Gophertown Remote League 2020
The rules have changed and formats are new – please read carefully and good luck this year!
The Gophertown League night is intended to be a place where players can come out to enjoy a fun, competitive round of disc golf and be part of a positive group environment. Due to Covid-19 we are unable to run our regular league format. This year we will run a “Remote” League. Members will play their round at any time on Thursdays at the course stated in the schedule. Please make your own groups. We ask that you follow physical distancing rules and clear your own disc from the basket.
Players will have to have a Saskatoon Disc Golf membership to participate in League Night.
SDG Memberships are $30 and Gophertown League is $10. Prizing will be given out at year end with a playoff format schedule or a tournament if available (Government restrictions are lifted)
There will be no Closest To Pin, Longest Putt or Ace pot this year.
Gopher town League is held every Thursday night starting June 11th. Please make sure there is at least 2 members of the League on the card to confirm score. Score should be kept on the U-disc app. U-disc may soon have a League scoring feature that we will utilize once it is available. You can sign up for a free U-disc membership and it will allow you to keep score of a limited amount of rounds. Once those are full you will have to delete older rounds or upgrade to the premium version.Full Schedule

The score card needs to have:
- Date of round, corresponding to the proper course and day of play.
- Score for each player on each hole
- Please confirm scores with players before emailing in. A sent email will assume the score has been confirmed.
If the total score is incorrect, improperly recorded or missing, 2 penalty strokes are added to the correct total score.
So be diligent with your verification.
Conduct and Etiquette
We as members of Gophertown Disc Golf are public face of Saskatoon Disc Golf Inc. It is our goal as a group to present our sport in a positive and inspiring way to the public or others that may be using the park. Please one respectful of others while in the park and around people you don’t know. First impressions are important. Profane language should be held in check when among the group as a whole and when around the public using the park for other reasons. If you have a trucker mouth, don’t assume everyone is okay with you talking like that, especially if women or children are present. Drugs and alcohol are not allowed in the park or any other public areas. There are only a few garbage cans so don’t leave anything man-made on the ground or anywhere in the park. If you pack it in, then pack it out, or at least carry it with you to the next available garbage can and dispose of it properly. Your attention and consideration in this matter is greatly appreciated. Just because you see someone else doing something wrong doesn’t make it ok for you to follow suit. Lead by example to help enamour the reputation of our disc golf community so that growth of the sport and development of new courses can continue within the city.
As for course etiquette, the main things worth mentioning in order to keep everyone happy would be:
- If you want to play music for your round, you must okay it with your group first. Do not assume that people are okay with music playing while they come out to enjoy nature and zone in on something they love to do. Plus a big part of the game is being a part of the conversations and getting to know the other members. Ask the other members in the group if they mind, if 1 person says that they would rather not listen to music while playing, then do not play any music. This goes for league play and tournaments both.
- If the group behind you is on your heals and it looks like they will be constantly catching up to you – let them play through. It shows a courtesy and mindfulness of others that is in line with the image we wish to project to the public and other members of the disc golf community.
- People in the park not disc golfing have the right of way, if they are oblivious as to what your intentions are, politely inform them so they know where they need to be to avoid being hit by a disc, and give them some time to get there.
- Be respectful of the noise level when close to tee boxes and baskets so unnecessary distractions are avoided.
Other than that, have fun, meet new people, grow the community, and BANG CHAINS. Looking forward to seeing everyone out for another great season.
