Momentum is building as the Scholastic Disc Golf Series moves to Two Mile Run Extension Disc Golf Course on October 19 and the final event at Knob Hill Park on November 1.
New entries from Springdale High School in the Allegheny Valley School District have tightened the races for the Pipe and Chains Trophy team award and the EDGE package of disc golf equipment.
Spirited play in the Middle School and High School divisions earned prizes and free lunches for the players at last weekend's event that was part of the Schenley Park League Final.
We are raffling off a box 0'disc golf stuff worth over $200 to benefit this year's series and tickets are available for the Nov. 1 drawing.
Check out the current standings and bring your friends out to play October 19 at Two Mile Run Extension Disc Golf Course!

PITTSBURGH – J. Gary Dropcho, 2015 PDGA Pro Disc Golf World Championships Tournament Co-Director, announced today that the Pittsburgh region will host the Professional Disc Golf Association 2015 World Championships. From August 2nd through August 8, 2015, four courses in our region will host the World Championships: Deer Lakes Park, Knob Hill Community Park, Moraine State Park Lakeview and Slippery Rock University, with the final day’s events being hosted by Slippery Rock University.
“We are really excited to host the PDGA World Championships here,” said Mr. Dropcho, who also serves as Course Superintendent of the Pittsburgh Flying Disc Society. “In addition to having an opportunity to showcase our region to the competitors and visitors, the event will have a significant financial impact.
