Women in LOVE with Disc Golf!

1st Annual Ankeny Ladies & Junior’s Classic Disc Golf Weekend

1st Annual Ankeny Ladies & Junior’s Classic Disc Golf Weekend

I love seeing women step into the role of tournament director to start more women focused events. Alison Wiley, a long time disc golfer from Ankeny Iowa, is doing just that but has also created a special event for Junior players as well!
You’ll find registration for both events on DiscGolfScene here.

I asked Alison to share with us more about this unique, fun and family friendly event weekend.

After years of enjoying the atmosphere of women’s only tournaments I thought it was time to create our own here in the Des Moines area.
I would like to cordially invite you to the 1st Annual Ankeny Ladies & Junior’s Classic Disc Golf Weekend. Ladies will play Saturday, April 21st and Juniors (kids and teens) are on Sunday, April 22nd. There will be lots of fun disc golf and prizes for closest to the pin and “ring of fire” putting games. It will be held at Heritage Park in Ankeny Iowa. For the first year, there will be homemade trophies for 1st place in all divisions. These will be PDGA sanctioned disc golf tournaments to grow the sport in our local area. All PDGA women’s divisions will be offered and all juniors divisions as well.

After years of enjoying the atmosphere of women’s only tournaments I thought it was time to create our own here in the Des Moines area. My love of women’s only tournaments stems from attending the United States Women’s Disc Golf Championships in Peoria Illinois from 2002-2007. I had never felt such a feminine camaraderie in such a male dominated sport until then. Naturally when the KC Divas started hosting their own women’s only tournament in 2015 I had to be a part of it! Four years later and I wouldn’t miss it for the world.

I also grew up playing in the juniors division at a time when there weren’t many other children playing disc golf. I now have children of my own and it’s time for them to play disc golf in the junior divisions and play with other kids who share their same passion.

We hope to grow this event exponentially by next year so be sure to check out our inaugural events. It’s time to grow the sport within these two realms and we would love for you to attend.

Sincerely,
Alison Wiley
