Craig and Joey won doubles tonight. No aces, so the pot goes to $40. We have also started playing from the short pads every second week, and players of all levels are welcome! Doubles are Tuesday nights at 5:30 and costs $5.
Disc sales have been steady, and we are getting ready to get another shipment. If you need discs, contact the club. All proceeds from disc sales go back into course maintenance.
The RMOW will be putting in a new garbage/recycling can at the 1st hole. Please put all trash and recycling in the bins at the 9th hole or at the 1st hole. We also remind players that there is no smoking anywhere in Lost Lake Park. It looks like it will be a hot, dry summer and a fire on the course would be disastrous.
We will be getting at gravel dump in the next few days , so early season maintenance will begin soon. Any help in maintaining the course is appreciated, and work days will be posted soon.

We had our first doubles of the season on Tuesday, with 14 people coming out. Dax and Michelle beat Paul and Steve in a playoff after both teams shot -15. No aces, so the acepot is at $28
We have had to change dues a little bit this year. Due to rising insurance cost, membership is now $10 for the year. This will let you play in any DiscBC sanctioned event in the province, as well as doubles and bag tag events in Whistler. Doubles is also increasing by $1. The new breakdown is $2 for doubles, $2 for optional acepot, and $1 for the club. We are focusing on fundraising enough by the middle of the summer to replace the 9 tonals with baskets. They next priority will be badly needed teepad up grades.
Discs are here! We are selling Innova and Discraft discs in a variety of plastics, with prices varying from $15-25 depending on the plastic. All proceeds are going to the club for course upgrades. Email us if you need discs.

Lots of early season things happening. The club has submitted paperwork to become an official Non-Profit society, and we expect it to be finalized by the end of April. Being a non-profit will give us a little more recognition when submitting grant applications, dealing with municipal and provincial government, and fundraising. If you would like to get involved send the club an email.
Bag Tags are up and running. We currently have 30 tags made and they are going fast. The plan is to have a seeding tournament in early May to distribute the tags fairly. Please click the “Bag Tag” tab for current standings and rules. Tags are $10 each and all the proceeds go to the club.
Tuesday doubles will be running again this year. It will start formally in early May, but we may start earlier if there is interest. Tee off is 5:30 at the first hole.
Now that Katmandu has closed, the Whistler Disc Golf Club will be selling discs to fill the void that has been left. We will be selling Innova, Discraft, and Latitude 64. Keep an eye for signs on the course and the website for more details on how to get your plastic.
There is still a little snow left on the course, but club members have been working hard clearing teepads and the course is fully playable.
