“The Next Generation Tour Series provides a fun tournament experience for all amateurs leading to championships offering a competitive experience that mimics the focus, pressure and feel of our sport’s top professional events. Our strategic partnership with the Disc Golf Pro Tour includes the first-ever path for top amateurs transitioning into touring disc golf professionals.” said David Feldberg, Next Generation Tour Series Director.
“Disc Golf doesn’t have an equivalent to our sporting cousin’s Q-School and we think Next Generation Disc Golf may be onto something. We are excited to be a part of it.” stated Steve Dodge, Tour Director of the DGPT.
Disc Golf Course Review’s partnership includes coordinating and reporting tournament results, national standings, invitations for the regional and national championship tournaments and providing players with DGCR Round Ratings. A discounted premium membership to the DGCR site with exclusive Next Generation competitor features will be offered to all registrants.
“DGCR looks forward to this partnership!” posted Tim Gostovic, DGCR owner, on his forum.
“From my travel blog on DGCR to it being my go-to resource for course information, I’ve been a fan for years and bringing Tim’s talents onto the team directly translates into a better experience for our competitors.” praised Feldberg.
