The 2013 Capital Classic

June 11, 2013


Since its first year in 2002, the Capital Classic has been the ODGC’s most prominent annual event. It has found homes at Jacques Cartier Park Disc Golf Course, Camp Fortune Disc Golf Course, and in 2008, they played at both!

Sanctioned as a C-Tier event, and an ODSA Provincial Disc Golf Gold Series Event, it is Ottawa’s only Professional Disc Golf Association tournament and attracts a fair amount of traveling players looking for a challenging course. The 2005 Capital Classic had an Ottawa record of 89 participants from all over North America!

TDed again this year by Mark Atos, the Classic will be battled on the Hill (CF DGC), June 22nd and 23rd. Camp Fortune DGC was installed on the Camp Fortune ski hill in 2005 and has undergone many layout changes since its inception. It is Ottawa’s most impressive course, with rough terrain, extreme elevations and tough pin placements. This is no walk in the park!

Disc Golf Demo Day in the Park, June 8th and 9th

June 3, 2013


Come play the greatest game you can play in a park. Hog’s Back Park will be transformed into the disc golf destination, featuring a competitive disc golf course, an family friendly introductory course, on site course pros, and disc manufacturers.

The Ottawa Disc Golf Club, in partnership with the Ottawa-Carleton Ultimate Association, Daredevil Discs, the Ontario Disc Sports Association and the Ultimate Disc Golf Store, are celebrating 15 years of disc golf in Ottawa. Celebrate with us.

The event will be open from 8-8 on Saturday June 8th, and 8-5 on Sunday June 9th. The event is free to play. There will be disc golf discs available at the park, free of charge, though you can use any style of disc or Frisbee to play.

“The first World Championships I attended in Des Moines, Iowa, had 800 players from all over the world. Girls, boys, ladies, men. The youngest was 7 and the oldest was 77. This is a game that can be played throughout your entire life.” – Geoff Penton (Ottawa Professional Disc Golfer)
