The Community of Disc Golfers and About All Things Disc Golf

This is for all the ladies out there who enjoy disc golf, want to get better, are looking to make some new friends who enjoy disc golf, or just want to get some secret practice so you can whip up on all the guys you know......

I am happy to announce the creation of the highly anticipated Womens Disc Golf League that is starting up near Kalamazoo, MI!! This is all brought to you by yours truely, "Discin Deb" Ulmark, and Bree Densmore.....

Sunday, Sept. 27th at Coldbrook Park in Climax, MI at Noon. We are going to start out doing doubles. This way there is absolutely no pressure for anyone. Women of all levels are invited to join us! The total cost will be $5/week. $3 will go to payout (this will be a cash payout every week, payout to the top third of teams), $1 will go to the ace pool, and $1 will go towards the CTP's. Deb and I will be donating everything to the CTP's. There will be a minimum of two per week. As of right now, I have enough plastic and other random merch to last quite a while. The $1 that goes towards the CTP fund is going to be put into a pot and eventually we hope to get some money saved to make our own merch, or have a party for the ladies... we will see in time how this goes. Right now we are not going to collect any dues for the club, we are going to let it build up first and see how much interest there is out there. Hopefully by spring we will be well on our way....

As said above we will be doing doubles. We plan on creating the fairest teams possible, we will split up the expereinced players and team them up with the newer players, this will be done as random as possible. I will also be doing stat tracking for this, but the points will be based for individuals. If we play in foursomes (or a sixsome) the points will be awarded as follows: 3 points for a win, 2 points for a tie, and 1 for playing. I am hoping to find some sponsorship to send the top points earners to the USWDGC for next year. Not sure about how many spots, the more the merrier!

If anyone has any ideas, questions, comments, concerns, issues, ANYTHING AT ALL- send them my way! You can hit me up on here, look for me on Facebook, or send me an email at jenniferdombrowski@rocketmail.com. As said, I am looking for as much input as possible!

I have ideas for a club name, but am open for more suggestions! In time we will hold a vote!

No guys aloud UNLESS you wear a skirt and pay double- then and only then will we consider it!

Happy Discin!

I'm glad you are getting the disc rollin with your women only league @ Coldbrook. I hope you sign-up as many lady discers as you do replyer's.
As far as your "guy's allowed options"... do kilts count? I will pay double, but as far as the kilt...well...it is getting colder outside. Please defer to the kilt question. The best with your league. BTW...I'll let naming your league up to the ladies...I'm not going there.
I guess we could allow a kilt if you insist!
you will have to come to "Integration Day". We will do that once a month :)
I have more lady discers then I do repliers on here- that is a good thing. We will not be going for much longer this year, there is a lot of interest among the ladies to play Larry Labond's winter league.
Oh man, ya gotta keep going. This women's league is amazing. I have one silly idea for a name and it's the Calhoun Star-seekers.
Hey...where is the feminin bonding here. You just get the gal's going @ Coldbrook and then they bale for Oshtemo. Sheeesh. Well...if that happens... why don't you hold the league out at Oshtemo and mingle it in with Larry's Winter League? Maybe he would go for two leagues tied together. Anyway...I'm glad YOUR league was a numerical success.

Thanks to all who made a point to come to the meeting yesterday, thanks for all of the dedication and hard work. It was a huge success as we got a lot of ideas/issues panned out and on paper! For those of you who couldn't come, you missed out on a huge fantastic feast which was put together by Julie and I. The food was great! And a BIG thank you to Julie for opening up her home. For those who weren't there, I am including everything in this email that we decided to try out for this year.

* We will be starting up April 11th at Coldbrook park in Climax, MI, 1pm sharp we will figure out teams. Please try to be on time- I had a few complaints last year, and there were other ladies who wanted to show up but got discouraged because they were worried about timeliness with having to work in the evening. If we make a point to make teams as scheduled I think we will in time have a bigger crowd!

*There was talk about switching days. Sunday seemed to work best for everyone last year, lets see how that goes for this year. I think there will be people who want to play in tournaments this year, I plan on playing in maybe 5 or 6. I don't think this will be too affected! I do think Sunday is the most open day due to there being other leagues in the area.

*Cost/Payout: We will be doing a membership fee. This will be a one time fee of $15. You will receive a players package sometime in the summer- I am shooting for June at the latest! The package will consist of a shirt (you can let me know the size you want when you pay, a gateway disc, and a mini. Thanks to Gateway for the sponsorship! Once you have paid the one time fee of $15, there will be a weekly fee of $3. 100% of this money will go to the club. This money will be used to buy merch and hopefully get discs with a club stamp! I am also trying to have money go towards an overall payout at the end of the year as well as a party. And I am still shooting for Cash sponsorship for Woman's Nationals. If I can't get what we need, then possibly some of this money can go towards that, depending on what it builds up to and how much merch we want to buy for the club. If you chose not to be a member, then the weekly cost will be $4. In order to be eligible for any prizes/payout at the end of the season you must be a member!

* Running a tournament- There is lots of interest in doing this. Lets do it then! However, we need money to make this happen! This is also part of the reason that I am promoting the membership fee. Once we have money to invest into a tournment, the club will hopefully be able to make money from the tournament which will lead to more merch and bigger payouts! I would like to do something in the fall, this gives up time for planning and raising funds. Lets shoot for October/November.

*Ace Pool- this is optional! It is $1 and will carry over each week until it is hit! It is at $53 to start out with! At the end of the year we can do a shoot off for any money left in the pot, or we can carry it over again- we can take a vote at the end of the season!

*I will plan on doing 2 CTP's minimum per week. Anyone who wants to donate goodies to go towards CTP's feel free to do so! The more stuff the better! Also, non disc items would be awesome! Let me know if you have anything in mind that you think may be useful! There is no additional cost for the CTP's- all CTP's are provided from our awesome sponsorships as well as myself.

*Points- we are going to start doing points for everyone. This may be a little bit of a task for me, but I want to try it out and see how it works. It will work something like this: Points will be for each group. Lets say we have 8 ladies, 4 teams, so that would make 2 foursomes. There will be 3 points for a win (per group), 2 for a tie, and one for playing. Each person on the team will get these points. Then, there will be two bonus points for the overall winning team, and one bonus point for the overall second place team. Everyone will have a chance at points this way, and everyone will have a chance at being able to catch up if some gaps are created. We will have to try it out, I have played with the numbers on paper and so far I think it will work. I would like to send the top two (minimum) to Woman's Nationals this year. It will be held in September in North Carolina. I am shooting to pay for your entry fee and provide gas money. Camping accommodations are usually provided at this event. If you car pool then we may have money to send more then two people! I am excluding myself from being eligible for this!

*Singles Round- I like the idea of doing a singles round once a month. I think we will have to play this by ear though. Bree had some great suggestions, and I think I want to give that a go..... I want the league to be a newcomer friendly as possible. If we plan on a scheduled day for the singles round and then a few new people show up, I don't think it would work out ot the advantage, and this may be too intimidating for any newbies. However, lets tentatively plan on it once a month, and when it works out it works out! And, on the days that we do play singles lets do double points! The points will work out the same way as doubles, the only difference is you won't have a partner! I will still do all of the points/stats for non members, but remember you have to be a member by the end of the season to be eligible for goodies, prizes, and the Woman's Nats sponsorship (*assuming I get it!)

*Integration Day- Lets hold off on this. I love this idea, however, the aim and point of the woman's league is to be a newcomer as friendly. I am worried if we do this once a month, that'll be the day that all the newbies decide to come out and that would bring back the intimidation factor we are trying to avoid! Hopefully we can make that happen in the future!

*Woman's Nationals- if you can't tell by now I really want to work hard at promoting this and trying to get some of you new ladies to go to this event! All of my plans for this are tentative. We as a team really need to work hard to promote this league and build it up! If we do that, then we will be able to make this happen! I also have a couple people in mind that I am trying to work with in order to get a cash sponsorship so we won't have to dip into club funds. If we all work hard at club promotion I think it will be really easy to send people down!

Thanks for taking the time to read all of this. I have a TON of fresh fliers... I will go to all the courses this week to post them. If you are interested in a having a stack of em for yourself to stick in your car so you can hand em out just let me know and I will get more made up for you!

If there are any issues/ideas/questions/concerns, feel free to contact me! Email me, or call!
Hey, Jenny, are you guys at Coldbrook still, or Oshtemo?
Roger that! Thank you!

Bringing the thread back to life! Close to thirty members for the 2011 season and it has only just begun! Do you know any ladies in the area that would be interested in playing a woman's league? Doubles, Coldbrook Park (just east of Kalamazoo, MI), every Sunday from now through October. We draw for partners at 1pm. Beginner friendly, no experience necessary, no pressure, all are here to have fun and improve game.

FADE Gear donated 10 disc golf bags this year to the first ten women who become league members, show up two weeks in a row, and need a bag. Check out pictures of the first three ladies collecting their new bag at:







Wow, good for fade, those guys always seem ready to lend a hand.
FADE Gear loves the ladies!
