Announcing Heartland Women’s Disc Golf Series

I am pleased to announce a new women’s series right here in the Midwest: the Heartland Women’s Disc Golf Series!

I founded the Kansas City Disc Golf Diva’s league in 2011 and following that success we hosted the first annual KC Diva Spring Feeva event in 2015. In 2016, it was also a Women’s Global Event (WGE) and we filled our event with 89 players, the second largest Women’s Global Event overall.

I say this to point out the promising growth we’ve seen in women’s disc golf here in the Kansas City area.

It’s been on my heart to expand our reach and spread the love to more women, especially in the lower Midwest states. This past November while attending the Director’s Cup in Indiana, I had the pleasure of meeting PDGA Women’s Committee member, Erin Oakley. In chats with Erin, who is also the organizer of the Midwest Women’s Disc Golf Tour, I was inspired to take a leap of faith and move forward.

The Heartland Women’s Disc Golf Series was born! Teaming up with ladies from other states, our mission is to plant the seeds and provide support and resources to grow women’s disc golf leagues and events in the lower Midwest states: Kansas, Missouri, Nebraska, Iowa and Oklahoma.

The 2017 schedule is below. We hope to add more events soon. Please contact us if you are interested in hosting a women’s only event or even starting a women’s league in your area. We don’t have all the answers but we’d be happy to share tips and our experience with you.
