Statement to the players by the Tournament organizers...
On behalf of the Charlotte Disc Golf Club and Mecklenburg County Parks & Recreation, we welcome you to our little slice of disc golf heaven. Our club, Charlotte, and Mecklenburg County are hosting 1,125 players, their families and friends in what will be the largest disc golf tournament in the history of the sport. It is our pleasure to be a part of this great event.
The 2012 Worlds Host Committee and it's partners have been preparing for this for five years. In that time, a number of new courses have been added to Charlotte’s stable specifically for Worlds. This tournament will unfold over five days across 14 courses, the most ever used in a single disc golf event.
Among the courses are established gems Renaissance and Hornet’s Nest; newcomers Bradford, Eastway, Scrapyard and Plantation Ruins; skill-testers Nevin and Angry Beaver; plus veteran tourney courses Sugaw, Reedy and Kilborne. Together, the challenges of all 14 courses will determine World Champions in 9 Pro Divisions and 16 Amateur Divisions.
The schedule of events has been laid out with top priority given to player consideration. There is a maximum of two rounds a day, no fivesomes and a goal of 3-hour rounds. Ample time has been built in to allow for travel between courses and refreshing before evening functions. We want the only thing you’re concerned about to be how you play.
