Gophertown League 2023
The Gophertown League 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. The 2023 regular season will run from the beginning of May to the end of July with playoffs in August. Playoffs will be similar to the Disc Golf Pro Tour where players with lower points will have to play for a chance to move onto the next week of playoffs. The final week of playoffs will have the trophy presentation and awards handed out.
Players must have a Saskatoon Disc Golf membership to participate in Gophertown League.
SDG Memberships are $30 and Gophertown League is $40.
There will be a Longest Make or Closest to the pin prize every week. Players are eligible to win once of each category. See Schedule for hole and category for prize.Sign Up Here!

Conduct and Etiquette
Please be respectful of other disc golfers and park users while in the park. Drugs and alcohol are not allowed in the park or any other public areas, no exceptions. Garbage bins are placed throughout the park, please dispose of your waste appropriately and do not litter. Your attention and consideration in this matter is greatly appreciated. Please avoid using profane language in and around the park, we wish to ensure the public park can comfortably be used by everyone in our community.
As for course etiquette, the main things worth mentioning in order to keep everyone happy would be:
- Non-disc golfing park users always have the right of way. Please ensure there is no risk of accidentally hitting a park user, a vehicle, or other disc golfers before throwing your disc.
- If you want to play music for your round, please ensure your group is comfortable with it before turning on music during your round. Ask all 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.
- If the group behind you is catching up to you – please let them play through. It shows a courtesy and mindfulness of others, and helps with the pace of play.
- 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. Looking forward to seeing everyone out for another great season.
