctioned events at North Bonneville Disc Golf course this spring.
Which Tournaments are you talking about: Bonneville Bare Bones - March 17th, NW Contender - April 6th-7th, and Ring of Fire - May 18th. All three events are PDGA sanctioned and available for sign up at www.4DiscGolf.com
Where’s North Bonneville: It is located in Washington, less than an hours drive from most of Portland. Check out the course web site at http://www.nbdga.org
What will I win: Besides the prestige of knowing that you are one of the best players at North Bonneville there will be a major award presented to the winner and second place in each of eight divisions. There will also be a small prize for the winners and several prizes for “tournament director’s choice” awards. (We reserve the right to give bigger prizes if we get some major sponsors to join us!)
What does it cost to join: There is no additional fee to be a part of the series. Tournament Directors for each event are deducting one dollar from each player towards the series awards. So your only cost is the event fee to participate. But you were going to pay that anyway weren’t you.
How will you determine the winners: Using sophisticated high tech devices called computers we will gather the PDGA round ratings for every round in the three tournaments. We will then find the best 4 rounds for each player and use addition to give you a score for those rounds. We will then compare that score with the other players in your division and the top two players will be winners.
I can’t count very well, how many events do I need to play in to qualify: Since two of the events are one day events with two rounds each, and the other event is a two day event with a total of three rounds you will need to play in a minimum of 2 events to qualify to win. The advantage being the more rounds you play the greater the chance of having 4 good or great rounds to use for your final score.
What if I play in more than one division (Bagger Rule): Your division will be the division you played in the most. If there is a tie, you will be moved to the highest division you played
Firefly Disc Golf is proud to announce that the 2012 Next Adventure Amateur Championship has been added to the PDGA Supertour schedule. This makes the NAAC one of four events in the Pacific Northwest at that level. Planning is underway currently and more details will be available in March and registration will open in May.
The NAAC is August 25-26, 2012
The City of Canby, Oregon has approved a 12 hole course for the north end of Eco Park. The course is designed with the intermediate player in mind, but will be playable by beginners, as well as being enjoyed by more advanced players. Nine of the twelve holes are fairly heavily wooded while the other three are in an open field. The terrain is predominantly flat, with a little bit of undulation to add some variety to the greens. The holes are mostly on the shorter side in the mid 200s with a couple holes under 200 and a couple over 300.
